    What a douche. Hey, lets slam Pinside with one account and ask for help on another. Sounds about right.

    Quoted from BillySastard:

    Why is his age constantly mentioned? It's brought up twice in that short article, and at the beginning of the arcade walkthrough. Am I supposed to be impressed that he's 21? Right now I roll my eyes every time is see it.

    I just assumed it's to put things in perspective for the reader.
    He keeps saying his place is better than any arcade that was around in the 80's, yet he 21 years old which probably makes him born in 1998 (depending on what month he was born).
    He has no clue what the vibe or depth of a true 80s arcade would be like just based on age alone.
    That like me opening up a Speakeasy and telling people my place is way more authentic than anything that was ever available during the Prohibition Era.

    His birthday falls on the Allentown Pinfest or right around it.

    And yes, lines like "all of our games are more expensive than most think, $100 "OLD GAME" specials went away 25 years ago" do come off as disingenuous to me.

    #759 1 year ago

    The real answer to "what would make an 80s arcade better" is 90s pins.

    Because he took money from me on two occasions before and didn’t use it for the represented or intended purpose, does that mean he used it to open this, or to purchase games for the Mega Arcade?

    And if so, doesn’t that mean I’m part owner?

    You get a free 1 hour pass. But don’t go 1 hour and 6 min if you don’t want to be charged for the second hour.

    Kid shouldn’t nickel and dime people to death, he’ll lose his customer that way. I suggest splitting it down the middle, 29 minutes round down, 31 minutes round up. Played 2 hr 29min, charge for 2 hours, etc.

    I see FB posts on people asking about newer machines....he claims it's "subjective" and won't really answer other than to talk about earthshaker...and when someone made a comment about it being over 30 years old. Their post got deleted.

    I also have reapeatedly seen people ask for lists of games they have available, ask if they will get certain games, etc... with no response.

    Also saw someone mention they were more a 90s kid and would love to see a few specific 90s games. Sounded like one specific person was even a current customer. His response was to almost basically make fun of how what he asked for wasn't "classic", so no. They won't get them.

    This kid is going to fail miserably as soon as family money runs out....sad he can't learn

    Yeah man. Don’t listen to your customers = formula for disaster and eventual closure. Especially at such a young age, if he can’t draw from experience and suggestions from others and openly welcome constructive criticism, it won’t last long.

    You mean you wouldn’t rather play F-14 or Earthshaker if a Metallica, MB or Deadpool was sitting there?

    He knows what they mean by “new” games. Him assuming people are stupid and treating them as such will be another one of his continuous, big mistakes.

    He could at least be honest and say “with start up costs, right now we cannot afford to add brand new games at the moment. But we do plan to add several new titles as we grow our customer base and expand.”

    Aside from pinball I also collect arcade games and have a fairly sizable collection (about 70 machines mostly 70s-80s).
    I'm not really into 90s games (only own a few), but that doesn't change the fact that there is a growing demographic of players that grew up with scrolling beat em ups, fighting games, drivers, shooting games etc.
    In the current arcade/barcade/retrocade scene there are many 90s arcade games that are a staple and you must have.
    People love the four player scrolling button masher beat em ups like The Simpsons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles etc.
    These are some of the biggest earners in the pay as you go model as players like to sit there with their friends and play until they beat the game.
    They are not the classics from my childhood, but they are still classics none the less in the current era.
    Things like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter etc (same thing).
    Games where you can get multiple people playing in tandem are a must.
    Things like Rampage, Ivan Stuart Off Road, NBA Jam etc.
    Old stuff is cool, but you have to have variety and cover multiple decades as thats what your clientele wants.
    Especially so when you're talking about families that will come in where different people in the group are from different generations.

    OMG you’re stealing his customers!! Earth shaker is new and exciting to him , especially since it came out 9 years before he was an embryo.

    Classic Narcissist is my diagnosis. I’m not really a Psychologist I just play one one the internet .

    I can tell you about the vibe in the 60’s, 70’s, early 80’s I stopped playing in the early 80’s when EM’s vanquished .

    This kid is like a broken record. I remember York 2015 his games were crap and he was begging people for 5$ saw it first hand. Then in the following year he’s got a gofundme flood scam going on. I see him in Allentown running around with cupcakes (18th birthday ) and I avoided him thinking he was charging for them. Later that day I see he’s buying a Skyjump in the flea market with no intentions of repaying anyone for his basement flood. Defend him and support him if you may, I just can’t.

    Adults do this, children will press the modded credit button until the lives reach 999 and the game will run on forever until you turn it off. I’ll never put a Konami beat ‘em up in a “free play” setting ever again after having to listen to The Simpsons run hours on end.

    #784 1 year ago

    well, he took some advice and posted info about the games above them it seems

    unless those are warnings about his 5 minute rule

    Quoted from JodyG:

    I had never heard of it so I checked out the pinball pa website.
    Looks like they have approx. 200+ video games and 120+ pins.
    If I’m ever in the area I will definitely check it out!

    The number of games there is almost overwhelming. Its been over a year since I have been there, but the selection is pretty excellent. They didn't have many games under 5 years old, but there are plenty of cool games like Bonzai Run that I have never been able to play before.

    #787 1 year ago

    I must be a glutton for punishment, checking back to see what dumb shit he writes on his Facebook page.
    If anybody posts anything contrary to what he perceives as his own vast knowledge of pinball and video games, he will actually argue with them in the comments. Instead of just admitting that he cant afford newer games yet, he will just deny they are good games or he'll say they are sparse and hard to find.
    I grew up in the 70s and 80s and I personally havent seen as many pinballs on location as I do now. They are everywhere and pinball is HUGE!
    I've been collecting pins since before this kid was born and I've forgotten more info than he knows total. I used to be indifferent toward this whole venture and just kind of shrugged it off. But now seeing the way he spouts off how great he is and manipulates his comments by deleting anything negative, I'm actively rooting against it.
    When local people tell me they may check it out, I tell them to just come to my place and play for free.

    Pinball PA is pretty incredible, I would guess they're well over that 120 pin number and have some seriously rare titles. Most of the early Sterns (Star Gazer, Viper, Iron Maiden, Catacomb, Orbiter 1, Quicksilver, etc), a Joust head-to-head, probably the only Williams Thunderball on location anywhere, etc. Some Stern LEs like TRON Legacy, a Hercules... and their arcade titles are equally impressive - Discs of TRON Environmental, Omega Race cockpit, lots of rare cabaret games, etc. Unfortunately the owner is a real jackass and it makes it hard for me to want to spend money there even though my wife's family lives in the area and we're usually out there at least once a year.

    Quoted from GWalton:

    They are everywhere and pinball is HUGE!

    It really is amazing. The other day I was on the Stern site and tried out their pin locator, didn't realize half the bars in Lancaster city now have a new Stern or two on location. When I lived down there, Laserdome was pretty much the only place with new Sterns and then some stray 90's pins here and there (Hurricane at a dive bar in Lititz, Junkyard at a bowling alley in Mt. Joy, that sort of thing). My wife works in New Holland and she and some of her co-workers go to Shooter's Crossing after work, now her co-workers are regularly texting her their best scores on whatever new Stern they have (so far: Mustang, Aerosmith, Walking Dead, Star Wars, now Deadpool I think) and one of them has started hitting bars on her drive home that have pins. Shit is live!

    That’s just ridiculous. And I know Joe pretty well, he bought a MSF off me a few years ago. Good guy and knows his shit. We keep in touch.

    The more I read Gofundme’s responses to customer inquiries, the more it’s starting to annoy me. He knows all...but can’t rebuild friggin flippers, which is easy as hell. What a joke.

    Steven said so, you can't find another collection ANYWHERE like the A++ collection at Gameseum.

    Plus I see a game that appears to be turned off in one of those pictures. They must not have an owner who's an experienced tech on site to fix the games immediately.

    Quoted from emkay:

    I used to work at the cream cheese factory back in the 90s. I'm guessing that's the same place I used to go to after work only back then I think it was called RR Trax.

    Also Pinball PA has a whole bunch of arcade games I've never seen anywhere else in this day. I pooped my pants when I saw a working Tazz-Mania. Love that game.
