Calling all street fighters-
Where are you? Let’s get together and play some games.
Western MA is a no man’s land when it comes to Street Fighter - very few arcades, and none with an assortment of titles nor a staff that keeps the machines in working order. It’s a sad situation. We’ve got to go to Boston, Montreal or NYC to find arcades - which is ok, the competition is there and warrants the drive every blue moon, but not every weekend.
So, the community begins from the ground up. UMASS, Amherst has a Game Hobbyist League. They have regular meetings on Wed and Saturday. The facilities are there to have games going on ps2/xbox...etc - bring your mas sticks or controllers.
The more people who get involved here, the better the competition and the more fun this will be. Casual play is certain, and if the numbers are there, tournaments will follow. But first, we need a head count.
If anybody is out there, please respond. Let us know your general location, and the games that you play
I am in Northampton, MA. I play Super Turbo mostly, but also Third Strike. Alpha 3 is good for old times sake.
