Yo, this is DancingFighterG. With so many gaming communities out there Colorado Cutthroat and the NVGA had a hard time figure out which one to showcase at SuperCon this year. For the first time SuperCon is allowing the players to decide the last tournament to be brought to the NVGA championships. Please not though if the votes are high for more than one game then we might add more from this list. Please pick from the four games that have made our final list. Only one of these games will make the gaming championships:

Note: All these games will be available for free play all weekend at SuperCon.

-Soul Calibur 4
-Virtua Fighter 5
-Dance Dance Revolution
-Capcom vs Tatsunoko

Hey I have a few questions for this event.

  1. Entrant expectation for ssf4? (if you have no idea, I guess what was the entrant amount for SC4 last year).
  2. Are there teams for SSF4?
  3. I guess what could you tell me to entice me (or any other player that doesnt care about anything but ssf4) of why should I go to this?

#20

Yo, this is DancingFighterG. New updates from SuperCon 2010. From new panels and workshops, special guest and artist alley!!

SuperCon 2K10 - Panels - Workshops and Exhibits

LuckyD, to answer your questions:

-We are expecting about 32-64 players for SSF4

-There are no teams schedule but it’s not out of the realm of possibility for the casual game room

-In terms of attending SuperCon it has more than just tournaments. It’s a convention dedicated to all things gaming i.e. tournament, workshops/panels, vendors and more. There is a lot of free stuff to win and simply giveaways for all that attend. By attending the event you pretty much get your money back in merchandise. Plus we have some cool vendors for 3D gaming and other cool things to see. If you are looking for information on the event and what is all going to be at it go here:

We are still adding things to the list with a couple of cool surprises. It’s an event that caters to hardcore and casual player all at one!!
