There’s only one day left until Final Round begins and only one day until our invitational for Darkstalkers Resurrection goes down. As eight of the best players have been assembled, I thought it only fair that you gain some insight into their backgrounds. Be sure to tune in tomorrow at 6pm (ET) for the action. We’ll also be giving out codes so you too can become as good as the players you’ll see.

Zach “Ailerus” Marquette

Character: Felicia

Bio: Cincinnati native who’s been playing Darkstalkers 3 since he got his first taste of the game back in 2010 at Northeast Championships. He’s a part of Arcade Legacy (largest group of Darkstalkers 3 players in the US) and is hype to show up the power of Felicia.

 

 

Tad “Alphakami” Griggs

Character: Q-Bee

Bio: Native Tennessee who’s been playing since 2012. He’s been training hard and loves to help out the community. He’s looking to show what the new generation of Darkstalkers 3 players bring to the table.

 

 

Ari “EG Floe” Weintraub

Character: Victor/Sasquatch

Bio: Highly regarded as the overall best player in Darkstalkers 3 over the last few years, Floe’s style with Victor is absolutely shocking! As an overall fighting game expert over the last 10 years, Floe’s expertise is a surprise to no one and is regarded as the person to beat. 

 

Ray “Kajoq” Riticher

Character: Hsien-Ko

Bio: True Darkstalkers 3 enthusiast who has traveled across the United States with his own custom Supergun (modded arcade board that you can plug controllers into) in an effort to foster the Darkstalkers 3 community since 2007. He’s excited to show what the Chinese ghosts true talents are in this game.

 

 

Kyle “Kyle_W” Wattula

Mario “Might Mar” Gomez

Character: Anakaris

Bio: Playing since the mid 2000’s Mightmar is viewed as the most senior player in the scene to this date. His Anakaris play is as legendary as the pharaohs themselves.

 

 Jeffrey “ZomB” Powell

Character: Q-Bee

Bio: Although he’s been playing fighting games for 7 years, it has been only recently that he started playing Darkstalkers 3. As a keyboard player, he’s mainly played on PC, but with the release of the hitbox paired with Darkstalkers Resurrection, he’s looking to overthrow the current console warriors.   

 

 

Stephen “Vexco” Blackwell

Character: B.B. Hood

Bio: A South Carolina native who started playing Darkstalkers 3 two years ago. Although new to the scene, his passion for the game has brought him national attention from his peers. He looks to blow up the competition with B.B. Hood and show off the game he loves.

So be sure to tune in and don’t miss the hype!!!
