Don's Arcade Torrance

I'm hosting SFV, Ultra SF4, Third Strike, Super Turbo, Hyper Fighting, Alpha2/Alpha3/Vampire Savior, CVS2 & MVC2 casuals.

Location: TEXT OR PM ME FOR ADDRESS @ (310) 344-9367

Run Time: Every Friday 8pm-3am

Entry Fee: $5 fee per person.

Facebook: https://m.facebook.com/groups/619052738200755?ref=bookmark

I have two PS4 setups for SFV. Both are on a Ben Q Monitor each provided with two Mad Catz TE2 sticks so you don't have to bring any controllers. BUT IF YOU MUST: FEEL FREE TO BRING ANY JOYSTICKS OR PADS OF YOUR CHOOSING. I AM, HOWEVER, NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR JOYSTICK IF IT BREAKS HERE. BRING AT YOUR OWN RISK. The third PS4 setup is hooked up to a head to head Delta 32 Arcade but this machine is only either for SFV or Ultra SF4 but most people here use it for Ultra SF4. SO SINCE ITS ALREADY HOOKED UP TO A CAB NO JOYSTICKS ARE ALLOWED ON THIS ARCADE CABINET SETUP.

Arcade Games:

All of these arcade games are on Sega Astro City Head To Head Japanese arcade cabinets:

Third Strike (2 setups)
Super Turbo
Darksoft CPS-2: Alpha 2, Alpha 3, Vampire Savior, or another Super Turbo
Capcom VS SNK 2
Marvel VS Capcom 2

So here are the following games I will have on BOTH PS4's:

SFV
Ultra SF4
Tekken 7
UMVC3
INJUSTICE 2
Guilty Gear XRD Revelator R2
KOF XIV
MKXL
BlazBlue Central Fiction
Dead Or Alive 5 Last Round
Skullgirls 2nd Encore

All the games are already downloaded onto the console so all you have to do is pick which one you want. It's first come first serve on what game you guys decide to play from the list. Yay we got variety here now:)

RULES:

This is my home. Please have respect and decency for me and for my place.

Everyone must pay the $5 entry fee after they enter my garage and before they play one game. Once you enter my garage you must find me and pay me $5. Once you pay me and get it out of the way you are free to do anything you want. You could even leave my place to go out for food and come back. So please make it easy on me and pay me the $5 entry fee as soon as you enter and get it over with so that you can have fun.

When you get to my place DO NOT KNOCK ON THE FRONT DOOR. Go to the front and there will be an unlocked door in the garage to your right. go in there into the garage. WATCH YOUR STEP WHEN YOU ENTER ITS STEEP. It should be obvious because you will see the light and hear the noise that will come from the garage.

So anyone and everyone is invited and all are welcomed. There is no limit amount of people who can attend so if you want to feel free to bring people with you. The more the merrier. Everyone, however, must pay the entry fee. If you're a regular and you know the place you could just show up. No need to call. If you're new and you would like to attend call or text Don at (310) 344-9367. I prefer text. Contact me and I will give you the address.

EVERYTHING ENDS AT 3AM. If everyone is still here and I'm not tired we shall go all the way to 4AM.

No alcohol or drugs.

No smoking. If you must smoke, smoke outside on the sidewalk so that you could throw your cigarette butts away in the gutter. No smoking in the garage please. And please throw your cigarette butts in the gutter of my driveway and no where else. Please don't throw them anywhere else. I could get in trouble if you throw it on my neighbor's property.

No racist comments please. Racist comments will not be tolerated.

Trash talking is allowed but keep it fun. Don't let it get too personal and don't get out of line. Please keep it in the game.

I know when you're playing for hours you could get thirsty. I'm selling water and a can of coke for $1. I am also selling candy for $1.50 a piece.

I just want to make it clear that OUTSIDE FOOD IS ALLOWED. JUST KNOW THAT THE TRASH CAN IS THE BLACK TRASH CAN OUTSIDE. I don't mind you guys bringing your food and drinks when you come over. If there are any volunteers we could also send someone out on a run to get us McDonald's or In N Out.

It's ok to leave your empty cans and plastic bottles laying around my garage since I recycle. I will collect them later. BUT PLEASE THROW AWAY YOUR FOOD WRAPPERS AND TRASH. I GOT ENOUGH TRASH TO CLEAN UP AFTERWARDS AND I DON'T WANT A MESS. PLEASE DON'T MAKE MY PLACE DISGUSTING. BE NEAT.

I have the right to ban anyone if I want to. So please don't let me get upset with you because I don't want to ban anyone and divide the community. I want everyone to be able to join the club. So stay on my good side.

Have fun. The whole purpose of this place is to have fun playing Street Fighter together. I myself don't play as much these days. But I like hosting and helping the community by providing them a place to gather and play once a week. I do this for the greater good of the So Cal Fighting Game Community. I just want to get as many people playing offline Street Fighter or other fighting games competitively as I can.

There are all these fast food joints on Carson street right by the hospital. An In N Out to the left and a plaza that has Weinerschnitzel, Fatburger, Carl's Jr. and Starbucks. I know if players are hungry they get grumpy. JUST REMEMBER WHERE THE TRASH IS. IT'S THE BLACK TRASHCAN OUTSIDE THE DOOR.

SO THESE ARE THE RULES OF DON'S ARCADE. EVERYONE MUST FOLLOW THEM.

Thanks guys. Hope to see you. Drive safely.

    I don't know about buying costumes right now:(. Sorry.

    But Lainy if you want to see the Xmas lights you should come over before January. They take them down either on New Year's or the day after New Year's. If you care about Xmas lights lol. Just so you know:)

    Not to entirely derail anything, but if anyone going tomorrow is interested in a copy of Call of Duty Black Ops for PS3, I'm looking to sell mine. Dropping the $65 for it, and only able to get $35 store credit back is meh.

    If anyone's willing to bite, PM me. I'll be there tomorrow evening.

    I saw Kobe firing a gun in the commercial for Black Ops. WTF?

    I can help you. Do you still have your receipt from where you bought it? I bought multiple copyz Call of Duty Black Ops for video 94 to rent for about an avg of $35 from toys r us.

    PM me if you want help. If he has not opened all his copys I can give you a sealed one to return for your full money back and you give me your open copy cuz they are gonna open it and rent it anyway. If not, recommend trading it to amazon for $42 and when you get another game it will be tax free & free ship so it does not hurt as much as trading in to a local store, CA sales tax is azz about 10% so add $6 to every $60 game you buy.


    If any of you are wanting games for PS3 of XBOX360 I suggest buying them from toys r us until saturday close this week. They give you a $20 gift card for every game you buy $59.99 and above and if you buy in 2s, u get $50 gift card ($25 each game). The catch is the gift cards do not activate until 6 hours later from purchase.

    What's a cag? Never heard that term before lol.

    It's like in Mean Streets where one guy calls some guy a "Mook" but nobody knows what a "Mook" is.

    De Niro: "What's a mook?"

    Damn the In N Out drive through takes forever.

    Also, if anyone that's going tomorrow is somewhat knowledgeable with TE stick modding, I want to bounce a question or two off of you. It isn't anything big, I'd just rather talk to someone directly about it.

    Thanks guys.

    Yes the $5 will last you all Friday night to early Saturday morning from 7pm-4am. If enough people are feeling it, I will keep it open until 5am.

    So please make this easy on me and greet me first and pay the $5 so that I can get your name on the list and you can do what you want to do. You can play then take a smoke break and come back or go out to eat and come back. Or if you're feeling it, go to the beach and come back. The beach is like only 5-10 minutes away from my house.

    When you give me your name, give me two names. Preferably your srk name and your first name so it's not personal like when you give me your first and last name. I wouldn't like giving out my first and last name myself but if you want to you can. It doesn't really matter to me. It's just to distinguish if other guys have the first name as you. So for example on the list I will write "Memories Todd" or "Dander Lenin". It will also give me a good idea of remembering everyone by name and face.

    So everyone and anybody are welcomed. You can bring friends if you want. The more the merrier. There is no limit. Just remember that entry fee for the electricity bill is $5 per person. I will be texting everyone shortly for the reminder. Anyone new who has never been to my place before and would like to come please feel free to text me at (310) 344-9367.

    Remember when you come here go through the side open gate by the garage and never the front door.

    Thanks. Hope to see you all tonight. Drive safely:)

    These are the rules from the Gamespot Versus 3S Dan Rankings page:



    XgVR@i?@TCg


    I'll provide translations:

    - Newcomers start off at 1st Dan.

    - Players generally fight against others of either the same rank or one rank above/below you in order to go up a rank.

    - One match won = +1 point, one match lost = -1 point. +3 points moves you up one rank, -3 points moves you down one rank.

    - The ranks are 1st to 10th Dan. Past 10th Dan are special ranks such as "Kyousha"("strong man", my kanji reading may be off though).

    - Players past 10th Dan can only fight against others of the same rank. +5 points moves you up one rank, -3 points moves you down one rank.

    - Ranked players can play in other arcades with their rankings as is.

    I just grabbed this post from some thread by some dude

    We don't need 10 players to get this going and if some of the players decide they don't want to try it this week (you), the rankings and points carry on indefinitely so they can always jump in at a later date to avoid facing off against a player that would scrizzape you (me).

    Naked_Snake, Herman and other random 3s heads from Don's this is for you. All you other players that say you like 3s, this is also for you. I will even coach you to victory.

    See I'm already lost. I'm new to the Danisen thing, I just wanted to get something that might spark more interest for the sf4 player.

    You can start at automatic kyoushutthefuckup though

    Oh that reminds me.

    Money Matches!!! $5 minimum. Loser can request a double or nothing but winner must agree to it.

    I will pass around a sign up sheet for money matches. One for SSF4 and one for 3S.

    Everything first to five.

    Maybe. I need to make sure there will be 3s interest because even after giving ssf4 a real chance just burned me out. It was too...flowchart. OMG he finished a combo, start over!

    Thank you everyone for joining me tonight. It was good to see you all after a long layoff. We had 16 ppl total. A great number I think considering I'm starting all over again with new rules.

    Thank you all. I appreciate it. I hope everyone got home safely.

    Next week.

    Good stuff as always, glad to see Don's kicking again.

    You weren't angry late night blanka were you?

    As for the rest of you...

    Hey man we need to all introduce ourselves somehow Don. Everything is too tense, we need more laughter in that mug. It's easier to take tips from a clown than it would be from a giant standing over your bruised ego. This is in regards to both 3s and sf4. To those of you one here that know those guys don't have an account here. Do your best to get them to make one so that we can all get to know each other a little better. We are a team. Or rather we gotta be, if we plan on improving. No more angry nerdom. I am partly to blame for that. Ok mostly to blame for that.

    I think I did good in 3s, after warming up I noticed my red parries were becoming a little more common and in sf4 I won more than I lost last night which is good considering I kept changing characters. Good games to the lot of you.

    In an attempt to spark up some conversation and maybe an ice breaker for next time Don hosts I offer you guys this:

    The Two Things about Computer Programming - The Fishbowl

    The Two Things

    To those of you that don't want to read or don't have the time to read it says something along the lines of:

    "...For every subject, there are really only two things you really need to know. Everything else is the application of those two things, or just not important."

    What are your two things for 3s/sf4. This is to get you to see the game as your opponents see the game and give you a much more broad look at the game as a result of opening your mind. You can watch and try to do as your favorite player does, but you'll never know why he does what does unless you get your head out your own ass and take a peak in his, no homo hahaha.

    The why is fundamental. It is only when you learn the "why" that you will be able to truly learn. Otherwise you are just imitating and an imitation is only a cheap copy. Strive to be.

    My two are Anticipation and Execution. If you want to know why, you'll have to ask.

    Hope this doesn't come off as stupid and if it does, just say so. This is an open forum and I'm sure Don and crowd will agree with me when I say we would like to hear what you have to say.

    Expect a few trollish replies but don't let them get you down, they are there to keep you from learning or encourage you to learn. Those are two things to being a troll, btw.

    Let's do this, ladies.


    (if this is all worded funny, I'm sorry. I have been reading through some philosophy books as of late and am currently working through the Tao Te Ching. Speaking of which, anybody here up on their eastern philosophy? I would love to learn a thing or two from you guys.)

    here's that link you reuested Don. I haven't touched it since 08 when I first put it up because I forgot the n:p and am too scared to ask preppy for it haha. If I can remember it, or muster up the courage to ask him, I'll work on a nice little layout for us to work with and maybe Vince can help me with organizing the database. Nothing too fancy, of course. Might just end up being links to Don's Arcade matches or Links to youtube's of said matches. Maybe some inspirational blurbs or whatever they're called. I'll see if Vince is interested.

    Would this sound like a good idea to any of you? Do we have any other artists in the group? I can draw but I'm more of a lines kinda person, if we got any people good at coloring, I'm down for a collaboration.

    Also, would any of you guys recommend a good c++ book to go off of? I don't think like these online resources. They are too...bleh.

    Holy balls programming, keep it away from me. Would be nice if we could do one of those things where we could record matches for people that have in mind to get better and watch their own replays of people here, but I don't think we even have enough space for that, and it was just day one of the "new regime" so interest could be all over. I'm all for trying to level up people, but the interest and desire has to be there in order for anything to work beyond two weeks.

    And muzras, appreciate the looking out for the COD return, but I got someone that's gonna give me some cold cash for the game; it beats the return store credit since bills is more useful. Thanks again for the offered help. :tup:

    Definitely this. There were a lot of times I would sit down to play a game against somebody, and I'll say "Hi, my name is Jay". I'll usually get a bland "hello" back and the rest of the game would be silence.
  • Naked_SnakeNaked_Snake Joined: Posts: 604
    That's just because I don't like you Jay. JUST KIDDING.

    And Lenin, I watched one of the videos up on that site, and god damnit. I just remembered I had that beanie and it was stolen from me at Cerritos. I hate that place so much now, THAT WAS MY FAVORITE ONE.

    Also, I'm thinking of my two essentials. I'll get back at that later.
  • DanderDander BANNED Joined: Posts: 7,227


    oh yeah and here is proof that these games can still be fun at a high level.

    I was crying of laughter all through out. I think the last one was my favorite though. That one or the akuma that did fierce x lk spin kick walk up fireball

    the music doesn't help in restraining that laughter either!

    Dunno, the Yun vs Urien with Yun throwing himself literally into the aegis FTL struck something fierce in me. That one, and the Makoto command grab follow up fails.

    Hey Don do you have wireless internet? I'd really like to stream at your place. Preferably thirds strike or super turbo if possible.
    I like specials.

    We're not shoving anything down anyone's throat. The community here is divided as it is. Reducing the number of groups from 10 to 3, The want-to-get-betters, the don't-care-about-getting-betters, and the what's-srk?, is step up in my eyes. If we really are successful and the value of coming together becomes more apparent through our play and attitude, I'm sure even the What's-SRK's will come around. And if they still don't change their minds, well at least this way we'll all be able to respect one another wishes and have a few laughs while doing so.

    We are not in High School anymore. We are all as nerdy as the guy to your left or to your right. We are one. Stop segregating yourselves.
    Holy balls programming, keep it away from me. Would be nice if we could do one of those things where we could record matches for people that have in mind to get better and watch their own replays of people here, but I don't think we even have enough space for that, and it was just day one of the "new regime" so interest could be all over. I'm all for trying to level up people, but the interest and desire has to be there in order for anything to work beyond two weeks.

    And muzras, appreciate the looking out for the COD return, but I got someone that's gonna give me some cold cash for the game; it beats the return store credit since bills is more useful. Thanks again for the offered help. :tup:

    You really have no evidence to back your claim for two weeks beyond that of your cynical mind, no offense. Sure you might've been let down before but to be honest nobody was really trying for anything. Sitting down with a player, shaking his hand and then ignoring him and just playing isn't any different than playing from home over xbl if you aren't going to interact beyond the game. Street Fighter is about learning what your opponent is like. You can't really do that without having a conversation with him/her. If your opponent refuses to talk to you, take that as hubris and strike it down during your match
    . When you win or when you lose talk to your opponent and if they still continue to act in a way that "offends" you, just keep trying. The Berlin Wall didn't come down over night. (Stay away Godwin's Law!) What exactly do you have to lose by trying? This, btw, also means being open to criticism. If what they are telling you feels condescending explain to them that you understand what they are talking about and ask about a different topic in which they displayed more knowledge than you.

    more in a bit, arguing with my girlfriend and don't want to mix up both arguments.

    ok back.

    I lost my train of thought but long story short.

    KEEP YOUR EGO OUT OF THE FUCKING GAME, because at the end of the matter you're both just playing as imaginary heroes on a box that shoots bright lights at you and instead of jumping around and kicking and all that junk all you're really doing is this


    it's still fun though.

    Oh nono, I just merely meant it like how we were talking last night with Hardware vs Programming. Haaaaaaaaate programming. Could never get into it. If there's something I can help with I'll do what I can, even if it means taping stuff on my baby iPod nano and ripping it off of there some how.
