Dance Dance Revolution at Taste of Ann Arbor: Canceled!

AADL-GT Pad Logo

Sorry guys, but there's a big storm a comin', and our equipment is not rated for wet/dry use. Taste of Ann Arbor is still going strong, but we've had to take down our DDR equipment before the next storm comes. However, don't despair: our next all ages DDR event is just a month away: Sunday, July 1, from 1 - 4 PM at the downtown library. Also, don't miss our simultaneous Guitar Hero 2 / Pikmin 2 tournaments Friday Night, 6/29, from 6-8:30 PM, and our massive 5-hour Super Smash Bros. Regulation Throwdown, Saturday, 6/30, from Noon - 5 PM. Plus, our Pokémondays Summer Tournament Series starts Monday, 6/25, from 1 - 5 PM at the Pittsfield Branch. See you soon!

so what will i be winning for my inevitable first place finish?


Sorry, lain, but I had to cancel. Our equipment's not rated for outdoor use and I don't want anyone to get hurt. Plus, the pads will likely get ruined and are too slippery when wet; furthermore, I've learned over the years tht you don't SNORK with water and electricity.


REGULATION THROWDOWN!!!!!!! Yessss finally!! i dont have to wait 2 months to play smash ^_^

since its 5 hours does this mean there will be teams this time?

lawl.

It's very funny when Swordmaster hates on people for wimping out of mm

um...looked in the mirror lately?


lain-i have better people to play in midland so I'm not comming

omega-.....Still no answer. What could I expect though talk is cheap and well, skill is skill. when is the midland tounament anyways. I'd like to go to one of those to test my abilities.


omega why are you being so harsh. haha. jeesh. there ARE better people in midland to play. in fact they're much better. it's just like... 30 scrubs at the aadl, then like 3 guys who know what they're doing.

also omega: okay. $10 mm. best of 5. agree?

also at mdidget: HAHAHAHA. that was so good.


OMG yes lain please take the roysters to midland then all of aadl would be mine for the taking

1st place ftw! ^_^

lolololol. the likelihood of swordmaster taking first is as likely as me moving back to ann arbor

ZEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO %


swordmaster, i think i'll get limabean to enter a lvl 5 computer so it'll face you.

i'm pretty sure it'd 3 stock you


omega-oooooohhhhhhhhhhh! that's just cold. Anyways I can't go to the midland touney because I will be at wrestling camp from the 22nd-28th.


midland tourneys on the 30th same day as the throwdown, 23rd is the grand rapids smashfest

well I still don't know if i CAN go. how far is midland from ann arbor anyways? the answer to that question will help me make my final deciton.


midland is about 2 hours away. it's pretty damned fun.

we won't get lost there, because we already did that last time. mapquest likes SNORKing us over by giving us unnecessary directions and putting roads on the map that aren't actually in the right spot. : /

i think we'll have a camcorder too, so we'll definitely have fun recording. =]

oh and we can visit the gas station that has automated gas units that talk to you about jesus while you gas up. it's creepy.


Are the Pokemon tournamens going to be for Diamond and Pearl?

And if not, can we make them that way?
Cause I'm too poor and lazy to go out and buy a FireRed of LeafGreen just because it's on the GBA. Boo GBA. Hoorayyy DS!

The Pokémon tournaments are GBA. So Ruby, Sapphire, FireRed and LeafGreen will be usable. Diamond and Pearl will not be a regulated tournament but expect lots of people to be playing it there (enough to make it easily worthwhile hopefully). I know at least 4 regulars to have Diamond and/or Pearl (including Eli and Nemo). I hope to acquire my copy of pearl this week so you can make that 5.

I don't actually know the format. I assume there will be brackets for Lv.50 and a Lv.100, but I'm wondering if there is another one. Please inform us Eli.

Now I will continue breeding.


Boo.

I went out and got LeafGreen today, but then I remembered that Eli said you had to still have a GBA or an SP to use the link cables, so I suppose I'll just use LeafGreen for importing Pokemon into my Diamond version. If there's enough interest, I'd be more than happy to coordinate a tournament for Diamond and Pearl, no prizes, just bragging rights. Or we could just open battle and trade.

I'd be interested in trading with anyone who has any Pokemon from the original 151 (or the ones #1-151 in the National Pokedex), at any level, so if anyone has any that they're willing to trade, let me know either on here or at the events, and we'll see what we can work out. I'm not that big of a fan of these new-fangled species they have, so if I have something you want, I'll probably be more than willing to trade it to you.

Also, just to get an idea of how I'm progressing, I'm just past 15 hours, I have 3 badges and I'm at the lake South of Veilstone City. Where is everybody else?

Tom I'll see if I can barrow my sister's GBA for you to use.


Hey, I didn't know there were so many pokéfreaks among the gt faithful! Pokémondays this summer will still require fire red / leaf green / ruby / sapphire / emerald, but we have some house GBAs that are always available so you don't need to worry about that. Some of the tournaments are for level 50 and under, some are for 51 & over, and some are open. I'll make a detailed Pokémondays post as we get closer.

We won't move to Diamond / Pearl / Pokémon Battle Revolution this summer, but we will have our first Diamond / Pearl event the friday after thanksgiving, and then winter break Pokémania.

Stay tuned for full GT season details too.


yay you can use gamecube controllers for brawl

thank you for alerting us to information that we've known for months


"thank you for alerting us to information that we've known for months"

Smash Bros. Supports All Control Styles! - June 8, 2007

yeah lain, June 8 was months ago >_>


The next day, on Wednesday, May 10, 2006, at the After-Hours Press Conference, Nintendo officially revealed the game under the name of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Miyamoto and Sakurai, who were there to make the announcement, hinted that the game could have full compatibility with the GameCube controller. Sakurai said that the reason was because he did not want to "alienate those familiar with the pad."

hmm wow that looks like 13 months ago.

gg


I need a link lain :P

"June 8, 2007 - Super Smash Bros. Brawl director Masahiro Sakurai on Friday revealed that the forthcoming fighter can be played with just about every control type, including the Wii remote (on the side), Wii remote + nunchuk, a classic controller and even a GameCube pad."

if your previous game was extremely successful and has MANY hardcore followers, why alienate them like that? the gamecube controller already has so much functionality, why ruin a bad thing?


bla bla bla bla bla bla


Yeah, for as often as Lain and I have agreed (read: not very often), they have pretty much had confirmed that for quite awhile now.

Looks pretty cool! I'll definitely be there on the 30th.

Limabean, my address is my GT name, all lowercase with no spaces, @gmail.com. Francisco still has my Kart disc, but I've got a record of my times floating about somewhere. I look forward to our "duel."


so is there going to be teams for the regulation throwdown?

Yeah, Eli I'd like to know that as well. I'm assuming it's 3 Pokemon teams,with a <=50 bracket and a >50 bracket. I'll be there early for trading and such, Pittsfield branch is next door to me.


Duck, what do you have in the way of original 150 pokemon that you don't want/need?

Also, if the pokemon isn't in the Sinnoh Pokedex, can you trade for it before you get the National Pokedex?

two space animals is generally a bad idea.


lol we're not actually gonna go double space animals, you think id tell ppl what my teams actually going to be composed of. Not that it matters anyway shin wont be there so there isnt a team silent which makes doubles easy

edit: midlands lame now me and my brothers cant go 1 2 3, lol jk

---ELI URGENT---

Please make this tournament double elimination. As last time, we had single elimination and it was quite lame.

That is all.


uh no, single eliminations fine so we wont run out of time. If anything make it friendly fire for teams

Well Eli, this is a REGULATION tournament as stated, so we need to have double elimination. Because that's what is part of regulation rules. Haha.

Also, stage list?


FC, with 200+ people in attendance, cuts to top 32.

I think the library should cut to top 16, and then double elim bracket for the rest.

And friendly fire for teams would be good too.
