Fellow GRAPSF members. It’s time for us to yet again march side by side into that great fight and take our places as the champions we know we are. Alternately, we could stumble into the darkness weeping in shame, but hey: we’ll do it as a team.
I’m speaking of Midwest Championships, of course. This is the midwest’s very own major tourney, and considering the successes we’ve enjoyed both as a community and as individuals in other tournaments, we owe it to ourselves to go. Two days of fighting game fun, surrounded by fellow enthusiasts, buoyed by energy drinks and shitty buffet food… It’s like heaven, if heaven smelled like a gym locker and didn’t let girls in. How can it go wrong?
The official thread on SRK is located here.
The event will be held on May 8th and 9th, which are Saturday and Sunday respectively. Hotel rooms are seventy dollars a night, which split between two people (or more, if you’re feeling saucy) is downright affordable. In the GRAPSF.com forums, you’ll find a thread in which plotting, wheeling, and dealing for the event may proceed: you have two whole months in which to prepare. Get hype, Pringles, Scoops, Blast, and all that malarkey.
In other news, Super Street Fighter IV has been confirmed at the long-rumored forty dollar U.S. price point on it’s release date of April 27th. Be aware that the game will actually be available for purchase on Wednesday April 28th, as the 27th is simply the date it ships. Unless, of course, you pre-order at the Gamestop on Wilson by Rivertown Mall, which is holding a midnight release event. Be sure to pre-order from SmurfTac0s, one of our finest digital pugilists and manager of said store, to ensure that you get a head start. That few hours may be important, as we’re holding a GRAPSF.com event on April 28th to celebrate. Details as they develop.
