    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?
    damn dude its been a while!

    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.

    If you email me the details of your hotel i can give ypu a better insight and train roites.

    Is anyone clued up on the Fukuoka fgc? I know of the gamer's club but is there a lot of arcade action for USF4? I'm moving there soon, hard to find a lot of info online.

    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.

    Planning on being in Japan in July, either in Osaka or Fukuoka for 5 days. Regardless of which city I'll be staying near the Korean consulate for a visa run. I have already researched about Osaka, but what arcades are available and decent in Fukuoka?

    Ohayou Gozaimasu! O-Genki desu ka, i'm currently in Ayase/Atsugi curious if theres anyone in that area that knows some good local arcades. Going to Akiba every weekend gets pricey ;)

    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.

    I'm not that good but me & my son play coop (& finish Legindary on all the previous Halos). We will be on Halo 5 as well (preordered at Amazon JP).
    Also have Star Wars Battlefront (XB1) on preorder.

    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?

    My XBL is Talim JP too so you'll have no prob findin me.
