Although I didn't write this week's "That's the Name of the Game" column over at bookspotcentral.com, it is still a great read. Jenna did a great job writing about the Street Fighter IV National Tournament in San Francisco.
Last Saturday, April 18th, Gamestop held the Street Fighter IV National Tournament at Fort Mason in San Francisco. The gaming affair had a markedly successful turnout, as the warehouse-style building was filled with hordes of Street Fighter enthusiasts. Auxiliary game stations provided attendees with a chance to demonstrate their own Street Fighting skills, while building the anticipation for the final national tournament that would result in the crowning of a new Street Fighter IV champion. Although all sixteen of the regional finalists were granted a spot in the international 2009 EVO Championship Series, only the top contender received his very own Street Fighter IV arcade cabinet.
