Ok, this area is dead as far as I know, but, we have 2 new arcades opening, one shows real promise if it gets in a couple more fighters (Louisiana Boardwalk IslandFun). This city is so huge, that there has to be at least a handful of casual players, but I have no idea of a way to rangle them together.
I figure it’s worth a try, I’ve met a couple of people that either played Tekken Tag or something that seemed like they really would like to get better, but they always ran off before I could get a name, and I feel a little weird asking for info/asking them to take mine. I figure if I can get maybe 2 more people and bring my rig to a net cafe/introduce them to SRK.com, that maybe I can start a little scene here.
The city has many college’s, LSUS/Southern/Centenary/Bibsy and Ruston is 40 mintues away (LA TECH/Grambling), someone said I should try and start there, but I’m not in college, how would you go about searching thru a campus? Flyers? No college’s have local internet boards that I know of.
All and all, I feel that trying to get a small scene going isn’t all that hard, and worth a shot in a city thats really big. I myself had no idea of srk.com when I got into Marvel in Monroe where there was a pretty big scene. I doubt they did either.
Your thoughts? Ideas?
EDIT: I also would have everything needed for gaming, (minus 1 dreamcast converter for PS controls)
