What is Evolution Championship Series? I like to think of it as the World Series, the World Cup, the Super Bowl of fighting games. Every summer, players from all over the world head to Las Vegas to compete in the biggest fighting game tournament in the world. This year, just as past years, is the biggest attendance since its inception.
Sorry for missing last week’s edition of Mind-Blowing Combos. I’ve been really busy lately but I plan to make it up. I wanted to choose a game with non-stop mind-blowing madness. This week’s video is from Hokotu no Ken or as we Americans know it, Fist of the North Star.
If you aren’t ready for the hype, you’re in the wrong place my friend. This weekend will have the most hyped streams from all over the world.
Starting today and all weekend, is the 3rd annual PowerUp tournament. A Road To EVO 2012 event, PowerUp will be hosting a massive lineup of games and the list of AAA players keeps growing. Continue reading
Their list includes minor upset over PS3 exclusive characters, inconsistent PR lies for the lack of same system co-op mulitplayer for the Xbox 360, and it’s big controversy over downloadable content that’s already on the disc. Continue reading
None other than Cheese Monster Poongko takes top pick with his insane skills, über trolling, and mind-blowing combos. The featured video up top shows Poongko dominating the online competition, but the most entertaining part of the video doesn’t start till the 10:55 mark.

Tomorrow is Friday and its that time again. This has been one insane week of some mind-blowing fights. Top video this week comes from Japan’s finest showing off their incredible skills in SSF4AE2012. Coming to a close second is a great match SFxt from Alex Valle vs Mattwi. And last but not least, FingerCramps own Chris G straight up exposed at Final Round XV by PZ Mihe. Don’t want to spoil it but my mind was blown as I never seen what I saw before in UMVC3… Lets just say Chris G showed his own version of the Floe Face. Honorable mention goes Poongko, the Cheese Monster blowing it up in SFxT. Continue reading
