A gigantic web has been spun through Dave & Buster's in New York, where the competitors are battling it out for the right to be declared King of the Monsters! Killer Instinct has had a strong tournament running today, fueled by the many players who came out to test their skills! Notable names included G4S KT Smith, C88 Grief, GFromTheStreets, and the Evolution champion SteamCo CD Jr. Would Junior add to his glorious streak of tournament victories, or would it be ended by the rise of a new terror?! Only today's tournament could answer that question! Click to read more!...
