SF3S isn’t the only game I play in the arcade, but I thought I should pick it up because my coworkers and friends treat it like their religion. After awhile I realized that some people refuse to let go, because for them it’s one of the most entertaining titles after all this time. I am nowhere near the best, but I feel the basics are simple enough - know the range of your normals, know how to kara throw; if you can’t parry, block more, etc. I rather not play with the regulars at our arcade in particular, because if you can’t win a round you are nothing to them.
I had the pleasure of meeting Luis Dubuc (Mystery Skulls) at my job. He says it’s his favorite place in DTLA. I’m honored he chose us. TOO RAD! ^_^ on another note, I feel that galaxy leggings are one of the best things that’s happened to me fashionably.
I started working at Japan Arcade last year, July 2011. I’ve only been there a little over a year, but I still feel like I was hired yesterday. However, I’ve been visiting Japan Arcade since 2004-2005 (long before my boss took over the property) and I’ve been fortunate to see it transform into the place it is today.
My coworker recorded me going head to head with one of the regulars at Japan Arcade, I had to defend my honor. I played them and won both sets 2-0, only half of the matches were recorded. I feel those guys respect me more for stepping it up, all while feeling humiliated. Despite my wins, I see now where I pull too many unsafe moves. That just means there are things to improve before our next match.
