Doing another event at the “Casual Gamer” and we are planning many more events in the future. Coming up is a 3rd Strike & Street Fighter 4 AE tournament to celebrate the release of 3rd Strike Online on PSN & XBOX Live. We also know everyone likes getting together to play against other great people and I would personally like Corpus Christi to become a place of real competition. My old tournaments at the Gamers Den were big enough to attract players like Marn, Latif, and many other great players. We’re going to grow the community in Corpus and build the scene because there is a lot of potential here and this city can serve as a great location for people from many different cities to meet without having to make a super long trip.
Thanks to all the people who want to participate in the fighting game community and if you want to host your own event here, please get in touch with me via PM or just come by the store.

[INDENT=1]+++Game Specific Rules+++[/INDENT]
3S & SSF4AE CHARACTER SELECTION
Players MUST register a Character and Ultra/Super prior to the match. It is the Judges responsibility to ensure that the players stick to their choices. The Loser of a match may elect to return to the Character Select Screen. The Winner MAY then reselect their Ultra/Super only before the losing player makes their choice.
Failure to abide by these rules can and will give the match to the other player, and a continued failure to follow the rules will result in disqualification.
