It’s that time of year again!
Battle Arena Melbourne 10.
The perfect opportunity to pit the Oceanic’s best against top players of the world (Tokido, Xian, Verloren, Knee, JDCR, Qudans, etc.), in hopes of crowning a local champion, but Street Fighter V and Tekken 7 isn’t quite what I’ve come to Melbourne for.
Dragonball FighterZ is the new hotness, picking up steam all over, and Australia is no exception.
Australia lacks a DBFZ champion, so what better place to crown one than BAM10?
Australia’s largest fighting game tournament is back and we couldn’t be more hype.
If you haven’t already heard, EB Expo & PAX AUS have come together for the most “ambitious crossover event in history”.
Ok, maybe not that dramatic, but definitely one for Australian video game / gaming culture history!
Dragonball FighterZ is kind of a big deal.
What most people don’t realize is, this isn’t just another 3D fighter like Budokai, Xenoverse and the other Dragonball fighters of the past.
When you have Arc System Works, who have a deep portfolio of fighters including Guilty Gear and Blazblue, it’s pretty much a no brainer. Instant buy.
So, when I got word of a launch tournament at the snazzy, Sydney-based Microsoft Store, with an Xbox One up for grabs? Again, no brainer.
Before the inception of The FRESH, we were known as SFG.
Starting in 2015, we shared a blog amongst ourselves, focusing solely on video game culture.
During our time as SFG, we have been fortunate enough to travel great distances, documenting our video game adventures.
