    Hey which games are happening on Thursdays now a days?

    Depends when you show, but you can bank on SFIV, Marvel, and Tekken, plus more Guilty Gear than ever. ST, Persona, SC5 and KOFXIII appeared briefly last night, and people have been quick to boot up Yatagarasu, Skullgirls, or (in my case) both of the KOF UM's lately.

    I ordered this pad from play-asia. With the dollar's crappy exchange rate and shipping it came to over $110. For a fucking pad. But at least I now have something for PS4 with the 6-button layout to use for SF5. :#

    Sounds good. I may pop by once in a while. I was craving a fighting game earlier this week and I found out GGPO has its baby "Fightcade" and I've started playing 3rd strike again. Only people who really liked the game have stuck around so everyone in there is a killer...seriously.

    I don't think Amazon accepts PayPal and I don't have a credit card. I could have bought an Amazon gift card though I guess. Thanks. I actually do remember seeing that, or maybe it was the regular Amazon.com site, but not having a credit card sucks.

    The Silver Snail is closing:

    I might not come to Algonquin tonight.

    EDIT

    The FedEx employee charged me with another $22.66, bringing the total for the pad to around $134. But, it came pretty quickly, only taking about 5 days.

    Just wondering if anyone is going to the Circus

    I think clowns have a bad rap. I like clowns.

    Hey, I used to live in Newfoundland so I know the Halifax boys pretty well. I even flew down for High Tide one year.

    We play every Thursday at Algonquin College and you can hop on our facebook group too: https://facebook.com/groups/677223472399931/

    This Tuesday 'Tis Time To Take The Tekken Tag Tournament Two Tournament?

    I said that because I saw a poster that said on September 22nd there will be a tournament at the usual place at Algonquin. Is this true? Maybe I was looking at a poster that was a year old and it was last year?

    If I bring my XB360 with USF4 will I need to pay fees? I also have a BenQ monitor that is pretty good when it comes to lag but not perfect but I don't feel like taking it on the bus with me, if that is even possible. Will need a ride from my lowertown apartment if I do bring both the XB360 and the monitor AND of course my stick(s) that I will need.

    I have a new phone number: (613) 292-0427. If you can give me a ride on Saturday you can score another monitor for the tournament! I also have a PS4 with USF4 on it.

    My e-mail as well is karateskills@yahoo.ca

    Who is going to Canada Cup?

    I know I'm going to Canada Cup, I just need to find a way there and back.

    You won't have to pay the venue fee ($5) if you bring your xbox with ultra. However, you still have to pay $5 for the pot.
    I suggest bringing only the console.
