The fourth episode filmed at the Queensland major Buttonsmash is a double special featuring Adric “Falco” Middleton from South Australia and Sam “The Ham” Baxter from Queensland. Both of them are young and relatively new to the scene, but are widely considered to be two of the best players in Australia.

Falco is known for his amazing Zangief in Street Fighter IV and for winning tournaments without even owning the game on console! He has taken his multi-game ability to another level by winning the KOFXIII tournament at Buttonsmash, breaking Colonov’s long and uninterrupted streak of Australian KOF titles.

Sam Baxter is only 19 years old, and is already an international-class Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 player, claiming fourth place at SEAM2013 in Singapore as well as multiple top 3 placings in Australia. In this episode the duo go on to talk about their love for fighting games, community and competition, their local scenes and how new and hungry players can get on their level. Hope you guys enjoy this episode!

Community: The Australian FGC Episode 07 – Dejan Stantic

http://dustycartridge.com/videos/community-the-australian-fgc-episode-07-dejan-stantic/

The third episode filmed at the Queensland major ButtonSmash features Dejan Stantic, an organiser from the beautiful Gold Coast and the founder of the fighting game group Gold Coast Fighters.

Here in Australia we have a small population spread over such a large land mass, so you see a lot of small regional communities pop up run by passionate dudes like Dejan. Props to every regional community organiser out there for their hard work, I hope to see everybody get together at the yearly majors and that we can work together to make our national scene even bigger.

In this episode Dejan talks about; the Gold Coast scene, how the different communities in Australia influence each other, Buttonsmash 2014, and the correlation between fighting game players and musicianship. Hope you guys like it!

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.

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.
