    No special events I know of, but I'd recommend hitting up ArcadeStream though.

    Awesome, thanks for the tip :) Any particular days/times when these places are most full? I'll probably only get one chance to visit each place (The Cong and AS) since I'll be vacationing with the wife, so I'd like to make the most of my visit if possible :)

    If anyone's around, going to try out arcadestream in the evening today, will probably try cong tomorrow.

    edit: Upon further research, so wait, is AS actually just a darts bar with occasional fighting game events? If that's the case maybe I'll try Cong today instead.

    AS has SF most days of the week, if you have Kakaotalk get at philly-one before you head out to make sure.

    RagingStormX, why does your name sound really familiar? I've been here in Korea for a few years already and I know some people on here. When I go to Osan here in November I will jump back into fighting games. Been out of it since I got to Korea due to DDR And Pump It Up hahaha.
  • SamsonSamson UNLIMITED Joined: Posts: 290
    Manny (and anyone else lurking in the area), there's a local tournament tomorrow here in Osan July 3 @ 1300 in the E Club ballroom. Did you extend in Korea?
    Relax and take notes.
  • MegamannyMegamanny Joined: Posts: 1,002
    Yeah. I extended in Korea. My follow on is to osan sometime in November (though I hear rumor that might change)

    Unfortunately I have a doctors appointment tomorrow so I'm staying in gunsan although I will be in osan on Saturday for a little bit.

    I passed word about the tournament to some buddies of mine here in Kunsan and they said they were interested so maybe they might show.

    Will you make it to the Saturday tournament?

    I rarely pay attention to this thread since I'm usually too far away to go so I was unaware there was a tournament going on. But I will be at Osan in November/December for a year so I'll definitely be going more often.

  • nokonoko Joined: Posts: 2
    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.

    Well, wait, what model is it?

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