So as you hopefully know by now, we are officially open! Our grand opening was a huge success and we were astonished to see the huge crowd gathered on Friday. This deserves a huge “Thank you!” both to everybody who helped this place manifest, and more importantly, to the arcade lovers that came from all over Texas just to visit us.
This is one favor I’d like to ask of all of you: a lot of fantastic pictures and videos were taken Friday and Saturday; lots of them with real, professional cameras and not our dinky point-and-shooter. We’d like to use these pictures to update our site/use for fliers and whatnot, so if there’s anything you can share, please send a copy over to info(at)arcadeufo.com.
Issues and Suggestions
We opened with more out-of-order machines than we’d have liked, but think that it was worth it to give everyone a chance to play Street Fighter 4 while it’s brand-spankin’-new. Other titles that are under repair and will be ready soon are:
Arcana Heart 2 (ETA: 2 weeks)
DoDonPachi (ETA: 2 weeks)
Time Crisis 4 (ETA: 1 week)
In the Groove 2 was also experiencing some issues, but that -should- be taken care of now. We worked on it Saturday night a bit, and it was working perfectly up until close. We’ll keep you updated on the status here!
Once these titles are taken care of, we should be at 100% functionality. We’re also working on installing pad ports for both Tekken 6 and Street Fighter 4, which will allow you to use your own controller from home for those of you who haven’t yet mastered the Japanese ball-top joysticks.
There have been a lot of awesome suggestions already, and we’re aiming to keep aUFO constantly improving. Meanwhile, if there’s anything you think we missed, send a shout-out to info(at)arcadeufo.com and feel free to elaborate.
Feels good to say “see you at the arcade” again, doesn’t it?
