    Thanx I already joined those guys on my Facebook a while ago but it seems most of you live in downtown or North Houston. Just looking for people in my area.

    Anyone in Northwest Houston, around Cypress? There's 2 or 3 players I know of here and we'd love to get some games in over Spring Break. Ultimate Mahvel mostly, but hell I'll play anything at this point.

    Okay so I know there isn't a lot of activity here but I don't have a Facebook so I'm hoping this will get to the right people. Is anyone driving out to Final Round later this month? I'd be happy to share in the expenses for gas and I have no problem driving 10 hours straight if need be. I will have my rooming situation settled when I get there I just need a ride and really dont have the funds to take all the expenses on my own since I just moved back here from Seattle really. Please if anyone sees this and thinks they may know someone or can help in anyway let me know. I'm actually a regular at these things and would hate to miss out on this years Final Round after last year was so awesome. Hope to hear from someone and thank you all in advance.

    Gotta adapt and get a Facebook or at least a filler one so you can see the stuff on those stupid groups. Unless you know people within the city or go through Facebook, this thread is as dead as it can be.

Good luck to all the players, and good luck to the organizers. I hope it is a great turnout and tournament so that Showdown can become a big force in the national tournament scene.

    Is there anything going on this week in Houston?
    If not I can host at my place on Westheimer.
    I may even be able to provide transportation if needed.

    Last time I went to tilt all their machines were straight up tarnished, SFIV especially. To begin with the machine had what I believed was custom controls, as tapping mp or mk would either taunt or FA. I also recall other moves being switched around. What's more, just lying your hand on the cabinet made it pick up inputs. MvC2 had some problems too iirc.

    Definitely wouldn't recommend Tilt.

    I spoke with the guy that runs the place and he confirmed that they are
    open late only for Fighters... $5 entry is no problem. I'll be there around
    midnight-thirty, it would be cool to meet some of the Houston crowd...

    Whoa, saw some great fights last night.
    Houston fighters definitely have some skill.

    Insomnia is pretty awesome, had a great time.
    Chris (who runs the place) is awesome too.
    Sadly, the days/hours are the exact opposite of what I need,
    so I won't be able to make it up there very often.

    Anyone up for some games on Mondays?

    Well I got there at about midnight-thirty, and there were still about 15 - 20 people there.
    Most were strong fighters in the games that they were playing, Saw some great matches.
    SF4 Akuma vs. Balrog, Adon vs. Cody... Also plenty of Marvel players and even some
    Mario Kart action.

    I love what Chris is doing with the place-- I only wish it were not the exact opposite
    schedule of what I need... Maybe I should get a new job!!

    I'm hosting games tomorrow morning at my place... Got two people so far,
    anyone else?

    Hey Texas,

    I am an active member of the Kansas City scene that will be down in Houston for about 3 weeks in August (from around the 7th through the 23rd). I was wondering what kind of events/hook ups are going on down in that region that I may be able to attend and get some games in with a different set of players! I mainly play SSF4, but I dabble in UMvC3/KOF/Skullgirls
