Well it's mid year exam time (for me anyway and I've thought of the perfect way to blow off some steam afterwards. Can you guys guess what it might be? That's right! I'm going to beat all of you at various Wi-Fi games! Now simply because I can't decide which one I'm going to own you guys most with I've decided that I'll have to beat you at everything that comes up (and that I own obviously). So here are some details you guys will need in order to show up to your session of me beating you at something.*

Details
When: 7:00PM AEST (5:00PM AWST and 6:30PM ACST) Friday 11th June 2010
Where: The Vooks.net Chatroom
IRC Details: Server: irc.ausirc.net
Room: #vookswifi

Hopefully I will see you all there and we can play until the night is through. :)

*OP may be speaking with tongue-in-cheek

Details soon

/anticlimax :/

Will this be a general WiFi night? If so I'll be happy and willing to play anything, though I haven't played TvC in a while, so I'll need to brush up.

Yeah it'll be general. I can't put up any details at the moment because I'm studying (or supposed to be :P)

OP updated. BTW, games that I'll be up for include TvC, MHTri, MKWii, Brawl, Strikers (if anyone wants to :P), and some Pokemon trading maybe.

I don't have AC but The Conduit is workable too. :)

A perfect idea, Phantom! Although I will personally still have exams during this period, it will provide a good opportunity to maintain some balance between all the study, so count me in. :)

You should know that I'm always game for a few rounds of Strikers. :P Despite the fact that the random online community is practically non-existent these days, the game is still a blast with mates and continues to be one of the smoothest online experiences on the Wii. :) To keep things fair though, I'll ensure to keep the Advanced Tactics down to a minimum. Promise. <3

As a side note, I have been thinking about acquiring TvC for a while now, but my hands-on experience with the game has not been very positive. Whilst the production values of the game are fantastic, I just can't seem to figure out how to actually do anything beyond the basic attacks, leading to very fast defeats. :\ Perhaps that would change if I could play the game through single player, but I'm still largely undecided, with my favour going towards other games coming out in the near future.

Well in that case, that might be workable. :P

It's a very fun fighter, just make sure you have fighter friends offline or lots of them online. It's pretty much unplayable for me in Worldwide, but Domestic works very well. Last time I played I got owned online too so I haven't touched it much recently, but I'll pick it back up next Friday. The way I learned was the internet btw, looked up some kewl combos and a bit of improv. I'm probably not one of the better fighters though. :(

Same here. The game was a new experience for me, I hadn't forayed into the 2D fighting genre much. The instruction manual is actually pretty helpful too.

I'll play anything that I have, but I'm kind of hoping for some of The Conduit.

You called? Though, I may do little other than to give you a massive killstreak. :/

I'll endeavour to finally make an appearance - although I'll have to leave at 8.30pm to watch the footy. Go Carlton!

Anyway, I'll be up for Brawl, The Conduit... that's probably about it, and I'd rather play the latter as I've never played it online.

Hope to see you there! (Don't hold your breath though - I seem to fail at making Wi-Fi Nights)

Just to put a quick word out there, my attendance shall be delayed until 9 PM tonight, as I have other commitments that prohibit me from participating at the starting time. None the less, I look forward to seeing many of you there, especially those who are game for some epic Brawl and Strikers matches. :)

^Yes, but I'm in the World Cup mood too. :)

I may be a little late as I have to wait for the PC to be vacated. Feel free to start without me.

Just to thank Akiyo and Benanen for the Conduit experience - it was interesting, clearly not tailored to my strengths though ;)

Next time I'll try some Brawling and MH3, and perhaps some MKWii (if I find it cheap - which is unlikely).

WiiSpeak worked great too, Akiyo was particularly clear. It even worked then I had it on the side of my face, dangling from my ear. :P
