Title: chrischris is AWESOME!!!!
Post by: Alpha1 on March 26, 2011, 01:26:17 PM
This guy is truly a Space Ace  :spaceace:

He knew I was interested in a game, and not only did he go and see the machine for me, he then without me asking PAID FOR IT and brought it back to his house as to ensure it was mine.

This is truly an amazing gift of friendship for an arcade forum!!

I want to publicly thank him and state that any machines he see's in the UK I will gladly store for him until he can arrange shipping.

Thanks again man - YOU ROCK!!

Oliver

Well, I guess he gives an hint :

Even more than arcade lifestyle this is all about DLFer lifestyle!

So I would say, a DL/DL2 or SA cabinet  ::) ?

Which will be a part of my UK roadtrip and will happen next friday...
I'm already naming it officially "THE BIG (april fish) CATCH".
Stay tuned, I'm really excited about this one  ;)

To translate April Fish= April Fool (for some reason the French (speaking) have a fish incorporated in their april jokes/fools tradition.

Smells fishy to me ! :)

have a great trip, chris, i'm anxious to find out what you're bringing back.

regarding that balloon bomber, i like the object of the game: You control a tank that shoots at balloons. :P

Post by: Q*ris on March 31, 2011, 09:49:12 PM
Thanks all!
Unfortunately still some crazy deadlines for work to meet tonight, so it won't be a full night sleep  :-[
...but I have a great wingman with me tomorrow so I will sleep in the trunk, holding that balloon bomber tight  ;)

Love the art and shape of the cabinet. Don't know if i would like the gameplay..

Title: Re: chrischris is AWESOME!!!!
Post by: Alpha1 on April 01, 2011, 01:23:01 PM
I'm not too bothered about the gameplay on this one. The game just needed saving as it's so rare.
Title: Re: chrischris is AWESOME!!!!
Post by: gyruss on April 01, 2011, 01:45:06 PM
True, i was thinking about buying it too (for a moment), but it's in the right hands now.

Still need a taito cab eventually, they are beautiful!

Do you have some pictures from your other taito cabinets??
Title: Re: chrischris is AWESOME!!!!
Post by: Alpha1 on April 01, 2011, 05:40:28 PM
I'll post some in the next few days.

Great looking marque/bezel combo!

Post by: Belike on April 02, 2011, 07:04:35 PM

I also saw the 3rd one somewhere, but I couldn't remember. :-\

You're almost there, you recognized them all but got the Joust wrong.
Here's another one from the same cab to help you guess:
