So my two girls, aged 11 and 8, are basically as reckless as any male sons I could want when it comes to two things: slot cars and video games. Specifically, they LOVE the game Rampage (who doesn't?!) and some of the more cherished memories we share involve that game: be it kill-screening the a World Tour console, or making so much joyfully chaotic racket at Expo that you could pick us out of the crowd across the hall
Anyway. After acquiring 5 pins in 18 months, I told them that once I got Firepower finished and running and "out of mind" I'd consider getting an arcade instead of a virtual pin. So now that Firepower is done, it's time to look.
I discovered a "Midway Multicade" of a dozen or so games (including Robotron!) and thought that might be sufficient to scratch the itch, until I realized it is only 2 players. When I asked my kids if that was acceptable they both immediately vetoed with an emphatic "No! You need to play with us dad!"
So while that's kind of awesome, I'm afraid that makes this more difficult. What's the market for this game? How expensive is a 3-player classic Rampage? Any decent 3-player multicades out there?
If anybody has one to part with (reasonable projects are fine! In fact I've been teaching them to solder so this would get them full on-board cred for the geek bus, to work on their own damn arcade game how cool would that be?!) let me know... thank you! They're great kids and much like the trampoline I got them last year, this could be an ultimate "back from summer camp" surprise
(Hope this fits in the "all gameroom" forum, I've seen other vid/cade talk on the site)
