Welcome to the Buffalo Fighting Game Community thread on SRK.

This thread is a matchfinder for any new players to the WNY region looking for competition or to meet up and play offline, and also a way for old players to reconnect and communicate with the FGC.
Feel free to discuss anything Fighting Game related here as well as drop comments on the community, gaming, life in the B-lo or whatever other type of conversation floats your boat, we're a pretty easy going bunch.

The Buffalo FGC also communicates largely on facebook: Buffalo Fighting Game Community (much more active than this thread currently)

Upcoming Event: Rumble in the Tundra 4- 9/20/14 (details in link, check it out!)

We currently play the following Fighting games competitively in the Buffalo area:
Spoiler:

We hold tournaments often, and travel to most Majors. View current posts to see what is going down on a week to week basis.

We're always looking for more people to join in and play games with us. We sport every kind of player from Casual to Hardcore, we welcome anyone willing to learn the games, hang out with us and as a community we are pretty chill and just love to throw down in these FGs. No one is going to seek to embarrass you or call you out if you are new or not good at a certain game yet, so definitely come meet us before giving in to general FGC perceptions out there. We have done a good job of weeding out the bad seeds and never have issues come game day :)

You can PM me for more information if you aren't comfortable posting up in this thread.

We generally play on these days:

Saturdays from 12pm- late @ Game Space (Inside Paddock Golf Dome Complex) 175 Brompton Rd, 14150

Wednesday (when UB is open) 8pm-11:30pm on the first floor auditorium of the Student Union.

Random weekly Nighttime Online Fights from 8pm-12am on PSN- Rotating game schedule, check recent posts to find out what they are!

There are lots of other sessions going on throughout the week at various player's homes all the time, once you get to know us, you can certainly get in on it!

We also host various streams on : twitch.tv/celestein (view recent posts for times/games being played)


If online playing is more your thing, here is a full list of our current players online:

Only way you are gonna get better, is come play the best in your backyard- here we are.

    I'm working on my alternate character game since I beat everyone down so hard with my Rog...I don't want everyone to cry to their momma's when I perfect em 5 matches in a row. My Sim and Ryu aren't anything to scoff at these days....prepare yourselves fools.

    Hey everyone, we have a new home!

    Sorry I didn't make it to the Barcade on Saturday - I'll spare you my cryin, and just say I'll see you all next week.

    In other news I had some time to kill, and decided to play around a bit on Guilty Gear #R for PC. And all I have to say is WOW. I don't know how many of you played that game, but it was the shit. Seriously! What a great game, I wish I could transport myself a few years back in time just to play it all over again. If any of you are feeling nostalgic I'd totally be down for some casual shit in any GGXX one game night, or hell online if you have the program. Probably a longshot lol but nailing that counter hit pilebunker gives me a special warm and fuzzy feeling inside.

    On to all the homework I neglected!

    Reload was certainly my favorite, and the korean version had a boss ass soundtrack. Need to remind myself to put that OST on my ps3 so I can custom it in for Super StreetFighter, along with all gthe dope ass CVS2 and 3S tracks. Oh and every Cammy stage remix there is.

    Welcome all. Think I might actually miss 8wr. It really wasn't that bad...

    Anyway, can you guys give me feedback on my guide? Worth anything?

    Here's fine. Not asking it to be bumped at all.

    Also, jug... Blocked close mk into non-ex kaiten. In case you haven't already found that yourself. Yeah, I'll admit I haven't tested it yet. Just a frame data prediction.

    Ok, nm on the blocked cl. mk XX grab.

    Further research shows that 13 frames of stun is enough to prevent the 14 frame kaiten grab from connecting. It's why no attack on hit will allow cancelled kaiten to connect. Any blocked jab would. But that's it.

    Sorry about that.

    Sooooooo is anyone here interested in getting into Tatsunoko vs Capcom? I was thinking about buying the game to see if i liked the gameplay then follow up that decision with another stick+sanwa buttons purchase if it was something that we could implement into our rotation or would have decent tournaments in the future.

    I'm gonna stick to my Wii hate. I gave TvC a chance when in Toronto, didn't like it, it felt like a stiff and boring version of mvc1. Though they added my boy Frank West into the mix and it was tempting to play him alone, i will pass.
