Game Over and Capcom Night at Radio Star Bar in NYC

Last night, Game Over “Entergament” hosted its Capcom Night event at the Radio Star Bar in New York City. The event was geared towards playing Capcom fighting games all night, and to celebrate the recently released Super Street Fighter IV. Founder of Game Over, Spio-Garbrah, also known as “Papaa” expressed that last night was somewhat of a response to the absence of a true launch event of the game on the East Coast, and to show there are just as many gamers here as there are on the West Coast.

Papaa noted that Capcom has had a good history of doing events on the East Coast, with its New York Fight Club late last year and the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars launch earlier this year. However, since there are many other companies who have little to no ties with the East Coast, Game Over has taken matters into their own hands. In the past 5 months, they have done almost a dozen events for various other games, including Modern Warfare 2 and Halo 3. It’s a cry for more support of the gamers on the East Coast. Its people like Game Over, DualShockers, and others based on the East Coast that have the industry taking notice. (PAX East, anyone?)

Capcom Night was held from 6pm-2am, Thursday evening. Players brought their fighting sticks, their favorite Capcom fighters, and their A-game. Free play of people respectfully taking turns consumed most of the night, but a few tournaments were held as well. Attendees were also encouraged to come dressed as characters for a chance to receive some of the merchandise sent in by Capcom themselves, who showed their support of the event.
