Friggin' Japan and its awesome Taito Station arcades!


8:00 AM on 12.11.2011



Nerdcore artist Random is currently touring Japan and taking the time to enjoy the sights and sounds in between gigs. Naturally, he had to check out a Taito Station and share the experience with his fans.

This is pure guerrilla filming, as photography is not allowed in the building. Using a Flip camera, he gives us just a little peek at a couple of the arcade's five floors. There are, of course, the rows upon rows of Bemani machines, but there are also a couple of surprises such as a glimpse of Sonic Blast Heroes, the sequel to the classic punching game Sonic Blast Man. But you will totally sh*t bricks when you see the Dariusburst cabinet. Hooooo-leeeee crap.

As with the video of Super Potato from a few days back, we only get a little taste of the glory before the video ends. I think I'm going to harass Dale constantly until he's forced to take me with him the next time he hits up Japan.
