The IDAHO Thread

Looking for more players in Idaho. I know we have communities in Boise and Burley, but I was curious that maybe the SFIV surge brought in some new SRK members from Idaho.

    Theres a fighting game community in Boise?!
    damn.
    I lived there for a couple months in the end of 06, and I never found a 3rd Strike machine to save my life!
    Besides console, where is this community hiding in Boise?

    I'm down for playing people in the area and a little out of the area. A 3 hour drive is about as far as I would drive on a monthly basis for comp but I could drive up to 5 hours for a big event if someone would be willing to off a floor to crash on.

    I think it's tight that there's even that many of you out in the boonies like that. How'd all you guys find this thread, do all you idaho-ites just lurk the forums until a topic like this comes along? I'm not trying to hate, I think it's cool.. just curious.

    You should do what I did bro. Go to the search and type in your town. It will find some of the people who list their real loc. It's good to see others making a local scene. Best of luck acllaim!!!

    Yeah....I actually wait until a random topic pops up then I make a post.

    I do post in other areas where the GG threads are at, and arcade stick modding pages. Every now and then I do check the northwest forums to see if theres anything going on.

    Players in Boise? I didn't think it would happen for a bit. What games and characters are you guys playing? Lately I only play SF4 and I use Vega, Ken and about 6 other characters. Also, I play on a stick on the PS3

    Nah they play on PS3 so they can dodge me :encore: What is up Mercy we had some good games going on live. I am currently trying to learn how to take my Pad game to Stick atm and hopefully expand my game. On pad i will play Vega on stick i am currently playing Balrog (sellout i know). I can really play just about any character thought expect gen and c.viper.

    Edit: Mechanica I wouldn't call Boise the Boonies lol. For arcades maybe, but then thats a lot of places.

    I am so stoked from the great responses and the excitement from you guys. Practice up and get ready for Sunday, June 21st at my place. Hopefully everyone can make it down. Request it off from work and mark it in your calendar cause it's goin down. We will eat, drink and game all day and I will try to put some prizes together for whatever tourneys we run. Street Fighter 4 will be the focus but we will also try to play whatever everybody wants to. Open to suggestions.

    Come to compete but most of all come to have a good time with some good people.

    I did not realize the gathering was on Fathers Day. Not sure if I can make it now but if I show it will most likely be later in the day.

    Does anyone else find it odd that we have so many Vega players here?

    If anyone would like to get some games in before the gathering hit me up. I have a couple sticks for the PS3. Later in the night works best.

    Yes, there is a lot of vega players.

    I'll play against any one, whenever. but it just takes me a while to finally get out there and play. I'm a casual player but at least I am good. So if you want decent competition, I'm always down for a few matches. And I play on my Virtua Fighter: High Grade stick. PS3.

    Woops!

    In light of the revelation that the 21st is father's day lets go ahead and push it to the 28th. To recap: All of Boise will hopefully come together on Sun, June 28th for a tournament and introductions. I will let you know more details as they come but i want to make sure the 28th is a good date first so let me know.

    It would be nice to see the other parts of the Northwest level up Mike. My only concern is how hungry this new blood is. Takes a long time to go from scrub to competent tournament player, time will tell.

    All it takes is some patience and being able to take criticism. We'll see how things roll out in the next few months. Hopefully it isn't a let down. Can't become the best player out there over night. So we'll see how a night of gaming works out, and from that point on, if they aren't all that great, there will be lot of practice, practice, and more practice. Depending on how Ian says, "hungry this new blood is".

    Work and friends kills my practice :tdown: lol. My Rog and Vega seem to be coming around on the stick though. I wouldn't say new blood been playing street fighter since 94' new to SRK though for sure.

    Everything looks good for the 28th, so let me know asap if you guys can't make it and i will make other arrangements. I am gonna pm my phone number to a few of you so you can text me if you wanna practice up before the 28th. My schedule is never set in stone so if you guys got time I can probably make some time.

    I hope you all are not disappointed by may lack of skill. My only goal is to get everyone together and have a good time while getting better. I would like to see a nice community blossom in Boise.

    When I use statements like new blood I am not referring to players new to SF but new to high level SF.

    The 28th looks good on my end.

    Personally I'm not too interested in people's level of skill but their commitment to getting better. I have my hopes set to the idea of a scene/community growing in Boise as well. Last time I remember Boise having somewhat of a scene was during the MvC2 days at Gameworld.

    I won't be able to make the 21st since I'll be at work.

    Also, those videos you posted up aren't working properly it seems, or it could be my side thats acting up. the sound comes in smooth, but video is really really slow and choppy and doesn't sync up.

    It's cool to have a working computer to use again.

    Gaming at your place was chill Mat. Sagat double roundhouse, ultra combos hurt. Looking forward to throwing down again.

    Random SF4 scene starting to come together in Boise is too good.

    I'm not sure if it's Ramon or Eyedeekay or whatever that plays him a little, but we have a variety of characters so it's pretty well rounded
