    If anyone found a beige tuque 2 Thursdays ago, please give it to me. It is mine. But to be honest, I think it fell out when I was walking in the hallways. I had put it in the sleeve of my jacket, and I suspect it fell through the hand hole.

    Amar called me and said he could not go this Thursday, so I did not go. I have lots of stuff to do anyways here.

    When do the USF4 ranbats start? I saw Kingsley and bankshotv2 working on the brackets, and bankshotv2 asked if I was entering and I said OK.

    I got the information about a new MKX pad from watching the Avoiding the Puddle podcast. It looks really cool!

    But as of now, there is nothing on the EB Games or PDP websites to buy or pre-order:

    https://www.ebgames.ca/SearchResult/QuickSearch?q=Mortal+Kombat+X

    http://www.pdp.com/s?defaultSearchTextValue=Search&searchKeywords=Mortal+Kombat&Action=submit

    If anyone sees a place that has MKX pads for sale or pre-order please post where! Thanks. I assume the pad will likely come out at the same time MKX does. Aris has gotten me excited for MKX! Who else is getting it? It seems there is still going to be a long wait for the colsole version of Tekken 7, so I need something to play, and MKX looks decent.

    I can't find imegabeast anywhere. Just add everyone in the Ottawa SF4 group.

    Forest, I think you just have a backlog of notifications; no one has posted there in 18 days.

    THERE IS NO GONQ Tonight! We got canned at the last minute because 22 Minutes booked the entire building.

    Bar Fights
    We will soon begin talks on whether it's possible for us to host games in The Observatory, which sells food and alcohol.
    We don't know yet if buying something is necessary, but, we're starting a poll just in case.
    Will you buy food/alcohol? http://strawpoll.me/3570244

    Update on Ranbats
    Our first league-format ranbat will be ending on Feb 19 and we're looking for some feedback.
    How do you like it so far? http://strawpoll.me/3570293
    Do people want to split the league into A and B divisions? http://strawpoll.me/3570332

    Rules if it were to happen:
    - We will use the results of this ranbat to determine placement
    - The top 6 players will enter A league while the rest enter the B league
    - At the end of each ranbat, #5 and #6 in the A league will swap places with #1 and #2 in the B league
    - At the end of each ranbat, #3 and #4 in both leagues will play each other to determine who enters the A league
    - This ranbat has 15 participants. We're expecting slightly more people for the next one.

    Here are the number of matches left in the ranbat (keep in mind that new participants may jump in):
    Youssef - 3 matches left
    Will - 4 matches
    Adam, Bruce - 6 matches
    Kevin, Patrick, Kingsley - 7 matches
    Moe, Yang, Nick - 8 matches
    Joey - 10 matches
    Julian - 11 matches
    HotToy, Axandre - 12 matches
    Andy - 14 matches
    Forrest - 15 matches

    Hit this link to the spreadsheet for more details http://waa.ai/4h1M

    Thanks guys for the feedback! AKA chime in with your 2 cents or I'll ask you in person.

    Yeah, as in today, though I guess by now it would be too short notice to get things rolling.

    Does anyone else notice that it is impossible to find Marvel comic books these days in corner stores or drugstores? I was in Chapters and I saw Simpsons comics and other cartoonish ones and of course the anime books but no new issues of X-Men or Spider-man. In the corner stores and drugstores they have gaming magazines and fashion magazines but not any comics at all.

    I know Disney bought Marvel recently...are they no longer selling comics? Or maybe I need to go to one of those nerdy stores that only sells comics on Bank St.?

    You could probably find them at Chapters. I'm not sure on Coles, but I know a few Chapters' I've been to have had whole sections for comics.

    There's a comic book store somewhat close to gonq off of baseline and clyde. Even an anime store right next to it.

    Yo, nice. I've been meaning to see if I can pick up Roberta's Blood Trail somewhere, but been too lazy to look.

    And on that Battle Royale thing, the poster totally got me all confused at first and had me thinking it was at Carleton or U of O randomly, lol. I can totally bring a setup with Xrd (minus Leo)/TTT2/Ultimax/BBCP if needed.

    I'm finally learning how to Mahvel...for the 20th time, haha. But this time I mean it! Still trying to find characters I like though. Storm on point of course, but besides Storm I donno.

    Thanks for the tips on comic books.

    I kept trying and giving up on Marvel after realizing there wasn't a fitting 3rd character to throw in with X-23/C.Viper to get a "Team White Girls" thing going (since Trish felt kinda meh, and I wasn't planning on using Phoenix or Morrigan) and not wanting to put the effort in to find a decent X-23 team since Nova/Doom/X-23 seems a bit limited.

    We have both rooms this week. As usual, please bring monitors, controllers, and setups.

    We'll have more stations for Street Fighter than usual (without infringing on other games) to accomodate ranking battles. A big thank you to Joey, Andy, Justin, and Kingsley for bringing their setups.
