Seasons Beatings Redemption is a week away!


Next weekend, MoMo's2 in Columbus will see some of the biggest fighting game action this side of EVO. I'm going to be there lending equipment and help, and you can be sure that I'll be posting updates and photos right here on my D-Toid blog.

Some of the bigger things going down will be the five-on-five USA vs. The World match in Super Street Fighter IV. Justin Wong will be leading the US Team, which will include Arturo Sanchez, Mike Ross, EG Marn, and Eduardo "vVv Scrub" "PR Balrog;" who will face the combined might of the International Team, lead by none other then Daigo Umehara, who will command fellow Japanese players Momochi and Choco Blanka along with the Taiwanese Gamerbee and Starnab from France.

Seasons Beatings has also been rightfully known as "the Mecca of Marvel," and with Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on the horizon, SBR could be the last great showing of Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Past Seasons Beatings gave us a new meaning for Pringles, and last year saw the infamous $13,000 money match. Who knows what kind of crazy shit the Marvel faithful will pull off as a fitting sendoff.

Along with that, there'll be tournaments in Super Street Fighter II Turbo, X-men vs. Street Fighter, Street Fighter III Third Strike, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3... all on actual arcade hardware. Along with action on the PS2 with Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus and PS3 action with BlazBlue CS and SSFIV. Not only that, there'll be plenty of sides in titles like Melty Blood, Tekken 6, TvC, and others. I'm hoping to get a TMNT: Tournament Fighters side going myself. Hell, I'm bringing in four Capcom Fighter Power Sticks for the weekend.

Since not everyone can make it out (and pre-reg ends Monday), Team Spooky will be producing the live stream of all the major action during the weekend. Last year's broadcast had Justin's dramatic upset over Daigo and the tournament winning comeback. So take it from me when I say it's worth keeping an eye on.

Anyway, keep updated with the official thread, the main site, and the Facebook page.

See you next weekend.
