    Ted I'm down for playing. Just call me I have been really busy. So cell phone is the best way to contact me or show up at my store.
    Also I need to get that a-board and marvel 1 board too.

    Kyah, I put a bonus special in the box for you for me been stupid busy. Sorry man.


    Also I'm trying to see who all is interested in a few things. I figured I would get everyone here first shot at stuff.

    I'm thinking of going through and selling a lot of stuff. And by a lot I mean almost everything.
    That means arcade boards, Cabinets, games for DC,PS2, PS3, Wii, 360, and guides. As well as other random things I have gotten over the years.

    So I am making a list and I will post it up. Let me know if you guys are interested before I hit the trade forms and eBay.

    There are a few projects I want to start working on and something has to go..... but don't worry SuPeR 4 won't be one. So I will still be in the scene.

    Hit me up.

    that is crazy right. next year is going to be crazy, the next year to 18 months we are going to have the following TVSF, SFVT, SC5, KOF13, MK9, MKHD, 3rd strike online and a little game called MVC3. there is going to be something overlooked which sucks because everything i have seen on these games makes me want to play them more.

    I wish I was, but I will be back up at school for that time. I would like to see how I stack up against NC and GA. I did very well against Columbia but I was told their best player wasn't there so can't say how I would have done against him.

    yes you need both. i used to use those but switched to traditional. it is too bad you are not local anymore kayh, i think i still have one laying around.
  • BobSmackBobSmack BV CTO / FR Administrator Joined: Posts: 2,519 mod
    Define "traditional" ? I just want a bat top on the SF stick, and I'm trying to figure out the easiest way to do it.. Is there a better way?
  • filldohfilldoh Chief Beata Bitch Joined: Posts: 1,159
    if you want to make it feel more like a happ stick you do 3 things get a round gate not the octogate(they are in the trading forum) a battop and the spring mod . this will make it feel close to a happ, but after you get used to a jap stick(takes about 6 weeks) you realize all you really need is a stock broken in jlf.

    Well my son Alex finally fell into a groove with fighting games. He's been playing the past few MK games mostly in Konquest mode, but he has been really dogging it in MKvDC (blech) and he has starting learning principles of blocking and counterattacking and has down some combos and uses the RAGE (double blech) mode and Breakers quite well. He has been begging me to play him and honestly, he was good. Maybe a good thing especially considering the next MK might actually be worth playing as a competitive game. Who am I to complain about what game he started out in, mine was MK1 on Genesis.

    i see you've moved on to smoking a much higher grade of crack cocaine because there is no way this could possibly be true.

    sf x tekken = good for the community.

    most of us in here were born in the arcade culture so there is no line between us. 2d and 3d players that is. now, i have noticed that a DISTINCT line is growing between new/younger players. not that this line is anything new, i just think it has grown more distinct since both sets of players don't to get to mix and mesh like they were forced to do on the arcade scene. 3d players bitch about sf being the "go to" game right now and killing t6, not so much the other way around. this will tempt 3d players to venture over since the characters will be familiar and some of the moves will too. just different inputs and stricter timing of course.

    now as far as tekken x sf, who knows. namco/bandai drops the ball so much, i honestly have no clue what the fuck they are thinking 70% of the time. they put out games stateside with super delay, completely rape characters movelists for no reason and a bunch of other shit that i could ramble all day about.

    all in all it's a good move. i'm pretty sure capcom's version will be more successful and this was a long overdue. i honestly didn't think it would ever happen. had this been lets say 7 years earlier, it may have saved some arcades here and there.

    kyah, what have you heard bad about mlg?
  • LiquiTedLiquiTed **Yoga Ultra Aegis** Joined: Posts: 555
    the new MK vids look awesome and I really like the potential I see in the Tag Team mode. Very dissappointed in the fact that apparently they are keeping Breakers. Hopefully there will be some tight limitations on useage...

    kyah, what have you heard bad about mlg?

    I have mixed feelings about this. I literally grew up in the Anderson Mall arcade (as did Kevin, and Ted to some extent), yet I accepted a long time ago that there was no future for arcade gaming. I tried to convince Jordan to get rid of all his arcade equipment long, long ago b/c there was just no point anymore (and it's going to get harder to get parts, and generally just harder to FIND PEOPLE to PLAY on machines) - this is where Jordan/Ted/Larry and I have never seen i2i. I feel like we all have to move on, although I enjoy playing on arcade machines just as much as everyone, if not more.

    Now that being said, there's always been a "go-to" game in the arcade culture - it was generally whatever was the newest at the time. Some people (like yourself ;p) just didn't choose to play them, but for me, the day that Street Fighter EX2 showed up was just as exciting as the day that Beastorizer showed up (at least for about 10 minutes in the case of the latter), and THAT was what kept us all traveling around.

    And if we didn't get it at Jolly Time/Pocket Change/Outer Limits, we DROVE TO IT:

    Closest SFEX2+ machine? North Dekalb Mall, I believe.
    Ehrgeiz? The Petro station on north 85 between the SC border and the Athens exit.
    UMK3, when it first came out? We drove to a movie theater on 123 in Seneca to play that beta. DAILY!!!!
    And my personal favorite? BloodStorm - closest machine (2 of them), Six Flags over Georgia. Yes, I paid the admission - twice.

    I remember when Charlotte used to get beta tests all the time, and it seemed like it was nothing to road trip out there a few weekends a month. The thing about it all now is that the "newer" gamers have the luxury of picking up a new game without even leaving the house in some cases, so they have more time to play and they wear these games out so fast that there always needs to be a new "go-to" game to keep their interests, instead of a new "go-to" game to get excited about. Our culture (sadly) died long ago, and P2P became HCI practically overnight.

    All that aside, I agree with you - I think that both versions are going to be good, my main concern is that for once the market might actually get flooded kind of like the GH/RB market got hella flooded last year, and people will play one or the other and not both. I suppose as long as the companies keep putting out fighting games (see new MK), then people like us will still keep playing them.

    As far as MLG goes, my opinion might be unjustified - it seems like there was some scandal involving them not paying out prize money a few years back, but I may have that confused with something else. That's what old age will do to you.

    Speaking of old guys, Ted and I on an MK tag team = undefeat-able. Bet it :)

    Oh, and we're having a boy in case anyone cares/didn't see my fb.
  • filldohfilldoh Chief Beata Bitch Joined: Posts: 1,159
    yea i dont like the breakers either but the game does look very good. mk1 was the first tournament game i ever played in so i am very interested in a good mk again.

    Dez i completly agree with you. i hated the fact that when tekken and vf came out they killed the 2d scene because i love 2d and 3d fighters but i am happy that street hurt the 3d ones. I am a old school soul calibur and tekken fan but both of those games have done nothing that good in years. Tekken Dr was good but 6 fell like a step back. SC2 was awsome but 3 and 4 where infrerior so hopefully with the success of ssf4 3d fighting game makers will relize what makes these games awesome.
    good characters with interesting move lists and interesting to play and watch.

    3d games just tried to do to much stupid shit from ground bounces to critical finishes instead of making an enjoyable fast pased game that newbies can get into but that a long term player can own at.

    my dream is that in 2012 i will be playing the following excellent games

    Tekken vs sf
    sf vs tekken
    Kof13
    SSF4
    MK9
    MVC3
    and god willing a great Soul Calibur 5

    we can go on a 5 year drought after that i dont care because i will be happy playing those for a long long time.

    The debate....

    There is no replacing the Arcade culture and I loved every minute of it (except for taking long trips only to find no one playing)...

    For me there was always a trip to somewhere to play the new game. When MK2 came out (I was in Pocket Change in Anderson the day the first MK2 machine was unpacked), I fell in love with fighting games on that day. Kyah and I have travelled from Atlanta to Dunnellon, NJ and several stops between to play games and see what other competition looks like. There will never be another experience quite like it...

    Console has taken some time for me to get comfortable with but it is the ONLY way now and I don't mind it too much especially with on-line improvements that have been made in just the past three years, I can actually play again.

    I love my arcade machines and though I still occasionally consider selling them, I know i can't replace KI, MK2 or UMK3 truly on any console (there are differences in every version they try and release) and some games just feel good on a cabinet. Oh, did I mention I picked up a phoenixed Night Warriors! I love that game!

    The only game that I prefer over cabinet is mvc2. BUT now I prefer all games on console bc of stick preference. I've played scenes in NY, NorCal, Seattle, Colorado, Florida, NC, Virginia, and all over. Thanks to my job. I'll drive a 24' Ryder rentall truck to a house gathering in a heart beat. That's how much I love fighting games. And bc of it, I have friends here there and everywhere.

    yea the arcade scene will always be one of the best times of my life, from mk2 to sfa to sc1 the arcades where awesome. online is great too but there is just something about having a cab.

    got some bad news this week i found out i have a hernia(probably from carring arcade cabs) so that sucks. 1st operation here we come, i am going to try to wait until the end of the year but dam it sucks getting old. i just turned 33 two weeks ago and already i am breaking down. Well who cares as long as my hands are good i can still kick ass with GIEF!!!

    i am still hoping i can make it monday john, just depends on if the wife has plans.

    old man shit FTL. not cool @ all. i was working out the other day and popped a muscle in my right quad. been walking with a limp since wednesday...

    anyways, concerning mlg. yeah, kyah they did have problems with the payout a couple of years ago. since then, they have gotten major sponsorship and there haven't been any problems with payouts. halo and smash are the main bread winners and tekken 6 was added to the circuit this year. i guess to see how it goes. well, it's been going pretty good thus far. the turn out has increased at every stop, raleigh being the 3rd one. orlando and columbus prior to that. top 8 gets paid for tekken, don't know about the other games. not to mention if you play solid you could actually get sponsorship yourself.

    free dr. pepper, different flavors included, even diet for you geezers in here! free grab bags of doritos. free shirts. free eco water bottles. free hot pockets AND free coupons for hotpockets! not to mention other stuff i am forgetting. it's like a convention almost. it's great man. seriously. there is no reason not to go. people have been complaining about certain aspects of it (starts on friday, ppl cnt get off of work) and i myself was skeptical at first but they made me a believer.

    tons of free play. kill zone. gamer accessory booths - which isn't free but still it's tailored to gaming and they have some cool shit.

    sometimes they want you to fill out surveys at some of the stations but it takes no time at all. forgot to mention the women...good lord in heaven. they have "dr. pepper" girls and every other kind of girl working at the event. not scantily clad because there are kids there on some days but the outfits are racy. they take pictures with you and of you. it's like being on a tv show. announcers, a PA system, flashing lights, the works.
