The Brain Box

5$ Venue Fee for an unlimited day pass, 50$ for a 3 month unlimited pass, your day passes can add up to a 3 month pass if you so choose.

Location:

Brain Box Gaming Center

383 Centre St.

Boston, MA 02130(Jamaica Plain near Jackson Square T station)

(347) 278-7314

Schedule:

Monday: 10am - 8pm

Tuesday: 10am- 10pm

Wednesday 7-midnight (Fight Night)

Thursday 10am-10pm (NEW: Anime Fight Night)

Friday (Isn't listed on SRK but is probably from 10am-10pm) (Fight Night)

Saturday 4:30 - 10pm

Sunday: NOON until 10pm

Games:

There are Xbox 360 multiple setups with AE and UMvC3 and one PS3 with BBCS:2 patched in.

I can bring a PS3 and PS2 with:

-Guilty Gear XX Accent Core

-BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend

-King of Fighters XIII

-Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3

-Tekken 6

I do own a PS2>360 converter so I can play 360 games as well if people bring copies.

Directions: If you have access to MBTA then you would take the train until you are on the Orange Line, then ride it to Jackson Square. From there exit the train station and get on Centre St, keep walking that way and you should find it. Across from the venue is a bar and a pizzeria. The venue itself also sells drinks.

This is the main venue for Boston in my opinion because it's very easily accessible and it has the space to accommodate all of us. The regulars there are all welcoming as well, and look forward to us showing up and running our anime games. Once we have enough people showing up, I'd be happy to run BB, GG, KOF13, hell even MB and other games I may or may not play, and run pools and brackets and tournaments for us. However I will still post the information of other places to play games at.

i will definitely be making it out on the 4th. if it's possible to meet up with some of you guys before hand and travel there together that would be great because i don't know much outside of harvard square and the newburry st area. i usually just drive into alwife station and ride the train.

anyway, my info if anyone wants to play online or just get ahold of me

Eh, Saturday is Ranbats, I like those D:

Plus they open at 4:30 on Saturday and nobody really comes until 7 lol. Plus I get too tired to stay for breakfast club. I

If you're going to meet on Saturday, go at 5PM

I really want to go on friday though since I can have more casual time before the seriousness begins ( I hate Marvel, and I haven't touched Street fighter in months)

Btw, we forgot about tatsunoko vs capcom. I sold my wii, so yeah...... <_<

The idea of going Saturday really is to try and establish a Fight Night for anime games. I'd like to avoid Friday for personal reasons but I suppose I could go sometimes... I'll be going again tomorrow on Wednesday and I probably will decide to show up on another day that isn't Saturday. If you wanna meet up, then post up!

anyone having a hard time reserving bb ex ? gamestop doesn't have it in their computers for ps3 or 360. just the vita version.

they took it out for some reason,but if you ask the employees to "hot sku" it, they should be able to, granted they aren't completely retarded. i'm an asm at one so don't let them tell you that you're wrong. say bitch pull up an f10 get the sku and manually enter that shit in.

katz, are you on the way to alewife station at all? i'm always willing to give someone a ride.

My next couple Saturdays are booked atm. I can drop by on Feb. 11th. I made a commitment to go hiking every other Saturday, so I don't know how much I can participate. I live pretty close from the venue though (Brigham Circle area). Sunday works better for me tbh.

It's not set in stone just yet, I picked Saturday out of the blue and just trying to get people to want to go to the venue and make an appearance really. We'll see how it goes after Feb 11th(that'll be another day I go to the venue for anyone wondering) though, then we'll see about trying to get a regular day.

I live in Ware, so no. It's about an hour-and-a-half away, so unless you're feeling awfully generous...

Edit: I can pay for gas and stuff since I'm not completely poor.

Can't go this weekend either way, since N'Cheese lets me catch rides to CT casuals.

Looks like we're getting hype in here for some BB. We'll be playing CS2 on 360/PS3 (bring a 360 copy as there isn't one there at the venue iirc). I'll ask the management to make sure the venue's open on the 11th(there was some trouble yesterday) so we can get stuff started finally! If we get at least 8 players, I'll do a free entry tourney, and possibly give 20$ to the winner, let's see some attendance on the 11th!

I can be persuaded to bring an Xbox copy of CS, as long as there is 'net access to download the CS2 patch, 'cause I am NOT going back to CS1 Tsubaki. :P

i can bring an xbox with cs2 if needed

That's for the Xbox players though. Would definitely not be a bad idea to bring a 360 with CS2 patched. We don't have a console standard just yet, but this is free entry so it shouldn't pose a threat. I'm primarily PS3 and if I had my PS3 I'd bring that as a setup. We'll work on all the specifics afterwards. The 11th looks like it'll be a pretty decisive day. Just make sure you can all show up and then we can get all the hype and really get things going. Also yes, there is net access, I got BBCS2 downloaded on to the only ps3 the other day.

i'm used to bringing an entire set up to where ever i go to play, so it's not really a problem for me to bring an xbox or ps3. i have both and buy the same games on both. i play on xbox at home because the netplay is better, the timing is a bit different on ps3 but it takes a whole 5 minutes to adjust to that so whatever. i also have sticks for both.

also what time should we start showing up to this place, and does anyone want to meet up at harvard square or someplace to get some food before heading to the venue? i'm really only familiar with boston around the red and blue line.

There's a really godlike pizza place across the venue, along with a bar with an ATM in it (if you're into that thing) and apparently a Chinese food place 2 blocks up, so there's food there too. I should be arriving at the venue at 7:00-7:30.
