Someone invent teleporters already

I want to go to Evo.

There is no good reason for this. Even if I played nothing but Street Fighter between now and July I would still go two and out. While I do learn new games a little faster than average, Street Fighter X Tekken will have been out too long for that to be an advantage. Honestly, I am not even sure I want to participate in the tournament itself, I just want to be present for it. I want to stand shoulder to shoulder with all the other fans, get hyped at the good matches and boo the bad ones. I meet up with people that I have played against online and out a face to a screen name. Watching a stream all by myself at my desk is no substitute.

But flying to Vegas costs money and driving from the great midwest would cost even more. Staying in Vegas also costs money, to say nothing of the time I would lose to it.

In case you can't tell, I didn't really play anything last night. All I had time to do was drop in the lobby and get bodied twice. That was interrupted by a call from the guy renting my old house (yes, I own two houses, this is not a good thing) that the basement was flooding. Cure packing up my shop vac and driving there at 9:30 PM. Not exactly a fun evening. I am sure this urge will pass as the date grows closer, and if not there are plenty of other games to distract me. I am about to play Final Fantasy XIII-2 on the 360 of all places. Seeing the logo on a non-Sony system just feels wrong.
