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.

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!
