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


#3

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?


#4

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.


#5

How far is it from Nashville to Houston Tex.?


#6

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.


#7

Can anyone house me for this?

Ranma,Khang,Hem,Kevin, anybody
