This weekend the fourth installment of the annual Season's Beatings, one of the largest fighting game tournaments in the U.S. takes place in my lovely city, Columbus, OH. Hosted by Fugee La & Ghaleon, Season's Beatings is sure to make some worldwide noise in the fighting game community. If you have not seen the 50-page thread dedicated to the event on Shoryuken.com, you should know you have until Tuesday to register and pay. Go to the Season's Beating IV website to register, pay and while you're there grab a shirt.
Headlining the event will be longtime rivals Daigo Umehara and Justin Wong who you may remember from a certain epic match years ago. They have had only a few encounters in tournaments since that match in other tournaments. This will be the first time they will be put on center stage in a best of 10 in a little game called Street Fighter IV.
I'll be covering the latter half of the event on Saturday and Sunday, so be ready to be photographed [also you can NOT be photographed, just tell me...I'm not a jerk...well at least about this]. Here is a look at last year's photos. Keep an eye on the this site and Shoryuken for the photos and tournament results. If you are one of the fortunate many who are coming to Columbus for the event, have fun and I'll see you there!
