Just a reminder that there are two big arcade events happening in two different parts of the world this fine summer weekend.
First is the expo all fighter fans look forward to, EVO 2009 in Las Vegas. So far it sounds like turnout has been exceptional to the event and thanks to reader Chris Ainsworth, here is a link to some photos of the first day.
UPDATE: Thanks to Aaron Auzins, here is a link to some live streams from the event provided by Capcom: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/evochampionship
Next up, Insert Coin in Northampton, UK. There is a lot of fighting goodness to get there as well but on top of that they have many other types of games. The news page for Insert Coin (which includes a Twitter feed that is being constantly updated by Kevin Williams of the Stinger Report) can be found here.
