Bobby's World (NoVA/DC Arcade)

ilazulilazul Bobby's WorldJoined: Posts: 572
This thread is to share my personal arcade collection with local SRK members. We've been doing these for around a year and so far everything's been great. I collect Neo-Geo, Capcom fighters, Naomi, Cave shooters, and a ton of cabs. It's located near Ballston Mall and Washington-Lee Highschool in Arlington, VA.

Here's some Pics of the room in its current state:

The King of Fighters 2003
Real Bout Fatal Fury 2

Hyper Neo-Geo 64:

Buriki One
Samurai Shodown 64
Samurai Shodown Warrior's Rage

Cave:
ESP Ra. De.
Guwange
Dangun Feveron
ESPGaluda II
Ibara Kuro: Black Label
Muchi Muchi Pork
Puzzle Uo Poko

I only have a few rules:
1. No drugs. We drink, some people smoke, but don't bring anything illegal here. Also, I don't want any underage drinking.
2. The front door must be closed at all times, we have indoor cats and I'd like to keep it that way.
3. No food or drink upstairs in the arcade room. No bottled water, no bag of chips, nothing. Haven't had an incident yet, but you will be asked to leave (especially for using a cabinet as a drink holder).
4. Clean up after yourself, I don't want to find a cat dead from eating your leftover taco bell, and I don't want my house trashed. :arazz:

Anyways, that's it. PM me for address and just watch the thread for when we're doing stuff. :rock:

This is also not the place to go for console gaming. We don't practice SSF4 here, or really play any console stuff. Some people like to try and bring console sticks and games once in a while, and it never gets used. If you're looking for local console gaming (super sf 4, tekken 6) you're probably better off checking out Cyber Grounds or Xanadu Games.

    The last 10 years playing MvC2, I can honestly say I still see things playing marvel now that I've never seen before. crazy - clock

    I'd rather buy 6 copies of MvC2 than buy 1 copy of TvC3!

    I am now playing ____ when _____ comes out I will be leveling up in that game, even if it is crappy because I am a gaymer!

    LOL Super MvC3? The game isn't even a year old and they are already scrapping this game.

    I want Ariel in SMvC3!

    Reporting Live from The Palace:

    Prince Alhid Alazad does not agree. Civilians report that a group of indentured servants, camels, and monkeys have begun their march north to protest such opposition.

    Is this metro accessable?

    I know nobody's said this because you have a gdlk setup and they don't want to piss you off and not get invited, but should this discussion be moved into the MD/VA thread?

    Good shit though on your setup, check your PMs cuz I have a question or two for you.
