I Finally Got a Cabinet

Posted in About Matskat, Game News, Random Shit with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2010 by Mat$kat

It’s the top brick in the pyramid of gaming addiction.

It’s the height of geekness.

Today I got a SEGA  Aero City candy cabinet. Candy cabinets are sit-down Japanese style machines – usually found in rows inside a Japanese game center.

Crazy story, I posted a “want to buy” on Craigslist – 30 seconds later I get a tip from a random dude to check out the forums over at Aracde Museum. 24 hours later I have the object of my desire.

It has the original Capcom Street Fighter II board in it currently, but after I clean it up and do a little restoration, it’s gonna be a dedicated shooter cabinet. The monitor looks FANTASTIC! I cannot believe that this thing is in as good of shape as it is. Everything works 100%. Buttons and sticks are a little grimy, and will soon be replaced, and the vinyl overlay on the control panel is old and cracked – another easy fix.

My wife is gonna move in with the bleach soon 🙂 That should take care of the 25 years of cigarette smoke that gives it a slight beige hue.

Now with the Pictures…

Street Fighter vs. Tekken !!!??1!?!??

Posted in Game News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 2, 2010 by Mat$kat

That’s right folks…that’s “STREET FIGHTER VS. TEKKEN” you see typed right there above.

After years of these two fighting franchises spawning several games each, soon we’ll be able to settle grudge matches with titles like “Ryu vs. Law” and “Yoshmitsu vs. Chun Li”.

At the 2010 EVO Fighting Championships, in Las Vegas, sever lucky attendees got the chance to watch a teaser video – sending waves of hype through the fighting community.

For years, Capcom’s “Vs.” series of games, starting with Street Fighter vs. X-Men (and currently, with the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 3) has wowed audiences of the genre, and spawned several other “Vs.” games, most recently Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

But…this isn’t the first time that Capcom has taken the “Vs.” series not just across franchises, but across DEVELOPERS. Lest we not forget about Capcom’s fantastic “Capcom vs. SNK” series.

Players have a lot to look forward to, and to imagine as all the info we have is a few camera shots, and a teaser\trailer.

Of course, I’ve includes these below.

Check ’em out, and get excited…I know I am.
