    Wow that venue looks amazing. What part of it are we going to be in? I'm guessing the "Arena" because of all the open space. Whenever you get details worked out for the tourney/post the thread, we should try to promote it hardcore and get more out of staters interested in going.

    Basically they told me the arena area, but they want to block most of it off and form a smaller area for us. Might be alright, but I'm wondering what would happen if we get more than total capacity for this area, not that they couldn't expand, but would they be able to move the set-ups into the larger area, know what I mean?

    And you bet I want to promote this thing, once we figure out an exact date, I'm posting on SRK and letting everyone in the midwest know.
    Working hard to get noticed.
    Put something in the music threads, good chance I'll like it.

    Quick note: my bad on hogging up the IRC channel. I just expect my shitty internets to boot me after time, apparently they are less shitty so i will make a point to not idle in the chat when i pass out in a drunken haze. My apologies for any inconvienence everyone.

    and now....to pass out in a drunken haze!

    It's not a big deal if you idle, it's just that when you are on for days at a time and no one has OP it makes it hard to get it back.

    And yet again I am back after a few weeks with no internet. In other news, I'm finally important enough at my job to have weekends off, so I'll be free on Saturdays and Sundays starting Oct. 16th.

    In regards to the BB:CS finals though. To me it isn't as much a surprise that a Taokaka won as much as the fact that the Taokaka player ran the entire match and made the Bang look like a scrub.

    Nice - new thread. :) I think a friend of mine (should be here under 'Papa Phewpills') and I posted in the old one. We're in Cedar Rapids, and willing to travel for some casual games. We might even be able to host here in CR, depending on how many interested parties there are. We pretty much just play SSF4 at the moment, but plan on getting MK and MvC3 next year.

    Goddamn. Xboxes red-ringing all over the place.

    I just shipped mine in for repairs... planning on bitching at them good to see if they'll give me a newer model that's less likely to RRoD.

    Surely by now, they must have fixed the design fault in SOME edition of Xbox... right? Right?

    Not 100%, only on Facebook did I sign up. What concerns me is that on the registration site it still has the max amount of tickets for the other two games and SF4 is at 127 tickets left instead of 128...... so yeah......

    So we just had some Russian guy join the IRC channel (legit, I checked his IP) and ask us if we smoked weed. Good times.

    Day change because someone reserved it for Thursday. Games will now be on Wednesday.

    So how much are you guys playing super? I'm strongly considering picking it up if the arcade version gets patched in. I've always liked Yang as a character and if he's halfway decent i'll most definitely give playing him in 4 a shot.

    Klaige, are you coming to SB? Do you know any other GG players who may come? I'm trying to look at maybe getting 23 on 23 together. No Anji's have RSVP'd yet.

    There's a few of us here in IC. What do you play?

    I got into fighting games through sf4/super over PSN, and I want to try going a bit deeper into it if I can balance with college. I'd like to try third strike if I could get my hands on it, I only just found out about ggpo after I got here. I played mvc2 for about a week before coming to IC....

    I haven't been on here in awhile but it looks like that game night at Jay's CD and Hobby never came through?

    That's pretty awesome that games are going on in Ames now that I'm moving up there at the end of the month. After I move up there we can have games at my place too for an alternate location. Lots of floor space on the main floor and we have 2 HD tv's with PS3's and 360's on each.

    Jay doesn't move into his new building until next month, and then we can begin negotiations. But don't hold your breath.
