    Break Billiards is quite close to where I live (Midtown, 59th & 6th), but how about having sessions Not at the same time as Guard Crush??

    Sorry I couldn't attend last week, I had to work on wednesday though that's usually my day off. I should be able to attend the next one so long as I don't end up doing a swap at my job again.

    Sounds good to me; unfortunately Wednesday is my only night that I can host. I will be more than happy to put you up as a meetup organizer if you want to host at Break on Mondays or Tuesdays. Alternately if anyone can bring in a laptop with HDMI out we can hook up and show the stream.

    Are there any good or decent places I can go to play that are like in walking distance from St. John's?

    Sadly, I don't think there is. Your best bet is the bi-weekly sessions at Break Billiards. You can find the rest of the info in the thread.

    I'd host casual sessions at my place, but I'm currently living with my parents. So, that's really not going to happen.

    I'm looking to host some causal mvc3 action in preparation for ultimate and eventually a small tourney scene, i live walking distance of queens college and st.Johns. I'm not against playing sf4 but its not my focus right now, i wanna get into streaming the events but i don't have any idea where to start. I do live at home with parents but that shouldn't be a problem. I have been to next level and break billiards and plan on going back to NL when Ultimate tourneys start taking place. If u interested in participating let me know.

    Thread moves slowly indeed. We post most sessions privately or on Meetup.com just because it is easy and clean to rsvp and see maps and such. Session last Wednesday was fun but not posted here because sometimes SRK just doesn't like Chrome it seems and I don't check it much outside of work. But anyways, let us know when you get to Astoria and we will get something going.

    Yeah we should be doing it 1/18 at Break in Astoria. I moved last weekend and just have too much unpacking and stuff to do this week to host. If you guys register on the meetup page you can post any equipment you can bring to reduce the amount I have to haul. Like if someone can bring an Xbox it makes it easier for me to haul my Asus.

    We switched from meetup.com to a facebook group since that's free.
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/403434036336898/

    No meetup at BREAK tomorrow, they have some kind of special event. Monday Night Mashfest on the 16th by Times Square and probably next Wednesday we'll do BREAK.

    whats up queens;
    I designed a shirt and it was suggested i share it here

    I will be selling it locally first..preorders are being taken between now and the last friday in april; and printing takes 1-2 weeks
    http://mrmarkrobson.com/keep-calm/
    all (S, M, L, XL) shirts are $20 (+$1 if you go through paypal when i set it up); printed in brooklyn on american apparel shirts
    2X and 3X are available but I have to see about the price and will get back

    cash in person and delivered in person at NL or 8bit in manhattan or break astoria sessions—im doing this to keep the cost down for the local scene as when i open it up i will have to charge shipping

    models.jpg

    feel free to email me or reply here if you are interested or have questions; ill confirm here if i am making out to a break session and if there is interest!

    LOVE this shirt. Not sure if we know each other yet "IRL," but hopefully I can get one from you at Next Level sometime (I'm going tonight). Also, swinging by 8-bit would be easy for me. Also, I need to check more often for events at 8-bit.

    Oh, I didn't make it this week, got a little too busy. I'm not certain which friend you're describing though; I know a buddy of mine was out that night but I'm not certain he was at BREAK.

    We're running back $KILLIONAIRE FIGHTING again this year but there will only be FOUR EVENTS in the span of 3 mths. This will be a summer event so if you're into classics like CVS2, Vampire Savior, and Alpha 2, you definitely do not want to miss out on this.

    Hi Queens people!

    For those who haven't seen me yet on these forums, I'm Damascus, French, and I just arrived to New York, gonna live here for (at least) 18 months. I used to live in Paris and I really liked to organize offline sessions at home with the French community, so I'm obviously gonna do the same thing now that I'm here.

    I live in Astoria, just 2 blocks away from the subway stop Astoria - Ditmars Boulevard (last stop for N and Q lines)

    Now that I'm perfectly settled in, got a 1BR, a TV and TEH STREET FIGHTER IV, I'm trying to meet people who'd be interested in coming over for an offline session. I can host 3 or 4 players (so counting me, we can be max 5, I don't have more chairs, and I also live in a quiet neighborhood so I don't want my cute neighbor to hear our continuous mashing :D )

    So who in this forum would be interested in coming over for an offline session? I'm hesitating between organizing it on Friday or Saturday. I'd actually prefer saturday because 1/ we can start earlier and 2/ that'd allow me to go to the gym on Friday, but if people are more motivated to play on Friday, I'll probably go for Fridays.

    What games do we play?
    - SSFIV Arcade Edition: which is my main game, I only play the other games at a very casual level. I play a pretty decent Ibuki, and I suck with all other characters but I'm trying to find an alt
    - KOF XIII : God I LOVE this game. But I play like shit. If you do play like shit, just join me
    - Street Fighter X Tekken: I don't have it yet (will receive it soon), I didn't like the game that much but 2v2 are cool, and I've trained enough to have a not-that-low level
    - UMvC3: just to troll around with Deadpool. I actually don't like the game that much, it's just imho fun at low level, so if you're a big UMvC3 enthusiast you may get bored quickly
    - Soul Calibur V: Kinda like it but I've never hit the training mode.
    - Super Street Fighter 2THD & Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting : just in case of extreme nostalgy

    I have one Qanba stick at home so you better bring yours

    Oh, I play on Xbox 360 BTW. I also have AE PC on my laptop but I usually don't play it (input lag/no input lag just kills me)

    So you probably understood that I'm willing to organize mostly Street Fighter IV sessions, and we'll also probably play a little bit of the other games :)

    So if any of you guys is interested, just post here or PM me!

    I'd like to organize my first session this Friday or Saturday (May 25 or 26 )

    I'll also be at Next Level for Big Two tomorrow if you want to meet me!




    See you soon!

    Nice, welcome! I'd like to join, I'm always down to play. I don't have much Ibuki experience cause no one in my group plays her so I'd love some offline games.
    I can't make Friday but can probably do Saturday. I can bring SFxT and a stick.

    Also, if you wanna meet me and some other people from Queens come by this Wednesday the 23rd to BREAK in Astoria, (the post above yours). We're there till midnight.
