Dont you have something better to do, besides going though all 8 stages on your dc in mvc2 on level 3 and thinking you are a good player.

    Ah... good times in Oki. SEGA has many of those games. If the SEGA you are referring to is the one by the Naval Hospital... hopefully it isn't, but last time I was over there it had most of those games, but arcades are scattered throughout Okinawa and your best place to play games are by Gate2 street. Lots of Tekken comp mainly.

    Yeah.. there's the jungle.. which I'm not a fan of.. and some SFIV machines at the Koza Music Plaza. I don't feel like driving to Round 1 just to check if anyone is there.. DAMN YOU FAMILY MART! You shut down the most convenient arcade for gaijin...

    Yo, you probably won't get this message till then, but I will go to Monkey House in Fukuoka, I am living in Sasebo right now which isn't too far from Okinawa and Fukuoka is between both of us...

    If you get this message, PM me and let's meet up, otherwise, we can meet up and go to Monkey House and try to enter one of those ranbats for 3S or any other game... Just message me basically for any chilling, Okinawa is driving distance.

    I don't think you know where Okinawa is... Okinawa is a tropical island almost 1,000 miles south of Japan..

    I'm definitely down for CvS2 @ Koza Music Town or SFIV anytime we could arrange a meeting. HDR or 3S too, if anyone feels like having a get-together or a base tourney. When do you guys get together, and what do you play?
  • m00bm00b Joined: Posts: 613
    It's something we're trying to figure out.. finding a location / time / etc to play..
    As for what I play.. just a 3S / SFIV scrub..

    did i hear cvs2????

    i play sf4 and cvs2 but i can get down on pretty much any other sf game.

    im usually down to play as long as im not working but that can be very random times.
  • JizzonJizzon ...or Thenarus, whichever. Joined: Posts: 650
    Hell yeah CvS2! Well I work nights during the week (usually until 10-11), so any night I can get out on the earlier side of that, mornings, or weekends...I'm definitely down. Let me know when you're free man!

  • m00bm00b Joined: Posts: 613
    Is that you Roberto? I just ordered 2 new TE-S SSFIV sticks for PS3 from Amazon.. so now all I need is my disc back.. I hope they'll be here before this weekend. When SSFIV comes out here I'll run down to GEO and grab a Japanese copy and then it's on.

  • kinkey21kinkey21 Joined: Posts: 132
    jizzon: if you want lets play at noon today. gullivers on gate 2 has both those games but im not sure where else does.

  • JizzonJizzon ...or Thenarus, whichever. Joined: Posts: 650

    GGS to kinkey21! Thanks for reality checking me in CvS2 =P Gulliver is a sweet little FG arcade, good call on that too.

    On another note, anyone wanting to hold console sessions or tournaments, or that has any information about the ones that run (like at Foster), PLEASE POST HERE. I've got a pretty good capture device on the way, so match vids could be recorded. 360 and PS3 TE FightSticks too, which I'm happy to bring along depending on the console to be used.
  • m00bm00b Joined: Posts: 613
    Are you off this weekend Jesse? We should do something this weekend console wise. I didn't know that Foster had a scene. Roberto hasn't posted since the last Okinawa thread in summer last year. Since SSFIV comes out on the 28th here.. I think we should get together and play a bit. I'll be at work but I'll toss you the yen to pick up a PS3 copy at GEO if you're off Jesse. Hopefully my new TE's should be in by the end of the week.

    Saturday's good for me during the day; I could just meet you at Koza or Gulliver, whichever you prefer. 080 4365 1050

    As for the Foster tournaments, they used to run a monthly SFIV one out there, but it's been awhile since I've attended one so I don't know how they're doing now. The possibility and interest are sure to be there at the very least (especially once Super hits), so if there isn't anything in development, we should help make that happen.
  • m00bm00b Joined: Posts: 613
    I'm thinking Saturday around 11.. grab something to eat and play some SF. Koza or Gulliver's is fine for me also.. just got my cell phone back 090 6865 4124

    Sounds good man. It might be easier/more efficient for us all to park by the USO at Kadena, then carpool. At 11, all of the fast food places are open, so there's Hotto Motto, Coco Ichibanya, McDonalds, and so on; we can figure it out when we meet up. USO @ 1100...that work for everyone?

    EDIT: Shit, I totally spaced that I have a final Saturday morning! I won't be able to make it out until around 1300. So...just let me know where you guys will be, and I'll meet you there as soon as I can.

    13 is fine then.. we'll do that. Also news.. both of my SSFIV TE-S sticks came in.. just need a PS3 copy of SF4 since Roberto still has my disc.

    I have a PS3 copy of SFIV we can use. So, Coco's, then game on, sweet.
  • m00bm00b Joined: Posts: 613
    So if we don't want to bust yen out we can play at someone's place. My dorm room is kind of small but we can play there. I don't have a 360 or a backwards compatible PS3 so it's SF4 or HDR.

    LOL well I've played HDR quite a bit more than the other fighters recently, and T.Hawk is a bastard. Whenever you guys are down for more matches of anything, especially HDR and SSFIV once it hits, just let me know and we'll make it happen. GGS yesterday!
  • m00bm00b Joined: Posts: 613
    Little over two weeks and we'll be getting it on til the break of dawn when SSFIV comes out.

    I've been trying to find info online about the SFIV tournaments they used to hold @ Foster...with no luck. I first heard about them on the radio; it was at their club, down below in the diner area. The reason I'm bringing this up is because we should definitely help define a scene out here and encourage people to get in and see what it's about. To do that, we're going to have to be able to advertise and organize, of course!

    Venues should be easy enough to secure; for consoles, there are plenty of options with use of base facilities, so long as we can get them secured in advance. Equipment-wise, we have all of the systems and controllers covered, really, and even some TVs we can bring. (Hell, we'll be able to record match vids soon too, yay!) Another nice thing about playing on base is the chance to get "sponsored" by the Club or something; there's probably money or prizes to be had if we know where to look, along with the usual entry pool splits.

    The question is, where to begin the search? The Community Center would be a good start, possibly the hobby shops...

    I know there used to be a video game swap on Saturdays at the Schilling... Jesse played in a tourney in the Med Group so there's definitely a lot of other Americans that play.

    I work nights, so anytime during the day before 1400 works for me. Next week I'll be on days though, so maybe I can make it out to Gulliver's.

    Time for one of the originals to post I guess. I was in Oki from 2k1-2k8, so I dunno how many other things have changed.

    There are basically 3 "regions" for Oki players, the furthest north arcade that gets regular players is Gulliver behind Kadena, the furthest south is Naha(a few out there). You guys in the northern camps, don't bother looking for anything up there, there is NOTHING. I have searched for 2 of those 7 years, so save the gas and go south.

    North
    First, Re: Hitech Sega Chatan Plaza(the one on the 58)
    This closed last August, and all of the community there moved to
    Club Sega in American Village(behind Jusco). This is pretty much the hub for Tekken for the northern section of the (arcade inhabited)island, and has been one of 2 consistent SBO qual spots(the other being Game in Naha 1/2). IIRC this year they also have SF4 quals. This arcade has the most people that actually remember me. lol

    Dragon Palace
    Has misc FGs, but is notable in having most racing games and was(when I left) one of the last places in Oki to have the Deluxe F-Zero AX cabs. They have long since erased my records off of there if they still have it. =/


    Gulliver
    If you get there before midnight, they will let you hang out till they close which depending on who's working and how many are around can be as late as 4AM....lol Good for you gold carders/non-Marines. They should have SF4/T6/VF5 and a selection of old school 2D games.


    Yumekuukan

    There's an old busted up building on the opposite corner of the 58 from Foster, the one with that bar on the top whose name eludes me atm. On the first floor is an arcade which is pretty much like the Okinawa ver of CF without the amazing players. You can go here if you have nothing better to do around Foster and wanna get some random games in, their selection is pretty random. IF it still exists.

    Central
    Amusement Space Eagle and Eagle 2
    These arcades are over by Kinser, Eagle 2 is right off the 58 by Kinser Gate 1(walking distance for anyone down there). Eagle 1 is a little further north, as you're heading back towards Futenma. The exact way to get there is to go north from Kinser Gate 3 on the 58, you'll pass by the 58 Bypass(there's a huge AnW on the right). You'll see a forked path before you continue going off to the left and up the hill to Futenma, you take the right at this overpass(kinda hard to miss, it's the only major road over there), and head uphill for a bit. Once the hill levels out you'll see a Pachislot joint, and right after that you'll see Eagle 1 on the right. Both of these arcades are on the small side, but have solid KOF, T6 and VF players. Eagle 2 is the meeting place for the central area players. These are pretty much the only 2 arcades in that area. Just like the big gap between Club Sega/Gulliver/etc and Eagle, Eagle 2 is the last thing you'll see worth going into until Naha.

    South
    Game In Naha/ GIN 2
    GIN is easy to miss if you're not looking, but it's on Kokusai Street dead center in one of the busiest areas of central Naha. Once you find that, then walk about 2-3 blocks further down and you'll find another arcade which I never got the chance to translate the name of. The other GIN is supposedly a block or so south from the first one, but I've never found it. It's pretty buried in the area back there.

    Game In Naha is more often than not the Okinawa Qual(final qual) for SBO. They usually have the latest games, several T6/VF machines, and whatever is hot. They are usually VERY busy because of the location. Do NOT expect to get parking nearby.


    This isn't a complete list, and I'm just going off of 2 year old memories. Hopefully you guys have JP cellphones and some knowledge of the language, you should be able to find the other arcades using the GPSs that should be built into most models nowadays.

    Re: MCCS support/local on base community building
    You guys have it WAY easier than we did, since SF4 came out. But basically you get with the club managers and SMP managers, tell them what you'd like to do, and they should have no problems with you using the facilities. Army-side it should be easier, but I dunno and StridaJin is in Afghan sooooo

    Just print out fliers and see who you snag up. I met 2 great players that way, one dude was basically offering his XBox(old one) to anyone that could beat him in 3S.

    Good luck guys, and by all means try to talk to the locals. The regulars back at Club Sega are all cool dudes, and will try to talk to you given the chance. Some even know pretty good English! Hell, almost everyone is chill as fuck, I've hung out, drank and played casuals with these guys for years. Don't get stuck thinking you have to stick to the Americans.
