Mash Pit

The Avengers kicked on-screen ass earlier this summer, but if you’re the kind of sadist who’d love to pummel Captain America, Iron Man, and the Hulk, then Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 might be more your thing. The latest edition of the fighting-focused video game series is of the three games featured at the Mash Up! tournament on Saturday, August 11.

SNK’s King of Fighters XIII and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition round out the trio of combo-packed titles that will be featured on a 50-foot screen as the main event for valley gamers. International fighting game champs AGE Fanatiq and LXG Infrit are scheduled to appear, and local cosplay superstar Jettie Monday hosts the action.
