    I didn't know you were here on Oki until 08. I got here in 06. Anyway, I checked out the American Village SEGA and wasn't impressed. We just go to Gullivers now. I was kind of angry when I came back from Afghanistan and SEGA was closed, but I guess it turned out for the better since I didn't know about Gullivers and it has a better selection of fighting games than the old SEGA (minus ST)

    Do you know where JOYBOX is on Okinawa? I played BR against this female local and her card read JOYBOX. I couldn't get much more than it wasn't the one in Tokyo and that there is one on island

    The only prob with Gulliver back when Hitech was around, is that not many ppl went to Gulliver until later in the night. But yes, most of the smaller arcades tend to have a larger selection of FGs. There are 3 little spots off of Koza 4 Corners(one is to the west, closer to Gate 2 on Gate 2 Street, the other is north on the 329, maybe a block down, and another even further, maybe 3 blocks when it starts to go downhill again) that are similar, but Gulliver is the best one concerning overall skill.

    Club Sega is horribly mismanaged when it comes to FGs, and I'm still pissed that Hitech closed. Then again, Hitech didn't have all the fucking card games, horse racers, and purikura to support it like Club Sega did so it was a matter of time....

    I'll get back to you on JOYBOX. I remember finding it once. I remember it being north of Kokusai Street though, as I had to go there for a Tougeki qual back in '05.

    No prob, I wish I was still there. lol Like my disclaimer says, I'm a 3d FGer, so yeah, my impressions are towards those games.

    That was GIN2. That one is way the fuck off the main street, not really worth it for where it is.

    Hey team, great games this weekend. Gulliver kicks so much ass!

    I went to the BX last night; they confirmed that they will be receiving plenty of 360 and PS3 copies of SSFIV on the 27th :woot:

    I'll be on days next week, just in time for SSFIV and some ranbats. Have a feeling we'll all be seeing a lot more of each other soon :wgrin:

    kinkey, I vaguely remember you calling me earlier about HDR; haha sorry if I was out of it (was riding at about three hours of sleep at that point). Anytime you can give me at least a day in advance, I'm down man.

    What a night! SSFIV's amazing; many thanks to kinkey for picking it up, and moob for letting us jam at his place all day. Great games! I may have nightmares about Rose and Guile tonight, heh.
  • kinkey21kinkey21 Joined: Posts: 132
    ggs everybody. that was fun.

    just waiting for my copy so i can practice
  • m00bm00b Joined: Posts: 613
    It was definitely fun. Also.. Guile with shades getting Rose Ultra 1'd is probably the coolest thing ever.

    You guys down for setting up at the community center this weekend? I'll go tomorrow or Thursday before work and check their policies, but it shouldn't be a problem. I'd like to jump in head-first and set up a tournament for maybe the end of the month, just to see what kind of reactions we can get. The biggest thing would be advertising...
  • kinkey21kinkey21 Joined: Posts: 132
    ahh i finally got a little sleep.

    I'll be at work until 2200-2300, after which I'm definitely down for a set. Might be able to get out earlier; if I do I'll give you a call.

    !!!bump for games!!!
  • JizzonJizzon ...or Thenarus, whichever. Joined: Posts: 650
    GGS kinkey21; we have to get in more matches before you head out man. So happy Gulliver got SF2 back, and they'll have KOFXIII in a few weeks, woo!

    Also, oozing head wounds suck.
  • JizzonJizzon ...or Thenarus, whichever. Joined: Posts: 650
    Glad to meet Sal and David @ Gulliver tonight! I left there after 0100, and there was still a crowd around the KOF XIII machines. How to learn the game without getting crushed every time...

    moob, if you read this, I have some books you let Jessie borrow. That, and we need to get together again and rock some Street Fighter =)

    kinkey21, hope all is well for you back in the States. Miss playing you already.

    David and Sal...when do you guys hit Gulliver during the week? And when are you making it back, m00b?

    Gulliver switched their machines around a little bit again. The Samurai Spirits/KOF2002/Garou machine is in the back next to Hyper SF2, they got VF5:FS and the newest Melty Blood, SvC Chaos is on the multi-machine in the back (maybe it was all along; never noticed it until tonight)...and they have fucking RAINBOW EDITION SF2. I can't stop laughing long enough to win a round XD

    They still don't have CvS2 or MvC2 back out on the floor yet though, bummer. I do like that they keep their floor "fresh" by rotating through older games.

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.

    Could somebody give me the run down of the local arcades? So far I've been able to find the one by the music store (Kozu music?), but that doesn't seem to be the one most people play at from reading the rest of this thread as they only have SFIV and none of the older games I've seen mentioned.

    I'm going to be in Okinawa for today and Sunday, I mainly play SFIV, but I play most other SF games as well.

    Thanks

    Cool, welcome aboard the Oki-train, Mike. The best arcade for fighters is Gulliver; go out Kadena Gate 2 and go straight, past Koza Music Town and the police station, past the turn toward the zoo, down the slight hill where the two gas stations are there's a 4-way stoplight. Gulliver is on the corner just past the light on your lefthand side; it has a yellow sign with blue katakana and some neon around it. (You should be able to see the arcade games inside from the road.) If you see a Hotto Motto on your left, you've just passed Gulliver, but on the road roughly in front of that is where you want to park. There's a 2-on-2 Hyper SFII tourney @ 1900-2000 tomorrow; you should spectate or grab a friend (I might have one there who knows how to play). Look forward to meeting you man!

    Wow...I'm new to random team pairings for tournaments. Was a lot of fun though; god the CE characters are sick.

    Most importantly, CvS2 is back out! Woo!
  • magneto_xmagneto_x Spirit of Truth Joined: Posts: 1,339
    1 week to go, I can't wait to finally be somewhere else. When I get there can someone please hook me up with some play!!! I'll play anything.

    Thanks for the really detailed directions, I ended up missing the arcade but saw the hotto motto and was able to find it. The staff and people where really nice and helpful, I even got to play in a random 2on2.

    I have no idea when I'm leaving, but I'm going to be there this weekend if I can, hope to see some of you there.

    Thanks
