Okay guys, let's get Spring in full swing with a huge fighter blowout!!!

I've got the Pine Ridge Country Club letting us use their huge banquet room for this.

All tournament entries will be $10, and there is a $5 venue fee. All payouts are to only the top three placers, and pots are split 70/20/10. The plan is to set up three 8ft. tables in a loose U and run at least 2 tournaments simultaneously (one 2d one 3d) all day long. The goal is to get 12 TV's and PS3's, 4 setups per table, so we can run these tournaments swiftly and efficiently. Anyone willing to bring a TV/PS3 will have their venue fee waived. Let me know if you're going to bring a setup. Only EVO monitors or tubes, please. If you are bringing a TV/setup, I ask that you please be here by no later than Noon unless absolutely necessary to provide us with ample time to set up.

If you don't see a game you want to play, then let me know. Also, time permitting, we can run teams in anything you in the community are interested in. You guys just have to bring copies of the games, because being the owner of a 360, I don"t have any. Signups will start at 11am, and I will begin running tournaments at 1pm. The tournament schedules will be fairly loose, but i hope to run tourneys in around 2 hours apiece. Anyone interested in streaming this event, let me know. I was hoping to actually get a separate stream for both 2d and 3d.

The plan is to run as many games as possible. This will include:

-Soul Calibur V (singles $10, teams $5 per person 3 man teams)
-Street Fighter X Tekken (singles $10)
-Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (singles $10)
-Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (singles $10)
-King of Fighters XIII (singles $10)
-Tekken 6 (singles $10)
-Mortal Kombat (singles $10)

The Country Club will be offering food for you to purchase off a limited menu (likely burgers, dogs, fried foods, deli sandwiches, etc.) and there is a FULL BAR available as well, with a walk up window through the banquet hall. I ask only that you guys drink responsibly, be prepared to show ID when carded, and that you conduct yourselves in a becoming manner. The bar area itself is quite large with multiple TV's so you can relax and eat while you wait for a tournament to begin. If you have any questions, contact me on twitter @NE_SoulCalibur or on facebook.

I'm posting this on 8WR, SRK, and TZ so I'm hoping for a big ass turnout for the entire New England Fighting Game community. Hope to see you all there!!!

I was talking to Eighty88 (who is kind enough to also be doing the stream for us) at this past B.O.N.E., and he tells me that a lot of the 2D games (i.e. AE:2012, UMvC3, etc.) actually run better on the 360, and that a lot of you guys actually play on 360, so if you guys want to bring copies of the 2D games for XBOX and bring your 360's, that's fine with me. I can also offer my own 360 to help out as well now. Also, I updated the main post to include stream URL info.

Yes, and they will be. Casuals will be available on 360, but the 2D crowd will have to decide for themselves if they want to run their tourneys on PS3/360. I hear UMvC3 has massive slowdown issues on PS3, but if the players don't mind, neither do I.

So, any of you Tekken guys coming? Getting hype on SRK and 8WR. What's with the apathy?

I'm about 2 hours away. I might go to watch. my main stick is 360 but I do agree that tekken should stay on the PS3.

Ok guys, just a quick announcement. Thanks to the awesome response of the NEFGC, we are going to have plenty of monitors and setups. If you haven't made a verbal (by posting here I mean) commitment to bring something already, then I can no longer waive any more venue fee's. I've written down everyone who's committed to bringing anything so far for waived entrance fee's, but I've got to make a cut-off because we'll end up having far more than we need. A big thanks to everyone who is bringing something to help out.
