Now that people have had a week to recover from the craziness of last weekend at Texas Showdown 2014, we asked those who went what their favorite moments were from the event. Some of these on the list aren't really moments, but rather people or things to do at the event. Hopefully, it'll show those who missed out why they need to attend next year at Texas Showdown 2015!
Kombat Houston Digit wins Injustice
FNATIC Perfect Legend came down to Houston as a last minute entry, and immediately was the top threat to taking the crown out of Texas. One by one he took down most of Kombat Houston, but the last one remaining held on and took him down in the finals, KH Digit and his Shazam!
GameGuys DJ KOR wins Tekken Tag 2
San Antonio's Grims last down the challenge the week before Texas Showdown, saying that Houston was no longer on top of the Tekken scene in Texas. But on this day, GameGuys DJ KOR answered back, taking home yet another Texas Showdown Tekken trophy.
JWong & ChrisG repeat, PR Rog wins KI
Once again, Gamester Gear's NYChrisG proved he's the one to beat at UMvC3. EG Justin Wong wins AE, 3S, A3, ST, MvC2, and CvS2. And EG PR Balrog comes back from losers bracket to sweep the grand finals, 3-0 3-0 against IC MyGod88.
Rollercoaster ride for the crowd
Texas was able to defend our turf in Tekken Tag 2, and Injustice, but with Insomnia's Jan Del Rio losing to Justin Wong after holding a 2-0 lead in the set, and Hamad missing a critical kara throw in the last round of the last game to EG PR Balrog, out of towners TS Lord Knight, PR Rog, EG Justin Wong and GG NYChrisG would go on to win the rest of the main events at this year's Texas Showdown.
Ultra Street Fighter 4 at Texas Showdown
Peter "Combofiend" Rosas was in attendance, and brought Ultra SF4 for attendees and players alike to try and test out for Capcom. For those that didn't goto Texas Showdown, you'll just have to wait until June to play it.
The Sign Guy
For people watching the stream, and even those in the audience paying attention, the Sign Guy pretty much stole the show during intermissions and crowd shots. Asides from being creative with his messages, the dude has to be quick with the erasing and rewriting to make it for the camera shots!
For spectators and players not playing or watching the tournament, there were vendors selling a wide variety of products. Pictured here is Otaku Cafe based out of San Antonio, there were also local based The Pop Culture Company, Insomnia VGC, GameGuys, Vapor-Bots, and Game Over Video Games.
The number one thing that seemed to keep being bought and showing up all over the venue were these annoyingly cute Alcapa plushies. Sold by Insomnia VGC, they came in every color of the rainbow and armed with a smile you can't resist!
