A TAKII World Tour experience of this magnitude couldn't be held at just any venue, which is why we have selected INE Studios (located at 8 N. Preston St. Philadelphia, PA 19104) to be Gaming Tourney Takeover's inaugural hosts. An independent multimedia complex that is totally unaffiliated with major news & entertainment networks, it was created by & for independent journalists, artists, & those who personify our fusion festival's spirit of taking Asian culture fandom "to the extreme". The facility has the following attractive components: a 25 x 27-foot cyclorama/news room, a 3,000 square-foot concert hall with a performance stage, live television production & Internet streaming capabilities, 3 audio production studios, 2 photography studios, & an in-house café. INE Studios resides in the Historic Bell Telephone Exchange Building (listed in the National Register Of Historic Places) & is 1 of the oldest telephone company buildings in the world, humbling the TAKII World Tour to be in such hallowed halls.
At Gaming Tourney Takeover, a venue entry fee of $10.00 will allow you access to some of the best (& worst) titles from multiple genres & generations within the gaming universe by way of "Gaming Free Play". It will also afford you the opportunity to enjoy the warez of our many "Dealer's Dominion" & "Community Centrale" vendors in attendance. If you really want to prove that you are "the game", you'll wanna save at least a few Super Mario gold coins for our "Gaming Tourney PLUS" (TAKII's pro-style gaming tournaments for big-money prizes)! While we will be running more casual tournaments (also for cash prizes), our main event titles for "Gaming Tourney PLUS" will include the following: Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3, & Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Unless otherwise mentioned (& pending individual game rules), all tourneys will be double-elimination style & cost $10.00 per title to participate. To the winners go the spoils, as 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place will earn 65%, 25%, & 10% of the money pot respectively (ie: if 20 people enter a tourney, the money pot is $200.00, with 1st place winning $130.00, 2nd place winning $50.00, & 3rd place winning $20.00).
All of this will be going down as Gaming Tourney Takeover is streamed LIVE for the shock & awe of our fans worldwide (with Twitch/broadcast sponsorships being made available to support your favorite player(s) & promote your best brand(s))! Knowing all of this, you must now ask yourselves....are the wheels of fate turning? Are you ready for your next battle? Is your prince(ss) in another castle? It's time to find the answers to these (& many other) questions this coming November 22nd, 2014 (12:00pm - 10:00pm EST) from INE Studios at the super-fresh unveiling of the 1st-ever Gaming Tourney Takeover!
