Every once in a while we get tired of playing the kiddie games with the lifebars and fancy pants KO animations and turn our eyes to a more serious competitive game. That day where we hung up our overly large joysticks and took up the analog of men was on Aug. 15th! Another all-out perfomance by our combatants.

Will reigning champion John "Sakazaki" Golden maintain his title against our newfound field of competitors? Find out on the next page! Part 1 of Honest Party

Ohio's own Blind Swordsman

8/9/2012 6:25 pm - FreeSuper comments
News Via testyourmight.com! "With great honor, we have a very special interview to show to everyone. If any of you watched the Console Combat fighting game stream back on July 29th, chances are you know where this is going. We bared witness to our first ever "Blind" player to be playing Mortal Kombat. When Tim Static informed that this was about to happen on stream I jumped to my laptop and tuned in immediately and did my best to spread the word." Click this link to check out some of his matches and for the full interview with James and his brother Devontae. We really hope to see them every month. Especially when NetherRealm's Injustice arrives for consoles soon! It is amazing to have such a unique entrant taking part in an event most people would deem impossible for such a man!

Super Lengthy Dandy Guides!

6/21/2012 11:00 am - FreeSuper1 comments
Longtime fighting game player and Ohio native, DandyJ has released a new tutorial in this moment's hottest new fighting game, Virtua Fighter 5: FS! This is the same man that has created an excellent series of KoF tutorial videos and author of (probably my most favorite of things) the homo-genius series of magnificent fight clips.

This newest iteration clocks in at at a whopping 2 HOURS and 41 MINUTES of nothing but explanations of the basics of Virtua Fighter. This is essential viewing for those of you new to the series and especially if you are new to the world of three-dee fightmans! On the video's youtube page there is even a convenient mediafire link if you wish to view this offline since youtube is pretty flakey in making timestamps past about an hour! This puts me right at home with the old VF4 on ps2 which also had a very comprehensive tutorial to help get our feet wet. This new iteration of VF5 is pretty bare-bones so this is good in learning more of how the game wor...

We aren't alone in being game enthusiasts!

6/18/2012 12:20 pm - FreeSuper comments
I have now lived in Cleveland, Ohio for several years and every year since about 2008, I constantly kept forgetting to attend an event hosted by one of the few independent gaming retailers in the county with an actual physical store for all of us to visit called the Video Game Connection. But not this year! This hosted event is called the Cleveland Classic Console and Arcade Gaming Show or CCAG for short and is being held this Saturday June 23. Only one day prior to our very own tournament of the Fox and Hound on June 24. Turn a sweaty and boring weekend into a weekend festival of gaming! Old and new! Fighting and friends or even fighting your friends!

The address of this event is at 22001 Brookpark Rd 44126. Click here for a google map!

Here's the list of events going on for us more competative minded folk!

Tournament Games:

XBOX 360 - Soul Calibur V
Arcade - Robotron - Top Score
Super Nintendo - ...

Monday Night Money Party - 50 Turns! For Men Only!

6/12/2012 1:08 pm - FreeSuper1 comments
For anyone not familiar with Console Combat and our monthly tournaments, we also do a smaller less serious stream. It is conveniently located on our tab bar. This is the weekly stream where our local crew comes together and trains up in the grand buffet of fighting games that are available out there in videogameland. Last night on June 11, however, we took things on a slightly different direction.

In the RED corner we have our Challenger. Mad jive-talker, bullseye rock tosser, and newfound fitness guru, Butch "One-Punch" Hankus.

In the BLUE corner we have our defending Champion. A silent but powerful striker, he will take out your legs and crush your head at a moment's notice. John "Mr. Sakazaki" Golden!

What ensued was FOUR HOURS of the most intense and riveting Mario Party 3 bouts that anyone has witnessed in over a decade of this game's existence. Many coins were shaken down from the combatants and ma...
