I've been looking through the section and all the threads are years old. Was wondering if there was still anyone who plays in Westchester. I live in Harrison and I really only play SF4 and some MvC3 casually but I'd be interested in playing some offline.

    Hey, Harrison, huh? I've been hoping to find someone around here to play offline with. Sadly, I don't really play Street Fighter. I played MvC3 until Skullgirls came out, which has been more or less all I've played since. Still, might be worth looking into. Having an FG scene within walking distance is something I've missed.

    Well i'll be buying Skullgirls once it comes to PC. Yea i don't know anyone irl who plays fighters so I can only play online. Do you live in Harrison yourself?
  • ROFLironROFLiron Joined: Posts: 4
    I do, I do. And yeah, no one I know from around here plays fighters either. There was a nice scene when I was up in college in Buffalo but now that I'm back it's pretty much just me and SG online.

    I'm living at SUNY Purchase for the school year. I mostly play UMVC3 and some AE, but I'm dying to play Persona, Tekken, and DOA (and anything else) with others.

    Yorktown Area here. Playing SF4:AE as well as MK9. Network or local.. Trying to get some local events going....

    I'm in Yonkers, NY and mainly play MK9 but I pretty much dabble in anything. If you guys want to, there is a gaming center where they play a lot of AE, Marvel and anything else in Scarsdale as long as someone brings the setup. I believe they provide the monitors but someone make sure that is the case.

    The website is http://clarksonscorner.com/index.html and I have friends who have been there and told me the place is pretty damn cool.

    Clarkson's Corner is cool but the tvs are insanely laggy and there's not much competition there.

    Im from Ossining and i have to agree with you guys there is pretty much 0 competition around here except for casual smash. Iv tried making it out to next level but getting there is such a bitch not to mention expensive as hell.

    I know what you mean. I've been playing some Super Turbo lately and I know they have a cab for it but getting there is too much of a pain in the ass. If you want something closer, I think that guy bum runs casuals in his house in the Bronx. I've been contemplating going there but it conflicts with my work schedule.

    And again, if anyone wants to get some games in at Clarksons Corner I'm for it. I'll see if I can buy a Evo monitor to help out.

    Yorktown Heights player here. Im really interested in starting a scene, and the most obvious option here is to try to form Clarkson's corner into a legitimate spot. If I get enough interest from you guys here as well as on Test your might I will head over and talk to the owner about setting up a specific night and working out details.

    I'd definitely drive down there. Only about 10-15 mins from me.

    I was surprised when I logged in to 8 notifications, I kinda forgot about this thread. Maybe we can get something started.

    I made this thread trying to start up a local scene. I have no problem with you advertising your event here though, best of luck.

    Clarkson's Corner in Scarsdale has been running casuals on Fridays all summer, for anyone interested. I'll be going again tonight, always hope to see more faces.

    I was there last week. Great place, lots of setups and a good amount of people for whatever game you like to play. Marvel is big there but AE, Injustice and Tekken all had a group of people playing. I can't make it tonight but I'll definitely be back, if you're in the area you should check it out. They run casuals from 6pm-1am.

    I was wondering if anyone can recommend a great place in Lower Westchester for system repairs?

    What days dose clarkson's corner have setups. I really want to check this out.
  • Laucian456Laucian456 Joined: Posts: 16
    Has anyone thought of using Sports Time U.S.A in Elmsford as a venue?
  • Laucian456Laucian456 Joined: Posts: 16
    Because I could see about asking to use the lan center they have, but I would want to know if anyone is interested first.
  • DRC_MessiahDRC_Messiah Joined: Posts: 31
    I would be interested in sports time on route 9. May be costly though.

    I don't think clarksons does anything regular. I checked their facebook and it most events seem to be card game events, like magic etc.

    The CT FGC community seems pretty active, but for me, it's too far for weekdays.

    Still looking for anyone who wants to play locally. I'm psn here
  • nhexnhex Joined: Posts: 16
    Kick Punch Block was hosting Clarkson's every week for a while, not sure what happened to them though. Maybe try contacting them to setup casuals again?
  • Laucian456Laucian456 Joined: Posts: 16
    I agree sports time would probably be pricey, but I thought it would be cool to have some sessions at an actual arcade. Plus I thought if we could get enough people maybe we could convince them to get some fighting game cabs. Its always annoyed me that we have this humongous arcade right in the middle of westchester that the owners have done nothing with video game wise. They havent put in a new machine or even kept there current machines in working condition in years.

    I totally agree. I use to go to sports time to play mk and MvC back in the day. Well there and Nathan's in yonkers. Sport time has become more of a sporting complex with carnival rides than an arcade.

    But I would love to get some kind of scene going, anywhere. Perhaps we should join together and start a one, more than just here I mean.
  • Laucian456Laucian456 Joined: Posts: 16
    Yes that sounds awesome

    I'd totally come to sports time if anything starts there, No clue what happened to the KPB locals tho

    Watsup guys. So much like you guys, I am interested in getting something local going. I used to go to the KPB session in clarksons, but they stopped happening since people slowly stopped coming. I am looking to start a scene fresh, preferably somewhere not quite as far as Scarsdale as I am from Yorktown. Did you guys end up looking into Sportstime? If not, I can go ahead and do that. Another option I think might be possible is Video Game Plus in Mahopac, or even 3rd Universe in Croton. While I am willing to do a ton of the work to get it running, I would certainly welcome the help. Even if we can't find a venue, I might be able to host a few people at my place.

    If you guys are still down, please respond here or in the group PM I sent so I can try to keep things organized. Really want to actually have a scene finally, and not just talk about it. If facebook is easier you can message me there too, although I don't use it all too frequently. facebook.com/maneatingpanda
