Weekend Gaming Craziness in AZ

8 02 2012

As we posted earlier, demos of non-fighting games both surprised and disappointed us, but that doesn’t stop our desire for some healthy fighting game competition!

Closing out this week will be events from NeoMaxico, LAN Speed Games, and Euphoria Gaming for fighting games galore.

Starting the weekend early will be the NeoMaxico team with their King of Fighters XIII stream on Thursday night. The group will be showing live competition action (for bragging rights of course) on their Twitch.tv channel and may even throw up some online PSN (or is it SEN now?) matches. For more info, check out their official Facebook page.

With 10 hours on Minecraft, what WOULDN'T you build?

On Friday LAN Speed Games will be holding another one of their epic lock-ins from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. As per usual practice, entrants are locked into the building for 10 straight hours of gaming. Since these guys have their own Minecraft server, League of Legends, Star Wars: The Old Republic and tons more to play, there’s bound to be enough to keep players occupied.

To reserve your seat for the lock-in it costs $17.50 ahead of time and $20 the day of. For more information, check out their official event page.

Following up will be Euphoria Gaming with their free Tekken 6 and Soul Calibur V tournament on Saturday at the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe. Casuals are set to start at 1 p.m. with Soul Calibur V starting at 3 p.m. with Tekken 6 following thereafter.

There are no entry fees and prizes will include some giftcards of varying amounts. There will also be a raffle for a copy of Soul Calibur V, in which tickets will cost $5. Players are encouraged to bring their own fight pads or arcade sticks. For more info, check out the Euphoria official event page.
