Hello!

I've recently bought my first cab, a New Astro City. I'm on the lookout for a 1 slot MVS motherboard and some games.
I'll probably be spending most of my time in the Marketplace.

Greetings from Sweden!

Hello!

Novice arcade collector who stumbled upon your forums.

I currently own an upright Outrun, a Neo Geo 4 slot MVS and an Altered Beast cab. Waiting to pick up an empty Aero City that I'll turn into a multi game cab I think.

Cheers!

Hello guys,
I am maddec. I am a Retro collector for more than 20 years in video game consoles from Vectrex to game & watch, from famicom to super nintendo and later.
I jumped into arcade few years ago by buying a Taito Egret II and a R-TYPE pcb.
Back at the time, I played mostly Shinobi and various shooters with my coins.
Most arcade memorable moment: playing on Sega R360 in my local arcade in the 90ies & Darius 3 screen cabinet in Akihabara Taito station.

I am a Japan enthusiast studying the language for several years now and went several times in Japan to hunt some rarities outside of Superpotatoes :).

On my watching list currently: Taito stool(really sick of my current ones), Konami Battlantis, Konami Haunted Castle, R-Type II, Super Mario VS, Castlevania VS, Gunbird II.

Happy to join !
Retro collector. Japan enthusiast. Castlevania completionist. R-Type hardcore player.

Hello, my name is Brandon, I’m a video game collector who is just getting into the arcade hobby. Just picked up a sega blast city cabinet locally; trying to learn a thing or two and figure out what I should pick up in terms of games (research so far suggest picking up a ar-pi-cade

Hoping to also pick up some taito stools at some point to!

Greetings,

Watashi no namae ha Daniel (Who doesn't own a japanese keyboard...)

I've been collecting arcades for about 10years now, at the moment the basement is equipped with 2NC, 1NNC, 1NUC, Virtual Pinball, Lethal Enforcers *pew**pew* & TV-game.
The garage is the current home for 4 Blast citys, air hockey, Mega33 and 3 pokercabinets which will be converted to dedicabs.

That's about it for now :)

You don't need a Japanese keyboard. You should be able to set a localized keyboard in your operating system and switch between them. Then just type the characters that build up the hiragana you're trying to type using your native keyboard. E.g. 私の名前はダニェルだ。

Hi ! I'm Quentin, (un)known on the Internet as defalt. I mainly collect games for the Neo Geo console, but as it's also an arcade platform, things went on so that now I also play some arcade games, mainly shooters. The only problem is, I'm way too much obsessed with unreleased games...

Hiya i'm Avi, though most call me Ruby (hence the name)

I'm a 16 year old Canadian HS dropout with a mindset for Arcade machines. I've collected throughout the years since i was around 8 years old. first console i've bought in the collection was the NES. and the first game i played on it was Jaws......... yeah i was pretty dumb back then. but now that i'm older. And i have experience with carpentry (Father has been a red seal approved carpenter for around 40ish+ years now) I believe it's time to move onto the Arcade genre and build some wicked arcades.

Anyways. I'm glad to meet you all :) And i hope to have a fun and relaxing time around!

Hi all! My name is Nick. I read the wiki from Arcade Otaku; it is awesome! It is so great to find this place. I have been looking for a place to buy authentic arcade cabinets. It is my childhood dream to own one:)

Hello. Recently joined the forum after hearing that candy cabs often coke up for sale. I’m a super street fighter II player in Ireland and we want to get some cabs for the community.
