I doubt much of anyone is from NEPA, but I guess we could hope and try to get something started. Thank you for starting this thread.


#3

where you from dragonheart?


#4

Luzerne, PA. i.e., just outside of Wilkes-Barre.


#5

i know where thats at, im in wilkes barre. we should get some matches in sometime. do you know anyone else who plays?


#6

Sadly, no. I’m just hoping for the best with this thread.


#7

Hey I’m from Kingston! Man you all remember Jolly Time, I guess we could go there and play some Tekken or something?


#8

Yeah, they have T5 there… but I’m more interested in SF.


#9

same. I dont know anything about Tekken really.

If you play SF, worm, I think it would be cool to get me you and lizard together for some offlines if everyone is down for it.


#10

NEPA still dead?


#11

I’m in NEPA frequently enough. From the Poconos and now living in Binghamton. Takes about an hour to Scranton for me, and WB about 1.5 hrs.

I was trying to get a NEPA scene up for a LONG ass time… Lehigh Valley has a decent enough one, since they get some people from Philly to come up.


#12

Im still very interested in getting a NEPA scene going.
I was looking around, and it seems that this place: http://www.adventuregamespa.com/ may not be bad to have the sessions at (Though I do not personally know much about them). They have the 360’s, and ps3’s. I have extra 360 sticks I can bring.


#13

Well…

There was a LAN center in Scranton called ThatGamingPlace. Their forums are still up somewhere. They played SF3:3S back in the day. If you can get in touch with them, that might be a starting ground.

There’s also a few people in Stroudsburg, PA that play. One of which is a guy named Alex. I don’t know where to get in touch with him, but his gamer tag on Steam was Sinister Device. The dude was AMAZING at Tekken and Soul Calibur.

Also, get in touch with this dude: https://www.facebook.com/nickgaskins
I don’t know if he still plays, but we used to play a lot of SF and MvC2 together. He came up with me to TGP a few times too. Lives in Tobyhanna.

Again, more stuff you can look into. I don’t know if that helps.


#14

Someone messaged me a while ago saying that one of the lan places closed(died off actually, but thats kinda vague) that was in scranton. I will call the place you mentioned tomorrow and see whats up.
the guy you linked is actually mutual friends with two people i know, but I would feel weird just messaging him out of the blue haha. Do you think you could see whats up with him?

if that place is still open we should get some sets in. if you know anyone by you that would want to come, bring em. I would like to have at least 3 people


#15

Alright. Well, I will tell you that TGP’s original location, like two blocks away from Steamtown mall… gone.

But yeah, if you can get on their forums and see where they all are at, then that would be cool.
I’ll talk to Nick and see what he knows / does / lives… He might have moved permanently at this point.

I’ll get back to you.


#16

Oh

just found this:

Happy birthday. :wink:


#17

OK, so I talked to Nick, and he lives in Tobyhanna still. He said he plays Marvel 3.


#18

I’ve just moved (last week) to a place called Carbondale (from NJ originally) I was just starting to get into a ssf4/mvc3 scene before i moved. I’m confused that their is no scene here, I’ve never been there but i heard Scranton is a big place.


#19

Yeah, you’re pretty close to Scranton. I pass through Carbondale on my way from my place to my parents’. There has never been a good fighting game scene in the Pocono / NEPA area though. There WAS a time when Soul Calibur 2 WAS FUCKING TREMENDOUS here… but that died… I don’t know what happened… Everybody here plays CoD and WoW.


#20

so if zast is down for offlines, that would make 3 ppl and I think thats good for us to start something up.

we just gotta find a place to host it, the place i linked to seems okay i think, at least to start

if you guys are okay with that place, we should setup a time. Friday good for everyone?

edit: if that nick guy is down, invite him. I dont play marvel, but ill play for fun. I play sf2,3,4, mk9 and garou(poorly)
