I LOVE YOU SOOOO MUCH

Thank you. Thank You.
I’m there. Do you guys need any volunteers for the event???
Can we call this TX Showdown 7 BTW? :lovin:


#5

Kinda sad that it’s separate from AM this year (gonna miss those hot cosplayers walking around while I’m trying to mod sticks!), but I’ll definitely be back!

(especially if there’s Skullgirls! XD)


#6

Registration page says ‘Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2013’.

Who needs an update from Ono? v.2013 confirmed!


#7

Working on bringing cosplayers just for you Duckie


#8

Whoo! Texas Showdown is at Houston and the venue is only 40 minutes away! This is my first FG event I’ll be attending so I’m fucking psyched and cant wait to attend. Maybe I’ll compete in SF4 to get my anus kicked lol.


#9

I’m trying to get to the website but it goes to SCR’s site. O_o


#10

Fixed the links on the first post.


#11

They have to flash pantsu at me or it’s just not the same.

Oh, and EVO is supporting Skullgirls. C’mon, show the game some love. :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

Unfortunately, you will either need to find an Xbox 360 stick, or an adapter.  AE will be played on Xbox 360 this year.<br>
