    I'm new (finally signed up here). A quick hello to all.

    I've always lived in Brampton. Fell in love with street fighter in grade 6 while studying taekwondo and martial arts. According to family and friends I'm obsessed with street fighter, but I see there are others like me. I've amassed quite a collection of SF-related material. I started playing heavily when I got my PSone (bro-in-law introduced me to SFEX and I learned how to do a hadouken). I don't have a lot of arcade experience, but I do owe much of my arcade play to SF (after destroying friends I craved more human competition).

    K well, that's enough of my life story. See you guys later.
    You asked for it, KIKOSHO!

    I've been on here a while, but i've kept relatively quiet. I currently play sf4/hd remix (360) and i'm looking for ppl to play against and form/join a crew for tournaments. If you live in the Markham/Scarborough area, then please respond to this and PM me.

    My tag on XBL is C 3. I don't have a 360 yet, so u may see me with 2 or 3 different ranking points or stuff like that haha I'm a Balrog/Sagat player, and I accept all challenges (especially pros). Take care and thanks for making this Nagata.

    Not really new to the site. Used to post with my old account 'the crow', but didn't play that much. Tried playing mvc2, sucked at that. Joined one or two tournaments and was knocked off easily the first match. Now I'm trying to learn 3s and hopefully SF4. It's been a while, but I'm starting to go more and more to Playscape again. Usually watching a friend of mine finish House of the dead 4. Thinking of maybe going to that richmond hill arcade one day, but I'm not really sure how to get there yet. I live around Yonge and Steeles. Currently working towards getting a ps3.

    Hi,

    Name's Mike, I live in Mississauga. Normally I'm an FPS player (old skool Q2/Q3:RA Player, UT1, CS and CSS, then moved on to console shooters, Halo2, Gears of War, CoD4 etc) I used to play both PC FPS and Console FPS competitively, mainly in Q3, UT1, CS and Gears (HEAT.NET/MPlayer Ladders,CAL,Proving Grounds,Gamebattles), I stopped playing shooters on the console cuz Gears 2 sucked majorly. I've always been an extremely casual fighting game player.. I just started getting really in to it when Soul Calibur 4 came out last year and I've been playing that since it came out, then I decided to give SF4 a shot cuz I've always liked the SF series.

    Yeah.. that's me pretty much.. gaming wise anyways.

    Been here for a month, really didn't notice this section of the forums (because I fail -.-) but have lurked a lot, posted a bit since I've joined.

    Name's Singh (last name), used to play SFII when I was a lot younger (played a bit of 3s, but not much), now getting into SFIV on X360 however. I'm mostly a sports gamer, though I do play Halo with family. Outside of XBL, I do run WoW, however I have been playing a lot of SFIV since I got it.

    I live in Pickering and atm I am going to University of Toronto at Scarborough. Haven't been to any of the GTA area arcades, but would like to go to one in the near future when I get time.

    As for SFIV, I'm somewhat of a novice, I know the mechanics and some of the combos, but my execution is poor atm with the 360 controller (but am getting a SE soon). I'm always reading, and looking to improve, learning from my errors in the process. Don't mind losing (see my Halo record :P), and would love to learn from those who are more experienced than myself.

    On XBL my tag is Singhs31, add me and lemme know you're from SRK and hopefully get some matches in. Getting tips and advice from SRK members would be awesome.

    Ryu right now is my main, I'll probably working on improving with Cammy and Sagat as well.
    Even the weakest have hope of power, because eventually the strongest sleep.

    Hi guys,

    Been lurking here for a while (especially custom stick threads). I live in moncton, NB and can't seem to find anyone around here to play fighting games more seriously.

    Hoping to be fighting some of you soon.

    Thanks,

    Hello all,

    I just signed up to the site, found this site by accident. Anyways I play SF4 and I think I'm pretty good, never played against outsiders, only my 2 brothers. I've also never played any SF in the arcades so using the Fight Sticks would be foreign to me.

    Anyways, I'm looking to improve my game and I think I'm good, but looking to you put things into perspective for me. I would love to play anyone of any skill level so add me to your PSN friends list, I'm Bloodhoound. Oh yea, located in Brampton, but work downtown Toronto.

    Will join the Facebook when I get home, it's blocked here at work :wonder:

    Seeing the threads on the Facebook group about the York U arcade makes me die a little inside :sad:. Though a few days ago I met this wicked guy named Alex in the Student Centre, we played Hyper Fighting on the SNES set up there, and he tells me that there's a (currently inactive) fighting game club there that used to pull 15 people a week. I wouldn't be surprised if he posts here, actually. It's Osman, remember? :lol:

    Anyway, I've been lurking SRK for a while, decided to get active with the community after the release of ST: HD Remix, though I pretty much exclusively play SF4 these days. I'm down for meeting more players from the community, everyone I've talked to at Gety was so approachable, welcoming and knowledgeable. I live about 5 - 10 minutes away from Gety, so if anyone wants to set up friendlies, I can be there whenever. I've been meaning to learn Guilty Gear (whichever iteration people play the most, probably AC?), it seems like such a wicked game, but it's probably a difficult game to learn on your own. Any AC players out there?

    Edit: I want to learn either AC or Marvel, I forgot how much Marvel impresses me, even though I have no idea what's going on, haha.

    I've lurked around SRK for the most of last year and decided to join up in early December of 2008 in light of the release of Street Fighter HD and SFIV not long after (And because I needed some HRAP modding tips). Haven't really tried playing Street Fighter (Any) competitively up until recently, and when it came to the finer details of Street Fighter, I found that forums like GameFAQs really didn't quite cut it anymore so I frequent SRK a lot more now.

    Fighting-game wise, I play some really casual Smash Brothers Brawl but mostly Street Fighter HD and Street Fighter IV, though I seriously suck ass compared to most. I actually hopped onto the Street Fighter bandwagon kind of late and the series in general never really grew on me up until recently. I may also be considering playing BlazBlue once the game comes out on consoles since my friend KC who goes to Lovegety a lot tells me tons of good things about it and I'm really digging the way it plays.

    So a big extended, "Hello all!" to fellow Canadian gamers out there, both local and all around Canada!

    Hey Phoenix, welcome! I think you're probably more familiar with this site than I am. Add me on PSN, I believe you're much better than you say you are =]
    Although I think beating me won't really prove much since I'm not very good.
    Either way, i'd love to get in a couple matches with your sagat, or anyone else you may want to use.


    edit: if anyone else want's to play just add me with the msg saying srk, i'll take all the practice i can get

    Hey everyone, I'm new here and I'm not really sure where to post this so I figured the new player thread couldn't hurt. I'll introduce myself and say I'm new to the fighting genre, played a lot of Starcraft competitively but I always to switch. Got PS3 for christmas and immediately busted into SF2HD and been playing since pretty much. I'm decent and love the game if anyone wants to play but I'm really interested if there is anyone in my city on this forum. I looked around and found nothing about Windsor so I'm asking here.

    Anyone from Windsor? Could I make a Windsor thread? I don't want to spam garbage threads ;p

    And thanks for the warm welcome OP.

    hey everyone, so I've been holding out on buying a console for the longest time, but I have to give in to my urge to play sf4. I'm wondering what console I should get though because Ive been watching a lot of youtube videos and it seems 360 has less lag, less loading and better quality players online.

    Hello all :-)

    Hello everybody,

    My name is Fareed and I live currently in Mississauga, ON. I would like to first congratulate the organizers in the previous PWNZ(if i spelled it right) tourni for the great effort and time they invested in organizing this. I personally had alot of fun and met some great people there.

    That tourni made me realize that I would love to play and get more experience with other players either in Mississauga or cities nearby. I humbly asking if there are any casuals going around, I would love to participate. They are also more than welcome to come to my house, and if they are coming from a far city, they are welcome to crash at my house as well.

    I unfortunately don't own a console at home and if we having a casual at my house, I don't mind providing refreshment and even food.

    I am usually into SF4 and STHD, I have pretty much learned the game from Brett (psychochronic) and guys like (Jed and kevin). I am really really not into any drama, just getting experience and having fun.

    Appreciate your time guys and looking forward to playing with u guys,
    Fareed

    Haha for a second I thought it was a different Fareed. You make yourself sound like a complete noob to sf, my Sagat probably wouldn't be where he is now if I didn't play you lol. This is Tatenda btw.

    I'm Keith and I currently reside in Surrey, British Columbia.
    I just started playing SFIV, and am having some troubles learning how to use Chun-Li.
    Online I can win 8-10 matches in a row with Ryu, but with Chun-Li I tend to lose them all.

    Record with Ryu: 85%
    Record with Chun-Li: 30%

    Obviously, I must practice more with the lovely thunder thighs. Gotta stay loyal to her!

    But yeah, hi. : )

    Hey, my name's John, I live in Burlington. I'm pretty new here, only skimmed through the forums the last few months but I know this is the place to go if you want to get better.

    I've been playing fighters on and off pretty much my whole life, only got serious for one or two games and that wasn't 'tournament' serious, sort of just an 'among friends' seriousness.

    Now that SF4 is out though I'd like to get better, maybe go to some tournaments. I've been playing it since release, but I'm not all that good. I would also like to get better at other fighters, but just somewhat casually.

    And I guess that's it, I could say some other stuff I guess but I'll leave it for now.

    Oh, and my XBL GT is SC George

    I've been browsing these forums for a bit and this is my first post.

    Hello to all in the Canadian scene. I'm from Toronto and am looking for some good hearted sf4 competition. I've come to this site through C 3. He's been showing me a great deal and informs me that in Toronto we have a very strong tournament scene full of experienced players, so I'm looking forward to meeting a few and partaking in my first sf4 tournament.
    Some online matches would be great as well.

    Nice to be here.

    Hey guys, I just registered to the site but I've been lurking for quite sometime now. This seems like a great community and it seems like I could learn a lot from it.

    I'm getting tired of playing random people online and I'm hoping I can make some new friends here so we can play some matches together. Right now I have 3500ish BP (I know BP doesn?t mean much) and I main Sagat but I also play Gouken, Zangief and Ken pretty well too. I'm on XBL (Hasteo) and if anyone is up for some fun matches hit me up.
