Excellent…its official…good job Ranma etc getting stuff set up!!!

What about Tekken 5? Is there going to be a separate tournament going on for that like it happened this past summer with Trash Day I? If not I guess I’m going to be practicing Third Strike then.

I heard a rumor by the way that there isn’t going to be Tekken 5 at TX Showdown 6, I hope this is not true considering a huge crowd came out for that game alone. I would like to see either Tekken 5 or Tekken 5:DR played (if it’s out by then) at TX Showdown 6. What have you guys actually decided on that?

If theres demand for one, I’ll throw one on Sunday.

As for Showdown, we’re planning on Tekken 5 on PS2 for the event.

How far is it from Nashville to Houston Tex.?

Tekken people seem to have been holding regular weeklies up until now. I don’t see a reason why they wouldn’t show up for a regional if they knew about it. I understand there isn’t a real Tekken following on SRK, but it does seem to be one of the most popular fighting games at the moment.

Can anyone house me for this?

Ranma,Khang,Hem,Kevin, anybody


I’m gonna go. Housing for sat. night anyone? I’m not for sure if I need it right now, because I don’t know who from Austin is gonna go.

Im So There!


maybe ill go to this, i live pretty close to stargate now. no practice though. marn will win reload anyway, f*ck eddie

TN? Dont know an accurate guess but i’ll say 15hrs, or you can just put an address from here in houston and one from tehre and yahoo maps should give you a guess to based on average mph, i tried it and it said about 13hr n 30min

Will the MvC2 be on the arcade or game system?

since its at The Gate, its most likely going to be in arcade because there are 4 cabinets of mvc2 there.

Good. I hope tthere will be more ppl there than just the ones that are talkin on here.

Yeah, there should. All peeps from h-town should be there and represent, i dont know about the austin peeps as how school starts during that week, even here. SHould’ve being january 14-15 but the date is set already and no one is complaing. Hope you do come :bgrin:

i’ll be there for sure. Might take off that day off if i have to. Been lookin for some kind of MvC2 tourney but didnt think ppl had’em anymore
