    Just moved from the Middletown area to NJ a few months ago. I never managed to find anyone in the area (who played seriously, anyway). I'm sure they're out there, though... hopefully you'll have more luck.

    I'm in Yonkers, NY so I'm not far from you. Maybe you should consider making this an all Westchester, Rockland, Orange and any other nearby Counties topic. But like you said, hopefully others from the areas would chime in as well.

    I live in Pine Bush New York, but go to college and have friends who also play fighting games in Middletown.

    I used to live down there. May be back briefly in the summer before moving on to a permanent location not named Buffalo lol. Only ever had a couple of Tekken players though. If you can make it down to NYC/NJ areas, that's where the real action is gonna be at.

    I tried the whole college gaming thing down there too, finding players that know anything about fighting games outside of established competitive areas really is tough. Middletown train stations can get you to NY/NJ areas really easily, so don't discount that option either.

    I'm kinda curious, did any of you ever wind up meeting up for some games? Things always fizzle out so quickly in that area lol.

    Hey guys,
    Just letting you all know I live in Monroe in Orange County so I'll be there during spring/winter/summer breaks. Otherwise I'm up in Buffalo during the school year, but I'm game to get a group going during the summer. I know there's a handful of players that play at Rockland Community College so hopefully we can get something more going.

    I just copped an HD PVR so im down to stream/record some games and put it up on my youtube, we just need a place to session.

    Not much into MK9, but if anyone is interested there will be a MK9 tournament at the Sound Asylum sometime this month. I'll try to post more information when I find out more about it.

    And does anyone know of a good venue in Orange County? I've been looking to try and organize fighting game tournaments but don't really have a venue for it.

    That was always the problem down there, no real venue to gather at unless someone gives up their house, like Jaxel used to in NJ. And even they had other options. I would suggest trying to set something up on one of the college campuses, get in good with the guy who ran that RCC tourney perhaps.

    Eric: Try to get down to one of the NYC tournies while you're at home, usually held on a Wednesday. Spooky's website probably has more info, or check the Tourney announcements here. I'd go with you but that game makes me rage too bad lol.

    I intend to hit up Next Level while I'm home, but my real stomping grounds were 8 on the break (admittedly mostly for dancing games and Tekken) but now that they have MvC3 tournaments every Tuesday, expect to see me on stream.

  • jonnittijonnitti Joined: Posts: 328
    lol i played a show at sounds asylum with ender and acentria. i really like that venue a lot, i wanna go back to it. but neways, like i said before, im in jersey, about 20 minutes or so from the boarder. to give an accurate scale, i live about an hour away form sounds aslyum in middletown. if anyone is down to meet up shoot me a text at 551 427 4741. ill be more than down to set something up at my place, meet up at the break, or meet up at someone else's place.

    I grew up in Rockland, but now live in southern Westchester. I'd be interested in playing actual people in Super or BB instead of on XBL.

    I'm looking for more people who play SSF4 around the area as well. It feels like I have to get down to NYC to get a descent scene and I'd like to change that

    I've been gathering with a few friends from Middletown, though there only about 5 of us, and have met with some people from Newburgh. Slowly finding more and more people.

    Montgomery resident here. I'm mainly playing MvC3 these days, but AE and MK are always in the rotation. Would prefer some online beforehand just to make sure I'm not totally out-ranked. Hit me up if you want, it's "Myke with a Y" on XBL and "Myke_with_a_Y" on PSN. Just give me a heads up in a PM if you wanna throw down on PSN; I play mostly on the Xbox despite all the salt and rage quits.

    No problem, everything is good. I've been getting together with some friends in middletown and sometimes with another group I met from Newburgh too. I'm actually going to be transferring to a school in Rochester at the end of the month, but my friends should still be in the area.

    What's up, everyone! I apologize for not coming back to this thread. I also tried to edit the thread title to include a larger area base but I didn't see an option for it.

    Anyways, I'm so free these days it hurts. I'm still down to link up at gatherings and such so let me know. I'm in Stony Point in Rockland ATM. Primarily playing MVC3 and AE. Let me know what's up.

    Post above just said Mtown was playing lol. Plus you're a lot closer to NYC than a lot of people in the country, take advantage of it once in a while.

  • CardBoardBoxCardBoardBox Joined: Posts: 44

    That would be great. I have at least one other person that would definitely be interested in that. What day were you thinking of? Friday afternoons would be perfect for us.

    Eric if you check here, I'm almost certainly not going to the Break on Tuesday if they do hold it. Driving my cousin down and back for Christmas from Rochester, and he has to work on Wednesday. I'll text you if anything changes, but for now I'd say I'm 0% on going.

    Chilling in the Washingtonville area here. Did that first monthly tournament go alright and is there going to be another one this month? Sounds right up my alley and I'll definitely go if I can make the next one.

    Not sure how far away that is from Orange County, but if you could I'd like the Hostile Takeover thread to keep up with updates, future events, and possibly meet other people in the area.

    Hey peeps. I'm at Vassar College this summer and would be down to host some casual sessions for UMVC3 sometime in mid august, probably next weekend. If enough interest is generated I could look into acquiring a large space in the college and run a tournament. So, any marvel players nearby?
