I was curious to see if any of the staff knew what kind of rhythm games the arcade would have this year. I know last year space was cramped so it didn't seem like there was as much variety as 2012 - with gaming looking like its back in its old location though I thought it might mean more games!

Any clue on what's been booked? I'm really curious to know which DDR mixes will be there :)

Thanks in advance!

You are indeed correct about there being less variety and space last year compared to 2012. There were about eleven fewer games compared to 2012.

The Hilton's ballrom wasn't ideal in terms of space, layout, electricity, and location. Like you said, we're back in the International Ballroom in the Hyatt, so we get the same amounts of space and power as we did in the past.

I can't give you specifics as to what exactly what games will be making it (because it depends entirely on how well we can play Tetris with the trucks), but there WILL be two DDR's. Versions are still up in the air, but at least one of them will be running something newer than last year.

I'd like to know if there's gonna be a IIDX machine there this year. If so, I hope it's not the Gold machine you guys have had in the past. If possible, it would be really cool to see a SPADA version there. If Kansas City can get that at a mall arcade, there's gotta be a way to pull it off for a convention.

I highly doubt there will be one at ACen this year.

There will not be a IIDX. The last machine to go to ACen was the Gold machine you referenced brought by Phorrest back in 2009. If you'd like to talk about why no 2Dux at the convention, find me in the arcade. I'll be wearing a Credits Remaining T-shirt, I have a beard, and I do actually respond to Yeehaw.

You're referring to the arcades in Kansas City, Kansas? Zonkers?

That's too bad. I hope there was no incidence with the machine phorest had brought. And yes, I was referring to zonkers. Been going there since they got tricoro last year.

Phorrest stopped bringing games primarily because of the hell he went through getting the games here in 2009. The basic story (IIRC) is that he's based on the Nebraska edge of Iowa, and for 2009 he loaded up his truck with some friends, started driving towards the con, got about three or four hours into the seven hour drive when the truck he was in broke down. He called for roadside assistance, and instead of doing a sane thing and towing him to somewhere to get the truck fixed, they towed him ALL THE WAY BACK TO HIS STARTING POINT then made him swap trucks and start over.

He was quite angry and tired when he showed up. Con staff, myself, and a couple other suppliers unloaded his truck for him so he could go to bed. Nobody could really blame the guy for being in that mood.


Zonkers aside, I actually talk to Jordan quite regularly. Some of the pictures he's used in promotional materials for the place have been ones I've taken.

If I may I'd like to recommend a game series to add to the game room if possible and if it's not already been added: Hatsune Miku Project Diva F and /or F2nd for PS3. Both are available in English. The Japanese version of the games would also work since the PS3 and Sony consoles in general aren't region locked.

Also there's an arcade version of this series called Future Tone. The arcade Round1 has one of these machines in its Chicago location. My friend said he's played it and he's guessing since those machines are on profit lease or whatever the term is, that it'll only be there for a year. What are the chances that one of these machines can come to ACen? I'd be overjoyed. With that said, I'm actually going to Tokyo in March right before ACen pretty much for a few weeks, so I'll be able to play this machine as much as I want while there, but having it at ACen would awesomesauce too.

YeehawMcKickass, yeah that's a load of BS what Phorrest/Jordan had to go through. I hope he sued roadside assistance for what they did to him. That doesn't make any sense at all. They should have towed him to the nearest town's mechanic... not call someone from his home town waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy over there <================= just for him to get his truck repaired. or replaced... whatever it was... I know that's what you basically said, but i'm annoyed along side him ...if that makes sense... I'll stop now. lol

Thanks,
Shiggitay
