^Looks nice!

I finally got my Stargate up and running, a week or two ago. Still troubleshooting a sound issue, and will have to do some monitor work.

Things should be a lot simpler with units like yours using LCD monitors.

If I had one of those, I would never get anything done, plus I would be divorced. I played the heck out of MK II back in the day.

My WM has as stack of these and I almost bought it but I know I will buy it and it will be primarily to impress people who come to my house and not for me to play it beyond the initial few days of owning it. Like almost everything else I own, lol.

I know what you mean. As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I have a Raspberry Pi with 1000's of games that just collects dust, lol... I would love to have a Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and possibly NBA Jam lined up next to each other. That would be my junior high self's wet dream! They probably wouldn't get played that often though.

Re: Arcade 1UP

Some of the Walmart stores have a couple of the Arcade1Up cabinets on clearance for $75 (YMMV).

I was able to find the Asteroids cabinet, but not the Centipede cabinet. Brickseek shows one, but the store couldn't find it. The next closest store still has it selling for $150.

Oh man, the walmart closest to me has Centipede for $75 - that is highly tempting.

Did you get them to check in the back? They are really bad about getting these out on the sales floor.

Whew. That Marvel may be the one. I spent countless quarters on those 3 games.

If only it had 4 sticks and X-Men, but i could see that getting a solo release.

Re: Arcade 1UP

^^ I don't know about that though. I have the Asteroids machine and like others have said it is a compact size. Fitting 4 people around looking at the screen would feel pretty cramped IMO.

As expensive as these are, it seems like a waste since you're only getting three or four games. They should have sold a vanilla cabinet as the main piece of hardware and then had the different game bundles as swappable cartridges or something. If these become more popular, I wonder if they'll do something like that? There's a couple I want, but I'm not dropping $300 a piece on them.

Edit: I looked at 1UP's site and it looks like you can the purchase the boards that contain the other game bundles, as well as the controller decks, so they are somewhat modular. Although, the FAQ says you can't modify the machines, but they might mean hacking to add other ROMS.

Re: Arcade 1UP

These things are cool. But I just have a feeling that if I got one, it would be used for about a weekend and then collect dust.

Same here. I've had the SF and MK cabinets in my shopping cart a few times each and I haven't pulled the trigger for that reason.

Re: Arcade 1UP

I got one ($75 at Walmart) specifically to put a Raspberry Pi in, not for the few games it stocked. Even then, it will probably end up as a dust collector at some point.

Yes, I wish these would be released on current gaming consoles.

If Karate Champ had the Burgertime artwork I would have bought it immediately. I’ve been looking for a reasonably priced original one for a while.

Yeah Iím inclined to agree. Although I do have to say out of the ones theyíve released/announced to date that Turtles one is damn tempting.

Re: Arcade 1UP

Man the Turtles one is so tempting I can't see myself passing. I want the Final Fight, Mortal Kombat and Turtles one badly. The Marvel one I'm on the fence with. I never really played the Marvel fighting games but I would love to have the arcade version of Punisher. If the Marvel cabinet had Spiderman, Punisher and X-Men I would have bought it in a heartbeat.

Re: Arcade 1UP

Turtles is awesome. But I feel like I would be much more likely to replay something like Pac-Man or Burger Time or a fighting game over and over again than a side scrolling brawler where it’s easy to reach the end due to unlimited credits. After beating it there’s not a ton of replay other than going back through to do it with a different character.. I’m content playing it on my 360 every few years.

I am about to get a full size Frogger machine for my office. I’ve been playing that at my grandparents/parents house the last 20+ years, so I know the replay value holds up.
