New to fighting games, looking to improve. Does anyone know of locals for fighting games (specifically Skullgirls) in these areas?
Yes. There’s locals in Norfolk, Chesapeake, Newport News, and VA Beach weekly. Coming up this Sunday will be our first session at Replays on Lynnhaven, from 5:30 pm to 10:00 or 11:00 pm. There’s a venue fee of 5$ to get in. There will be casuals and tournaments for AE2012 and UMVC3, and casuals for any other game people want to play. Anyone’s free to bring their own setups. So if you want to play SG, bring a setup for SG if you can. There are a few of us scattered out here who like SG, so if one of us is around, we’ll play with you. I’m bad at it, but I can get by with my old pre-patch combos.
There’s also Winners Sports Bar in Norfolk every Tuesday night from 6:00 to 12:00 pm. We have a similar thing there. No venue fee, enjoy some solid food, and play casuals in whatever game your heart desires the whole night. There’s lots of Injustice play there, some KOFXIII, and some AE, but any game is welcome.
Also, people host at their crib during the week. Blackula hosts at his place in Deep Creek every Friday for Injustice, Tekken, and anything else people bring. Zues hosts at his place for UMVC3 mainly, but also some AE and KOFXIII.
Currently, the best way to keep track of when all this stuff is going on is to join the facebook group if you haven’t already done so: http://www.facebook.com/groups/217040528309206/
Thanks. I’m new to fighting games. I work this Sunday but hopefully I can come to some locals soon.
