    Have been busy & haven't gamed much recently (work, gym, archery, カラオケ, sleep).

    Mad at Bungie for no coop in Halo 5 so don't play it (I'll watch my son play). Only want to play Battlefront w/my son (& he's busy).
    So that leaves USFIV for me to prac to get ready for SFV. Hope to get some bread & butter down in that so I can go online.

    Now w/some SC news comin (hopefully soon) we'll have to see. If there's a new SC fighter w/Talim in it then you know where I'll be.

    Welcome to the island!

    I start work on 6th and already have plans for tomorrow.
    Everyone's New Year's vacation is comin to a close this week.

    Have to work the next 20 some dayz w/no day off and haven't practiced USFIV enough to even go online or play in the arcade...
    If we met somewhere in Tokyo I'd have to be some evening and I'd need to not stay out too late (cause I have to get up at 4AM or earlier).
    Shinjuku or Aki are easy for me to get to and go home from.
    Shinjuku has Club Sega and Taito while Aki has Club Sega and Taito Hey (I haven't been in any of them recently so don't know how the USFIV action is though).
    And ya, get ready for loud noise (I wear earplugs) and cig smoke (I don't like it but got more used to it from workin/livin here, haha).

    Did get the Borderlands Collection for XB1 so me and my son can get some split screen co-op down.

    Also am gettin a PS2 to PS4 Brooks converter (we'll see if it works w/my MAS) and Paradise OBS-MX buttons for one of my sticks.

    On PSN I've made a community group called Japan Fighters for easier matchmaking. SF5 isn't out yet so I can't set it as the main game but if you look for communities under DOA5FR you should be able to find it.

    Hello!
    I'm going to Tokyo for a day trip at the beginning of March. I'm hoping to visit Mikado and find a PS4 Arcade stick (TE2+ or VLX - they're crazy expensive here in Korea, like $400-$500 because of import charges). Could anyone recommend a place to go?

    Thank you!
  • Talim_JPTalim_JP Talim Practioner Joined: Posts: 99
    Best place for sticks would probably be someplace in Akihabra. Yodobashi Camera (opposite the Electric Town side) probably has the most choices- & think it's duty free so take your passport.
    GL & let us know how your stay & shopping go.

    Yodobashi Camera & Bic Camera are big electronic store chains so you can find them in many parts of the city- Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro etc.

    So I'm going to Japan soon. This may be a long shot, but is anybody aware of an upcoming arcade-related event or perhaps a loketest for anything during the second half of March? Right now I only know of Dengeki spring festival, which would be right up my alley, except for the fact that I can't make it.

    My guess is probably not to expect to get that lucky, in which case I do already know where to find the arcades in Shinjuku/Akiba. This is my first time in Japan and my main purpose is to travel the country and I don't think I'll hole up in an arcade for more than a day or two.

    Also, can anyone be bothered to explain how the arcade player cards work? You know, the ones that load your profile and rank. I'm wondering if I should have my own, if just for the novelty.
  • Talim_JPTalim_JP Talim Practioner Joined: Posts: 99
    I was/am an arcade SC playa so I'll help you relating to that.
    Usually comps at the arcade are on Sat & Sun. I'm sure if you go to a big arcade there will be good playas so you'll have fun & be challenged regardless (course evenings, are best).
    I don't know anything about the cards, course in the arcades is SFIV only.
    The cards are maybe ¥500 so I'd prob be a good souvenir for you if you want to pick one up.

    Okay so I stumbled on Jiyuna's guide on getting started with a Nesica card. The registration is more convoluted than I thought, although the post is old and who knows if the process has changed since then. For example, the link to register for each Nesica-enabled game is dead.

    shinku 1- In Osaka went to an arcade called Kohatsu for SC comps in the dayz.
    I know Heart Nana is down there, check out the arcades in your area. You might get lucky & meet somebody.

    Angry Abel- Glad to help.

    faiyez- Ya they don't make it easy.
    Google Translate is your friend.

    All- I've been thinkin (big mistake, haha). I've decided I'm a SC or nothin man so am off the SF (didn't do it much anyways) & now play SCIIHD only.

    I'll still be here to help in anyway I can.

    Don't know about Kobe or Kyoto but in Osaka there's a new gaming bar called Cross-Up that just opened and they're running mainly fighters on their systems. Their twitter is account is here: https://twitter.com/CROSS__UP
    There's also a monthly/bi-monthly tourney called Mixup Night in Nipponbashi (Denden Town) that starts at midnight and ends at 5am. Works well if you can play all night or have an easy way to get home if you feel tired. Mixup Night's twitter is here: https://twitter.com/mix_up_night. My PSN is the same as my name on this forum so you can add me, just lemme know you're from SRK cuz I get a ton of requests due to my short username :/

    One more bar just opened up, called Taisen Game Bar 236, here's their twitter account, https://twitter.com/gamebar236
    They're around the same area as Cross Up bar so if that place is full you can go to the other one and vice versa, but keep in mind that 236 does board games/retro games as well so it's not a full on fighting game bar like Cross Up.

    Hey, I'm from Nagoya. They have tournaments in Urban Square arcade in Osu. Look for the whiteboard calendar outside by the Denny's entrance. I'm pretty sure I saw Guilty Gear on it once or twice at least.

    Any facebook groups or stores that have some SF5 setups? I live in the Fussa area and go to Akihabara often for music games. Getting back into SF with 5 after not playing 4 once Ultra came out.

    Have a few buddies that play on base with me at Yokota.

    I don't know of anywhere that has a sf5 set up. But I'm sure it exists somewhere. I think Ryan saw a bootleg pc cab once somewhere with the game. But I'm guessing you are gonna have to go to weird like console hangout places to play it.
