Results from our November Monthly! Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Soul Calibur 5 Mortal Kombat 9 Halo 4 (2v2)   Another great turnout with ~80 gamers in attendance.  We introduced Halo 4 and I was extremely happy with the turnout.  The players were highly competitive and highlighted Halo's potential in our tournament scene.  Matt and Joe held it down and took our first Halo 4 team tournament.  SSF4 AE had a familiar outcome with CORN's alucarD taking ANOTHER Console Combat monthly.  alucarD continues his dominance in this game.  CoCo's Matt Shultz comes in second with CoCo's Brennan Karaba taking third.  OMG itz Andre adds another UMVC3 championship to his impressive resume.

I'd love to hear the explanation for MK's unexpected return to the arcades in, of all places, Japan. Did old MK arcade games ever even make it over to Japan? Currently this beta is running in an arcade called Yawata Ace. Pictures here: Numero Uno & Numero Dos UPDATE!

"No DLC characters. The unlockable ones aren't there either"

Ohio's own Blind Swordsman

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!
