Dear all KOF fans,
This weekend we had one of the greatest KOF tourneys we’ve ever seen in a Major multigame tournament and I am very pleased with the results. We had a great turnout and we received great reviews from the fighting game community in general. I want to thank Alex Valle for allowing us to be part of ReveLAtions and Tournament Legacy as well as LevelUp for a magnificent stream. We were delayed for a few hours but on tournament this big nothing ever goes according to schedule (lol). I know for a fact that even the Tournament Legacy staff was not expecting such a big turnout.
I also want to thank our staff here at Dream Cancel. Kane317: thank you for all your work managing the brackets and awesome job on the commentary. DarkGeese: we really appreciate your support and coming all the way from Texas to be part of this, which is some serious dedication. Giby: thank you for being our special guest staff and helping with the brackets. Nilcam: thank you very much for all your support and for providing prizes for all top placers. I am very happy with the staff we have here at Dream Cancel and I am proud of being part of it. Congratulations to our top placers. You guys put on a great show and those of you guys who didn’t place, thank you for participating and supporting the community.
Revelations is over but the hype and excitement doesn’t end there, EVOLUTION 2011 in around the corner and I’m looking forward to making it our biggest event yet!!!
The time is upon us! ReveLAtions is this weekend. I’m planning on hosting a Skype call to discuss all things KOF and Dream Cancel, which will start at 7pm Central. If you’re around, contact me via Skype (nilcam).
Here are the details about the ReveLAtions stream: Date: June 11 Time: 10:00 PM PST Where:justin.tv/leveluplive
THE ANSWER is testing the streaming equipment to be used for ReveLAtions next week and, as a special treat for the community, will be streaming some KOF XIII casuals as well as ANSWERing questions. The stream is starting at noon PST. Tune in to his channel at justin.tv/theanswerkof. I’ll embed the stream here on the homepage when it’s up but if you have questions, going directly to Justin TV will be the best was to ask them.
ReveLAtions 2011 is next weekend. King of Fighters XIII will be there as a side tournament thanks to the efforts of THE ANSWER. Dream Cancel is one of the sponsors of the KOF XIII tournament. We are providing extra prizes to several of the top placers in the tournament. If you live in the area, you have no excuse to miss this.
It’s very important for us as a community to support this event as much as we can. If you’re able, attend and play. If you cannot attend, tune in to the stream. If we show our passion for this game, the fighting game community at large will notice. The more hype we provide, the more we’ll be noticed.
For those attending: Fees: In order to participate, you’ll only have to pay a $5 venue fee and a $10 tournament fee. If you already signed up for another of the main events you will only have to pay the $10 for the tournament fee.
For those of us not in the vicinity, here are the details on the stream: Date: June 11 Time: 4:00 PM PST Where:justin.tv/leveluplive
In the fourth episode, Giby and Nocturnal analyze some Japanese Garou matches with the insight we’ve come to expect from this amazing podcast. In the second half of the show, they talk with timmytheturtle. If you like what they’re doing, and anyone with an interest in Garou should, follow them on Twitter: @castofthewolves.
In this episode, Desmond Delaghetto and I talk with Dark Geese, DeadlyRave-Neo, jinxhand and steamwolf about playing online vs traveling. We also get into the current state of the SNK community and the fighting game community as a whole. Be warned that this episode is definitely NSFW. Enjoy!
After discussing it with the community via the forum, the Dream Cancel t-shirt shop is live! We’re launching with 5 designs and 2 different methods of printing.
The vintage shirts use digital printing which creates a washed out, vintage look. The colors will fade over time and the manufacturer says the shirts will last about 2 years if washed in cold water and air dried. The modern shirts use flex printing which is a bit more expensive but creates vibrant, durable colors. The printing on these shirts should last much longer than the vintage shirts. The downside to flex printing is that a maximum of 3 colors can be used and the shirts are more expensive.
All shirts are hand made upon order and are available in S – XXXL. Unfortunately, the XXXLs are about $7 more due to the cost of the base shirt. International shipping is available.
Orochinagi.com has released the first episode of their podcast, the ON Show. In this episode, Gunsmith talks with Kane317 regarding King of Fighters XIII, the state of KOF and the arcade scene. The show is available at Orochinagi.com.
