Hey Ryan: is there gonna be set-times for tournaments? Cause I guess we (the staffers) need to know asap, so we can make it to everything!!!!
Now playing a lil bit of every fighting game, here and there.

Um I don't think there are any XI or NGBC machines in chicago (though the Black Hole MIGHT have NGBC).
I haven't played either game though.
Posted 16 February 2006 - 07:39 PM
Probably not, sorry. I don't think very many people would be interested in it, and tracking one down would not be fun.

digimon & syxx: Yeah, that's me. I'll have that costume with me..for what day though is up to when we can pull our gathering together. And where is the Black Hole by the way?
Posted 17 February 2006 - 03:54 AM
Well whatever, I'll probably see you there and I'll ask for a pic then. The black hole is right next to the Cook County Jail. No, I'm serious. I went there once and that was enough.

YES LET'S HEAR IT FOR BROKEN VANESSA
...but I ain't complaining because I love her in 2000.
And damn straight I'm going to bring my console KoF 2k.
NeoGeo Battle Colliseum is pointless since you might as well just get the console version.
KoF XI though...no arcade in Chicago (except the Black Hole, which is a bar/restaurant in Little Mexico...not quite an area to exactly mosey into freely) would have KoF XI, because it's not very much appreciated =/
Not a fan of playing a lot of player in Black Hole in KoF anyway; a lot of them are the masters in cheese. Not my style of playing for KoF.
Syxx: I tried NGBC when it was still in beta at ASI 2005 last March, and I very much tried to like it...and I just couldn't. Unless they changed it since then (which I've heard they did), it wasn't quite worth it.
We need more KoF fans (Because Orochi = Awesome. Just like my username =P)~
Pop 'n Music 12 ~Iroha~ by ACen...let's count how many times we're going to hear the NG Evangelion theme played =/
Posted 17 February 2006 - 11:31 AM
If you like your friends you won't send them to the black hole. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON'T ADVISE ANYONE TO GO TO THE BLACK HOLE.
Are you talkin about the intro song from Evangelion? OK so I like that song. Not because of Evangelion, I don't care too much for that show, I used to be a fan of Megumi Hayashibara and that song is on her CD. I'll be one of those people playing that song a ton I guess hehe. Like if I see that show on TV I'll listen to the intro (even though it's not Megumi) then turn it off hehe. Ah well.
I post on herv for the hentai.
Posted 17 February 2006 - 05:02 PM
QFT. Black Hole is pretty shi++y. I wouldn't say it's because of the Mexi-scrubs, but more like the area it's in and the venue itself...it's pretty nasty. But I have NGBC Syxx, freaking next time you go to Chris's, tell me so I can bring it. AND DON'T HAVE THESE DAMN 5-hour TEKKEN SESSIONS EITHER. Cripes.
And yeah, Pop 'n 12 has the intro theme for Eva, but it's not Megumi (who didn't do the original intro anyway, but she sang a remixed version, and another version with the voice actresses for Asuka and Misato). It's kinda neat because Konami got the original singer (Takahashi Yoko) to re-sing the Pop 'n version of Zankoku na Tenshi no Thesis/Cruel Angel Thesis, and not some crappy cover artist (like Sana).
It also has the Crayon Shinchan theme...which is a winner.
BTW, I'll call you if ASI has DR, and any other SNK games =P

Syxx: Come join our little Herv get together then. I know Maz will be there..Kaz and GEL might be again, dunno yet. I'll be there sans child.
Posted 18 February 2006 - 02:27 AM
Not really interested but thanks, like I said I just visit herv for the hentai. Found this asuka hentai there lol. Oh yeah, that reminds me Chris wanted me to PM him the links hahahaha ****in chris. Ok well I'm out.
P.S. What's wrong with 5 hour tekken sessions!!!???
Sana is ok. I bought one of her cds (the newer one). I wonder if the Akira Yamaoka cd is out yet. Better download it because I'm poor(er) these days.
I can't remember how it goes but I used to watch the show when it was on when I was in Japan.
Posted 18 February 2006 - 02:32 AM
^_________________________^ I want to buy
Posted 18 February 2006 - 04:26 AM
I just heard it'll be out by April; if there's no delays, you know there'll be a bunch of copies floating around on consoles =P
BTW, did you get my IM about your Tekken 5 disc?
Akira Yamaoka's album is out, I hear it's OK. But Sana is fair on her covers.
Posted 18 February 2006 - 08:44 AM
And i guess Slash will be the one used. I didnt know when it got released so i suggested reload, oops. ^^;

Guitar Hero, well I thought about it, and the problem is the game isn't really tournament friendly. It will be hooked up to a TV if people want to play, but with a Guitar Freaks tournament going on already on the arcade, I don't really see a Guitar Hero tourney happening.
I guess you could always use your time playing to have "grudge matches" one on one. :-p
