You should change the Guilty Gear to slash.

By that date he should change it to AC.

And 3S on the DC?

I guarantee you won’t get a soul for that.

a tournament in media?..

I only have 3S for DC and Xbox. So if anybody wants to bring their ps2 or more xbox copies feel free to. I’ll bring my SFAC along with my 3SDC. ANd as I mentioned i’ll change GGXX to whatever version if they people provide a copy of the latest release AND a PS2 that plays imports. As far as I can tell slash and the new version coming out aren’t being released stateside.

seriously are there people who would help out with the GG portion?

i’ll bring a modded ps2 and a copy of gg: slash… i used to live at the granite run mall and currently i’m like 10 mins away…

I had to move the tournament back one weekend. I HAVE to take a first time home buyers class on June 16th. The tournament is now on Saturday June 23rd. I need the help of a mod to change the title since the advance edit only changes the in thread title.

What are the favored SNK games? I feel alittle disrespectful not including at least one or two of their clssic fighters. Do you guys perfer KOF neowave or KOF 2K3?

Yah The Tri-state Will Be Present>>>>>all Caps Ho!!!

Eric V Out

Moar like KoFXI.

But if you can’t get that, then either 2k2 or neowave.

if its going to be on console, then get neowave definitely.

:cool: then i will come :cool:

Are there a good amount of people entering mvc2 and cvs2?

i’ll look for a copy of Neowave. Is there a peferred console for the game? So far you people give off a PS2 vibe.

More like, you’ll make plans to come and end up not going, or something like that.

As far as I can tell, neowave is better on either console, although PS2 could be better since more people have sticks for the console.

I can only find copies of the xbox neowave(which goes for about ~$19) and after checking eb, half, ebay, and amazonI found one PS2 copy that wasn’t an import for $42. Man this game is harder to find then I thought. =P

hubbs im gonna kill myself to come to this…i need to travel out my state to support the scene so im gonna do my best -.-

might need housing though-.-

i’m sure kchan can house you for this. gotta ask her though, she’s gonna help me a little bit, besides supplying me with an extra dreamcast or two.

I can bring a ps2 and 3s on ps2…beyond that put me down for ( tourney wise ) 3s and cvs2 i love those games:)

if i bring a ps2(modded) anychance i can run Super Turbo and Fist of The North Star ???/ if so ill come i got nothin better to do in june :slight_smile:
