Shooter X Fighter Event!

The weekend of September 2nd, in Northbrook, Illinois (near O’Hare Intl. Airport) there will be the Fighters x Shooter gaming event. It is sponsored by Adam “Keits” Heart and Focus Fire. This even is not like the other fighting game tournaments that we all have heard of in the past. This particular event will focus on 2 genres of games. As the name of the event goes, there will be Fighters and Shooters. The main games being played will be Call of Duty:Black Ops, Halo Reach, Marvel vs Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat 9, Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition, Street Gither 3rd Strike Online Edition, and Madden NFL 2012. It will have all the traditional tournament feel. It has brackets, new players, old players, side tournaments, friends, family, you name it.

The Mystery game tournament is just as it sounds. Each game being played each round is a mystery. It could range from any system to any game. I saw the first Mystery tournament at The Ultimate Fighting Games Tournament 7 back in May and it was very entertaining. They we’re playing games I’ve never even heard of. It sure is a treat for those in attendance and those watching on the stream.

I’ll be modding the stream, both of the fighters and shooters streams. I’m one double duty this weekend! Catch everything on http://www.twitch.tv/focusfirefighters
