    Quoted from RWH:

    Steven is the project I'm just wondering how Todd figures to restore his personality.

    You ever see Todd's work up close? He isn't restoring anything.

    #3552 50 days ago

    When Todd said in his video to Steven, "You need money" I almost fell out of my chair.

    Boob, a picture is worth a thousand words (unless you are a post by Otaku) May we see this glorious new "stair climber"??

    #3553 50 days ago

    I think Todd feels sorry for him and gave him a JOB. Any video without the one twin is a good day...LOL.

    They are blowing out so much in these best offer sales....years of stuff....good for them. I tried to buy a few items..

    #3554 50 days ago

    Don't get it - maybe he's an Illegitimate son ?

    Later this week once I get the plaque put on. (They said it would be ready Friday. They lied.) I'll be proud to show you what you all chipped in to help buy. I think it's funny that gorillabiscuits posted a picture of the famous Otaku Escalera. He should get a plaque put on, too.

    quick question, computer gurus. I blocked Oataku a long time ago, all his shill accounts are also blocked so I cannot read his bullshit. Does Pinside recognize and IP address?

    Yes. That helps find multiple accounts.

    I am not sure what happened, but a friend of mine drove by a couple times today just before noon as he was running errands. He reported that there in fact was not a line of people waiting to get in on the busiest day of the week. I am sure there will be a rally into the evening though.

    #3568 49 days ago
    Quoted from Flowst:

    Mr.Steven blesses all with his presence in the recent TNT video release (towards the end).

    At the 37 mark, where he asks Todd to pay for dinner at Applebee's!

    Boob i'll take an upvote. I think it may actually be my first.

    Quoted from La4s:

    Oof. I have had many a TNT game go through my garage and I agree. They do good board work but their paint touch ups...geez.

    There was a new post on Facebook today about new games/pins that were just added or in the pipeline. I find it interesting that he didn't have the money available to buy Randy a new Escalera, but seems to have money to keep buying games. What a shyster.

    #3573 49 days ago
    Quoted from La4s:

    the same goes for pin rescue. they do crappy work. had a few pass through and they were barley shopped. i even saw one em that was on free play with paper fold between contacts on the replay switch.

    Blown out crap is probably way cheaper than an Escalera.

    Would that make the weekends even quieter ? Or perspective. Two people in there looks packed compared to empty ?

    Listing new games coming for future attractions is a tried and true strategy for getting more business, but honestly in this environment I think its probably not that effective except for his handcore audience. The real problem for all of us is what advertising strategy actually works here ? I don't think anyone really knows for sure. It would seem perhaps the best strategy is batten down the hatches and try and ride it out rather than put up the main sail. If he is actively spending money on putting new games into the arcade at this point and time, I largely suspect its a fools errand to do so. Keep what you got on the floor as best you can and let it ride. But doubt he is terribly open to anyone's suggestion. Perhaps suspect a go fund me is all that is needed to make up any shortfall in revenue versus repairs.

    Quoted from pookycade:

    I've always found it better to get it on the floor, up and running. Then blast social media. Or now days on Facebook and Pinside a simple anybody want to come help set it up ? I can wrestle them around like I could 40 years ago.

    Things can come up. And customers looking forward to it are disappointed. Or might seek it elsewhere. Then all you've accomplished is promoting your competition.

    After having made this mistake several times with the exact scenario you have described, we don't advertise it until its been on the floor a few weeks and shown itself to stay functional.

    #3579 49 days ago

    Why do all you old people keep talking on here like any of you have ANY experience in the industry or on running a business/arcade/route/etc.?

    What's next; people are going to try to know better in the fields of law or medicine?

    You all need to go get REAL jobs.....like running an uninformative, non educational, display and decor free 'museum'.

    Or hand outs; hand outs are main stream, and big business I hear...read it on social media somewhere...

    Going out on a limb here, but Mr.Steven has a bad case of collector's bug. He has no room for anything else, and can afford even less.

    My home set up is 5 short of filled, yet my wish-list has 33 to go! I could be tempted to add garbage games.

    But if Steven has an arcade, well then it is "business".

    Seeing that bargain basement pin he just (bought), highly doubtful that will be the defining moment of gameseum.

    Gameseum is the bestest arcade in the whole world! He’s carefully selected only the bestest games from the local dumps and put all together to create “The Mega arcade and Museum” at a cost of only $50.

    Quoted from edward472:

    ...except that it looks like he's got nearly a hundred examples of blown out crap. I like the part of the video where he's boasting about having multiples of all these games. Must be nice. I only had one new Escalera. (But I've got another one now, thankyouverymuch!!!)

    Exactly. He has more than enough games for his arcade / to take care of and yet he continues to buy stuff where he could have bought an escalera...

    Or saved it so as not to open more gofundme stuff next time bills are short...

    On that note....do you think the people that did donate some to his last gofundme believed they were helping an in need business for rent/utilites? Or do you believe they thought the money would be used to allow a guy to just buy more toys and call them business items (without selling any)?

    NOPE.....I don't continue to see a trend here at all

    Yes. But at $5 each, minus the ones he was paid to haul away. Is still way short of a new Escalara for the Boob !

    Shut his doors, start a GoFundMe and place the “tip jar” back at the coffee shop and Bingo....it’s profitable again!

    #3594 49 days ago

    Here's the real question, did Todd actually pay for the boobs parts as a favor to his new found bestie?

    #3595 49 days ago

    I doubt he is a legit non-profit.

    I’ve got one of their games in my collection. Purchased from some wealthy guy in Macon, Ga. Admitted he payed way too much. Wound up replacing the playfield with a Wade Krause. It did come with a nice key chain!

    Ya see that’s where you made your mistake. You expected Steven to pay to fix your new Escalera. What you SHOULD have done was offer to sell him the broken down crappy Escalera he returned to you. I hear he likes that stuff best. Wouldn’t be surprised if on receipt of a new game it’s time to whip out the sand paper and scuff it up so it’s more cohesive.
