You would think, being competitive, I’d have been to tournaments outside of Sydney, bar the one time I went to Canberra…
Well… There’s a first time for everything and spending a few days in Melbourne for a CPT Premier Event (along with some extra-curricular activities) sounded good to me.
It’s a Premier Event weekend in the world of competitive Street Fighter V.
BATTLE ARENA MELBOURNE 9!
One of Australia’s largest fighting game tournaments, held in the Melbourne Convention Centre, is where we will be this coming weekend.
If you’ve been following our social media, you might have noticed the occasional Twitch stream over the past few weeks. (Peep the highlight above!)
I’ve been prepping myself in the lead up to BAM9, with hopes of not going 0-2…
I’m both excited and nervous, being my first time interstate despite competing for close to 8 years now. Am I really competing if I haven’t been interstate? hah.

Early access to Tekken 7 isn’t exactly new (s/o OzHadou’s York Street Battles), but Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray gracing us with their presence? No brainer.
As you might have guessed from the snaps, plenty of Tekken 7 stations, pizza, drinks and people packed within the Australian Bandai Namco HQ.
I’m not a big fan of Tekken’s slow release strategy, but as I had experienced @ Bamco HQ and many times before, I know the game will be incredibly solid come release.
I can’t wait for Tekken 7’s eventual release!
Something a little different.
World Time Attack Challenge 2016!
As you might not know, I’m very much into “car culture”, so attending WTAC 2016
was a must.
A superstar lineup of both national and international guests including the Drift legend himself – Keiichi Tsuchiya!
(Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get him to sign my Initial D IC Card…)
Automobiles aplenty. Some tearing up the asphalt in search of the “perfect lap”, others hard-parked for onlookers to drool over.
You just had to be there…
Good thing I was, because I took some pictures! Heh.
Some random snaps from the Steep event.
Great night of gaming, food and vibes. Looking forward to the success of Steep.
Thanks to Maggi Fusian Noodles for providing both the noodles and the invite (of course).
October is a good time of year to us.
The coming of spring; NRL grand finals, music festivals/concerts, and this year,
the sixth consecutive EB Games Expo.
Held at Sydney Showground, EBX has been the closest thing to a large scale,
video game convention (E3, TGS, etc.) the Australian community have come to see.
For years, EBX has provided attendees access to all things gaming;
showcasing upcoming, recent and past (retro) games, relative peripherals,
eSports competitions and other attractions.
This year was no different. Well, not entirely…
Decided to try make something of the footage I captured over the EBX weekend.
Again, big thanks to Jarrod from Connect PR!
Australia’s longest running national fighting game tournament.
Somewhat of a last minute decision, I made the effort to attend and compete at OHN,
this past weekend.
With a little bit of luck, a few of us managed to score entry to Capcom Australia’s Street Fighter V launch party.
Saving the game faces post-release, this was a night of fun and games – literally.
Free loot, food and drinks mixed with hours of Street Fighter V resulted in a great night with friends.
Check out some photos from the event to hold you until tomorrow’s release!
