Not even a week in and I’ve already had my first tournament of the year. Yesterday, I fought in three separate tournaments at Mayamada’s winter GamePad event, Gaming for Grenfell. This event took place in London, and I entered the Street Fighter V, BlazBlue: Centralfiction, and Smash Bros. for Wii U tournaments. I’ve had an interesting time since my last tournament entry for Revolution 2017, including changing mains in both Street Fighter V (to Ed, from Balrog) and BlazBlue: Centralfiction (dropping Celica to a pocket in favour of Jubei), but I entered tournaments anyway despite not feeling 100% ready for them.
How about my next report of Eurogamer Expo 2017? There were a lot of games, a lot of gamers and a lot of queues, but the event was a huge success for me this year with a lot to see and love. Although there was a tremendous amount of empty space on the showfloor, this really did help on this day due to the sharp increase in attendees. But, more importantly, how were the games? A quick note, I’ll only be covering non-Nintendo games in this article, if you wanted to see my thoughts on Nintendo’s showing, it was posted on Nintendo Scene and can now be found on here as well.
