lol - glad we can help?  lol

One GOOD thing, no matter what - that has come from OKgamers - is that since I'll "do whatever it takes to get the word out about the site" - I sign up for a stupid amount of responsiblities - aka, helping to run gaming at 2 conventions, and alot more -_-;;

...leaving the good thing?  To be that we help out businesses and events to actually HAVE more happening.  It's a bi-product, but it at least makes you happy right?  :)  lol, it seems like this Minicon - we'll really be able to advertise alot too - we've got our OKgamers banner to hang, and I'll have to get more flyers out, etc.  So - hopefully this year we'll REALLY make a impact, and the site'll become a even more well known resource.

As it states under prizes, any $3 charged goes towards a pot for each game that is used to create prizes.  The "fairgrounds" cost is also factored into entry.

I'm... not sure who you are!  :)  Give me a vowel or somethin, I don't remember your handle :)


Question from the okgamers.com Contact form:
Quote
Comments: I am just curious about the GH2 tournament coming up on the 4th at Minicon.  I understand that the only difficulties will be medium and hard, is this a showmanship tournament then? Do we need to try to get a high score, or look good rockin' out? Also, will we play standing or sitting down, just out of curiosity. Will X-Box 360 players get/need a chance to practice with PS2 controllers, or are they the same? And what are the criteria for song selection?  Sorry this is so long winded, but thank you for your response.

This is a duel based tournament - so yea, points not rocking ;)  There will be no judges like the tournaments Joe Momma's hosts, etc. [Speaking of which is TOMORROW [email protected]#]

We should have plenty of seats, but I suspect you'll stand.

And - as I've noted above, we'll do our best to have GH2 ps2 version set up for free play through out the day, like everything else.  [Soul Calibur 2 might get shelved, or SC3 for a bit, GGXX after the tourny, etc to free up consoles...  We'll do our best to keep everything really popular going!]

**update** there is a SLIGHT chance we'll also have GH2 on the 360 setup, so we'll see!

You haven't been to the tulsa fair?  Although, it has declined over the years so I couldn't blame you.
