DDR, Super Smash, Mario Party and more; now with PODCASTING!

AADL-GT Pad Logo

OK, guys, it's time for the start of the 4th Annual AADL-GT Super Smash Double Dash championship season! Round 1 is just days away, but first, we've got something new that you may be interested in: the AADL-GT Podcast studio. We're producing a short podcast about the next season, and this Tuesday, August 21, from 3-5 PM, you can come to the downtown library and find out how to produce your own AADL-GT Podcast! Maybe you want to make your predictions for the season; maybe you want to do a monthly podcast about your clan and its prowess. Maybe you want to take your trash talk to the next level... or maybe you'd like to discuss the subtleties of smash attacks. You tell us! Come to get familiar with the tools on Tuesday, and then make a studio appointment to record your podcast. We'll then publish your podcasts here on aadl.org where anyone can subscribe to your show. See you there!

But, that's not all. We'll warm up for the start of the season in the Downtown Library Multipurpose Room with an All-Ages Dance Dance Revolution Tournament, Friday Night, 8/24 from 6-8:45 PM. We'll then have Super Smash Double Dash Round 1 for grades 6-12, Saturday, 8/25, from Noon - 5 PM, and then something new: an All-ages Mario Party tournament, Sunday, 8/26, from 1-4 PM. So, get registered, get your clan together for the start of the clan season, and we'll see you at the events!

You may also have noticed that the overall leaderboard is now filterable by season. Watch for rating and level leaderboards coming soon, and let me have your questions!

I was wondering if it was possible to make the podcast at home instead of coming to the studio. I have near studio quality equipment at home (Sound Blaster X-Fi, Noise Cancelling Mic, Audacity, etc.) and would like to do a podcast, but would prefer to do it at home so that I can work on it for a little while longer than I might be able to at a studio.

"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"

TP2, of course you can record and edit your podcast at home. Just email it, burn it to a cd, or bring it to me on a thumb drive and I'll get it on the webserver.

As for the season 2 DVD, there hasn't been one yet, although we've been working, believe it or not, on a new video of the season 2 grand championships. But, you guys may be interested in these streaming and ipod versions of the season 1 and 3 GCs. EBD, let me know if you mean the season 3 dvd, we need to be sure to get you one of those since there wouldn't have been one without your help. =)


that page is cool and cisco ur cus is here now so we can practice


oh i meant season 3 dvd lol

Yeah EBD I have a season 3 DVD for you. I can't make it to round one most likely, I should make it to the DDR. But I'll see if I can get it to you.

Plus Eli where is the demo video you made for the library convention?


Podcast idea is cool. I might have to have one produced

Ok the 6 person clan is great and is the perfect number.

I would like 8 player pools but if there is lag and messed up game play than 4 player is best. Than top 32 move on too new pools. where you have 2 too a station on 4 stations, 8 player pools. They get 3 races than a new group jumps in. These pools shouldn't take that long and would be great because you get the 8 player experience and the pool Than there is the infamous final race to decide prize winners.

I always like the idea of a second round of pools for melee.

Also for commentating are the events going to be televised?

I had one idea I'd like to run by you is the possibility of in the booth interviews. So me and Tom could get a little more in depth interviews than the current ones. I was thinking we would talk to someone before the match and ask if they want to be interviewed after the match and have them come back to the booth and we talk to them about the match and the rest of the tournament/season.

Is the clan cup going to be the same format?

Any word on clan/individual prizes? Will they be the same as last season?


AJ if u see this go to the thing on tuesday so we can workout when to practice


kool i start writing 1` now

or on monday when i get back


ahhh, when does registration open?


tomorrow it should


im PUMPED for this upcoming tourney!!!!!!!! Ive been training out of my mind the whole summer!!!!!!


training...for swimming that is haha


I have not been training for anything because SOMEONE STOLE MY COPY OF SSBM

what a pity... what a pity...

Gamecube for sale Gamecube for sale (that means two gamecubes are 4 sayl)


pwnerer go sell them at game stop you'll probally get 75-100 dollars. It would be hard to sell a gamecube to someone with the wii out.

This tourtament like many others has snuck up on me so i have to get some practice in.


ok limabean, i just got back and i will try to be there tomarrow.


i sold my gamecube to gamestop for 20 bucks so yea its not a smart idea


Ok im wrong than

but if you have a wii you might as well sell your gamecube


20 bucks whaaaatt

I've been working on a round table style podcast and I think that I'm ready to start doing a couple of episodes. I'm looking for people who have opinions on issues related to the AADL GT and I'd prefer that you'd be a player who has some AADL GT experience of at least one season.

I'll be doing the show by VoIP so you'll need to have xfire to participate. Xfire is an IM tool aimed at gamers that also doubles as a VoIP program. If anyone is interested please post on this forum and I'll try to figure out a good time for a show is.

"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


KK, I can only go till like 4 tho prolly, %$&@ its been too long since one of these,
PS, TP2, i dont understand anything you say, who's volp? jk


btw shin and omega, i request a rematch. same amount. best of 5. get my drift? XD

also, i'll be accepting a certain type of match against my mewtwo all day for one "thing". best of three. yayuhzz. i also accept normal ones too. any amount.


TP2, assuming xfire is free (which i think I remember it being), I'll certainly give it a shot. I know I'm not exactly a current member, but I still have opinions!

Also, speaking of podcasts, would anyone want to be interviewed for the official AADL-GT podcast?

VoIP, put simply, is a way of making a telephone call over the Internet. Xfire is a program like AIM, except that it does a couple of other things too. One of those other things is VoIP.

Major Tom, you're most certainly welcome on the podcast. You're not a current competitor in the tournament, but you have been to all three seasons and as a commentator you have some good insight into all the matches where as I only see some of them.

"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


skype is better


Durskis that should work aftternoon is better for me and probally will be the only time that works.

Tom I'll do the official GT Podcast

Eli New Question how late can i come that i can still make it for team melee?


People should join the AADL-GT group on Facebook. That will make it officially awesome.

Yea, Skype is better, but xfire is a lot more convenient for me and the audio quality will be about the same.

"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


yea tom ill do an interview


also i need a partner for both games unless we get a sixth memner thats good


TP2, I think I may have missed your answer, but is xfire free?

okedoke, mariokart anybody?


im still looking to practice before Saturday. If anyone is interested then just post on the board. And i am also gonna need a teammate.


If anyone needs a teammate, I need one as well. Go ahead and go to the leaderboard to see my stats if you want to. The AADL-GT Facebook group is once again doing well. Come join if you're on Facebook.

[gtlogo:RED]


woooooo im sooo kool


swordmaster, are you part of the Ann Arbor network? You have to be to be able to join the group. I'm not sure if there's a way to change it, but put your name here, I'll search for you and invite you just in case.

AJ if you want to talk about our clan I should be on AIM all day tommorrow


sry im going downtown tomarow but i guess i could maybe pracice from like as early as u wake up til 2 ill be on aim tonight so just send me a message


i forgot to say but that was directed at aj


and my aim is thewhitebeaner72


Swordmaster, if you need a smash partner, I can be your smash partner, as for Mario Kart, I think I'm set on that.


No, sorry. There is no way of changing the network, I've tried. The only way to fix it is to reset the entire group and make a new one. That way I can make it global. I still need a partner for both games and I'd rather not get some random newbie while I'm there...

[gtlogo:RED]


mike come on im better at mariokart by far and maybe smash


EBD i could need a partner

My Clan Predictions

1.bros and hoes(ryan),sry guys just bein honest
2.our clan(name?)
3.fjw's(also name?)

if u have any other major clans please let me know, Vac Monks?


Alright then. We could be partners if you want. Also, I think the mighty Vaccinated Monks might be retired...Only I remain and I'm too lazy to put together a clan so I'm joining one.

[gtlogo:RED]


aw we need a sixth but we might have someone


Beans, beans the magical fruit, the more ya eat the more ya toot, the more ya toot the better ya feel so eat your beans at every meal. Limabean, it may be that your a better smasher than i, however, the mario kart doubble dash skill, is still highly debatable, all i can say is that under times of intense pressure, my results and gaming fluidity increase durastically, im just of those high end high tear mkdd players which are hard to come across.


yeah yeah all talk no skill, well we'll just see who comes out on top when it really matters


excuse me but who's win vs. match percentage is 11% higher? i thought so


limabean, i do this all in good fun, in my perspective gaming should not be taken so seriously all the time, its all in good fun.


same here but u have to take into account that i absolutely sucked in the 2nd season while u came in at your prime


it's really funny when scrubs try to use their little win percentage thing to show how much better they are.

take a look at mine, it's utterly craptastic. but i'll beat anyone at the aadl besides sheepy.

yeah i lost that set to shin, but i really sucked still. haha. but hey, actions speak louder then words so i'll prove it saturday.

btw we got some surprise guests coming in saturday... you'll all be delightfully surprised. ; )


Hey guys, does anyone have a gamecube broadband adapter? We're down one.... let me know.

John, if you just want to bring your podcast on a cd or a thumbdrive, and email the picture, I can put it together. The GT podcast should go up today.


OMG i pwn you all
