The one major gripe I have about FunSpot is while their collection of classic games is unmatched by ANY arcade I have ever been to in my life, they do not really have any newer games. But there are a couple of other arcades in the area that have newer games, but since I went in the dead of January none of them were open.
If it's fighting games your into the best bets on the east cost are China Town Fair in New York City and 8 on the Break in Dunellen New Jersey.
CTF has two Tekken 5 DR machines running non-stop with tons of players and they also have a great collection of Capcom and SNK fighters. They also got Arcania Heart in a few weeks ago and I want to try that out.
8 on the Break has a huge tournament, ECC (East Cost Championships) every Memorial Day, but I'm not sure if they include their ONE Tekken 5 DR machine into the mix. If your a Capcom fighting fan, that is the place to be when they hold the ECC. It gets so crowded you can't even walk because so many people are crowded around the machines for the matches.
Oh. My. Word!!!!!!!
China Town Fair!! I was there in Sept and Oct 2000, when they had Tekken Tag Tournament in there.
I learnt alot from several of the players I met while I was there, and yes - they have a fantastic assortment of classic games.
When I was there gettin my ass handed to me on a plate, the other really big game was Marvel Vs Capcom which was just opposite on the corner.
I love China Town Fair! Do you go in there alot?
I may be down there this year in Aug for a while, be a laugh to hook up and spa. Thats if you can play fighting games
Yeah, when I was there that had lots of the King of fighters. Think the only one missing at the time was KoF 96. No big loss
I can imagine T5 DR gets alot of action, but truth be told , the whole Tekken series lost something after Tekken Tag. Did Tekken 4 do much business? Nobody would play it in London or Manchester after the first couple of weeks - hope Tekken 6 isn't the same, in fact - I hope it's different to T5 so I may be able to enjoy it a bit more.
