For UltraGamers 2019

Saturday, March 30, 2018 | 20:00–02:00 | Machine | Boston, MA US

Join us for our first-ever event during PAX East weekend in Boston. This is a new show idea we’ve come up with for one purpose: create a show that highlights the best in United States born talent that have appeared on Asian rhythm games and throw them into a club environment for an absolutely bumping show. This show features AkiraComplex, DMAshura, Speedycake, and IDPH with support from DJ Bad Axe and Sawtooth. For UItraGamers is a hardcore music night that you won’t want to miss!

Shine 2018

August 24–26, 2018 | Seaport World Trade Center | Boston, MA US

Shine is Boston’s biggest Super Smash Bros. tournament. Featured games include 64, Melee, Smash 4, Rivals of Aether, Street Fighter V, and Dragon Ball FighterZ. In addition to the tournaments, there will be merch booths, an artist alley, and live commentary. We’re supplying DDR and ITG on freeplay and partnering with New England Rhythm Games to host a DDR tournament on the newly-released DDr Extreme Pro upgrade! This upgrade allows for “Marvelous” timing during gameplay. For those interested in the DDR tournament, purchasing a “non-competitor” pass will grant you entry into the venue and allow you to enter the DDR tournament.
