So I went to Fukuoka to go to Monkey House, a famous Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike arcade.
I believe I fought Deshiken there, a top Ken player. At first, they thought I was just being lucky with my wins, but then they said I was strong and wanted more challenge. Imagine like 20 people on the other side of the arcade chanting to their "hero" there, and you just playing alone on that side? But after that, they were treating me cool.
The place was nice and grimey, just how I like it. New York style, baby.
Will definitely go once a month.
