The time has come to finally put up a new thread. The arcade known as "SUPER ARCADE" has been invaded and taken under new control. The new owner is none other than Ralph aka owner of FFA in granada hills, aka owner of Japan Arcade in Little Toyko, aka someone who knows and deeply cares about the arcade scene and its patrons. I have been fortunate enough to be designated as leader of the crusade to bring this establishment along with the so cal scene back to greatness. Brief history on the joint :

The Legend, Tomo Ohira first honed his skills is this arcade many many years ago. That being said this place is essentially the start of greatness and core of SF2 and its wonderful history. As years have gone by many players and owners have come and go but now is the time to bring back the glory days of this landmark. Now with players like Mike Ross, Clockwork, and washed a up old timers like myself, i have the utmost confidence that we can maintain this greatness and hope to bring along more legends yet to be noticed!

Super Arcade has many plans in the process and I will be keeping everyone informed and hopefully people will stay tuned to the changes and progress we are making here. I can proudly say that after 1 week I noticed much more traffic here and want to thank everyone for their support and patronage. Without the players the arcade and the games would be nothing, and without the players there would be no purpose in driving to become the hot spot in so cal! Our goal here at Super is to provide not only a Dojo for the serious gamer but a great experience and arcade environment for the players to relish in. I am personally motivated to help the scene and the community grow towards its bright future and hope you guys will hop on board for the ride.

Once again, thanks to all who have helped so far and hope to see many more new faces in up and coming months.

    Just found out about you taking over SA. I miss you Watts! I'll be there!
    Streetfighter skills are almost wholly divorced from physical gifts or liabilities (ask "the one-handed terror"). High-level SF is a real skill that must be learned and developed

    It's mostly fighting games, but there were some music games and racing games there. Not sure if the new owners will keep all of those though.

    just got home..... was supposed to close at midnight but due to the amount of fun that was being had beyond control the doors refused to close till 1:30am :) just a fyi, i do not get paid to stay after hours and i am supposed to be there at 10:00am tomorrow to open shop lol........ lets hope that alarm clock still works! anyways, just wanna thank all those that came out to support this place. lots of old and new faces showed up tonight and i really must admit, it truly did feel of that good ol arcade feeling from back in the day. everyone was very well mannered, yes, even luka and sanchez :P and it seemed like everyone was having a great time included mike ross who was losing in "perfect" fashion as least once per game...... thanks again to valle for making the trip and much love and props to all the players tonight. hope to see you all again soon and Good Night!

    p.s. 3rd strike fans should come on mondays and thursdays cause pyrolee, aka usa's #1 3s player, will be frequenting Super on those days.

    Also, Hung, I'm pretty sure those red parries were lucky. Considering you fucked up one out of five. We'll make sure next time.

    You weren't kidding. There was good comp on every machine around 3:30 when I came for MvC2, 3s, AE, and tekken.

    Good to see Calvin and Blockable Laser for MvC2. Looks like Ace, Potter, Khaos, and Reset will start coming too?

    I forgot how fun 3s is. Nothing better than arcade H2H 3s on working japanese buttons/sticks.

    The IIDX Red machine is still there, sadly it's moving to FFA. I think that machine would get A LOT LOT more attention if it had a new monitor, nobody bothered to play it because it was too narrow to read and its meant for wide screen. That's the last of the good IIDX machines in Socal and most of the best players in Socal played at AI consistently. R.I.P IIDX.

    Overall good shit Watson for taking care of the arcade.
