Playing SSFIV AE in Japan
« on: March 06, 2011, 11:40:09 PM »
Been in Japan for a week and have had a few games at Shinjuku Club Sega.. getting butt kicked but its interesting seeing all sorts of people playing here..

Even saw this girl using Vega/Hakan which was very cool.

Lots of Makoto's ive seen, there was even this ZakBennett dude which apparently is some top UK player here owning with Yun.

Would be good to see how some of AU's guys went in the arcades here!

..Had a go of SFIV on 3DS as well, the screen on the thing is surprisingly good..the weird rear angle view is a bit odd, otherwise, pretty damn good.

Zak Bennet is an awesome Balrog player who also used Akuma in vanilla - he kinda dropped off the radar for a while so its cool to hear he's still playing :D

Heavy: Yeah only one so far, he was pretty damn good too..no card/name or anything..

Gamogo: Cool, did a bit of googling and apparenly he also has a pretty high ranked makoto here..

was interesting to see some games here, seems pretty high level and there was rarely a scrubby match..

If you want monsters, go to Game Safari in Ikebukuro.
I was there on day1 of AE and killed TKD's Elf a few times.
Got demolished by Daigo and Mago though.

Im in Osaka now, only played in Shinjuku so didn't get to see them at all. Playing a few at the Namba Club Sega here

Had an interesting conversation to some locals tonight - a married couple in fact who played SF every night - in their 30's - Who'd have thought. She had a few other female friends there all playing..and they were all pretty decent. Very cool.

Stuck some SFIV stuff on my blog - http://aaronactive.net - expanding a bit more on the guys I spoke to and a few other bits and pieces.

Was in Osaka when that earthquake occured...we actually felt the ground move (and I've never felt one a quake before) - while it was nowhere near as bad as tokyo, there were people walking out on the streets..very weird. Didn't hear about the devastation until we got back to the Hotel (lifts closed) and saw what was happening on the TV they brought out..horrible shit and lucky to get out of Tokyo on 2 days before it happened.

Hope your trip is not hampered by what has happened Aaron.

Also, hope Akira's family and relatives back home are safe and unharmed.

They exist? I heard of such mythical creatures but have never seen one before.  :D

thanks man,

unfortunately i didn't get their details

people trip out about the hotel room..while you're in there, i didnt really worry too much..i knew they get that a lot and the place was built with a bit of swaying in mind...
