Retro gaming in Tokyo

Post by Gryzor » Sat Mar 18, 2006 2:28 pm

Hello everyone!

Tomorrow I'm leaving for Tokyo (yay!). While I'll be there with my gf, I guess I'll persuade her for a walk in the electronics shops... only problem is, my older issues of RG, with the series about retrogaming in Tokyo, is inaccessible to me right now... what a bummer. So I'd like to ask any of you if you remember/can suggest any places to go?

Thanks so much!

I went to Tokyo in August and there were some great game bars there, I had a go on a virtual boy and held a 64DD in my excited little hands. The police are shutting quite a few of them down tho, for using modern consoles in the bars. Apparently people buying drinks and playing current and last-gen goes against a piracy law they have about the machines not being licensed for use in that way.

I'm off there again in a few weeks. :) Will be checking out Mikado again in Takadanobaba district. Must remember to post a review of that place this time. Also again checking out Akihabara and the multitude of Sega's and Taito House. Game on! :D
