    Never made it to Super Arcade but use to frequent Western Arcade at the same (old) location back in the day. Have always heard good things about them though. In the same general area (not exactly by SD) you also have James Games in Upland. Haven't been there in a long time either but the guy who runs it was always cool.

    Thanks for the heads up ! I don't know Azusa ill be googling that in a second. How soon is "soon" on the relaunch, and why a reliance is it a facelift?

    Thanks for the link


    EDIT- Both these places seem to be in LA or very near it. I was hoping they were close to SD
    Ill keep them in mind for LA visits.
    The search goes on

    Question to the SoCal residents- Where are the arcades in SoCal not the large advertised LA ones but stuff near SD if any.
    Back in NYC alot of them didn't advertise I'm hoping its same here since I don't see any.
    Arcades are practically dead here in SD. There was one in El Cajon's Parkway Plaza, but I haven't been there in a while so I don't know if it still exists. You could try your luck at Nickel City or Boomer's, but I don't know if either of them still has anything worth playing. Belmont Park has an arcade with some pinball machines and a handfull of oldschool games. The Dave & Busters here doesn't have much of note unless you're really into lightgun games and racing games, though they do have a few interesting things like Time Crisis 5, Mario Kart, and a couple of pod-like cabs with air/space combat games. I think your best bets are barcades such as Brewskie's Bar & Arcade and The Coin Op, the former has all of their games set to free-play while the latter has a better selection of games.

    Thanks so much for the thorough reply, Ill check and see if the EL Cajon spot is up and running and ill check out those bar-cades though I'm not much for drink, beggars can't be choosers.
    Ive never been in a D&B even thought there were several in NY their commercials made them seem catered to non gamers and drinking, but Id like to check out some modern racers and gun games possibly with a non gamer friend. Thanks again Sama also love the sig gif

    The places mentioned all look great. I'll have to make time to get out to each if them.

    By chance does anyone know of any arcades in the orange county area?

    I would like to as well.

    I just moved down from NorCal, and right before I left I was able to meet-up with a few forum members from here for some fighting and shmup games. Good guys up there, wished I met up with them earlier for more regular nights, but I just had a kid last year which made the social life harder. Now that our baby has settled into a routine it'll be a lot easier.

    If I had the multi cab setup and the space to host some game nights, i totally would. But I've got a single NAC in a small apartment that's littered with baby toys. Not really conducive to hosting a night. But I'd gladly join in the fun if someone else here would host.

    Opt2not, where in SoCal did relocate to?

    When I finish my garage remodel I will be up for it, might be a while though, because I'm getting married in November.

    I have to save up for that, but I have set aside some cash for an emergency candy cab buy, if a deal pops up : )

    My favorite quote in this thread:

    "So you have time and money to acquire more cabs but none to fix a deal that went sour years ago?"
    Oh boy I know the feeling........
