You're the Makoto player, right? I'm not into shmups really, but if we want to get a small 3S/SSF2X scene going maybe we should come up with some sort of a meetup plan. I'm the guy who usually picks Sean. I would be down casual matches, or even for some sort of round robin league or whatever. Just something more concrete than random bouts.


Yeah, that was me. Sounds good. I'm usually on the shmup cabs but if there's a group of people playing fighters or an event like what you mention I'll definitely join in. Not sure how much I'll get into 3S/SSF2X but want to try both more. And the other fighters will change over time too. Could have a regular day in the week(or month) for fighting game meetups, maybe wednesdays or sat/sun? Also the arcade appears to have the least visitors on fridays.

Unrelated I've played Dariusburst a whole bunch because of testing the PC version and completing CS mode so if anyone sees me there and wants to learn the game or play coop just ask me. Maybe the cab will have Chronicle mode unlocked at some point too and that will be fun for co-op.

I'm going to vote for Sundays because I actually live in Tampere and need to come there by bus. So, how about every other Sunday starting from next week?

Works for me. That's a long trip, yeah.. I live pretty close so can cycle there in 75min. It's nice that the place is close to a train station though.

Alright, it's settled then. Every other Sunday starting from the 18th of this month from 2PM to 7PM is Third Strike Club @ Sugoi.

Tell everyone you know who plays 3S to show up!

EDIT: On second thought let's just concentrate on 3S for now.

Great flyer! Something came up so I won't be able to make it on 11.09. But should be able to join in the future. I noticed the event has been spread around in some fighting game communities. Hope a lot of people show up!

We're planning a small shmupmeet at sugoi with the group involved in making Final Boss. If we get exact dates I'll post it here so others can join in. There's a lot of great finnish STG players and it would be awesome to have a proper meet. IIRC any previous attempts in the past 5 years have fallen short. If you like arcade STGs and want to support finland having a high quality place for them (with a bunch of other rarities) then sugoi is really important.

edit: thing was cancelled, can make it on 11.09

Awesome.

The meet will be on 09.10. So 4 weeks from now. I'll try to make a flyer and post more details closer to the time (like where/when we gather if not going to sugoi independently).

Third Strike Kerho's first meeting was a fun. I had a blast. Three machines with 3S side by side was truly a sight to behold, and something I thought I'd never see in this country. Can't wait for the next meeting!

First shmupmeet at sugoi is happening in a week on the 9th.

Final boss group is meeting up in central helsinki at 11 in the morning. Probably Kamppi or the central railway station. We'll eat somewhere and should be at Sugoi at 1PM. The arcade is open until at least 7PM and it's a 5 minute walk from the Malmi railway station. nem gave us the chance to request games to be installed for the meet so the shmup lineup will change along with a couple other surprises (Ketsui and Dariusburst will remain). 3rd strike club will be going on at the same time with the above 3-4 cabs, should be a great sunday!

If you want to join us from the central or need help with directions to the arcade then PM me or contact elsewhere. I recommend eating well or at least taking some snacks, 6hrs is a long time. You can buy soft/energy drinks from the counter but that's about it.

Great time and there were a ton of games to try out. Let's try to do this again at least once a year.

nem set up the place perfectly and installed even more shmups than we asked for. So it's up to the players/organizers to make further use of the space and plan better events. Maybe multiple day meets or taking into account other events that bring people around Helsinki.

I charged a full admission fee for Xeno :oops:

Remind me the next time you're by and we'll square of the difference.

Thanks to TMallu for the loaning of games!

The day was a great time. Thanks to everyone who showed up and special thanks to nem for the place and Zaarock for being our personal guide in the depths of Helsinki. See you all again, hopefully!

Pac-Man Battle Royale is the best game.

As eebro said, thanks to everyone who was able to make it there! Special thanks for nem for arranging an awesome array of games (as well as letting us to stay so late) and Zaarock for stopping us from getting lost. This trip was quite exhausting but totally worth it. I'm already kinda itching for another visit someday in the unforeseeable future.

Here is a low quality highlight reel I whipped up during my trip back home, enjoy if you can: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mb1v1Ln-Eyw

I finally invested in an EPROM programmer (long overdue!), which means:

Ketsui now saves scores. Thanks to austere for the hack!

Metal Slug 2 is now TURBO. Thanks to trap15 and system11!
