Hi guys. I'm from Austria and I recently bought myself an Astro City.
Now I'm in the midst of setting this thing up, and I think this forum here is the right place for me :D

Hello,

I'm from France paris. I used to be an arcade and video game player in the late 80'.
I stopped playing for a long time, until 2 years ago when I have the opportunity to get a arcade cabinet. Paris is a big city, but small appartment so small cab is needed. I finally find a capcom cute that fit perfectly in my appartment. I like to play old arcade classic game (donkey kong, Track&Field,...) with my children

Regards

Hello from Brazil. I want to revive some of my great childhood arcade moments, that's why I joined this site. Most of my love goes to Capcom and SNK games. :)
