    Arcade Game Location Database!

    COPIED FROM OLD FORUMS...

    Personally i know that i see alot of arcade machines on the web that i want to be able to play locally. Alot of these machines are either too big or too expensive for alot of poeple to have in their homes. Thats is why i was thinking of keeping some sort of database of local arcades and arcade games, so people could look here for their favorite games and know where to find them.

    I know that this might be difficult due to the speed at which some operators remove machines, and the lack of fixed locations these days, but i figured that it wouldnt hurt to try anyway.

    So here's the idea, how about we get a list of arcades available in various locations and some of the bigger machines / obscure / whatever machines that they have. People can also request certain games and if a memeber has info on where one is, then please post.

    Here Goes...

    i will be going to maroochydore in the next couple of weeks and most probably the gold coast again. so i will get pics (maybe) but will definitely update the gold coast one on caval, cause that place is gigantic and i can't remember everything there.

    Adeptus, you're missing out, those mech machines are sweet. they're like 3m long x 1.5m wide x 2m high. they don't move but it's like sitting in the mech. there's working radar screens, normal view screen, graph screens with health etc, like 4 joysticks and a throttle / thrust lever beside the seat. it's insane. the guy that set us up reckons he's been playing for ages and he still can't use the mech to it's full ability.

    the one on caval avenue is definitely the best arcade place i've ever been to. it's ginormous, you need like $30 just to play everything you like, let alone the stuff you have gotten sick of. they have some sweet gun games i've never seen anywhere else too,i'll have to find out what the hell they are called

    Great photos!

    I liked the shooting gallery and how you said it went nuts when you took the photo!

    I see Timezone is (mainly) all driving and shooting games

    How faded is the Dracula sideart!

    Look forward to more from everyone. Good work!

    Didn't see this thread until just now. I have a few games up and running at the moment. They are:

    1] Street Fighter III 3rd Strike - VS City [head-to-head cabinet]
    2] Super Street Fighter II Turbo - VS City [head-to-head cabinet]
    3] King Of Fighters XI - Astro City 2

    ALL cabinets have brand new SANWA sticks and buttons on them.

    Some other decent arcades in Sydney and notable games:

    1] Galaxy World - George St [KOF XI, Samurai Shodown 6, T5, SFII WW, NeoGeo Battle Coliseum]
    2] Galaxy World - Haymarket Market City [SF3:3s on a crap cabinet, T5, KOF 02 and some others]
    3] Timezone - Chatswood Westfields [SF3:3s, KOF's, T5 and a few others]
    4] Timezone - Castle Hill Shopping Centre [SF3:3s, T5 on crap cabinets]
    5] Laser 190 - Burwood Road, Burwood [SFA3, SF Ex 2, T5, KOF 98, KOF 02, KOF Neowave, NeoGeo Battle Coliseum and more]

    Most of those arcades I listed have some good games but their cabinets and sticks really affect the quality of play and in general make the game not as fun. Also, many of the Uni's around Sydney [and Melb etc] have pretty good arcades. Sydney Uni has a great selection of Japanese cabinets and games so does Maquarie Uni and UNSW.

    In Brisbane the best arcade they have is called "Replay" cant remember the exact location. Melbourne CBD has alot of arcades around the Chinatown section - I think 3 to be exact with tons of 3s and KOF to be played... it's like going to HK! In summary Melbourne Chinatown area has the best bunch of arcades remaining in Australia full of Japanese cabinets, excellent players and great games.
