Queens, NY - A more local local.

NuezNuez Joined: Posts: 17
What's up guys. I'm just curious if there's any Queens players in here that would be interested in having some offline session time in SF, MVC3, etc. It's not always possible for everyone to trek it out to a venue in NYC or in Brooklyn due to time restraints and RL responsibilities so maybe us locals can help each other out!

I'm currently looking for a local spot in Queens where we can have some casuals and improve our game. If anybody's interested post up or PM me.

    Same here. Hardly anything happens on Queens NY and everything else happens in Brooklyn or Manhattan! i Seriously need to get some casuals in too. I just don't wanna take 1-2 hour rides every time :D

    I play MvC2 and I live in Queens (in Woodside). I don't play MvC3 or SF. If anyone wants to play some MvC2 Dreamcast sessions, just let me know.

    I also upload videos (over 5,600 MvC2 videos): www.youtube.com/Bretth123

    I know there's a biweekly session at Break Bar and Billards in Astoria. People should come out to that and *coughbringbettertvscough*. ;)

    I'm in Sunnyside too; would love to step into this once I get my joystick build completed. Playing online is fun and all, but I swear I'm getting worse as I'm learning how to fight all "lag-like". (PS360+).

    If we could get a weekly tourny going in Astoria/Bayside/Flushing that would be great.

    Does anyone know somewhere we could do this?
  • lethalmonk6lethalmonk6 Joined: Posts: 35
    I would consider myself a knowledgeable beginner in Marvel 3, would it be worth it for me to show up for the Break Billiards sessions in Astoria. I dont really have a way to play anyone as I cant really afford to pay for XBL right now

    Well I was thinking even more local and for training purposes, but I might drop by in those biweeklys somewhere in a few months.

    Is it worth playing online? Why would it not be worth playing offline? At least offline no one is going to send you hatemail and you can discuss what you are doing wrong/right and how to approach a difficult matchup/situation with the people who are putting you in that situation.

    I'm in Forest Hills, which is closer, but for me to go over someone's house and play they have to be near my age. I'm not going to show up at a 16 year olds house and have their parents wondering why the fuck a 30+ year old is hanging out with their kid playing video games.

    Simply put, said player must be renting or owning their own place.

    I was at 8 Bit and had a blast. point being Reipin is right. if i go to someone house i hope they own it cause it just plain weird when you show up to someones house to find out their 16. if i was that 16 year olds parent. "You asking to get rape or something!"

    i'll check out the next event in Astoria.

    Reipin, i live in Kew Gardens. I don't own ssf4 but I do have marvel 3 and apparently really suck, lol. What do you play?
  • Reipin PillageReipin Pillage Lover of thigh highs Joined: Posts: 2,826

    This thread interests me. I'm from Yonkers NY and the drive to Astoria is hella easy (I know because one of my best friends lives there). Because of that, I'd be willing to drive down to one of the bar fights bi weekly sessions. Is it free?

    It's free but you have to order a drink or food to support the venue.

    They played till midnight I think, last time. No session this Wednesday though.

    Reipin Pillage: "I'm here to play games with your 16-year old son"
    Mom: "Are you going to rape him?"
    Reiping Pillage:"No."
    Mom: "What's your name?"
    Reiping Pillage: "Reiping P-"
    Mom: "GTFO"

    Hey, I live in Forest Hills too. I'd be down for some offline...you use Gouken? have I met you before? Are you Paul?

    Yup, that is Paul.

    For all of you curious about Break (in Astoria):

    http://www.meetup.com/The-PS3-and-XBox-360-Gaming-Meetup-Group/

    ^meetups get posted there. 21+ but everyone is welcome, bring a stick or a copy of the game if you can just in case people need to leave early. Or bring some evo monitors, I supply one but the bar doesn't really give us anything but space.

    CAPCOM VS SNK 2 and VAMPIRE SAVIOR event happening again this FRIDAY. Drop by and say "what's up?" to your brother Brooklyn if you have the time. Shit may be super serious this wknd as it is the day before SF4AE SBO qualifiers and we may get a fair share of out-of-towners the night before. Also, ALPHA 2 may possibly be held as a side event for the eve. Stay tuned on http://twitter.com/#!/SKILLENNIUM for news on the event.
