    Hey guys, I've got a fat 80 gb PS3 for sale and I wanted to see if you guys wanted it before I listed it. It comes with a controller and a Blu-ray remote. I'm asking $115. Let me know by the end of this weekend if you can. See you all on Monday.

    Markus I hope everything gets better for you man. I will continue play Blazblue when I am free.

    Okay. Fucking. Clearly I didn't make it out today. I kinda just feel like, in a bit of a slump in general right now. I haven't even touched Persona or BB since the last time I was at Meta. I think a lot of my problem is just trying to find the time to do all the stuff I want to/need to. Either way, I think I'm going to take a break for a little bit (I may still, however, head to Maxout).

    Things will probably be a lot better too once I get some real fucking hours at K-Mart or a different job that actually pays attention to the hours I want to work.

    I get it. I really do. It can become very difficult to make any time for all this.

    Hey guys how's it going?

    So its been a while since I last posted here but I wanted to make an important announcement.

    Wichita will be hosting a tournament in late October and the prizes that are up for grabs are pretty good.

    First off there will be a guaranteed prize pot of $50.00 for first place in SSF4 AE and UMvC3

    The second been that we will be raffling off an EIGHTARC fightstick,that's right, an eightarc.

    Were already expecting attendance to be very high for this event so make sure you free up your calendars for October 27th.

    Start training now so you can dominate at OCTOBERFIST
    Follow our group on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/groups/129209053830689/ so you can stay up to date about upcoming tournaments in wichita,ks

    Hey I play marvel and I live in Fayetteville, AR. Do you guys do tournaments very often in Springfield?

    Just a little FYI for the few that continue to persevere at Meta, I won't be able to make it tonight. I'm sorry that this could reduce the amount of capable combatants by somewhere in the range of 33 to 50%. See you next time!
  • hypnautixhypnautix Joined: Posts: 117
    Alan909090: hey what's going on. Doesn't run tournament man sorry. We mainly go to KC for tournament otherwise its just casuals lately. Couple of our marvel players are MIA. I play a bit of marvel as well but not very good. I'm mainly a street fighter person but recently got into tekken. I'm fair with SSIV and a beginner at Tekken Tag 2.

    As for everyone else, I think I will skip today as well with Tim. Sorry but a break is good once in a while. See everyone next week.

    Hey all, I wish I had known about this sooner! I currently live in Columbia, MO for college but used to live in Ozark (which is just a few miles from Springfield). Do you guys plan to keep getting together until around Thanksgiving or Christmas? I'd kill to play some P4A or BB with some real fighting games fans since I've been stuck playing with my friends who aren't really into it. Do you all only meet on Mondays still? If you guys do anything over the weekends I'd love to try and make it to something soon since I visit my family occasionally.

    Hey, I'm the guy that hasn't been around much lately. I've been on hiatus for a while now, but I've been practicing every once in a while on BB, P4A, and SG. Main reason as of late why I haven't been by is that my Honda blew a head gasket and I've been dealing with that problem (my father is letting me borrow his dodge truck which eats gas). I may be able to make a trip out there on the 29th though, so yeah. I'd really like to at least see everybody and whatnot. ^^;

    And, since the good 'ole holidays are coming up, my job is actually going to be giving me some real hours so I may actually be able to start coming out and even heading out of town to tournaments.

    About current meetups, Meta is pretty much the only place I know of (unless we suddenly started something else in my time away). Our weekend meetup, Next Level Games has been going over remodeling, and after speaking to the owner, Fred Stark, he apparently is planning on opening a bigger store location for us to play at instead.

    I'll be at Meta on Monday, Markus. And since it's almost Halloween (and because I promised Tim and Sang that I would), I'll be there in costume.
  • MarkusMarkus Squirrel Enthusiast. Joined: Posts: 121
    Sadly, I won't be making it Monday. My truck has been having a lot of problems lately and I'd just hate to have it die out there on me.

    Some good news, however, if anyone wants to play me in Persona 4 I'm now playing that online in preparation of going out to KC for Kansas City Onslaught. I'd love all the practice I can get possible, since I'm learning a new character. (secret secrets~) My PSN is Markus_Arx so if you wanna get in some games, just add me.

    Sorry you couldn't make it, Markus. You missed me in costume . . . dressing like Iori Yagami definitely gives me the edge in KOF '98.
  • timmytmcdtimmytmcd hyper uppercut Joined: Posts: 136
    Tom, you looked like you were actually wearing Iori's clothes. Easily one of the best fighting game cosplays I've seen.

    Tonight was a fun night to be at Meta Games. Looking forward to next week.

    Hey guys, I won't be at Meta tonight. My kids are a little sick and I think I'm coming down with what they have. I don't want to spread the joy so I'm gonna sit this one out. See you next Monday.
  • hypnautixhypnautix Joined: Posts: 117
    I'll still be out here waiting. See whoever is coming.

    Getting another roll call on here for anyone who isnt on/hasn't checked the facebook group: gonna be heading out to KC this Saturday for a tournament, got Sang and Markus on board, if anyone else wants to go, just hit me up so we can get everything organized for the carpool.

    I hope you're felling better, Tom. On Monday you missed AE, KOF 2002 UM and Neo Geo Battle Coliseum. I've also been leveling up my KOF XIII so we'll see if that's true next time.

    So, in case anyone is living under a rock in this here thread, I suggest if you're interested in BlazBlue CP (aka BB3) Go check out the videos on Jourdal's Youtube Channel. A lot of good stuff is posted and I can't decide between Bullet and Makoto atm now. <3

    Also, if you all wanna see why I may just stay playing Makoto, and kinda see the new Overdrive system in action, here you go.

    I'll be at Meta tonight around 7. Thus, there is officially activity on this thread. Officially.

    Playing CvS 2 tonight with Tim and Sang reminded me why I have so much trouble in SF 4 - sweet Jesus on a pogo stick, offense in CvS 2 is a whole lot safer than it is in Street Fighter.

    It did seem like you could throw out a lot of stuff. That and the fact that we aren't fully aware of the proper punish.

    Shin Akuma and God Rugal will be at Meta on Monday night!
  • King Takes PawnKing Takes Pawn Joined: Posts: 345
    Well, got tired of waiting for steam to send me a proper cd key for SSF4AE, so I went ahead and ordered another copy for PC.
    To those still out there, what are your screen names on Live? I may not be able to make it out much, but I'd love to get some matches in online.
  • hypnautixhypnautix Joined: Posts: 117
    Hypnautix, add me. I haven't fought you in forever.

    This will be awesome. I will show off my amazing God Rugal skills. Or maybe I'll lose. Or something. People will be there. There will be matches played. I'll definitely be wearing pants.

    Oh, and I'm Caravel X on XBL and TomQuixote on Steam. Not that SFIV runs on my laptop, but I still own it.
  • King Takes PawnKing Takes Pawn Joined: Posts: 345
    Well. It appears I did in fact order SSF4AE2012 from Amazon. In England. It's going to take a while to get here.

    Drinking and shopping is bad.
  • King Takes PawnKing Takes Pawn Joined: Posts: 345
    Never mind, got it on steam. Regifting the other. Adding friends.

    Hey all, I'm selling some fightsticks and stick bags in the trading outlet. You have to be signed in to view the forum but I'm posting the link here in case anyone is interested. Check it out... you might find a deal.

    Sucks. You should keep one. I'm glad I did. This is sort of a funny hobby. Just springs back full force when you get a little bit of time and the fight game bug.

    Yeah, I'm still keeping one. Gotta have something for me to get my KOF on. I realized that I can only use one stick at a time. Funny how it took me this long to see it that way. Time to stop being a collector and to start focusing on the actual games.

    Hey everybody, my name is Jake and I'm spending Christmas in Joplin with my family. I've been hanging out with my friend Ben Weeks and we have been talking about how dead the fighting game scene here in Joplin is. If any of you guys are home and would be up for playing mvc 2 or 3, sf 4, or other fighters, let me know and we can try to set up a gaming session.
