    If anybody lives in Michigan, I found this store over the weekend called Destiny Games. They have old gaming systems like Nintendo and Colecovision, and all the games to go with it, too :D I was so excited.

    Hey! I've seen that movie and I love it! Very cool that you got to go there!

    So Nintendo is cutting the price on the Wii from 249.99 to 199.99. But not only are they doing this, but they are offering for a 50 rebate for those who have already paid full price!

    ^ I just went to Amazon and checked on the Mario games. Yeah, some of them are going for $90+, and that's Amazon's pricing :confused: Wow. Guess people are better off getting them used.

    Congrats! I used to go ever since i could remember till i turned 14, 1-2 times a year. FUN PLACE. I have family that live up there so i grew up thereish lol.

    I tried planning a trip up there in the summer of 08, but ended up spending my money getting place near the beach... tho i had a great time, i miss Fun Spot.

    No one has bemoaned the slow demise of the neighborhood arcade as much as I have. I really think modern video games (which are now capable of downloading arcade games) and computer emulation have pretty much Wal*Marted them to endangered species classification.

    Of course, another part of the problem were the various low lives and riffraff (and I don't mean the character from Heathcliff, Underdog or Rocky Horror) pretty much loitering around there as... but beside that, the only arcades are in movie theaters, and you have to buy a movie ticket to play them. Correction.. you have to buy a movie ticket to have access to them. The way movie prices cost, they should give you one free game or something in the price.

    The only arcade I can even get to is one in Salem, and even then I need A) a ride over there and B) It's only open from mid-spring to Columbus Day. There used to be a pretty good one I didn't frequent (again, low lives and thugs) that got bulldozed last year for more annoying (and unsellable) condos and a possible Ikea... and even then, it's not even scheduled to open for 2 years... and I mean "Scheduled to open" which means it could be even 3 years with foreseeable delays. And that's if they still have funding. Worst part is, there's an abandoned movie theater across the street that hasn't been touched. And an abandoned Circuit City building.... but that just happened earlier this year, so they couldn't have known about it.

    ^ You might spot some racing games in the "lobby" of a restaurant, or one of those those Win-A-Prize things, but that's all I've seen these days :/

    There's still a number of Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga arcade games at bowling alleys and roller skating rinks (those the latter of those are hard to find too!). Those are probably my top 2 1980s games to play at the arcades right there anyway.
    (Though it'd be great to find the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade games, X-Men, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and some classic Street Fighter.):)

    Yeah... you'll occasionally see a Arcade machine here and there... and they really frown on people going to bowling alleys to play the arcade games (unless they're an amusement center... but I'm talking straightforward bowling alleys)... I once found a Simpsons arcade machine at a Burger King. It was never turned on, and I think it was because of aforementioned riff raff... and they got rid of it quite quickly.

    Really... that Simpsons game made me wish that Konami got the home video game license for the Simpsons. I HATED Acclaim's Simpsons games. Awkward controls... meaningless repetitive missions. I just want a good ol' beat'em up.

    I just got Okami. Awsome game based on japanese mythology. You play as this wolf who is a god and you can "draw" on the environmet to manipulate it.

    Here's a game that I'm hooked on for Nintendo DS: Dragon Quest IX. Anyone else a fan of this game?

    Does anyone know the name of that three player game that was an arcade one with a warrior, some random girl fighter wearing less than nothing, and a dwarf? Maybe there were even two dwarfs? It was suppose to get the players to work together but most of the time I would play alone controlling each of them in a row:insatiable:....

    I actually knew it until you asked, but after just looking up a list of randome game names for Nintendo, I can safely say


    I actually played that in one of those (overpriced, by the way) Arcade Classics machines a month ago. Now that I think about it, no wonder I couldn't remember the name fully until I saw it... I though it had the word "dungeon" in it.

    There was also one just like it that had just four.. vikings I want to say? They each could only do one thing...
    And yes, both games eat money like candy :(
