The best fighting game players in the world converge and clash in Bally's/Paris hotel and casino at Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend. Evo 2015 is back, and it's bigger than ever. The tournament's organizers will be live-streaming on Twitch (embedded above) with some excellent commentary from the fighting game community's most recognizable names. The most noteworthy commentator would have to be Seth Killian, the former Capcom community manager and former lead designer at Sony Santa Monica, and it's great to hear his expert knowledge, insight, and overall love for fighting games while playing.
