I’m Ed.
I’ve fond memories of the arcades growing up. Back in a time when most high streets had some sort of gaming emporium.
I’ve dabbled with rekindling the memories via an arcade cabinet and various PCBs which I sold many years ago.
I’d like to get back into it with a single Cabinet to play the Naomi games which I still feel are very playable and good looking games.

Hi,

I'm Nico from Germany. We had/have no real arcade culture here due to strict youth protection laws, I think arcades were treated just like gambling machines and must thus not be made available to minors. I've only ever enjoyed the real cabs when we travelled to southern Europe. I have since acquired some Neo Geo goodness and want to get my feet wet with a cab of my own at some point :)

Hello, nice to be here!

Always been a gamer, and and as a kid dreamt of an own cab, kinda new to the hobby of candy cabs tho, first cab in 2017 (Blast City) second in 2019 (New Astro City).
One cab will be for bullet hell and the other for fighting games.

Love those 15khz scanlines on the MS9 !

Hi all!

I'm Chris, from the UK.

I'm a big fan of Japanese arcade games - have a lot of history with shmups and rhythm games.

I used to own machines in London, but have since consolidated everything locally. Hoping to continue to grow my collection and maybe one day open a public venue in the South West of England :D

Hi everyone, I'm a complete candy cab newb but I have a nice collection of CRT monitors. I'm actively looking for a nice cab to purchase on the east coast or surrounding areas (willing to drive). I currently have a good lead on a Blast City but I need help figuring out the situation with the PSU because it is labeled 220v on the back of the cab and the seller doesn't know much. Hoping someone here can help me.

Hi All
39 year old Arcade fan with very little skill at most games in his collection/selection. I’ve been lurking* around the cabinet sales thread for some time but still too woosie to purchase one and throw my stuff in. One day maybe, when I’m a big boy, until then everything I have is on PS2, PS3 and a low spec PC in the garage:

Game favourites: -
SFIII: 3rd Strike
VF 4:10th Anniversary Edition - For the VF1 graphics - Very niche choice!
Daytona USA
VF5 – Final Showdown
Outrun 2

*Who doesn’t love to lurk! I was practically a pro in Bill Smarts and Sgt Peppers Arcades back in the 90’s.

Chapter & Verus over

Hey all, Martin here from the UK. I've been into arcade machines all my life but lately been playing with the idea of getting myself an astro city (favourite can) to play some 3rd strike on (favourite game).

In the meantime I play on PS4 if anyone would like a game of SFV or 3rd strike 30Anniversary Edition.

When I have time over I like to build custom controllers so me and my mates can enjoy a "kind of" arcade experience at home haha.

Nice to meet you all

Hello lady and gents.
I have been in this hobby for some time now and have more machines than I have room for. Yet for some weird reason I still keep buying.
I reside in Denmark, love 90's games and big sprites.
Happy gaming.
