LACC's Family Arcade: I played a homeless dude who mained Sagat


#1

Yep, anyone who’s ever been here wouldn’t be surprised.

The positives: Family Arcade has a great setup (Korean cabs, the same as Video 94 I think), the joysticks and buttons are in good condition, and best of all, it’s near the Hollywood/Downtown area.

Family Arcade
876 N Vermont Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90189

The negatives: Local competition, at least the times I’ve been there, is pretty lackluster. Also, at 75 cents a game, it’s way expensive. And last but not least, sometimes there is this homeless dude who plays Sagat who smells quite a lot and makes me want to find a way to boil the joystick and buttons after he plays.

So, me and one other SRK user will be there tomorrow, Wed, from 5-7. Maybe we can get some semi-regular meet-ups until a console-centric RTSD type thing can be set-up. Anyone who wants to come is welcome!

For some of us, the gas money spent getting to AI or Denjin especially probably balances out the $.75 sf4 play. Competition will be lackluster sure but hey, chances are you aren’t as good as you think you are:yawn: God knows I’m not.


#3

that homeless guy spends all the money that people give him and spend it on sf4. he says that its better than being drunk and loaded…


#4

He’s got his priorities straight. And hey, if a homeless guy can afford to play here, then why not anyone else, right?


#5

What are their hours of business?


#6

I think they’re open til very late at night, maybe 24hrs?


#7

monday thru sunday 9am till 2am

i still wont go here. no challenge there


#8

You suck though…


#9

yes i do…:lovin:


#10

So I’ll be there tomorrow 5ish. Look for a skinny Asian guy with a big head playing Dhalsim!


#11

75 cents a game is :lame: i went there once and couldnt believe it.


#12

was the mvc2 damage ratios ever fixed?


#13

CRAP. I won’t be able to make it tonight. DAMN FAMILY EMERGENCY (no pun intended). I guess maybe we’ll try another time…Sorry.


#14

I can still go but only if someone else plans on going. If no responses then ill pass. Post and let me know.


#15

:rofl: Remember that one crazy nerd that shouted out all the Super names?

ARTIC ATTACK, stirke a pose.


#16

killing an akuma player with one doom launch into photon array combo is top tier :wasted:


#17

They need a new Tekken in here or something.

At least the arcade on 7th & Broadway has TTT AND comp for it. And DR.

I suck at Capcom and pinballs (the latter not always the case damn I’m rusty).


#18

lols yea that dude

i think he’s the same guy yelling on the cvs2 machine when i was there.


#19

All you need are some disinfectant wipes!
