    Once again, I fail to get notices from this forum :( If anyone's still about and up for playing, I'd love to get together! Particularly Darkstalkers. Is anyone in our neck of the woods giving that game an honest shake?

    i think i am, at least for now anyway. i do plan to play it with folks when i travel out to some tourneys so i guess i'll see how i feel about it after playing the dedicated fan base.

    sadly we don't seem to have any gatherings anymore. our local scene is non-existent. only a couple of us go out to tourneys sometimes, that's our scene right now sadly.

    Summer is coming up for me, I'd like to go out and play more often. Injustice is pretty fun actually right now. I hated MK9, but this is fun. I'm down to play Marvel, Injustice, or Street Fighter (though I haven't played for over a year haha)!

    Scott: I'm really enjoying Injustice as well. Is Abe planning on hosting something in the summer? I really had a lot of fun the last time I was able to come up.

    proud to say i got asked to help on the Vega portion of this. :D

    so i think we may be able to start having some locals again in the near future, so possible great news. someone i haven't seen in awhile mentioned the idea of hosting at his apartment (we could have like 3 setups i believe), someone from Auburn and his friends in Warsaw are looking to meet up and play sometime, and i met a guy by complete chance yesterday that is into SF4 a bit and watches the tourney streams and he may want to meet up with us at some point. things are looking up :)

    Ooh, very nice! I keep hearing about your awesome Vega and that you've done so well with him... No wonder you were asked to help with that :) It really makes me want to play you in Super Turbo sometime and see just how it goes, as Vega's my favorite character in that game as well.

    Great to hear that we have some prospects! All of those sound well within my realm of visiting and I've been hungry to play against some real people. Just had a friend here get rather frustrated at me for how I played Blazeblu (My worst game...) against him and another who refuses to play any fighting games against me whatsoever, even new ones! Online just seriously loses its luster compared to real people these days...

    Also... This may be me being selfish, but I'm planning on joining a tournament at the upcoming Gen-con in Indy. I particularly want to get together with you guys so that I can get some training in and figure out just what game I can even play there!

    So, yeah, please keep us up to date and let us know when stuff is happening! You've got contact info for most of us, I think, so don't be shy about using it ;)

    I'm down for Marvel any time now that summer is here. If people actually go and meet up I will come =)

    Send me a text or message on Facebook and I'll try to make it.

    yeah i think when i get back after this weekend i'll try getting ahold of some peeps and seeing if we can get this local scene going again.

    Malcolm - yeah that sounds great to me. if we can get the locals started i'd be happy to show what i know for ST in general and the character Vega :)

    if anyone is bored this weekend, tune into to watch the old school tourney they are hosting in Cincinnati. i will be there along with Ghettoontherise Dave. i don't know the exact schedule but if we have any ST heads the ST event is supposed to start at 12 noon on Saturday. it's a ratio tourney so i don't know what team i'll use quite yet but i'm sure i'll figure out something.

    Hello everybody. Just joined the site cause I met someone last week that posts here and told me to join up. I only play Street Fighter 4, but would love to play some other games. So let me know wherever and whenever you guys get together.
  • cheezface immortalcheezface immortal unbeatlievable Joined: Posts: 1,082
    MrPeanut - i'm sure that was me. do you work at the Acura dealership? i drive the white Kia Soul :) i'm about to reach out to some people to see if we can get the local scene re-started again. i'll post up here when i can get some answers.


    any ST fans in the house? no? of course not :( but if anyone wants to get nostalgic and watch some, here is the almost 5 hour long archive of the tourney from Cincy yesterday. it was a ratio tourney where characters were assigned point values. you could have a minimum of 2 characters and a maximum of 4. also the character values could not surpass 7 points. i had a team of S. Cammy (.5 points), S. Chun Li (2.5 points), and Vega (4 points).

    here is the archive...


    and my matches cuz they are the best...
    1:43:00 vs. Klimax
    2:02:30 vs. MiguelS
    2:59:00 vs. Mad Possum
    3:38:00 vs. Chris Gamble (no, this is not the Chris G you're thinking of)
    4:01:00 vs. MiguelS (the salty run back)
    4:22:00 vs. RoyBisel

    Anybody interested in buying an Xbox or PS3 TE stick? I have three sticks (2 Xboxes and 1 PS3), and since I just sold my PS3 I'm up for selling the stick, and I don't really need two 360 sticks anymore. The 360 one is the original black and red SF4 TE stick, and the PS3 one is the black Super Street Fighter 2 TE Round 2 revision. They both come with octagon gates if you want them, or the original square gates.

    They're still pretty valuable on eBay and stuff apparently and both work just fine (TE sticks are tanks!), so I'm thinking maybe $65 for the 360 and $75 for the PS3 stick. Let me know and I can bring them to a local sometime soon!

    oh yeah, it seems they replaced those with a big long youtube video instead. lol! hang on i'll find it. i'm looking thru the Evo brackets right now. if i was good enough at SF4 to beat just two opponents, i would be fortunate enough to face the mighty GamerBee in the third round ;) how lucky for him i'm not good enough. lmao!

    1:32:30 vs. MiguelS ($%@! ... Q-Bert cursing coming from me after this one)
    2:29:00 vs. Mad Possum (even when mad, possums are fairly harmless... possums and Honda's. hahaha)
    3:08:00 vs. Chris Gamble (not THAT Chris G)
    3:31:00 vs. MiguelS (the salty run back, here hold these jumping strongs!!! lmao!)
    3:52:00 vs. RoyBisel (my arch nemesis Frank)

Tim i'm geeking out and cracking up hardcore right now! you'll see what i mean. omg Ghaleon's lack of belief and his commentary, i'm laughing so hard i'm crying right now ...

    Took a long time to watch all that brent. Nice job. Hugo is coming.
    gief.i.tis (gef-i tis)
    n.
    The abnormal fear of Zangief in any fighting game in which he appears as a combatant(ex. SF2, SF2CE, SF2T, SSF2T, SF:The Movie, SFEX1,2,3, Pocket Fighter, SFA2, SFA3, SFA3U, X-Men Vs. SF, MSH Vs. SF, MVC, MVC2, CVS, CVS2, SVC:MOTM, Capcom fighting evolution, SVC2).

    Known causes included repeated exposure to the SPD and RBG, or the super variants thereof. Consistant domination by Zangief in any game named, or just REALLY BAD ASS WHOOPINS FROM BOOKER Z.

    Known symptons include night sweats accompanied by night terrors of the Russian Death Merchant. Involuntary shakes everytime game with Zangief is played, general uneasiness anytime The Motherland is mentioned, and an very distinct fear of Vodka.

    Known cure: Absolutately none!

    Brent: I was laughing pretty hard as well. Ghaleon's commentary is what really makes it so funny. Later on I really liked the comment, "Maybe MiguelS was sick of playing. Maybe it was just too much ST" LOL, LOL Chris is so funny.

    That Cammy made me think of the Doomsday I play online. I'm jumping all over the place and people hate it. One guy last night said, "Just wait, I've got this trash" I go on to beat him 3 - 0 with each time having a lower health bar because I was in Survivor mode. lol He wasn't very happy that his 40% combos couldn't do the trick lol

    Also, I really liked the ratio tournament. I'm still a little confused on how it works but it was neat to watch. I hope to see it more.

    Tim - yeah that commentary was entertaining for sure. hey i wanted to ask you something. so just yesterday 7/19 we started a facebook group for the Fort Wayne area FGC. it is meant to be a central place to help everyone keep track of locals when we have them, and gauge interest in tournaments. we did this also because not a lot of stuff goes on here anymore, sadly. i still check here every few days to look for new folks and it works well. but anyway, not sure if you want an invite to the facebook group or not. just throwing it out there and i'll let you decide. it's called "Fort Wayne Fighting Game Community"

    to anyone else reading this that has facebook, please join that page, Fort Wayne Fighting Game Community. it will save me from having to do a lot of running around all the time to individually contact everyone so often.

    i know we have the facebook page for our group, but anybody wanna help me keep this thread alive? it's awfully lonely here alone. remember this thread is still a great way for us to attract new players and it's how many of you first joined in to start playing with us! :)

    i don't think anyone reads this anymore. i barely even do. nothing new going on with me really. and i haven't touched fighting games in awhile. no one to play locally and i can't hit many tourneys anymore due to my work schedule. HOWEVER that will change for a brief time coming up soon. i'm hitting the ST TOL2 qualifier in Cincy on 4/26, then Godlike Saturday in Indy on 5/3, and i think i'm headed to UFGTX in Chicago on Memorial Day weekend

    looool Brandon that is a fair question. do we still do that here in FW? outside of the Smash players, no. do some of us that enjoy non-Smash games still want to? yes. i still travel to a couple tournaments. you are welcome to join along, just gotta keep in touch. best to reach me on my cell or on facebook.
