EDIT: This will be a FREE tournnament! Okay, here it is. April 29th @ 6PM at the residence of the owner of sacgaming.org. Go the link below to register with sacgaming.org and add geminate to your My Space friends list for more detailed info. Right now we are definitely having Soul Calibur 3 and Mario Kart: Double Dash in the roster of games to play. However, I am a huge Street Fighter nut, and we will most likely also have some other fighting games, which include: Capcom vs SNK 2, Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike, Marvel vs Capcom 2, and Super Smash Bros. The owner said we can have any of these games, as long as there is a demand for them. So make sure you RSVP and sacgaming.org and tell us what u want to play.
BTW, there will be free sodas and snacks, not too mention an 80", and we will also be having gameplay on a 200" big screen TV!

It's too bad events such as these are never organized where I have relocated to. As much as I hate the West Coast sometimes, this is one of the things I most miss from the area.
How could u hate the West Coast? "West side, 'cause you and I know it's the best side." With all the natural disasters and crazy weather going on, California is looking pretty good right now. Although (knock on wood) we're probably due for an earthquake in a couple of years. And I hear what you're saying about competition in a small town. That's why I think Xbox Live is the best thing to happen to gaming since the NES.
And to kristianator, I believe it is about a 2 hour drive almost exactly from San Francisco if that's where you're by. I'm also more into 3rd Stirke than Smash and Mortal Kombat but I thought we could use some variety. Hit me up on live sometime. My gamertag for now is shrtoldman54.

The city also feels like a giant high school when I travel around it. Everybody has their own clique. The car buffs, the jocks, the gangsters, the stoners, etc. I figured that nonsense stopped at high school, but it seems to extend past it in So Cal. It makes meeting new people difficult.
Nobody really played fighters or any twitch games at a level I can relate to during my youth. Oddly enough the people I did hang with played games because my feverish devotion to them rubbed off on them. Once I left, that activity dwindled and turned to booze and the usual stuff. They are still amazed at how I can still happily play games that aren't Halo, GTA, or Madden.
Live is fine until I can't parry properly becasue of a hiccup in my connection. Also since I don't use the mic much, it does lend a touch of isolation sometimes when you're fighting your 20th Ken/Chun-Li match and everyone just abuses Ken's jumping forward and Chun-Li's super pokes.
Don't take that statement of me being any good at 3rd strike. It just means I can use all six buttons with a semblance of proficiency. Though I would kill to see competitive Smash Bros. I've always wanted to see what and how top folks play as.
Oh ya, sorry for derailing the thread some. Um, my Xbox account just expired so if anyone can point me to the least expensive way to get back on I'd gladly meet any of you for online 3rd strike. I still wish to go to a fighting tourney, it's been over 7 years since I've participated or gone to one.

A mean Dudley you say? I hope you can teach me something as well as I tend to favor Dudley as my main character as well. Whenever I get a real Live sub. or hunt down a 2 mo. card.
LET US FIGHT, LIKE GENTLEMAN

Hey dman what's your tag online? I'd like to play you some time on xbl. I use Hugo exclusively so it should be free wins for you:cry:
My Live tag for the next month is shrtoldman54. I've seen a couple people use Hugo pretty well. But for the most part, he's not that great. You need to expand your horizon of character selection. Send me a FR and we'll get some matches in.

And to vietgurl, we are definitely going to play Mario Kart: Double Dash and we might have some Dance Dance Rev, depending on the demand for it. But yeah, this tourny will probably be dominated by fighting games.

Good luck with the tourney OP! hopefully it goes well, and the turnout is good, so then you can put on more of these

That's where you'll find a load of smashers and loads of people who know their stuff when it comes to SSBM tournaments.
It’s very cheap to ship to Canada. Only $3! .

And to Firestorm, I knew about the Smash boards but the people who went (excluding myself and my 2 sons) will probably get demolished with people who visit the Smash boards so I didn't advertise it there.
Although I was kind of dissapointed that no one from CAG showed up or even pretended that they were going to show up and didn't.

any plans on adding Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 on any future tourney setups?
Yeah, we can add any game we want. As long as we have a demand for it and people who want to play actually show up. The group that went to play on Saturday aren't that great at fighters, but they're up for anything. I'm the big fighter guy in the group. The only thing I really play anymore is fighters. I don't have time to go through a GTA game even though I would love to.
And to dude2003, I definitely hear u about driving and gas prices. But maybe someday we'll meet up and I can beat you...er...play u in a game or two.
