YOUMACON 2012 starts today

By  November 1st, 2012 at 12:24 pm


Detroit, MI – While some of us has been to your typical “CON” which showcases cosplay, comics and other entertainment all in one, YOUMACON 2012 adds the competitive fighting gaming scene that normally is held on it’s own.  YOUMACON Battle Opera as they call it is supported by some by familiar names in the gaming industry such as Hori, Mad Catz and Level|Up.  Held in Detroit, MI at COBO Hall, this tournament could easily be one of the larger fighting game events that is not affiliated with the rest of the fighting game tournament scene today, at least not yet.   Best yet, there are bonus cash prizes for various games, such as SF IV AE, UMvC3 and KOF XIII.  If you are in the area, definitely head over and compete or at least check it out.

We are sending our pro gamer, Arcadeshock Reynald to compete in KOF XIII and Persona as well to support the scene.  Good luck to everyone competing.

UPDATE  11/04/2012: 

Congratulations to Arcadeshock Reynald for taking top spot in both KOF XIII and Persona 4.  We will post the full results once we get our hands on them.

TGS 2012: Spreading Smiles through Games

By  September 24th, 2012 at 9:49 pm


Another year in the Land of the Rising Sun.  Of all the shows we attend, TGS is our favorite.  If you haven't been to one, you should definitely make an effort.  Like the rest of Japan, the overall level of service and detail to presentation is top notch.  In a word, it's "boutique" service that is provided at TGS, especially when the first two days of the show is primarily for the Business/Media group, with the last two days (4 Day Show) is open to the Public audience, which we avoid at all costs as it's absolutely nuts.  So what's new this year and is there really anything that stands out?  For sure.  Click on the link to read more....

Sanwa Denshi unveils new Convex Style Pushbuttons

By  September 21st, 2012 at 5:33 pm


The pushbutton market just got a bit more interesting as Sanwa Denshi Ltd just recently unveiled their "convex" style pushbuttons.  This style gives the button a little outward curve to it.  While it's application will be debated on whether they are ideal for certain gaming genres, fighting/shooting or even DJ use, it's a nice and welcome addition to their growing lineup.   The feel of the button is best described as an 'in-between' their clear and solid colored buttons with the signature Sanwa craftsmanship and response time.

ReveLAtions 2012 Tourney Aug 17-19, Santa Monica CA

By  July 29th, 2012 at 2:28 am


Tournament Legacy once again is holding their annual Revelations tourney not only supports the fighting games we love,  SF4AE, UMvC3, Persona 4, Tekken 6, MK9, Skullgirls and King of Fighters XIII, but backs it up with big cash pots for each one.  If EVO is considered the finale of the tournament season, a new beginning is just right around the corner.

This year, it will be held in Santa Monica, CA, which is known for it’s incredible beaches and views and hope those who are not local wanting to go, that you have a friend you can bum a couch with because getting hotel in this area will frighten you.  There’s always sleeping on the beach, right?

Once again, we will be sending our AS|Reynald to compete in KOF XIII where we know there will be some of the strongest KOF XIII players from So Cal to join him.

UPDATE 08/18/2012 11:00 AM:   Lol.  That is all we can say about their KOF XIII Pot Prize.  Flash it in your face and back out.  That is a knee slapper for sure.  Yeah, they canceled the tournament because they either didn’t have the funds or didn’t feel it was worth giving out because of the low number of entries.  Whatever the reason, having players waste their time and gas and more importantly, future support…is what they earned.  Refunds will be coming in by the truckload and bye bye Tournament Legacy next year.

Location:  The Santa Monica Place
