Going to be in Vegas for EVO next week? If you take your competition seriously, you may be hoping to get some practice for a grueling tournament environment before diving headlong into the championships. That’s why we recommend paying a visit to the Press Start Gaming Center for their fourth annual pre-EVO event!
