Nice! Oh, what memories the retro cabinet brings.
IMO, the stores will be stockpiled on your next trip because people are afraid to come here! You will load yourself with games!

.. as long as there is a Japan! Egad.


People are currently wondering what will become of the Tokyo Game Show, prediction is the city will still be short of electricity by then.

I'm not afraid of a little radiation! (actually I am, I hope the country's in better shape by then)

you think they'll be out of electricity? interesting... I guess that's a possibility. Japan's pretty screwed right now by all accounts. Maybe I'll just to go Osaka instead :3

A little radiation won't hurt!
Actually, I'm afraid I might've inhaled some Plutonium... Was outside during a seriously bad time. Oh well.

Actually, east Japan including Tokyo is short of electricity even right now; they have scheduled blackouts every day from region to region so that the whole east Japan electricity grid doesn't get knocked out. Central Tokyo is currently an exception because it's the center of the country's economics.

The summer is expected to be real bad because everyone needs electricity for the A/C!

[edit] I want to go to osaka too.

yeah, I'm a jerk! I promise eurotrips and don't deliver! but it's never my fault, so all is excused (in my brain). your cabinet is great. Is that from neo arcadia? I think I asked that already, and may have the name wrong anyway.

Maou, are you bay area too? Didn't realize. Ktallguy and I have hung out already, but not since I got the cab. but it's not configured for MVS stuff yet, so you can't reeeeally play fighters just now. It's only got A, B, C. no D! I'm working on it!

I am indeed...we should remedy your unused cab situation, if you have time! A pal at Capcom and I caught up with Ktall last weekend and he said you two had already crossed swords (I'd somehow mentally misplaced you into LA up until then). I think he's here for most of April, and aside from the sakura matsuri over the next two weekends, pretty open---we should be able to rustle something up if you're game.

As for Dark Kombat in hell...I think that the Playstation port of Street Fighter Zero 2 would do. Nothing tortures like having something gorgeous that's been hideously marred. And I don't mean like this.

To sum up the main post in this thread....

+ Brandon sleeps naked curled up in fetal position inside a box (he provided the picture), in the vein of the titular character of Jim Profit.
+ Brandon is a tsundere and ask people over to his house in a tsuntsun way.
+ Maou is a yandere, and takes Brandon's advances in a different way that they are intended; smiling at the prospect, he already knew were Brandon lived and slept before he could even think of pointing it out.
+ Iggy and Chaz watch the action from a proper distance while praising their haircuts.
+ I'm snuffing around were I shouldn't (?). Big news.
+ There it was this Vampire Savior ~game ~scene ~let's ~encourage website that I didn't know of? Cool.

At least we are back to the oldschool dates. Sunshine! Warm evenings! C-League baseball is not over!

Also, between the ZZT4 T-shirt, the Megaman Universe towel and the Bumpy Trot 2 postcards, it's quite amazing how many goodies from last year will now become collector/cursed items.

Aha, O-town, I had no idea you were so nearby--maybe you made it to the Fox Theater for the surprisingly fun revived X Japan "San Francisco" show in Oakland a few months back. What is the state of your A-B-C-D button situation? Whether or not Ktall is free to come with, it's always fun to head across the Bay...if the mood strikes, drop a line to maoujacky at hotmail dot com and it'll forward to me and we can scheme. it all depends on your skill

The X Japan show was surprisingly stellar even though they failed to resurrect Hide's ghost.

Speaking of arcade cabinets and the Bay Area, hot damn, there's a new (!) game center in California, and it's not in SoCal (!?!). The fact that it's in the outskirts of Chinatown just like NY's grimy-delightful Chinatown Fair Arcade makes me happy somehow.

On-the-ground report of SF's new Southtown Arcade: pretty fun! It's quite modest in size, about 10 machines, but it's pleasantly bright for an American arcade, though the walls are a bit sparse..they need more of the fun posters they have framed. Some pretty decent people on the SSFIV AE and Marvel machines, though very very very happy to see KOF XIII and more importantly, a working IKARUGA to play. I told the guys running it that it was pretty classy to have that in the mix. Cabinets looked a little weary on one hand, but they were at least nice Japanese-made (right down to the LED displays) so that two SSFIV machines could play against each other.

...hey Brandon, maybe they'd know where to get some decent repair buttons?

I went to south town arcade as soon as they got their CvS 2 fixed. It is pretty nice! I definitely felt like I was in that "good enough to beat my friends, but not good enough to beat these guys" situation there, which is a good place to be, sometimes.

"HYPER" , posted Mon 18 Jul 18:46post reply

Some guy in the UK, which I presume to be a former operator, is getting rid of his Hyper Neo Geo 64 stock on eBay. This allowed me to acquire a Hyper Neo Geo 64 motherboard along with three games (Buriki, Asura and WA) for the grand total of 30 - just under $50 for you crazy Unitestanese people.

I had never dared bring one back from Japan because of the weight and size of the motherboard and given the price (shipping included), it was an offer I could not refuse. The machine barely fits in the SNK cabinet I mentioned above, to the point that I suspect my cabinet was the benchmark SNK set themselves at the time for how big the HNG64 could be. I am enjoying Wild Ambition much more than a decade ago.

Has anyone tried to play the two racing games with a stick? Is it necessary to play them with a racing wheel?

"ARCADE REBIRTH" , posted Tue 16 Aug 12:40:post reply

Preposterously, another new arcade that has opened up in the Bay Area over the last half year. I literally did not know this was possible in US. The game center's name is, ah, Game Center.

Things that are rad:

1. San Mateo, so more space and thus widest and least cramped American arcade I have ever seen

2. The bizarre vacant lot it faces. The sights include A) wall graffiti that says "I love you" instead of something mean and B) a misprinted "Costumers Only" sign beside the donut shop, which I mistook to mean cosplayers at first. If I weren't so lazy I'd make a photo essay for Insert Credit about it.

3. Many machines: SSFIVAE, MvC3, Third Strike, Puzzle Fighter, free vintage Namco machine, Ikaruga (but see also the Bad Section, below), 2 Gundam games (huh?), Tekken 6, Mushihime, tons o' SNK

4. Chargable play cards so you don't have to get quarters, and nicer cabinets than Southtown


Things that are bad:

1. The owner is apparently insane and thinks that the awful Ikaruga-like game he just substituted in the Ikaruga cabinet is "better than Ikaruga."

2. The inexplicable "rental section" corner of the store...rent old consoles by the hour and play in the corner of the store? It doesn't hurt anyone, but the selection is transparently half-assed and clearly just from junk lying around the house. Are people going to rent a Game Gear? Or play the strategy RPG Dragon Force for Sega Saturn incrementally by the hour? WHAT

3. Relatedly, one friendly young guy at the counter who was telling us how this absurd rental worked seemed to be seriously, genuinely impressed by the fact that they had a Dreamcast VMU and showed it to us like it was something exciting. At least I didn't have to feign interest in a PS2 memory card. Kids these days.

4. Where is KOFXIII?

Doh! Just noticed this call out.

I'd definitely be up for a bay area meetup. I haven't been here very long, so I'm always glad to meet new and friendly faces (especially if they play Street Fighter).

Don't worry, I'm totally nice and clean and unabrasive in person! Just ask Mr Tim Rogers, or Stabo or Red Falcon. I bet they don't even remember meeting me!
