With EVO's Friday and Saturday being mostly lighthearted days of competition and convention-like time with a few finals matches thrown in, Sunday Finals feels like a completely different event. Once again, the Sunday Finals graced the stage of the Mandalay Bay Events Center, with some of the matches being streamed on actual television. The atmosphere was electric, not unlike seeing a more traditional sporting event, and I could not be happier to be there in person.
The Evolution Championship Series, or EVO for short, celebrated its 15th year as one of the biggest, hypest fighting game tournaments in the world this year, and I was lucky enough to be able to cover it from pools to finals.
Ladies and Gentlemen, It's here! Today brings us yet another Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer, but this time it offers us a significant amount of information.
Parappa the Rappa 2 was a pretty highly regarded cult game, and it's not without good reason. It's got a fun art style and catchy music, with a decent rhythm game mechanic. And it recently got a PS2-to-PS4 re-release, complete with trophies, but maybe there's a reason we didn't see more Parappa in its heyday.
Editor's note: we've been really busy here at A-to-J and apologize for the timing of this review. It's not the writer's fault!
It's really hard to write a review about a game I couldn't easily take screenshots of, and one that has an outright request to keep things as spoiler-free as possible from the developer, but I'm going to try.
