Having acclimated to the sub-zero temperatures, the joystick eskimos embarked on a grueling full day of play, running the entire gamut of fighting games. MCZ Tokido continued his impressive win streak from the City of God Brazil to the colder climate of Canada by drawing first blood in Dead or Alive 5. Bizarrely, the number of entrants was less than the number of sequels in the franchise, as only 4 players registered. Canada certainly wants to stop “The Murder Face” Tokido from pillaging another tourney and hoarding all the medals, but the great tactician has grand plans to gather momentum leading up to the December 8 Capcom 25th Anniversary Finals and drive home in a shiny new car. (Since the car does not have the ability to cross the ocean, Tokido wants to give the car to a relative residing in the USA). In order to realize his dreams, he will need to rely on the knowledge of teammate in arms MCZ Mago, who Tokido calls, the “greatest sparring partner on Earth.”
When we weren’t watching world-class play, we were developing eye cavities from the eye candy at Net Candi, brazenly defying the freezing weather in skirts and heels on their way to the Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre. They have issued a challenge to all gamers to show their Kinect moves on a real dance floor at Saturday night’s after-party. The girls admitted to being hurt by the lack of attention inside the tournament, when all gamer eyes were glued to the massive projector, but we promise to be more fawning once the consoles turn off.
Make no mistake, Canada Cup 2012 is a grueling marathon that tests the mettle of every gaming athlete. While your immune system is firing on all four cylinders to combat the chills, and your visual senses are overwhelmed by the beautiful sirens from Net Candi, you still need to contend with a racing pack consisting of the world’s best players. While we certainly do not condone the use of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) that have plagued other sports, we here at Mad Catz can offer you the competitive advantage in our joysticks. Avail yourself to our Canada Cup coupon code running all weekend long and you might find yourself in the yellow jersey one day.
