(arcade review ... game reviews coming "soon")
Yeah, the closest one to me actually has a good and recent selection and the machines are in nice shape, but (1) it's expensive and (2) volume is set way too high on each machine.I love my Round 1, but I just wish they got new machines more often. Outside of Ticket Machines (which are regularly new), the newest Japanese machine they have is the new Dancerush Stardom (2 of those), while still haivng the "New" tags on Crossbeats Rev (which is now a discontinued game), and they got Halo Fireteam Raven instead of House of the Dead Scarlet Dawn.
My only other complaint is that the place is EXPENSIVE- Claw machines cost the equivelent of over $2 per play, and the cheapest/oldest machines cost more than $1 to play
Yeah, they maintain the condition of the Fighting and Music games really well (that said- the Castlevania arcade machine has been broken all but one time in the 3 years i've been visiting my local R1), and while we do have a good selection- 3 different Sound Voltex, Project Diva, 2 different Beatmanias, 3 different Pump machines- I just wish they had something new more often, or hell, they just got a damn Jubeat machine in!
No not at all, arcades are pretty much just as dead here. The only places you'll find them is in big cities or at "chain" places like Dave and Busters which is a restaurant/arcade (they aren't in many states).
Yeah, I'm getting the idea that it's a running joke that he'll eventually start playing actual games.
