And bump goes the dynamite
3S was also popular back when I was 13 and in Europe. Didn’t get into fighting games until I got better at and started enjoying Tekken. I remember my cousin kicking my ass at 3S wwwwaaaaaay back in the day and whenever I started playing it again, the game became an entirely new venture for me.
I’m sure there new guys willing to take the torch since the old folks have decided to move on but there’s a lot of us who love the craft that 3S is. If Tokyo can do it why can’t Chicago? Are we, as Americans, that bent on being whores for every new game under the sun or can we be complacent with a game we truly love?
Uh oh… Just got out of microecon class… ‘Bout to have a nigga talkin’ about indifference curves and utility functions and shit.
Anyway, I made a Facebook group for those who are interested. If you don’t have FB… Well, get one just for this.
AND if NYC can do it, I’m sure Chicago do it… Don’t let me down you people.
I was 11 when 3S dropped, overseas, and more interested in euros and FLCL at the time. It’s not my fault that my interest in the game piqued just 2 years ago.
I’m also just frustrated at the lack of overall participation there was where I came from. See, between 2004 (when I returned to the US) and 2009, there was nothing that really got me into fighting games… Then my gf challenged me to Soul Calibur 2 (a game I cherish) AND BEAT ME… Then, I started meeting people and went to my first tourney at a small card-shop called Lucky’s in Greensboro, NC. There, I proceeded to get rocked in Tekken and played a little 3S. Then, I played it more… Then, I stopped doing cracked and starting playing 3rd Strike (jk).
But seriously, I’m not a fan of the current model of waiting for the monthly tourney to roll around. I’d prefer to have a weekly, bi-weekly, event that has more than just casual merit. A league like this is more than just casuals with a name. The way I see it, this is like an old man’s basketball league. We’re not trying to do anything huge but I’m always open to the idea.
Also, I can’t get into recent games all to well. I play Soul Cal V, wanna get into KOF more, and Tekken but 3S is fun and I think has the potential to have one of the most dedicated fanbases around and is my favorite game… So why would I cave in to someone elses interests when mine are right here?
I don’t really care if this fails, I just have enough conviction to ask because I know no one’s going to do it for me…
Damn… That’s the longest post I’ve ever typed on SRK… Damn you internet… DAMN YOU.
