ITT: what's you're local fighting game scene like?
Utahbro here, its just Smash and Street Fighter. I like KI, NRS games and am trying to get into Tekken and Anime fighters, so only having a scene for smash and sf is frustrating beyond belief.
>tfw no local scene anymore
Rhode Islandfag here, used to be a scene a few years ago, but as far as I've seen it's gone entirely silent. During the peak we had basically everything from SF to Smash to Tekken to mahvel to MK to SoulCal and even Arcana Hearts. Nowadays the closest scene I've found is somewhere in Boston.
VT here, pretty sure it's just melee and sm4sh for our scene
I've never looked into the local scene since I'm still really new and not good at any games in the genre. Are local scenes usually pretty supportive? Moreso than online lobbies?
Upstate NY. We'll get shit in Albany from time to time but folks would sooner just go to the city.
Big stuff gets play with the occasional surprise dead game.
Minnesota here, there's almost nothing for Street Fighter.
It's mostly just Smash and BlazBlue.
What's a good state to play some Street Fighter?
I live in georgia. It seems like every scene is anime fighters or smash, but the moment tournament time comes up EVERYONE is suddenly a SF and marvel master and willing to play hundreds of matches. I still cannot figure out where the fuck these faggots are hiding
Utah, huh? Is it a pretty cool state overall?
Doesn't it cost a fortune to live in California? Much like Ney York City?
How difficult would it be to try to start my own local scene?
>Entire scene is just Street Fighter
I will never ever understand why people like Street Fighter. It's just so fucking bland and lifeless. Can someone explain why people find any of the characters interesting at all?
Utah is a damn nice state. As far as gaming we actually have a lot going here. Sf and smash are big here and other games are played to. Ive heard we might have halo and dota scrimms here.
/v/'s biggest complaint about the FGC is racist shit and the community playing "bad" games but with side tourneys and shit like this :
at Animevo I really can't see any room to complain.
I TOTALLY agree. Sf is bland, slow, and boring as fuck. But its popular because its babbies 1st fighting game. It builds fundamentals and is a good entry point for new fighting game players but it should be abandoned for better games as soon as you get good.
As for me, I prefer SF over anime fighters like Xrd, BlazBlue, ect.
I don't find it bland and lifeless at all.
i live in Los Angeles but i have never had the motivation to attend a local.
maybe when SF5 drops i'll start going to some.
It doesn't help that i don't have a job or a car to get around.
Because despite the blandness, it's got the best balance in a fighting game to date, which is quite a feat with a roster of its size.
Also, it's got loads of possibilities. Many other games turn into one-sided smackdowns at the drop of a hat, but SF generally tends to have a lot of back and forth, which is good for a fight. Beyond that, the characters themselves have many different fighting styles that lead to interesting matchups. Finally, it has simple enough mechanics to understand, but it still takes a long time to master them to the point that you can pull them off consistently under pressure.
Galloping Ghost is a few miles out from me and there is a bit of a scene there if Im not mistaken.
I might go out there soon and play some MK
That's something that I just can't get into with anime fighters, I've gotten to used to the neutral game of SF4.
Well, there are some local game stores but they're the ones that mostly play BlazBlue and rarely SF4. Last time I was there they told me that if I wanted to I could bring in some monitors and set up a table or two for SF players.
>Bought a stick
>No way to put in a standard octagonal gate
>The only octagonal gate that can be put in without drilling a bunch of shit is always out of stock
Toronto, very nice.
I'm waiting for SFV to come out, so I've been dropping by the USF4 locals.
Like, 20 or so people show up every week. Real friendly atmosphere.
Hate the fuck out of this place
