Is galloping ghost the only arcade place in chicago? its way too far :(
No, but it's the only one you'll ever want to go to ever again once you've been there! Really, to answer your question, there's Nickel City in Northbrook which isn't horrible but has gone downhill IMO, and a few others, but it's like comparing one of those tiny little eco cars to a fully loaded Escalade. The sheer vast array and variety of GGA blows away the rest.
I think there was some talk of this earlier in the thread, but do you any of you guys use U-verse for internet? How are the speeds?
And we definitely need to go the arcade again. I nominated in the next few weeks. LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN.
I've got the AT&T Elite plan for $19.99(usually like $40-45 I think), thru some promo like 8 months or so back. Not bad as far as gaming goes. Doesn't seem as quick as my Comcast was, but doesn't bother me at all. Keep in mind I'm not one of those who use software to measure DL/UL speeds, though. Also, I'm in for the arcade, I'm having withdrawl, it's been a couple months.
If we have a meet up again you can at least meet some of the Chicago CAGs. We buy/trade games and guides at meetups as well. It is a little far, but it is an easy drive from the Northern burbs, since you can avoid most of the city traffic.
Got some games in my backlog through some clearence scores that I still have sealed that I wouldn't mind trading off(an extra Fable 3 LE being one). Who knows if I'm gonna get to these things, so I might as well bring along some to try and get some stuff I'm more interested in. Last time I didn't take part in the swap portion of the meet-up, since I came in on kinda short notice, the last week or two beforehand. I'm interested in it this time.
