Hey everyone, long time no see.
So today I went for a run to the local Round One in Takatsu, Kawasaki to check out Virtua Fighter esports.
Overall it was great fun to get in some matches again! I'll definitely be heading back again soon.
- I have no idea where my VF5FS character cards are, they were probably thrown out years ago, so I went and got a new aime card to start from scratch
- aime card works with many different games, whereas with VF5FS you needed character cards only for VF
- One aime card stores your stats for multiple VF characters and other games too
- aime card cost 300 yen
- aime site is in English too, and easy to login with SNS account so glad I won't need to remember another username / pw
- At around 10:30 AM on a Thursday, very few people in Round One
- No one else playing VFes (in this arcade)
- I selected arcade with online battle possible with anyone in Japan (you could limit to only people in the same arcade if you wanted to)
- You could also choose training mode while waiting for online matches
- Even at 10:30 AM, it quickly and continuously matched me up with online opponents
- You get to loose three different online matches before needing to put in more money
- You can request rematch after each fight (whether you win or loose)
- This cabinet had option to connect your own USB controller
- I can't remember the last time I played VF, still I won 9/12 matches and got promoted up to 7 kyuu (maybe lots of new players, rusty players, or it matches with people of similar skill level)
- It was a lot of fun to play and I didn't notice any major lag
- I haven't played the game for years, and never was super technical with my control, so even if it played a bit differently from local comp I wouldn't have noticed
