New arcade coming to Austin, TX – "Arcade UFO"

Shaggy June 30, 2008 3

It seems that I’m not the only ‘crazy’ person who is opening up an arcade out there – a new arcade is in the works in Austin Texas that is also looking to provide an authentically hardcore arcade gaming experience to players and it is called “ArcadeUFO”. The new business is being put together by former employees of the defunct Einstien’s Arcade which shut down earlier this year as the owner decided to move on.

It’s always great to see solid arcade fans setting up an arcade of their own and looking at their game selection, they definently have a good roster of games to choose from, including Tekken 6, Arcana Heart 2, Initial D4, Time Crisis 4, DoDonPachi, Metal Slug 6, Donkey Kong, Ms. Pac-Man & more. They are still working on the space and it should be open soon so if you live in the area, check out their website for more.

    This place have pretty much my ideal mix of games. Most of the different genres are represented. It’s not just lightgun and racing games. He could perhaps do with a couple more things but what he has at the moment is better than 99% of the arcades I’ve been in. It’s a shame there isn’t a place like that near me or I’d spend hours there.

    I spend hours there all the time and the other arcades too when they existed.
