So Tomodachi, the store that I remember being super tiny store that sold Sanrio stuff and Gundam models in Rosedale Mall (in Roseville, MN, which is a northern suburb of St. Paul and the second largest mall in the state) apparently has a PIU Fiesta machine right now? And a Sirius machine is currently being shipped to them and will arrive next week? I have no idea where this came from and will have to investigate tomorrow but this is completely ridiculous and if it's true, the world's going to end.

Also we have a Taiko 13 (I think?) machine at MoA and that's really fun.

So yeah, there's zero possibility of this but if there's some weekend where people want to meet up once I figure out how the hell this happened, I would not be opposed to it.



Also, people need to understand that Minnesota getting a IIDX machine has been an inside joke amongst the bemani players here for like....9 years now so the idea that a machine might actually exist at this close of a proximity is just....what.

i might consider going out depending on the machine's condition

Hell yeah.

Although honestly at least the guy's trying to get people into the store. As I remember he's pretty nice and randomly gives deals like buy one get one free on a whole lot of stuff.

I'll be checking (you) out the place today to see how it looks and find out about the IIDX machine.

Oh man TATSUNOKO. There's a tournament for that like 5 blocks from where I'm going to be next weekend, and the grand prize is $15 or something. Yeaaaaaaaaah!

Any news on this IIDX machine, Eggman?

It is entirely possible that it's only for his Halloween event next weekend. I am unsure. It is confirmed to be real and a Sirius machine though.

The PIU Fiesta machine was the same way. He just rented it to have a tournament in his store, which is really really weird. I can't find out where the Fiesta machine came from though.


Looks like they're setting up the Sirius machine on Friday and then it'll be here for a few months before going back to....wherever it came from.

I hope this is legit and sticking around for more than a weekend... I even got dragged into that store once while waiting for a table at Granite City since it's near where a buddy of mine used to live. I'll be up in the Twin Cities for Thanksgiving and I'll be stopping by if I don't hear word that it's gone.

I'll be checking it out in about an hour. Trick went there yesterday and I guess it's nice so I'll report back on the specifics of it and take a picture or two probably.

Turns out it's Family Fun Center's old machine and has been nicely overhauled with a Panasonic plasma monitor. Timing took some getting used to but I was getting upper AA's on some 8's and 9's again (considering I haven't played much in the last two years that's pretty good). It'll be there for at least a couple of weeks so if you're in the neighborhood, stop on by. No sticky keys or anything. The owner of the machine will be switching it out for a few other machines every now and then, using his existing PIU Fiesta machine, hopefully the KBM 3rd machine from one of my friends, and hopefully a Pop'n machine at some point.

Sound is extremely loud and awesome.

Yeah that's Ross/Eternal. He's starting to provide his growing collection of arcade machines to local anime/gaming/whatever cons as much as he can.

Also I think the Taiko is gone from MoA now. Somebody, I think Travis/Brandon was mad cause he showed up with his own sticks and the machine was missing. Probably need a confirmation on this.

Anyhoo, the plan is for the IIDX machine to remain in Tomodachi for the holiday season, excepting if/when it gets hauled away to go to conventions. (Other than potentially machine swapping, which i hadn't heard about, having hung out with Ross and talking business on about a weekly basis) Currently the Fiesta is in a private home, I dunno what the plan is for getting that out and available.

Also, I'm pretty sure the plan is for the Sirius cabinet to be on perma doubles premium, though I'm not sure that's happened yet.


If anybody wants more information about whats going on with this, I'll definitely find out, and relay it if that's cool with Ross.

For anyone wondering that Sirius cabinet is still in place at Rosedale Mall. I have no idea when it's leaving at this point. I also didn't have any cash on me, nor could I find an ATM at the mall so I couldn't get any quarters to play it. Sadness.

I sure check this often. I'll go see if it's there on Saturday. I haven't played it in quite a while though. The guy has no easy way of getting quarters to actually play it so you have to go a bank and get a roll of quarters first or something and I don't really want to do that.
