Well, that’s pretty much it. October 28th will be the 3rd year Anniversary for the Stargate, and each year has been marked by a major change of some kind. This newest change is the most profound and is a direct reflection of the gaming industry itself.

That said, the Stargate will continue to do it’s best to be the ultimate place for serious, competitive gamers.

Sorry for the long wait and I hope you guys will come and give it a try.

peace,
Cmutt

This is fantastic news! Big thanks to C-mutt for all the hard work,
how about we kick this grandopening off with weeklies on tuesday? I do believe austin regionals is comming up very soon, everyone get your game on!


#3

what games are staying arcade based?


#4

Cool, glad you decided to offer hourly rates. Are we still keeping weeklies on Tuesday cuz I heard Ranma offering to change it if enuff people wanted to do so.


#5

This set up is pretty cool. I went Sunday when he started it out, not many people were there but it was still fun. All the arcade games at the “smaller room” where on free play, but still on arcade. Which I think is bad ass, hope Cmutt doesn’t change that. I pretty much tried out every game there and got to play some stupid teams on mvc2, and it didn’t cost an assload like I woulda wasted… so yea. Everyone go and check it out, I think this is a big improvement and will work out for the best for everyone. Hopefully we can start having weeklies again. Ltez

THE Chris, hey it’s Adam. Glad to see this is shaping up to be what you were talking about a while ago. $7-10 for a day is awesome since I spend $20 or so when I’m there usually.

Not much to say, I’ll see if I can bring some friends over once I go.

I’m playing the heck out of your svc lol. Are you gonna get the cart ever?
