Dudley.

Not exactly suspenseful anymore. Now it’s just annoying, capcom. Come on. Out with it already.


#215

soon enough they will announce it. not like we don’t already know. 95% of that rumor list was true so i highly doubt there’s gonna be some major curveball thrown in there.


#216

Won’t be making it to the Barcade this week due to work. Maybe next week.


#217

throw some SF EX characters in the game instead? lol


#218

^lol that would be sweet


#219

cool that there is another sf scene outside nyc in the states ; )


#220

^ damn skippy, we have a pretty good scene too. maybe one of these days we’ll have to come up to nyc


#221

Since ryan isn’t coming, someone bring an extra PS3 and SF4, as well, could someone bring an extra SF4 on top of that? I misplaced it and don’t know if I’ll find it in time.

We’ll see…

EDIT: [media=youtube]2eyhQ1PwFIE&feature=related[/media]

vulcano rosso was the first SNK look alike character capcom ever had to tell the truth… oh wait…
Akira produced this game / not capcom’s character >_<


#225

Yo Dan was first to mock SNK before that, he was supposed to be making fun of Robert Garcia and Ryo.

-B


#226

naw, I meant the first serious SNK look alike character capcom ever had. I mean look at Viper. when people first saw pics of her they was saying she looks like a King of Fighters character.
I’m sayin Volcano Rosso was the first to make that statement as a capcom character without the intention of mocking SNK lol


#227

word, i was gonna say, I know Jug already knew this, i missed that point. lol


#228

We’re the self titled #1 most active community in fighting games. On another note, you’ve got a slick Honda. I always enjoy it when you come up on the FADC streams. Way to represent the army.

Back to Buffalo, good shit as usual at the Barcade. ggs to everyone I played, though I somehow never got back around to playing kyle, sorry about that. We’ll play first thing next time.

Food for thought -
Something Cha, Celes and I were talking about was recruiting, specifically at UB. A couple of things we talked about were throwing up fliers at UB, or having a monthy fight night at the open gaming club on campus. We might even hold a well advertised tourny there where maybe a couple of our top players don’t enter, so we aren’t overly discouraging to low and mid level players.
Our thoughts are there must be people at UB that can play sf at some kind of decent level that have no idea about us. Maybe we can find them and show them the light.

Now, I’m all for this, as long as our crowd doesn’t get too shady. But I thought maybe other people had different opinions? This isn’t a pressing matter, but maybe we should think and talk together about how/when you want this scene to grow and what it should turn into. We have a really good core player base right now, and once we have the barcade fully open there will be a professional establishment for us to meet at (less personal than someones house). There’s a chance for this to grow into something, who knows. Think about it.


#229

grow into something? like what? what is the ultimate goal here? heh, I say the more friends the better.


#230

Basically, yea.

What I was getting at is when we have a commercial arcade where anyone can go, the amount of Buffalo fighting game players will (hopefully) grow a lot. People will go there you and you won’t know them. Heck, we might throw a tourny and get someone from Buffalo that none of us know. We can grow the scene now by recruiting people. There might be some casuals we can get to come to game nights if they are interested. But is now too early to do that? How many people are we willing to play with while we still meet as houses?

Say we throw up fliers and tell people to meet us some day at UB. 20 people show up. Suppose after that day 10 people want to come back. Do we keep meeting at UB, and not tell them about our regular fight nights? Growing the scene brings up those kinda questions, and if we all don’t wan to deal with it we can just wait till the barcade is completed.

Right now, I doubt there are unknowns on our level living in town (though you never know), but I bet we could easily get a lot more people if we wanted to.

tl;dr, Should we try to get more people into our group (probably nubs) or not?


#231

I think we should keep the same tradition that Brian keeps: get to know these people before we invite them into our homes. If 10 out of the 20 people show up, and continue to show up and be enthusiastic about
playing, I say after a while we’ll let em in on our casual gatherings and see what happens from there. If it gets to be alot of people we might have to stick to hosting games at UB / barcade, all the while, hanging out in small
groups on the side. Who knows, we might meet another person like Celest, who’s cool that can host games at their place. I guess we’ll have to play it by ear, but in the mean time I think what you have is a good idea
thus far
