#2

gga games there are not worth playing. they are still trying to charge full $15 to play their game when most of us will be playing tournament games. if they made it cheaper, they can probably earn more because of the amount of people that will be there.

also it’s looking like there will be pretty much no space for casuals there.

location of gga is probably the best ever for city people so hopefully people from the city will come.

good luck


#3

we will have space for casuals


#4

PPPPPPPLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Run SSF4 on 360. The majority of players play on 360, and bigger tournaments such as SoCal Regionals are starting to run on 360. Not to mention I can bring a full 360 set up, as can many other people in the Champaign-Urbana area. We all play on the “evo” Asus monitor.

And why no CvS2 on the voting for 3rd game?


#5

I would be more than happy to make the bracket for and run sf4 or sf4 teams, or the yet unnamed third game.


#6

leave it to aki’s ass to drive up in this thread with his rice burner (probably got pulled over on the way and got a ticket even though he paid for a fucking cop detector in his car) to start off the thread with random hate

ill be there.


#7

PREREGISTERING:

Bonzai (Wai Yin)
Guilty Gear Singles
SSF4 Singles
Guilty Gear Teams? (Still unsure, put me as a no for now)

Where are the avy’s?


#8

U know what? I think I’ll come to this as a photographer. I need to remake my portfolio. cool? :wink:


#9

Bozac if need be I have no problem running the 3rd Game. =]

Frankie G
Chicago
Super SF4 singles(


#10

really hope ssf4 is going to be ran on 360


#11

Ill pretty much run SSFIV on whatever console I can get the most of honestly. I have a PS3 personally but its the exact same game and there will be plenty of sticks so I dont really care what its on to be honest. So, if you want it on a particular console, offering to bring that console and a copy of the game will help to ensure its on whatever console you like (though I still dont get why people care so much what console its on).


#12

Apparently, there’s a 1 frame lag on the PS3 compared to the 360.


#13

Unless this is some new discovery, I was told that over the course of like an hour or something that the frame rate of the PS3 would lag one frame slower than the 360 over time. Which basically means jack shit. Of course, i could be wrong.


#14

You play Guilty Gear, and you’re trying to convince everyone that one frame lag means jack shit?

~golf clap~


#15

He plays at such a high level that he is above one frame of lag, duh!

Regging for SSF4 and GG singles! I’ll post up team whenever (if) I find one.


#16

I think you missed what i was trying to get at. If it is really one frame of input lag as a direct comparison then it DOES mean something. From what I heard from someone, it was something to do with internal clock speeds being like a fraction of a second so that the game runs like one frame slower when compared over an hours worth of time.

If it is infact a whole frame of input lag then I see everyones point. And as I already said, I am fine with it being on 360 as long as people provide 360s cuz I dont even own one. The venue can provide at least 4 of either console though, so if we can get enough copies of the game as well for 360, there shouldnt be a problem.


#17

pre-registering for GG and SSF4.


#18

You can feel a difference.

I vote 360. Would bring set up probably.


#19

it seems just about everyone wants it on 360. im fine with that. its actually better for me cuz then I probably wont need to bring my PS3 from Japan. more luggage room


#20

why excuse me but, hell yes.

sign me up for GG and MB. Ill prolly play bb and TVC and garou if they any of them happen.
