What a weekend it was at Youmacon 2013 located in one of the most historical cities in America, Motor City (Detroit). Top fighting game players from across the country competed for cash and prizes in a variety of today’s most popular fighting games, including Super Street Fighter IV AE, Ulitmate Marvel Vs. Capcom, Injustice & Mortal Kombat. New titles added to the 2013 tournament lineup included FPS titles Call of Duty Black Ops II & Halo 4! An important note to add before we forget, this year Youmacon linked with the non profit company Extra Life who donates money directly to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. They were hoping to raise $1500 throughout the weekend but fell short of their goal. There is still time to donate, click here! The tournaments were held on the third floor in the Marriott Renaissance Center. Aside from the 40+ setups for tournament gaming there were around 150+ other gaming setups, from retro Nintendo’s all the way up to the newest gen consoles… And let’s not forget about the massive amounts of League Of Legends setups! To make it even better, there were 50+ arcades scattered about, all with free play ability. 4 main stages, each had a dedicated streaming staff throughout the weekend. A variety of vendor booths were around including Gaming Generations, Brokentier, SRK Tech and a few more; each offered unique products and/or services. Aside from the major hype going down in tournament room, players enjoyed checking out the hundreds of other things Youmacon had to offer, such as panels, the dealer room and rave party on Fri & Sat night. We said this last year and we’ll say it again, if you did not attend Youmacon this year, you most certainly need to attend next year!
