Welcome to Arcade UFO, the only Japanese-style Game Center in Texas!
Our goal is to bring you the newest and most interesting arcade titles from Japan, Korea, the USA and other countries while providing a haven for the fighting game, music game and racing game communities.
At the same time, we respect the origin of arcades and always try to feature a few great classic games with our limited space.
We opened Arcade UFO to follow in the footsteps of the legendary Einstein's Arcade (R.I.P.). Our goal is to continue Austin's 20+ year tradition of community-based video arcades.
We welcome gamers of all ages! Alcoholic beverages are not served nor allowed for consumption at the arcade.
RANBAT TOURNAMENT SERIES SEASON 7
Running from Sunday, August 26th until Sunday, Oct 28th, 2012! $2 entry, Live Stream and Prizes!
After much anticipation and countless hours of work,
Both Arcana Heart 2 and Time Crisis 4 are in operation and ready for your enjoyment!
We thought the default 3 lives on Time Crisis 4 was a little harsh, so we turned it up to 4 lives per credit. With one credit on each side, a couple of us were able to get through the prologue and about 1/4th of the first stage . . . definitely going to need some practice before we can go for a 1-credit clear.
Arcana Heart 2 is set to best of 3 rounds and is in head-to-head mode. We had to borrow a wiring harness from the head-to-head 3rd Strike cabinet to get it going, so we’ll have to rewire that 3rd Strike later in the week but I should be able to knock it out this Thursday or Friday.
We don’t have the move lists pasted on the machine yet, so if it’s your first time, be sure to check out a move list online. Examu has it on their page in PDF format here:
Phew! It’s been a busy first two weeks, and we’ve still got a lot to do . . . but it’s all coming along nicely. We’ve completed installation of the pad ports on Tekken 6, which allow you to use any PS1 or PS2 controller rather than the arcade controls. We understand that a lot of Tekken players learned the game at home, so now’s your chance to play your best: no more excuses!
Another thing on a lot of people’s minds are tournaments. Well, we’ve got some planned, and we’re going to make announcements soon with the full details. Are you wondering who the strongest Street Fighter 4 player in Austin is now? Do you want to see how you’ll fare against ATX’s best in tournament play? Maybe you just want some experience to shake off those tournament jitters . . . either way, we think you’ll have the answers to these questions soon.
P.S. Arcana Heart 2 is now on the way back to us from the land of the rising sun, and we’ll update as soon as it’s back in service!
Due to some transportation difficulties, we’re opening a little late today at 3:00PM. We apologize to anyone who tried to or was planning on going earlier. We’re all still adjusting to the new work shifts and Capital Metro changing everything up on us didn’t help!
Thanks for understanding.
