I work in a Namco owned arcade in southern ohio/ky area. And today I got wind that there has been named to be a Nation Wide Ver. 3 Tourney this summer.

Just thought everyone would like to know. So if you dont know where a Namco arcade is in your are, you better be finding one soon...

I really thought that the word "OHIO" would have tipped you off more. Oh, and NAMCO is that nice company that makes top of the line fighting games and owns a bunch of companies and what not. Not sure about it... but I don't think that YOUR arcades are actually owned by a company that actually MAKES videogames.

Well i heard about this tourney but someone told me it is gonna be a tag-team tourney and you and a partner race others and split the money at the end if you win. That's just what I heard, anyway my arcade needs to dump Ver.2 and get Ver.3 so I can get to working on my skills happy.gif

Went to work today, talked to myboss. Did not find out to much, because he hasn't had a chance to talk to the DM or GM about it much. All he could tell me is that every Namco arcade is supposed to get upgraded to Ver.3 ( no matter what version they have, this makes me very happy considering we have Ver. 2 here).

And that it should be taking place mid-way during the summer. He couldnt tell me any rules or setup to the tournement. But he said that as soon as he finds out anything he would tell me so I will keep you guys informed as soon as I find out even the smallest bit of info.

there is no way he could know that, because all info relating to other stores and their machines are kept private to the GM's and the managers of their arcades. He has no idea as to when the first nor last or any inbetween will arive. But... By the info I have so far that the tourney will happen mid summer. Expect the last of the machines to arive sometime in the first month of summer or very early the second.

Thats all me and him have to go by on timing the arival of the Ver. 3's

Well man if you are not in a Namco owned arcade im sorry you are S.O.L. because from what I understand its only going to take place in Namco arcades and that all Namco arcades with Ver.1 or Ver.2 are getting upgraded to Ver.3.

Thats all I know about that subject matter.

I am really hoping that I can convince Matt (or DM) to leave the V2 machine there and have the V3 machine too. Just like I am trying to get in another friggin DDR machine.

Ha werid, my DM is named Matt also... FrEaKy...

ANYWAYS, we just got DDR Extreme and IDAS V.2 at the same time, only been playing IDAS for about 2 months. But... It has become an addiction esspecially since i work there... and I have the keys to the machine, the service button is a dandy thing. I ussually just ring up 20 dollars worth of credits at a time whistling.gif and just sit there forever and play.

Hey whats better than IDAS.... FREE IDAS grin2.gif

But I can only do that when my manger or assistant manger is not there.... which is rare so ussually i have to pay.
