first_imgBy Joe ChapmanDEFENDING champions Amelia’s Ward Jets and Ravens will contest the final of the 6th Brusche’s Basketball Classic championship after securing impressive wins Friday night at the Mackenzie Sports Club hard court.Ravens prevailed in an exciting 61-58 victory over Colts, while the Jets upset Victory Valley Royals 72-60 to set up a showdown on Saturday November 4.After coming from 12 – 15 down in the first period, Ravens rebounded to end the first half leading by three points (33 – 30). However, the balance tilted for the Colts, who were without notable players: Stanton Rose and Shelroy Thomas.After trailing 49 – 46 heading into the final period, Ravens recovered well and outscored their opponents 15-9 to clinch the 61-58 win.Travis Burnett was again in good form with 15 points with Jermain Slater getting a good game, netting 14 and their captain, Ryan Stephney adding 13 in the win.Dave Causway and Shane Webster played well to score 14 points apiece as Dellon Larose finished the night with 12 for the Colts.Game two was also gripping as the Victory Valley Royals came into this game with the edge, having been unbeaten with wins over Jets in the recent MSC Open tournament. The Royals edged past Jets when the first quarter ended, but when the first half ended the Jets were up by two (32-30).Sensing that they were in a battle, the Royals could not resist the efforts of their bigger inside opposing players who went to work and nudged ahead to lead when the third quarter ended 51-45.With the Jets having several options to go with, they would eventually romp home winners 72-60 and will make their defence against Ravens next Saturday.Nathan Saul had a superb game for the Jets, hitting in 17 game high points as Donnel Benjamin netted 14 and Akeem Kanhai and Adrian Webster each netted 10 points.In their losing cause, the Royals best scorers were captain Chris Williams and Trevor Profitt each with 13 points, while Harold Adams got 12 and Yannick Tappin seven.last_img read more

Capcom announces Street Fighter mobile game

August 29, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgThe Street Fighter series will expand its reach onto mobile thanks to a collaboration between Beeline, a Capcom subsidiary, and Skillz, a mobile esports platform. A new game for mobile platforms was announced, along with an in-client competitive platform for live battles.They emphasised the competitive experience in a press release, describing “a wholly unique and competitive Street Fighter experience on mobile.” The venture will also have “live broadcast competitions integrated natively within the game, powered by the Skillz platform.” While it seems Capcom, through Beeline, will be heading the game itself, Skillz lends its claimed background in esports hosting by providing a platform for live battles. While they are vague about their portfolio, Skillz describes its role in these games as not only managing the tournament itself, but assisting with broadcasting and spectating the games. The company claims to manage the esports component of over 3,000 game studios and “more than 30 percent of all esports [sic] awards in 2016” and over 4 million minutes of game footage broadcasted to fans. “With this partnership, Street Fighter will define the future of competitive mobile gameplay,” said Andrew Paradise, CEO and Founder of Skillz in the release. This is the convergence of Capcom’s recent ventures into competitive fighting games and mobile games respectively. While Beeline hasn’t produced any smash hits, it’s developed a line of franchised games for names such as Shrek, Ghostbusters and Snoopy the Dog. Capcom may be looking more closely at Capcom Mobile’s Android remaster of Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, which released late May. (The game was also released for iOS in 2014.) Meanwhile, Street Fighter as a franchise has exploded in popularity due to its competitive aspect and the release of Street Fighter V in February 2016. The franchise was already an arcade staple, and despite the fifth iteration not having an arcade release, it became an overnight esports hit. The game’s success was further proven by Turner Media’s television series ELeague, an invite series of many of the top players in the game (though it wasn’t part of the Pro Tour). This will be Capcom’s newest foray in mixing the genre and platform, though its previous game, Street Fighter X Tekken for iOS, didn’t have a similar esports focus. The new project will be met in app stores by the indie fighter hit Skullgirls, which saw its full release this month, plus other franchised apps such as Marvel’s Contest of Champions and DC’s Injustice. Esports Insider says: This could be a high-risk/high-reward move by Capcom. They have the sheer popularity and charm of their games and brands to last them a few lifetimes. Of course, that’s in a familiar way as, say, Angry Birds. It’s anyone’s guess as to whether the game’s competitive platform will be well-received and viable when push comes to shove. Here’s hoping, if only for the next generation of gamers, who genuinely love their mobile apps.last_img read more
