Hey hey, haven’t posted here since Evo’05 seeing how I live in a little slice of heaven called Humboldt County where the only arcade functions primarily as a haven for a handful of kids-with-mothers, and a few DDRers. Hard for me to find much to say or contribute when everyone I know doesnt play, and those Ive met live hundreds of miles away.
But thats about to change come June. Finally got my shit together and found a few friends willing to relocate and room with me in the bay area to make that rent and day to day living just a little easier. Needless to say, Ive been out of the loop for quite a while. What Id like to know is what arcades are populated in my soon-to-be new region. Last I heard, the Bearcade shut down, and the only two arcades I remember from my various road trips are the SVGL and the MGL. Has anything else sprung up within an hour or so of east bay that should be brought to my attention?
All in all, I have a lot of lost time to make up for. Making this move is something I have put off for far too long, so any news, any advice, anything to make my transition to being a gamer in the bay area easier, feel free to enlighten me.
