Hey guys, the main post for this event has been updated with full rulings and details!
Hey guys, a couple of weeks ago Jon from Gamespot Asia asked us to drop by his office, fed us a lot of titbits and asked us to do a little video for Soul Calibur V!
He says he’s been busy with work but I think he’s just training hard in SC5 to get back at me for the thrashing I gave him a week back *coughcough* I kid. I kid.
Anyways! Here’s the video!
We’re going to be headed to the Singapore Air Show 2012 on the 18th and 19th of February!
There will be a tournament at the Singapore Air Show for Soul Calibur V at the Namco Bandai Booth.
Come on down, compete for your chance to win a Hori SC5 Joystick or take part in a Lucky Draw for a Brand New Xbox360!
There will be no joysticks available so BYOC! (Console being used is Xbox360)
We will also have top player Shen Chan available to give some hot tips on how to play the game!
So come on down, see what the finest in the world of Aviation has to offer, and then showcase your SOUL and earn some great prizes!
Shuttle Bus details and How to get there instructions can be found at this link.
See you there!
There’s a new place to hangout and play console games in Singapore! It’s located at 2nd floor in Park Lane Shopping Centre! (You can’t miss it, there’s only 1 shop with so many consoles and it’s right next to the escalator!)
This shop specializes in Fighting Games, so the place really caters to fans of games like Street Fighter, Marvel vs Capcom, and SOUL CALIBUR 5.
In conjunction with Battlefield Fridays, TCGC is having a Soul Calibur 5 tournament instore this coming Friday from 7:30pm to 11:30pm! So do come down and hang out with us! There will be plenty of casual stations running the game so do come down even if competition isn’t your cup of tea!
We’re also running the event alongside a UMvC3 tournament, so check that out if you’re a fan!
So, our dearest Shen Yuan asked me to head down to town to meet him last sunday.. and when I got there…
He was fliming THIS..
So naturally I had to yell out and call him a Fraud whenever he lost online heehee. But this was a really fun watch so check it out!

Hey guys, it has certainly been awhile!
We haven’t really been doing much except the Friday Nights at Bugis but now, Soul Calibur V is on the horizon!
SoulSingapore is brushing dust off our shoulders and getting ready to charge straight into yet another new stage of history and we’re looking to change the way we communicate with the local fans of the game.
“Like” us on Facebook! Pretty please? We know most people don’t really like blog hopping (and when the game hits I’ll be a bit busy to be doing full blog posts heeheehee) so we set up a page for you to “Like” and be instantly updated on all our latest antics!
8wayrun has been going strong since the launch of Soul Calibur VI and the international community there is hyped up for the new game too! Hit our matchmaking thread in the link above to join in on our discussions, or surf around the site for information and strategies for the game.
If you’re a fan of Soul Calibur, there’s a high chance you’re a fan of other fighting games too!
Round1.SG is a fighting game website dedicated to the local fighting game fans regardless of the game. Do check them out if you are looking for a challenge anywhere in the genre.
As some of you may or may not yet know, Soul Singapore will have 5 representatives at the upcoming World Game Cup 2010 in CANNES, FRANCE! (www.worldgamecup.com)
We will be departing on that trip on the 2nd of March, but before that we’d like to have a console session on the 20th or 27th of February.
Location is most likely at The Hangout (www.thehangout.com.sg) and time will be from 2pm-6pm.. (might be extended)
I’ll be making calls to try and get some good rates, but to be safe you might want to take it that you’ll be spending $11.50 there.
Please leave a comment here (I’ll prefer if everyone replies here as it doesn’t need registration and will be easier to track..) to vote for whether you prefer the 20th or the 27th, or if you’re available for both.
