Ok time to start a new thread! Looking to start a "shooting club" where folks can get together and play some shooties! A couple of us already get together about every other week right now.

Perhaps we can meet monthly if possible. We can even move it around from other peoples homes as well.

Lets try to get something together. Post here if interested!

Code:
My Mission:
•to unite people of the Great Lakes region that share a common interest of shooting video games and video games in general.
•to welcome all people equally — no exclusivity, open to all
•to offer an environment where everyone can feel comfortable and have a good time.
•to create everlasting fellowship — even beyond video game.

#7)March 6, 2010 - Complete

#8)May 1, 2010 - Complete

#9)TBA


Every other week or so, excluding holidays and such, several of us get together and hang out. Video games is our backdrop but we sometimes do things such as dine out, shop, and what have you as anyone else would do among friends.

IF ever anyone would like to participate and hang out, please, please feel free to contact me at my email Jazz90sc@yahoo.com , put shmups in the subject line, or send a PM - those go to my email too, and I will promptly get in touch to touch base on any issues that may arise.

It is with deep regret that I am editing this part of the post :cry:
fellowship friend, Kinn aka ROBOTRON, is no longer with us, may he rest in peace. He will be missed by us all… For years, he had battled health issues, he will hurt no more as he is in a better place.
Every Friday night, ROBOTRON host FNG aka Friday Night Gaming.

FNG website
Please PM ROBOTRON or contact him through the FNG site for information regarding FNG as he will be able to give the informations regarding the FNG arrangements.


If anyone is considering having a gathering centered around video games and gaming culture, please let us know of your intentions and hopefully we can all make each others friendship! I always love to make friends and have made many friends here already! Divided we fall, united we stand. What we need is solidarity!

Thank You! Keep on game playing!

I could have a decent amount of people over in my basement. It would require some setting up and cleaning though. It would be pretty shway though, I have a billiards table for those not playing and want to relax. If it is a small gathering we can just chill in my room since all my consoles are in there. You know me SR, I am down for what ever.

Billiards table. I like the way that man thinks.

Whoever runs it, just set a date longer than like, 2 days before so I can arrange to actually stay longer than 3 hours this time.



Hopefully I won't get laid-out in Star Sprites so hard next time.

Dude, Senko no Ronde. Whatever month that goes down, the thing is gonna be a frikkin' party!

As long as it stays in SE Michigan I should be able to come. My collection is pretty dismal though, so there isn't really much I can bring.

I'd love to go but I'd need to know when and where. Somebody send out some PM's to the Michiganians when a date and place is pinned down.

Either works for me. 2/17 is 6 days from now and 3/3 is 20 days from now. Lets get this together.

My place and Ayanami's place are literally a mile apart so we'll be gathering in the SE Michigan area Detroit suburbs.

17th won't work for me, but if we're going to be doing this regularly, missing this one isn't a big deal.

Pretty much I am free on a biweekly period as far as the weekend goes. Which I am sure is the case for Sonic R as well. So Feb 17th, March 3rd, March 17th, March 31st and so on. Sounds like March 3rd is more the day of choice. Any objections? We gather every other saturday as it is to play games already, but it would be nice to know when more than say 6 people are coming to make proper preperations. If people want to stop by on Feb 17th, I don't see any problem with that.

Do March 3rd then. We like manpower. Manpower is good.

Should somebody volunteer to PM the remaining in the old MI thread and Ohio?

Good Question. I have a large basement that can accommadate a large amount of people. And it does have the billiards table, table soccer, and a bar. It is far from perfect though. It needs to be cleaned up, but that should not be too big of a deal. The TV down there while large can not be in TATE, so I would have to pull another TV down there. Number 1 issue is seating, I don't really have any couch situation going on down there. It would pretty much be folding chairs and bar stools. :?

Other than all of that, should not be too difficult to fix up my place for a gathering.

Sonic R, are we getting together this Saturday along with Kccttzj and Zero Otaku? If so we can talk about it more then.

I don't know what are on those collections you have. I am sorta interested in the Taito Legends and Capcom Collections you have. Other than that I believe Sonic R and I have every thing ya got. Except for that R-Type Deluxe, I don't know if Sonic R or Zero Otaku have that one.

If you have an open flat wall and something to use as a stand, I got a projector I could bring down. It doesn't output sound though, so if anybody's sitting on a R-L input stereo solution that would make it work.

We'd be playing on THE LARGEST TATE IN THE WORLD

table soccer

:!::!: oh hell yes. If you claim to be hot shit in that, we gotta play a few.

I got a few folding chairs and many bean bag chairs if I should bring 'em down.

Looks like we are set for March 3rd at Ayanami's place! I got a couple of chairs I can bring too. Will bring food (pizza, deli tray).

Ayanami will have to hook up the PM's for directions to his place.

Any special request for games to play? I can look through my stuff and bring anything that may be requested.

@ Ayanami - Yeah we'll get together this weekend for the usual gig. We can discuss details then.

@Dale - bring those compalations collections(Taito, Capcom), we haven't got those and would be interested in whats on them!

Alright sounds good I'll bring the collections and my favirit controllers and beverages. Is it okay if I bring Andylee he's a freind of mine who is also very into games, I'm not sure if he can make but if he can is alright if he comes, he's a pretty cool guy and quite nice.

Also if anyone owns the game SCAT for NES I'd love to play that co-op with someone, so if anyone has that game it would be nice if they brought that.

EDIT: I kinda wanted to try Dodonpachi Daioujou and ESPgaluda for PS2 so if someone could bring those as well it would be much appreciated.

Pretty sure that Zero and I can make it. Is there anything you'd want us to bring. I know we have a few things not mentioned. Twinkle Star Sprites for sure. We'll probably talk to you guys about it this weekend, if all goes well. :)

@Dale I think we all have the games that you mentioned, so they'll be there.

What about non-shmups? If there's interest I could bring Rakugaki Showtime and Bishi Bashi Special, both are chock full of wacky multiplayer mayhem.

Those games sound like fun, I think certaint other games might be more workable for a party we should probaly have a few of those at hand too. But I think we should focus mostly on shmups.

I have a few four player Dreamcast games and a 4-player multitap for (slim)PS2, if anyone wants me to bring those just ask.

We all like shmups, so I agree we should mostly stick with those. However, I also think this could be a good time to try out some other lesser-known games that you might not get to play normally. I'm certainly not trying to turn this into a Smash Bros. Melee tournament or anything. ;)

Dale, I have damn near every thing on Dreamcast that is worth having. What do you have? I may have it.

I also have ESP Galuda so no need to bring that. I have a computer with MAME on it of course with at least 100 shooters. (Moniter can easily be TATEd)

Davey, I am down for the games you mentioned and I am up for multiplayer games besides shooters. If all goes well I will have at least 2 or 3 TVs down stairs for the get together. I will PM every body with directions soon, give me a little time. Not all that great with directions my self.
