This event is going to be FUCKING HYPE! And if you’re not down with that, I’ve got TWO WORDS FOR YA!
Let’s start 2007 off RIGHT with some good news!
The place: web2zone (Internet Cafe & Video Game Center)
54 Cooper Sq (Cafe Area)
New York , NY 10003
The date: February 10th, 2007
The time: 4pm-12 midnight
The cost: $10
The state of fighting games in the tri-state area is becoming grim. First, the GDT ranbats in New Jersey came to a screeching halt when the owner decided to close his lan center. Then, we heard confirmed facts that Chinatown Fair will not last another 5-6 months. TGA is great, but it’s WAAAY out in Massachusetts. What are gamers to do when they have a fixing for a fight, but have nowhere to go?
Web2Zone has decided to start holding “Fighting Game Saturdays” events starting on February 10th. For the cost of $10, you can stay all day from 4pm-12midnight. Web2Zone currently has 7-8 TVs and is in the middle of NYC, where you can pretty much do anything you can think of within a few blocks walking distance. Currently web2zone plans to have good comp in the following games:
Street Fighter 3: Third Strike*
Guilty Gear XX Slash
Melty Blood: AC
King of Fighters (all of them if possible)
Marvel vs Capcom 2
Capcom vs SNK 2*
Super Street Fighter II Turbo (fresh from CCC2 collection)
Web2zone currently has the ones with *'s next to them, but plans on holding other games as well. Bring whatever you want to play and it’s all good. Web2Zone currently has 3 PS2s and I will be bringing another 3 (the famed ECCX PS2s that got me fired from my job) so we will be all set.
Also, I will hook up MvC2 to the widescreen LCD with a VGA adapter so we can play in high-definition. NYC gamers, I KNOW you love this game (and Matrix/Yipes are still rubbing their wounds from the last time I beat them down at CTF a few weeks ago) so expect to get some comp and some scrapings when you come by.
As things develop, I will update this thread with grudge matches, money match challenges, and people locked to attend. So stay tuned for updates. What I can say right now is, I’m taking OPEN CHALLENGES in ST, CvS2, MvC2 and 3s, so if you want some, COME GET SOME!
ADDED BONUS: If enough players show, and there is interest, we will throw some free mini-tournaments. In the future, web2zone WILL begin to start throwing official Ranbats with tournament rankings and such. Look for one of these by the end of February.
