This was posted in the parent forum (West) but I don't recall seeing it posted here, which is probably the most relevant audience:

447 Stockton in SF.

I'll try to check it out soon, unlike that place up Powell that apparently opened and closed before I ever got the chance to lay eyes on it.

Thanks to 62t for the post.

That arcade sounds amazing. What a lineup! Definitely putting it on my list for this weekend or the next to show some support.

Think $100 is enough to beat Ikaruga?

Anyone know of any arcades that have a lot of claw machines/prize winning machines? They have a few of them down in Socal and wondering if anyone knows if there's any up here. I'd suspect there might be one hidden in a asia-town type area as that's how it was in Socal.

Reposted from the arcades thread:

Since it hasn't been mentioned here yet, a new arcade opened in San Mateo a few months ago. It's called Gamecenter and has a pretty good selection of games, plus a $7 all-day fighting games pass and a side room with TVs you can hook consoles to. It's largely fighting games and Gundam vs. Gundam, but they have a few shooters, D&D Tower of Doom, Virtua Cop 3, and a free-play cocktail cab with a bunch of older games on it. Pretty excellent.

A sweet bonus is that it's literally right around the corner from the Off the Grid food trucks on Monday, so you can grab some awesome food and then play arcade games all evening. That's probably what I'm doing tomorrow.

Keep an eye our for special events (tournaments, game happy hours, etc.) on their Facebook or Twitter at @GCAracde.

Read my short write-up (with photos) or listen to me repeat pretty much everything I just said on VGHangover below:


Off the Grid is crazy, by the way. If you haven't been able to make it to one of the ones in SF/Oakland/Berkeley, San Mateo's is smaller but there's still more than enough food options. Korritos!

FYI, if anyone wants a good alternative to gamestop, go to CeX. They seem to have good trade in values and they take all kinds of electronics. I just sold a cell phone, zune and a bunch of games

webuy.com is their website

Anyone going to the Uncharted 3 preview event on Tuesday, 10/18 at the Metreon? I'll be there but I'm looking for another ticket as well. If you have one and you decide not to go for whatever reason, send me a PM!

I was first there around 2pm and the event didn't even get started till almost 7:20. They were having issues with registration. Then issues with the tournament. It was a complete mess. I however was first there so I got to be team Drake's leader. I also was in the first team to loose for the night. I was forced to play on a 3d tv and not able to change any of the assists cause I was the host and they wanted to be in control.

The previous Uncharted 2 event was much cooler and the two guys from Naughty Dog were basically retelling stuff that's already been released in videos about the production of the game.

For the time and money spent to go up to SF for this event it was not worth it.

Damn, 2 PM??

Just seconding that the event was super disorganized. They showed footage/3D gameplay/did Q&A with I think an environment modeler and texture artist for a while, then "started" the tournament around 8. It took 40 minutes to get through the first three rounds, and they were only five minutes long each. They didn't even have the big screen on for maybe half an hour. Hopefully tonight and tomorrow's events go a little smoother.

I thought the 3D gameplay demo actually looked pretty good on the theater screen, but I was on one of the 3D TVs for the tournament and it was pretty blurry and disorienting. My team lost our first round, so after that it was just a bunch of sitting around and watching people play. Kind of a disappointing event.

The coolest thing they raffled off was one of those new official headsets, and I was just two numbers away from winning it. :cold: That would have made my night.

I've got some passes left for the Wii U Experience this Friday in SF from 8-9:30 PM. They'll have New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo Land, and probably some other games to try out. Let me know ASAP if you're interested. 17 and up.

Hello bay area caggers

I'm wondering if any of you are planning on going out for Black Friday/Brown Thursday this year. I'm looking for someone to team up with in the south bay to hit up Walmart. Tag teaming that stuff so we can get everything we want together. If anyone is up for that let me know.
