    I was wondering if someone with experience in the
    Virtua Fighter culture could give me some advice in finding
    a competitive or at least local/semi-local VF4 arcade?
    Please help. I have been itching to learn this game since I
    happened upon this site. P.S. I live in the North Bay Area CA.

    Hehe you're in luck. There's a pretty hardcore group of VFers in the Bay Area =P

    The nearest VF4 machine is in Sunnyvale Golfland down in Cupertino, CA. But now that we have PS2 VF4, we tend to play at someone's apartment (either in San Francisco or in South Bay) as opposed to playing at SVGL (plus PS2 VF4 is ver.C, whereas the arcade is ver.B). If you're interested in meeting up, send me an email at feixaq@pobox.com

    P.S. If you happen to drop by in another city, go to VF4fx [locations] to check out the list of VF4 machines in the US. (Click on sig below for link).

    Thanks alot Felix Q. I checked out the location in Sunnyvale on Yahoo Maps. It's just too far for me to drive. I live way north of you guys. Santa Rosa. -It's all bad- Guess I'll have to wait for my American PS2 version. I'm still on this site daily though. Don't know why... I just am.

    Agree with shadowdean. The only arcade I know with VF4 in NYC is the one in chinatown, and only a version A. (is there any place else?) At least the machine is in good condition. In general, the arcade in USA sucks -- they don't even offer a sitting unit!? -- well don't get me started.

    Bottom line? Open an arcade yourself -- I wish I could.

    Hey piccolo, thanks for telling me that. Someone told me it was version A weeks ago, that's why I thought it was v.A. Did they upgrade it recently?? Because I kind of remember seeing someone escaped a back throw? it was long ago though.

    Supposedly, Ver A was only released/available in Japan, and for only about a month before the upgrade to Ver B. Every US VF4 should be Ver B, except for the test version that's still in Chicago, but that is *not* the same as Ver A according to many here. According to Dynamic League/Derrick Lynch, Yu Suzuki has said Ver C will not be released outside of Japan... /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif
