    If Sega wasn't such an ass with licensing and whatnot I'd totally attend a tournament like this if Project Diva Future Tone was available to be licensed properly to companies other than Round 1. It's unfortunate that deals can't be worked out for smaller arcades like GamePlay to get at least one machine for people to enjoy...

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

  2. 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?

  3. 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?

  4. 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)

  5. 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

    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!

  6. 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.
