At least y'all can take laptops to work. Bring anything other than a cell phone on base and the government has the right to confiscate it, remove the hard drive, analyze it's entire contents, and bill you for the procedure. All in the name of keeping the public safe.

Casuals start generally around 7 or 8 pm, lasts until close at 12 am. Set ups (PS3/Xbox/TVs) are needed, but any extra equipment is fine. Casuals are inside the back room, just walk past the comic section. Purchasing beverages or comics is appreciated by the staff.

http://www.mashharder.com/forums
Held every Thursday
11920 Westheimer Road Houston, TX 77077
(281) 531-9376
Tournament starts at 8:30 pm, lasts until whenever. $5 to enter. Was told by PZ John that the console weeklies will be held on a HDTV & PS3 set up between the SFIV cabinets, also that he won't charge anyone to play on the console during the week.

Abusement Park
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Housto...axpipe=1&__a=5
Private gathering sessions, get to know the people that comes to PZ or the local tournaments and invites may be sent.

Local Tournaments

Test Your Skills Tournament Series - Hosted by Airbrushking
Located at Fun Plex
13700 Beechnut Street
Houston, TX 77083-5997
(281) 530-1302
Go through the center doors and take a left into the stairway. Go up the stairs and go through the corriors to reach the tournament area. Mainly a Smash Brothers series, competition and the amount of people for other games are random. The series is generally held at the first of every month depending on what other tournaments happen through the region at the time. Set ups (PS3/Xbox) are required and the venue fee is waived. No TVs needed as they are supplied by Dugfinn & Xyro for Smash.

Monsters Arcade Tournaments - Hosted by Woofword0
13626 Veterans Memorial Drive
Houston, TX 77014-1053
(281) 397-8511
http://www.monstersarcade.net/
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Housto...e/380893261130
A lan center located at a strip center with a Vietnamese restaurant near it. Various tournaments throughout the month, contains both PS3s & Xboxs. Check the website and Facebook page for tournaments and updates.

Team Metsu
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Housto...&ref=ts&__a=15
A series of tournaments from tournament organizer Jojo Chantra, Team Metsu hosts several tournaments every two months or so for Tekken and SSFIV. Check the Facebook page for any updates on when tournaments will happen.

As for everything else such as Abusement Park, casuals sessions at people's places are generally invite only. Get to know the people that go to the local tournaments and you may get invited eventually. For those that are looking for competition at Friday or Saturday nights, you may have to go to Planet Zero late at night to find anyone that plays, though it's the summer right now and not as many people go, or they may just be strolling at the Bull & Bear bar down the strip center.

Side Note
For everyone that doesn't give a flying shit about SSFIV, there's also Tilt at the Galleria. It's mainly a place where Marvel players go out and play on Friday and Saturday nights. If you want to play Marvel on a weekly basis, it's best to start out here. For Tekken, well I guess you have to look around the PZ cabinet and get to know them before you get to go play with other people. ST/HDR, theres a few people I know of that are looking to find anyone to play the game, such as TexasAce & Hadouken696969. 3S, go to Face as he seems to be the last remaining member of the Stargate generation that would play the game on a consistent basis. Ben is also at PZ almost every day so you may be able to play in the game also if you show up in the afternoons. Other than that, Houston is a casual city now with the last remaining members of the old school generation gone or on life support. It's a former shadow of the stories I heard and what was there.

The most important advice I can give you is to just play or at least find one person in your area that wants to play. You can still get by regionally with a limited amount of people playing casually and it shouldn't be a deterrant to strive further. Leave the drama and the egos out as you all sought out for whatever reason suffices and the amount of salt in this city can suffocate you if you're not careful.


who has been to 1 of these at midnight. is it a lot of ppl for real

this is all done in the back room too apparently. guess ppl brought some small tvs + ps3s

It seems like on the Jan vs Adeel fight the 3rd match doesn't matter, obvious from the fight either Jan was fucking around or Adeel stepped up his game too late.

Akuma got punished too much by missing the double roundhouse or it being blocked.

Holy crap, this guy does some pretty nice combos with Guile. Not sure how effective they are, but they're impressive.



Also the motion for the Flash Kick FADC Sonic Hurricane:

More videos: Daigo (Guile) vs Alex Valle (Ryu)

Video 1:


Video 2:


I was hoping to see how Guile reacts to the jump in Ryu combos, but Daigo does a good job of keeping Ryu away. I'd have to watch these videos a few more times and see if I could even possibly do any of this.

Also if you look up the user levelupseries on Youtube, they're the official runners of the Midwest Championship that just occurred last month and they have all the videos posted up from the team finals and such, so might be some interesting stuff in there.

This is a crazy 5 game fight between Daigo (Guile) and Justin Wong (Rufus). The ending is pretty fucking crucial.
