    Whenever you guys run a tourney, if I can make it, I may be able to supply a tv, DC, ps > dc converter, and a DC Agetec stick (maybe two).


    Looks like visiting family in Sac won't be so boring anymore. :D

    Heck yeah man, if you can make it down that'd be kewl. Would appreciate that boosted support man. That sounds real fucking good right now. Lets hope you can make it ^_______^

    is hella down for some A3. It would be nice to get some matches in that weren't me trying to play GGPO on a keyboard.

    I can be ghetto and bring a PC monitor and a VGA converter. I've got a DC and some PS2 converters, a PS2, and an extra copy of Alpha Anthology for PS2. Also VF4, which nobody plays.

    My Agetec broke on the way to Evo, so I have no sticks, other than the Saturn one.

    Lol, that'd be kewl. I don't care if it's ghetto so long as it works and doesn't cause any kind of screen lag lol. I appreciate the help if you can make it down. =)

    depending on if i can make it i have a dc and one of the old dc green arcade sticks i can bring and maybe a ps2 which is modded but i have not used it for a long while so im not sure if it still works.

    Good shit man, the more stuff we got to work with, the better time everyone will have and something is guaranteed to work out. I do encourage all to come because i'm going to make this shit big and announce it everywhere as soon as i get a date.

    Also, one thing that was brought to my attention recently was the location which i'll post up here and on the first post. Great Escape Games 1250 Howe Avenue, Suite 3A, Sacramento, California 95825. They also have a number you can reach them at (not sure about their business hours but hell they got a website as well) 916-927-0810. www.greatescapegames.com
    In the Sacramento area?

    I've got no problem bringing my TVs if someone isn't available to bring theirs come tourney night.

    I've got the 14 inch, and my brother has a 15 inch I can probably borrow.

    I've got a spare ps2 or ps3 I can bring as well.

    Everything sounds good, but somebody make a decision on what we're playing so I can start re-learning whatever it is. :bgrin:

    Oh yeah, I may also be able to fix joysticks that are broken. Just re-soldering issues mostly, nothing too complicated.
    But I'll take a look at them regardless, see if I can do anything to repair them.

    So bring those broken sticks also. I'll fix 'em free of charge. Tips are welcome. :D

  • RaveRave Shabasho Joined: Posts: 151
    Oh yeah, one other thing. Are we just transplanting the current NorCal fighter scene here, or are we trying to attract new players as well?

    If we're trying to attract new players, we might want to start off with a game without a steep learning curve, or a game with a lot of variation to keep them interested.

    I know that Great Escape Games used to run UFS, which is the CCG version of Street Fighter, KOF, and Soul Calibur for those who don't know. There was a shitload of people that signed up for those tourneys, so I think interest might be pretty high for our tourneys as well.

    Well I want to have a good impression on the store owner when and if he lets us throw tourneys and host gatherings as welll so i would say for now we need to stick with the games that we know will attract Nor cal players and that would be.

    Cvs2 ps2
    Mvc2 DC
    3s ps2
    GGXX AC Ps2
    Super Turbo DC


    now if everything works out the first time then sure in the future we could try some new stuff but we wont people to attend knowing that we are playing these kinds of games that are already big in the scene.

    Line up sounds good Ram, can't wait to see what the owner says. I guess this leaves alpha 3 outta the loop but i still want people to attend because if you come early enough there is gonna be some casuals taking place most likely (i likes to get there early) if its possible and the place is gonna be crackin. Plus i need some guilty gear practice before the tourney so i don't get my ass whipped too bad. I should see if batman77 is gonna want to get in this. Hmmm......:wgrin:

    Guilty gear over alpha 3? Interesting.

    Guilty gear over alpha 3? Interesting.

    I made it pretty clear that as long as i run any kind of tourney there will always be a spot for guilty gear. That one was a given. But dun worry just cuz alpha 3 isn't in this tourney doesn't mean it won't be in the future.

    I'll be down at Great Escape thursday night.

    Assuming we get the ok, anyone down for casuals then?

    I was really never a part of the Norcal scene, so I don't know everyone's relative skill level, but I can at least keep you from falling asleep in anything but MVC2, ST, or Alpha 3.

    I can bring a stick and a small TV as well.

    I play that game pretty heavily and happen to be pretty decent at it. I still got a working copy for psx and now that i got a dreamcast i should be able to get a copy of it for that. If we can get some casuals of anything started early i'd be happy to take people on in some jojo's.

    Shit, still working on getting me a modded PS2, but i'd like a copy if you could spare it. And i got plenty of DVD's. I would love to see some HnK tournies in sacramento as well. I watched a few videos and i'm fiening for this game :smokin:

    ok so i just got back from Great Escape Games and i spoke to Jordan about the idea and everything is looking good right now but he told me that he would have to talk to the owner about it and also to check on a few other things but from the way our conversation went. I dont think we will have a problem guys. BUT CROSS YOUR FINGERS because this is NOT set in stone yet. He said he would get back to me via e-mail with in a week so all we can do now is wait......

    i could bring my xbox but it acts up all the time, i have to bear it because i play cvs2 online all the time, the only comp i can find around here. i think i have a tv. i dont know if anyone wants to play on an xbox or ps2s. depending on how long this thing goes on i might generate my own little fund for a ps2 so i can bring it reguarly. the fact that it might happen is exciting to me, maybe there is finally a scene out here

    Well i'm going to try to help the sacramento scene for as long as i possibly can. I'm glad Ram was able to help out a lot with finding such a good spot and he's had a lot of experience being host so this is really coming along nicely. Plus, there's good people in sacramento, i'm sure of it, but you can't find them all normally because there is no gathering or meeting place (arcade or w/e) for us all to play. Hopefully this Great Escape can be the start of something truly beautiful for sacramento. I've lived here all my life, so glad i could do something about this scene. :woot:

    Although he does have a point though. Perhaps me and abraham will run down when they have a smash bros tourney and see how the crowd is, that way we can kinda gauge how loud we can be in that place. But from what i observed when we went over the place did seem pretty chill so i dunno if 60+ people loud and swearing is a good idea on the first day. But if thats generally what goes on with the smash bros tournies, then hell that just makes things better for us. :woot:
