11-6-10 meet to be at San Franciso State University:
FOR INFO ABOUT THURSDAY MEETS, PLEASE GO HERE:
This event is free and open to… well, everyone who can go.
Take note that Blazblue: Continuum Shift is the game that is primarily played at this event… SUPER is a possibility, but people may need to bring setups specifically for it (either copies of the game or consoles); me, Zakuignited and MaNoel will be on hand in the event that SUPER STREET FIGHTER is played, so don’t worry about showing up without having anyone to play with.

Here is a link to the NorCal thread on DUSTLOOP:
A weekly SUPER STREET FIGHTER meet for friendly games.
Players of all skill levels, sexes, races, religions, sexual orientations, pad or stick preferences, etc. welcomed…
Uh… if you don’t have anything better to do, hang out and play Super with us (or me).
UPDATED on 7-20-10:
We intend to be doing Blazblue: Continuum Shift in addition to Street Fighter during the game’s release… people needn’t worry about the DLC content since I will be getting all of it (the characters, anyway) and dragging my X-Box hard drive with me.
(which, I guess, means that we can potentially do Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 as well since I have that game on the hard drive.
At Eudemonia in Berkeley.
It’s near the BART STATION in downtown Berkeley, so I don’t think it’ll be hard for people to make it…
Here’s the actual address:
2154 University Avenue, Berkeley, CA
Here’s a map with detailed directions:
Essentially, you walk from the BART station until you see a McDonalds, turn right at the Mickey D’s and then EU should be on your right-hand side…

UPDATED on 7-20-10
Every Saturday from 3-10PM
But, that’s not to say that we can’t do it on Sunday as well… I just might not be able to make it; if it’s Saturday, then it’s for sure for me…
Also, I’ll show up even if no one goes (as a means to encourage people to know that there will be someone who is always there anyway… I can always just hit training mode if no one shows up, really).
THAT SAID, feel free to show up earlier (much earlier) or stay later (much later)…
It’s flexible, but I will personally be around during the stated time.
EU is one of those internet cafe places where you have to pay to use stuff… so…
Yeah, playing here will not be free…
There are 4 consoles in the shop in total, 3 of which have online capability.
SUGGESTED ITEMS TO BE BROUGHT:
If you have a copy of SUPER, please be sure to bring it; I will be bringing my own copy, but that is only good for ONE console.
That said, bringing your own pads or sticks is also recommended; they have controllers and a broken TE stick to rent out at the place (for somewhere around $2 an hour), but you will have to give collateral (such as a California state ID) in order to rent these items.
I will be bringing my SUPER TE stick and will be willing to share, but it’s only 1 stick, so we’ll be short in the event 2 people prefer using sticks…
So, if you can bring items, then by all means do so as it will help…
UPDATED on 7-24-10
PLEASE BE SURE TO BRING HARD DRIVES AND WHATEVER ELSE PEOPLE MIGHT THINK WE MIGHT NEED; we surprisingly ran out of copies of SUPER this week, so to allay future mishaps, people should drag their own games and whatever with them.
I actually now possess 2 MADCATZ TOURNAMENT EDITION STICKS and one SE Madcatz stick… so… if people don’t have X-Boxes, no need to worry about sticks since I feel like I have enough to accommodate non-X-box people… that being said, the TE sticks are fist-come, first-serve with regards to which game the sticks will be on (meaning that 1 of them is already on hold for SUPER STREET FIGHTER, leaving only 1 TE and 1 SE for BLAZBLUE… meaning that BLAZBLUE players will likely have to bring at least 1 TE with them if they don’t wanna use the kinda lame SE stick).
I’ll maybe consider getting another stick in the future, but I’m not sure yet (as I want to use that money on other things… like movies).
CURRENTLY, the sorted out scheme for people who have to pay is this:
And here’s the MINIMUM with regards to how many people should be paying:
If people are to do payment pools, the best approach to this is EARLY CHECK IN during the week in order to establish WHO is going to go and HOW MUCH each person will pay… an example of money pooling looks like this:
FOR PEOPLE WHO INTEND TO BRING CARS AND ARE IN NEED OF PARKING:
