Working as a group can be really fun! I've been looking forward to another opportunity to play this on a big screen and relieve my hands of several years of cramping and give my eyes a break from squinting.<br /><br />However, I watched a stream of this game on its release day and several days after, and it seemed all too familiar to the Wii version, Tri. It sort of makes sense. They are the same series, but you can never be sure with Capcom games whether it's a "Turbo" or a "Gaide...<br><br> It's a silly attempt to get people to sign into the browser but... http://www.consolecombat.net/index.php?state=&location=news&id=266 <img src="http://www.consolecombat.net/avatar.php?id=1"><p>It's still pretty cool!</p> <p><img src="picimage.php?id=63&amp;height=304&amp;aspect=1" alt="" /></p> <p>Check it out at http://www.chrome.com/maze</p> <p>You'll need to install Chrome on your desktop and your android phone.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><!-- pagebreak --></p> Console Combat Closing its doors. http://www.consolecombat.net/index.php?state=&location=news&id=265 <img src="http://www.consolecombat.net/avatar.php?id="><p>Console Combat will be discontinuing all further activities.&nbsp; I will be elaborating over the next week.&nbsp;</p> November Videos http://www.consolecombat.net/index.php?state=&location=news&id=262 <img src="http://www.consolecombat.net/avatar.php?id="><p style="text-align: center;">Here are the video uploads from our November Monthly. &nbsp;You can find the playlist <a href="http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLy7u0ucT2jXG22vFpl9YMc6LAP6PAMA-1">here</a>. &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">There is several hours of footage. &nbsp;Halo videos are being uploaded soon. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><!-- pagebreak --></p> Novembar Monthly Results http://www.consolecombat.net/index.php?state=&location=news&id=261 <img src="http://www.consolecombat.net/avatar.php?id="><p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: large;"><strong>Results from our November Monthly!</strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/1183/tioprosuperstreetfighte.png">Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition</a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/5126/tioproultimatemarvelvsc.png">Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3</a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/9024/tioprotekkentagtourname.png">Tekken Tag Tournament 2</a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://img801.imageshack.us/img801/870/tioprosoulcalibur5.png">Soul Calibur 5</a></p> ...<br><br> This Monthlies Swaggggg http://www.consolecombat.net/index.php?state=&location=news&id=260 <img src="http://www.consolecombat.net/avatar.php?id="><p style="text-align: center;">Rafflies!</p> <p style="text-align: center;">As always, this Month's Raffle will not dissappoint.&nbsp; The Blacktastic will be annoucing our raffle that will include a lot of cool stuff;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">-- Four 10$ gift cards from the Fox and Hound</p> <p style="text-align: center;">-- Three 800 point microsft cards</p> <p style="text-align: center;">-- PS3 cards</p> <p style="text-align: center;">-- Copy of Persona 4 (ps3)</p> <p style="text-align: center;">-- Copy of Dead or Alive 5 (you choose Ps3 or Xbox)</p> <p style="text-align: center;">and..........</p> <p style="text-align: center;"...<br><br> Do you know the Blacktastic?
