Hey Brightside/KingofBums. You’re not alone in the world.


Ah damn it I wish I could make it out to Nickel City but I’m gonna be busy doing work so I can be free Sunday. 21st birthday, hell yes.

Also hopefully will see some people Monday, going to try my damned best to get out to Ignite.

I’ll be making it out to Nickle City tonight, really looking forward to it.

Stick’s working fine, recognizes my PS3 first time, every time, though I don’t have access to a 360 to see if it’s still having issues with it like it was that first night.

all those people looked terrible

I’m on the north side for reserves, and I’m gone get a chance to check out nickle city. Glad that venue fee is free our else I wouldn’t be able to go.

If I just bring my system and games will it be some extra tv’s for me to hook it up on.


Anyone heading to nickel city from the city?..i need a ride, i can make to any cta stop or anywhere near that

looking for a ride to nickel city i can make any blue line stop you can call me at 773 964 2479 if you want to help me out.

I believe I speak for everyone when I say


Unfortunately this isn’t the permanent solution.


We can start to setup earlier then expected at NC tonight, 6:30 is the time scheduled now. I will be omw shortly, I could offer to pick guys up from the metra stop which is about half a mile away. My info is on the FB group page docs and all over the 1st page of this thread.

I’ve been using my stick fine on both xbox and PS3 (been using it more on Xbox though. i’ll take it to GGA next week to put it through the rigorous PS3 testing there lol)

Haven’t had a chance to play much last week, been busy. I’ll test it soon (probably tomorrow morning/afternoon) online w/ mic though

Just got back from Nickel City and had a great time there, love that it’s spacious and lots of setups!

Here’s a pic I took:

Good times tonight, I think Nickel Saturdays are going to work out real well.

Had a great time at Nickel City, lots of room, setups and great atmosphere, cant wait till next week. The staff was very friendly and hospitable!

The owner made it clear that he wants tournaments and is willing to throw in extra money into every tournament! So a monthly is going to be happening!
