Texas Showdown 5 & MLG's Houston Regional(sponsored by Directron)
March 11-13, 2004
Sheraton North Houston at George Bush Intercontinental
15700 John F. Kennedy Boulevard
Houston, Texas 77032
Phone (281) 442-5100

It’s that time again. It’s time for the best in the nation to show up once again for the biggest Street Fighter tournament in Texas. This year is no slouch. On the agenda will be the usual suspects, Marvel vs Capcom 2, Capcom vs SNK 2, Street Fighter III – 3rd Strike, and Guilty Gear XX #reload. New attraction games, Capcom Fighting Evolution/Jam and Tekken 5 are also on the schedule. Street Fighter Alpha 3, Dark Stalkers 3, and Street Fighter 2 Super Turbo are also being planned. And that’s not the end of it, there’s the possibility of SNK games to be added to the lineup and don’t forget the team tournaments.

This year we have also teamed up with the big Major League Gaming league. They will be holding tournaments for Halo 2, and Super Smash Brothers Melee. They will be giving away about $5000 total for Halo 2 and $1,250 total for Smash Bros!

This year looks to be the largest tournament we’ve ever held, and we have some special guests coming for the first time to Texas!

BAS-D44, Kindevu and Otaku will be traveling from Japan to attend Texas Showdown this year.

For the largest tournament, we’re also using a unique format for the major games(MvC2,CvS2,3rd Strike,GGXX#r). Instead of the traditional double elimination bracket, we’ve decided to split everyone up into round robin pools. This is much like how the Evolution tournaments have been running theirs, but with slight differences. Everybody entered in tournaments MvC2, CvS2, 3rd Strike, and GGXX #r, will be separated into 4, or 8(depending on number of entrants) round robin pools. Top 2 records from each pool advances to an 8 or 16 man, double elimination final. Records for all qualifiers reset.

MvC2 will be on arcade because we will only be using PS2’s for the console tournaments.

Not exactly sure what you're gettin at with that statement. We're expecting about 1000 people at this event, so there aren't too many arcades able to house it.

Its actually fairly common to hold gaming events at hotels, they usually offer cheaper rates on the rooms once you book an event. Maybe you should explain what in the world you're trying to say there.

I thought the entire Houston area was already sucked into the Otherworld due to the magnitude of Pollyana's sins.
