After a lengthy consideration process, this year's EVO games are now locked in -- and they're slated to be revealed this week, EVO Championship Series founding member Joey 'Mr. Wizard' Cuellar announced on Twitter today.

I hope you're ready to find out which fighting game titles will be made the main games at EVO this year. If not, well, you have slightly more than 24 hours to brace yourselves. For as it turns out, by "this week", what Mr. Wizard really means is "tomorrow night". Time to get hype, fighting game fans!

That's when a special EVO 2015 announcement Twitch stream is scheduled to happen (starting at 7PM PST). Mr. Wizard is making a trip down to the streaming service provider's offices for this live stream, and he will be joined by Twitch's very own Mike Ross for the broadcast. On top of revealing the EVO 2015 line-up, Mr. Wizard will also be taking questions from the stream monsters.

So make sure to come watch the stream here with us here on EventHubs tomorrow evening (it'll be on the front page as soon as the stream goes live), as we find out what this year's EVO main games are going to be.

Until then, watch the official EVO 2015 trailer below, and tell us your predictions of what the EVO 2015 line-up will be like. Which Smash title will be a main game this year?

What's better than 2 amazing comebacks in one set? How about 3... against Nemo! Combofiend and ApologyMan show off in these impressive compilations

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is a game that you just don't give second chances in. Capcom's own Combofiend and MMG|ApologyMan show us exactly why in these two most recent comeback compilations from XusesGB.

Combofiend has a sequence wherein he faces off against BT|MarlinPie at SoCal Regionals 2013. Pie has him on the ropes in two separate occasions and Combofiend brings it back both times from the brink.

ApologyMan squares off against Japan's BT|Nemo in a first to 7 set. He finds himself at a huge deficit not once, not twice but in three different matches and yet somehow manages to turn the tables every time.

Hit the jump to see Spencer and Super Skrull hold their own.

Armada's forever float, J-Wong's unbelieveable play and Evil Daigo's Ume-demon: Highlight reel from B.E.A.S.T., KIT, and Canada Cup Masters Series

With three major tournaments this weekend, there has been no shortage of amazing game play.

Though there were many to chose from, we grabbed our favorite moments from each of the three events and have posted them here for you.

The first of these comes from Europe's biggest Super Smash Bros. major, B.E.A.S.T. V.

To set the stage, we have an old favorite. Alliance|Armada's Peach faces off against C9|Mango's Fox.

This is the first set of Melee Losers finals and we find ourselves with both players down to their final lives. Percentages were decently high, but neither player was in extreme danger quite yet.

Armada forces Mango off the edge of the stage and gives chase. This is what ensues:

Click images for animated versions

Using Peach's parasol to slow his decent, Armada stays afloat just long enough to see Mango pass the death line. Armada's display of knowledge here is incredible. He knew how far both characters had to fall, how long Fox could stay afloat, how long Peach could stay afloat and calculated it down seemingly to the nanosecond. Mind. Blown.

That was just moment #1. Hit the jump to see the rest!

While it's certainly no secret that Nova and Dr. Strange are one of the most compatible pairs in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, it's always interesting to see character specialists like Marvelo bring out new tech, as well as showing the utility with other assists than, for example, the typical Spencer.

Genius to SSStylish, watch Cloud 805 and Chris G bring it all the way back in these Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 comeback compilations

You can never count a good UMVC3 player out. Chris G and KIT|Cloud805 show us why in these excellent comeback compilations put together by XusesGB.

The common factor between these two players? Vergil. Surprisingly enough this is not at all a Vergil parade. These players are so versatile that they can make the impossible happen with a whole list of different characters.

Whether you're a Marvel player or not, these videos are inspiring. These two make it look so easy to be good at this game.

Cloud's ability to win with Dante without the help of X-factor or assists is fairly amazing in itself and Chris G's ability to use so many different characters at such a high level is one of the things that separates him from the rest of the crowd.

Hit the jump and check out these crazy comebacks!

I present to you the much more common scenario than some of us have imagined. Everyone on your team is down except one, red scarf wearing ninja. Sound like a problem? It isn't if you're BT|Clockwork.

If you like watching some fantastic Marvel mix-ups or orbs and birds flying across the screen, then you will find yourself thoroughly entranced by this long-respected player going to work.

In the wise words of Splinter, "The greatest truth of the ninja [is] that ultimate mastering comes not from the body, but the mind."

Check out the video below to witness Clockwork getting into the heads of his opponents.

UMvC3 a dead game?! El Gato's Firebrand TAC Infinite tech has something to say about that

It's hard to believe that it's already been over three years since Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 came out. Time sure flies when you're having fun, huh?

In those three years, a great deal of tech for the game has been discovered, causing top players to reexamine and reevaluate every aspect of the game and its roster. It's been a good three years for Marvel.

But with no planned game updates or a sequel down the pipeline, the future for UMvC3 certainly looks bleak. With so much tech already uncovered for the game, some may have began to wonder: could UMvC3 already be completely figured out? Is the game already dead?

Before you answer those obviously rhetorical questions, take a look at what Firebrand has to say about the situation.

This is a creature who calls the realm of death his home. And since he hails from Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, that makes this Capcom character the perfect one to comment on whether or not UMvC3 is a dead game -- after all, UGnG is clearly a dead game. So Firebrand is an expert on the subject.

Today, the great Firebrand has chosen to speak out through a trusted medium that Marvel fans grown to respect over the years: El Gato.

The great Firebrand has given to UMvC3 tech video maker El Gato a brand new TAC infinite, the likes of which you've never seen Apologyman perform.

The Doomfinite just got better: Tech for Dr. Doom that allows him to hit his team aerial combo infinite on the entire cast... GGs

What percentage of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 teams have Dr. Doom on them? It's got to be at least in the high 70's which means there's a good chance this information is pertinent to you!

Bass IIV has discovered a new style of Doom TAC infinite starters in the corner. Unlike the current version, these work on the entire cast.

We should mention, it doesn't have any height restrictions and it's fairly simple to get started. So Dr. Doom just got better... sorry.

Watch PR Balrog, Justin Wong and RayRay show off why they're the amongst the top UMVC3 players in these amazing comeback videos!

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is a game that allows extremely little room for error. A single touch from your opponent and you find yourself at a huge disadvantage as combos take off 50%-100% of a life bar at a time. What's more, once you begin to lose your team, you lose resources as you can no longer use assists to pressure, mix-up and defend with.

The moment wherein a player goes down to a single character against their opponent's three, a change happens. Any comfort that was there before is gone. Momentum is working utterly against them. Play has to become perfect as they dance around the screen trying to avoid attacks from not one, but three other characters.

This is a time wherein many players crumble mentally and that final tag becomes all too easy to land. There are a few players who enter this scenario and somehow they become more focused. It's the ability to perform in such dire situations that separates the goods from the greats. EG|Justin Wong, EG|PR Balrog and CTRL|RayRay are greats. Below are three compilation videos showcasing each of these players' uncanny abilities for UMVC3 comebacks.

Hit the jump and check out the comebacks!

EventHubs lists top 30 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players in 2014, #6 - #1 - voice your opinions on Twitter: #UMvC3rank

It's that time of year once again, folks! Tonight we return with our top players list for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This time around, we're sharing our picks for the 30 best warriors in 2014.

The EventHubs team met up once again to vote on each player based on tournament results since the last time we compiled this list, factoring in player skill across the globe and personal opinion.

The players listed here have performed at big events consistently, and players who haven't traveled much outside of their region were not included because it's a bit too difficult to judge them based on their performances only in the local area.

We have given each player a score between 1 - 10, then averaged all of the numbers together. Today we have player #6 - player #1 listed.

If you'd like to join the discussion, or want to tear our heads off for our choices (again), you can voice your opinions about our list on Twitter using the hashtag "#UMvC3rank." You can also share your thoughts in our comments section, as usual.
