    GGs guys in SNK, GGs Monty, Jeremy, and Thomas in KoF. Feels good to Sans-Culotte and lose to Mr. Got Bodied once again.

    Great turnout last night. Had 3 SF4 setups going. Nice rotation on KoF. Shoutouts to homo-genius. There are even more funny ass goal videos in that soccer game Jason.

    has nothing to do with the venue, its more that

    1. most players here dont have a very competitive attitude, its more laid back/casual
    2. no one is running events that players wanna go to

    i was thinking about trying to start running stuff in the future but im not really into running events these days and also dont have accessible transportation. that said im willing to help out if one of these youngins can get some pull with the players around here. im sure guys like travis, clint, or todd would tell you the same thing but i cant speak for them.

    I was thinking sometime early next year trying to reach out to a number of people (you, clint, todd, jeremy off the top of my head) and work together to form a weekend 1 day event (potentially recurring) after getting everyone's opinions and input on the best way to approach it with the current state of columbus fgc in mind

    Hey there for those not on Facebook, I'm planning to have a small get-together at my place Friday for fighters / board games around 8. I have spots for two setups (thinking KOF and Marvel) but feel free to bring a TV and setup of your own for other things. I know I'd also like to play some Tekken, and P4 would work too. Let me know if you're interested - my place isn't super-large so I'll probably have to cut off at around 10 people.

    Is Donatos happening this week? I'm finally settling in after my move from Cincy. My new job has kept me too busy to do anything, so this is the first week when I have weeknights free. I really want to play some games.

    planning to have a small get-together at my place Friday

    If there's no Donatos this week count me in, but I have to do Christmas shopping either tonight or Friday night so...

    Is anybody going to Christmas Combat on Saturday that has an extra spot in their car? I really don't want to have to drive by myself! ...but I will! ...but I don't want to... I am more than willing to compensate for gas, trouble picking me up, etc. I hate driving.

    P.S. For those who haven't played me since I left, I haven't gotten any better at games since the last time I was at a Columbus gathering like 2 years ago...

    I've been thinking about going to one of the nights at Donato's since I live on campus now/will actually have a way to get there but I only play 3S. I play other shit too but I like to think I at least know what I'm doing in 3S. If I bring my own set up, will anyone else play? Maybe I can have some people over if it's cool with my roommates.

    "set up" as in a PS3 and no TV.

    I have a friend who's trying to learn/play TTT2 as well but apparently, "no one plays it there, I asked".

  • RyujinflameRyujinflame Bald Eagle, Amazing! Joined: Posts: 316
    TTT2: Not true, as I'm sure a number if other people would say. It changes per night but there are usually at least 3 people playing, and we've had around 10 on some nights.

    3S: If you bring it and announce it before game night, people will come out for it. I know a couple of the guys won't come out unless they know it's there.

    theres a couple players that are also relatively new to ttt2 (kyle/dulyanna, jeremy/athrex) that are there every week or close to it, so he would definitely have people to play. there are some higher level players that come around every few weeks usually but dont expect them to always be there (hamilton, dan (spearl), anthony (noize)). (you might never see anthony) ;7) kyle (thekiest) also plays, havent seen him in awhile tho.

    as for 3s no one really plays it but im sure brian (bqheath) would show up and play you

    Yeah, I usually never leave my house. :( lol... But in all seriousness, I haven't played TTT2 in about a month in a half, maybe more maybe less. My PS3 is acting up and chooses when to read blu-rays. I can always try to set up a time to come up to Donatos, but I can't do it weekly or anything.

    It's always something with me. D:

    Next time, weather permitting, come along and bring your friend to at least get an idea of how many people will be willing to play the same stuff as you. If there aren't a lot of people, try again another time since lots of people don't like to go out of their homes when it's shitty, cold, and Columbus side roads are ass.

    For those at Donato's last night: Someone left a book bag, but the manager there was able to keep it in her office. Be sure to claim it when you can!

    Hey guys. I was thinking about checking things out this week. Hopefully I don't have to work too late, but I'd like to stop by and play some AE and I saw someone mentioned 3S, which I'd be down for as well. I kind of don't play any other fighting games but those would be fun.

    Is there a cover charge?

    No fee, but you are encouraged to buy pizza to support the venue.

    Good games tonight at Donato's, but fuck OSU campus. Traffic made Lane Ave a parking lot on the way in. Just Play Games is apparently done for good, lights out, TVs gone. I eventually made it to Donato's, but the parking meter maxed out at 9:40pm, and at 9:46pm I got a $25 parking ticket. This is why people don't show up until 8pm, if at all.

    I don't normally get Wednesdays off of work, so I don't have much of a say in this, but I think we really need a new serious fighting game meetup. One that brings together players from the current meetup, this thread, and #srk-ohio. We had better attendance when the Donato's meetup was moved to Tuesday for a week. As for me, I'm also open Mondays and Thursdays, and I want to play more VF5. Of course, the Columbus fighting game community is so divided and unmotivated that nothing will come of this post. I still read this thread, you know!

    Also, holy hell, what happened to the forums? If I turn Adblock off, there's a fucking autoplay video ad on top of the page. The new URL to the latest post is this:

    I posted that 2 months ago? Damn. 
    I have this issue where I post shit and forget I posted it 2 hours later.

    I'll be at the next game night, though. I'll try to bring my friend Jason. I won't be bringing a set-up, just my stick.
    Main/only game is 3S (Hopefully someone there will have it and be willing to play it) but I've always wanted to expand my skills and knowledge in GG/VF/VS and probably some other shit no one cares about anymore. I'll be down to learn Marvel too.

    I have 3S on my 360, but can't guarantee when it'll be up as I leave my setup open for KOF XIII and Marvel first. But if things are looking slow in those games, or I go off to another setup, you're welcome to play it on that one.

    This is also assuming I'm good enough to show for Wednesday. A little under the weather at the moment.

    Sounds good to me.
    I can wait all day/night to play 3S with someone, I'm just happy to have the opportunity.

    Hi everyone, I'm going to be heading over to Donatos sometime around five thirty today. If you spot a random black guy with huge headphones on his cranium that would be me.

    I'll be bringing my xbox and stick, I'm hoping to run some games of AE, Persona and 3s if possible.

    I'll be sure to bring my PS3 next time. I've been putting in some WORK in KoF XIII but I'm still pretty shit tier. I picked up Billy though so I finally have a decent team.

    Also holy shit I really wish someone had recorded Hitstun on SFXT with that Gief. So many SPDs.

    Hey

    I'm over in Chicago, but I've been offered a position in the graduate program at Ohio University. Columbus looks like the closest major scene, so I thought I pop by with a few questions. What games are popular in Columbus? I mostly play AE and KoF, but I've been trying to pickup Tekken and Persona. Is there a group from Athens that heads over for events? Thanks for the info.

    Hey there Foggy. As of late I'd say you can count on KoF, Marvel, AE, and Melee / Brawl, with Tekken, Persona, and some anime fighters next depending on who shows up. We bring all of our own setups for the sake of the fight nights, so you're definitely encouraged to bring your own, and it usually ensures you get to play your games.

    There are a couple of players at OU, but I would say that usually stays in Athens and they don't come up this way as often.

    If you've got a free Wednesday though, definitely stop by Donatos and we'll see you there.

    EDIT: Also before I forget, did anyone take an extra PS3 controller cable last night? Daniel couldn't find his after we left.

    EDIT2: Daniel, Freddy mentioned he might've picked it up, so I'd check with him next week or when you can.

    Echoing Dandy's post on the Facebook group:
    Just want to remind everyone that the game night venue is free. This is quite the convenience -- so much of a convenience that one might be encouraged to show common courtesy, such as not leaving trash behind.

    This got really bad last night. This only applies to cool prizes a select group of people but at the very least take care of the area around you setup-wise and trash-wise before you leave. Donatos is offering the space to us every Wednesday, so please show some respect for the place. I also realize not every may realize the trash doesn't get cleaned up on its own, so be sure to remind people if they're not taking care of their business.

    Heads up from Travis: Since a group already reserved the Donatos basement for Wednesday, this week's fight night is tomorrow instead. Repeat, Tuesday, not Wednesday, and just for this week as far as we know. See everyone tomorrow!

    Hey guys. You can generally count on someone playing UMvC3 at game nights, AE depends on who brings a setup, and GG and Skullgirls have seen more play as of late. I can't guarantee TTT2 will always be there, but we've got 2-3 regulars willing to play it if there's a setup. TVs are appreciated, as are power strips. Only so many wall outlets to work with!

    Our regular meet up spot is Donatos Pizza on North High Street, at North High Street and Frambes. Action can start as early as 6 but most people are there around 7, ends right at midnight.

    Also if you're on Facebook, check out the Columbus Fighting Games FB group. That's where most of the action is these days.

    Hope to see you soon!

    Hey, is there any chance someone could host Injustice on the off days aside from Weds? I still don't own a console, but watching yesterday's matches on EVO makes me want to dick around with Nightwing more. Also is anyone here interested in the new Jojo's coming out next month? I know it's an import, but I'll be bringing it once I get it next month if there's a free TV to use at Donatos.
