    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!

    Ok, I pulled the NBA Jam out of there and put in SVC Chaos last night. It's set at 25c per play.

    I really wanted to leave the Jam in there, but no one was playing it!

    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.

    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.

    I've been looking into a tekken 5, but I don't think it will pay for itself. I'll check in the spring if I can find any on the used market I might pick one up.


    I do have a cocktail table, the Phoenix is in a cocktail cabinet. Let me know if you want to come check it out sometime.
  • DarkZeroDarkZero is playing VF5!!! Joined: Posts: 1,262
    Well, I have at least heard from about 10 different people that want to play Tekken 5. But theres other people that go to high school and they want to play Tekken 5(~50 people or so). So far if you get a Tekken 5 machine I believe you'll be the only one to have it cuz Caboose might or might not get Tekken 5. I dunno, all I'm saying is theres a pretty big demand from the locals here and they want it and I want to pick up the game too. As far as the cocktail table goes, is there any way to change out the game or if you have another cocktail cabinet?

    In case anyone is interested. I've got a fully working Street Fighter III 3rd Strike game board for sale at the moment. Feel free to contact me regarding this.
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    it looks like I'll be putting KOF 2002 and Samurai Showdown III out at Lanfreax this week. I think I'm going to swap SSIII out with some other old skewl Neo Geo game every time I go out there. I've got some Fatal Fury Versions, World Heroes versions, Art of fighting, and Samurai Showdowns, and some others. The Marquee on the cabinet will say King of Fighters 2002, but it's actually got a dual slot board in the cabinet, I doubt I'll put on there what the second game is, so go check it out and let me know what you think!

    We'll see.. Just make a treck out to Levelland, PLay 3rd strike, KOF 2002, Samurai Showdown (can't remember which version I put there), Pac Man, and the MSH if I put it out there..

    None of these games are for sale right now, but for the right price any of them could be.
