just a reminder, my site has a practical guide to blackpool, let me know if you need it.

also saturday is a home match for blackpool fc, kick off is 12:30. if they lose they are almost certainly relegated, their opponents, wigan are top of the league.

there will be a lot of unhappy home fans

Just noticed that myself, I'm incredibly disappointed about that :(

Overall it's a great set of games although I'm very surprised to see no Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat game listed... It will be great though to play the original Time Crisis again, i've not played it in years, I wonder if I can still one credit it... 8)

There's a Midnight Resistance cab at the arcade in Bury, with the proper twisty sticks.

Might be worth asking the guy who runs Arcade Club as i presume theyll be supplying the cabs. Saying that he has an account here....

Presume he can only take x amount due to the room but worth asking

Shame there never seems to be a Dragons Lair cab - that machine is (and always has been) a real crowd-puller, especially when an expert is playing. I guess due to the unreliability of the laserdisk that it's an awkward one to have.
