    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.

    SUP!

    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.

    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.

    This is my first day on Shoryu, but I've been checking out the forums since 2004. Been playing SF since 2001, on Sega. I figured it was time that I officially jumped into the scene.

    I'm definitely not a new player, but I am a new face. Hope I can get to know you all and come out to some events.

With SF4 out now, I'm down for some schooling, as I'm pretty scrubtastic at the moment. Reading, practicing, and playing as much as I can however..

    I just joined the GTASF group. Figured it would be an easier way to get to know people than here on the forums. Seriously though, if you're from St. Catharines (don't be shy) message me and we'll get some matches going asap.

    Maybe I could get some online matches going with some of you guys before me and Varleran make it down to POWNZ. It would probably be a good learning experience.

    Well yesterday at the tourney I was asked if I ever posted in any Canadian threads and I realized that besides 1 I think I didn't really post. So here I am:

    I found SRK accidently back in 2003ish when I lived in St Catharines still and was looking up stuff about good old Street Fighter. I never really registered because I was never into SFIII that much to be honest, the game felt quite odd to me so figured not like I need to ask any questions or anything since I don't really play the game THAT much. I consider myself a hardcore Street Fighter fan, I've been playing it since the Arcades back in 92 and have owned every single version of SF out there, yes even those lame 3D ones.

    Now I moved to Toronto, Woodbridge to be exact, and when I played SFIV at the Arcades it made me feel warm again so decided it was about time I registered since I knew I will be taking this game more seriously than SFIII. People were right last night, I don't post much and to be honest it's because of the whole 2009 users thing that goes on in these forums. Figured the less people see a 2009 join date next to my username the more peaceful time I'll have on the forums.

    I got to meet quite a few people last night at the tourney and I had one helluva time, it was honestly alot of fun. I got PSN so feel free to add me, and I will definitely be taking a part of SF events more often even though I'm not that good with my 2 new main characters. It's the best way to practice though so I'm all in.

    Sup I'm new to SRK and new to playing SFIV competitively.

    I started playing SFIV a couple of days after it came out for the PC (as I bought that version) so that would put me a little over 3 weeks of playing now.

    I live in Ontario, a little suburb called Unionville and am hoping to get into the scene ASAP.

    Quick question, when you guys are talking about Lovegetty, where at. AFAIK there's multiple lovegety stations, but I know for sure there's one nearby around Hwy 7 and Leslie in Commerce Gate.

    If so, I am so down.

    Hi everyone, just thought I would introduce myself. I would like to start playing SF4 and Blazblue with this community. I'm not exactly new to fighting games, I played Smash competitively for a couple of years, so I know how everything works tournament-wise and stuff. I've known about/been on Shoryuken a while ago, but since Smash was my main game, I neglected to make an account or read up on 2d fighters, but exposure to 2d fighters at a friend's house made me want to try them out.

    I'm from Mississauga, um...idk if I put that into my profile when I made it. My first SF4 tourney will most likely be the bar fights one ; ) Hope to meet you guys all there
