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.

Flex those muscles, Machamp

This is vaguely the same footage of Pokkén Tournament we've seen over the past couple weeks, but it's a direct capture of the game, so what the hell. Good recap of the current roster, though do note that the voice over and text are in Japanese. Long way to go before this'll get localized. What's going on with Pikachu (starting at 1:25)? That expression is Kirby-in-the-USA angry.more
