DJMAX series is dead.
All DJMAX arcade online system was taken offline earlier this year.
DJMax Trilogy’s server was closed too.
No DLC release for DJMAX TECHNIKA TUNE (PS Vita)
No more update for DJMAX RAY.
The only active DJMax project is DJMAX Technika Q, which is a mobile release.

This is actually quite sad as I love DJMax Technika arcade, they are never too big in Malaysia, maybe they are in Korea and Japan, but my trip to Japan last month, there are no DJMax Technika machine to be seen, all I saw was BEMANI’s arcade, and SEGA’s Maimai and other music game machines. Malaysia’s DJMax Technika was never online, never got to unlock songs, no way to gain access to the progression system, therefore no one was actively playing it.

Halfpipe Tokyo @ SEGA Tokyo Joypolis (Part 2)

I’ve briefly introduce you to SEGA Tokyo Joypolis, the awesome three floor indoor amusement park at Odaiba, in my last blog post. But I’ve yet to introduce you to my favourite ride, which is Halfpipe Tokyo.

So what is Halfpipe Tokyo?

Halfpipe Tokyo is the highlight ride at SEGA Tokyo Joypolis, which is the successor of Halfpipe Canyon, which is now located at Sega Republic, Dubai.
Each ride cost you 800 yen, and its totally worth getting a passport for unlimited ride.
It is a snowboard halfpipe simulator where you step on your paddle to the swing pattern to get high score. You will need to change your step at the lowest point of the halfpipe swing to get high score. The better you did, the more spins you get. Trust me, you would be thrilled and begging for more!
The gameplay mechanic described above sounds simple enough, but it is hard to master. It has a score system which will score your performance against other 3 groups of players.
This game have awesome original soundtrack too.

The whole setup is just so gorgeous. Shiny lights, giant screens, awesome songs. A MUST RIDE if you visit SEGA Tokyo Joypolis.

SEGA Tokyo Joypolis Part 1


During my one day trip at Odaiba/Daiba, I spent my evening at SEGA Tokyo Joypolis, which is the most fun I’ve had in an amusement park for a good while.
Before I go in I was wondering if paying for the Night Passport is a good idea. The admission fee itself is ¥800, if you did not get a passport it will cost separately per ride. Each ride range from ¥500 to ¥800. Finally I pay for the Night Passport for ¥2,900. Night/day passport does not include credit for arcade game, only unlimited rides for the attractions.

The park was not busy that night, therefore most rides have no wait time. I dont have pictures of all rides, you can get information from their website. But below are my personal highlight.
