    You're near the galleria mall I take it? That place has a few great fighters but the owner does not seem to really take care of them. Last time I was there was 2 weeks ago and the marvel 2 cab was working because the sticks and buttons had been ripped from a soul caliber game.

    I'm sure we could get a small get together rolling along.

    Yeah I'm right across from Galleria mall in the Hampton Inn. I went there 3 night and was the only person there besides a DDR player. Lol.

    I'm going back to jersey for the weekend but ill be back in town Monday night.
    Let me know if anything is goin on. Would be cool to just get a casual night while I'm here.

    Hey guys, I know any of the areas here would be in for a long drive to get here, but on the 27th, Pittsburgh is having its monthly and I was wondering if any of you guys would be interested, we play AE, Marvel, KOF (Including Season's Beatings t-12 TJ), P4 and Tekken. Venue fee is $3, which is waived if you bring a set up, and each game is $5, we usually draw around 12-15 people per game, but we've got Erie coming down so that should drive the number be between 15-20 for AE and round 12-15 for everything else. I'm also trying to get State College and some of Cleveland in the fold. It's in the CMU University Center, registration starts at 7:30, games will start at 8. It will likely be in the Danforth Room.

    This area seems pretty dead as far as tournaments/events/casuals go. Anyone know of any near the York/Harrisburg/Lancaster area?

    I play Marvel casuals with a friend now and then, at least once a week. We both go to school at Millersville.

    I noticed the Shrewsbury Gamestop sold their copies of Street Fighter Anniversary Collection and CvS2. Which one of you lucky souls grabbed them? York needs a Third Strike scene ASAP.

    I had no idea that the Galleria Mall had any fighters in it. I don't know why more local bars don't get cabinets like these in. Kind of sad. I remember Jo-Jos in Hummelstown used to have some great games on there.

    Anyway.. Anyone know of anything happening in York. Local here.

    You can find MvC2, SNK vs Capcom, and Tekken machines scattered around, such as in West Manchester Mall, the Galleria, and the Queens St. bowling alley, but they tend to be broken (unresponsive buttons).

    Comic Store West wants nothing to do with fighting game events, sadly. York College might allow a student to organize an event, but all events must be approved and planned with the administrators.

    That is sad really.. broken. I know about the Comic Store West. I was in talks with the owner for about a month getting some fighting game event with UMvC3 and SF4, but that fizzled out and I assumed he wasn't interested. Mostly that idea of how to get people to sign up if they couldn't win anything (illegal in PA apparently).

    I used to work at YCP. They do allow students to organize, and they did have a Team Fortress 2 tourney at one point. I think the hardest part would be getting people in who are not YCP students and time constraints.

    I thin until we can find a centrally located area that will allow us to have a meet we are doomed to drive to MD or Philly.

    We could try Planet X Comic, supposedly they already have an "Xbox lounge".

    I just looked up Planet X Comic on Google Maps; I never knew that place existed. It's in a good location near the theaters, grocery stores and the highway. I'll have to stop by there when I'm near and see if they have regular gaming sessions. Even if we organized casual sessions rather than tournaments, we could draw people on Friday night or the weekend.

    I think we would have to start small like that. Just get a few people together for casuals. I think there is a PA law against money winnings in a tournament, think it is viewed as illegal gambling? (WTF)

    I live near by Planet X Comics. I can swing by when I get a chance, which doesn't happen very often if at all. Baby, Wife, Work

    Hey maybe i could talk my wife into having some ppl over for some matches on sfxt and sf4. I know 2 friends local who would probably play. One is really goodand the other not really. He likes sf4 better. I have xbox and an arcade stick, hori ex2 turbo pad, and original xbox controller anyone can use if u dont have xbox or just would like to try either controllers out. That is unless my match is up. Lol. We can figure that out then. If youre familiar with the area i live about a block away from Kiwanis lake and about 1/2 mile from george st just off of rt 30 by the hooters on Pennsylvania ave. I have a wife and son who would be here so a family event. So, kids and anyone else is welcome. Drinking and anything else is allowed we dont mind that, just do it responsibly, just good fun with good people. Itll still get loud, so not like its some stuffy quiet atmosphere as to not offend my wife or anything. My place isnt big but i could get another set up for my basement if needed. I have a fenced in yard kids could play if they come and fire rimg if at night. Coming up soon i wont have much time as i work at an ice manufacturer, so i dont have much time during the summers. I play sfxt, but sf4 can definitely be played. Just need someone to bring their copies. I dont have the AE edition only super. I also have MK ive only played that like 3 times tho.

    Just going to throw this out as an FYI in case it has not been mentioned before.

    Tilt at the York Galleria mall has a few machines in them. They have a Tekken 5, MvC2, CvS, and a Tekken Tag machine.


    I wonder if they would be open to having a tourney....

    What's up guys! I'm working with a local studio/art gallery to set up a tournament in Lancaster that could potentially turn into something regular. The date is going to be 6/30. Right now, I'm looking at having AE, UMVC3, and Injustice tournaments, as well as a COD tournament. I'm really only into fighters, but the studio wants to broaden the range to attract some different crowds and get a feel for what's more popular, so I'm hoping a lot of you can come out and show some love, and help me turn it into a monthly.

    I'm hoping to run singles and teams for AE and Marvel, and probably just singles for Injustice. Depending on the turnout, there is definitely hope for different games in the future. I know a lot of you play SFxT also, but I don't want to put too many games on the card for the first one.

    Tentatively, there is going to be a $5 venue fee, and it will probably be $5 to enter each game, which will be the prize pool. I just got the green light yesterday, so I'm going to be contacting some local vendors and see if I can get some pot bonuses or prizes donated to sweeten the deal, but I can't promise anything yet. I'm going to put a thread in the tournament section once I think of a name for the tournament, and have the price structure set in stone. I was hoping to get some feedback from you guys first.

    The venue has a bathroom, is near local eateries, and is BYOB after 7 or 8pm, so if you have friends who want to come through as well just to hang out, but not necessarily enter, feel free to bring them.

    If you guys have any questions/suggestions, please feel free to hit me up!

    I wanted to add sfxt, but for the first event, they didn't want to go overboard with the number of games/tournaments until they can get an idea of what kind of turnout we have. I'm hoping to move it into the direction of just fighting games, which would give me some more leeway to add more games to the roster. If you can, you should still come through to check it out and show some love so we can host another in the future!

    Totally understand that. Gotta gauge the interest with the most popular games. I get that. Just if i. The future sfxt gets added I'll definitely be there. Im from york, so not sure if I'll make the trip to spectate, but good luck and I look forward to future tournaments.

    Damn that is pretty awesome. I live close enough to Lancaster to make that drive. 6/30 sucks though as I will be at the beach.

    I hope they decide they want to do this again At 5 bucks a head that is not bad. Hope it works!

    I just picked up Injustice a few weeks ago. Anyone down for Injustice or Marvel let me know.
