    i m going to be in shanghai the 1st of february (2010). my plane will land in the afternoon, and i 'd like to play in some arcades while i'm there. I will leave on the 2nd of february,so just one day.
    I dont play capcom games (i used to play sf2ce a lot but not anymore), i just play kof games. I already asked on kofunion about arcades that own kof games, but i want to ask also here (if anyone of u lives in shanghai of course). Any tips?
    Moreover i might need help for a train ticket. As u know during my staying there it will be guonian (chinese new year) and take train tickets will be impossible for me. I tell u the situation:
    i will arrive in Shanghai on the 1st of Feb. ,spend the night there. Then i have to leave to Jinhua on the 2nd of Feb. Well, i know that i cant buy the train ticket on the day of my arrival due to the guonian.. so i would need help about that. If anyone is willing to help me , i will treat him/her to a beer/mian eheh
    Hope somebody could help me (for both questions (arcades/ticket)). Thx :)

    Check out ??, they have like a million KOF setups... well, pretty much every arcade does.

    By the way I'm going to be settling in Kunshan (like twenty-thirty minutes outside of Shanghai) on the 23rd of this month, and I will very probably be working IN Shanghai, so I hope I'll be able to meet the rest of you guys soon :)

    - Lu Wan District Workers World Style Club: Xu Jia Hui Road, Lu Wan District no. 358-3F.
    - Shanghai Lie-Huo Game Entertainment: Jiang Ning Road, Jing'An District no. 77-4F, Opposite The Majestic Theatre.

    I may be staying in Shanghai for a couple weeks this summer. Although that is a long time from now, so machines may have been updated/removed by then, can anyone by any chance give a breakdown of what music games (DDR, Pump It Up, jubeat, REFLEC BEAT, DJMAX Technika, GuitarFreaks/Drummania, Taiko, etc.) there are?

    (edit: I don't need an exact breakdown by any means, but it'd be nice to know which arcades, if any, actually stay current with music games. i'd ask on a music-related forum but bemanistyle's Asia forum is completely dead..)

    As far as i know, Zheng Yang should be relocated outside of shanghai in a couple of months, but right now you can find one DDR, 6 Taikos and 3 or 4 other musical games (DJ stuffs).
    Lie Huo has 2 Taiko machines, one DDR, about 4 DJ stuffs.
    For the others, i'm quite sure you can find musical games in all of them, but i never saw any GuitarFreaks or Drummania in Shanghai.

    Also, if you're not too much into fighting games, you can check the Sega arcades in People's Square (New World City building, 7th Floor), lots of choice, around 8 different Taiko versions, etc.

    Hey Guys, Ive been living in Shanghai for a few months now, Im planning to stay here for quite a while. Anyways Ive been to some arcades, lately most of the time in Sichuan Bei Lu, because they have SSF4. Ive also brought my PS3 with me but cannot find enough good online competitors and often there is lag. If some ppl want to meet up in an Arcade or at Home to have some matches and some fun, then hit me up. PM me! Or e-mail me if its easier, ugehan@hotmail.com

    Yo Han, a bunch of the Beijing crew is hitting shanghai in a couple of weeks. I'll let you know more when I know it.

    To answer your question from earlier, no I picked up MvC3 when I was stateside.

    Uh new question. Anyone know if there are any arcades in Taicang? I tried googling "?? ????" and although my Chinese isn't very good, I basically got the impression that in 2009/10 they shut down all the arcades? Or did they just shut down places with gambling machines?

    If there aren't any in Taicang, how long does it take to get from Taicang to Shanghai using public transportation? A family friend said ~2 hours by subway. Google Maps said 7+ hours. I know Google Maps isn't really what you should be using in China, so what maps/directions service do people use in the mainland? Baidu?

    Thanks.

    Hello hello folks!

    I'm in Beijing right now, but I will be moving to Shanghai in the near future for an extended period of time for work (>year). I've been in Shanghai for a few months before, but I haven't really hit the scene really there at all. Hope I'll get to meet you guys! I'm probably going to be staying around the ??? area.

    Cheers~

    Ya, Taicang is kind of... out there lol. When I was back in Kunshan we all thought that, and thats coming from someone whose in Kunshan, so that should give you an idea lol. What do you play? You can come to Kunshan if you play Tekken, there is about 7-8 of us who play, or for 97. But ya, for SF you're best going online...

    You can try using map.baidu.com, but thats best for directions within one city. You're better off Baidu'ing... I'm not sure how in-date this is but ya: ????????????????_?????? ??????û?????????????????????????!_?????? ?????????(???)???????????????????_??????

    Edit: Opera doesn't like recognise Chinese in weblinks... err

    I actually don't really play fighting games at all.. I'm more interested in finding arcades with music games, particular DDR X2, Pump It Up Fiesta EX 2011, and jubeat knit. Are there any arcades in Kunshan? I don't see how to get there from Taicang by public transportation, but it's closer than Shanghai I guess..

    I'm not really clear on music games but I doubt we have any of those lol, still if you're interested, theres a bus from ??????? to the train station in Kunshan ????????_?? The feeling I get is that Kunshan is not at all far from Taicang, if you come by give me a call (pm me for nr), I'm not in Kunshan now but I know a lot of friends and will be able to tell you where to go ~

    I finally have my own discoveries to add to this thread lol.

    ???? (www.fyzq.com.cn), under People's Square in the Hong Kong Shopping Center, seems like a pretty cool place. They've got AE, other fighting games (didn't look very long).... as well as jubeats, jubeat clones, DJMAX Technika 2, GuitarFreaks/Drummania XG, and Pump It Up Fiesta EX 2011. Probably the best all-around arcade in Shanghai in terms of game selection. Was extremely busy today.

    (I went to the Tom's World at 96 shopping center in Pudong, and was kinda disappointed... all they've got going for them is 4x jubeat and 4x Technika 2, most of which were unoccupied today.)

    Lie Huo has 2 Taiko machines, one DDR, about 4 DJ stuffs.
    For the others, i'm quite sure you can find musical games in all of them, but i never saw any GuitarFreaks or Drummania in Shanghai.

    um.... I'm sure you were trying to be helpful, but that is not DDR -_-. I don't think there's a single DDR machine in all of Shanghai.
    Also Lie Huo has drummania.. the 1st mix.

    Come up to beijing yindesu. I want revenge for Round 1.

    Then im gunna fly back to LA and murder justin.

    Also yeah none of the ddr cabs in shanghai are actual ddr caps. A lot of them are just sm cabs or other 3rd party chinese crap.

    When we had the DDRX trial in Irvine (or wherever the hell it was) i asked them if it was possible to get DDR cabs out here.

    they said hk and taiwan only. No mainland.
    hope u doie f godngodong
  • yindesuyindesu Joined: Posts: 60
    I don't doubt there's no DDR in Shanghai currently, I gave up after hitting up a lot of the bigger places.

    However...
    ???????
    (it was also like that on May 10)
    vs
    ???????

    and
    DDRX2_ddr_ (maybe)

    Why is DSS popular

    (also I don't have time to go to beijing, (part of) tomorrow is my last free day to roam shanghai)

    Hi people!

    Greetings from Malaysia. Name is Nic and I am a Balrog and Urien player (in SSFIV & 3S) from Malaysia. I will be in Shanghai from 23rd till the 29th of June visiting my Dad. Is anyone free to meet up, hang out and have some games during the days I will be there? Hope to see the best of Shanghai players in action and maybe join in as well. I am a Malaysian Chinese with glasses. I will try to get a local number prior to getting to Shanghai so that those who would wanna hang out can call me. Cheers.

    Hey ppl~
    I'm wondering how the online play quality is in Shanghai. Anyone play online? How's the lag and if ppl play, are there a lot of ppl playing?
    I'm a tekken player wanting to learn SF. I've been playing Tekken for a while now, also played Virtua Fighter for some time. Not that
    good in 2D fighting game but i really want to try and learn.

    Normally i used to go to Lie-Huo for tekken(even tho i haven't played for a year now), how's the SF scene in Shanghai? I think i only saw
    Street fighter 4 but no SSf4 in lie-huo.
  • DaymanDayman Joined: Posts: 14
    I play at Lie Huo for about a year (only SF4), and they have recently added 2 new (more old than new though) booths for SF4.
    I guess we will get SSF4AE as soon as the PC version comes out and the whole thing gets pirated, this july i think.
    If you want to play SSF4AE right now, you have to go to the arcade near people square (mentioned earlier), it's 4 time more expensive than Lie huo and there's only 4 booths, so be ready to queue.
    Personally i don't think it's worth the effort to go as i live 2 minutes to Lie huo but you can give it a shot.
    Regarding online, it's really crap and the strong local players know it so you won't get much challenge from it.

    Hi all,
    I'm currently in Shanghai for the next two days and occasionally I play some SSF4 but I recently have become more interested in WMMT driving series. I was wondering are there any Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 3dx+ machines around in Shanghai somewhere? (I'm really down to play anything, looking for some cool people to game with!)
  • DontdodatDontdodat I know u want to Joined: Posts: 653
    I'm in Shanghai for one day tomorrow and will likely be heading to People's Square cause I actually know where it is. Anyone here play there? It'd be nice not to be completely alone.

    Hi, I'm a SF/Marvel player from Canada. I'll be in Shanghai until the Aug 22nd, anyone interested in getting some games in? I haven't been to the arcade yet, but i know the best arcade to go to for SF is ZhengYang
    Can someone tell me who's the master?

    Hi everybody,
    Currently living in Shanghai and I discovered next to going to those arcades or just playing at home, there is another alternative for playing games like SSF4AE, MvC3 etc. I found a really nice and cosy game shop which includes 7/8 flat screens with xbox360's/ps3's, mostly ps3. Once in a while I have been hanging around there to have some good games with the locals. It's 10 kuai an hour so it is fairly cheap. The locals themselves also often gather, mostly in the weekend, for some ssf4 or even mvc3. Often we just play and have some beer next to it haha. Most of the time we play it on the xbox and they also provide 1 or 2 arcade sticks. Best is to bring your own of course. If anyone is interested just let me know and maybe we can gather to have some games. Just PM me.

    Just made the move! I have arrived in Shanghai, and will be looking to get settled in within the next 2-3 weeks. Where are the best hot spots for SSF4AE? Will I need to bring my own sticks? I brought along a TE stick just in case. Any info will help. Also, off-tangent but how is arcade belligerence? Do people get nasty over here? Heard some nasty rumors, and am just curious....

    Hi All,

    Thank you in advance!

    Hey everybody,

    I arrived in shanghai about 3 weeks ago and will be staying here until around the first week of August. I started playing fighting games about a year ago, so I'm still fairly new to the scene. I mostly play sf4, but I'm definitely down to learn some Tekken and KOF as the games look awesome as well. Let me know if anybody wants to hangout and show me whats up in shanghai (e.g. where the best places to play at are and how is it price/game wise, what is the skill level there). I live around the West Nanjing Road station.

    Thanks guys!

    Liehuo in People's Square is pretty much where you want to go, at least for Tekken.

    I would love to get in contact with some Shanghai based people to hang out with and play games. I'm not too good, so frankly I'm looking for more of a mentor than a competitor (althought I'll try my best to kick your ass or cheese you to death). Also just looking to make some friends seeing as how I am predominantly an english speaker in a country where subcultural fashions either don't exist or are destroyed through mainstream funding (I know how awfully hipster that sounds but: I don't even skateboard but refer to the recently opened "Avril Lavigne Popup Skatepark" to understand my feelings).

    Anyhow, PM me if you're interested in hanging out. We'll meet up and play some arcade games at the site of your choice. If it seems prudent we can always use the PS3 at my place (however I only have 1 arcade stick). I'm free mostly on Mondays and Fridays, but arrangements can always be made otherwise. I'm in the service industry, however, so Saturday is my busiest day.
