Yo, it's Malice. If you don't know, Soul Calibur is huge in France. Last year, the community was able to pull together and help get a team to Cannes so that they could compete in the World Cup.

This year will be the first time that the event will be streamed live which will be big for Soul Calibur, however we do not have any Americans who are able to go, except for Woahhzz.

So far, the Europeans have already setup a donation drive to help get him there. I'm hoping that we can do the same. I'll be doing what I can locally to help get him there. If there's anyone that wants to help out, you can go so by going to http://www.8wayrun.com/teamusa/ and place your donation.

EDIT: Since Woahhzz is unable to attend, the help will go towards thugish_pond making it to Cannes to compete in the World Cup.

It's time to get hype! The tournament that everyone has been waiting for is upon us. NEC XI here in Philadelphia, PA. Not only will be tournaments for every fighting game that you could possibly think of, but also a full weekend of hot Soul Calibur action lined up with tournaments for Soul Calibur 4 taking place on Saturday, December 4th and tournaments for Soul Caliburs 1, 2, and 3 taking place on Sunday, December 5th.

Also, Namco and FilthieRich who will be in attendance will be adding prizes and giveaways for Soul Calibur and for Tekken, which just adds on to the hype that I already had with the French, ATL, and everyone else who will be in attendance for Soul Calibur.

If you are unable to attend, you can still check the action out online as Jaxel will be streaming all the action on UStream. But NEC is truly an event that you don't want to miss out on. Hope to see you here.

Northeast Championship (NEC XI) which is taking place here in my hometown of Philadelphia, PA on December 4th & 5th, will be here in a little over month and I cannot wait because Soul Calibur will be in the house.

Last year, only Soul Calibur 4 was ran. This year, we will have tournaments for all four versions of Soul Calibur. I wasn't around in the community when the other versions of Soul Calibur were being played, so it's going to be interesting to see how I do in those games. I also want to use this as an opportunity for people to get reacquainted with Soul Calibur and with the Soul Calibur community if they haven't played Calibur in a long time because so many people have played Calibur at one point or another. Or were maybe part of the community at one point or another and maybe moved on to other things. It's never too late to come back. We're still here....

So it's finally here. The tournament everybody and their momma's momma have been waiting for. Full Speed Aerial Kicks this weekend in Massachusetts. One entire weekend of nothing but Soul Calibur featuring the best Calibur players in North America in one large scale round robin tournament.

I know this tournament is going to be ridiculous just from the fact that I will have to play everyone who enters in the main tournament. So if 60 people enter the ironman tournament, I will have to play 59 matches. Usually in tournaments, I'll play 2 matches and that would be the end of it. But the good thing is that I will have a better idea of my overall skill level since what usually happens at tournaments is that my first match is again someone who places either 1st or 2nd at that tournament.

The main thing that I am looking forward to is getting together with the community and having a great time. Every Calibur tournament that I have been to since 2008, I've always had fun. The people...

So it seems like not that many people want to take advantage of the blogging functionality on 8WayRun. I do hope more members take advantage of it. It’s a good opportunity to let people know more about yourself and what’s on your mind. I started using the function on SRK, but now that section is filled with spam and nonsense. Now with 8WayRun upgraded to v4.0.6, it’s offering a fresh start for me where I can get rid of some boredom and people can read what I write.

Today, I wanted to write about what had me hyped this morning. When I looked at the calendar this morning and realized that Full Speed Aerial Kicks was just two weeks away, I was like daaaaammmmmnnnnn, it will be here before you know it. I really see FSAK as an event that could really get people interested in Calibur again if they haven’t played the game in a while.

What has me most excited is the format for the main tournament which is a large scale round robin where everyone plays each other...

Important note from 8WR's official hypeman Malice

There's alot of people out there who are either unaware that Hilde/Algol were banned from tournament play, do not know what the current ruleset is for Soul Calibur, or have no idea where on the site to find the current ruleset.

If you happen to be one of those people, then this friendly reminder is for you. You can find the current ruleset within the Wiki section of 8WayRun.com under Frequently Asked Questions. From there, you can see the standard rules and that Hilde/Algol have been banned from tournaments for Soul Calibur 4.

You all heard the man. Now get hype and get ready for FSAK!
