well, i live in GR. DantesInferno is also here, but i haven't heard back from him yet.

i don't know exactly how hosting would work. i live with my parents, and we just moved, so doesn't seem like they would be particularly fond of a bunch of unknown shmupos hanging around playing games.

as far as cabs in the city. there was a strikers at a bowling alley and a 1942 at an ice rink, and as far as i have seen thats all.

send me a pm or post here if you might be interested. maybe something can be arranged.

i should note that i don't have a cab, supergun, or rgb monitor, so if a meet happens and we don't have the equipment, it will go further unused. so in summary, please help.

As I mentioned in the other thread, I'd be in for a non-UP Michigan shmupmeet. But based on other threads (Midwest and Ohio), I don't think we have enough people close enough to each other to do anything. Us Midwesterners take great pride in our vast fields of corn and nothingness, but it sure isn't conducive to a bunch of internet weirdoes playing games together.

And given that I live in ratty little apartment and do most of my shmupping in MAME on a 5 year old PC, I'm in no position to host anything or bring anything of value to the table.

actually though, if we can keep it small and controlled. i might be able to provide the venue (i.e. my room and games), pending permission of course. the thing is, it would probably be a one day thing, as i wouldn't be able to provide accomodations for any attendees.

I am in the Detroit area west side. Around the Jeffries (I96) and southfield (M39) freeways. I usually have a couple friends every other weekend or so. I have pretty much every system from the NES to current as well as import PS2 and Saturn and can support import play on all systems via pass thru or boot discs. I can also accomidate for Tate. I guess it would be kind of wierd haveing a bunch of people over with whom I've never met or known but then it would be fun to play Twinkle Star Sprites with some new people.

Wow, there's a lot more people in Michigan than I thought. It would be cool if something could be put together, but it doesn't seem like many people have the accommodations though.

so is anyone interested in hanging out sometime? Like a Saturday night? There are a couple of folks here who have been to my home - looking to hang out with some other folks.

If any of the local Detroit area people are interested I might host something.

Sorry I am only set up for console gameplay, though I can support all consoles from NES to Wii with everything in between(exept Japan 360 - no Senko no Ronde :( )

Anyways I will be having a few folks over on Saturday 1-20-07. Time would likely be from around 5-6pm to whenever. We usually play any shooties as well as some quality time with some Twinkle Star Sprites. If anyone is interested please PM me and let me know.

Short notice. 'Hope captain ahar, Davey, Dale, ROBOTRON, and all them got some PMs. More the better?

I should like...bring beer....or something :P







Edit:
That was fun. Thank you Twinkle Star Sprites, for making me afraid of farm animals, Pandas, and twins.
