    How popular are games like 3s and CvS2 in Japan? Are they as niche as they are in the rest of the world?

    I'm guessing games like ST and guilty gear are the most popular old school fighters

    3s is definitely more popular than CvS2. I love CvS2 but I know most the top players don't play anymore besides d44Bas and the tournaments are infrequent and not as well attended as 3s tournaments.
    pherai gouki dated gwen stefani in HighSchool. Thats why today she likes all things Japan. smokin.gif

    CvS2 gets play sometimes, but I don't hear too much about it. D44BAS probably still plays(or at least it's still his favorite game) but I don't know of too many people that still do. I'm sure Nuki still likes to play it too. 3S is still popular, though. Not as big as it USED to be, but it still has a fairly large, dedicated playerbase.

    P.S.- Accent Core's only like 5 years old, how is this old school... 8(

    Right, sorry for pointing the finger like that. Just trying to bring awareness to the rest of the players, not trying to attack you or anything.

    Nuki was probably commentating the event, Boss/Rikimaru were probably working or something, and Kuroda rarely ever joins events that has Nuki in it. lol
    nah, I know they are top players, my post meant the best of the best of the best lol.

    anyways does kuroda have beef with nuki or something ???

    Nuki didn't participate MANIAX Vol 3 because he joined Topanga Charity Cup volume 2 on the same day and did the commentary there. Nuki will come back to EVO this year for Tounament of Legends and (maybe) AE so he shows up in mainstream events a lot recently.

    ?!
    "traditional" game centers are a niche
    fighting games are a niche of a niche
    2d fighting games are a niche of a niche of a niche
    having said that and to cut a very very long story short :
    i would say that ,in tokyo, II X is pretty popular
    3rd strike is popular,very popular
    gg..not so much (mikado is the only hot spot)
    cvs2 has been virtually dead for years
    in 2009,the only 3 setups i saw were @ kaikan
    bas and a few other players would go there every friday night or something like that,i was told
    i went back to kaikan in 2010 and 2011 to play 3rd strike and i frankly don't remember if cvs2 was still there
    morikawa @ versus used to love cvs2

    He was in the last Touzaisen, playing Necro. A lot of people seem to agree on one thing: his Necro's not good and he needs to switch to another character. haha

    It seems like Kuroda wants to 'master' these characters and challenge his own skill set and perhaps he has not achieved a level of satisfaction with Necro yet that he has with let's say his Q or even more recently his Oro.

    Where is TM lately? I check all the East vs. West and SBO quals and he is nowhere to be found.

    it's a shame this was the final maniax tournament ? they all were really really good
    i wonder why people around here didn't seem to care much

    as always,loads of big boys showed up :
    boss,mov,match,mimora,rx,matsuken,sugiyama,afm,raoh,tominaga,nakamura,jirou,yakkun,flo,etc etc

    final was [matt - taihei - yakkun] vs [atsushi - rikimaru - 38]
