November releases have already pushed most gamers into quiet seclusion as they decimate their enemies in Modern Warfare 3 or free-roam to their hearts’ content in Skyrim, but there’s plenty of tournaments in store to get out of the house, take in some sunshine, and get some real competition!
[UPDATE: LAN Speed Games have pushed back their Lock-In Event from Nov. 18 to Nov. 25. Same rules and information still apply]
East Valley Gaming is starting off all the action with their 3rd Friday Videogame Super Happy Funtime Extravaganza of Doom at Gotham City Comics & Coffee in Mesa. If you think the event name is a mouthful, then the tournament action will blow you away as the group plans to host gaming on Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, Gears of War 3, an Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament and a Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike competition.
The entire event is free to play and free to enter. All of the gaming will go live at 2 p.m., with sign ups for the UMvC3 tournament starting at 4 p.m. (single elimination). For more details, check out their official Facebook event page.
