Excellent tournament guys! :-)
In the next CompSoc Console session, due to popular demand there will be tournaments for Pro Evolution Soccer 5. The decision whether to run a Street Fighter tournament (Hyper Street Fighter or SF3: 3rd Strike), Tekken Tag Tournament or both is still uncertain, although people have been favouring SF3: 3rd Strike.
Shout outs also go to James for dropping by and making a last minute Tekken challenge, and to Rachel for making us laugh so hard with the EyeToy :-)

It's a bit sudden, and not quite confirmed yet, but the first console session will take place alongside the upcoming LAN party in Week 4, in LIB1.
Details are still a bit sketchy on how to run the 3-day event (yep…. 3 days o_O), but so far I can confirm that Pro Evolution Soccer 4 is amongst the list of selected games to be run as a tournament.
There's also a very strong chance that there may be someone coming from the UK Tekken community to support the Tekken 5 tournament.
However, 1 more game is needed, it would have to be a public vote, and preferably needs to be from the list of games stated in the posters.

First gaming session with the Computing Society was interesting. Despite lacking a monitor/TV to hook up a PS2, I ended up using an arcade emulator and a few tournament videos as a temporary measure to put on some games on display, until someone is generous enough to bring a monitor in.
Some chinese dude called Lei dropped by and gave us a brucking-up exhibition on King of Fighters '97, and ended on a positive note with some intense games on Street Fighter II Turbo.
