For when we need it...

By the way, I'm in Regina now, and if any of you go to UoR... you should let me know. Or somethin'. And games should be had.

    Was gonna say that the "scene"is now on FB.

    Heard it was mostly a casual experience though and last time I looked into 1 of the gatherings it was BB and marvel so it doesn't seem as big on SF4 like the old community was.

    I don't even know what you mean by "casual experience"

    Losha, I go to UofR everyday except friday.

    We tend to still have game nights occasionally, when Norman's in town.

    When I talked to 1 of the dudes who organizes the event he told me they mainly just have a bunch of setups with people playing at random. No real effort to improve or organize shit beyond just casual matches. I also asked around about the casuals they run from time to time and the impression I got is that SF4 wasn't really a big deal and the effort was more towards smash and other games. I could be wrong and maybe things changed since then but given that everything I've ever said on these boards has been true Im willing to stand by my previous comments.

    I want to hold a SF4 and UMVC3 tourney in Regina, Sask but I don't know who lives in the area? Is anyone interested?
  • LoshaLosha Super fast! Joined: Posts: 593
    I'd be down. Probably. Would depend on the time and place and stuff, but in general I probably would be.

    But, you (might) have more luck asking on the FB page than on here. (the link is in batatgames post if you aren't already in it... and if you're not, I could ask for you/you should join it :p )

    But isn't batagames post for Saskatoon? I am hoping to find a community in Regina so I have people to play against to prepare for EVO.
  • LoshaLosha Super fast! Joined: Posts: 593
    You're totally right, and I didn't even notice that until you mentioned it now. Ahaha. My bad.

    As for us Reginians, I have no idea... as far as I know, there's more MK than SF or MvC, but I know for sure there are some awesome SF players around somewhere.

    Of course, there's also me, but I wouldn't consider myself too great (especially now that I don't have as much free time to play, plus no xbox gold. Haha)

    I play PS anyways but the game doesn't change regardless of platform. I was hoping we had some sort of FGC here.
  • badatgamesbadatgames Joined: Posts: 8
    Speaking of Saskatoon, was great to see everyone new at the last Gamers Club event at USask last month! There's gonna be another event on February 28th, games TBD but you can for sure expect SSFIV and some sort of Smash as well as some sort of Anime game. An event will be made on the Facebook Page sometime in the near future.
    Also, I'm roommates with the Video Game coordinator for Saskatoon Blitz, and it sounds like he wants to plan something for that. Last year there was an impromptu SF4 and Melee tournament and he wants to expand on that. Stay tuned.

    That's the thing about S'toon: The actual "serious" scene is all of maybe 15 people, and even then there isn't a single game that all of us play. We're probably Street Fighter-oriented, but anime games are really popular as well on a more casual level.

    Then again, this is coming from a guy who tries to be competitive at SF, KoF, BB, TTT2, and Smash all at once.
  • JohnPauliukJohnPauliuk Joined: Posts: 364
    I just play SF, Smash and UMVC3 competitively but hoping to also do BlazBlue because its in EVO this year.

    Would be cool if we could host an event at this comic expo in regina

    http://www.fanexporegina.com/

    One of the people involved with that said that they were interested in hosting a gaming event but they were working out the details.
  • JohnPauliukJohnPauliuk Joined: Posts: 364
    As long as either SF or UMVC3 was there I'd pay to play at it.

    Is anyone playing KI?

    EVO is just around the corner. I'm looking for any skilled Regina player who plays UMVC3 to train against.

    Shoot!

    Is anyone else going to Sask Blitz?
    I didn't realize there was a USF4 Tournament happening until now, and I'm already in Sask from Regina. Does anyone know if they'd be able to lend me their stick if I signed up? (though I assume I'll see some familiar faces I could ask, I figured this was a better place to start than last minute "YO CAN I USE YOUR STICK!?" action)

    Edit: To clarify, I mean lend the stick at the tournament, whenever I have a match to play. Not for the whole day (because I'm assuming if you're their, you're going to want your stick for yourself for the most part. And if our matches overlap, you can of course have it. XD )
    Nothing clever to say.
  • SCP_Mad_HatterSCP_Mad_Hatter Joined: Posts: 10
    Yo Losha, you left your earbuds at Blitz. I'll hold on to them in case you ever manage to get here to pick them up.
  • LoshaLosha Super fast! Joined: Posts: 593
    Oh dang, not mine. Maybe those are the earbuds I borrowed from JCreans [...sic XD ]. It's either that or it's the other pad players' (whose name I forget).

    If they're pink, the former, if not, probably the latter.

    I can't remember if his tourney entry name was his PSN name as well, but if it was I can try to message him through there when I get back to Regina (Unless someone else has a better way of getting a hold)
    Nothing clever to say.
  • SCP_Mad_HatterSCP_Mad_Hatter Joined: Posts: 10
    Ah. They're pink, so I guess they're JCreans'. I'll try and get them to him tomorrow if he shows up. Awesome to see you again though! It was a lot of fun.
  • LoshaLosha Super fast! Joined: Posts: 593
    Yup, was awesome being down again, too. Good times. Thanks for helping out with running everything, and you can pass my thanks on to Josh (I think) and whoever else was running things. Ahaha.

    Hey yo this place sure went nowhere but I come with some great news.

    A few guys in town are setting up a brand new scene!

    Well perhaps calling it a scene is a bit too far but there are 4 guys including myself. The other dude is jayson and the other 2 guys are brand new. I'm talking to some other people to see if we can get more in but if your interested and wanna get together plz let us know. It's been years since sask has had anything going so maybe it's about time we change that.

    Pretty sure he broke even, and why would it upset you if he didn't??

    Do you not enjoy tournaments?



  • skulltr0nskulltr0n Joined: Posts: 339
    I love tournaments.

    I don't love getting gouged to attend them.

    Good for Lap breaking even, he's taken a few L's in his day.

    I probably won't attend another of his tourneys until they're about the local players and not about the SUPER PROZ.

    Play these games to play them, not to be a fanboi.

    Canada Cup was always too much pro dick sucking to me anyway.
    I'M THE BEST!
  • SenninSRKSenninSRK The Forever One! Joined: Posts: 3,191
    It's always been about pro dick sucking....have you seen Lapchi chat up top players. If he could offer a few hours of his wife to them im sure he would assuming she was down for it.

    Anyways what's the news about the regina scene do you guys still play. It feels like the entire sask scene just went up in smoke 2 years ago like WTF why aren't we doing something to change that.

    Hey, does anyone in Saskatoon play Guilty Gear? I'll be in Saskatoon on Dec 16 and 17 if anyone wants to get some games of Xrd in with a decent player.
    I see in frames IRL
  • DarciusDarcius KILL IN THE SPIRIT WORLD Joined: Posts: 180
    Its been years since I saw you on Wingdreams. I've been playing my matches in person instead. If you've been diligently netplaying that #R eddie this whole time you are probably primed to claim a level above "decent" in Xrd, eh? The new zato is no slouch either. I don't yet know what my availability will be like right in the middle of the exam season. I'll get back to you later about meeting up for XRD.
    Don't think that I can be stopped.

    What definition of fighting game are you trying to use that makes guilty gear a fake one? L M A O
    What a sad sack you are, trying to salvage your own pride by deciding GG isn't a real fighting game. Stay bad

    C'mon we're talking about fighters that emphasize spacing and patience....not air dashing anime atlus nonsense.

    Real fighting games in other words.
  • DarciusDarcius KILL IN THE SPIRIT WORLD Joined: Posts: 180
    The reason you stick to a logical fallacy to explain your own dumb ass is because you would get wrecked if you played the games that the rest of Saskatoon does.
    You don't know shit about gg so you're just gonna come up with any bs answer for why you won't play it. You can say whatever you want, we know the real reason.

    SF>GG.

    Explain then what makes GG a good game.
