Fight! Fight! And Answer Questions Too! (Gaming This Week in AZ)

19 07 2011

This week is filled with a nice clash of intellect as well as brawn with several tournaments and a trivia challenge peppering the valley.

[UPDATE] The DEVASTATION team pushed their Fight Night event back to August 5th instead of having it on July 22.

Spiderman has brawn and brains, just not enough combos.

Starting off the action is Cade Gallery and Old School Arcade with their monthly video game trivia on Thursday hosted by PhoenixGamer’s own Mel, the Office Gamer Girl. The trivia is set to kick off at 7 p.m. with promises mind-numbingly difficult questions about obscure video games and characters. Prizes include Bookman’s gift cards and a special Cade (swag) Bag for the winners.

Keeping up the pace is the DEVASTATION crew with their Friday Fight Night event at the Microsoft Store in Scottsdale (update: moved to August 5th!). The crew will be running three separate tournaments for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Tekken 6; all on Xbox 360. All three competitions are set to kick off at 9 p.m. and conclude at 12 p.m.

There is no entry fee for the competitions and prizes are unknown as of yet but it has been confirmed that the winners will get some sort of souvenir to take home and gloat with.

It is highly encouraged that participants bring their own fight pads or arcade sticks. There will also be several casual setups at the event which will include Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Mortal Kombat, Blazblue: Continuum Shift II, and Soul Calibur IV.

Only a day later, the DEVASTATION crew will be back on Sunday with their 7th round of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 ranbats at LAN Speed Games. As per usual rules, registration for the tournament begins at 12 p.m. and the competition starts at 1 p.m. There is a $1 entry fee and points are awarded to the top placing players to be ranked at the end of the season. Participants are encouraged to bring their own fight pads or arcade sticks.
