"MMC East Coast Party - Official Thread" , posted Fri 1 Aug 00:13:post reply


The evil summer semester has ended, so I can finally focus my energies on the important stuff.

With that said, I would like to officially and cordially invite everyone on the board over for a schwingin' shindig. You know the drill: drink a few beers (or non-alcoholic beverages for you underage folk), play a few games, match faces with names... good time had by all, no? So first... here's the specs:

Date: Saturday, August 16th.
Time: You can show up whenever, but I'll have everything set up by 2pm. I'd imagine it will probably end in the wee hours of the morning. :)
Place: Northern Virginia (Check the bottom for specifics)

Games (I'll edit these lists as I think of stuff):
- 3 TVs
- 2 DCs
- 2 PS2s
- 1 GC
- 1 Xbox (collecting dust)
- 1 Saturn
- DC: KoF '98-2k2, Last Blade 2, Garou, MvC2, CvS2, Alpha 3, Third Strike, MvC1, CvS1, Puyo Puyo~n, Ikaruga, Soul Calibur, Super SF2 Turbo
- PS2: GGXX, Tekken Tag, Tekken 4, VF4:Evo, Puzzle Fighter, DDRMax
- GC: F-Zero
- Saturn: XSF, MSF, Vampire Savior, Saturn Bomberman

Things people may want to bring:
- Soul Calibur II (preferably on GC since it's the easiest to play imports on)
- Saturn sticks/pads (for 8-player Saturn Bomberman.. I only have 3)
- Sticks/pads (while I have 2+ controllers for every system, people will wanna use their own stuff... especially sticks for fighting games)
- DDR mats (I only have one that works with any consistency..)
- A Neo or 2 (I've unfortunately had to sell my Neo cart system, so the party will be without one otherwise)
- Anything else you think may amuse a large group

Quick FAQ:

1) Q: Can I bring friends?
A: Yes, you may, but try to keep it to 3 or less. In addition, keep in mind that my friends and I aren't gonna put up with any shit. This is a good-natured get-together and we plan on keeping it that way.

2) Q: If I get tired/wasted, will there be places to sleep?
A: Yes, plenty. I'm gonna have at least 4 extra beds set up for people to crash in and another couple of sleeping bags. Worst case scenario, you guys can bring your own sleeping bags... either way, there will be plenty of room for people to crash.

3) Q: How about food/drinks?
A: There will be PLENTY of alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages. As for food, I was seriously considering making reservations at a local tepenyaki restaurant and we could all go out to eat. The only problem there is that it would be somewhat expensive (~$20 per person), so I don't know if everyone will be down with that. Otherwise, we could just get pizza or fast food or somethin' simple.

RSVP options:

E-mail - ggrant@gmu.edu
AIM - Zangulus100Proof

I'll give you directions to the house from here (I'm not particularly concerned, but I feel kinda odd giving out directions to my parent's home online).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Alrighty... why don't we get an unofficial head count going on this thread, plus people can discuss who's going to bring what and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Sounds interesting (and is much closer than other "MMCafe Meetings" I've heard of)....... but I'm not sure if I can make it to this one either. I don't know... maybe a possibility, though.

Thank you, RugalB. The stuff you're bringing alone will make the party worthwhile. ;) Speaking of which, did you ever find out if that guy you know would be getting that "certain game"?

I don't know, this solution's not as good (at all), but maybe we could set up a MMCafe chat or something for those of us that have Trillian or AIM or whatever. We could hang out all at the same time... just in an "online only" sort of way.

Hey Yashiro, I will most likely be able to come. Just making sure I don't have anything wacky coming up, but 99% I should be able to make it.

Sorry I wasn't able to reply sooner. I just got back from school, and am just now starting to set things back up (Thank you US Air for delaying both of my flights 3 hours and sending my lugage to the other end of the country). While I'm still interested in going, it all depends on whether or not I can get a car for the weekend, so I don't know for sure yet. I should know for sure by the end of the week, so I'll let you know as soon as I can.

Well, based purely on the responses in this thread:

RugalB
Radish
Adon + friend(s)
Mog + friend(s)

Plus I have at least 4 (possibly 6) people coming...

However, there are 5-10 other people who've expressed their interest in past threads who just haven't been on the board since I put up this thread. Sooo... <shrug> We shall see.

Well, if that's the only thing holding you back, I can give you explicit directions (I have a friend who went to MTSU, so I've made the trip to the Nashville/Murfreesboro area several times). That is a pretty long trip for an overnight gig though.

It's about 600 miles... I usually do it in a little under 8 hours including a stop for lunch (do the math... although the speed limit is 65-70 most of the way there).

Quite alright. If I were you, I wouldn't make that trip either. :) It only takes about 3 hours to get to the VA border. However, from there you have to drive all the way from one corner of the state to the other to get to where I am.

Daala: I'll add you to the list. How many peeps are you bringing?

Sano: Just hit me up and I'll get you those directions.

"MMC East Coast Party - Update, etc." , posted Wed 6 Aug 22:45:post reply


General Update:

1) I will be out of town for the next few days, so don't be surprised when I don't answer e-mails, don't show up on IM, and don't spam this thread. ;)

2) We may have a couple of interesting surprises for the party. Don't wanna spoil the fun, so I'll leave it at that.

Zyzyfer: Well, assuming all goes well, I plan on doing this again sometime.

Oroch: If you decide to come, feel free to bring whatever you want. Don't know how much luck you'll have with a OMF2097 tournament, though. :)

EDIT: Thought of something else... if anyone has halfway decent video-capture equipment, PLEASE bring it. I was thinking we could make some vids of our horrible playing ability and share it with the world. (provided we can find a host) I'll definitely have my digital camera and video camera in effect, though, to catch any and all embarassing moments.

Hey guys. Some nonsense just occured with my psychotic landlord and due to me having to find a new place to live relatively quick I won't be able to attend the party.

I was really looking forward to this and I wouldn't back out if it wasn't this serious. It's funny how life can pull the rug out from under you in the next 24 hours.

Well, If you have this party next year I hope to attend. Everybody have extra fun on my behalf! - Sano.

"MMC East Coast Party - Update #2" , posted Sat 9 Aug 12:50post reply


Alrighty, folks... I got a quick break from my weekend getaway, so I'm gonna post a quick list of things I'd like people to bring (Please respond on the thread so people can figure out who's bringing what):

1) Saturn pads/sticks (as many as possible... I'm trying to get some 8-player Saturn Bomberman goin' on)

2) Soul Calibur II (GC if possible, but any system is fine provided that you also bring the system with which to play it...)

3) Video-capture equipment (yes, it's unlikely I'll have much luck here, but I'm gonna put it out there again just in case)

4) Sleeping bags (I'm gonna have several beds/sleeping ready, but I'm not sure how many folks are gonna be crashing here so I figure better safe than sorry)

5) Neo Geo Pocket Colors (this is Radish's thing... trying to trade SvC cards, I believe)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now... a couple of more questions that have been asked:

1) Q: Can I smoke?
A: Not in the house. However, there is a deck right outside from where one of the TVs will be set up where I'll have chairs and ash trays set up. Don't sweat it too hard... I'll be out there with you.

2) Q: What's up with eating?
A: Entirely up to you guys... I'll have snacking-type stuff around, but as for a real meal, I'm still down with tepenyaki if everyone else is. Once I get back in town (late Sunday night), hit me up on IM or by e-mail and let me know what you think. Tepenyaki's fairly expensive (~$20 a person), but no matter what we do, you're gonna need some cash for food.

3) Q: What are the "surprises" that you were referring to?
A: If I told you, they wouldn't be surprises. ^_^

Now... a couple of more questions that have been asked:

1) Q: Can I smoke?
A: Not in the house. However, there is a deck right outside from where one of the TVs will be set up where I'll have chairs and ash trays set up. Don't sweat it too hard... I'll be out there with you.

2) Q: What's up with eating?
A: Entirely up to you guys... I'll have snacking-type stuff around, but as for a real meal, I'm still down with tepenyaki if everyone else is. Once I get back in town (late Sunday night), hit me up on IM or by e-mail and let me know what you think. Tepenyaki's fairly expensive (~$20 a person), but no matter what we do, you're gonna need some cash for food.

3) Q: What are the "surprises" that you were referring to?
A: If I told you, they wouldn't be surprises. ^_^



Hmmm if someone has something that could split RCA input (so one goes to the tv and one to my PC) I could bring a small computer I have set up to capture movies. It'd be a last ditch solution but I'm willing to do it.

Also put me down for one Saturn pad.


EDIT: If we go with my PC and the spliter I have one RCA extension cable so we'd need another one of those too.

And also what's Tepenyaki?

Alrighty, folks... I got a quick break from my weekend getaway, so I'm gonna post a quick list of things I'd like people to bring (Please respond on the thread so people can figure out who's bringing what):

1) Saturn pads/sticks (as many as possible... I'm trying to get some 8-player Saturn Bomberman goin' on)

2) Soul Calibur II (GC if possible, but any system is fine provided that you also bring the system with which to play it...)

3) Video-capture equipment (yes, it's unlikely I'll have much luck here, but I'm gonna put it out there again just in case)

4) Sleeping bags (I'm gonna have several beds/sleeping ready, but I'm not sure how many folks are gonna be crashing here so I figure better safe than sorry)

Radish, if you bring the NGP link cable, I'll gladly play you and trade cards... I still need Alex, Tabasa, and Chizuru; Chizuru and Tabasa can only be obtained through "vs" play, so maybe I'll finally get them. Teppanyaki is meat cooked on a teppan, it's a sort of griddle.

Oroch, yeah, I'll be bringing both hyper Samurai games, and a lot of other stuff...

Edit: I know I've asked you this before, Yashiro, but I forget; it'll be okay if we turn one of your T.V.s on its side, correct?

After discussing it a bit at Otakon, I think Rugal may have talked me into coming down. I'm not 100% sure I can make time or make the trip yet, but if I do, I'll be bringing at least one friend.

More details on what I can bring when I get closer to finding out how likely it is that I'll make it...

Tepenyaki is a style of cooking food. In general, I'm referring to a Japanese steakhouse.

I've pretty much already decided that I'm just gonna turn one of the TVs over to you, Rugal, to do with as you please. So the answer is yes. :)

I'll try to be available on AIM as much as possible over the next week and I'll be checking my e-mail several times a day.

Adon + Grave: Hope you can make it, but I'll understand if you can't. Just lemme know what's going on.

"Important notice (MAJOR EDIT)" , posted Mon 11 Aug 21:14:post reply


Major notice for those coming from all points north of Springfield:

Checked VDOT's website (Link Here) and the shutdown will actually be on I-95 NORTH from 8PM until 10AM Sat. and Sun. morning. They will have a detour set up, but it's going to add about 45 mins. to people's drives.

This puts a serious crimp in a lot of folks plans. Naturally, people will be welcome to stay here to avoid the nuisance.

Daala: I'll e-mail you...

Hey can you email me some directions ( daala_2000@yahoo.com)

I hate the mixing bowl, what a nightmare! so I take 395 now, 495 exit is a 40min wait.

Sorry if I missed anyone at Otakon, I never got to see the game room this year.

"MMC East Coast Party - Final Countdown" , posted Wed 13 Aug 12:56post reply


Alrighty, folks... just 3 days remain. Anyone who plans on attending needs to contact me ASAP for directions and what not.

A couple of quick notes:

1) If anyone has any issues/problems at the party, please let me know and I'll do what I can to help. Obviously, there will be some things out of my control, but I don't want anyone to not enjoy themselves because of something minor that could have been fixed.

2) Due to the limited amount of time/space, not everything people are going to want to play will get played. We simply have too many diverse interests. However, I will do what I can to make sure all of the major stuff gets some time (and by major stuff, I mean things we all tend to like/discuss on the board... 2D fighting games, party games, puzzle games, shooters, etc.).

3) I know I probably don't need to tell most of you this because you're all decent human beings wise in the ways of ethics and common sense, but PLEASE be respectful of the house. It isn't mine and if I ever wanna use it again for another get-together, things simply can't be destroyed/stolen.

As always, feel free to ask questions, make suggestions, etc. on this thread or track me down on AIM/E-mail.

Sigh. I'm not going to be able to make it down.

I always knew one of my friends wouldn't be able to make it, he even knew that last weekend, so that's a non-factor. And he's reading this right now, and I'm 100% sure of it, so GET A DAMN ACCOUNT, BOY! Ha.

Anyway, another friend was possibly able to go, but I'm just not going to be able to make it myself. I've got too much left to do here before I leave for college. I just narrowly escaped jury duty, at least...

I wish I could make it down, but hell, maybe next summer there'll be another gathering! And, on the upside, at least my travel money goes to that reasonably priced NG home system I've been wanting to buy...

My interntet/cable is down no thanks to some furry animal chewing on the wires. TBE, were you chewing on my wires again? outside. I am at the University now, so being online is limited. I should be going. My status with this job is questionable, but I don't have to do anything for them on Saturday. Can you email me some directions/ address to my email

I'll be there unless something incredibly unexpected comes up.

Just wondering if anyone has a NGPC link cable. I know a store where I can still pick one up if no one does, but I don't want to buy one if I don't have to.

Radish, get that NGP Link cable. I used to have one, but I can't find it; if you do, I'll trade some cards with you, etc.

Again, does anybody have any requests in particular?

Edit: Would anybody be up for some Super Dodgeball? And could I count on people giving any of my weird stuff a shot? ;D

Address a couple of questions..

I need several Saturn pads (6 to be precise), so bring whatever you can... actually, if anyone has a Saturn Multi-tap, I could use one of those two. I've only been able to find one of mine.

NGPC Link Cable: One of the peeps coming with me may have one... lemme check and get back to you.

quote:

As long as you bring Silvergun (I don't particularly care, but I'm sure there will be a few peeps who want to see/play it), Magician Lord (so I can finally see the last boss), Buriki One, and the two 3D SS games, I'll be more than satisfied.

Count me in on some Super Dodgeball... though at some point we're gonna have to whip out Windjammers... ;)

Howdy, folks... one day to go and wouldn't you know it, I'm sick. Not on death's door or anything (the party's still on), but sick enough that it's really putting a cramp in my style. I've been on antibiotics for a couple of days so I'm contagion-free, but I would recommend against drinking from my cup or doing any kissing "with tongues". ;)

Anywho, to the real point of this message: party is still on and I will leave my cell phone number here in case anyone gets lost or has any last second questions... though I'll have it turned off most of tonight (seeing Freddy vs. Jason).

Cell: (703) Eight Five One - Zero Five Six Six (up yours, telemarketers!!) Prank me and you'll pay the price. ;)
