What is Heroes World?
-We're a hobby shop located directly in the corner of Hwy 7 and Warden Avenue (big plaza with Shoppers Drugmart, No Frills, Futureshop, McDonalds etc). We Specialize in almost anything hobby related including Comic Books, Toys, Boardgames, Miniature Games and Boardgames, so it's only a natural progression that we dive into the video game scene. We have a fairly big store (about 2300 square feet) and have a dedicated gaming room that will houses many types of events.
What else is in the Heroes World Plaza?
Available in the same plaza as Heroes World:
Shoppers Drug Mart
Cora's Breakfast & Lunch
Milestone?s Grill & Bar
Mr. Felix and Norton Cookies
Menchies (Frozen dessert)
TD Canada Trust Bank
What kind of equipment does Heroes World have?
-Screens: Several different computer monitors that can be used for gaming
-Systems: Mostly xbox 360s, but we have access to ps3s as well
-Joysticks: We have two modified Tatsunoko Vs Capcom Madcatz sticks that work on Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3.
So what if I gotta pee?
Bathroom on site!
Who runs these shindigs at Heroes World?
-that would be me Jon Ho aka "coolasice". I work here at Heroes World and will be running most of the events. While not the most experienced in Street Fighter events, I have over 8 years experience in running various gaming tournaments (Magic the Gathering, Warhammer, Warmachine, etc) so I'm learning the video gaming scene and hope to run fair and fun tourneys for you guys. I'm new to the "competitive" Street Fighter scene coming from a more casual background. I'm eager to learn but will most likely get my butt kicked the more "pro" players...but this is not really relevant since when I'm running an event I will not be playing.
So that means Street Fighter all the time at Heroes World?
-sadly no. Running the set-ups takes time and space...which we are sometimes limited on. We'll be posting up schedules of events and stuff like that but unless you see it posted here or chat with me at the shop there won't be anything running. You should however post up if you do what events on certain days or whatever so we can get an idea of what you'd like to see happen
Is all this FREE?
-again sadly no. We are a business and as such we require funds to operate. We'll usually be charging some kind of venue Fee to cover mostly cost of equipment, staff and time. While as a player i'd love to offer free sessions we have costs to cover...for example if a Xbox RRODs or Joystick buttons get smashed there is a cost in replacing/repairing these things
I only got in one game!
-I am a pretty fair person, so if you ever attend a session and feel you are not getting your money's worth please let me know and I will be happy to discuss the situation and most likely give you your money back or give you your next session free.
I wanna help out what can I do?
-best thing you can do is to come out to events and have a good time! But if your looking for more, Heroes World always can use help in running events and getting the word out. You got joysticks or screens or something your willing to bring in? then awesome...more gaming for everyone. Please don't hesitate to contact me via PM, or even stop by the shop to chat about any ideas you many have! I been approached by many players that simply want to help grow the community which is awesome!
Fight Stick Modding?
-I am adapt in basic fight stick repairs and maintenance. I am more than willing to help out when I can. We also have an artwork modder and electric modder within our group so if your looking for somebody to do some modding let me know and i'll set you up with them.
Please post up whatever other questions or suggestions you may have! or even just post up to say what's up?
