    I wanna troll on SC so bad but I actually used to play it pretty serious back in part 1 and 2.

    Needs more Killer Instinct.

    2 was fun, I didn't like 3 or 4. But, 5 is pretty solid. Though, it still feels like Tekken Light to me lol. But, it's a good game.

    Wow the only Saturday in months (minus my vacation) that I won't be in Harlingen and a tourny pops up :(

    Are those weekly tournaments still going on in McAllen?

    I really hope I can make it out to the next tournament in 2 weeks. For like 3-4 consecutive weeks my family and my girlfriend's family have birthdays. That weekend being no exception. I'll just have to wait and see.

    Ugh things aren't looking good for me already concerning the tournament coming up in two weeks, I'd actually be free that Friday but not that Saturday. These tournaments are coming at the worst possible times and when I'm free there is no tournament going on :(

    Can anybody 100% confirm the Lets Play tournament this Saturday?

    I had a 1% chance of going and now as of yesterday I'm about 50/50. Got my fingers crossed.

    EVO has made it official that gems are banned for SFxT. Great move imo. I'm meh on the 2vs2. Doesn't excite me nor does it piss me off.

    Hey guys,

    We finally got the event page set up over here on SRK. So this the bacon I'm bringing home:
    $250 Grand Prize for SFxT
    $150 guaranteed pot for KOF13
    All ages are welcome

    The venue is perfect for this event. Nice and cool, good music, bar, ample seating... I pushed pretty hard early this month and the venue went for it. I know that the fighters who go will have a great time.

    If you like to drink, Deloreans has $2 lonestars and mikeys. Cigar bar is also next door. If you've never heard about Cigar bar, any beer is $2. Doesn't matter if it is a coors or a sapporo or a blue moon. There is also another legit bar down the street that has $.50 tacos till 2am. We're going to have a great time. You're under 21? You can still hang at both places (not cigar bar.)

    I've done a lot of work on the Facebook end and now Thanks to Bonnie from San Antonio, have been able to start advertizing on SRK. This is going to be a solid event. We'd love you have you.

    SirFishouse: I added the tournament to the main event thread. The facebook link seems to be down. I even went to the critical hit page and clicked the link from there and received the same error. Whenever facebook decides to put it back up. I'll go ahead and ad the link to the events thread.

    Hmm, that's weird about the links being down. Maybe they were doing server maintenance this morning. Thanks for your help Jim. Are you going to come by? I'll make you a guest of honor. You get a free $2 beer.

    LOL to bad I don't drink :rofl:. I am interested in this tournament but can't commit to it just yet. I had to miss the first tournament at Lets Play in like forever because I've been so busy. It is marked on my calendar though. I checked out DeLorean's face book page. Cool concept for a bar; reminds me of Insert Coin in Vegas.

    From what I can tell it's still on.

    IIRC Jive's also bringing a PS2 and 3s or CvS2 but that's a big maybe. Marvel and SFxT will be there.

    Well, I don't have CvS2. But I've seen some of the TSTC regulars play it. Ask them to bring it if you can. I'll see if I can catch them in the game room tomorrow and remind them to bring it. As far as 3S goes, I do have that. I'll talk with the TSTC regulars tomorrow and see if I will need to bring my PS2, or if they can bring theirs. If I don't see them at all tomorrow, I'll just bring my PS2.

    Rey has standard TV's there in the back room, and said he'll bring one out so we can hook up a PS2 to it. But I'm assuming that CvS2 and 3S was just for casual and lulz. I don't think there will be interest for even a 4 man tournament... in either game. lol

    So... is this thing starting at 2pm again?

    I CAN CONFIRM THE TOURNAMENT!!

    They had a flyer for it at the Gamestop in the mall and it read Saturday March 31st at 2PM.

    I am confirming my attendance for the tournament. I'll probably pop up around 1:30 so I can get myself something to eat before the tournament starts. See you guys there. Also I'm down for some 3S/CvS2.

    I was reading the comments about the Showdown tournament and heard it was a HUGE mess. That really sucks to the people who payed $60 just to get in.

    EDIT: Does anyone know if Lets Play is having a tournament again this weekend?

    Scroll down a bit on the comments to see where people start listing things that went wrong. I still LOL at the fact that people think they are entitled to a stream. In this case it was advertised but still.

    Not so much this thread adds, just average bitching with one or two decent posts. Linked it anyway though

    One post so far but I assume it will grow within the coming days. Seems the Houston facebook group has all the details on what went wrong.

    Like I mentioned the Houston Facebook Group seems to have the most details however I don't have a facebook profile so I haven't read anything on their group page.

    Tournament is this weekend, same as before. You guys have been giving a good turnout lately so here's hoping this one's the biggest! I can confirm my attendance for this one.

    BTW the tournaments are biweekly so we have a schedule for these.

    I'm not going to front Skullgirls is actually a good fucking game. The mechanics of how it works and plays is very solid and it is just fun. The game also looks very smooth and the animations move very fluent. I played the game yesterday for about 1 hr. Coming up with combos was fun. Right now I'm digging Valentine and Cerebella. Filia is starting to grow on me so I'm not sure if I should run a 2 person team with above average strength or a 3 person team with normal everything. I could ratio 4 it randomly but I would probably get owned.

    Cerebella is probably one of the best grappler characters I have ever played. She almost doesn't feel like a grappler. Valentine just fits my style so can't explain much there but she has an insane amount of combo potential and I already figured out a few loops with her, her aerial game is just to good. Filia just seems like a solid character.

    I have yet to try the online but this shit has GGPO so it can't be that bad.

    Well, saw kids trying to play it online at school... it looked like they were underwater. Saw some matches offline as well... meh. Didn't look intriguing at all.

    Isaac... where were you last time? You missed out on a good turnout! Looks a good chance I'll be missing out on this one. Final project at school is destroying me and my weekend.

    The Hollywood premiere of The Avengers happened yesterday and this shit blowing up hard in such a short time. The movie sounds fucking epic. And from what I read there is something after the credits (I already read a spoiler on it and if it is true then HOLY SHIT!!!, if not then obviously I don't know what it is)

    FIELD TRIP!!!!

    EDIT: I'll probably be swinging by the tournament tomorrow to see whats up.

    The Avengers is on May 4th.

    Another tournament at Lets Play in 2 weeks. Is SFxT on it's dying days already? People are showing up to play Marvel but no one wants to play SFxT. Two tournament ago SFxT had 7 and yesterday it had 4. Marvel is consistently getting double digit participants.

    All I have heard is good things about skull girls , as far as SFxT goes everyone is starting to admit to themselves what a terrible game it is there are people bitching about why is it even on the EVO line up because it is such a terrible game.

    I'll admit that Playstation All Stars game looks kinda fun. Hell no as a serious fighter but I don't mind it for shits and giggles. Parapper the Rapper made me smile. They seriously need to put the onion in that game.
