How was it? I went to one of these a couple of years ago. Pretty interesting... far more cool shit than the TGS!

It was really cool - Mostly because it wasn't 1000% beyond capacity like a comiket event and you could have really good conversations with anyone whose stuff you found appealing. Until today I had no idea how many Japanese people check this forum for the high scores but I had quite a few tell me today that they're well aware of this place.
Anyhow, there were a lot of really interesting things for sale - dozens of superplay videos (I bought a lot!) papercraft and perler bead stuff, photography (apparently someone else is doing what I want to do! I bought a few copies of a book documenting shitty / nasty arcades) model kits, t-shirts, extreme pornography (Darius Burst - really?!), art, hacking guides, music CDs, etc.. It was almost overwhelming there was so much to look at.
There will be another one in May, and I definitely plan to attend that one as well.. But yeah - way more interesting than the TGS.. 8) Oh, and admission was free. FREE! in Japan!! Can you believe that?!
Not to mention that outside the venue there was an awesome Tower of Power / Earth Wind and Fire cover band playing. Awesome time today.

Oh shit! I just realized that that I missed the event. Sorry guys :oops: . Thanks for letting us know about the event Rancor. Wow, pretty cool to hear that some JPN folks know about this board! I hope I get a chance to go to something like this soon. I also wish that I actually kept track of dates like a normal human being.
-
Maybe we can do a meet-up at Mikado in the near future. I live really close so we could drink whiskey at my place afterwards.

Colour me intrigued. As a slightly OCD Darius fanatic, I wasn't aware such a thing existed. Not that I want to whip out the old 'skinhead wearing a polo-neck' and liberally cover my immediate surrounding area with trouser custard to any of it, but I'm curious to know. Was it just women having it off with mechanical fish? :?

I was honestly too embarrassed to look beyond the cover - but yeah, from what I saw it involved fish men, heavy bondage, starships, and copious amounts of ejaculate.

Partial list:
Battle Garegga, Pulstar, Gunhed, Tatsujin, Raiden Fighters 2, Ghost Pilots, Raiden Fighters JET, Darius Series, Raiden, Super Raiden... and many more.

Probably won't make that, but I will go to Mikado tonight if anyone's interested. Meeting a certain Italian player that hasn't popped in here in quite some time.

Around what time? I want to give Solar Assault a whirl.

Edit: Actually, looking at their list, 2 of the games I wanted to play are out of comission...

Lunardei. He's probably at 35,000 feet now, heading back to Italy. Was nice to catch up.

I played Solar Assault. When it came out, it would have blown me away. Now, looks rather dated. But, not bad. If you fap to Gradius you'll of course love playing as the Vic Viper.

I just subscribed to this thread, I'm always missing something. We should do another Mikado date sometime soon, I live 10 minutes away by foot. I was there on Sunday and one of their vintage Darius cabs started smoking from the inside. It took the staff member like 10 minutes before he realized he had to bust out the fire extinguisher. Major bummer

I saw your tweet about that. So sad...hope it was just a monitor and not the boards.

A meetup should definitely happen soon. I'm free pretty much whenever--weekend after next would be good.

Definitely set aside a day in April for a plan I'm trying to form. nzero and burgerkingdiamond are both gonna be in town, and my party pad will be complete. I just bought 2 Blast City cabs today to go along with my mini-cute that I've been restoring to perfection. I have a stand-alone building here, so we can do some karaoke in here if you guys are up for it as well. Of course drinks will be served.. 8) Only problem is that I'm on the outer-outskirts of Tokyo.. haha. Closest station is Nishiaraidaishinish on the Toneri liner from Nippori station (Yamanote line).

I saw your reply as well. Yeah, I'm not sure what happened. It stank like burning plastic in there so I got out pretty quick. I'll have to go back and check on its status sometime soon, maybe when more of this snow melts.

@ Rancor: coolness, I keep an eye out for an April meet-up on this thread.

Yo MDL we're still meeting up with cuilan on Sunday right? Anybody else is welcome to join if it's still going down.

Here's my thoughts: start out at Shinjuku Taito Station (south exit) to play Senko on some NESiCA cabinets. I believe this arcade has NESSiCA cabs and if not we can go somewhere else. Meet up there at say 12?

Then after that head to Ebisen. I have to meet up with some players there at 4 to discuss some stuff so maybe try to get there at 3?

Let me know what you think.

Yeah, we're still on for that, though if you can do Saturday that works better for me. Didn't you say the Sega arcade in Shibuya was the one where people still played Senko, though?

I could do Saturday if that works better but I'd probably just go to Shinjuku/Shibuya with you guys and head home after that. Do you want to try the Shibuya SEGA arcade? Can't guarantee that there will be Senko players but we can give it a try.

I wish I knew some JP Senko players so I could call them out to play with Cuilan, but I'm afraid I don't. Hey got rid of their head to head cabs on the shooting floor AFAIK but it used to have good Senko competition, so that might be one place to try as well. Maybe we could go up to the fighting game floor and highjack a cab for some senko action.

Either way, Shibuya or Hey I'm down.

My schedule's a little up in the air but I can let you know later tonight for Saturday or Sunday (might be busy later in the day on Sunday--I can definitely do it part of the day but I dunno yet if I'd have time for Ebisen afterwards). As for where, doesn't matter to me--Shibuya or Shinjuku is easier for me, though, and should be less noisy than Hey. Too bad about how they took out the dedicated Senko cabs, but not a surprise. :(

Let's do Saturday at 4 at Hachiko dog statue Shibuya station.
We can get some games and then grab some pizza afterwards. If we want to shmurp a little bit we can head over to Shibuya kaikan.

MDL took me to Hey a few days ago and I saw one person playing DUO on a Nesica cab. I thought I could challenge him by playing DUO on the other Nesica cab next to him, but sadly that was not the case. The guy then left after losing to the CPU. Oh well...at least I got the 3rd best score for Cuilan in single player mode!

Also, I'll be at any get-together that MDL goes to, so long as it's before the 26th. Unless I find a job while I'm still here.

::shakes head::

Yeah that is sad that even Hey does not have a head to head NESiCA cabinet. I assume there are some on the fighting game floor so that's probably worth taking a look at. Anyways at least we know it doesn't work on the shooting game floor.

Did you get the 3rd best score for Cuilan on the leaderboards?? Or just for that cab?

::starts practicing Duo:: lol

Honestly, I'm not sure. I'm still not very familiar with how this Nesica thing works.

What kind of kid are you raising that isn't gonna come to the game center with you, GP? :) One of my favorite Tokyo sightings was a boy still so little he had to stand on the bench to play Darius with his dad.

As it turns out, Sunday is probably open after all, so I'm down for Sunday as well as tomorrow.
