2022.01.25 02:05 Digi_Punk The current home arcade landscape through the eyes of a standing 20+ year Neo-Geo.com poster

This is a post a made to Neo-Geo.com, where I am a standing 20+ year member. Disclaimer: it is written with that audience in mind. My name is GregN. on Neo-Geo.com
The Home Arcade movement summed up 1-24-22
I know arcade 1up gets trashed on here. OG cabs are entirely different. 30-40 year old parts and PCBs to track down. Power hogs. Electronics knowledge. Outdated monitors. I get it. You're preserving a piece of history, and that's important, and I respect the hell out of it. But for all practical purposes here and now, home arcades fits my needs better. I run my entire arcade on less energy than 2 old light bulbs. And it may not be truly authentic, but you get the same form factor feel. It's a mass-market money grab, as far as arcade 1up in concerned, but they're getting there. iiRcade and Atgames are another story. No one has attempted this before really. They've only been around for 4 years, give them a break. They have niche stuff we like such as Golden Axe and Burgertime. Most of the good stuff is bought direct from 1up or from Best Buy, Target, Gamestop, or the far reaches of the Internet. Walmart is the high-profile place that gets all the press, but there is much more out there.
1up is basically functional Chinese furniture made as cheaply as possible. They get lots of things wrong, but the look and feel they nail most of the time, and that's a big part of the games we grew up with. Their customer service is much better than it used to be, with tickets resolved in less than a week. It's pretty ambitious doing what they're attempting. They're getting closer to full size with Tron, Big Blue, KI and the Pro line. They want to be a mass market company, but their Target audience is 35-50 year olds. And I think it's just unrealistic. They might get Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, or Pac Man in people's homes, but that's the most people will pay the now $700 prices for.
iiRcade is another story entirely. It caters to the niche with companies on board like IREM, Toplan, Data East, SNK, Taito, Sega, and modern retro games with companies like Dot EMU and Hero Concept. It's more of a cab for hardcore elder gamers like us. It has the classics like Double Dragon, Dragons Lair, Elevator Action, Rastan, Burgertime. It brings arcades to the modern age with downloadable content for all games, leaderboards, and soon, online play. One of the highlights for me is playing Mayhem Brawler standing up in the arcade elbow to elbow with a friend. It's a completely different experience standing along side your friend than sitting at your computer on Steam or on your couch on the Xbox, PS4 or Switch. They're selling nostalgia, pure and simple. Form Factor makes a difference to those of us who grew up in arcades. At least it does to me. How it is played is just as important as what is being played. Atgames is an interesting one. More of an engineering company than anything else. They are completely open for engineers to play with. We are their guinea pigs, with mixed results. The Atgames Legends Ultimate (ALU) is a commercial multicade that has some stuff pre-loaded, like Metal Slug. But they got it right putting spinners and a Trackball on it. It even has a swappable 4 player control deck as on option coming soon. Because of COVID and shortages, they are backed up and still feeling their way. I think they're off to a good start, they've only made home arcade stuff since about the same time as arcade 1up. They've been in the couch emulation space sure, but this is a new avenue, as it's pretty a ambitious thing to do a commercial multicade. Some make question the legality of COINOPS-X and the lack of licensing, that's up to you. Their build quality is overall better than 1up. Sure, they have quality issues, but when it works, it works well. I don't personally have an ALU because I have a something else that does the job, but a friend has one and I am throughly impressed with it, especially at the $500-600 price point. Its sold online mostly, but you can buy it boots-on-the-ground at Sams Club. Virtual pinball has been around for years, mainly by groups of avid enthusiasts who are self-supporting. It was a bold move for AtGames and Arcade 1up to get into virtual pinball as a viable commercial product. But when the Atgames Legends Pinball (ALP) was released to a select few pre-orders at the beginning of 2021, it was a revolution. Sure, Toyshock did it first, but with limited results. Atgames was more ambitious, essentially releasing a $3500+ product for $700-850. The games weren't top tier like their competition, but it didn't have to be. Where as arcade 1up pinball achieved quality in terms of games, snagging licenses to 3 of the top rated pinball titles of all time, Atgames ALP has better parts, better build quality, online features, and quantity of games. They didn't get the WIlliams/Bally/Marvel license, but they got quantity, striking a deal with Gottlieb. New comers to the virtual pinball game Magic Pixel, similar but smaller and lesser known than Zen studios, showed up on the scene, and really brought out the dormant Italian Zaccaria licenses with remakes of EM, SS, 90s, and even modern updates to pinball . Add Taito to the mix with all new games/tables built from scratch, and you have a surprise hit in the ALP. TInkerers who want to hook up a decent PC to the ALP have full access to the virtual pinball world with some elbow grease and about $700 for a special VIBS board and a decent PC. I'd go into UNICO and the MVSX, but there's plenty of info about that here I need not repeat about it. All I can say is I've played one at a friends place, and I was impressed by what I saw, especially compared to arcade 1up. I've played, bought, sold, traded, and maintained these machines first hand at my own home or friends places. Not a demo 4 years ago at Walmart, not by solely watching Youtube videos, but by playing games side-to-side with with friends and family. Like it or not, the future of Arcades will be in peoples homes, not bars, not bowling alleys, not arcades, not Dave and Busters, and I believe the future looks bright indeed.

2022.01.25 02:05 musick23 Lineage 1 Private Server play & enjoy!

http://www.linepoch.com/
https://discord.gg/Xmd9ah3ddT
First and foremost thanks for promoting the small community we have on Lineage Epoch. I am not affiliated with the server owner, in any position of power whether moderator or admin. I am simply a player that has been playing LIn Epoch off and on for sometime and I really enjoy it.
The owner (Gm Billionaire) is a silent one in that he doesnt get involve with the server in anyway. Other than to ban cheaters and handle the regular maintenance requirements. I appreciate this style out of the owner considering some of the storeies I have heard about on other servers and how their admin handles things.
The rares are tolerable for anyone that was used to the grind we had on official, the different rates are as follows: XP = X8, Karama = X8, Aden = X8, Item Drops X3.
The Max amount of Elixirs that can be used = 15. The max stat you choose is 45.
Candle's can be bought at Kent Pot Shop for 23M, any elixirs used prior to using the candle NPC will be returned in the form of 60M per elixir.
Some in game commands that can be used are the following: -help, -warp 1-11, -pbuff lvl 1-51, -buff 52+, -dmg on/off.
Custom shops to be aware of are the following: NPC orc below Pandora sells bundles of accessory enchants and elemental enchants etc. NPC Melissa in Aden sells teleport scrolls, NPC Cole in Oren sells magic books, NPC Oren Pot Shop sells dragon blood (extra brave all classes), special storage key, mushroom food (DR & XP), NPC oren Weapon Shop sells quest items, NPC Giran Pot Shop sells lvl 1-3 blank scrolls.

2022.01.25 02:05 Rozez Best weighted plastic chess set? Looking for recs

In the market for both a nice plastic and wooden set, but I figured I'd start with a plastic set. Ideally this would be useful for travel/casual play, and even though I don't really enter tournaments or anything, it wouldn't really hurt if it were weighted and had tournament specs either. For that, I'm looking at the Best Chess Set Ever even though I don't really care for it's silly name/marketing or the additional items outside of board, bag, and pieces. Any insight on this one or any other recommendations?

2022.01.25 02:05 RockoFan1991 30 [M4F] Real man looking for real woman for FWB dynamic

Cutting straight to the chase my name is Larry, I’m 30 years old, in good shape and looking for a athletic/HWP woman to have a fun and consistent FWB situation with. I’m a real guy looking for a real woman; not a sex worker or couples.
Overall, I’d probably describe myself as a goofy jack of all trades kinda guy. I enjoy a good mix of the outdoors, spontaneity, trying new things, but also making time for my lazy movie days. I get along and vibe best with those who have a fun sense of humor and know how to be silly. Lately I’ve also been really into cooking, hiking and fitness.

Ideally we can chat for a little bit on Reddit beforehand then meetup for some food or drinks to vibe check.
If I sound like someone you’d be interested in getting to know, please message me with a little about yourself and what your favorite food is. Messages with only “hey” probably won’t do so well with me. Effort and common courtesy are sexy. 😌
I am not interested in sex workers. Please do not message me.

there’s no guarantee that CC units will be held strictly in person right? there’s also a surge of cases in NSW so do you guys reckon that a lot of classes might just end up being in person?
