    In there like pedobear.

    Any plans on getting Continuum Shift 2? I know there's issues with the NESICA system but there's big BB NorCal community that would love to feed quarters into a cab.

    10000% agreed on this. Its centralized amongst most of the community, it would be a great place to meet up and not have people be driving ungodly hours to meet up.

    I am a bit far from SF but this is cool, including the pricing. Having vampire savior makes this pretty much the 2nd best arcade possible, with first place only awarded if you pick up Jojo's Bizarre Adventure someday.

    i've actually walked by that exact area, looked at a for lease sign in one of the buildings, and thought it might be the type of shady place that would be perfect for an arcade

    see yall thursday!

    Unless he has magic powers and extremely deep pockets like Planet Zero John, CS2 is probably impossible. :sad:

    Unfortunately, I have a feeling that CS1 machine is going to be very lonely in a few weeks. D:

    Might be interested in showing up to check this place out this weekend.

    Hyper Fighting? Holy shit. Windjammers and Vampire Savior? What the hell? That's awesome.

    Considering adding an ST cab?

    This place looks really, really great.

    So, is the arcade style like quarters to play or like Starbase style with entry fee and then play?

    Given this photo from their twitter feed: change is here on Twitpic I'm gonna guess quarters or tokens.

    Just get off Powell station and you will see Stockton.

    I wonder too. Also with AE arriving, it seems more beneficial to wait for its DLC.

    Hey, everyone! Our apologies for not getting back to all of you in a timely fashion; we've all been really busy on our off-days working on all sorts of exciting things! We're super excited to see everyone's enthusiasm, and we'll try our best to address everyone's questions below!

    @DopeUyuu Unfortunately, no, this is not the Final Edition; Final Edition is only available in Japan through the NESiCA Download Service. The "HERO" version is, however, the most recent version that can be obtained outside of Japan.

    @tastylumpia ...and everyone else that asked about CS2! Unfortunately, it seems that Planet Zero has a special arrangement with Arc System Works; as such, we are unable to obtain a copy of the game for ourselves. If anyone happens to have a contact at Arc System Works, or maybe even Aksys, that is willing to help us out, we're more than happy to see where it goes!

    However, we are considering setting up a timer-based CS2 setup. Stay tuned to our Twitter account for more details on that!

    @The_Eddie ...and everyone else that asked about Tekken 6! At this time, we've decided to focus on securing a copy of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 upon release, but if we receive enough demand from our Guests (Tweet at us or shoot us an e-mail!), we may reconsider this!

    @NegroNinja The space is around one-thousand square feet. Not the biggest space, but we think it will do until we get enough of a following to support us moving into a larger space! And, yes, Art [not Sabin!] is involved; you should see him around from time to time!

    @koogy If you ever find yourself in San Francisco, we'd love to see you! Bring us some shirts so we can sell them for you!

    @Tactixdtoid Don't forget to say hello when you guys stop by!

    @sasavn01 Speed on VSav is currently set to User Select, but we can force it to Turbo 3 if we receive enough requests!

    @neiman Unfortunately, 3S is not a head-to-head setup. Sorry!

    @CrispyTacoz All of our cabinets run on quarters, and all games are twenty-five cents, with the exception of The King of Fighters XII, which will cost fifty-cents!

    @fateXd2 Unfortunately, yes, MVC3 will likely be on a timer-based setup, similar to the setup that the Metreon had for SSF4. We understand that this is not ideal, but without a proper arcade release, it'll have to do!

    And, to everyone who asked about SSF4AE: It's coming, sooner than you think! (Not this weekend, sadly! But very soon!)

    Lastly, since there have been some questions regarding accessibility, I'll try and give you all a basic run-down of various ways to get to us:

    1) You can take BART to Montgomery Street Station, and then catch the 30 Stockton to Stockton & Sutter, which will leave you directly across the street from us!
    2) You can also take BART to Powell Street Station, then exit the station via the Stockton Street exit; we're about four blocks North, on Stockton!
    3) You can take any MUNI bus that will get you near Market & Stockton; get off the bus and head North on Stockton! We're four blocks up!
    4) By car, there are two spots right in front of us that tend to be unoccupied after 6pm (and are free!); after 6pm, we highly recommend parking in the parking garage structure located directly across the street from us! You can find more details here: Parking on Union Square - Parking Rates :: Union Square Shopping, Dining & Travel Guide for San Francisco (Use "Find" and enter "Sutter Stockton Garage")

    Thanks again for all the comments, suggestions and general feedback! We're really excited, and please don't hesitate to say hello and introduce yourself!

    PMed Aksys on dustloop forums about CS2.

    With AE, XIII on the way and possibly TTT2 in the future as well the classic games you already have, this could be a hot spot for the fighting game community in NorCal. Excited to see what happens.

    @southtownarcade How do you feel about hosting tournaments/streaming sessions?
