:O a book?  Why would you turn to that ancient technology? lol anyway, last time I read a book was about a week ago, forgot the name but it's about the philosophy of music and why people need it to function similar to why people need human interaction. 


Why is all rap music club music now?  Gangstas wit Glowstix :D

^ I think my most memorable childhood memory is jumping off the roof with my cousin and brother onto an old mattress, and my cousin telling us to land on our shoulder/upper arm because he went ice skating the weekend before and someone told him to fall like that.  Gawd we were stupid.

The reason I keep coming back to fanime is to meet people, this con by far has the most friendly environment out of all the cons I've been to, you could be sitting against the glass railing just doing nothing but watching the cosplayers walk by and someone will walk up to you and start talking to you.  Also, as previously stated the gaming/arcade room is an easy place to meet a lot of people.  and yeah late night is awesome; thats usually where i have the most fun :P  And if this is your first con (cant remember if you posted it or not) you'll find its a lot easier to talk at a con, I havent really figured out why; probably something about being with like minded people.

depending on the big you're talking about Faust/Dr. Baldhead from Guilty Gear, can never have enough of him :P

Because it could be counter productive.

Some people it may ignite flames, others it may douse. People go in expecting to learn something, and walk out learning close to nothing, which would be a huge turn off to many people. Really, think about it. You are like "Oh a fighting game panel, that sounds awesome let's go". And then they talk about blocking, and not hitting buttons randomly... they talk about jumping and touch on cancels, but for like 5 minutes so you don't get it... then, the end.

Would that really make you feel like playing and learning more?

Touche my good sir, it does kind of feel like a high risk situation when you put it in that light; and 5 mins on cancels...yeah... I guess as you said in a previous post possibly if they focused on one game it would work ok, or try to hit up the newer games across a few panels instead of one mash up.  Just to add, the panel learning doesnt have to end with the panel Fanime does host a lovely 24 hour arcade, which a lot of the games mentioned are hosted;  I guess I'm just saying it could work if dedication was there

Lawliet I can see where you're coming from on this.  I think the problem here is the people here in the forums are looking at it from a seasoned/tourney player point of view; which wants technical breakdowns etc.  From what i'm assuming what  you want to do is show people that these games exist, very much like a friend inviting you to their house Give them the basics for what they need to start playing, and hopefullly have fun. Because it finally is a fight game panel the seasoned players will drop by to see what this shindig is about and be able to give pointers for people that are interested in knowing more.  Thats just my two cents take it or leave it.
I get the point completely, and I do that all the time. I help out new people to fighting games, and invite them over/go over to their place, break games down to them and teach them from ground zero.

The problem is that, after a 5-6 hour session just one on one, they're walking away with a very very very basic knowledge of how the game works, and that's only that specific game. Basically by the end of that day, they understand not to mash and randomly press buttons. They've learned what each button does for one character, and how to block high/low, why you should/shouldn't jump and how you're trying to use a strategy to land hits. Combos aren't even really brought up yet.

This is going to be 1 hour, spanning all fighting games, to a huge audience. In that time, you won't be able to explain really anything to them except 1 basic concept. Maybe blocking and "don't press buttons randomly".

Like I said, I really want to do a panel like this, but it's too hard and pointless. I think pointing them to srk/tekkenzaibatsu/8wayrun etc. is better for them to read about basics and if they want to learn more, to ask someone.

even from the extended amount of time it takes to not randomly mash buttons, why not just let him have at it?  Like you said yourself you do want a panel like this, you're not running it and you're not losing anything from it if he runs it, so why shoot him down?  I'd rather have a spark than no flame at all if you ask me; at least people will see a mash up of something they could be interested in and slight direction, and lets face it the arcade scene is nowhere near where it was/should be so why shoo people away from the community?  Just because he's not deemed "qualified" doesn't mean he can't show what he knows.  And it's not like people take what other people teach them and do it exactly the same way every time, through play they'll find out what works for them especially with something as diverse as a fight game.

Live Programming and Events / Pokemon tcg?
« on: February 22, 2010, 10:49:33 AM »
In celebration of the new cards finally coming out and the HG/SS games coming out was considering hosting a how to play for the TCG and possibly a tournament kind of thing; I need to work out the kinks but wanna know if there would be enough people interested for me to further the process.  Plus it seems a lot of people recently have been getting back into Pokemon itself so we may be able to make this into a general Pokemon panel from games, to the anime, to the tcg.
