Seattle Gameworks to host it's own Fight Club tournament

April 9, 2009

gameworks

Not long ago we reported that the Sega Gameworks in Phoenix Arizona had scheduled it’s own “Fight Club” tournament and now, the Seattle Gameworks is following in their footsteps. It does help that these recent tournaments have been organized by the same individual, so they are staying fairly consistent across the board in how they are being handled. The Fight Club at the Seattle GameWorks will take works on April 24th-26th and if you would like to sign up, the information should be on the GameWorks website within the next day. The games that will be on location for the competition: Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 and Street Fighter IV. For more details on how the tournament will go down (it is similar to the other fight club tourney), the details have been tucked in after the post break. BTW, the prize pool is over $1000, with the first place winner bagging $500 in cash.

EVO Championship Series 2009 Game line-up announced

February 4, 2009

Everybody’s favorite arcade fighter tournament, the Evolution Championship Series (aka EVO) is slowly coming up (it happens in July in good ol’ Las Vegas) and as such they have revealed the list of games one can expect to find if they go to the event. So if you fancy any of the games on the list and you want to compete, there is plenty of time for you to get in some practice. The games are:

Street Fighter IV

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix

Soul Calibur IV

Marvel Vs. Capcom 2

Street Fighter III: Third Strike

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core

Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom (Exhibition)

Strangely BlazBlue is missing from the list but that is likely because the console version hasn’t come along yet, which is too bad really. It also would be awesome to see KOFXII there which will be available by July but I guess this is more of a “games that appeared on arcades but are available on consoles” sort of thing as all the games will be running on a console of sorts instead of a proper arcade machine.  They also dropped Super Smash Bros. Brawl from the tournament so no luck there in case you happen to be a champion at that game but on on these other fighters.Either way it looks like a good line-up and should prove to be quite an entertaining competition to watch.
