This isn’t an official thread for the PSU group I played with yesterday.
But I wasn’t sure where to post this. I was lucky I was able to make it out this week, but I’m very glad I did.
This is Chanchai, aka Nick. Chubby asian (Thai) dude wearing black dockers and black shirt yesterday. AKA, that one dude who seems to only have VF on his mind for some silly reason.
I wanted to say thanks for the great times! You guys are an awesome group, lots of good people and a very fun atmosphere.
I can’t remember everyone’s names right now… But here are some shout outs:
Mackinzie: Thanks for reminding me about this cool weekly get-together. ShinryujinX told me about it awhile back and said it was pretty cool. Thanks for putting up with my constant phone calls asking for directions. And well, so far I’ve been having lots of great times with you at GT, Bamboo Grove (the Hawaiian joint we went to), Versis, and PSU. Looking forward to Friday!
@JS (don’t know what the former RacerX calls himself now): Andrew, it was so awesome to see you again! And you play good VF these days! But back to the most important part, it’s been so long since we last hung out! To the point that you forgot that I have seen your “new place.” We’ll be hanging out more soon, I hope. Though I know you’ve got school and interviews and all that jazz. GOOD LUCK! Also, thanks for coming out to Versis with me after the PSU night. All of those matches we had in VF5 were great and I had a blast. You’re Akira and Brad are driving me nuts and I think we’re helping each other out refining our fundamentals.
Sam Y: Good to see you again. I finally gave you a more proper introduction, as opposed to the barely “hello” I offered on Friday. Thanks a lot for coming down to fetch me as I got lost in Smith Hall. I really look forward to meeting up more and chatting. I also want to say that I watched a bit of your 3S (obviously everyone else has seen it), and I’m glad we have a few guys in your generation who are leading the charge to your style of play in Portland. It’s not really fair to call it a style, because you guys play with a purity. I think it’s doing great things in redirecting the crazy talent Portland’s always had into a very complete game. I hope I didn’t offend anyone in Portland with this statement.
Jetay: Sorry if I mispelled your name, man. Great meeting you. So far, I think you’re a fun, straight up, and sincere guy. Thanks so much for getting VF4:Evo up on the station (sorry to the A3 players, but I can’t resist VF, it’s a known fact). Thanks a lot for the matches. We’re gonna work on your game, but you do already have good game, definitely high potential. Also, it was cool seeing one of your matches, though we had to watch it in fast forward at some point. Any chance I can get a copy of the DVD?
Thomas: I barely got to know you, but boy you really have a nice VF game. Sorry Aoi’s become a “more demanding and expert class” characer in VF5. Aoi saw how I had to really relearn Aoi in VF5 because the stuff I was driving people nuts with in VF4:Evo just wasn’t flying in 5 anymore. I still have crazy faith in her, mainly because I’ve seen how top Japanese are playing her, but boy is she tough to use in VF5 now. I really liked seeing your Evo Aoi and look forward to more VF with you. On top of that, look forward to meeting up sometimes–another cool guy that I only talked to for a bit.
Kabuki: Nice to finally meet you Ross. Even if just barely. I like that you’ve been following your fighting games and seems like you read up on forums and play quite a bit. Let’s hangout sometime.
Mark: We just met for a bit at the end of the evening. Nice seeing your enthusiasm for Guilty Gear. That’s a game I’m going to eventually have to learn from the ground up. Thanks for offering up your place for some games in the future too.
Others: I met quite a few other people but can’t quite remember names if any were taken. But you guys at PSU have a great thing going, so I look forward to future get-togethers, hopefully I can make more of these!
