VGXPO tournament results

First off this was the most horrible experience I have ever been a part of. I was promised a lot of stuff from the VGXPO people to help run this whole thing smoothly and then I got left hanging when it came to game time. I had to push back the tournament because we didn't have a ps3 with SC4 stuff or a copy of the game for that matter. We had the vgxpo staff screwing everything up from the brackets to registration to changing my rules. Once we finally got a copy tyo play I was forced to do a 44 man single elim tourney with the final 4 going into double elim to get a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place rankings.

Now as of this writing I am about to pop in Fallout 3. I am looking forward to playing this. It will give me a nice break from Megaman 9, Soul Calibur 4 and Warhammer Online.


The Annual Review

By Hesham "Red dragon" Bahhur

In the recent times, we have begin to see more released titles, new features to next generation consoles, and gamer created ideas that are either considered or used by current developers. In my busy schedule, I managed to gather enough spare time to take a close look at some new and old titles and review them.


The idea of making a full return to journalism.

As you may have noticed, the last two years GVN has spent mostly running game tournaments and not doing so much in the jouralism field. Well, with the addition of a new member, Red Dragon, I am looking to slowly return to some of GVN's roots. It's a hard trek to follow back to the begining of where everything began. But it should be worth it. So stay tuned for some more lost gem features, maybe a game review or two and some interviews as we try to make GVN more than just a videogame tournamnt scene.

I will Be there to run 4 tournaments split betwen Saturday Nov22nd and Sunday Nov 23rd. So far the only details I have recieed from my associates at VR is a gaurenteed $500 prize for first place. Also the pricing for getting into the expo is a 3 day pass for $25(by registering at their website) or $30 at the door.

The aftermath of GVN, in the eyes of Red dragon

By Hesham “Red dragon” Bahhur

GVN is probably the best event I’ve been to in a long time. The only event I can say that is close in terms of excitement as this would be my cousins bachelor party in the streets of iseral at 2 in the morning where we were shooting 45’s in the air. That’s another story though for another time.

The first day we left my house and made it to the house of hubbs around 6 to 6:30 pm eastern time zone. We parked in the parking lot across the street and I called hubbs and told him, “Can you step out to your front door.” All the houses on that block looked the same and the parking spots for them were behind the houses but I didn’t pay much attention at the time being.

After we were greeted by hubbs (who looks like my twin), we proceeded to his living room where me and him were showing off pictures on each of our computers. We started to do casuals at his house for a bit and we proceeded to do offline training for tomorrow’s event. We played into the early morning and then we got some sleep.

The day of the event was filled with hype, casuals, random moments, the meeting of new people, bragging, and showing of DOA 3.1 (courtesy of sorwah). If there is anything I learned from GVN, it is that people can tell the difference between which tv’s cause lag. The thing is though, I couldn’t tell the difference between the LCD’s (which were used for doa), and the tube tv’s (which were used for virtual fighter, tekken, and brawl). The hype of the event was there as soon as the people started showing up. I got to meet a lot of cool people including:

Fightclubhubbs and wife of hubbs
Dante dmc
Nikki (sweetkisses)

The first game to start off was DOA 3.1, the japenese version of DOA 3. The entry fee for this was a dollar. Since it was a cheap entry fee, I decided to jump into it and see how I would do. The tournament matches were pretty close and at the end I came in 7th place. I’m thinking top 8 isn’t too bad considering I never really played DOA 3 and I was trying to copy stuff from DOA ULTIMATE and DOA 4.

The next game that started was the Dead Or Alive 4 tag team tournament. I entered with my student, supasupakoopa. He has been training with me and H20 Tildaleaf as well as doing some self training in sparring. Either way, we kinda knew each other’s moves and we used that to dominate a good chunk of the brackets. We ended up placing in the top 5 for this one.

I didn’t really pay much attention to what games kicked off after doa4 tag, but I think the virtual fighter, tekken, brawl, and soul caliber tournament kicked off after these ones did. I watched a couple of matches and I live streamed a bit of it but it ended pretty well.

The last one to get off the ground was DOA 4 singles. I don’t understand why this one in particular took a while to get started. After it started, I got paired right off the bat against hatifry and I sent him to losers. I think he was kinda pissed off at that. After he got sent to losers and I moved onto the second round brackets, I got paired off against nikki, (sweetkisses), my friends student. I would say out of the entire tournament, the 2 closest matches were me and nikki and my student, supasupakoopa, against phoenix. Talk about epic when a match is decided by one hit. It was like watching an epic movie scene. I couldn’t describe it very well but it was close, intense, and nuts.

About 8 hours later the top 3 of each tournament were decided and most of us decided to go to a place called tom jones. It’s a diner with some good food. Im glad it wasn’t expensive because gas burned my wallet the next day. 50 dollars to fill supa’s gas tank and it was my turn to pay up for gas. Just like the first day when I left for gvn, my parents were calling my phone up and down but it wasn’t as bad. I have come to realize why that is. The reason is because that my parents were enjoying a LCD tv that they have just bought. 6 hours later and we arrived back in ohio and at my place. The only thing I was asked by my parents when they opened the door for me was “how was your trip?” Im trying to take a shot at going to Seasons beatings III, NEC9, and GVN east coast winter brawl. Looks like I’m back to where I started, but I had fun with this event and met a lot of cool people.

The prelog of gvn, in the eyes of Red dragon

By Hesham “Red dragon” Bahhur

When I got first word of GVN, it was in a thread on the Dead or Alive Central forums in the tournament announcement thread. I read the specs of it and I saw that it was going to happen in Media, PA. and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try and meet some new people and hopefully have a good time. As soon as I set my mind into going, the first couple of things I did was start training more often as well as begin the talks with my parents about going.

Now I hate it when people keep telling me, “dude your 19, you can do whatever you want, your parents shouldn’t have a say in it.” Well here is the thing, my parents, unlike other parents, were born and raised in the Middle East. They are going to be stricter than the average parents because they were taught that family is the center of everything. They were taught how to raise kids to be disciplined and respectful. Then I get the “you should move out and get your own place” excuse. I got my own reasons for not moving out, but I won’t share them here.

Moving on, I jumped on the ball and got things going starting with my #1 important issues, getting there and having a place to say. Courtesy of Hubbsdoctor and some words put in from Rikuto, I got housing for myself and my friend supasnupakoopa. Supasnupakoopa also offered me transportation to the house of hubbs as long as I paid my end of gas. This is the #1 thing that is stopping some people from going to most offline competitions. People I know online have some really good skill and potential, but they cannot demonstrate it in the offline scene because of transportation, housing issues, lack of fund, etc. but you guys get the point.

The newest thing that has been offered to this tournament is the live webcast of the entire event. That’s right, using my laptop with the built in webcam and microphone as well as my Xbox live vision cam; I will be live streaming the entire event. Me and hubbs are expecting a big online audience for this. I’ve been testing this out and now I got the specs of it down and we are ready to go.

The days are winding down and the day of the event is now around the corner. I am getting the final preparations of the trip together and people are getting their stuff packed, plane tickets bought, and getting over to the venue. I hope to meet new people, learn new things about doa4 and hopefully not get my ass kicked in the first round. I say good luck to those who will make it, it will be a pleasure meeting you, and bring it on.

Ladies and Gents. Your attention please.

I would like to welcome the newest member of the GVN family. Everbody give Red Dragon a warm welcome.


GVV Summer Bash 2 to be broadcast live!

A tournament first. We will be webcast the whole event live thanks to the help of RedDragon. We will broadcast select games including the finals for each one.

This is the account we will be braodcasting at:


The event will start broadcasting at around 1 or 2pm and the whole tournament will start at about 3pm. All this is in EST.

If you want to see the quality of the video watch Red Dragon and I partake in a FT10 DOA endurance match tonight at 11pm-ish EST.


Top 10 movie based games.

Prepared to be shocked and awed people, I have compiled a top ten list of the best Movie Based Video Game adaptations ever. Some will shock you, others you may not have heard of but you will soon know that for every 8 crappy movie based games there is a diamond in the rough. This list also includes spin-offs and pseudo sequels.

10. Gremlins 2: The New Batch – NES

Damn Skippy. This little gem is not only a great adaptation but it’s even better than the movie. Gremlins 2 punt you in control of the super adorable Gizmo as he makes he way around a NYC skyscraper populated with the demonic little green buggers. The game consisted of some great platforming action in an isometric view similar to the The Legend of Zelda. It’s definitely a forgotten classic that needs reviving on the Wii.

GVN Summer Bash 2 and future GVN events.

Wow sorry for the long silence. I promise that will change.

Really BIG freakin news. GVN summer bash 2 will be aug 23rd at virtual rush.

Paul of Virtual Rush and I had a huge discussion and here's what came out of it. VR has partnered with VGxpo and are looking to host a ton of console and pc based tourneys with them. He is also about to finish this deal with someone who will help with GVN SB2 sponsorship. Paul of VR said they are working hard on obtaining one or more sponsors for this tournament.

So now you have a date and place and a very strong reason for going. This means smaller venue/pot fees and bigger numbers for all games.

BTW the games that will be at GVN summer Bash 2 are:

DOA 4 - xbox
VF5 - xbox
Tekken 5DR -ps3
SF3 3S - ps2
Soul Calibur 4 - xbox
Guilty Gear XXAC - ps2
SSBB - wii

And to make things run smoother we will have the proper equipment(ie tube tvs for tekken crowd), extra help for running each game tourney, and half priced venue fees for those who ring extra equipment.

So keep a heads up for the final major annoucement for GVN Summer Bash 2.
