Horror Nights is really expensive! Do we go for an awesome backup plan?

  1. (Go to HHN) Screw the money! I wanna go to Universal and get jumped by literal clowns!

  2. (Don't) $70-$100 could cover some kickass backup plans, and my flight's landing too late anyway.

    I mean the final version of Encore. Aren't the title screens going to be changed on all versions?

    And actually, the PS4 version will be superior in every way (the only thing it won't have is the Home button lock, but since the Home button doesn't DO anything on PS4 anyway the functionality is identical) so I wouldn't be against the PS4 version of the game being featured. The plan as of now is to use PS3 as is the current standard.

    Not exactly. 2nd Encore refers to the PS4 and Vita version that includes exclusive--for now, maybe--features and modes. PS3 and 360 won't have these new features and modes, but PC might.

    Hooah! The Facebook page for the event has been posted: https://www.facebook.com/events/574199709401099/

    Registration starts in August. I'd post the event image in the OP of this thread, but a certain game seems to be missing from it for some reason.

    Info on the website is out of date. Up to date info is in the FB event page. The venue changed from the Allure Resort to the Wydnham Hotel, which is apparently where the regular CEO usually takes place.
    Jebailey changed the venue because there were a lot of concerns about the quality of the Allure Resort dipping since he last used it from what I understand.

    EDIT: Actually, it seems like that web page has half old info and half new info. Well, I did hear it went down and he's been working on getting it back up. Probably typos he made in his rush to get the ball rolling on this event.

    New event image. Seems to have the full list of tournies at the bottom in case anyone is interested. Also, it also confirms a cosplay contest and a vendors+artists area.

    Why doesn't Melty get game art?
    Why did they use Carnival Phantasm?
    Why is it a picture of Phantas-moon, who isn't even in the game?
    Why is my time off not approved yet? I don't wanna be a maybe forever.

    I've seen a bunch of people complaining about that actually but isn't that kind of nitpicking considering they are the same character with a different outfit? I mean its a little weird but its hardly worth making a fuss over.

    I agree it's kinda silly, but I think in a way it's because a game has been overlooked/treated lazily for an event that is about taking a segment of games that are often overlooked/treated lazily and not doing that.

    That said, the event will be remembered more for the event, people just like complaining on the internet.

    But seriously, I'm very pleased that LZ & Autumn went this route. Based on what the community wanted (to not really focus on EVO), they spread out their tourney money. That's really cool.

    Not so much laziness as unfamiliarity. The character images/order were all sourced from fans of the games either offering character names or emailing over suitable high-resolution art. In this case a fan pulled a fast one on us and we weren't familiar enough to know till after the flyer was up.

    The CEO crew all admit we aren't anime-scene experts, and we're gonna stumble because of it, but we're taking any advice offered in an effort to make sure-footed steps towards getting this right. I'm sadly confident this won't be the last thing nitpick-able, but we're aiming for something memorable (for the right reasons) by the end of the event.

    Looking forward to seeing anyone who makes it out!

    I don't have any qualms with your use of the Val image in the flyer or anything, and don't really care what you do for other games, but if you guys EVER need high-res Skullgirls art to use, please don't hesitate to let me/us know.
