    Naw I didn't say anything, games at Barcade Saturday starting at 3.

    Edit: Semi-good news, my contractor friend finally got around to giving me an estimate today and said he plans to start work in the next 2 weeks, so yay.

    Was it a good estimate? And any news on that license coming in soon? Really looking forward to seein the place in full swang.

    Also I just lost my friday/saturday hours AGAIN! So I may ride with Jon to Barcade, we'll see. Depends how I feel, I'm really pissed about this job thing right now.

    Kyle and anyone else who thinks driving to the barcade is a hassle, be proactive, car pool it up. You drove me and John last time, have one of us drive you. Meet people half way and car pool ala Phil or Jug. Saves everyone time and gas money. I shouldn't need to mention this, we need to start thinking ahead and make this a staple that can grow into something truly great. Real Talk, man up and plan ahead, i want ppl ridin in with each other 4 or 5 thick, should be easy.

    damn did I kill the mood? lol

    So yea, Me, Kyle, Ryan, Joe, Jug, Phil, John, Jon, Jeff, Tony and Des ALLL have cars. On average 10 players show to barcade. That requires a minimum of 3 cars. Someone willing to car pool (which should be everyone) just has to say: "Yo I am heading to game night around 5pm, who wants in? Hit me up so we can arrange when to meet at my place". Then go from there.

    That being said, I am going around 5pm tomorrow, who wants to come with me?

    I'm gonna want to head there at around 2:30 - 3:00. Once there, I'll probably step away from the barcade for a few hours, but I'll be back. Just warning ya.

    So far kyle wants to ride. Anybody else calling a spot?

    Not exactly suspenseful anymore. Now it's just annoying, capcom. Come on. Out with it already.

    soon enough they will announce it. not like we don't already know. 95% of that rumor list was true so i highly doubt there's gonna be some major curveball thrown in there.

    Since ryan isn't coming, someone bring an extra PS3 and SF4, as well, could someone bring an extra SF4 on top of that? I misplaced it and don't know if I'll find it in time.

    naw, I meant the first serious SNK look alike character capcom ever had. I mean look at Viper. when people first saw pics of her they was saying she looks like a King of Fighters character.
    I'm sayin Volcano Rosso was the first to make that statement as a capcom character without the intention of mocking SNK lol

    We're the self titled #1 most active community in fighting games. On another note, you've got a slick Honda. I always enjoy it when you come up on the FADC streams. Way to represent the army.

    =====

    Back to Buffalo, good shit as usual at the Barcade. ggs to everyone I played, though I somehow never got back around to playing kyle, sorry about that. We'll play first thing next time.

    Food for thought -
    Something Cha, Celes and I were talking about was recruiting, specifically at UB. A couple of things we talked about were throwing up fliers at UB, or having a monthy fight night at the open gaming club on campus. We might even hold a well advertised tourny there where maybe a couple of our top players don't enter, so we aren't overly discouraging to low and mid level players.
    Our thoughts are there must be people at UB that can play sf at some kind of decent level that have no idea about us. Maybe we can find them and show them the light.

    Now, I'm all for this, as long as our crowd doesn't get too shady. But I thought maybe other people had different opinions? This isn't a pressing matter, but maybe we should think and talk together about how/when you want this scene to grow and what it should turn into. We have a really good core player base right now, and once we have the barcade fully open there will be a professional establishment for us to meet at (less personal than someones house). There's a chance for this to grow into something, who knows. Think about it.

    Basically, yea.

    What I was getting at is when we have a commercial arcade where anyone can go, the amount of Buffalo fighting game players will (hopefully) grow a lot. People will go there you and you won't know them. Heck, we might throw a tourny and get someone from Buffalo that none of us know. We can grow the scene now by recruiting people. There might be some casuals we can get to come to game nights if they are interested. But is now too early to do that? How many people are we willing to play with while we still meet as houses?

    Say we throw up fliers and tell people to meet us some day at UB. 20 people show up. Suppose after that day 10 people want to come back. Do we keep meeting at UB, and not tell them about our regular fight nights? Growing the scene brings up those kinda questions, and if we all don't wan to deal with it we can just wait till the barcade is completed.

    Right now, I doubt there are unknowns on our level living in town (though you never know), but I bet we could easily get a lot more people if we wanted to.


    tl;dr, Should we try to get more people into our group (probably nubs) or not?

    I think we should keep the same tradition that Brian keeps: get to know these people before we invite them into our homes. If 10 out of the 20 people show up, and continue to show up and be enthusiastic about
    playing, I say after a while we'll let em in on our casual gatherings and see what happens from there. If it gets to be alot of people we might have to stick to hosting games at UB / barcade, all the while, hanging out in small
    groups on the side. Who knows, we might meet another person like Celest, who's cool that can host games at their place. I guess we'll have to play it by ear, but in the mean time I think what you have is a good idea
    thus far

    So i'm sitting here playing bioshock 2, been playing since about 10pm....I get to the end of one of the areas and have to fight a miniboss. Just about kill her and she does this crazy attack that FREEZES MY GAME, never saw such a powerful attack before. Anyway, the game only autosaves after you exit a level, so I had to reboot xbox and lost an hour and a half of gameplay. fuck you bioshock, fuck you.

    No matter how much you love your xbox, it never loves you back.
    My bioshock does that to me so often :|.
    I just finished the first one. How is the second one? Assuming it's excellent since you've been playing for 2 hours. Not that 2 hours on a video game is much. I knock out 2 hours of SF in training mode.

    I like the first one better, but 2 is very polished and a lot of fun. It's rare for me to sit down for so long and play a game, but I've already played a 4 hour session and a 3 hour session. So far it's totally worth the money, and I think I'm a bit under half through.

    What a timely turn of events!
    If our first introduction is a tourny, I smell a beatdown brewing. Do we have any info yet if they are any good, or have you played any of them? As you say, keep us updated!

    That's a lot of players, hopefully at least 1-2 of them will keep playing after you guys beat them. I smell a lot of "fuck you man I got a job and a life and blahblahblah" out of the rest.

    Wouldn't it be cool if they all joined up though? lol only SF4's hype machine could generate that kind of response, soooooo much hype.
