Another tournament coming up on SUNDAY, December 11th (@ 5pm).

I'll just be focusing on GG and MB for now, but we'll still run casuals for other stuff.

$5 for everything again, too. Hope to see you guys there, we'll run these every other week.

I just got v1.07 and will be installing it on Thursday. So we should have that version for the tournament.

This upcoming Sunday, January 8th, is our next tournament.

I will be bringing my PS3 and PS2 in the likely event that we don't have GGAC working yet. If anybody can bring a PS2 joystick for us to use, that would be fantastic. Also, I'll be bringing in my copy of BlazBlue CS Extend. I'm not planning on a tournament for it, but if we want to run one, that would be cool. If not, we can still run casuals.

Don't forget that West Toast XV is coming up soon! I hope to see you all there. After West Toast I really plan on pushing these regular airdasher tournaments back into full swing. I've seen a bunch of new faces lately, all excited about the airdasher scene.

One last thing: For tournaments in the future (not next week's and not West Toast), I was thinking of having a sort of fundraiser for new games. With the current price of games (SF4 2012 patch = $10,000 for two players, TTT2 = $18,000 plus operator pays, etc.) airdashers have become a low priority in the arcade, and the only way we're going to get new games is if we all pitch in as a scene to get it. So, I propose that when we run airdasher tournaments I take a dollar from each entry and put it into a pool. That pool money will go towards purchasing a new game.

Here's a list of upcoming new airdasher arcade games to think about:
BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend
Arcana Heart 3
Under Night In-Birth
Persona 4 Fighter
Deamon Bride Additional Gain

Personally, I'd prefer if we got a game that is not out on console at all. We can all play BlazBlue now, but we won't get a shot at some of those other games for years. There's also the rumor of BlazBlue 3 in the works (November 2012?). If I had to vote, I'd vote for Under Night In-Birth.

Post a message here, or PM me and let me know what you guys think.

12th: Ren [Makoto]
16th: Plectrum
16th: Diozyros [Tsubaki]
16th: Shazam
16th: Grean Tea Lava

It was great seeing everybody again! There were a ton of new faces, too!

So, I'm still planning on doing that fundraiser in the future. We'll be taking $1 from the pot for each airdasher game; each dollar will be collected in a pool that will go towards purchasing a new airdasher arcade board.

I'm going to have us take a vote, but it will be a little subjective. I'm only really going to count people who show up to tournaments or regularly play at the arcade. If some random guy who's never been to the arcade and won't come if we got a new game votes, his vote shouldn't really matter.

So, here's the games I'm recommending:
BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend:
Pros: It would be great to have an arcade board for this game and get more people interested in it.
Cons: I would really prefer if we got a board for a game that is not out/won't come out for console. There's some games out there that we wouldn't see for years unless we got the arcade board.

Arcana Heart 3:
Pros: The game already has a good following, and it matches well with some of the other games we've got. This game is also cheaper than the others, and we'd be able to get it faster than most.
Cons: Again, it would be nice if we didn't get a board for a game that's already out.

Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena: (http://andriasang.com/objmmr/persona_4_ultimate/)
Pros: This is a new fighter that is made by Arc System Works and Atlus, so it goes well with Guilty and BlazBlue. The game has name recognition and a lot of people like the Persona series.
Cons: Arc has not always made the best choices when it comes to team-ups (i.e. Arc + Capcom = Sengoku Basara X). Make sure you check out the system mechanics of this game before you see if it's a good game; don't just think, "Persona is awesome, Arc is awesome, it's like peanut butter and jelly!"

Under Night In-Birth: (http://inbirth.info/index.html)
Pros: This is a new HD fighter by Ecole, the makers of Melty Blood. It looks really nice, graphically. Personally, I really like when a company starts a brand new franchise, it's a risky move, but it's nice to have that fresh start.
Cons: A lot of people don't like Melty Blood's "simplistic style". I'm not sure how much of that is carrying over into UNIB, but it seems to be an "HD Melty."

Daemon Bride: Additional Gain: (http://www.examu.co.jp/dmb/)
Pros: Damon Bride is a fighting game made by Examu, the makers of Arcana Heart. It has a really cool art style and a unique "Angels vs. Demons" motif. This is an update to the original which came out in 2009, so this update is something over 2 years in the making, giving it some promise. The original was not designed for HD, but the new update is for the Taito X2 system and is definitely HD compatible. This game DOES NOT have an all female under-age cast like Arcana Heart; most of the characters are male (This may or may not be a benefit =P).
Cons: The original Daemon Bride has been known to not be very good in terms of gameplay.

I will be taking $1 from each entry's pot and adding it to a pool to pay for Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena. If for some reason we can't get P4U (i.e. it's NESiCA x Live exclusive) we will got for Under Night In-Birth.
