Game Store Guy Strikes back with ALL CAPS!

Since I got such a good response to my last video I decided to make another. While the last video had some cool combos a few of the hardcore SC players mentioned that someone could “air control” out of them pretty easy. For those of you who are not hard core SC players, air control is when you hold guard and mash a direction while in the air in order to roll out of the way of combos. It’s true that if you time it right you can get out of some of the combos from my last video. Anyway, this second video is all guaranteed hits. As far as I know there is no way to air control out of these.

I will try to post some Vs. stuff soon.

I also got this e-mail from Loki, the guy who runs the shop I talked about on Monday.

YOUSAID SOME PRETTY MEAN STUFF ABOUT MY PLACE. MOST OF IT GROSS EXAGERATIONS, SOME OF IT TRUE, BUT AS YOU WOULD SEE IF YOU OPENED A STORE ITS HARD TO MAKE IT IN THE INDEPENDENT SMAL STORE ARENA IMEAN THERE WAS ONCE OVER 25 FAMCOM STORES ALL CLEAN AND NICE AND SUCH AND THEY ALL FAILED.  YOU SEE MY STORE IS MESSY I AGREE BUT ITS GETTING CLEANER ALL THE TIME.  WHEN I GOT THE PLACE THE BACK ROOM WAS COMPLETLY FILLED TO THE CEILING WITH JUNK, ITS TAKEN ME A LONG TIME TO CLEAN IT AND MOST OF THE NON JUNK FROM BACK THERE I HAVE JUST PUT INTO BOXES AND THROWN BEHIND THE COUNTER.  ITS A SLOW PROSESS CLEANING AND ORGANIZING WHEN YOUR TRYING TO PAY THE RENT BILLS TAXES ETC.  EVENTUALLY THE STORE WILL BE CLEAN OR AT LEAST SOMEWHAT CLEAN.  ANY WAYS I DID NOT CONTACT YOU SO YOU COULD COME DOWN AND GIVE THE STORE A CRITIQUE I JUST WONDERED IF YOU WOULD WANT TO THROW EVENTS WITH ME OUTSIDE THE STORE I NEVER MENTIONED USING THE STORE FOR AN EVENT I WAS REFERING TO SOMETHING LIKE SPLITING THE RENT FOR A VENUE SO WE COULD HAVE A TOURNAMENT ETC.  ALSO IF YOU THINK THE STORES SO MESSY THEN WHY NOT COME DOWN AND HELP CLEAN IM ALWAYS TRYING TO GET PEOPLE TO HELP CLEAN, BUT MOSTLY PEOPLE JUST LIKE LEAVING FOOD HERE FOR ME TO CLEAN UP.  ANYWAYS WHAT IM TRYING TO DO HERE IS HAVE A PLACE THAT HAS THE STUFF YOU CANNOT GET AT GAME CRAZY ETC. ALSO ITS REAL EASY TO POINT OUT THE BAD BUT YOUR REPORTING IS VERY ONE SIDED AND NOT UNLIKE ANY OTHER GLORRY HORE OUT THERE IN THE REGUALR BIASED PRESS, I GUESS YOU WANT TO BE JERRY SPRINGER OR THE OLD OPRHA. ITS COOL WHATEVER. ANYWAYS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN COOL IF YOU AT LEAST MENTIONED A FEW GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE STORE BUT I GUESS YOUR NOT THAT KIND OF GUY.

LOKIS

The “clean and nice” stores failed so….you thought a filthy one would succeed?  No I’m not gonna come down and help you clean your fucking store! The fact of the matter is you could have that place spotless in two days tops with a little help from a couple buddies and some Oxi Clean. You can’t hand a fucking broom to every customer that walks in the door. That is YOUR store and if you really cared about it you would take care of it. I’ve never been asked to help vacuum the QFC. “Yeah, your groceries come to $65.50 and grab a mop there’s a spill in aisle six.”  I can appreciate the fact that you want people to get stuff they can’t find at mainstream game stores but that shouldn’t include infectious diseases. I’m sorry I couldn’t think of anything nice to say about your rat trap in my last post. You do have a lot of great merchandise, you just aren’t taking care of it. I got a lot of mail from people in the area who have been into your shop and they all agreed that my description was spot on. Many of them actually questioned my sanity upon reading that I went back to your store a SECOND time. I guess once is enough for most people.
