GUESS WHO’S BACK.
And I have GREAT NEWS!!!
I’ve been completely out of the competitive Fighting game ring as I’ve just been busy with real worlding it up with full time work and also Still on the Pro Circuit for the Marvel/DC Vs System Card game(Did I mention I got 22nd place at the last Pro Circuit and got a check for 3200 bucks.) Sure beats Winning Evo, but anyways on to the GOOD NEWS!!!.
There’s a new place in Orlando, FL Called www.beatthebox.com.
Just imagine 20 50 inch HDTV Widescreen TV’s, complete with rumbling chairs for the maximum Experience all under their own Sound Domes. Imagine this, THEY SERVE BEER AND ALCOHOL there.
I just went to the grand opening, And I was mighty impressed. The great news is the Main owner Shyloh, was one of the nicest guys I’ve met and a true Gamer.
He heard of my history with tournaments and videogames, and he said Alex, Whatever you need is yours, throw a tournament here anytime.
So I Come to you guys, Wanting to know, if I threw another big tournament, is there enough people to warrant the 100+ turnouts we had at some of the UCF Tournaments.
Prizes will be cash, he said anything I want I can do, Granted their setback right now is all their systems are Xbox’s, But I’ve convinced them to buy a few PS2’s for the general public for reasons you could think of on your own.
Well To end this since I’m at work right now as usual,
I want to throw a tournament, I just saw FR9 is in April So I don’t want to interfere with that. So I’m thinking of a middle week in March (March 24th-26th I’ll be in Atlanta for the next pro circuit) And of course on a Saturday.
I don’t want to overload it with too many games since this is a tryout to see the turn out So What I want to run is this.
Soul Calibur 3/Tekken 5 Just cause I admire that game and think they still have a big following.
Cvs2 or SF3: 3rd Strike depending on the majority voting.
And of Course MvC2 if enough guys will come out for it.
This place can become the new Florida Mecca for tournaments. So I need everyone’s Help as I know we can pull everyone together for some fun just like the good ol’ days.
So I need everyone’s positive feedback and what you think.
Of course This place isn’t greedy and isn’t out to take all the money, So i worked out an agreement to have at least a buy in to go to them, then the buy in for each game will go into the Prize Pool, ALL OF IT.
Hope everyone is well,
Alex FN JEBAILEY
PS. There’s a convention January 20th-29th Called www.Otronicon.Org coming to the Orlando Science Center,
Yours truly was emailed and asked to participate in somehow so they gave me 2 one hour seminars on The Saturdays at 1 pm In their Big Darden Theater, to talk about videogaming and have a Q&A. I’m still working out what I’ll be doing, DDR is one of their big featured games so I’ll be doing DDR Demo’s as well, just gotta get back into shape with it.
You can check on my Website at www.alexjebailey.com to contact me or see updates when I get things settled, I’ll have the registration up and all that just like last time.
