Interesting ill be there


#3

Too much sex, forces me to attend this tourny


#4

i’ll be more than likely.


#5

Is Marvel on Dreamcast? The 360 and PS3 version kinda suck ass for tourney standards.


#6

Its a free tourny, hehe I don’t think they will go out of there way for some DCs. But I agree, XBOX360/PS3 mvc2 is ass mostly, still fun tho.

Any word on a tentative schedule?


#7

Eh i wasnt expecting it just hoping. Lets just hope its not just a bunch of Cables doing the new freaking instant unblockable AHVB glitch all day.


#8

Thtat is gonna be me, lmao


#9

MvC2 will be on the DC.


#10

Sweet!

Update

As part of our Twin Galaxies competitions, we will be hosting 2 Smash Bros. Brawl challenges. Beating either one gives you the title of world record holder and your name will be published in the next high score publication from Twin Galaxies (could be Guinness 2010…)

Smash Bros. Brawl - Wii - Hit the sandbag the furthest in the home run contest. Separate records are kept for each character, so you can choose your favorite character or choose the character whose record you think is easiest to topple.

Smash Bros. Brawl - Wii - Defeat as many opponents as you can with one life in Endless Brawl.


#12

Any idea what day(s) the SF4/BB/Rock Band tournies are?

BB is Saturday at 12pm
Rock Band is Sunday at 11am

I’ll have the complete schedule, tournaments included, on the site later today.
