Park or get off at Collingwood Station…

Walk either down the alley, or down the main street

We hope to see you all there on Saturday and we can’t wait to see who’s in top form leading up to BAM!

Community: The Australian FGC Episode 03 Michael “Cactus” Ashmore

cact

The third episode of Community features Michael “Cactus” Ashmore. A long time mainstay in the Melbourne FGC, the Golden Child is mild-mannered in demeanour but packs a nasty far standing fierce. He’s a strangely modest individual, scratching his beard when he beats your ass with his Dhalsim and giggling good-humouredly when you hit him with something stupid. We learn more about how he got into the scene, why he loves travelling for interstate FGC events and arcade tournaments, and how he’d knock you out with a right old left!

Hope you guys like it!

Community: The Australian FGC E02 Dan “DisasterFX” Richards

Hi guys, the second episode is up featuring Dan “DisasterFX” Richards. Formerly a Smash player, he’s become a champion of the lesser popular games in the scene such as Injustice and SFxTekken. He’s become a great guy to have on the CouchWarriors board, and proof that everyone can become a great and invaluable contributor to your local community if you step up to the challenge.

Hope you guys like this episode!
