It’s a bit of light week in terms of number of events, but the events that are going on this week are pretty killer. Combo Breaker is a huge fighting game and I’d love to attend some day, if for no other reason than to watch some live Darkstalkers action again, and Dota 2’s major this week is one of the most exciting I’ve caught all year.
Combo Breaker is one of the biggest fighting game events of the year, running tons of tournaments for major games like Dragon Ball FighterZ, Street Fighter V, and Tekken 7, as well as more obscure titles, like Darkstalkers, Skullgirls, and of course, the traditional mystery game tournament.
