    Hey, sf head here. Just joined the meet up group. I was interested in learning bb. You guys know any good spots in Chiba or Tokyo [i live in tsudanuma] for beginners in bb? Any help would be appreciated!

    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.

    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?

    You should be all good. I strongly recommend connecting via cable and NOT wireless.

    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.

    I have been on it since the release the other night... pretty good so far. I am actaully likeing juri the best ATM.

    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.

    What time are you going? I'm still at my old company now (I don't start until oct. 14th) so my hours are still rough now. But if I can manage to get out at a decent time, I might swing by.

    Hahaha! Nahhh! After that I went to Taito station. I won a few against the lower level guys and held my own against the better players; couldn't win a game against them though.

    Nishikin, kyabetsu, and Burio (my friend) were there and handing people there asses. Now THOSE guys are legit.

    GG's though man! I hope to see you again soon (at a much earlier time than today).

    Wow, you guys are still here. It's been a few years since I looked at this forum. I wonder if Iparryu remembers me at all. It seems the planets may have finally alligned for me after all these years and I may try to get to Evo for the first time. Problem is I haven't really been playing fighting games much in the last few years. Good news is I have some time to catch up and new games to try. I just picked up GG Xrd (I have no idea how to play this game) and am waiting for Tekken 7 to be released. Was playing Ultra and TT2 off and on for the last few years, but I think I got worse. :persevere: Still here in Nagoya though. Anyone ever get to Evo before?
