    Hey guys.

    I've been extremely busy the last few weeks and haven't even been able to think about this. However, I just called up Hastings again and the store manager still has not heard from their district manager. That's a little ridiculous considering I gave him the proposal almost two months ago. I'm going to start looking into other locations again now that my schedule isn't so full.

    Oldbean - you mentioned Players and Spectators. Did you look into that at all? It might be difficult to secure a spot there on a Friday night unless it is otherwise not used. Could be worth a shot though!

    On another note, I got to play Katsuro last night for a bit on XBL from Moscow, ID. I got thoroughly trashed by his Ryu. He's no longer allowed to come to the fight club :rofl:

    Heh, I'm not too surprised. His execution was extremely tight. I did get one game on him though! It's weird to play a Ryu like that when there are so many awful ones on XBL.

    I'm officially comfortably moved into eastern in Cheney - contacting gaming clubs and possibly starting my own for fighting games (we'll see) but I'll have internet on Friday and will hopefully be able to meet some of you guys online soon. I'll hopefully be able to host some in person sessions and make it to yours as well!

    So anything new on the Spokane area fighting game community?
    I just recently got into ssf4 and would love to know about what's available. I'd rather get my ass handed to me IRL than online, at least that way I could get some direct advice as to how to improve.

    hiei_yasha, I can give you feedback if you wanna spar in an endless lobby, add me

    so let's start scheduling this and work something out with all of us

    i can probably do stuff at my place on a weekly basis, just not on the weekends unfortunately, and i'm all the way in cheney (long way from some of you!) but weekends for me are tricky, i'm trying to get sundays off at work - maybe i can do stuff more reliably that day than saturday?

    i dunno i just want to play humans again.

    Lets meet next week sometime, what would be a good time to meet that everyone could meet up? I'd love to do that 5 vs 5 with montana and get some games in before the online tourney on the 5th.

    Hey Everyone, I'm trying to have a ssf4 or Marvel gathering at my house this Saturday the 4th. Shoot me a text for direction. 480.352.0833

    Hey guys, how did the gathering go? How many people showed up?

    Sorry you guys haven't heard from me in a while. Hastings never got back to me and other commitments in my life kind of took over so I haven't had a chance to think about SSF4 much. I'm considering just hosting the thing at my house for the time being but I was wondering how many people we would be looking at.

    I have two TVs (50" plasma and 32" LCD) and three 360 TE sticks, but only one 360 console. If someone could bring another console and possibly a stick, we would have two full setups.

    I haven't played any games on the LCD TV yet so I would have to test out the responsiveness of it.

    Hey guys,

    So I talked to my wife and we are open to hosting some people at our house. Space could potentially be an issue but I imagine we can fit 10-12 people comfortably. Hopefully we could have three setups. If Ronny comes, we would have three TVs and two 360s, so someone would need to provide a third console for that to work.

    Who would be up for doing this Saturday, 12/11 at 7:00? It's kind of short notice but even if only a small handful come it would be nice to get to know some of you.

    My wife offered to make some food and we can have some pop or beer on hand. We're not trying to make a profit out of this but if you'd like to get in on that, bring some cash to offset the cost. We would probably be looking at some appetizer-sized stuff - mini pizzas, cheese quesadillas, mini BBQ chicken sandwiches, that sort of thing.

    I'm most interested in playing SSF4 but if you guys want to have a machine dedicated to MvC2, SFII HD Remix, BlazBlue or whatever, that's your call. My machine will be strictly SSF4 though :wgrin:

    In summary:

    Where: My House
    Time: Saturday 12/11, 7:00-whenever
    Games: SSF4 + whatever we can agree on
    Let me know about:
    Number of People
    Interest in food
    If you can bring consoles/sticks

    Call me at 509-954-1663 for directions, my name is Derek. I live out in the Valley near the Rosauer's on Sprague.

    Also, be SURE to mark your equipment in some way so you know it's yours!

    Thanks guys!

    there might be a chance i can snag my GF's console as well for a 3rd rig. last summer i ran a few fight nights with some other SRK members. so ill try and see if i can contact them and get them coming...(one cat has a deadly ass viper).

    EDIT: i contacted 3 people and they more people, but we shall see. the spokane scene goes in spurts sadly.

    Awesome, just let me know how many to expect. Hopefully my house can fit everyone.

    What about sticks? Can you or your friends bring any?

    It sounds like a lot of you are in school so that's probably why the scene goes in spurts.

  • Anti-FreakAnti-Freak Gentlemen Corpse Joined: Posts: 605
    yeah.. i really dont know if they will make it for this event. if this does become frequent event in the future(I.E. Summer). i would expect 5 ish more people around that time. for now, maybe 1-3 people. as far is sticks go... mine are all PS3 sadly. unless we make the 3rd set up ps3.

    Edit: 3rd set up we could run like BB or tekken just for some added flavor.

    Yeah, it is kind of short notice. If we can't get enough people together this Saturday we might just scrap it for something in the future. I will see how many show interest and post tomorrow morning whether or not it'll happen.

    Let me know if any of your friends are interested as soon as you can.

    A PS3 setup should be fine, especially if you have two sticks. Just keep that gross Tekken game out of my house.

    I KEED I KEED.

    EDIT: Any game on your PS3 is fine with me, but to be honest the only other games I might be interested in would be MvC2 or HD Remix so we would have to figure out what other people wanted to play. Even then I'm not that great at MvC2 or HD Remix. I never really got into 3D fighters like Tekken or Soul Calibur. I dabbled in BlazBlue a little bit but it didn't take.

    Does your girlfriend play? My wife is big on watching but to get her to touch a controller takes a couple Jack & Cokes first.

    Are you a math major by chance? Just noticing your signature :tup:

    As for next weekend, my brother is in town so someone else would have to host. I need to play you again Sol, you rocked me pretty hard last time. One of the of only Akumas I've ran into to actually have a proper vortex game!

    Alright, so the for sure list I have right now is:

    Myself
    Anti-freak + girlfriend

    I think we might need a little more than that. Ronny - find someone to carpool with!

    Well, for now I am going to say that tonight is cancelled unless some other people show interest last minute.

    I may be able to host next Friday or even Sunday but Saturday would be out for me.

    Would you guys mind PMing me your phone numbers?

    EDIT: So I realized that there are several people who likely aren't following this thread anymore and probably have no idea this is happening. I sent them PMs hoping they'll get e-mail notification, so we'll see if any of them come through.

    yea, if you want to cancel this saturday that's fine (gives me more time to hone juri&rose =P). i live just down the street from you. so if you want to have a meet and greet match anytime next week works too. yeah, my gf plays but she has a loss threshold haha.

    as for MvC2 i suck ass, but im down. need to get a feel before MvC3

    So I decided to just host this thing with whoever can make it. Anti-Freak - check your PM, and Ronny - check your voicemail.

    Anyone else interested, give me a call at 509-954-1663.

    I thought the Gonzaga game was earlier but it gets over around 7:30, so we might push this back to 8:00 or so.

    Alright, so the first Spokane Fight Club was a roaring success! Actually, it was just me and Ronny Haines playing SSF4 for 3 hours. Good times! I came up as the victor in a first to 5 but Ronny assures me a salty runback is coming!

    However, I am planning on hosting again this Friday and it sounds like several of you will be back from Pullman. Let me know if you are interested!

    We will have some food, likely mini-pizzas, BBQ chicken sandwiches, and chicken and cheese quesadillas, probably for around $1 each for us to break even. We will probably have some beer and pop on hand as well.

    Where: My house
    When: Friday, Dec. 17th, 7:00 PM
    Let me know:
    -Number of people coming
    -Interest in food (please bring some cash to offset cost)
    -If you can bring any consoles, sticks, or TVs

    If Ronny Haines and Anti-Freak come, we will have two 360 setups and one PS3 setup. That might be enough but it depends on how many people are interested.

    Let me know ASAP! Call for directions or questions, 509-954-1663

    Well I will be back up in CDA as soon as Wednesday and no later than Friday and I will be up their till mid Jan. It depends on when I get a take home final finished. So I will definitely be showing up.

    I can lend a small HDTV, an Xbox, and one Arcade stick. I normally would have two sticks, but I busted my custom one.
