  1. Golden Axe is my top 3 favorite arcade games, so I got my order in within minutes of getting the notification email.
  2. Pictures of the XvSF internals and manual have been made public as part of FCC testing. In addition, the FCC filing shows there is a separate Sam's Club version in the works.
  3. What gets me is the "How-to-Play" screen for Galaxian/Galaga labels the left button as "Fire", so this screw-up wasn't an 11th-hour mistake but went through the good portion of the design process without anyone saying "hey, that isn't right".
  4. Super Pac-Man boxes spotted being offloaded at a Costco today: I've been thinking about grabbing a 40th anniversary Pac-Man cab for awhile, now I'm conflicted which one to get. This has a better overall game selection, but the 40th anniversary cab is more aesthetically appealing.
  5. I haven't tried this setup myself, but one setup you could consider would be a GRS Spinner intended for A1U Asteroid cabs: https://www.amazon.com/ThunderStick-Arcade-Spinner-for-Arcade1Up/dp/B07P5WJ7BC/ref=sr_1_1?crid=6Z8HHMZN9KC1&dchild=1&keywords=grs+spinner&qid=1598873347&sprefix=grs+sp%2Caps%2C151&sr=8-1 Paired with a 12-in-1/USB interface board: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NKJ3SKH/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Put them into an enclosure and buy the Atari Vault compilation on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/400020/Atari_Vault/ Edit: Looks like the 12-in-1 board is OoS, another alternative would be this spinner which I haven't personally used but does have a USB interface: https://www.amazon.com/RetroArcade-us-SpinTrack-Spinner-Perfect-Systems/dp/B085DJNFBL/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=grs+spinner&qid=1598875630&sr=8-4
  6. The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind had official mods by the dev team available for free only through Bethesda's website. IIRC, one added butterflies and other scenery improvements. Another added a small island to the game with a high difficulty dungeon. To my knowledge these never got included in any of the expansions or the GotY edition.
  7. Really weird having a Burger Time cabinet with four joysticks. A1U really should've bundled some dual-joystick games together in one cab: Karate Champ Robotron2084 Smash TV
  8. To quote Seinfeld: "Yeah, they're limited to as many as they can sell."
  9. Unfortunately the SegaAge forum contents were also tossed into the NintendoAge archive on the new GoCollect forum, so I think SegaAge will eventually be going away. I haven't heard anyone talk about what's going to happen to SegaAge or the PS Collecting forums. Those forums might just wind up becoming abandoned.
  10. Just an FYI: a group of the NintendoAge moderators and members who weren't happy with the recent direction of NintendoAge pooled their resources and started a spiritual successor to the forum: Video Game Sage. It went live about two weeks ago.
  11. The Marvel cabinet is available for pre-order @ $400 exclusively through the Arcade1Up website: https://arcade1up.com/products/marvel-cabinet According to the webpage the cabinet is going to be limited to 8,000 units, so anyone who has expressed interested in owning this cabinet may want to pre-order now.
  12. Another recommendation to Uninvited. On the 16-bit systems, the easy answer is Clock Tower. That game is built around jump-scares.
  13. Not all the cabinets are getting the deep discounts, mainly the ones with the Atari arcade games. The Street Fighter & Mortal Kombat kits from what I've read have been selling pretty well. I doubt we'll see another Arcade1Up cabinet like Asteroids or Centipede. Speaking of which, I picked up an Asteroids cabinet from Walmart a week ago for that $75 discount price. Aside from the known issues like the spinner and control deck artwork, I noticed the one I bought has an issue with the bezel. The bezel plexiglas is full of heavy scratches, particle board dust, and scuff marks on the inside. It is almost like someone at the factory dropped the bezel, slid it across the floor, then installed it over the LCD screen without so much as a wipe down. For $75 I can't complain too much, but I'd have been extremely annoyed if I bought this at launch for the full $300.
  14. If you're planning on selling on Atariage, keep in mind a lot of member probably will own most, if not all, of the games you plan on selling. If your goal is to sell everything as a lot, the price-per-game is probably going to have to be $1-2 to get an interested buyer. You may want to start by parting out the carts individually, then selling the dirt-common carts as a lot auction on eBay.
