Spokane, WA - Game On relocating, fight nights temporarily cancelled


#1077

Derek, you were super close. The top 4 guys were all 1 point away from each other. That was a really intense battle.

No Ronnie, but the turnout wasn’t bad. 1st place in Marvel got $63 and 1st in SSFIV got $98. Not bad for a few hours’ work.

Also, FIGHT CLUB TONIGHT. I want all you suckas to be here.

LOL, I participated in an online Marvel tournament through NeoGAF and it dragged on for months and months and I ended up placing 4th, which of course was the highest placing that received no prizes. Talk about blue balls. We started a couple months after vanilla came out and barely finished before Ultimate was released!

Anyway, I plan on coming to the next local tourney with my new stick and hopefully a bit more offline experience under my belt. And I should be there tonight, I just hope somebody will play Marvel with me. Otherwise I’ll have to talk someone into teaching me SFIV :stuck_out_tongue:


#1079

Heh, shouldn’t be too hard to find someone to teach you SFIV. In fact, you should learn regardless!


#1080

Oh damn we need a bump. Who is hype for SFxT?


#1081

Getting SFxT tonight. Anyone who wants to play it today, I’ll have it by around 7, hopefully.


#1082

I might not have my copy until tomorrow. So I may show up tonight and play some.

[LEFT]First impressions after going through the tutorial and trying out 10 or so characters in trial mode (around 15 trials each): [/LEFT]

[LEFT]-The SF4 characters *look *so similar to their SF4 incarnations but play very different. I feel like I’m going to have to deliberately pick up some characters that aren’t in SF4 so I don’t screw myself over when switching games.[/LEFT]
[LEFT]-To make the above point difficult, the Tekken characters feel SO different (not that this is a bad thing though!). Wave-stepping is weird, especially trying to cancel normals into them. I’m really looking forward to seeing how the pros develop the Tekken characters. [/LEFT]
[LEFT]-Combining links with chain combos feels a little goofy, and I keep expecting to be able to end a chain combo with a non-EX special and accidentally getting launcher instead. Probably a carry-over habit from UMvC3 thinking I can just ABC into special or whatever. [/LEFT]
[LEFT]-Soooo many mechanics to remember, all of which contain the word “cross” so I can’t keep any of them straight. [/LEFT]
[LEFT]-Raven is the only Tekken character I tried that really clicked with me, probably because he has a relatively simple moveset (no stance changes, no wave-stepping) and “feels” more like a SF character. Plus he looks pretty badass. [/LEFT]
[LEFT]-Color customization is a joke. I only looked at Raven but it seemed like almost every attribute had 4 colors: white, black, slightly different white, slightly different black. I look forward to being nickle and dimed for more colors. [/LEFT]

[LEFT]Still a fun game though, I just need to pick a couple new characters and really focus on them. Right now there are so many unfamiliar characters that I don’t know what to do.[/LEFT]

First fight club with Street Fight x Tekken tonight!

If you have a copy, I’d recommend you bring it. And, seriously, does anyone have a 4-port usb splitter/hub they can bring with? 2v2 would be awesome with 4 players.


#1085

I don’t have one yet but I am gonna order one online.


#1086

I might have my old Rock Band one lying around…

I don’t think I can make this this week though, so you guys are on your own for Thursday.


#1087

That 4-player SFxT action is incredibly intense. We’re gonna try to get it set up for the tournament this weekend, too, if we can get some USB hubs…

This ought to be interesting.


#1088

Scratch that, tournament moved. We don’t want to conflict with another local tournament coming up. We’ll be moving the event to 3/31. Hope to see you guys there!


#1089

Updated the OP with relevant tournament info!


#1090

Going out right now to pick up a USB hub. 4 player sfxt inbound.


#1091

Updated the OP (and bumping this thread) with your unfortunate news…


#1092

So just for anyone on this thread that might not know or is looking for an update. As you may or may not know Game On was burgularized last week and we lost everything needed to make our business run. Fortunately the D’bags were caught and we are getting some of our equiptment back. We will still have to replace alot of stuff but we are in the process of doing so right now. I have posted updates on our FaceBook page and we are looking for feedback on the thoughts of re-opening in a Valley Mall location. I know there are a couple downsides to a mall location but I think the benefits will far outwiegh the few downsides. Please leave feedback either on here or our Facebook page to let us know your thoughts. We want to thank everyone again for your support through these bad times and hopefully we will come back better and stronger.


#1093

Thanks for the update!

I imagine the lease will be a bit more than where you guys were at before which would mean higher prices for us (not that you were charging a lot before…seriously, I doubt you were making any money off us), but you should get a lot more exposure at the mall than hidden behind Pawn One…

Also, I can swing by the food court and score some great food, haha.

Oh, just saw your Facebook post. That’s nice you negotiated the lease down.


#1094

It looks like Game On will probably not be re-opening, since apparently insurance is not covering the stolen items. Is that it for the Spokane scene? I feel like we’ve been knocked out, and I’m watching those numbers count down next to my character’s bloody portrait…


#1095

What is the point of insurance if it doesn’t help with this? Sad. There is always meetings at people’s houses I guess. Or perhaps at somewhere like SFCC.


#1096

Well, there is Spoklash coming up which should be a decent-sized tournament. But it also looks like there will be some competition at the upcoming Spokane Comicon (May 19th). They’re running Brawl and AE, but if they get enough feedback about it, it looks like they could do Marvel as well. Any Marvel players willing to come out for that?
