    Arcades thread the third

    The last thread got autoarchived again, but a lot of things have happened since the last one, so here we go again! Let me break down what I know: GamePlay (Marley Station Mall, Glen Burnie, MD): current lineup is: jubeat (NEW!) DDR (recently refurbished) beatmania IIDX (refurbished late 2016) pop'n music DrumMania In The Groove Marvel vs. Capcom 2 The Simpsons Various redemption games re:gen (White Marsh Mall, White Marsh, MD): a used video game store. Recently lost their jubeat, but has added a Naomi Universal cabinet that they intend to rotate games in. Save Point (Townmall of Westminster, Westminster, MD): a used video game store. Has an ever-rotating selection of games and various pinball machines. I haven't been in a while and the game selection changes rapidly due to the number of events they bring games to, so I honestly can't tell you what's in the store right now. The Cave Gaming Center (Fairfax, VA): a 24 hour LAN gaming center located in the interior of a largely open-air shopping center. They recently added a bunch of arcade music games: jubeat beatmania IIDX pop'n music BeatStream SOUND VOLTEX Round1 (Exton Square Mall, Exton, PA): just recently opened and has way more games than I can list in this space. Standouts include Project DIVA Arcade Future Tone, Theatrhythm All-Star Carnival, Groove Coaster, CROSSxBEATS, Gunslinger Stratos, and should soon receive Maximum Tune 5. Got a hot arcade spot nearby I missed? Let everyone know here!

    Reminder to anyone in the area that we are having a multi-game music tournament at GamePlay on June 22 (about a week and a half away). We have been putting a lot of work into getting ready and I hope to have a few more surprises ready for the big day.

    I don't think it makes sense to invest in Project DIVA in 2019. Sorry.

    Haven't posted here in a bit, but I'm tentatively looking to bring back GamePlay's multi-game tournament series this year. Based on my personal availability and polling a small number of people it seems the date of June 22 currently works out the best. Is this something that interests anyone? Which games would you compete in?

    GU's games went back up in the last week or two. Games are being removed from GamePlay for MAGFest tomorrow night, and will return the following Tuesday.

    GU seems to have run into an issue with their game licensing and have had their arcade section shut down again. Hopefully it'll be resolved by the new year. I'm in the middle of overhauling IIDX and other games at GamePlay. IIDX has had its microswitches replaced again with lighter switches in response to popular demand. Race on by and check it out! In other news, I hear Save Point Arcade has opened on Westminster's main street. I haven't had a chance to go out there and not sure I will be able to anytime soon. Anyone over there check it out?

    Did you know today is the 20th anniversary of DDR's release? If you haven't gone to play DDR in a while, now's a great time to get back into it!

    Still pretty busy at work, and although it's not exactly close to the convention anymore, arcades are still up at Glen Burnie. If anyone happens to pass by on their way to or from Otakon, let me know what you think!

    The new quarterly Round 1 investor report was released earlier this month. Not much interesting information in it for this area (Towson R1 information is unchanged) but there are two new locations that will apparently open in the middle of next year: Spring 2019 (after 1 April):*Lincoln, NE (Gateway Mall)*Burbank, CA (Burbank Town Center)

    I've been extremely busy at work lately and haven't been able to keep up with arcade things. Anyone still coming by Marley Station? If there's anything that needs to be taken care of over there let me know!

    Per a good friend's analysis of the Round1 quarterly investor report, Round1 is opening a location in Towson Town Center around Fall of 2019.

    In case you guys haven't been following it on Facebook, here's some shots of the new combined GamePlay/Marley Bounce Party: The new location is on the lower level next to Macy's and Gold's Gym. Here's a map if you need it:

    Some GamePlay news: after this coming MAGFest (where we'll have most of the rhythm games in the arcade) we are moving to a new location within the mall. Updates will be posted on the GamePlay Facebook page, so be sure to keep an eye out for it!

    Has anyone been to GamePlay recently? I just did a long overdue maintenance session yesterday, focusing on beatmania IIDX and DDR. DDR has had the pads cleaned out and sensors rotated, which should address some sensitivity issues some people were reporting.

    Per Eric Holniker's Facebook page the Save Point retail location at TownMall of Westminster is dead as of yesterday. It sounds like everything is being moved to Gameroom Garage in Hagerstown over the course of this week.

    The Cave in Fairfax has added a Groove Coaster 3 and a Museca 1 1/2. Just went on a short weekend trip to Round1. I don't really get bored of Maximum Tune 5 at all. I hope some place a bit closer gets it in so I don't have to drive almost three hours each way to play it...

    Guest Request: 2015

    She's been mentioned by a few already, but Mizuki Nana is probably one of the few guests that would get me to buy plane tickets to anywhere in the continent on the spot. Even more so than anyone else in the short list just posted. Would love to see some Vocaloid related guests and events too; I don't know what Crypton's plans are for their Vocaloids after Miku Expo, but I'm certain an appearance at next year's Otakon would do much to keep their upwards momentum going.
