  1. Due to situations beyond my control, I'm going to resend the entry into the event. Thanks
  2. After loosing a friend of mine to cancer about a year ago, and another diagnosed, I feel like I've been in the shadows for far too long. I'm putting in motion, the idea of a "Day of Play" as a fundraiser for all forms of cancer research, with the idea of having all forms of gaming represented. (Table Top RPG, MTG, and Video Games and anything I'm leaving out.) I'm currently getting a list of local shops that I'm not looking to be trolled, for this is a serious matter at hand. If anyone has any ideas to help, I'm all ears. #1) I have a Potential venue. #2) Not sure on giveaways yet. #3) I'm going to attempt to do something specific for each genre of gaming.

    Help Cupcheck Get On "Cross Assault"!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gec5Fz2366E&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL Go here and watch my audition tape guys!! Tell me what you think!?
  4. With the annoucement of the Capcom reality series, "Cross Assault" I was persuaded by vVvParadice to audition, espically with the call backs from WCG Ultimate Gamer season 2. I saw that there was some catch to this, like with all reality shows. It's based on YouTube views, and likes after I submit the video. You guys gave me constructive critisim when it came to the shout cast video but even though the video was insanely shitty (I said it..not you guys!) I learned a few things. This will not be the same Cupcheck that auditioned for Ultimate Gamer, I have had a lot of things happen in my life, personal and professional, that have basically made me a new man. So as a former member of vVv I must request this one favor. Will you guys help me get on the show? Filming starts tommrow morning. Any help would be nice..... Cupcheck

    Magic The Gathering

    Well If you know how a "Pod" deck works, is that you need to work your way up to the big stuff.....but you might want to take out the black and put in white instead, there's so much more you can do. Although you take out the infect your still opening up too A LOT of things. "The White Prator dude" is what you want to work your way up to. A friend of mine went X-0 over a months time with WUG Pod, and I can't really remember what was in it, but as soon as i get it I'll post it up.

    Starting Your Own Podcast #2: Bringing Concepts To Reality

    I don't know which part this would go in. When you start, some people will get a huge fan base, some don't. Don't always assume the best, but don't expect the worse.
  7. With EVO in the books, I've decided to take a stab at the world of Marvel 3. After about 2 years of Super Street Fighter 4 (And not yet played Arcade Edition) I thought I would take a stab at the newest version of the loved franchise, even though I wasn't good with the first two in the series. Right now, I'm sitting at 33-100 and I've got a few reasons behind that. Let the trolls know I am not, or have I ever claimed that I'm any good at the game. I've just got some issues. #1) Change the Result Screen Please? When I first started playing I ended up getting like a 30-40 game loosing streak, and what really pissed me off was the result screen, that showed the winning team. In the lower right hand corner of the screen it says... "Your finished already?" or something along those lines.... It severly pissed me off. At the time It made me so mad during the losing streak, that I was telling my brother "I'm done with Marvel.". I was so sick of seeing the screen. After a few games with friends on a winning streak I decided to play back in random matches. I got to about 10 wins, then I realized...... #2) Match Making Sucks It's just one of those things that follows me everywhere I go, even in the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta. I know in order to get better you have to play against some of the best players the game has to offer, but what if your going against someone that's played ten to twenty more games than you, only to see that they are on a triple digit win streak? You can't do a damn thing in that match when the opponent does the same combos, with the same teams that I saw in Marvel Top 8 at EVO. Not only is this a major let down for me, but what about new players who want to be competitive with it? Which leads into..... #3) DO SOMETHING ABOUT PHOENIX!! The reason I loose to her about 99.9% of the time, is because I have no idea how to play against her. (Cues Up Viscant's "How To" to play against her.) When I play with her in my team, she automatically get's snapped in, and get's hosed. When I play against her...all the snap backs I waste meter on, are countered and when level 5 hits I'm screwed. She's been the most powerful character in the game sense Sentinel got nerfed, and I wonder if she will get the same treatment when UMv3 hits stores later this year. If you have the same issues please leave a comment below, and I would love the feedback. Cup
  8. Reo....Being a die hard fan of the fighting genre and communnity...I must say congrats on your 2nd place finish. GET EM NEXT YEAR!!

Then when he left to do his thing with Directional Influence, he came out and basically said "I'm Rick James!" and said he lied about the whole thing, and Jerry was "Charlie Murphy" My favorite Geek to Me article was the one giving help and hints on how to audition for WCG Ultimate Gamer Season 2, it helped me a lot during the audition tape. I give that the sole reason why I got call backs * How long have you been playing video games? 1990, 5 years old playing Super Mario World.
