GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT: MICK GORDON – KILLER INSTINCT SOUND DESIGNER/COMPOSER

Killer-Instinct-28-e1390247421698

We are thrilled to announce our second guest for Battle Arena Melbourne 2014 is something of a rock god for video gamers – Mick Gordon!  Composer for the upcoming many games including Need For Speed, Shootmania Storm, Marvel Super Hero Squad, the upcoming Wolfenstein and of course KILLER INSTINCT

One of the most celebrated features of KI has been the dynamic soundtrack designed by Mick, building on the reputation for the soundtrack since the famous “Killer Cuts” of the first game.

Mick will be appearing at #BAM6 on Saturday 10th May all day for meet and greet, media interviews, and a special 1 hour QandA/Ask Me Anything segment at the end of Killer Instinct pools (approx. 4pm), to show us some behind the scenes insight and sounds.  We’ll see if we can get some game commentary and perhaps even a challenge or two!

Ever wanted to know what goes into the sound design of a game, especially a fighting game?  Now’s your chance. After packing out the panel room at PAX Australia last year, this is a rare opportunity.

Visit Mick Gordon’s official website http://www.mick-gordon.com/

Killer Instinct Soundcloud suite: https://soundcloud.com/mickgordon/killer-instinct-2013-music-1

BIO mg award

Known for his unbridled enthusiasm and tiresome work ethic, Mick has been enjoying the wonderful world of video game sound for most of his adult life with his musical noises attracting companies such as Electronic Arts, THQ, Marvel Studios, Warner Bros, Paramount Pictures, Nickelodeon and Sony Entertainment.

An incredibly diverse composer, Mick treats music and sound design the same – “music is just sound design with rules”. It is this direction that gives him the ability to create distinctive textures and memorable themes that not only compliment and enhance the numerous projects that he’s worked on but are also recognized and praised by the people who enjoy them.

That’s right, for new players only – we have a special tournament for people to get started in tournament play, just for fun, against fellow new players of a similar level.  This Street Fighter 4 tournament is FREE to enter!

At CouchWarriors one of our big aims in running events is to encourage the fighting game scene to grow, and we want to be as welcoming to new players as possible.

Battle Arena Melbourne is our big annual event, and we want new players, friends of regulars, or spectators, to have the opportunity to get involved in a special tournament just for NEW CHALLENGERS.  In fact, this will be the theme of #BAM6!

We hope players have fun, feel encouraged to play and practice, and come back to compete in events both big and small!

The  Rules: Entry is FREE – but you must be a NEW player.  That means, you have either never entered a major tournament OR, never won a game in a major tournament before.  Entry at discretion of the organisers. An entry cap may be observed.

The Prize: A Razer Atrox Xbox 360 with Special customised art plate (Special art to be revealed)

The task for existing players: Be welcoming! Encourage your friends, or that online sparring partner who has never come down before, to join up and have a good time.
