I mostly just wanted to say hi with this post and see who's out there and what kind of community is left in Portland. I'm not really looking for solutions to my DDR problems right now (though I'm totally appreciative of any feedback).
What up man, Portland and Vancouver are pretty dry these days and I don't see many people playing except for a handful of regulars. I typically play at Big Al's (either of them) and Dave and Buster's. Big Al's has the best SN2 cabinet in town and the rest have various flavors of Pump.
Avoid GK like the plague if you want to play just DDR, their machine sucks balls
