    Season's Beatings: Velocity -- Oct. 14th - Oct. 16th

    Just thought I'd make my obligatory, annual post about the best damn fighting game tournament on Earth. Well, at least in my eyes, and I wear glasses, so that's like four! This weekend in Columbus, Ohio the sixth installment of the Season's Beatings fighting game tournament will be held at MoMo's. I will be holding a MadCatz stick in one hand and a DSLR in the other. If you can weed through the 700 hundred-plus, attendees, say "Hi!" I promise I'll greet in return.

    *Disclaimer: I owe a great deal of credit to Godlike Entertainment and the Season's Beatings events, because it made me realize where I wanted to go with my writing. It made me value the fighting game community. So that's why this is especially important to me.

    [After the break: Weekend Schedule, Live Stream link, and Photos]

    If you're reading this, then you should know to get a solid nights sleep tonight. Get there early if you're hoping to play casual [on all days], because this event looks like it may reach max capacity. Which also means they may have to turn people away.

    I think everyone who is interested should come. And if the price is too steep? Watch the stream! The very spectacle of Season's Beatings is something you kinda won't get anywhere else. I don't mean this in an advertising sense. I mean this in a manner that is even unique in the fighting game scene.

    This DIY tournament has remained grassroots and has grown to an international level. Kudos to Ghaleon and Fugee. I remember with they'd throw tourney's on OSU's campus in the math building. Now, well, I'll just let the stacked schedule tell the tale.

    I'll continue my documentary of the fighting game community @ SB:Velocity. Click the image to view my progess so far.

    Well guys and gals. I'll see you both on the stream and at the event.




    *Personal Note: This tournament couldn't come at a better time. With everyone working their butts off. Political and social unrest. It'll be nice for me to get in a room of people from all walks of life with a common interest. So I get to turn my phone off. No arguing [unless it's about spamming attacks. lol]. No twitter or facebook beefs over [insert first world problem here]. Let's just press some buttons! But, you know, in the good way!
