CCH- March 25 Round 5

Hi guys, my name is Muttons and I help run CCH (Chris’ Club House), a Melbourne institution since 2010. CCH is a community event run by the community for the community, it’s a fortnightly local meetup where we gather with our sticks and setups and play casuals all day and hang out with each other. Click here Disclaimer: I am NOT Chris- that is the Founder who you can find out more about in the “history of CCH” below. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NEXT CCH: March 25 at 3PM at the Collingwood Library. Hi guys - we're back for another session of fighting game casuals at the Collingwood Library this Saturday. This week Kris Staltare will be opening and closing in my absence- so big thanks to Kris and hope to see you guys there! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2017 Schedule (All at Collingwood Library, 3PM till late) January 14, 28 February 11 (Note this will be run as Carnage's Special Stay Sharp tournament), 25 March 11, 25 April 08, 22 May 13, 27 June 10, 24 July 08, 22 August 12, 26 September 09, 23 October 14, 28 November 11, 25 December 9, 23 Where: 11 Stanton St, Abbotsford. (Collingwood Library, right next to the Collingwood train station) Fee: $4 venue fee- Anybody that brings either a monitor/console/laptop gets in for free. BYO: Screens, Xbox’s, PS3s, Sticks are all appreciated, even if they go unused. The more the merrier. It would be awesome if you guys could leave a comment in this thread if you’re bringing a setup. I will have my setups there from 3pm onwards. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Behind the scenes action courtesy of Burnout: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1V4gnExyayg ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A Brief History of CCH: CCH was founded by Collingwood resident and the inventor of the crossup tatsu, Chris Dang, whom I will now respectfully refer to as the Founder. Originally named Collingwood Club House, CCH has been known as Chris’ Club House for years now as a homage to its original founder who saw the need in the community for a console casuals meetup with the divide between Vanilla SFIV console and arcade editions. CCH ran on Fridays from 6PM till late into the wee mornings, and The Founder would always be there with his setups and sticks. Many Melbourne traditions were born from this meetup, such as CPU moneymatches! Since then CCH has gone from strength to strength, and the relaxed atmosphere of the meetup introduced many new faces to the Melbourne FGC that have since become staunch regulars and top players such as Kevin “Burnout” Kim, Shadowfox and many more. I took over the reins in February 2011 from The Founder (who retired from the FGC in 2011 to be a family man) and together with Ali from Shadowloo, and reliable dudes like Andrew “Vitriol”, Daniel “Spoony” Finegan, Burnout and Peter “Syntax” Evans we ran CCH for a few years before I decided to shut it down in August 2012 with the opening of Shadowlogic over in Footscray. Now CCH is back in 2014 with the recent shutdown of Shadowlogic for their impending move, and I personally hope we can attract more new players to our scene, level up together and have fun. Hope to see you guys there!

When other companies announce their consoles they go deep into the numbers, focusing on sales figures, subscribers and teraflops. Nintendo was never one to conform with its fellow console makers, a tradition which continued when we found out the hybrid home/handheld nature of the Switch  and Friday’s full reveal was no different. Let’s get straight into the important details. The Switch will launch worldwide on 3rd March 2017 and will cost $US299 (as at writing, EB Games has the console listed for $AU469). The Switch will feature a capacitive touchscreen (more akin to a smartphone than t...
