Welcome, Elise!   I never got into IIDX or Pop'n, besides a few games every now and then, so don't feel as if you have to like it. Smiley

I wish we had a Jubeat machine because I really enjoy that.

Hi, I'm Elise. I live in Seattle.
I "main" Pop'n, but I also enjoy playing DJMax and DDR (very) casually, as well as other non-arcade based games like Osu, Project Diva, etc. I'm probably in the minority in the Bemani community in that I'm not into IIDX, but I'd like to change that now that I have access to a machine (Round One opening might be the highlight of my summer)

I am not that good at Pop'n at the moment despite it being my favorite but I'm trying to get as much practice in as I can.

Nice to meet you all!

Hello,
My name is James, and I am actively trying to get a job in Seattle. Currently, I work as an Epidemiologist in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. However, I made it to a few final round interviews for some epidemiology jobs in Washington, but nothing has panned out. I have a few more interviews lined up. So here is hoping I get a job there sooner, rather than later. I will be bringing an ITG dedicab, a pump GX, and a pop'n cab with me.

Hello everyone!

About me:

Sarah
22
Started off playing DDR and have been playing for well over 10 years. Took my love for the games to the next level, working my way up in arcades to head technician and "Guardian of the Games".

I also am nuts about Guitar Freaks, Drummania, Pop'n, Tecnika, IIDX, Taiko Drum, DJ Ray Max (iphone "Tecnika") and various fighting games.

I recently moved to the Boise area from Sacramento, and have been rotting away in Boise because music games don't exist aside from the occasional SuperNova or Extreme DDR machine. I've been spending my time at a barcade called Grinkers, but they're mostly 70's - early 90's games (they do have a Street Fighter 2, original Mortal Kombat, Simpson's, and TMNT, which is the only real redeeming factor).

It's really refreshing to see a community still alive, and I can't wait to be a little more involved in the scene again! Smiley

Hi Sarah!
I moved to Portland from Boise!
I used to replay at Pojos a whole lot as well as at the edwards Supernova.
There was also an extreme at a bowling alley at Emerald Lanes, Used to be two extreme's at the BSU game room and a crap extreme at ice world.
Very surprised I never ran into you.
Music games are indeed dead over there, glad you found the community.

My buddy loves the drums on RockBand. I never got expertly good at any of the Bemani games except for Taiko, DDR/ITG, some PiU and DJ Max Portable. I'd like to get better at Pop'n, but I don't want to shell out for the pricey controller and don't have an easy way to play any of the home versions of the game. I never got past Medium difficulty on Guitar Hero. Fun game, but I could never shift my hands from the first 4 colored fret buttons positions.

Hello all!

I'll be locating to Bellevue in a few days for work and was googling around and...

I found this forum while trying to do a search on ITG machines in the Seattle/Bellevue area. I personally don't play dance games, but I'm relocating with my fiance (and he is extremely spoiled by a well maintained and very custom loaded machine in Harrisburg) and I was hoping to find out more about the dance games community in the area. It looks like we'll be checking out Acme Bowl, but I would love recommendations from the locals as well! Please forgive any ignorance on my part with my lack of knowledge about the area and dance games. Smiley

Welcome to the Pacific Northwest, and congratulations on your fiance's new job! I'll try to give you a brief rundown of what we have here.

Some of the more popular machines in the area are the ITG and Pump it Up Fiesta 2 machines at ACME Bowl, the DDR extreme machine at Tacoma Narrows (I think? I don't play DDR much, so someone else should correct me if I'm wrong), and a few other rhythm games at Gameworks in Seattle (Technika 3, Taiko, GF/DM, Pop'n Music 14). There's also a Pump it Up PRO 2 machine pretty close to you in the Power Play in Bellevue Square, but I don't think people have been playing there much since ACME got Fiesta 2.

Hopefully our machines will live up to your fiance's standards. Smiley

Looking forward to seeing both of you around!

Name: Andrew
Age: 20
Appearence: 5'9", wear glasses, half asian, longish hair

This is the first time I've really introduced myself to this site although many of you probably already know me by now. I mostly play ddr (and some pop'n) at gameworks, though I try to go to ACME during the weekend to play itg. I go to UW currently so for anyone else who goes there feel free to say hi if you see me.

Also, I'm the guy who won the ddr tournament at sakuracon this year do I get some sort of achievement for this? Smiley

My ex had a Konami ASC.  That's honestly one of the only things I miss about that relationship.  Tongue

With regard to Pop'n: I have a busted Pop'n Fever in my apartment, and as soon as I get the guy who sold it to me over to look at it and get it up and running again, you're welcome to tag along sometime Ben comes over and play or something.  Smiley

And no worries with regard to sucking at dance games.  This summer marks my 10 year Bemaniversary, and I have only gotten worse since age 14 or so. There are so many of my old DDR scores that I can't even TOUCH now that it's not even funny. :3

God I wish I could've brought the KASC, it's pretty nifty, but it belongs to a friend of mine and I'd feel like a total ass if it got damaged in flight or anything like that. Anyway, not a huge deal. I'll just play lotsa Pop'n. Usually I can switch between the two games and get mysteriously better at the one I haven't played just by playing the other.

Also a warning ahead of time, when I go this long without playing dancing games and start sucking again by my own standards sometimes I get really mad at myself. If this happens, please stop me <3

No complaints in that regard though. Nice to meet you Hollie!

Um, I'm discovolante/discovigilante/AIDZ, from Portland, although I'm studying abroad in Sapporo, Japan right now. I've played dancing games since about 2005 when another user on this board, Phylicia, brought me to an arcade and taught me how to use the bar and stuff. I'd say when I left America I was a really shitty DDR player, now I'm just kind of shitty. I went from having a stagnating 97 AAA's to 231 in about three months by playing on a Japanese X cabinet. I like competing in tournaments much more than just playing alone, the direct competition and social aspect is just so much more fun. I also play ITG, Pop'n, Pump badly and Stepmania pretty decently. When I come back to P-town you can catch me playing DDR at Ground Kontrol and ITG at Tilt, though I hope there's a better location by the time I'm back for both games. Right now I play at a dinky arcade called Archie/Adores which allows smoking but has a bunch of weirdos and is cheap. I like it a lot.

I'm 21, a Japanese major, although my goal right now is to graduate and then move into sports journalism (maybe in Japan maybe not). I normally study at Portland State University but am at Hokkaido University right now. I love burritos and music and movies and sports and all that shit. I swear too much and can't keep a train of thought. Anyway nice to meet you all again.

Uh... yeah. Old intro thread is old. Maybe we should *all* reintroduce ourselves...

I'm Laura. (Yes, really. Go figure!) I'm married to Tony, who posts as ancsik on this forum.  He's a software developer. I'm back in school getting my Bachelor's Degree after taking a few years off to work office jobs. It's weird being a Junior in college when three years ago I was a Junior in college! Anyway, so there's that. My ultimate plan is to go to law school.

I've been playing dance games since 2001, and while I'm one of the worst players around, I'm one of the most devoted to the community. I love to run tournaments, host get-togethers, and do everything I can to facilitate fun for my nerd forum buddies. I basically grew up with the DDR community, as I started posting on my local dance game forums when I was thirteen - because of that, it holds a special place in my heart.  My favorite music games are Pop'n Music and Drummania.

Uh... yeah. Maybe that was too much? Anyway, let's see what everyone else has to say about themselves as an update!
