    Hi. So, is there going to be a meet up at Algonquin on Thursday? I'm back in town and wondering if a lot of others are back yet. :)
    I had a lot of good games with people I played last year and hopefully this coming year will bring a lot of great ones.

    I'd very much like to RECOMMENCE GONQENING but I'm locked out of the offices. It might not go over well, since they can't leave them unlocked towards the end of the night until everyone is back from holidays.

    I'm starting the New Year off poorly because I can't make it tomorrow. Maybe really late if people are still there.

    I admittedly have no intention of stepping outside period until this crazy -40 weather shit is behind us. I've got some gas money put aside for when it gets back down to sane temperatures though.

    Hey guys, I'm not really a part of the community at all but I do live in Ottawa. Does anybody here fix fight sticks? My Street Fighter 4 SE fight stick recently broke down and I'd like to get it fixed. I'll definitely pay. The issue with it is that my stick only responds to the "right" direction.

    You can order a new stick from Canadian Joysticks and do it yourself. It's reaaaaally easy (Very likely solderless, but I'm not sure what the SE looks like. I think you have to take an exacto-knife to some glue holding the old stick in place, and that's it). If you ever come to Gonq I should be able to do it for free. Drop by next Thursday, I'll try and remember to bring my spare JLF stick so I can test it (It's old, but works fine, IIRC).

    Really though. Grab a screw driver and open that sucker up. So long as it's unplugged and you remember where everything is connected, it's hard to break.

    I think a JLF is like $20, Sanwa pushbuttons are 3 bucks a pop. New circuit board is $40, but you get PS3 and 360 support. If the circuit board is toast in your stick, I have a super-junker 360 PCB or a PS3 PCB that I might be able to toss in...

    You should probably just open it up.. sometimes wires are loose. Also assuming it's a decent stick in the SE you can probably just get new microswitches..

    We're back in full today.

    Algonquin College Meetups
    e206b, Student Commons. Second floor above the Starbucks.
    5:10pm onwards.
    Bring your own controller.
    Maybe bring monitors if you want a guaranteed place to play (I couldn't bring my extra today, so we only have 4 + 2 CRTs).

    Capcomu, Animu, Waifu.

    Let's go do it.

    Except for anime and Tekken, and with BBCP that's since it's PS3 only, whereas with Tekken, I think they bring their own consoles.

    People going to want to play KOF tonight? I'm rusty and in need of a fix, plus I know some of you jumped on the holiday Steam sale.

    There's not usually many PS3's at Gonq. When the Tekken guys came out before break, they had to settle for an Xbox. We usually have a PS3 that sees some anime play, but even I usually prioritise bringing a 360 for Guilty Gear because we all have Xbox sticks.

    TOURNAMENT ANNOUNCEMENT:

    When: February 22nd, 2014 starting at Noon

    Where: Algonquin College

    Games: SSFIV 2012, UMVC3, Guilty Gear, BB Chronophantasma and any other games people want to run on the side

    I'll post more details soon including entry fees, payouts and other things. I'll be streaming the event and wouldn't mind some volunteers to help run brackets and commentate on matches for games in which you are knowledgeable. Post here and let me know.

    I'll make a facebook event sometime today hopefully for those who are into that kind of thing. I'll also be making a poster if people could help stick them around their respective schools or whatever.

    Sweet, definitely making it out for that for the BBCP tourney, and obviously if the Tekken guys want to run one, I'll be down for that. Also, the Smash Bros people might want to run their own side tournaments there if they're allowed. If they bring their own setups or whatnot (as they normally do) and potentially have someone helping with their brackets, would anybody running it have any problem with them coming? I'd have volunteered to try and commentate on some BB, but I admittedly kind of assumed Bruce might have (and I really don't mean to make it sound like I'm putting him on the spot).

    This ain't my first rodeo. ;)

    Thanks for the advice though. No one shows up on time that's why you make an early start time. That being said if you aren't registered when I generate the brackets there are no re-dos.

    More feedback is good. Generating more info right now.
