:karate: Tokyo Game Action :karate:


From 95 North, take the **EXIT towards 495 North.

  • From 495 N, take EXIT 29B, then that’ll be Rt.2 WEST. (20-30 min drive)

  • From Rt. 2 W, take EXIT 24B, then tha’ll be Rt.140 NORTH. (10-15 min drive)

  • From Rt. 140 N, keep going straight down for about 15 min.

  • Eventually you are going to run on a little bridge with a pond on your right, from there take a RIGHT onto Beech Street.

  • At the end of Beech St., take a right onto** 5 Summer Dr.** and you’ll see our beloved :karate:

When you’re lonely and you’re feelin’ alone, you can always go…Browntown

I’ll be bringing that shit hard. I might even cancel bringing that shit **hard **off of bringing that hard shit, but I’ll more than likely miss the hit confirm.

Gavin, does Andy still sell all types of J-merchandise (namely games), or just snacks and snacking accessories? If he still has any more copies of PC Genjin a.k.a. Bonk’s Adventure for GC or PS2, I’ll pick one up.


I’m taking Slash FREE, if it’s accent core expect the same. Melty is free if I play the game 5 more times. Anything else i’m donating to the cause, bring the hate SON!! :arazz:

The GTASF contingent is still TBA.

My role is basically to show up and talk a lot of shit because we all know I don’t know what I’m doing in any actual fighting game. I am looking to put together the best team across the board. Names are slowly coming in…

DarkDragon: Considered by many to be one of the best (possibly the best) GGXX/ players in the GTASF. He’ll be our number one man looking to take down Slash.

Gerjay: One of the most well rounded players in the GTASF and considered by many to be the #2 Marvel player in the GTASF.

JS Master: I like to call him “The All Around Best.” There’s no one in the GTASF that plays as many games on such as high level as JS and he will be a force to be reckoned with.

Ratio1beatdown: The GTASF’s ace CvS2 player. Ratio1beatdown is a two time CvS2 National Champion and one of the most feared players in our community. He will be a powerful player in all games.

Jiggabry: Argueably Canada’s #1 Marvel player. Bryan has been unstoppable within Canada for the last two years and has only fallen to US powerhouses Justin Wong and Xcutioner at the T tourney the last two years. Whether TGA takes Marvel seriously or not, Bryan will be looking to scoop Marvel.

AneurysmX: One of the GTASF’s top 3rd Strike players. Antoine is the best Dudley in the GTASF and has placed well in US majors including 4th at MWC2K6.

That’s the primary seven players. It is likely we will have a 2nd car/van coming and updates will be made when that has been finalized.

I’d like CvS2 Money Matches with the following people. All of the sets are 3/5 for $10
Paul Wall
Echoes Of Pain
Nick T
Mr. Fantastic
Master Chibi

:confused: Team Tournament on the Friday? That’d be hype. :confused:

hey you guys should have smash as one of the games in team H8 vs canada lol

id really like to go but i have to see if i can get the day off :’(

i accept that mm nagata tho

I would challenge Nagata in CvS2 but for some reason I can’t play CvS2 for shit at TGA. I’ve been getting progressively better over the past few months but as soon as I get to TGA I instantly forget everything and start mashing on buttons.

I’m curious who Canada will have on their 3s, CvS2, and ST teams. MvC2 to be completely honest isn’t even going to be exciting since 1. its on jap cab which nobody practices on and 2. Team Hate doesn’t really take Marvel seriously besides Tony B and myself, and I’ve officially retired from the game.

I"m definitely down for slapping around some canucks in ST and 3s though!

So what does everyone think:

Have a two day event?


make it one HELL of a day on the 6th?

Up to you guys, SPEAK UP!

Two days is more than likely going to be a no-go unless it’s Saturday-Sunday. I work Fridays and no way I will be able to get out at 5:30 and make the 3+ hour drive to get there in any shape for games. I think that pretty much goes for everyone that goes to TGA as well; I’ve never heard of anyone taking an entire day off because there was a TGA tournament on Saturday.

If you are going to do 2 days, go Sat-Sun so people who have Mon-Fri jobs don’t have to take days off, and you’ve got yourself a deal. BTW keep in mind I usually bring an entire car of gamers who feel the same way.

dsp speaks TRUTH

Good shit gavin, hopefully i can make it to this ranbat and wuts up wit the points, who has X amount of points?

:rolleyes: Jap sticks > You in CvS2 Phil. :rolleyes:

I don’t think we’re putting together a Super Turbo team. We only have one of our ST specialists coming in Ratio1beatdown. It’s likely the GTASF vs Hate matches will be CvS2/MvC2/3S. Try to drag your ass out of retirement from Marvel long enough to help your boys out. They’re going to need the help considering we’re bringing some of our best Marvel players.

I’ll be more than happy to join any ST singles tournament though. I’m not very good but I enjoy it.

:wonder: You have seven weeks to book the day off. That’s no excuse not to get rocked by my gimmicks. :wonder:

I’d like to add Master Chibi and CB to my CvS2 3/5 for $10 Money Match list.

Does TGA have an Alpha 3 cabinet?

yeah id like to go to this but i have to take 5 days off for new years. going on vacation with friends

as much as id like to eat roll super, i dont think its worth flaking out on my friends

im looking forward to this

I guess I’m part of team Hate now?

I HATE YOU ALL!!! (jk)

So smash is still in TGA? I’m surprised. I thought it would die out, but I guess TGA is still holding it down. Gave me that much respect for TGA.

Even more respect for holding Melty Blood tourneys too.

Ready to pwn Canada?

I don’t go to TGA. Although I wouldn’t mind. :sad:
As far as going to places though, I live in the worst place. If I have to/want to go anywhere, I have to circle around NY like 3 times before I even start to get where i’m going. Thats why I rarely go anywhere.

i will be there

good luck Team Hate. I dont think ill make this tourny though.

I will side bet Juice over anyone in 3s though:wgrin:


so if both Smooth and Min aren’t coming, we’re now down 1 of our best 3s players and 2 of our best CvS2 players…

Already starting to look shitty for this challenge. And no ST event so I have no fun beating people up.

Team Hate let’s starting thinking this through.

Who would be on our 3s team?

-Paul Wall
-ill Will
-J Juice
-Toss up…I would say myself but I don’t know if you guys might think there’s a better candidate.


-Tony B
-Paul Wall
Now that Min and Smooth are not coming, I honestly don’t know who to say should be in this. I know Will plays and I do, but I don’t think either of us have really been taking it seriously. Last two spots for this will be a big “?” until we figure something out.


-Tony B
-Paul Wall
-J Juice
-? I’m retired.
And in all honesty, do we even play this game anymore?

Looking for suggestions Team…

sup man, i was talking to spic tom and he actually cut the bs and is trying to play serious now so mukai told him to join and asked about you since you came up. Its good to have you guys since we should all stick together (nohomo) and always be ready to compete against the other gaming groups, no matter what game or whos coming our way. team tga/hate wooooo!

Anyways about the teams.

Gavin or Joey Crack (if smooth’s dumbass doesnt show)

dsp/will/tony/gavin/CB(if hes any good and not joining the canadian team)???

joey crack

Ed vs Nagata in shit talking? who will win?
