Sadly since the demise of ESC Games in Glasgow there’s been a little bit of a hole in the Scottish Street Fighter scene, the old regulars have done well in keeping the activity going with house tournaments and so on. This should help bring it up again; the HMV Gamerbase centres in Glasgow and Edinburgh will be hosting ranking seasons for Super Street Fighter IV as well as friendlies for other fighters. Gamerbase Glasgow is located at the top of Buchannan Street, across from Buchannan Galleries centre. Gamerbase Edinburgh is in the HMV at the Haymarket end of Princes Street.
From Thursday the 25th of November for 12 weeks every Thursday night will be ‘Fight Night’ at Gamerbase.
If you love your arcade fighting games then get down to either Gamerbase Glasgow or Gamerbase Edinburgh between 5pm and 8pm on a Thursday to get your fix of Super Street Fighter 4, Tekken 6, Blazblue and as many others as we can cram in!
There is no entry fee, you just need to have a gamerbase account with gaming time on it. To make things even better you can even take advantage of our ‘Evening Extravaganza’ offer which allows you to play from 5pm to 8pm for just £5!
In addition to all the casual gameplay you can handle, every week there will also be a 16 player Super Street Fighter 4 knockout tournament at each centre!
Each weekly tournament will act as a ‘Ranking Battle’.
Each week the scores will be added to the ‘Fight Night’ leaderboards.
Then, at the end of the 12 weeks, the top 8 players from Glasgow and the top 8 players from Edinburgh will be invited to Gamerbase Edinburgh to compete in a thrilling Double-elimination, winner takes all, tournament on Sunday the 13th of February!
