We at All Cool Things™ were happy to have the opportunity to attend Final Round 2018 and witness the largest Southeastern Fighting Game Tournament in the USA!
For those that do not know, Final Round is an annual international EVO affiliated tournament that is streamed live all over the world.
Heavy hitting sponsors such as Capcom and Bandai Namco show up in full effect to share goodies from the past, as well as for the future, such as the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection and Soulcalibur VI, which were both on hand for unlimited play!
Final Round is beginning to embrace cosplay as an aspect of their tournament and is definitely beginning to have a convention-esque vibe to it! There was a cosplay contest with 11 contestants, but I'm sure that by next year, it will feel more like a full cosplay event, just based on the buzz and response of this one. Hershey Kissu, all the way from Canada came to compete in the cosplay contest as Morrigan from Darkstalkers!
Nabs from Victrix Gaming was there, and we got to try out what could be the next big thing in professional gaming: the Victrix PRO AF! These professional grade headsets come complete with hybrid noise cancellation and patented trademark microphone technologies that were exclusive and military grade!
Who knows, but with some more guidance and word of mouth, Final Round could become something to rival Anime Weekend Atlanta and Momocom. 'Maybe it will even take Dragon Con by the tail..?
Wow! Dust off the cobwebs! Sorry for the inactivity. Hopefully that is over!
Please check out the "Take It or Leave It" under our "Stuff" heading. We have a brand new interview with Neverending Dreamz. In case you've been under a rock (like us) he is an up and coming cosplayer and master of the keyblade!
Also, for the first time ever, we have bonus material for members of the site, only! Yup, "Membership has its privileges."

October 15, 2016 marked a great moment in Georgia Convention history as AniBlaze officially completed their first convention!
It was somewhat impromtu, to test the waters and get the word out about AniBlaze, but was a success nonetheless!
