I'm from Springfield, MA. I only have the game on PS3 for now. I go to Game Universe in Framingham, MA from time to time. I was there this Tuesday mostly playing MK. NuSix3, it was a pleasure meeting you on Tuesday. Maybe I'll see some of you at the GU tourney tomorrow.
 
Sorry I couldn't make it out today! Weekend before finals in my last semester of college. This summer I'll be way more free to attend things like this. How was the tournament? Good turnout?

Turnout was good. I scrubbed out, but had a good time. Once PSN comes back online and I have the time I'll learn to play this game. It was nice seeing so many people getting hyped about something other than SF and Marvel. I took 2nd in T6, and you could almost hear crickets by our station. Hopefully things will change once the crossover games and TTT2 drop.

Were you the other kid using Kitana? Apologies, I didn't catch everyone's gamertag. Regardless, I had a lot of fun at GU and have nothing but good things to say about everyone I've met there. I plan on going down there at least once a week from now on so hopefully we'll be playing each other again sometime soon.

GGs in MK and Tekken yesterday. I was only using my day 2 Sektor in the tournament, so hopefully I'll be getting better soon.

Yep that was me. Hopefully we get to play again soon.

Heya, I'm pretty new here (well, not to the area, just the the whole Fighting Game community thing).

Live in Gloucester MA, just a train ride away from Boston.

Actually, I live in Gloucester as well. I work 3pm-11:30pm and am off on weekends. Shoot me a PM with your number if you're looking to get some offline matches.

P.S. I'm mainly a Tekken/SF player, but I'm trying to pick this game up for when I'm able to attend tournaments in Framingham.

Hah, awesome. I haven't actually had much practice in fighters until recently when I picked-up SFIV again (after years of hiatus from stuff like Alpha 3, Tekken Tag, etc.). Then dabbled in some MvC3, and got in MK since it was an old fav of mine, and found it somewhat exciting to be in on the ground floor of a new game as everyone discovering the nuances of it.

I tend to work mornings though (10am to 6pm'ish), but I'm off on sundays. I'll send you a message in a bit. Actually have another friend of mine who drops by every once in a while for some fighting game action as well (he lives in Gloucester too) and HE just started picking up MK.

This weekend is a no go for obvious reasons, but I wanted to ask...do you play MK (and the other fighters you play) on PS3 or 360?
 
Hey guys I'm currently playing MK and SSF4 I'm not very good but looking to get better. I don't go out much (4 kids) but if anyone is looking for online matches I'm down. I live outside of Boston.

New England's thread on TZ
If you live in Providence and play Tekken, I'm going to assume you know Matt aka AnimalATTAKtics. If you don't, then that's a shame. At any rate, introduce yourself over there on TZ as well if you and your crew play that game.

Posting up about events in 3 forums probably isn't going to happen every time, but Tuesdays and Fridays (most weeks) are gatherings at GU in Framingham. I'd recommend lurking the Framingham thread on SRK, because Lucky D is the one organizing events there and that's where most of the info. will originate from online.

Next time there's something going down at GU on a Saturday you guys need to come up. I haven't seen Matt since VTYME 4, and since PSN has been down I haven't played him lately either. Tell him that Josh (aka Bacon) says what's good!
 
Anyone from the NE area and who has a ps3 send me a fr @ shrtstopp .. Ill prob head to GU if there is any tourneys for moola.. Im going to EVO so im pretty pumped. anyone from around here going to evo?

I'd love to go, but quite frankly I don't have that kind of time between the job and my family.

Anyhow my MK Online pass ran up. Once PSN is back up and I can redeem the code we'll get some games in. Anyone else here from NH/MA or surrounding areas?

I would not be against setting up some local casuals if we could get enough people.

Hey guys, I'm a SF4 player from MA but I've recently picked up MK9 and have been having a lot of fun with it. Its great to see a lot of MK players from the NH and MA area and just wanted to inform you guys on other places to play besides GU in Framingham MA.

SouperBowl, Lowell MA, Fight Night Every Wednesday
Every Wednesday night the SouperBowl restaurant in Lowell MA holds a fight night for a variety of games including MK9. Also this venue hosts a monthly tournament and this months May tourney had 25 entrants for MK9.

Pinball Wizard Arcade Pelham NH, Fight Nights Every other Tuesday (next 5/31)
Then there is the Pinball Wizard Arcade in Pelham NH. They hold fight nights every other Tuesday night also with a variety of games including MK9. This is a new venue and they are planning a tournament for mid June, MK9 is on the game list.

All these venues are predominantly SF4 and MvC3 driven, though MK9 is holding its own and generating a lot of interest. The more players who come and support the game then the bigger mk9 can get in NE.

You sir are my hero. I'd be down to go to either of these - as a matter of fact I probably will.

Why is pinball wizard bi-weekly? Do they not get that big of a turn-out to do it weekly? Nothing wrong with it, but seems weird.

I might check out the next fight night if the 3 or 4 other NH MK players commit to showing up. If I go I'd rather not be playing street fighter. I get my ass handed to me enough in that game.
