What do you remember from the gaming center last year?

Postby MarioMitch2591 » Wed Apr 01, 2009 10:36 pm

Well I'm sure we all had a fun time on Saturday night when they brought out Super Smash Melee and Super Smash Bros Brawl last year. It's been a long time since then so I just wanted to know what you people remember from Youmacon's gaming center of 2008.

Friday in the gaming center wasn't so special since I just wanted to get used to the place cuz it was my first year to Youmacon

I remember when I watched that epic match between Snake and DeDeDe in the last match of the tournament and then I started pwning people who dared to beat me with my Sonic. I think this year is going to be a blast.

Then on Sunday I loved how I pwned people (along with people doing the same to me) on Halo 3's infection game. It was funny and epic when we did so many kills in so many funny ways. I left last years convention laughing since I had a great time.

What do you guys remember from the gaming center last year??

I learned that after taking a break from the rave due to feet pains and exhaustion, ITG is definitely not the way to go.

I gave up so quickly in to the song, haha. 8|;;

I remember catching Patrick Seitz playing Rock band on I think it was either Friday or Saturday morning (Which ever one had the news people there). Of course, my mother called and screamed at me and my friends for embarrassing our respective families on TV, but heck. it was worth it.

A lot of casual melee and brawl, getting to sing Eye of the Tiger in Rock band (I think) and probably being terrible, holdign my own in Tekken, and a few hours of a war game on Xbox 360 I don't remember the name of. it MIGHT have been a farcry. All i remember was I could take a few seconds to heal damage at any point, and you could earn upgrades for weapon categories.. I think I was the only one who figured out how to do that.

I never actually went into the game room myself, but when I volutneered I was watching the door almost all late Saturday night.
What I remember best was Caitlin Glass and Patrick Seitz coming to the door, but apparently Caitlin had forgotten her badge in her room, (and she was wearing Haruhi's wig at the time) and the guy on the other side of me wouldn't let her in. She was holding up her picture in the guide book, but the guy still wouldn't let her in. I had to vouch for her identity and she was finally allowed to go in ^ ^
It's funny cuz the same thing had happened to Patrick earlier that day-only that time it was me who ID'd him. He remembered me as the 'guard' who checked his badge. XD

hahaha. You were the one thing that stood out most, and I was going to mention you. But here you are talking about yourself =P
It was great watching you play. I'm gonna watch the tournament this year and hopefully you're there to beat everyone.
I didn't see your Melee, though.

Since Youmacon, I haven't really improved in Smash. I think it's hard when you only have CPUs, and you're not even sure how you're supposed to practice. CPUs, even for player like me, are predictable enough to beat consistently.
I can do the cool little short hop NEUTRAL-A fast fall thing you did, though. It's crazy to watch. Along with dash, grab, throw down, over B B B (down) B.

I remember being awake before any of my roommates and wondering downstairs to play Rockband. When flipping through the song list I told the group I was playing with that I would sing if it was a song I already knew and picked The Smashing Pumpkins...and none of them knew who they were. I asked how old they were and in that moment I finally felt like an old guy at the con.

Lol. I remember mindlessly walking through them and watching my friend Aaron play an xbox game all weekend. I think he took a nap for maybe two hours to sleep. XD
