McAllen Thread


#1

Yo new to the area from Houston. I have a DC, PS2, GC, and XBOX, with 2 sticks and just about any fighter you can name. I am trying to find some decent ppl to play fighters with, drink intoxicating beverages with, poker, just plain hang out. No high school geeks please, just older geeks.

I would like to say, you sir, are fucked. I’ve been down in Harlingen for about 4 weeks now. Harlingen, Brownsville, Mcallen… it’s all the same in the end. You’re lucky though. Houston is only 6 hours away. You can still turn back. I came all the way from S.Bronx NY/Fayetteville NC… :sad: “The Valley” as I’ve heard this place called, is so different, it’s not even funny.

This is what’s going to happen. You are going to realize life sucks here. You are going to hate life. Then you are going to try gaming, and realize there is no fun in that either. Then, you will hate games as well. The only people who don’t go through that process, are people who grew up here. Yeah, I could be like “omg welcome let’s game!!!” But fuck that. This place has sucked all hope for life and joy in life, right out my asshole. Well, enjoy the valley. And good luck with games! :tup:

Jive Out!

EDIT: I hope you’re not black too. :lol: This place isn’t to black culture friendly. Harlingen Time Warner doesn’t even carry BET. And if I ask somebody where to get wave grease from, they have no idea what I’m talking about. :shake:

Been here for a little while…over a year…like it so far–was pretty worried the first few months though so i understand that it takes a while to get over the culture shock–moved here for a job and a girl. There are things i like better about H town and things i am certainly glad i don’t have to deal with anymore. Life is full of trade offs you know? The food here is the best i have ever had, the people are some of the friendliest i have ever met anywhere (had several people I never even met help me move into my apt!), and My wife is down here so that is a definite plus. Kickass movie theaters, and its never too crowded to drive on the highway so you don’t have to wait in traffic for hours either. Give this place a chance man like I did. Its all good at the end of the day.

I Hear you are good a 3s and I need someone to help teach me. I play online quite a bit, too.

P.S. I am white (married to a hispanic cool chick who likes nerds)


#15

damn man i live really close to you…like 5-7 minutes away


#16

MWUAHAHAHA!!! its a death trap here can i be black too?
:sad:


#17

Wow a McAllen thread. Let this thread die quick and post in the harlingen thread. Yeah best bet for fighters is Harlingen for any game. B-ville is only good for like Tekken5 and one or two MVC2 players. For poker if you mean hold em with real money im your man. You should go to the Brownsville Tilt next T5/MVC2 tourny.

and… when and where are the games did you say?

i will fight anyone in any fighter. :karate:
teams:

3s= i am one of the few people left who don’t use ken sa3, (daigo wannabes) chun-li sa2 (jwong wannabes) and yun sa3 (ko wannabes).

MvC2=any non-top tier… i have a strong team shoto (as strong as they can be, anyway) hulk, zangief, etc… you know, characters that actually take skill to play. i am a sentinal killer, i hate that big robot and his moron mutant friends.

MvC1= strider/ryu, wolverine/ryu
CvS2= ratio 4 hao, ratio 4 ryu, team shoto, any other
Chaos= genjuro, ryu, takuma, kasumi, dimitri, violent ken, any other

KOF= any team with takuma

SC2= ivy, (with moves other than criminal sympohony)
older sf games= ryu

yep, definately a shoto at heart, but not the fireball x 100 type. willing to travel, just name time and place.
