This place literally just opened up this week. So far what they have is:

-Two DS Disney's Rave machines
-DDR X on an upgrade cab
-Three ITG 2 machines all non-r21/non-hacked at the moment. Two are brand new while the third is from the '05 Nationals.
-Taiko Drum Master 12
-GF/DM V6
(Not sure about other games, this is what has been reported and i'll be checking the place out later this week)


The owner has also shown interest in allowing the ITG to be hacked, adding pop'n, IIDX, and possibly Technika and PIU to the arcade, and for hosting tournaments.

Hours:
-Sun/Mon: 11am-7pm
-Tues: Closed
-Weds/Thurs: 11am-7pm
-Fri/Sat: 10am-9pm

Location:
Intersection is Flamingo and Sandhill. I'll get the exact address later this week.

Pics:









(thanks to darclion and bacon for the pics even though neither of them post here lol)

That's a lot of dancing games and a whole lot of nothing else.

I can't see this arcade lasting too long, tbh.

why would you need sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many dancing games jesus christ

But at least there'll be a good place to play ITG in the future, whenever I go into Vegas again, if this place DOES last.

Oh, yeah, didn't see that before haha. I assumed it was at LEAST open until midnight. But SEVEN? I usually didn't even go out until 9 or 10 most nights. Then again, the arcade I went to stayed open until 3 AM in the summer. I guess I'd have to plan for a DAY at the arcade if I went to Vegas again instead of a NIGHT at the arcade - which is usually preferable if I'd be there with friends, since they'd probably all rather go gamble later in the night, and I'd be the one going to the arcade.

That's a good point though, I guess some people would rather be at a Casino or something later in the night being in Vegas, though maybe not the same crowd as arcade players. I only spend about an hour at the Blackjack tables before leaving the casino myself.

Keep in mind this place just opened, and the owner really has no knowledge of the whole music game scene. A few of the locals have met with the owner and are discussing adding other music games like i've said and the owner is showing interest. If anything happens i'll give an update.

Inform him that there really is no money in music games and if he wants the arcade to succeed as a business he's gonna need some classic cabs (Ultracade works) and redemption games.

Don't get me wrong, I like the drive and the enthusiasm he's showing for the music game genre, but there's no money in it in the states.

There are other games, but these are just what I know of at the moment from a friend. I'll be checking it out tomorrow and see what else they have.

I really hope he can survive in the industry. I like the layout of the floorspace from the pics.

Haha this makes me wish I was going to Evolution so I could just go hang out here the whole time and miss the tournament. Jeez, I wonder how much it would cost for a trip to Vegas... probably too much.

lmao why

I would definitely like to hear about what other non-music games they have. Don't think I would have the time to make it out there during EVO, but it would be nice to know

So yeah update. Gemini has pop'n 17 now. On Free play until this Saturday when the Coin slot is fixed then it'll be 50c a game. We have the IIDX cabinet but Sirius won't be working till this Saturday as well. It'll be 75 a game.

Also there's a website and facebook page if you're interested in photos and game listings. Next on the priority list is fighting games since we have the IIDX and pop'n now.

As for the state of the arcade, its not going anywhere for a couple years and has a fairly decent local crowd of regulars.

There are also plans for a new year's tournament, where IIDX is planned to have a tournament along with ITG/DDR, whatever fighters are available, and possibly pop'n and GFDM.

He'll most likely be there sometime this weekend. He's been trying to get back into IIDX.

Sirius is running now. There is a slight problem that has been discovered on some songs (mostly older songs) that cause audio drifting but is probably to blame on the monitor (which might be replaced soon).

Also Local e-amuse support is supposed to be configured soon as well.
