View Full Version : Arcade Machines at CNA04?

I've been asking around and I've heard that CNA had a few games last year, like Initial D. As most of you may know, Anime North 2004 had a Dance Dance Revolution Extreme machine (which was in a horrible condition) and it did pretty well. Being around 50 - 70 on the waiting list, just to play one 3 - 5 minute game :bigtu:
I'd like to know if anyone has any 'confirmed' information on what kind of games they'll have, specifically DDR or... Bemani in general :thumbsup:
I already know of a local machine in the downtown area, of course. I'm just curious to see if CN will get one.

Best bet is to email them yourself... I emailed them for the past years about getting aracade machines and finally they got them (although I highly doubt my emails had anything to do with them).

Give it a try!

Even if there are no arcade machines at CN04 there is an arcade in the bottom floor of the Via train section of Union Station. It's connected to the convention center by the sky walk and really easy and quick to get to.

The arcade on Yonge St. is just above Dundas(and above the small sidestreet as well)

the arcade is in the dealers room which means that one at CNA closes when the dealers room does, but the one on bloor and young is open till midnight i think but personally i dont want to be out in downtown TO that late at night, especially in attention grabbing costumes

Does funland still have DDR 5th Mix? Because any chance to play B4U~glorious style~ is worth a walk.

I think going before the con would be great! of course (I'm not sure of everyone plans of when they're leaving on Sunday) but We could try going on Sunday sometime?

It's usually the slowest day of the con other than haggling down your fav item in the dealer's room =3 LOL!

I know later in the day, friday, for me is no good ^^; That's our dinner day *bounces* and I'm the Guide so I wouldn't make it ^^;;;

Nyams, if the four of us are crashing together, why don't we hit it on our way to your house on Friday night?

So thats where you all went? I thought it was the food court!

If I only knew, I would have horridly embarressed myself and brought tears to all those who would be watching.

Negative.
I was there two weeks ago.
They replaced PPP with like, six Initial D machines (version 2 i THINK).
And in DDRs they have 4th Mix Plus and DDR Extreme.
That is all!
I go there because people are hardly on it (when i've been there) and the owner's are awesome.

Nuts... 5th mix is my favourite and they have to do this to me.

Nothing I would really recommend going there for XD
They had Dance Maniax AGES ago. when they got rid of it i stopped looking in to see what they had.

JustinCredible~
Yeah I don't doubt it was gone ages ago! i only go during the summer. So, all i know is that last summer it was there and now it's not *L* But yeah, sorry~ I'm glad they have 4th Mix plus though, those seem to disappear, and i really got attached to the old songs i learned DDR on ^^

The only 5th Mix I think left is At Hurontario & Dundas... :waaaah: I wouldn't complain so much if any other mix had the songs I love... I'll still probably go anyways...

There's only one thing that worries me about that time. Can anyone recommend a good time to start lining up for tickets? :eeek:

With the recent pre-reg use in the last year, the lines moved pretty swifty for both.

BUT.

If the door opens @ 4, I know some will line up @ 2, just to avoid the huge dealers Room Line.

It opens up a bit before the con.. and the con doesn't usually let people upstairs on time either....

Its a shame that only a small portion showed up at Funland last Friday, but it was fun good nonetheless ^^
As for gaming at CNA this year, it stunk. XBox panel with overrated and old shooters? Psssh.... give me a break. I'd like to thank whoever brought in their laptop with Stepmania and DDR softpad. Since I kind of forgot your name =/ You were my god from about 3 - 4ish! As someone said, we must do this again with metal pads or something :dance:
