    Hey French Folks!

    Anyone in Paris?

    I'll be there the afternoon of the 9th through the afternoon of the 13th. I will be seeing some of the sights, but wondered if there were any good gaming stores or arcades around town.

    It's really easy to get to as well, via Metropolitan subway line. We went there earlier this year and rented an apartment near the Saint Michel station (near Notre-Dame), and it took all of 15-20 mins on the subway-line to the Nation station, then it's a 2 minute walk from there.

    It's well worth it.

    Arcade Street was nice

    Not 100% my taste since I don't do fighters or billion bullet cave style games, but they did have a couple of the Metal Slugs, a 4 player new Pac Man game, and Michael Jackson's Moonwalker.

    They need to learn a bit more on maintaining those systems. They had a Neo Geo MV1FS system board on the counter and it had an obvious leaking NiCd on it and I wanted to look at the Naomi 1 and 2 they had behind the glass to see how bad the boards were damaged by leaking supercaps, but I restrained myself on that.

    I went through 10 Euros pretty quick before heading out to find dinner somewhere.

    I'm heading to the auto show tomorrow at Porte de Versailles. Anyone want to go?

    I want to see if Mazda has the 2016 MX-5 on display.

    Yeah, it cost 51 Euros to go from the hotel to the exit and I walked down the offramp the last 1.5KM to the venue.

    It was only 14.50 Euros to go back to the hotel. The traffic SUCKED but the show was great!

    I also got to knock an item off my bucket list - I saw the Mona Lisa in person.

    Wow! First I didn't know that there'd be a French forum here, and second... I didn't know a new arcade had opened in Paris. I used to live there in the early 2000's, everything used to be closing down there, and I thought la tete dans les nuages was closed too, I guess not, but they had average games. Good on arcade street, I hope I get to see it again if I ever go back there. I wonder how much money they make, if they get enough customers.

    Whoops mal repondu! Enfin bon, j'espere qu'il pourrait encore y avoir plus d'arcades en france/a paris. J'habite a Toronto, et dans ma rue il y a un magasin de vetements avec des pinball dedans lol Et y'a un bar avec une petite table atari, on y pose son verre et il y a plein de jeux atari comme galaga, galaxian, space invaders etc.
