KOFXIII Climax, Location Test In Akiba This Weekend.

Received an e-mail this morning from The Professor (MMCafe) to let me know that there would be a location test for the new arcade version of KOFXIII at Akihabara, Club Sega.

After a couple of disappointing visits to play XIII in Shinjuku Carnival, where hardly anyone touches XIII, I'm really excited about this news.

Since I currently have no plans for the weekend I will aim to be going there for both days, if I make it down there I'll try to take some notes.

Shinjuku Carnival

Finally got a little time to head down to Shinjuku Carnival again today, luckily I didn't get lost on the way there or the way back. xD

I arrived there about 9pm (Sunday) and although there were people playing the KOF games there it wasn't really too busy in this section compared to Gundam or Tekken.

During the hour I spent there I played one game of KOFXIII (winning two challenges) and then finishing the game, and then got the shit completely kicked out of me on 02UM.

02UM appears to be the more popular of the KOF games in Carnival, playing on XIII it didn't seem the level was particularly high and not many people seem to eager to play it.

What I like about Carnival is the switch (as I showed in the previous blog entry) where you switch between button layouts, they also had this switch on the KOF02UM machine, and of course that it costs only 50Yen per game.

In regards to my non-KOF situation in Tokyo I still haven't found work yet sadly, and only have enough money left to scrape by two more months with enough money for basic living costs. So if I'm not able to find work pretty soon it looks like I will have to go back to UK at the end of March. :(

It's been fun here though so far, I've really enjoyed meeting loads of new people here and hanging out around Tokyo. Hopefully everything works out and I can stay here FOREVER xD
