OLD SCHOOL ONSLAUGHT is back for the sixth time at Arcade Legacy in Cincinnati, OH! Besides the classic OSO tournament, we will be having a couple other old school tournament games - SUPER DODGE BALL (NES) and Starfox 64 (4-player battle royale style). In addition, we will be having a few more tournaments in the evening. Persona 4 Arena. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Vampire Savior. People’s Choice (VF5FS).
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 game as opposed to each round in a standard mystery tournament. That means you will see upwards of 50 different classic, horrible, hilarious and sometimes almost unplayable old school fighting games. I am constantly trying to obtain obscure fighting games, so there is always new stuff. 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. Only those who have come to previous OSO tournaments may have seen or played any of these games once or twice. That’s the beauty of OLD SCHOOL ONSLAUGHT.

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 + the $50 pot bonus to the winner if we get 30+ people! 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.
