We are on the air with another episode of FGHQ, ladies and gentleman, and we are happy to say we are finally on the Road to EVO!
All of the greatest games out there have made it here to FGHQ to join us tonight and here they are now!
Here's the greatest tag team direct from Japan, the ANIME GAMES!
And from down south we've got the baddest hombre around, KING OF FIGHTERS XIV!
And look at this brooding fellow! We've got everyone's favorite loner, INJUSTICE 2!
Everyone here is just thrilled to be--wait, what's this now? Oh come on, not these jokers!
Look who's coming down to start trouble, the Outsiders, SMASH 4 and MELEE! Y'know I really can't stand these guys, they always have to stick their noses into tournament and--OH NO, what's happening?
Look at that, oh no they are just tearing EVO apart! What are we going to do, who will step in to save EVO?!
Look who's here! It's STREET FIGHTER V, coming in to rescue us all! WAIT, NO! WHAT IS HE DOING?
STREET FIGHTER IS THE THIRD MAN! HE'S BETRAYED US ALL! BETRAYED THE FGC!
"The first thing you gotta realize is this is the future of professional gaming! This is the NINTENDO WORLD ORDER of eSports, brother!"
WHAT IS FGHQ GOING TO DO NOW? There's no fighting game out there that can stop the NWO. The FGC doesn't stand a chance. Hold on, no...what's this? Coming down from the rafters...
Look there, it's TEKKEN 7! Tekken has come to save us, he's going to take on the NWO!
But we're out of time, folks! We'll catch you on Thunder!
