    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?

    I picked up XRD as well. Still suck, but I got sick of ultra and I am mostly on League now. On a huge losing streak on ranked too...

    I am moving now and dont have my internet yet, so expect a delay on seeing me online.

    'ello. I'm visiting Japan on the 13th of April for a week. I was looking for a place to stay and had a question. The location I'm looking at is in Shibuya but a short walk from Shinjuku. Would traveling back and forth from Shinjuku and Akihabara for a 2-3 days feel like a big hassel? I've never been to Japan before so I'm not really sure if I'll be entertained enough to stay out all day and only come back for sleep or if I may need to return to rest my feet or store my purchases, ect. Just wondering if you think I should rent a closer location or if that'd be fine.

    Shibuya isn't a short walk from shinjuku... Trust me, i used to jog that 4 days a week.

    Thanks but I think I got it. The room I'm renting is at Nishi-shinjuku-gochome station. So I just ride the train to Shinjuku station then take the Shinjuku line to Iwamotocho and walk the rest of the way. About a 30 minute trip according to 1 of the like 5 apps I downloaded onto my phone. Not too bad.

    You can't access the servers or you can't find anyone to play? I had a problem like that. It's best to just make a new account/user for Japan.

    Hey, I live in Tenri, Nara and I'll be here for another 10 months. I've been to a few game centers in Nara, Osaka and Kyoto on weekdays and weekends but they've been mostly empty. I'm looking for a healthy Ultra Street Fighter IV scene, but I don't know where to start or who to talk to about this.

    Is Ultra not all that popular anymore or does everyone elect to play at home rather than at a game center?
