    Hi guys, I'd like to introduce LAG: HOMESTAY | FINAL SHOWDOWN @ REDONDO BEACH

    It was so inspiring getting slaughtered by Homestay during Evo 2018, that I invited him to come play and hang with us. He will come with his wife and they both will do a little sightseeing, but he is looking forward to playing Final Showdown with us.

    It would be nice to have a sister event to NYG here on the west coast, where we invite Japanese players, get to know them a bit, and level up our game. (We used to do this with early NYGs during the VF4 era.)

      Damn this event is getting pretty rediculous with the level of talent coming. It's crazy how the VF community is still this strong after so many years. There's gonna be some dope ass, top quality matches for sure. Good luck everyone. You guys better practice up for this. There's no excuses. Yall jump on xbox live and get in some games with me if you see me on. I'll help out whoever needs a sparring partner.

      Hey Poise. I actually dunno, I might have one. I just got an Astro A40 headset for the PS4 for Red Dead Redemption 2 so I'll see if its compatible with the Xbox 360. Oh and I guess I gotta see if my stick has a mic port too. I'll let u know.

      Update: So the Astro A40 isn't compatible with Xbox 360. Bummer. But my fighting stick has a mic port and headsets are only like $5 at gamestop. I'll pick one up soon. My gamertag is JunoSynth.
