SoCal Regionals new date tentatively set for October 9-11, two lesser 'SoCal Regionals Prelude' tournaments announced to fill the gap

Notably, one of the Capcom Pro Tour's premier events, SoCal Regionals, was unfortunately delayed from its original May date due to construction issues at the venue.

While the tournament organizers at LevelUp assured would-be attendants that they were in full gear trying to find a new venue and securing the event itself, a delay was inevitable.

Thankfully, we now have a target date for SoCal Regionals 2015 - October 9th to October 11th of this year.

In addition, two lesser tournaments were announced to be planned during the gap. Hit the jump for more details regarding SoCal Regionals Prelude.

'Stay hungry to fight hungry!' Going to your first tournament? Gootecks gives 5 tips to make your debut the best it can be

With the Capcom Pro Tour oiled up with $500,000, and a growing arsenal of popular games such as Mortal Kombat X attracting new players to majors, maybe you think it's about time to go out and test your might--and you should! Going to a tournament can be an extremely rewarding experience where you'll make friendships, memories, and rivalries that will last you a lifetime.

But tournaments can be confusing and disheartening if you're not equipped with the right ideas and approaches. That's why CC|Gootecks has offered up 5 tips for you to keep in mind when you go to your first tournament. It should be noted that this advice is useful to more than those that have never gone; maybe you went to your first tournament already, but the experience didn't play out the way you hoped it would.

Some of the advice is logical but often not thought about. Tip number 2 demands that you "eat light throughout the day." With tournaments comes fast food and any other greasy meal that's quick to put you into a digestive coma. Across from my first CEO was a Popeyes Chicken, and too many players (myself included) were running back and forth between the tournament with combo meals full of fried everything. Gootecks suggests keeping to fruits, vegetables, and nuts during the tournament.

To get all 5 of this tournament veteran's tips, check out the video below.

Iron Man takes on Lex Luthor in the latest Death Battle! Which suit-bearing billionare will survive their explosive fight to the death?

We've got the Armored Avenger, you may recognize him from Marvel vs Capcom, going one on one with Superman's arch nemesis, Lex Luthor, in a Death Battle!

Wiz and Boomstick break down both combatants, usually giving us at least one nugget of information we didn't know previously in the process, and then pit them against each other in a fantasy duel.

If there's a wild card in this one, it's probably that Lex is armed with alien technology. Though Iron Man has dealt with gods and aliens before, "alien technology" is a pretty broad descriptor and could sway the battle depending on the specifics.

Wanna find out who wins? Hit the jump and check out the video.

This video focuses mainly on Iron Fist as a solo character - the only moment I can recall with any help is a THC activation featuring Nemesis - and the results are astounding. In one single combo, Iron Fist manages to switch sides more times than most of us change underwear in a week.
