You may or may not have heard, but I have a little project going on at the moment....
In short, I have aquired all the joystick and button stuff from the closure of Funland, and am slowly working towards building an arcade/ gamernet cafe (I think that summarises it), and have been testing the waters of support by holding Saturday sessions at the place, mainly on KOF13. I orginally only bought the machines to do up and sell on, but when youre surrounded by arcade machines, you cant help but feel that maybe it deserves one last shot....
Ive been speaking to Gunsmith a bit lately (or HOOD RAT as I call him), who has been giving me some feedback from people here, for which I am grateful, and here to address.
For the people who feel that the sessions were a) kept under wraps or b) old skool or neo empire people only, I apologise. You see, I really didn't think it would be gathering the momentum that it has been. At first, it was just myself and Bullet Proof from Neo Empire just gauging interest from the people we know and were able to reach out to in person. It was NEVER the intention to create some sort of elitist club managed through politics. Politics SUCK, and the theme of this place is that its being built by players FOR players. Here, you have a voice and I welcome your input. KOF hasn't been big in this country properly since 98, so to see it getting love now is indeed a good thing. Im all about people just playing games and having fun, I mean, this is what its about, right?
In short, Im here to say that any and all of you are welcome here, and I hope to keep meeting new faces as I have been this last month.
If you have any questions, post them and I'll do my best to answer asap. There is so much I've probably left out, so fire away!
Hope to see you all soon
