    Heya! Name's Luck. Guess I'll try to make it out to one of you guys' shindigs one day, but you all stay so far north it's crazy (I stay on the South Side).

    Either way, I'll send the info to you, Tactics, but I have my own play group that plays every Thursday on the West Side of Chicago. We mostly play Sc4, but I and some of the other play just about anything (I think about all of us except 3 or so play MvC3 to varying degrees).

    Actually, looking at it, your place isn't too far from where I play on Thursdays, Tactics, so I may try to hit your place up. I'm going to be busy, possibly, on Friday, but I should be able to free up Saturday. If anyone's looking for a ride coming through the Southside to Tactics place (I stay far south), just hit me up. Only problem is that, if I'm not doing anything Friday, I'll probably just head to my guy's house on the West Side, play there, and then head to Tactics the next day (so you would have to spend that Friday night at my guy's house); if I leave out Saturday, I'll probably head out early and see if any of my guys want to head there too, though.

    And, yeah, on PSN and XboxLive, I'm LostProvidence.

    Hey everybody. My XBL handle is "TheEarPull" and I've been playing fighting games online quite a bit recently. I live near Schaumburg. My main game right now is SF4, but I play some MK9, MvC3 and BlazBlue -- and whatever else I come across.

    I'd like to go to some offline gatherings and play some good players, but I don't have a car at the moment, and I haven't found anything that I can get to with just public transport. Anyway, that's the gist of it. I'd like to get some games in with SRK people online in the meantime -- at least to see how bad I really am at fighting games lol.

    snip.
    lol hey lp. I would play MVC3 but I suck at it and don't want to smack myself in the face with how scrubby I am. Maybe I'll play this week.
    Anyways general statement here: My names Seph, I'm mostly Soul Calibur 4 but trying to branch out because I'm new-ish to fighters and turned out to enjoy them a lot. I MAY be able to make tonight but can't make promises. I'm mostly looking for MK9 and MVC3 groups, but I'm not too hot at either game and don't actually own them. I really enjoy playing and would like to get better but don't have the money to buy either. =\ How much is the Area XIII arcade? I don't see a price in the original posts and the address keeps bringing me to some construction company @_@
    ::Edit:: I would like to add I'd really like to level up my game and get better, I have fun playing but I'm competitive so I love getting better.

    Game: SSF4
    Location: Evanston

    TLDR Version
    Hi everyone! My name is Max, I'm relatively new to both Chicago and the fighting game scene. You may have met me either at Eric's AE Gameworks tournament a few weeks ago or at UFGT this weekend. At both places, I was helping out organizing the brackets, running tournaments, and wearing a Washington Nationals hat. I'm not very good at fighting games but I love organizing competitions, so if you ever plan on running a tournament, I'm always willing to help out in any capacity.

    I live in Evanston, though I do spend quite a bit of time in Hyde Park. I have a car and I'm always willing to provide a ride anywhere. The only game I really play right now is SSF4. I have Marvel as well, but I'm getting the feeling it may be beyond my skill. I've got a PS3 and my handle is "Curly_W".

    On an unrelated note, @42dollarblanka is now on Twitter. Everybody should follow him.

    Really nice job making a new post and bringing people in D! Hopefully this will help us all connect better/level up.

    Hey all, I'm John. You can usually recognize me by the lame hipster fedora I wear to gatherings (though there were a few others with 'em at UFGT, I even got mistaken for somebody lol). PSN is Zan-sam (with the hyphen), and I play SSFIV (Guile) and MvC3 (Spencer/Ammy/Akuma or Dante/Ammy/Sent). Feel free to add me!

    *NOTE TO WESTERN SUBURB PLAYERS*

    I know transportation is a pain for various people to get out to gatherings. That said, when I do go to Area XIII/Gameworks/Tactics' I come out from Dundee and am usually the farthest west person to come out. If you need a ride and you're more or less on the way (Schamburg, Bartlett, Roselle, Elgin etc), PM me and we might be able to arrange something. Happy to go a few mins out of the way if it means getting more people involved and leveling up the scene.
    The dream is dead.

    Yeah, if there's an event I'm going to and if there's room in my car I'm glad to give folks a ride, as well.
  • Repent13Repent13 I am here to kill you. Joined: Posts: 251
    New thread? New introductions. Oh booooy. Here it goes.

    Gamertag on XBL is Repent13.
    I live on the southwest side of the city in Little Village.
    I have a car, and do travel to fight.
    I prefer to game in person, not online, and will avoid online play if it's humanly possible.
    I have no reservations picking people up from easily accessible transportation routes, like bus stops and train stations, or their homes/locations if it's on the way to where I'm going, and someone has something to contribute. Be it snacks/food, gas, drinks, etc.
    I tend to look at people who act better, or more superior than others for moving a joystick more precisely, or pressing buttons better, like they are a lesser evolved species of humanity, because they are. It's hard to mix pity and laughter, but I have to do it when someone acts like they're big shit.

    You may or may not know me. My name is Mike.
    Yes, Mike. I know, a mad unique name and there's no one else named Mike for miles and miles around the Illinois area, right?. Not a single person, nope.
    I'm usually the skinny white guy in the black Sox hat, who plays Akuma.
    I can fix your xboxes, ps3's and computers like nobody's business. If there's a technical problem, chances are I'm the man.
    I'm down with people doing like Bill and Ted did, and being excellent to one another.
    I'm not down with video game or messageboard drama, and have absolutely no problems with bloodying someone physically if their mouth demands it

    I play SF4 because there's no current gen fighting game as good, regardless of the upcoming Yun-fest 2011.
    I'm down with MK because it's Chicago, and if you've grown up here, that shit's in your blood.
    I'll play marvel as a novelty game, since everyone else is playing it and it detracts from the amount of people playing sf. (I happen to think it's ass, but one of those not-totally flat asses that you'd rate like as a six on a scale of 1-10 if you're passing down the street and it walks past you.)

    Shouts to whomever I met over the weekend.
    Some new cats from the area. Think I met Houseface, who is a buddy of BP.

    (and whoever was the tall brotha with the sox hat, playing akuma, son, get a hold of a motherfucker, let's build)

    Big ups to everyone I met and played in Chicago for UFGT! I was soundly defeated in the tourney, but I still had a lot of fun with casuals and trying out AE at Gameworks.

    And to BP Amoco - It was great to finally meet you face to face. I'm def stealing your Gief mirror match strategy!

    Wow I am really in shock right now, I am completely amazed how many of you guys were just lurking our forum. I am glad to bring this change that was much needed, toss the egos aside and lets embrace our common attribute which is enjoying games. Anyways Ill be at AreaXIII in a few, if you have any questions for me ill be playing SSF4 with Ibuki/Rufus mainly. To all you guys who really do want to get into fighters, by all means please come around, would be great to get to know everyone a little better. Keep them post coming guys, if you are new please come out and tell us a little about yourself. Chicago is so huge, there has to be even MORE of you that want to play but got deterred by our old thread.

    Hey, Chicago dudes. I'm just a simple small-town Minnesotan (resisting the urge to slam the Bears :sweat:). I'm entering my senior year of college this fall (double major in Public Administration and Political Science). And I'd REALLY love to move to Chicago after I'm out of school. So I'm wondering...how much money would one need to save up to best make the transition to Chicago? Ideally, I'd want to be near public transit (removing cost of vehicle) in a 1-bedroom (or studio) apartment. Eventually, I'd want to get a cat, but that's not quite relevant.

    I guess right now I'm in the brainstorming parts of all of this. Things I'd like to know I've made up in a neat little list. I've looked up some of it myself, but I'd love to get input from actual Chicagoites...Chicagonians...Chicago residents on the matter.
    -Ideal part of town to live in? I know those big cities are split into tons of neighborhoods and whatnot.
    -How much would I ideally be looking for (per month) for an apartment/studio?
    -How much would public transportation cost? I know Chicago has some good transit, but I'd be prepared for it to be pricey.
    -Simply put: how expensive are things? That is: cost of living and whatnot? Specifically things like food and other things necessary to, you know, live.
    -Entertainment in the area? That's one of the big reasons why I want out of small town Minnesota. I love the feel of a small town, but there's so little to do. I'm sure there's a fighting game scene and all, and I know of sports (I would totally plan to go to a Sox game when the Twins come to town), but I'm sure there's other good stuff in the area, right?

    Chicago just seems like an ideal place for me. Its big, its busy, there's transit, and I've been told that it still has some of that midwestern charm I've grown up with (whatever that quite means). I've got the entire school year to think about all this stuff, but I really want to get my degrees and hit the ground running. I don't think I'd have a huge issue getting a job, since I'd be okay working a crap job for a time (Ideally, I'd want to work in the government, but I'd be patient for that), but that's something I'll need to worry about when the time comes.

    The verb "commentate" is sometimes used as a synonym for "comment on" or "provide a commentary for." It is not yet fully accepted as standard, though widespread in sports reporting and journalism.

    Rent for a 1 bedroom is anywhere from 600 to 900 i would say dependent on the area. It depends on what you are into the typical spots for out of towners to move to who are not looking to spend too much money would be logan square, wicker park or ukrainian village. Or you could go more preppy and go lake view/ wrigleyville. Tons of stuff to do in those hoods and lots of people from all over mostly transplants and students. Transits cheap compared to gas get a CTA card and the bus and train are 2.25 a ride. Its expensive but the jobs here tend to pay better than a small town. Check out craigs list and look at places. Look on yelp for stuff close to where you are looking to see if you would fit in there. Good luck.

    There is more then enough room for anyone with any skill level at AreaXIII. People are willing to help you, all you gotta do is show up and get playing. Ask questions if you feel that you are missing something or ask what you are doing wrong. There are plenty of people here that have started from scratch and now are playing very decently and some are really good while still improving. Anyways hope that helps, nice to meet ya and take care.

    God, I love the new alert system on this site. Thanks. Exactly the kind of stuff I was hoping for. I've been keeping notes on this sort of stuff, since I know I'll get to the point where I'm going to need them. The tricky part is finding out just how much money I'll need to make that move, when the time comes (especially since I'll have to start paying off student loans at that time). Bleh. I hate the future sometimes. :arazz:

Never been there and hoping to make it out in a a few weeks when i got money for gas, and hopefully more after the summer as my school is closer to addison then my house. Well mile ways its about 10 closer :( but hey still closer and late class on wednesday, so things looking up :)

    Also, does anyone play Vampire Savior? I'm not sure if it's even feasible without PC emulation but I've an interest in the game for a long time and no way to really get into it. Really wanted to sit down at the cabs at UFGT but they were usually being played, I didn't want to take time away from people who actually knew how to play.

    Area XIII has around a dozen CRT monitors set up around the room. People are encouraged to bring their consoles, games, and sticks (or controllers).

    When AreaXIII is open again ( I think after the 14th) people should come out, I hope for our Chicago's sake these guys play characters besides gief... I run the AE tourneys at Gameworks, and there is another one on the 26th, so end of the month and you can practice on your shit at home. I encourage everyone over 21 to come out tomorrow night and play AE as well. Going with what Joe said on his post, we need to start helping each other learn the game more, ask questions, help train. We are the biggest midwestern city yet, possibly the free-est.

    I'm down for having a session on this at AreaXIII next time if others are down for it. I want to at least try and get some basics in, the game looks really fun but I'd like to at least try it out. Someone should bring a laptop for it. Don't say GGPO because I haven't the time to try and learn it myself.

    I'm hella busy these days, so I'm not out to gatherings too often but I still try to make it to some when I can.

    I have a PS3, my handle is OneHPMonster

    Looking forward to fighting here in Chicago. All I really play is Street Fighter 4, and really not much at all. I'm from Champaign, IL, and I moved here last year. I've been to about three tournaments in Chicago and have done pretty well. Looking forward to leveling up my game as much as possible. Hoping to play ppl with a good mindset and are willing to help others and not complain about the game. Always ready to fight and learn form others. Peace...

    Kenny.
    Working with Webster, Syxx, and Humbag, I do my best to be a constant source of drama on these forums.

    I don't know how to play any video games (I don't own a console. I just bum off of my brother's XBL [IMASlusho]), and I'll be at UIC for grad school in the fall (I just moved out of Lincoln Square and back to Indiana this week).

    I'm the guy with dreads who isn't DerekLearnSlow (ObservedEgo), a.k.a. the small one, not the tall one.
    Swiss Cheese! Unacceptable! You're getting on my bad side!

    Durr, of course. Thanks for reminding me. Just installed GGPO, getting some games now. If anyone has any advice on installing PS3 mad catz TE drivers on Windows 7 (tried a few months ago and wasn't having much luck) I'm good to go.

    get the driver for the ps3 eye here. That will make the ps3 controller work as well on your pc.

    Not necessarily new to fighting games, just new to the scene.

    No available Online IDs as the lag causes me to rage (blessing in disguise, in hindsight).

    Looking forward to playing with new players.
