As January comes to a close, February gives way to a fun start for fighting games. If you’re not pent up in your house practicing every facet of Soul Calibur V, then there’s a couple events for your radar this weekend.
Team Hazmat are continuing their “Hazbats” on Saturday the 4th at their hangout in Laveen. This will be third in the series and will once again feature top players from around the state in an out-and-out brawl for the top place in both Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (2012 ver.) competitions.
As per usual practice, there will be a $5 entry fee for each tournament and a $5 venue fee. All entry fees will go to the pot awarded to the top three at the conclusion of the season. The action will also be streamed on their Twitch.tv channel. For more information, visit their official Facebook event page.
If you want to get an early jump on things, the LAN Speed Games Lock-in is planned for February 10th. For $17.50 ($20 the day of), you get to be sealed into the building at 10 p.m. to game, chat, and win prizes until 8 a.m. the next day. They are currently taking sign-ups at their store and seating is limited so getting an early registration may be the best option. For more information, please visit their event page on their website.
