#14330739 The Home Arcade Tremendous Deals and Discussion Thread. Renamed by a beautifu...

Posted by purbeast on Today, 04:14 PM

I've heard the line that these things are 3/4 the size of the original, but it has to be a lie. I saw a youtube video of the guy with a vintage turtles cab next to this one and it was twice the size.

It's just because when you translate 3/4 into volume it doesn't feel like it's 3/4.

 

But I believe the measurements are 3/4 the size.  Like if you laid all of the pieces of wood that made up the real cabinets and the A1U cabs they would be 3/4 the actual size.  But when you put it all together it just feels way smaller.  

 

Like if you ever build model cars as a kid, a lot of those were 1/24 or 1/32 scale models.  But that doesn't mean that 24 or 32 of them together would be the size of the real car.  It is just the translation of scales into including volume and 3d space is misleading.

I think the physical media thing is also a generational thing.  All the old farts like myself growing up with cds, dvds, and physical games want it because we want to own our property and be able to play it when we want on our terms.

 

All the young people who grew up with mp3s, netflix, and digital games don't care about that because they never really knew it and were never tied to it like us old farts.  Some old people have are fine with digital and young people with physical, etc.  But I think as more of a general feeling, that is the vibe I get.

as expected, my 2hr drive to find the FF cab was all for naught, I had nothing. 

 

What was unexpected was 3/3 Walmarts were WIPED OUT in terms of Arcade1up cabs, except for one store in the hood that had this lonely guy...

If anything, this made me NOT want the turtles cab,.. Not sure if its cuz its not on a riser or anything but wow, this thing looked comically TINY..  Or maybe its because I recently played on the real full size arcade cabinet a few months ago... 

May I ask for those that have it or plan on getting it, what is the attraction?  What makes you guys want this one? 

Is that the first time you've seen one in person?  

 

They are ALL that tiny.

Bodes well for those that don't want consoles to go fully digital.

That is a good point.  I am glad to see this.

 

But it could also just be that people don't want to buy an Xbox One.5 X.

Oh wow I did just get one at Best Buy.

 

As soon as I changed to in store pickup and pressed preorder, it failed like once and I tried again and it added to cart and I checked out without any issue.

Does anyone know anybody who actually got an order through Best Buy?  




#14326061 Super Mario 3D All Stars (Physical) up for preorder

I never got the sunshine hate.  It’s different, but still good.  It has some rough edges, but I think that’s because it tried to innovate.  I like that it’s unique.  Even with how amazing 64 was at the time, and still is to me, I like what we got with sunshine over just a cookie cutter sequel to 64 that could have been.  Better than what we got with the New Super Mario series I think.  I’d still love a cookie cutter 64 sequel though too.

I actually think you hit the nail on the head.  I think a lot of the dislike for Sunshine was the fact that it was not Mario 64 2.  It was a completely different Mario game, and after how much everyone loved Mario 64, everyone expected a sequel to that game.  

 

I just remember thinking it felt more like Pilot Wings than Mario lol.  It controlled just like the damn jetpack.

Target is currently showing me an estimated delivery date between November 13th and November 18th. Which, while not ideal, sounds like it's getting delivered faster than some other retailers. A lot of people are hopping on Ant Online for that bundle deal. But, I ordered a video game for my brother's birthday from them once, and it took over a month for them to mail it to me. I'm also pretty sure that they are in China. Very much like Play Asia.

Target didn't offer release day shipping and said it will ship on the 12th.  The 12th is a Thursday so it makes sense that if you don't get it Friday, you won't get it over the weekend either, which means the 16th is the following Monday which would be 2 days after it shipped.

 

So the 13th to 18th sounds fair which basically means it will take 1-4 business days to get to you.  Sounds about right to cover the whole country.

I'm trying to order a fucking washer/dryer combo that is on sale at Best Buy and it ends tonight and I can't even do that because of this bullshit.

Wait a sec, why does the Neo Geo bartop have 6 buttons?  Which Neo Geo game requires 6 buttons?  

None.

No matter what the new name is no one is going to like it.  That is how it always is for any new sports team.  Then after like a year or two nobody cares and everyone is fine with it.
