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

    Yes I do. You'd have to go inside the arcade machine though and stream it. Sounds tricky but if you can do it would be cool:)
    Hey man we need to all introduce ourselves somehow Don. Everything is too tense, we need more laughter in that mug.

    Oh ya don't worry guys. A lot of us haven't seen each other in a month so I'm sure everybody will warm up to each other again. The familiarity with each other will take care of itself. That's why I like having it weekly so that everyone starts to know everyone in a regular basis. Having said that the culture at my place has changed a little with the entry fee but I'm sure it's not that big of a change. It shouldn't affect the social aspect of my place. I think. Everything will take care of itself. All in time gentlemen. All in time. I see last Friday night as the first gathering and my reintroduction to the community. Everything will be fine.

    Oh Tim's cool. That's just Tim. He's just a really intense guy. Tim's writing a paper about my place for his journalism class. Right now he's interviewing me and he's intense. He's asking me all these provacative and personal questions. Which is good. It feels like I'm on 60 minutes lol:p

    AS LONG as I can get a split signal we can stream off the composite signal.
    I like specials.

    Check it out one of these days. I really don't know how to stream off an arcade machine. Hopefully we'll figure something out.

    I probably won't show up for a while, seeing as how there's this aura that "Joe fucked everything up for us!" Plus I haven't been playing lately and I'm starting to appreciate the extra time I have.

    Anyway, as far as equipment goes, I do have a capture card, so if you want to capture any video just have someone bring a laptop or computer and I'll send the capture card with Jason or Neal or someone. It can capture component and composite and we have a VGA converter so we can capture that as well.

    Don't know about that aura you're talking about, and I'll be the first to admit that's not anywhere in my collective of feelings for what happened.

    I'm glad you posted bro. No it's not your fault man. To be honest with you in the recent months I was always leaning towards charging. So you had nothing to do with it. Remember you're always welcome to my place. And if you want to hang out just text me or pm me here. I thought it was time to make things fair for myself. Before I liked giving it all away for free but now it's just time for me to charge.

    I think $5 is a good price for what I offer to the players. I think it's actually very generous. So don't worry it won't go any higher or any lower. It will remain at $5 as always. I think of it in terms of quarters. If each street fighter game cost a quarter to play then I think it's a bargain. And you're not only playing SSF4. You're also playing unlimited games of 3S, ST, CVS2, PF, and Vampire Savior.

    What I learned from the last session is that since players are paying now they are more focused on playing the games since they have something invested. Also they are staying longer since they're trying to get the most out of it which is good because the main purpose of this is to keep people playing from 7pm-4am.

    Remember there are also money matches so players have an opportunity to make something for themselves playing Street Fighter. I asked anyone last session if they wanted money matches put the vibe wasn't there. It's ok because I know I just started again and everyone has to once again get comfortable with me and the new system. The money matches are not a benefit to me but for the players. Think of mm like street racing. I'm gonna leave it at that.

    And I will end with a quote from Gangs of New York.

    "You said there is no boxing in the city?"

    never mind saw that you sold it already. U would of got a full refund with what ever you paid if you had the OG receipt. Not store credit, unless u used store credit to buy it lol.
    Mac Book Price question.

    Can you let me know which one? Apple is notorious for not giving dealz. From what I remember, my brother's best friend haz a PC tech support place and would always use my brother's UCLA 10% student/faculty discount. Sometimes they have an offer for free ipod or what not and they would sell that to bring the cost down.

    If you can be more specific on which model(s) I can do sum searchingz for ye.

    Then I guess we have some mixed information, cause a friend that's been working at a gamestop tells me it would be store credit, not money back.

    Don, I'll be there this Friday, and I may let you leech a costume pack off of me if I get it. :]

    I was just gonna get the entire super 4 costume pack collection for myself, and then try to get it on your PS3 through my account if that's even possible. The newer outfits coming out, I'll wait for the entire collection to be released. Not a lot of them grab me, except for Cody's orange jump suit outfit. Cheaper to buy them all in one pack anyway.

    yah I think u had some mix-up on teh infoz. if you look on da back of receiptz it should let u know everything.

    He probably thought you had opened copy which = trade in value(store credit) or cash for used games (80% of trade in value /20% deduction)

    if it is an unopened/sealed game (must be unopened if new, okay to be opened if used lol) , a full refund is given in the form of payment u gave (30 days for new stuff/ 7 for used)

    Dude it's cool. I don't care if people come in drunk or high. As long as they don't bring alcohol or drugs into my garage and share it with everyone or leave empty beer bottles on my neighborhood sidewalks it's fine. If you drink or get high in your car with your buddies it's fine. That happens all the time.

    It's funny actually. There are a lot of people who come to my place and smell like weed and there are a lot of guys who come back from the bars in Hermosa or Manhattan that come to my place to sober up. They just sit there and watch games while they sober up. For me that's cool actually because I don't want guys driving home drunk. I like helping out. I rather have them sit there on the stool watching street fighter for a couple of hours while they get their senses back. This place is built to absorb all the wonderful Friday night So Cal lifestyle. Some people use it to play games. Some people use it to sober up after going to the bar. Some people use it as a pit stop before they take their girl to the beach. Some people use it as a place to eat their In N Out. It's all good in the hood.

    So good times to all.

    Don, a couple questions:
    1) Has Shane been in for the past couple sessions? (well, I'm including tonight's, since I'm assuming you won't see this until after the session) I need to money match him :/ FT50 or something if we somehow could manage to pull that off without you noticing.
    and
    2) Are the Christmas lights up yet? I need to come down and see them. Obviously not today or next week, but the week after that, I might be able to come down. Let me know!

    Hey Lainy

    Shizza texted me around SCR that he was taking a break from SF. I don't know how long his break is. So it's most likely he won't join us tonight. But there are days where he shows up and I wasn't expecting him so you never know. But I'm not expecting him tonight but it would be cool if he did show up tonight. So it's random.

    Christmas lights go up the day after Thanksgiving:). Hopefully by the start of December everything will be lit up. I'll keep you posted about that.

    And no Lainy, your badass Viper must not die. You must keep it alive and thriving. I wish I could take your Viper from you if you don't want it.

    Oh the official headcount last night was 17. Last week was around the same with 16. Same number but a different group of faces.

    So we should expect 16-17 people on the average every night. Which is great. I just wanted to announce the number just to inform the community that there is still a good amount of ppl playing here so that it's worth it.

    Thank you all for contributing. I appreciate it.

    Hats off to Alice for the utter destruction of the entire crew. Did anyone manage to beat her?
  • Naked_SnakeNaked_Snake Joined: Posts: 604
    I think the angry reporter beat her, but not without a slur of "FUCKS. SHITS. FUCK." That was actually good comedic value, LOL.

    .. I'm so not ready to tackle those kind of beasts in Super.
    .. Yet!

    Blonde Afro is his handle.


    I wanted to stop Alice's win streak but it was more fun watching Tim frustrated. I did manage to get the guy with the 61-win streak.

    Andrew kinda hinted at MMing me... let me know if you still want to. I'll bring $$ next time.

    ggs to lenin in 3s. I felt like every time I got a round off you, it was because of a random mgb.
