    New video from core-a gaming How to get to Arcadestream

    Hi all,

    I'll be staying in Seoul for a few weeks. Was just wondering when the ArcadeStream weeklies were, and what day they were held. Also looking for any local arcades, interesting stores, or some people to hang out with.

    Yo,

    Where are you staying and what games do you play?

    We are having our USF4 monthly next Saturday (5th) starting at 7PM, registration starts at 6, casuals will start way earlier than that.

    Kind of off topic guys but I'm gonna be going back to Korea later this year and would an unlocked phone bought in the US work over there? I use one of those unlimited 30 day plans every month and was curious if they had similar stuff in Korea? Don't like contract plans.

    Stuff like StraightTalk doesn't exist to my knowledge. An unlocked phone does work over here, and as far as I know, as long as you're not buying a new phone, you won't need to sign a contract, just sign up for service.

    Okay that sux. I use something similar to Straight Talk so I was hoping they had the same type of services over there which would've made things a lot easier. Thx for the help.

    No prob, but I'd say that contractless plans will be similar in price. Now, I'm paying like $45-ish for a plan with unlimited talk & text + 3GB data on KT. I'm on contract, so I tacked on about $30 extra a month for my phone. So it's reasonable TBH, FAR better than going through the big 3 in America does you.

    If you got the Straight Talk special, like Unlimited Talk & Text + 1GB data, it'd run you far less than you'd pay for it on Straight Talk or the other ones.

    The only thing, and I totally forgot about this, but MAKE DAMN SURE your phone is able to do CDMA unlocked. You should be fine though if you have an unlocked phone in this day and age.

    CDMA not GSM? Ok I have a GSM phone now so that's a huge detail, thx for that. Guess I gotta get a new phone before I leave. Really helpful info, thx again bro.

    Well, wait, what model is it?

    A lot of GSM phones also do CDMA nowadays just for the global roaming purposes.

    Do it before you leave. Most carriers unlock military phones for free if you are about to be deployed.

    I dont know when my shit will arrive, but I brought my benQ, hori vlx, wii u, and Xbox one. Guitar hero live son. What does everyone play on? I assume ps4 since that's what everything is on. I forgot to pack a 360 stick. Whoever is on base can hit me up for games til I figure out what's going on. I have like a month of training or some shit before I get to the kennels to train another month with my dog.

    Grab Kakaotalk for your phone.

    I play on 360, and Steam. Other guys around here play on Steam and PS4 as well. ArcadeStream runs stuff on PS4.

    If you need something set up for mods or something, hit me up and I'll help you out.

    Sweet. If anything I'll order a 360 stick or have my homie mail mine. As long as it's sanwa I can use any stick though. I'll get kakaotalk today. I'll be grabbing a alienware 15 soon since a decked out gtx 980m package with extras gets a big discount for military. My VLX is a LS-56 with sanwa buttons. Hopefully I can hit up whoever is on base, I need to start playing more.

    I think I can anytime since I'll be registered today, but I am in training status for two weeks. I'll know more soon, but anyone on base hit me up. I got kakaotalk and I'll have my phone today.

    I know my cousin got in on August, and had to wait two weeks before he could be approved to leave?

    May be different depending on the person/position, so IDK.

    2 weeks of curfew, I can go out, but gotta be on base by 10 pm. With what I do I'll more than likely be worn out by end of the day.

    I'm in Osan now after being in for Kunsan for two years.

    I don't really play fighting games anymore and haven't taken them seriously for about the last year. New SF coming out is like a new expansion pack for an MMO so my focus has primarily been music games in game centers here for a while.

    Cool, well if you wanna play when I get my shit finally let me know.
  • MegamannyMegamanny Joined: Posts: 1,002
    I'll probably get really involved with SF when 5 comes around again.

    Been too busy with life to really invest in other games aside from music. Suwon is where I've been going for DDR, Drummania, etc. I'm way better at music games than I am at fighting games hahaha.

    Beta for SFV was really fun, the skill level difference was pretty bad. I think I played about 8 hours total and lost 6-7 matches, about 3 of them vs teleporting lag rashids. People still were doing bad habits from SF4. Once it's out people will adjust better. I'm hoping capcom stops with some of these nerfs though.

    Do you know if there is a gaming group facebook page or something? I haven't been able to find anything for Osan.

    Me and Samson got games in yesterday. He has a good Chun we had a good long set. I think Chris is on base this weekend too.
  • MegamannyMegamanny Joined: Posts: 1,002
    Yeah. Samson is around here I forgot. I think he leaves soon? I can't remember. I spent most of my weekend playing DDR at a game center nearby.

    Yeah I think he has 6 months or so left. I just been getting ready for Monday. 2 hours of a PT smoke session. So excited.

    I'm getting widely different results - Very rarely 4, sometimes 3, mostly 2 and a few 1s and 0s.

    Anyone in the Daejeon area? Off topic but how does one find apartment info? Gonna be moving back this year and this time it's gonna be permanent so need to find a nice place to live before heading out. Have no clue where to start. Is SF5 already dead there?
  • Missing PersonMissing Person Givin' dat ho ho ho dem eyes. Joined: Posts: 13,643
    Sf5 is easily alive. Dunno about Daejeon vut we do have weeklies on Saturday here in Seoul. As far as finding apartments there's apps like Dabang and Zigbang that you can look through.

  • scratchbackscratchback Joined: Posts: 1,015
    I'll be leaving on Nov 30th to Korea so hopefully I can meet some of you guys down there. I quit playing SF5 a long time ago but who knows I might pick it up again casually. Hopefully ps4 sticks are easy to find there and won't cost me an arm and a leg lol.

    I would suggest going through Laugh at etokki.com for one of the Omnis, best stick on the market plus being shipped from within Korea.

    Otherwise, might want to head into Seoul and visit one of the technomarts.

    Anyone wanna help a scrub figure out how to play SF5? Would love to get online games with anyone in Korea/Japan. Finally found a place that had a stick a few days ago so just getting back into 5. I was quickly reminded why I quit this game months ago lol.
