    Hi everyone.
    Bringing a PS3 & two TE1 sticks to a burger/beer place in Bupyeong, Incheon this Friday (12/12) at around 6:30.
    Planning to play USF4 and some HDR.

    The place is called GrabaB (http://websta.me/n/h2sjoeQ).

    Here's the address:
    부평대로 40번길 4 Incheon, Korea 403-820
    It's kind of between Bupyeong Station (Line 1) and Bupyeong Market Station (Incheon Line 1).
    You can check their Facebook page for a map.

    Message me on Kakao for info.

    Edit: Just talked to the owner, and he'll offer 10% off your food if you play at least one match.

    Just beginning to dip my toes into the ocean that is the FGC and wanted to introduce myself. I live in Dongjak-gu, and it looks like CafeID is the closest to me. Anyone here frequent there?

    In Dongjak? At Dongjak station?

    CafeID is harder to get SF4 matches at. Closest to you if I'm right about your station would be Cong, and you could take Line 9 over to Express Bus Terminal then transfer to Line 3 for Nambu. It's pretty easy to find.

    Otherwise, I'd go to ArcadeStream, even if it's further out of your way.

    I'm right by Jangseungbaegi station (line 7), but it looks like you're right. Other than CafeID, which I had such high hopes for because it's so close to my house, Cong looks to be the closest. But I might give them all a look just to get a feeling for the places.

    Edit:
    Guess I should add this, too.

    Quick question guys, I'm gonna be moving back to Korea later this year and this time I wanna bring my stick but will there be any issues at the airports? I doubt airport security know what arcade sticks are they'll probably think I'm some sort of terrorist or something lol.
  • Angry AbelAngry Abel Joined: Posts: 387
    Brought mine over and had no issues. Just put it in the luggage wrapped in towels.

    Didn't take it as carry on luggage though, so if that's your intention then I have no idea.

    The event is completely free to enter. There is no venue fee as well.

    But if you're late for the event, you won't be able to enter the venue cuz its limited capacity.

    Hey, guys. I'll be spending my summer (from the end of May 'til mid-August) in Seoul. However, I don't know whether I'll be able to bring my stick. Would that be an issue if I were to visit ArcadeStream/Cong Tuh/any other console gaming center?
  • busyyuubusyyuu Joined: Posts: 15
    Hi all. I might be visiting Korea for vacation in June. Does anyone play Marvel and/or is there a hub that would be good to visit for doing so?

    There's an insane amount of sticks. I never bring mine from home. You're all good!

    I play at Cong a lot and there's a tournament this weekend so come on by in June. There should be plenty of people ready to play you!
  • busyyuubusyyuu Joined: Posts: 15
    Hey awesome! Is the Cong in Seoul? I'll probably be visiting there the whole time, but I may only get a day to check it out. I'll be there from June 4th-11th, so is there anything going on around that time or should I just drop by on any day?

    Dude, wish I could have gone to Korea when you were still around ^^

    Btw, I typically use a 360 pad. Would I need to bring anything to Cong or can I just presume they have stuff already there that I can use?
  • xero15xero15 Follow me on Twitter Joined: Posts: 4,074
    Take your pad just in case

    So I'll be staying in Hongdae this weekend (Fri / Sat). Hoping to finally get to visit Arcade Stream.

    Anybody going? I play GG Xrd (badly - would love some help) and was semi-decent at SSFIV, but haven't played for months.

    Hey guys. Mentioned I would be visiting Korea a while back, will be heading to Seoul in a few days now. I know people recommended that I visit The Cong for some umvc3 action. Anything special happening from June 4th-11th? Any other places one might recommend?
