Do you have what it takes to be UK’s best Street Fighter IV player?
That’s right, our friends over at Neo Empire are hosting a Street Fighter IV tournament this Sunday (7th June). Best of all, the winner will earn a place at Capcom Europe’s UK finals (without having to gain a mountain of GP via the game’s Champioship Mode). Sweet. It takes place at Westminster University, Harrow (North West London) and will be run on the Xbox 360 so don’t forget to bring a stick/pad. The original 128 places have been filled but they’ve extended the number of slots by an extra 32. Only a handful of places remain so sign up soon.

Sadly, we won’t be there to kick arse since we’ll be at Collectormania in Milton Keynes but we wish everyone the best of luck. While I’m at it I may as well plug Neo Empire’s Games Night: Sunday held in London nearly every Sunday. It’s basically a session of fighting games where players get to meet and square up face to face. Due to popularity, most machines are currently set up with Street Fighter IV but they also cater for Marvel, Virtua Fighter, King of Fighters, etc. The players are always friendly and helpful. It’s a great way to pick up tips and improve your game, I recommend it to anyone who loves fighting games. http://www.neoempire.com/
