    Was in Causeway Bay arcade today grabbing a quick dinner and break before coming back here for work, and coincidence enough, there were actually two people playing!

    One of them asked me if I was ice-9, so I guess they visit this site from time to time. They weren't Joe Shun though; apparently there's another arcade in HK that has VF3, Cybercity at Mongkok. If I have time, I'll definitely try to check it out.

    The guy who recognized me played Aoi and Sarah mostly in combination with some other characters (Akira, Wolf and Pai I think). I really like his Sarah. There are definitely too few Sarah players today and his Sarah wasn't even the "typical" type. He had a flawless moonsault and I don't even think I saw him miss once.

    The other player was a Pai player, but I did remember him playing Taka and occasionally Kage. I had a pretty fun time playing with them and although I was a bit nervous at first I became very relaxed as I got used to the arcade. I'm glad that the atmosphere wasn't tense at all, although I thought the arcade was cold as hell and could barely stop shivering.

    You know what struck me the most about playing competitively on the arcade again? The lost art of positioning oneself on a seat. You know how sometimes you're sitting slightly askew and you realize that pressing D/F is actually D? Yeah, that happened a lot, heh heh. But I got used to it pretty quick. Too spoiled by the Agetechs, I guess.

    Anyway, time permitting, I'll try to go to Mongkok tomorrow at around the same time (8 pm to 9 pm). It's doubtful though; I have two projects to finish up by Sunday night and Monday morning. I'll probably post on this thread if I can make it.

    spoiled is a word I never thought could be used in conjunction with an Agetech stick. /versus/images/icons/wink.gif

    Ho ho, tell Joe that he and his friends are toast this coming Friday. /versus/images/icons/wink.gif

    As for the Agetechs...I guess I just mean home sticks in general, but when you learn how to play with a stick on your lap its hard to beat the convenience in the arcade. 'Course, as long as money and quality aren't issues, the arcade rules over the Dreamcast any day.
