EVO 2009! The spinning blue globe's longest-running fighting game tourney is just around the corner β€” kicking off July 17 in Las Vegas.

This year's EVO will feature the likes of Daigo, Alex Valle, John Choi and Justin Wong and a special appearance by Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono.

For those of you who cannot make it to Vegas, good news! You can watch the fighting via a live stream. It's like Sin City coming to the comfort of your own home, but minus the free flowing booze, gambling and strippers β€” unless your home already has those covered. Lucky you!
