Late, breaking news

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

First, the BIG news.  We have installed a 4 X-Box lan center (licensed through iGames) in the gaming area.  Cost to play is $4 per hour per person or $8 per hour per console for multi-player games.  Currently available and licensed games are Hal Wars and Command and Conquer 4:  Modern Warfare 2.  Coming soon will be Halo 3:  ODST and Forza 3, as well as wired controllers.  How fast we add titles will depend on what people want to play, whether or not we can license the game, and how much the lan gets used.

Second, a subtle hint that if you enjoy the Episode 1 pinball machine, you should get your fill of playing it now.  It is soon to be rotated out of the arcade in favor of…well, let me keep some suprises, although if you follow news on the pinball industry it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out...

Trying to figure out if the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 board is worth sending out for repair.  Whatever is wrong with it is beyond my abilities (it uses surface-mount components, which I am not good enough with a soldering iron to work on beyond the big parts.)  Will update when I know more.
