OLD SCHOOL ONSLAUGHT is back for the THIRD time at ARCADE LEGACY in Cincinnati, OH! Besides the classic OSO tournament, we will be having a couple other old school tournament games like GOLDENYEYE (N64), DR. MARIO (NES) and BOMBERMAN (SNES). There’s almost always a few old school impromptu side games that happen. In addition, we will be having a couple teams tournaments in the evening. Super Street Fighter IV 3v3. Guilty Gear XXAC 2v2. Street Fighter III: Third Strike 2v2.
If you are unfamiliar with how OSO is run, read on. Instead of essentially one big mystery game fighting tournament, each individual match is a different games as opposed to each round in a standard mystery tournament. That means you will see upwards of 30 different classic, horrible, hilarious and sometimes almost unplayable old school fighting games. Some truly hilarious moments have come out of the two previous tournaments. And of course there is KART FIGHTER! I promise it will not be the final round this time. I will have something just as menacing though. This is ANYONE’S game. No one really has the upper hand here because no one really plays these games anymore or ever did in most cases. That’s the beauty of OLD SCHOOL ONSLAUGHT. It’s anyone’s game. Now is the chance for the underdog to shine.

One person for each match will randomly pick a card that has the game to be played written on it. Best 3 out 5 for each game including all finals. That’ll give you a few matches to get good at the game quickly. No character is banned. If you know enough about any of these games to infinite someone, you deserve to win. Double Elimination. The pot will be split 70/20/10 (or 60/20/10/5/5 if we get more than 30 entrants) & there will be a rad prize for the winner! You can bring your own controller if you have one for these systems, but we will have pads available and some sticks. A few of the games will be on arcade machines. Keeping with OSO tradition, the FINAL MATCH will be on a game that very few, if any, of you guys have seen or played so the playing field will be fairly level.
