Evo 2014 is just days away, bringing together the best competitive fighting game players from around the world to compete across multiple titles. After a briefly troubled history last year, Super Smash Bros. Melee has long been confirmed for this year's event.

Evo will be streamed fully online, and there's so much going on that there'll even be two dedicated channels — three if you count a Capcom-only version.

I can't wait for Evo to get started. Last years Evo was great! I'm sure this one will be as well, and the fact Nintendo is sponsoring is awesome!

All of Sunday will be amazing. Probably will watch the pools and semis for Blazblue and Ultra SF4. And I'll catch KOF XIII grand finals.

I wonder if Nintendo will reveal a new character or trailer once Melee Finals are done, like how Capcom revealed Ultra SFIV last year. Nintendo is one of the sponsers at this year's EVO so it's a possibility.

@vamkar lol has to prove first it has the capacity to be played competitively. EVO takes the games it accepts very seriously. And after brawl the idea that a new smash bros will be competitive is questionable.

Wonder if they will reveal a character at EVO considering they are sponsoring this year. Such a massive turnaround from last year.

@unrandomsam it still has to prove itself. There is no benefit to using the arcade box version over the console version unless there are serious problems like marvel input lag on ps3 version. Otherwise the control scheme is the same. Most fighting games use a fight stick and in the case of melee the controller. I fail to see how console versions being used makes it so smash 4 doesn't need to prove itself to be a good competitive game before attending evo, the biggest fighting game tournament.

Decade old game that's been my top 5 games ever list for 12 years.
I'm in an anime event this weekend so I'll watch great Melee matches later when I have time. Would like to watch it live though.
