Hey all,

My name is Nate, and I just got a Blast City cabinet in addition to my Neo Geo 4 slot. I just thought I'd come and join this forum since I've been lurking a bit already.

Hi there. Time to insert my 100¥ here.
I'm from Germany a.k.a. the arcade desert and I got into Japanese arcade gaming when I lived 1 year in Kyoto. Visiting the A-cho arcade 2 or 3 times a week was quite normal. After going back to the desert my friend already bought two astros. We played a lot 3rd strike on these machines and I thought that I definitely have to own myself a candy cabinet some day.
The day came last year in Autumn. I bought a Blast City for about 500$. It quite a nice cab for a beginner imo. Recently I only use a MVS and a Arcana Heart pcb (with I have problems with), but in the future I would like to play Atomiswave, Naomi and of course a lot jamma pcbs on it.
I will also use it to play dreamcast and maybe xbox 360 on it.

And if I have more space in the future more and more candy cabs will come^^ A NNC, Capcom Mini, Lindbergh etc. would be nice.

Keeping it brief...
Hello, my name is...

Leo and I'm from Holland.
Started lurking, signed up a while back but never posted until now.
Currently I own an Aero City and just a few PCB's: Commando, Gun Smoke and Bomb Jack.
I plan on sticking with collecting just the games I grew up on... early to mid 80's stuff.

That's about it for now.

Hello everyone, I am Romain from France !

I have been always been into Video Games since I am a child. I have owned a few consoles including Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast and Neo Geo CD (!). I was also playing arcade when you could still find arcades everywhere and cabinets in and bars. However, while I have spent days in such places, most of the time I did not have any coin to put in them and I would just smash the buttons around pretending to be playing during the attract mode. Puzzle Bubble, Metal Slug, Samurai Showdown 2, King of Fighters and Knight of the Round were my personal favorites.

Now than I am a grown up earning good money and quite desperate about today's video games standards, I've been a bit more into retro gaming. While playing games like Street Fighter 4, Cave shooters or Neo Geo games antilogy, I started considering buying a nice candy cab to be able to play those kind of games in perfect condition. I finally bought myself a New Astro City last October.

I own some nice games too. I nearly manage to gather my "personal MVS top" : KoF 98, Samurai Shodown 2, Metal Slug X and 3, Magical Drop 3, Garou MOTW, Windjammers. I also own a few CPS-2 games like Super Street Fighters 2 X, D&D ToD (euro !) and Progear, F3 with Puzzle Bubble 4, Konami Hornet Gradius 4 and even CPS-3 with Street Fighter III: Third Strike.

I also recently buyed a euro cabinet so I can work on it. I already remade the control pannel by, changing the stick and buttons and resolded a new jamma connector 8-)

I am more into shooters and puzzle games. I love versus fighters but I am pretty terrible at playing them.

Thanks !
New Astro is really a great cab indeed. Too bad there is no quick rotate system on it.

HI,

I'm Melissa and I am located in the woods of the Northeaster US. I have been collecting consoles for over twenty years, upright arcades for the last year + and I am hoping to pick up my first candy Cab (Egret II) this week. This site was recommended by a few folks I know. I look forward to meeting some new gamers and learning more about my newest addition.

Thanks
