bam8_logo

Battle Arena Melbourne 8 is almost here! In less than 2 weeks Melbourne’s premier fighting game major will take place at CQ Functions. Spanning 3 days this Capcom Pro Tour ranking event and Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Battle Royal qualifier will be one of the biggest fighting game events in Australia this year.

If you’re still on the fence about BAM8, check out the recently released trailer from organisers CouchWarriors.

Online registrations will be closing this Saturday May 7th, after which attendees will incur a $10 venue entry surcharge and likely wait in long queues when registering on the day. Official tournaments for Smash Bros. can only be entered via online registration, so for some pre-registration will be critical.

Check out the details on the official BAM8 website and follow the directions provided.

Stuff Yo’ Couch! Episode 1

syc_cw_banner

Hi guys, welcome to the first episode of Stuff Yo’ Couch!

This is a ranbat recap where we could go over all things CouchWarriors; go over results, give you guys a peek into the action and sights to be seen at the ranbat, and maybe get a few interviews with important faces and figures in the Melbourne community.

I’m still ironing out what I want to do with the show, so I apologise for any roughness or inconsistencies – please let me know what you guys think or what to see in the future!

In this episode we interview Philip John Pretty aka Redact, who’s recently joined team Exile5 in light of his stellar work at BAM7 which turned out to be massive with 500 plus registrants- huge kudos to the Smash community for really blowing up the event with their international guests and hype. And we also have Darren Taing aka Dreadtech- the hardest worker in the Smash community right now, and a deserved winner of the Community Award at BAM7.

The August Couchwarriors ranbat had a welcome guest in the form of an SFV preview build courtesy of Capcom Australia, so thanks very much to them- so we have a brief section of some quick opinions from the players such as David Ladu, Darcy Higgins, Jake Lynch and Kris Dabrowski.

Hope you guys enjoy the episode!

OHN13 – Retrospectives

ohn13_banner

Another OzHadou Nationals is behind us. Many games were played, champions were crowned and the Australian fighting game community brought the hype. Let’s look back at OHN13 from a few different angles.

Albert “Pepito” Hong captured all the magic from the OHN debut of Mortal Kombat X in his video “OHN13 – MKX Moments”.

As soon as the crew from the I Don’t Even Podcast recovered from 3 days of OHN-madness they jumped into their debut/pilot episode to discuss how things went down.

Finally for everyone interested in match videos, the OHN13 streaming team – Goodpart, Barra and kyokugen – has been diligently uploading direct feed match footage to the OzHadou Youtube channel. This process is on-going so be sure to check back later if the games you’re looking for aren’t already available.
