hey everybody im lyle, some of you know me, some of you dont. basically, im thinking about opening an arcade. not just another arcade that sucks and closes early and doesnt have the games you want, but an arcade for our scene. an arcade with sitdown cabs, and h2h’s, and NO RULES. smoke inside, get drunk, yell, finger fuck girls while doing wakeup shoryuu’s. those of you that know me, know i dont give a fuck. life is all about having fun.
ok so basically, i make really good money, and i have access to investors who would finance whatever i want. it’s entirely within the realm of possibility, the only thing i need to find out is, will people come? right now, its just a shot in the dark, but i would love to have the community’s feedback be positive so i can start really planning something.
the plan as it stands now:
-at least 5 sitdown cabs of 3s, marvel, and cvs2. kofxi, t5:dr, and whatever else we would want. one h2h of each for tourney play. i would like to have more fighters than anything else, afterall, this arcade is for us, planned by us.
-weeklies with different formats, and monthlies with the house contributing to a sizeable pot.
-the other staple shit games that everyone needs to make some money (lightgun games, initial d, fucking ddr and shit)
-RAMEN HOUSE IN THE ARCADE! fuck pizza and nachos, my mgl bloods know whats up.
-possible internet lounge area
-open till whenever.
-free play once the kiddies go home for the night, stay till whenever.
basically, thats all i can possibly think of right now. the most important thing obviously would be location. i’ve been thinking the east bay is good cuz people from sac and 408 can come an equal distance. but this eliminates the option of people coming everyday, cuz lets face it, youre not gonna drive 30 minutes each way to play games everyday, and bart is a slow bitch.
i need to hear from you guys where you think it should be, and any other suggestions you may have equipment wise, ambience wise, name-wise, whatever-wise.
also, if you flame me for this, youre only hurting yourself cuz im as serious as i can be at this point.
thanks in advance
