NYC Arcades


#1

Where do people in NYC play? Specific names and where they are at is cool, I can find it from there :slight_smile:


#2

Chinatown Fair


#3

Does anyone play near times sq? My Girlfriends apartment is on 47th so it’s just a short walk to arcades there…


#4

CTF is at 8 Mott St.

It’s like 20 feet from the corner of Mott and Worth.

You’re most likely better off going there. Everywhere else is kinda crappy.


#5

Other than CTF, there isn’t really anywhere else in NYC that has high level competition.


#6

Once I was playing at chinatown fair, being scrubby and stuff. And then people are like “Hey, BAS!” I’m like “…”


#7

There is an arcade at Leisuretime Bowling in the Port Authority that has decent competition if you go at the right time.


#8

Oh shoot! That was you? hahahaha…

You played K-groove right? 'sup BAS!


#9

Yeah, I used K groove. K-CBS mostly, with some random people thrown in. Did I ever see you? All I remember is there were these two guys who thought I was great and always asked me for advice. But then Justin and Eddie are two feet away :lol:


#10

I’ve been at CF with a tall white guy who talks in a homosexual lisp and a smaller Puerto Rican kid. We all use A-Sak, Bison, Blanka. It was before last ECC or last year’s March Madness I think. My gay voiced friend asked me why BAS was here. If I remember correctly, I told him, “Shut up.” :lol:


#11

When do you go? I go on Fridays from 4-6 and random days along the week and sometimes weekends.

I play the teams in my Sig. Just look for the asian guy with glasses wearing gloves.


#12

Oh man, I think I know who you are now.

Did you use P groove your first match at ECC8?


#13

Yeah I used P-Cammy, Eagle, and someone else. I think I parried nothing at all. I died badly :slight_smile:

Anyway, since I’m in Hong Kong now, I don’t play at CF anymore. But it should still be the place with the best competition.

… also, there are maybe four trillion A-groove bison/blanka/sakura users there so I don’t recognize any of you guys :lol:


#14

I was the person that played you. I was suprised when you picked P. I was like, wtf? I was so used to you playing K.


#15

Hi DP CC spammer! :slight_smile:

My P groove reason was because I was like… “ok… so it’s my first tournament, and my execution will be totally crap. I will also play more conservatively than usual. Therefore, I must pick the most difficult groove that requires superb execution and taking of calculated risks, because I’m a dumbyhead.”

This is something that everyone should do.


#16

Yeah I understand.

I know, I did abuse the cc back then. But I learned my ways now. :smiley:
