    Shatter Proof, are you not having a Marvel V Capcom 2 Machine?

    And I hear a few of the arcades in Texas are going strictly console. What do you think about this?

    I will eventually get a MVC2. I've got to many machines right now. If I can sell a few more off I'll be able to get one. If you guys know anyone that might want any of those games, feel free to pass my e-mail along.

    Consoles are ok, but nothing beats the real deal, no matter how good the port is..

    I've got a Street Fighter III 3rd Strike and Police trainer out there, both set at 25c a play.

    I'm working on my chaos machine and should have it somewhere in Lubbock the near future!

    WHAT!! Dude where were you when I used to live there? I can't believe levelland has a 3S cabinet there. I haven't been there in bout 2 years. So whats Lan Freaks and where is it close by; Gatti's or something?

    It's farther down then gatti's, more towards the school. It's on the east side of College avenue in a strip mall with a Cleaners on one end. There is a nail shop right next door to it.

    It's a neat place, the owner is a really cool guy who is all about pc-games. I'm trying to get him into Arcade stuff so if the quarters drop I think I can change his mind and I can put more games in there. We were wanting to put my Cruis'n USA sit down out there this weekend if time permits.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    Is 3S the only arcade there at this time? My freind and I want to go over there this weekend but if 3S is the only machine, then we'll just stay here since we have one at tilt.

    There is also a Police Trainer and Cruis'n USA sit down. All 3 games are set at 25c a play. I hope to put another good fighter in there in a few months.

    The best game is X-Men Vs Street Fighter, the SuperChase, NBA Jam, Golden Tee, and Lethal Enforcers II are mine as well. All of those are at 25c a game.

    I'm considering putting SVC Chaos in there soon.

    I wouldn't put SVC Chaos in there.....3rd strike or KOF 2002 would be good....

    My 3rd Strike is out at Lanfreax in Levelland. The Chaos machine is done. The next machine I'll put together I think will be KOF 2002, and I'll have to figure out where to place it..


    I'm glad you liked the place!

  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    Ok, I pulled the NBA Jam out of there and put in SVC Chaos last night. It's set at 25c per play.
  • Dark Man XDark Man X Axe Murderer Silva.. Joined: Posts: 540

  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    I really wanted to leave the Jam in there, but no one was playing it!
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    Any thoughts, suggestions, or improvement for Round 1?

    besides the obvious of getting newer games, nothing major. More space, if possible....

    Hey Fabi, it's Jaime. I'm going to Lubbock this weekend to see my cousing grad. from Texas Tech. I went last time I said i would, but unfortunantly i couldn't spend any time in the arcade. Since this is a pleasure trip, and not business, i'll have some free time. But anyway, I hope there is some good comp over there, and i'll post more to set something up once i'm in town.

    No matter what, keep the 4 player Spiderman game there!! I love that game. Keep shinobi, metal slug, XSF. The place just needs to get bigger to add more games. But I always say add another fighting game in there but thats mostly all I play. If you have some old classic games like the 6 player X-men, Willow, Fighting Street and Superman (I'm a Supes fan) please bring them in.

    Well I'm not Fabi, but did you come and play? My friend said that someone came down from Austin around graduation time and played with ken. He said that you were good, but he is actually a beginner trying to learn 3S.

    Yeah, I stopped by the mall unexpectedly to play for a sec. I was there for a cousin graduating from Tech. I was gonna post but the person's house i was stying at didn't have a computer b/c they just got rid of it. So I had no access to my PM's or the board. But I'm gonna be back in town the weekend after Next for a cousins HS graduation, i'll keep ya'll informed. I could tell he was new so i was sandbaggin pretty bad.(not saying it to be a jerk, just sayin:) )

    Go out to Levelland to LanFreaks and ask the employees to play you. I think the guys name is Corey. He's gotten pretty good at the game.

    I'm going to put an old Super Mario Brothers game out in LanFreaks later on this week. You guys might want to go check it out.

    New Arcade in the Lubbock Area.

    Go out to Wolforth on Main street. It's called Main street Arcade, opens about every day at 3pm, it's open until around 9pm on weekdays and later on the weekend. It's got a few fighters out there, and I plan on putting a few more out there in the next few weeks.

    Go check it out and please offer suggestions/recommendations.


    Thanks.

    It's 866-0505.

    Right Now I've got the following games out there

    Cruis'n USA sit down
    X-Men Vs Street Fighter
    Lethal Enforcers 2
    4 Player X-Men (Remember this one?)
    SVC Chaos


    They've also got pool tables out there.

    If the fighters do well out there I plan on putting a few more in there in the comming months. I need to place another game out there in the next few months. I'd like to put another fighter out there myself.

    Well I went Friday with a couple of friends and it was pretty nice. Of course I think there should be more games. We just played X-men until we beat it and my other friend played chaos and XVSF too. The snack bar was nice and the pool tables and jukebox. The parking was just i dunno, would be nicer if there was actual a parking space besides parking in front of the place. Other than that the place didn't look too bad and the arcade was dark but I had no complaints.

    There will be more games out there soon! I've got to get some better numbers on the games I've got out there right now before I make any changes/additions.

    There are plans to change the parking up a bit. I also agree that the parking situation can be messy out there. I hope they finish it up in the next month or two. They also plan on adding batting cages and paintball off to the other side.

    I'm glad you made it out there. check back out there from time to time, I hope to put a few other games (possibly a foosball table or something) out there in the comming months.

    Hey I read on here that there was some people looking for some SF comp on Texas Tech in SF, I play SF2 Turbo, Cvs2, 3s and the Alpha series. I am kinda rusty because I havent had anyone to play against in a while....so hit me up if you are on campus or you want to meet at an arcade and play. Oh and I built my own arcade stick... REPRESENT!!!
