This year should be interesting as there are a BUTTLOAD of Japanese players coming over to compete. Very curious what's going to happen with USFIV, KoF and UMvC3 with all of them there.

Regarding Super Smash Bros. Melee

Last year’s Smash event was amazing, and what the Smash community has done over the last year has been inspirational. We still have room in our lineup for Smash, and we’re in discussions with Nintendo regarding a possible role for Smash in 2014. Here is a statement from Nintendo regarding the situation.


"While we are engaged in preliminary discussions with Evo about their upcoming event in July, the potential role of any Nintendo software at this event is undetermined at this time."


We’ll update you as soon as we have more information.


I don't know why Nintendo would even be on the fence about this. Seriously. WHY THE FUCK WOULD THIS BE A BAD THING?

Something interesting about the Road to Evo System.

Quote

In addition to the lineup announcement, Cuellar mentioned that they will be redesigning the Road to Evo system. Instead of designating multiple tournaments official stops, the organizers will take in results from events over the course of the year in an attempt to seed players in their respective games. This system is still being worked on so expect more concrete information in the near future.

I will definitely be attending this year. No doubt about it.

When looking for jobs in this field where do you look/what do you do?

I recently moved to Denver and have been looking on Monster, CareerBuilder, DICE and even craigslist for Entry level/internship/Junior programming jobs.

Was curious how you all are looking or found your current job in the field.

Also, any tips would be helpful. Really. Any tips at all.
