    Good job. Next stop Ghost N Goblins without the warp code. Beat that and I shall say no more.

    It looks like it's pretty much yours Matt. I got no offers. Save that money buddy so you can have it.

    Thank you everyone for showing up tonight. It was fun as always. We had about 13 ppl show up tonight.

    Well that does it for the first year of Don's Arcade. I didn't know that I was gonna do it for this long. I want to thank everyone who showed up to my place this past year. And it was nice to meet this great huge SF community. You are all cool and you are all great people. I want to wish you all Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year.

    I'm gonna take some time off and hopefully I'll be back. Hopefully I'll see some of you around when I go and visit the arcades to see SSF4 AE.

    In the mean time I wish everyone well and thanks for being at my place every Friday this past year:)

    Awesome stuff Don.

    Your gatherings have taken me from a horrible, horrible player... to pretty decent, and smashing on players that used to double-perfect me. It helped me get my foot in the door of the tournament scene, and let me meet a bunch of awesome people.

    Here's hoping for next year!

    Lenin go to FFA or Super and use Yun or Yang in AE and beat everyone since a lot of SSF4 ppl don't know Yun or Yang. And get your revenge on all the SSF4 ppl. Do it for the 3S players!!!

    :)

    I was watching the matches and kept wondering why people were doing two crouch strongs into standing strong instead of doing crouch strong into the strong fierce fierce target combo. They get knockdown and free cross up opportunity. I also didn't see a single cross up dive kick in any of the videos. Gonna have to show them how to beast.

    Exactly. It's your time now, unleash the true Yun.

    I fucked up and didn't learn Yun or Yang:(. Instead I used Makoto and it didn't translate into SSF4. But I heard she got buffed in AE.

    Why don't you play something and make this challenge worthwhile?

    Let's see you 1 credit clear Gradius with no Konami Code, that's an easy one.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    Yes SecretCharacter is Jordon the Godlike Gen player who comes to my house and battles with you guys. He is a super cool dude so I encourage everyone who goes to my place and everyone else to attend the event that he is hosting. I'll probably be helping him out and let him use two of my setups.

    So everyone attend this event on the 30th. It'll be fun:)

    There is no gathering tonight at my house tonight or tomorrow. The gathering tonight is at church in Carson called Dominion Christian Fellowship from 7pm-2am. I'm bringing my 4 set ups to help Jordon out. Jordon is the host and he's the Gen player who's been to my place many times. This is not a religious event. We are just using the church as a venue to have a SSF4 gathering. It's all free and there will be free food. Here's the address:

    Dominion Christian Fellowship
    D.C.F. 21818 Dolores St. Carson, Ca 90745

    7pm-2am Tonight. Dec. 30th raffle will be around 12am. Winner gets a custom free joystick.

    All are invited. Hope to see you tonight.

    Do you guys have a working Marvel vs Capcom 2 Cabinet? I'll bring some friends on Friday.

    What should you expect from shrooming?

    Sorry, sorry, so sorry:(

    I put two of my Marvel Vs Capcom 2 cabinets at Ziggy's Smoke Shop across the from El Camino Community College. I own them still but I put them in a store so that the college kids could play them.

    When it was in my garage no one was playing it so I figure just see how they'll do in a store.

    Next month MVC3 comes out and I will have two set ups for it. So the next month I will have two SSF4 set ups and two MVC3 set ups.

    What's your opinion on the new MVC3 coming out? Like it or hate it? I know some MVC2 players hate it.

    I haven't had a lot of time nor opportunities to check out and delve into the MVC forums and threads, but is that conclusion so far of most of the community, a handful, or whatever the case may be? I don't know how I feel about the game since I obviously haven't touched it ( yet ), but if it's the SF4 of Marvel, I'm a little shaken by it. Gonna have to sit on that idea for a bit, let it simmer to get my thoughts flowing.

    Having to get alot of time with the game when i said it's the sf4 of marvel, it's just accessible for nubs to level up and then become godlike later ala judotrip shouts out btw u've improved alot. And there's still some potential for combo possibilites.. though it still seems pre-designed like sf4.

    Regarding a lot of the MVC3 talk:

    A lot of us here both or either come from what I call the old old school (Super Turbo, Alpha Series, Xmen Vs SF, and MVC1) and/or the new old school (Third Strike and MVC2) so of course, just as in the SF4 series, MVC3 is gonna be threatening to the old tradition.

    For those who grew up and played on the coin operated machine games, IMO today's consoles games are not designed or marketed to be played as serious as the arcade games of yesteryear. They are made for people to purchase the game and play it and have it in their collection. Unlike an arcade game the companies don't really care about replay value hence the easy learning curve for a game like SSF4. It's not like an arcade game where there is money on the line every game forcing you to play better and get better.

    Also, unlike console, in an arcade game the more you play the more money the machine game makes. Whereas in a console game, once you purchase it, there's no need for you to play it more since the companies already got your money. Maybe that's why arcade games were so complicated. Because the more you played the more deeper it got. So a complicated system of the fighting game fed into the economics of the machine. It's like paying little by little for a little more information at a time.

    This is not to say that the new console game i.e. SSF4 and MVC3 can't be played seriously because the passion that the community today have for these games are great. I myself just don't feel today games are as technical or complicated like they were back in the day. But that's understandable because the userfriendliness of todays's games give the new player less time to learn the game. Which is great for getting a lot of new players involved as quick as possible. So I don't think it's fair to compare the old arcade games to the new console games. But they're still competitive.

    IMO I say that with these new games, everyone has to start over. Whether you played Street Fighter forever or you just picked it up yesterday. I'm going out on a limb saying that the MVC2 Magneto and Ironman combos won't work in MVC3. It's a new world now so I think today's player either has to adapt or get the crap beat out of them.

    Even though I'm not a Marvel player myself, I have always been an admirer of the MVC2 scene. So I'm kinda geeked up with MVC3 coming out. Just because the word in the community is that there is a lot of hype and anticipation for this game. Also it gives me an opportunity to have a real Marvel scene at my place. I was kinda disappointed that no one at my place really got down on MVC2. So now next month presents another chance to have what can be a really good Marvel scene at my place.

    I always like going to an arcade when there was a crowd around MVC2 and a crowd around 3S. Let's see if that will happen with SSF4 and MVC3.
