    I'm going to be deactivating my Facebook for the time being. Mostly just family stuff. If anyone wants to get ahold of me I still use the forums, most IMs, and my phone.

    Hey I just moved here from Los Angeles and was wondering if someone can give me a ride to casuals. I live in Northeast Minneapolis. I haven't played Street Fighter in awhile and i've been craving. I've been constantly looking for a job and could use a little break now and then. I know a few people already but they have work or busy during the weekdays. If you can I would greatly appreciate or even playing at your place would be nice too. I'm just bored!

    You should make it out to the Tourney today. If you are in northeast, it should be pretty close to you!

    Shoutouts to me, Ladromadon, Kodi, and Ogrebait nearly dying as we spun into a ditch on 94 while going about 65mph. Fortunately no one was hurt but Kodi's car needed to get towed and might have some damages :( Needless to say we did not quite make it to comic-cade.

    On a happier note, is anyone else enjoying UMVC3 as much as me? I really didn't like vanilla, but Ultimate just seems to have fixed everything that sucked about vanilla and made the game fun and much, much less random.

    The Good News they're safe :), but I feel bad for what they went through and for the car. :amazed:

    Freakin Snow! >:(

    UMVC3 is a game I still need to work on and I'm fine with it as of now. :sweat: I just need more knowledge and more passion to play it. Maybe its just me trying to balance other fighting games. Oh man, talk about KOFXIII next Tuesday :amazed:
    also wanna say thanks to rick and twins city for the tourney and punnha for the stream

    Indeed.

    Thank you Twin City Comics for hosting the place, Rick for setting up the event, Punnha for video stream and along with Tom, Shogun for organizing the tournament, Brian and James for taking photos of the tournament, and all that have helped made this tournament. Games N Go also sponsored this tournament. :china:

    It was amazing to meet Juicebox and got in some matches with him. :) Its something I don't get to experience a lot with high-level players. I would like to thank him for giving me tips. Plus, he's hilarious :rofl: I know he is interested in KOF XIII, I would like to see him progress in KOF XIII because the KOF series is a game that I've played and I have some interest in the past KOF games.

    I had fun and I got to do a commentary for the first time and enjoyed it. I probably would swear/curse a lot, but it is PG-13 :eek: How about have me drink and commentate 8-) Yeah, see how that would look like. :smokin:

    It was a unexpected snowy chaotic day o_O and I think that may have caused some issues with some that may have wanted to come by. As we have heard about the WI friends (Adam, Evan, and Kodi) and other members from MN. Damn you Snow :lame: It had to be that day.

    Next Tuesday, KOF XIII is out. I might be seeing Desmond and Erik again. :china: This is going to be another game to learn. Gosh damn, me balancing other fighting games. I hope to see if any others would like to play KOF XIII. :rock:

    Now I'm back to my almost everyday life :rolleyes:

    Thanks for putting on the event guys, good stuff.

    So it turns out I have access to a laser cutter. My home made hitbox version 2 is going to be just awesome, looking for acrylic/lexan today. My question to you fine fellows is does anyone have any 24mm sanwa snap ins laying around? I can order em but if anyone has spare I could save a few bucks.

    Oh and a spare xbox controller I can gut would be nice to so I dont have to go buy a new controller just to destroy it.

    Thanks for the correction. I updated it in Tournament Maker, so the next time I list brackets it will be correct.

    It's the same reason that I went 1-2 and tied for last. There were enough Byes in the bracket so that everyone who didn't get a Bye in the opening round received a Bye in the losers bracket. In your case, you won your opening round match, then lost your second match. You were then matched up against Punnha who received a bye in the first round of the losers bracket (as did everyone else in the losers bracket after the first round).

    I have a bunch of extra 24mm sanwa black snap in buttons, if I can find them. I'll let you know. No controller though.

    Makoto is one of the best in the game.
    Your Makoto is uglier than a Hakan mirror match.

    Is anyone else picking up a 360 copy of KOF13 today? My 360 just ate the disc before I could fucking boot the game or install it.

    I've no idea if disc resurfacing fixes this or whatnot, but if I can install it off someone else's disc I'll be dandy.

    So I have a question about umvc3 now that it's out. My Xbox is my permanent desk setup so I use it every day (ps3 not so much) I'm wondering if people play it online enough to be worth it. I see a few people on my friends list on Xbl playing it, but do you guys usually play against each other online?

    I play pretty often on late night weekdays (pretty much 10pm onward), I'd be down for doing a local lobby during this time if people were around.

    I know I don't come out as often anymore cause of my own problems but seriously.. For UMVC3 at least... I feel like Vergil is a good char, but I feel like he's really hard to get in with from a serious perspective. I mean, you have round trip, which is completely ridiculous, but if you hit him before he starts it or hits him while its going, it stops. I completely agree with that, that should happen but, its still really hard for him to get in. I mean, you can call assist and all that, but I always think from the lower end of the stick which is...

    What if I don't have an assist or whatever anymore... He has teleport but he can't get in. I mean, he has three different teleport's which is good but still... I still feel like even though Dante got hit by nerfs, he's still better. Do not disrespect but I LOVE VERGIL!! I loved him by the first time he got introduced into DMC but I still feel like he's lacking. Dante has an air dash forward or back but Vergil does not. The only thing Vergil can do is if he jumps is... j.d+H, f/b+H for a throw or a tech, or if your holding round trip, and you wouldn't let that out if you were going to tech or hit them or whatever, but you see my point.

    Seriously... I feel like Vergil is a good character, but lets go off of the skill level difference and just talk about statistics and what he has. I mean... lets say you watch a guy and he's killing with Arthur or such.. Yeah, hes killing with Arthur but that doesn't mean he's a high tier or a super good character if he's a good guy being good at the game. That's just the person seriously. You might just not be watching out for matchup's or whatever, but seriously, if you're aiming to be in a top spot... You better be knowing all of these facts and even more than that to keep it going.

    I'm seriously just touching the bare minimum but... w/e. Its just how I feel but think about it in your head. I know everybody's knows what I'm saying at least.

    Yeah. I agree but I still feel like its hard for him to get in at certain times. I do love Vergil and how he plays though for sure. He's got them swag combos.
