Bemani score websites. [25 Nov 2004|06:11am]

I think Bob and I are the only people who do this at the moment, so I'm letting y'all know what's up.

DDR Score tracker:  NNR

They all let you keep scores and compare/rank with other users.  NNR even lets you submit challenges to other users!

8 Greats on Genom Screams heavy double.

That's a 10-footer, bitches.

I kid, you people aren't bitches.  I love you all.

Oh yeah and 8 Greats on Legend of MAX standard single, and I was even fucking around for the first half.

Sorry to brag, there's just nothing else to do.

AMC17 in Yorktown [22 Nov 2004|02:16pm]

[ mood | bored ]

Last night I was at AMC in yorktown and my friend's girlfriend wanted to see me play DDR because she heared i was good. So i play and then I pass the first song i played with half the groove gauge left. And im thinking to myself "what the hell! I can AAA this song at home. Then I go to play Rhythm and Police and I always AA that and I failed helf-way through the song. Then after I failed someone complemented me and said I did well but the 1P pad doesn't work as well. So i found out after i wasted my money on a fail and i got pissed off. So if you are ever there, don't play on the 1P side.


Cross-posted in my personal journal. [22 Nov 2004|04:52am]

Since my birthday is coming up (two more days!), and I've started acquiring birthday good-wishes (in dollar form), I've decided to start up this little progress tracker and donation button, much like how PBS has those corny telethons.  So, without further ado:

Target: $300

Just give it a loving click to initiate the donation process. :-D

So . . . yeah.  Hopefully soon this sweet piece of technology will be operational.  I can't wait to show it to everybody!

Machine Location [31 Oct 2004|09:33pm]

This is for the Machine Locations thats in the communities info. There is a machine in Yorktown shopping center at an AMC 30 i think. I do not know which version it is. Ill have to ask my friends that live in Lombard. I think i might stop by there tomorrow after school and play a coupple rounds. (i go to Montini and i live all the way in Naperville...lol)

[31 Oct 2004|05:00pm]

Hey everybody, good news.

Taiko no Tatsujin (aka Drum Master)  HAS BEEN RELEASED IN THE UNITED STATES!!!

It's $60 at Best Buy, and I highly recommend picking this one up.  Wordsmith bought it, and we had a blast with it!

There are "over 30 songs", according to the box, and most of them are licensed pop/rock songs.  Good stuff too!

Oh, and if you notice a similarity between this and Donkey Konga, you're right.  They're almost identical.  But Taiko was way before DK's time.

New Here [31 Oct 2004|04:13pm]

Hey everyone, I'm new to this community. I really love playing DDR and i love playing Pop'n Music. I got to Brunsiwck Zone in Naperville. And every time i stop by the Fox Valley AKA Westfield mall, i go to Tilt and play a round or two of DDR. But i haven't been there in a while because I have been playing DDR imports alot lately. Are there any Pop'n Music Machines in the Chicago area?

The separation of left and right. [19 Oct 2004|02:34am]

[ mood | tired ]

Yeah, I decided to play Nonstop for once.  Perhaps I should try for the AAA?


My DDR EXTREME status . . . [17 Oct 2004|12:07am]

Remaining songs and their status:

Move Your Feet (1 Great)
Tsugaru Apple Mix (1 Great)
Waiting For Tonight (1 Great)
Drop Out Nonstop Remix (1 Great)
Do Me (1 Great)
Don't Clock Me (1 Great)
Paranoia Eternal (2 Greats)
Wild Rush (2 Greats)
I'm For Real (1 Great)
You're Not Here (1 NG FUUUUUCK!)
The Reflex (6 Greats)

Kids In America.  13 Greats, and I even quit halfway through the song.  WTF is that piece of shit??

Everything else was AAAed using x3, besides Drop Out (x2) and The legend of MAX (x1.5 Reverse).

So yeah.  This is all on a fighting joystick controller, not a floor pad.  If you want to bitch about it not being the pad, first try AAAing everything that I have, on a controller, using the mods I did.  It's still hard.

After playing the game, I've upgraded my opinion of it from "fucking outraged" to something between "pissed off and feeling cheated" and "wishing Konami would choke on a bowl of dicks and die."  I mean, the new licensed tracks are pretty good . . .

[15 Oct 2004|01:43am]


That's how fucking bored I was today.

w00t [13 Oct 2004|06:58am]

Down wit FVB sucka

[13 Oct 2004|03:33am]


I'm so dense, I totally didn't realize that there are new members here.

Like, a bunch of them.

So welcome, all.  Thanks to Taren for actually making a post, and reminding me that the community still exists.  I'll start posting more if everyone else promises to.


Unlisted Machine Locations [13 Oct 2004|01:02am]

In case nobody got the memo, J-toys is moving up the street to 43 W. Golf Rd. They should be open by the end of this week, I think?

Other places have Bemani and whatnot (I don't know if Rockford counts as 'in bounds', but I'm sure if DeKorncob does, Rockford might also)- Nickelworld in Rockford has DDR Extreme (50 cents zomg), and Volcano Falls has Pump Exceed. But you all know that NIU's machine is in the best condition. Spica + Spana.

(reading back to post about Kimo)

Oh yeah, so that's those kids I saw at Mitsuwa the other day. They were freestyling to Light songs, bad enough to make D.J. Spugna cry. I managed to squeeze in a set- Paranoia Eternal, DDR (OMES Style), Sync Heavy, and LOM EX. I heard from Mr. Kitsune that they had gone from "muttering random insults" to "complete shock and awe." I came back 15 minutes later to find them all playing Standard and Heavy songs.

And to squish any remaining rumors, a 20, November tournament is NOT going to happen. I suddenly got busy.

X-posted everywhere, sorry. [18 Aug 2004|05:10am]

Ok, this is somewhat semi-maybe-important.

I need a plain black karate gi (or something from another style that looks similar), but I have no money to go buy/rent one.

So I was hoping I could find a kind soul to let me borrow one for the weekend if possible.

Just looking for plain black (hopefully something without dojo patches or anything like that), for a 6-foot-tall person, about 30" or so waist size.

If somebody can help out I'd love them forever!

[19 Jul 2004|06:19pm]

Hey, just wanted to give an update on the Langer vs. Hopkins Challenge:

Round 10: HOPKINS wins 3 GREATS as opposed to my 7!


That makes it 7-3 now, in my favor. I suppose we're going to 100, right Lauren?

Probably going to update this every ten matches or so.


. . . . probably.

EDIT: Oh yeah, for those not 'in-the-know', every time Lauren and I are at BZ together, we have to throw down and do the Challenge, which consists of playing Look to the Sky (True Color Mix) once. Only one round per day. I've had to live with the shame of defeat twice in a row now. Winner is the one with less Greats obviously, if a tie occurs we go by score. This is assuming we full combo the song (which we always do).

Results so far:
Round 1: HOPKINS wins, 7 to 9.
Round 2: LANGER wins, unknown score.
Round 3: LANGER wins, unknown score.
Round 4: LANGER wins, unknown score.
Round 5: LANGER wins, unknown score.
Round 6: LANGER wins, unknown score.
Round 7: LANGER wins, unknown score.
Round 8: LANGER wins, 4 to 14.
Round 9: HOPKINS wins, 8 to 10.
Round 10: HOPKINS wins, 3 to 7.
