    Would love to hear how it went, if it was successful and it's happening next week, then I don't see why I wouldn't go. So how was it? Details?

    3 stations in continuous use, 20 attendees, delicious food, and unexpectedly Sarah Williams (the voice of Peacock) showed up.
    Success! Will be happening again next week.

    Thank you to all who came from miles away to attend!
    I had the world's oldest signature so I replaced it with this.

    Oh, also, we didn't stream this week, but we might next week, since the venue has pretty good internet.

    I thought we had more than 20 at some point but either way, super successful! Bigger than wnf.

    If we had a tourney, render would have won. Patch is amazing Btw Mike.

    And I didn't know she was the voice of peacock!

    Salty Cupcakes was fuckin sick! Thanks to Mike Z for hosting what will become a classic event for the skullgirls community! Now its our job to gather more people to come and play and hang out with us. Hope I can make it every week, and hope we can set up a stream, or record some match ups for some of the dudes that cant make it out here in SoCal.

    Lots of people came! It was a good time. We didn't run a tourney since ppl were having such a good time playing casuals and hangin out, but we may run one next week. Thanks to everyone that came out! :D
    Were VAs there? =P

    Edit: oh, Mike ninja'd me. Well I guess more VAs and Justice Tang with his trusty cam would make a nice addition to the fun next time! =]
    It will be done as it was foretold for we are servants of the Skully Ones and we will consume tuna with bacon and we will party for days and nights without rest and we no need other fate despite this one! For we are what we are and we will kneel before no one >=[

    you totally need to get this on stream and then get it front paged as well. perfect timing for building hype for the upcoming patch release.

    totally would love to go to this sometime but i dont live anywhere near unfortunately.

    Woo! It was a good night (minus getting lost for an hour, ef LA). Cozy atmosphere (couches, AIR CONDITIONING; weird bathroom placement though) and crack session casuals all night long! Definitely looking forward to next week. Oh, and aside from drinks, there was mention of bacon wrapped hot dogs. Think I'll have one of those next time. I know it's a bit of a drive, but you won't regret it! At least try to make it out once a month :D .

    I know this needs to be streamed, but I'm not sure if any of us have the equipment to do so. I'm gonna look into it and see what I can find. Or we can bug Dr subzero to show up and stream it since he isn't doing his show right now LOL. It would be awesome with him commentating!!!!

    I don't see why he'd say no. Even earlier in the thread he said he'd like to find a streamer.

    I've noticed a discussion trend in many of the SG threads that fans want to increase awareness and hype for this game. For instance, notice the turn towards discussing stream possibilities in this thread and the recent trend in the patch notes thread to discuss discuss the high value/low cost of the game.

    It may be that streams won't be possible for some time. That takes effort and organization from multiple parties. However, a simpler and more effective hype builder would be to send videos for the front page of srk. This alone would bring more attention to a game that many people think is dead even though there is still a dedicated fan base.

    thoughts?

    Anyone who technically able to create videos should probably think about making some tutorials and/or tips&tricks vids about characters (s)he familiar with methinks. Or write articles if (s)he can't record stuff. Content should be created first in order to be posted. Guitalex made bunch of dope MF vids recently. That's a good starter.

    I keep closing my eyes wishing to go but keep ending up still sitting on my bed closing my eyes wishing to go.

    Moments like this make a person realize what they're missing on the other side of the country. In this case it's cupcakes and Skullgirls.

    Thoth doesn't come to these, I guess it's too far, so our quota of butter churning is sadly going unfilled.

    We totally would have had the grand finals on video, but the cameraman forgot to press Rec. Oh well, next week! :^)

    since youre in a cake shop, you should change it to butter cream. top bella player gets offered a job making the butter cream for cakes.

    at least the cameraman was consistent! just wait till you have a guy who stops recording halfway through because he didnt feel like it anymore!

    Well maybe I should show up this coming Thursday and fix that. They changed my hours at work, and I figure I can show up, if not every week.
    I is trying, sir.
