    Calling it now Killer Instinct dies in a year. Everyone will go back to playing Marvel and AE. Sad but its true

    Calling it now, KI dies in a year because it's exclusive, next-gen, and not on current-gen/multiconsole. Not because it's "bad".

    Of course, I don't think the game is bad, being exclusive and next gen really hurts it. Regardless of my opinion for the xbone I want Killer Instinct to do well. I want to see how other companies use the free 2 play option in the future. Hell I even thought about getting an xbone for us to use. But frankly I can't see spending $500 for a console then another $200 for a stick.

    I will eat my words though I've watched some of the game today it looks like it has fixed stuff that I didn't like when I played it back in July. Game looks great, net code seems to be really solid when I saw Valle streaming it. So far Double helix seems to have done a great job

    My hope, is that MS will be threatened enough by SteamOS to port more of their exclusives to Windows. That would mean KI on another platform.

    What's the Fresno KOFXIII scene like?

    Well the community mostly plays UMVC3, AE, we have some that play Persona, Blazblue, injustice also. Also there is smash community as well. We usually stream at twitch.tv/alphacounter. Ill be streaming tonight some AE PC. But starting December 1st we will BE MOVING TWITCH CHANNELS! the new twitch channel is twitch.tv/fresnogaminglive So if you want to check out the stream follow the channel. We also host weekly sessions every Friday out in Clovis as well at Gabb Fitness.


    Might as well make an announcement for people who don't know, As of December 1st, Alpha-Counter is no more, we are rebranding our name and will be known now as the Fresno Gaming Community. Now before anybody asks, this changes ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!! We will still have Friday Night Danger Rooms, still have tournaments at Gabb Fitness and so forth. This rebranding is allowing us to do more things and build up our community better. I have a lot of exciting new projects that are in the works and can't wait to implement in the near future. So next saturday's Central Valley Showdown tournament will the be the last Alpha-Counter event. Then the Fresno Gaming era will begin. We are really excited about the change and thank you guys for all the support you have shown over the past year we have done this.

    Here is the link for the tournament next saturday,
    https://www.facebook.com/events/159502710926772/

    should be fun and hope to see you guys make it out!

    If you have any questions, feedback anything about tournaments, the name change, sessions and stuff, please post. We like to hear any input on any ideas you guys have or things you like to see. Ill give you guys more info about the move in the next few days

    Thanks again to everyone who showed up and helped out last weekend, turnout was great and i'm already looking forward to planning the next one.

    I do have a question to ask all of you.

    Would there be more interest to have Danger Rooms on Saturdays like lets say 4-10pm rather than Friday nights 9-2? Want to gauge interest here and see what works out best for everyone.


    Also if you guys didn't know already, Alpha-Counter is dead. We have decided to rebrand ourselves and will now be known as The Fresno Gaming Community. This is an exciting time for us and I got a lot of different ideas and projects for the future. But to clear up any confusion, EVERYTHING WILL STIILL BE THE SAME. We will still have friday sessions, tournaments and so forth.

    Here are two links. One is for the new facebook page and the other is our facebook group. Both will be used but the second link for the group will be more active to post about outside sessions and other stuff

    @ Jared

    I'm not too sure about The Fresno Gaming Community because its acronym is very similar to the generic "fighting game community" (FGC) that people like to use. It doesn't really stand out and I can see it overlapping with other interests and getting confused. On the bright side, I dont see anyone getting mad about it either because its so generic so theres that.

    at the very least shouldn't we have a link to the FB group somewhere so we can redirect them to a place where people will actually get a response?
