    I got the JP version of SSFIV so I have to wait until August 8th to get the upgrade... not wanting to buy it again for JPY5k.

    Going to Mikado tonight to play the updated version of Ultra. Come say hi if you see me. (the only gaijin at mikado that plays USFIV and 3s)

    Still pracin, didn't know the game was so deep and have been busy at work.
    The game is also faster (paced) than SC so it'll be a challenge for this old guy!
    Still need to get my combos down.
    Have Aug off so once Ultra hits will get on that and polish up.
    After it'll be online and arcade time!
    Soul Calibur playa since 3/27/03- SCII hit JP Xbox.
    Talim and Talim ONLY playa.
    SC playa to the end.

    Sup,

    I'm pretty sure I've asked this before on these forums a long time ago but I'm looking for Street Fighter players in the Tokyo and Saitama area who frequent game centres. I'm relatively close to places like Ikebukuro, Shinjuku and Takadanobaba while also some places in Saitama along the Seibu lines.

    For those that don't usually go to the arcades I also have PS3 and PC Street Fighter, please add me. PSN: Gouki Satsujin and PC via Steam: supergoal

    I do have a few pretty decent SF RL buddies that hit the game centres here as well as PSN. More competition the better we all get.

    Hi!

    I introd before but many things match up w/what Higashibashi is lookin for.

    I live in Chiba and work in Saitama (near Omiya, Utsunomiya Line) and have PS3 (and 360).

    Still in the process of movin from SC (Soul Calibur II-IV; 10 year playa) and playin SF.
    Switchin (still play some SC) cause Talim's not in the game and hardly anyone's on SCII HD.
    If a new SC comes out w/Talim I'll be on that pronto and 100%.
    SF's probably always got someone online and is in every arcade.

    One of my JP friends (God of Pad, Shen) just won the SCII HD comp in EVO (if you saw the side comp in the Mad Catz booth).

    After March next year my place in Chiba should be open for gamez occasionally (son is 3rd yr HS so has to study for uni exams so house is closed for business).
    Also have a friend that can play SF near Ageo (but he doesn't seem to like the game so much).

    Also hopin to hit the arcades (prob in Aki and Shinjuku but anywhere in Tokyo will be OK).

    Wanna be above a button masher so am still pracin (when I have time and am not workin, the process slower when you work 6 dayz a week).
    Gonna be hard (impossible?) to catch up on a game that I never played, where others have years more experience on.
    Have most of Aug off from work so should have lotsa time to do more things then.
    Will be more ready after Ultra hits console next month (and I get some prac time on it) and then hope to start things rollin.

    Don't drink but love food and if others drink a little it doesn't bother me.

    I'm older (born in '67) and am prob an average playa but try hard.

    I'm moving soon to Japan for work, from August I'll be on the island of Shikoku. I doubt it, but are there any Persona 4/Blazblue or Melty blood players here? I dabble in UMvC3 aswell.

    Need help on registering a NESiCA Card for playing USF4. So far I've found this guide: https://jiyunajp.wordpress.com/2013/03/08/guide-registering-a-nesica-card/
    The guide is really helpful but I was wondering if anyone had tips on how to sign up for USF4 in particular. Cheers for the help.

    Side note:
    Living in Seoul. First trip to Tokyo this Saturday (7/26 - 7/31) - certainly not my last. Staying in Ikebukuro - playing at Taito Station South Shinjuku. At home, I play on Japanese servers as does all of Korea. Xbl: shania twajn

    doing exactly what that guide said would get you your card...

    I am with a group of people in Takadanobaba quite frequently and we can do Shinjuku as well. Safari in Ikebukuro is also really good for USF4.

    I would reccomend:
    Takadanobaba - Mikado
    Ikebukuro - Safari
    Shinjuku - Sportsland or Taito (over by Greanpeas not the one by Donqui Jote)

    What's up Everyone. I'm kind of out a ways in central saitama area. My closest game center with USF4 is about 35 min away in Omiya. I go there once or twice a week. On Thur nights there is usually a good turnout of fairly decent players. If anyone is ever down to meet up let me know. I'll try to make it out to some Tokyo stuff once in a while as long as my pockets can handle it.

    I go from Chiba to Omiya every day for work.
    I can't do gamin Thur nights though, my arcade night is usually Fri.

    On SCII in Aki Try Tower Amusement Fri nights (just got back from some now).

    After Ultra hits console hopefully I'll be ready for some Ultra arcade action (the SCII gettin fixed at Try is gonna cause a problem here...).

    Do you know the Japanese characters for south shinjuku taito station? The guide says I need to select it when registering. Cheers.

    Also, is Tokyo a prefecture? (東京都)?

    Hello there. I'm Roddy and I've been living in Shiga for 4 months. I have played SSFIVAE a little bit on my XBOX360 before moving to Japan and would like to start playing again. I got myself a PS3 and there are some things I'm trying to figure right now. To start with, what kind of internet connection should I go for? Right now I'm using a friend's wifi, but I don't think it will be enough if I wanna play online. Also, any good game centers for USFIV around here? I'm living in Otsu, 15 minutes by JR from Kyoto station.

    Howdy there. For internet I have Hikari fiber at my place in Nishi-Tokyo. The lowest you should go is Yahoo BB. You also need to ask your landlord to see what they can get at the building you are in.
  • RoddyRoddy Count Blankula Joined: Posts: 112
    I just checked and yeah, I can get Hikari here, so probably that's what I'm gonna get. How's PSN for Ultra? Should I expect a lot of lag?

    Hi. Been in Japan for more or less 2 years. I used to be a competitive Tekken player a few years back, then switched over to SF4 since coming over to Japan.

    Would love to meet some new people, and do some online or preferably offline sessions.

    I just bought USF4 last night and got some games it. By the time the dl finished and what not, i had drank my time away and it was almost 0200... so only a few. I played in the arcade a lot, but I got some good games in and practiced a few things that I couldn't do at the arcade.

    See you around.

    Glad you're happy w/it, from what I've seen it looks pretty good.

    Guess SC (II) is my game and where my heart is but we'll see what happens.
    10+ years of (playin) history and the time needed to learn a new game weigh heavily.
    With SCII fixed and in my arcade again made a big difference although there's only playas there on Fri nights.

    On vacation but haven't played any gamez, have been puttin a time into archery (modern recurve) and hope to get some cyclin down once the typhoon passes.

    USFIV news:
    Vacation costume sets out next Tues.
    There was a small update (move properties where changed but it wasn't a re-balance patch) yesterday.

    Hey guys! So I'm going to be studying abroad in Nagasaki at the Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies for this fall semester. I'll be there from Sept.14-Jan.6 so I was just curious if anyone knows about a Nagasaki FGC scene there. I would love to meet up with anyone who is over there and hit up the arcades. I'm also going to try and visit Fukuoka on some weekends since I've heard some real strong players go there to play.

    I mainly play USF4 but I also play UNIEL, BB, and KOF13.

    Thanks!

    Hey all. I introduced myself to this group about 3-years ago when I moved to Tokyo, but I was completely busy with work and never had time to play.

    I will be changing my job soon and my work/life balance will be changing; therefore, I will be getting more time to play. Actually, I'll be working for a video game company in Shinjuku, so I'll be really close to Taito station all the time.

    Hopefully, I'll be more active on here as well.

    By the way, I think I remember you Talim_JP. I also played SC for several years under this same name and often commented in the forums (8wr and sc.com).

    Yep, one and the same, nice to see ya again!
    My thread in 8WR is still goin (was on SC.com till it was taken down).

    Tried a little SFIV and decided that ya I'm stayin w/SC only till the end.
    Now on SCII HD Online, PS3 and 360 (US version of the game), cause Talim's not in SCV.
    10+ years of Talim and SC under my belt (SCII-SCIV).

    I also go to Akihabara Try Tower Amusement (arcade) on Fri nights (they have SCII and SCIIAE) where you'll find me on the SCII machine- 2 gamez for 100 Yen baby!

    The EVO champ (God of Pad) prac'd at my place before going to SCR (got 2nd) and EVO (got first man!) in SCII HD.
    Many of the old greats also hit Try on Fridays (Dekka Cho, Chyomo, KT Voldo, HK, Ushi etc).

    Congrats on the new job and if you are down for some SCII let me know.
