    Hey, I'll be moving to just outside Columbus this Saturday, never lived close to a bigger city. I'd just love to know if things are still going. I checked the facebook page but it just says closed. Let me know, I have a monitor/speakers that I could bring since I know those are typically in short supply.

    Things are still going strong.

    Good games to Jad and Ven in Bomberman and Tetris tonight. Pretty good matches for a fight night where I didn't play any fighting games. Next week, I want to use a TV in the Smash section to hook up my SNES. I'll be down for Panel de Pon (Tetris Attack,) Super Puyo Puyo 2, Super Tetris 2 & Bombliss, TMNT Tournament Fighters, Super Variable Geo, and whatever else you want me to bring out of my SNES collection. Of course, I don't get there until about 9 or 10 typically, but I stay until midnight.

    Edit: Also, Summer Games Done Quick starts this afternoon and runs until Tuesday morning. Josh the Funkdoc is running a few NES games on Friday afternoon starting at 1:20pm.

    Yea I'm watching Funkdoc now. He's one of my favorites because he does Castlevania.

    I will always play Puyo Puyo. Let's do it this week.

    Sorry, guys, I actually overslept game night. I'll bring the SNES next Tuesday. I should be able to be there most of the night Tuesday if I get moving in time.

    Edit: If I can pull it off, I'll be streaming this SNES live on my Twitch.tv stream, since Tuesdays are also my stream night.

    Edit 2: I'm ready, my SNES is ready, and my laptop streaming rig is ready. I'll be there all night in the Smash section streaming the SNES as long as the internet holds out.

    We're all too addicted to Salty Bet to post here. Just don't talk about it in #srk-ohio or Avi will probably ban you. I created a SRK thread for Salty Bet, so talk about it there:

    Here is your friendly reminder that next Donato's fight night is on Tuesday, September 3. I won't make it this time since I'm now double-booked every Tuesday as it is.

    I want to play more people on Divekick and SSF4 AE on Steam. For some late night matches, add me (hitstun) if you don't have me already.

    So is the "game night is on Tuesday the first week of the month" thing still a thing? I was just in there a couple minutes ago and there was no one there and the door to the basement was locked. Workers said we were on the schedule for tomorrow.

    Ok, so the Tue. night thing was apparently just for the summer. The announcement was apparently on Facebook. I don't have Facebook so I totally missed it.

    Just posting that here for those in the same boat as me.

    Well that's just great. Nobody told us that, or I would have come in Wednesday. Apparently that was posted on Facebook on Monday.

    Also, 16-Bit is awesome and I'm totally going there Monday night for ST. When I was there Wednesday, I set three high scores, but they've probably all been beaten by now.

    So word is that there is something going on at Donato's basement next Wednesday (and a bunch of other days) next week. So game night will be on Monday. I won't be able to be there but hopefully you all will. Also it seems people are hype for Pokemon X & Y so bring that too if you have it...

    Facebook is overrated. I only cross-post there with my blog because I have friends that only read Facebook and nothing else. It's way too easy to miss posts on Facebook, and there's no good way to get Facebook updates into other applications like Feedly.

    I work Monday nights now, so I can't make Mortal Mondays or next Monday at Donatos. Maybe next week we can do a Wednesday at 16-Bit? I want to score attack Time Crisis 2 with another good player.

    I believe I may be the only person left without Facebook but whatever. Last I knew, there is no game night on Wed. 25 2013, for obvious reasons.

    The week of New Years game night is moved to Thur 2nd 2014.

    Because nobody posted this on SRK, I should let you know that game night at Donatos is no longer on Wednesday nights because another group has booked Wednesdays. This week's fight night is tonight (Monday) and we still need to decide on a new night for fight night, likely Tuesdays.

    Decided to check over here for a FTG scene in the area since I've been feeling the fighting game itch again, and I'm pretty new around the area. Guess I'll pop in tonight!

    Thanks for posting here for those of us without Facebook. I thought we had it booked out in advance though, wouldn't the other group have to come in after our current block of nights was over?

    No problem. The CFG Facebook group is the only forum we use anymore, even with all its problems. It's the only way to reliably check if game night has been rescheduled. There's no game night next week because parties have already reserved the basement Monday through Wednesday. Game nights at Donatos will begin again on Tuesday nights starting February 18.

    Hey guys, I know the Facebook group is the place to be but . . .

    Any ppl serious about ssf4 in columbus. Meaning looking to improve, discuss thr game and build a focused offline community. From what I gather its more a side game for most.

    Anyone interested please throw me a pm. We can get in a few matches over xbl and I can show to donatos this 18th with a setup + near lagless monitor if there is interest.

  • TruedragonTruedragon 1,2,3 lightning attack Joined: Posts: 5
    So no real interest in sf4?

    I'm kinda surprised to still have nothing with the weekly gathering being tonight.

    Again, feel free to pm me if you see this and play sf4. I can definitely provide a setup for the donatos gatherings and spar on xbl.
  • IzusaIzusa Food porn enthusiast Joined: Posts: 3
    Uhhh, the best thing to do is to just show up regularly with a IV set up anyways.
    Either Fred or Tu usually brings their set up.

    As Hitstun said, the Columbus Scene posts almost exclusively on FB now.

    There haven't been a ton of SF4 setups recently, but if you bring one people will probably play. And if not now, when Ultra drops a lot of people will definitely be messing with it again

    I'd like to get in on some of this, but working 2nd shift largely rules things out. Haven't really had anyone to play fighters with regularly since moving up from Jackson in 07. Still haven't checked out 16 bit B&A, will do so while I'm off next week. I like most fighters other than MK, DoA, and VF. I wouldn't call myself really competitive at them, as I've mostly played SP and with a small group of friends from a small town (who I can trounce, but that's not really saying much). Been enjoying fighters since 91, I've missed having a group to play them with.

    Hi!

    Sorry to say, but nobody seems to use this thread anymore. Nobody even updated it to say Donatos game nights are on Tuesdays instead of Wednesdays now. The Columbus Fighting Games group on Facebook is where most of us post now, so I'd use that instead.

    Not that much of anyone even uses this thread anymore (even I finally got a Facebook account and use the group) but I wanted to cross-post a post I made over there.
    As Game Night gets bigger there are a couple unfortunate things I've noticed. I'm sure others have some observations as well.
    1) Some people aren't cleaning up after themselves. This has always been an issue, but with more and more people showing up the problem is compounding itself. It's not hard. If you just thrown away your plate, cup, or box when you're done with it there won't be garbage laying all over the place come midnight. It tends to be left to the same handful of people to clean up everything, every week.
    The same would apply to chairs and cords as well. We don't have to put the chairs up on the tables but too many times people leave with chairs strewn all over the place or arranged in semi circles around the end of a table. If everyone puts back the chair their sitting on at the end of the night or rolls up the power cord if they're the last one to use it then there'll hardly be any extra work required for clean up.

    2) People need to stop bringing in outside food. You'd think this would be without saying but over the last few months I've observed people bringing in donuts, pizza from home, bubble tea, falafel, soy milk, large bags of chips, an entire meal from a Chinese restaurant , 2 liter bottles of soda, and a block of cheese complete with container and cheese knife.
    We aren't being charged a venue fee to use Donatos' basement but they are, first and foremost, a restaurant. No restaurant wants outside food brought in and buying food from them is how we support the arrangement. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but hasn't CFG lost a venue in the past due to people bringing in outside food and drink?

    In any case, those are a couple things I've noticed and they seem to be getting worse.

    Wish I could join you guys. Having a 2nd shift job which kinda screws over driving on down. I live in mansfield (about a hour north of columbus) and there isn't ANYONE in this town that plays fighting games. Maybe if any events happen on the weekend I be able to hang out. Xbox live tag is DrkVector86.

    Where do you guys play Panel de Pon? Is that at Donatos, too? Also, has anyone checked out that place called the "anime arcade" near E. 5th and Summit (on the way to the 71)? It's pretty cool! They've got Taiko no Tatsujin there and you can bring whatever console games you want to play on their PS3s.
