Re: arcade 1up machines almost here... price drop now $399 CAD

On the subject of the cabs and risers, I wanted to share this YouTube video where Gamer Greg compares an Atari cabaret and upright with the 1UP with riser. It's nearly an identical form factor with the cabaret, which I like. The one caveat I'd add is that the CP level will vary from cabaret style to...

Re: Time for a CGCC Glow Up

Could we see this happen, Doc? Or could a Supreme Vidiot be tasked with making the necessary changes with proper permissions?

Re: arcade 1up machines almost here... price drop now $399 CAD

Cut&paste from my posts in the 1up thread in Anything Goes: [snip] Thanks for the cross-post Allan, I admittedly have a bias towards the Coin-Op forum and don't always check the others, so it's appreciated. Less than $200 is a nice price range for these. There are some really interesting possib...

Re: arcade 1up machines almost here... price drop now $399 CAD

I preordered my 1up Cabs: TMNT and Marvel. I've always wanted to get a real deal Konami X-men cabinet (4 player would he keen) but the price tag is STEEP! I think these will fill that desire as its 2-3 games and the footprint is smaller for us who don't have 2,000 square feet to have a proper game ...

Re: Handheld electronic games ...?

Did you have this space-themed game in your hand held arsenal? I didn't see it myself, but I wasn't very good at finding Waldo either - but if it's NOT there, maybe it can be? 8)

Sorry can't imbed an image - look up "Epoch Astro Command"

Re: News story of the week: Game not over

Me too! I wasn't that interested in a candy cab when I first jumped into collecting games, but I agree it would be an awesome addition to the arcade, all the more for reminding me of the Tokyo visit. A few popped up on here recently, but I"m kind of a cheap skate - I think I'll try to squirrel ...

Re: Top Tier on Tour - CNE Gaming Garage [HD]

Thanks for posting the walk-thru video! I didn't have the chance to head down, great to see all of the arcade games and pinball - there was a large selection than I anticipated.

News story of the week: Game not over

Discussion of a potential RSS feed on the main page serving up arcade and gaming-related articles prompted me to do this manually by picking out a "news story of the week" to post here. True, the story is over a week old, but it brings together two of my favourite interests - Japan and vid...

Re: Where are the deals goin' down?

Good to know. Although I have an account, I don't use Facebook regularly and didn't really know about these "interest groups" that people can join. I always love scouring 'for sale" ads on cgcc.ca, maybe we can entice some FB users to also post here over time. I'll look into the FB gr...

Re: Any BMX fans here ?

Nice acquisition! My teenage years were BMX years, although I didn't do any actual BMX racing at the various tracks in my hometown, but instead used it as arcade transportation. 8) My first BMX was a (not actual) blue Kuwahara. I'm not entirely clear, but I learned not long after I received it as a ...

Re: arcade 1up machines almost here... price drop now $399 CAD

Great idea to offer a riser for 1Up cabinets - you'd be getting very close to standard height, and it looks very sturdy too. I agree, lots of love for the original cabs - I'm very glad I got into the scene while cabs were actively sold at Starburst, here, and on Kijiji. I'd definitely have my work c...

Time for a CGCC Glow Up

Okay, I know what it looks like - I've been away for several months, and as soon as I show up again, I turn into a busy-body, but hear me out. This place used to be pretty active, and I think we've all noticed that activity has dropped significantly, and several long-term members (b1buwg97, ancient ...

Re: arcade 1up machines almost here... price drop now $399 CAD

Okay, these cabs have been out for roughly a year - have any CGCCers made the plunge to purchase one? What's your verdict? There's been some passionate discussions about these cabs on other forums - my own take is that I'm open to anything that provides gamers a "fix" so they can enjoy tha...
