Game Galaxy will be holding the official Tougeki Super Battle Opera 2010 qualifier for the Super Street Fighter II Turbo tournament! There will be 3 spots awarded for ONE team of THREE players. We do not know if the tournament is going to be a team tournament of 3 vs 3 or if we are just going to do THREE separate singles tournaments.
We WILL have separate tournaments for SF4 and Tekken 6 as well as Blazblue or Guilty Gear to make this be a pretty significant tournament/turnout.
This qualifier will be on the official arcade board, but we will have a Super Gun hooked up for for people to use PS2 sticks/pads if needed. The official tournament in Japan will be on Sanwa sticks, so be prepared if you can not use them.
Tournament Dates and entry fees are still TBA, but keep an eye on the site for updates.

Due to recent developments, and the arrival of yet another big family fun business named “Incredible Dave’s” , Rivergate Mall has asked us to remove all of our coin-op machines from the location. We have been asked to take out our arcade and pinball machines even though Incredible Dave’s has a TOTAL of three arcade machines at their only other location in Louisville, KY, and the rest of the machines are redemption based. It is sad when a so-called “big box” entertainment center whose main competition in the area is Chuck E. Cheese would stomp their feet and demand we take out our 70+ dedicated arcade and pinball machines. This is the SECOND of only three arcades in the Middle Tennessee area that have opened in the past two years and have now closed. Retro’s Arcade in Clarksville, TN closed their doors in March of this year.
If Incredible Dave’s really “cares” about OUR customers, they will have dedicated arcade and pinball machines that aren’t going to run the family dry. (Incredible Dave’s runs on a card system, so mallgoers that want to play Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga for 25 cents on their lunch break will be forced to purchase a card and probably won’t even have their favorite games to play.)
With this said, we are sad to leave the Goodlettsville area. Thanks to everyone that supported us during our three months at Rivergate Mall. Please visit our Hickory Hollow Mall location now at 118 games (all working as of 3/8/2010!)
