Today we where in the Hommerson Arcade Scheveningen.

Nowdays its called Funland...




Guitar hero the Arcade..
 



Let's Rock !!! 




I thought there where only new games, but what does my eye catch there ?

Yes indeed "Classic Arcade" !  ;D




At closer inspection, its just a converted cabinet with a i-cade 60in1 board connected to a TFT panel..  :-\




Well at least it has classics..

but Wait....


What is that there in the corner ?  ::)




Unfortunately not the original, but the class of 81 reunion edition..




It looks like this has a 25"or bigger monitor inside..



Those where the only classics there, but what do you expect in 2013...

Isn't that a joke..... that side-art doesn't even have a (Namco) copyright notice while this _is_ a Namco released game !

I still wonder why the guys from Phoenixarcade decided to put that Namco copyright on it....

Bela, only a couple of years ago this was still a great arcade and a big one too. It housed 3 pinballs, a full set of the full moving latest version of Outrun (4 cars, 2 players per car), it had that Plane flying simulator game with 3 screens (forgot the name), a couple of HOTD versions, the modern version of AfterBurner Deluxe etc. etc. etc.

They changed location. The original location can be seen in the material that Pieter found (Driester), one of the shots where they go over the HUGE row of cabs is from there.
Now there's a HEMA store there and they moved to a much smaller location one flower lower.

Yes it's still there but to me it lost almost everything that made it great even it's modern-day variant a couple of years ago. I actually asked if they were interested in selling the Ms.Pac/Galaga combo when they were still in the original location and they said: no way ! So I guess it was still a good earner.
