Do you wanna hang out on Thursday? Do you wanna have a sleeeeep over? I got lunch at Fogo on Friday so me being in Indy would be very convenient.

We confirmed that doubles premium is NOT on Supernova as was surmised. Doubles continues to be neglected by everyone who doesn't own their own machine. I'm kind of surprised it took Konami all the way until SN2 to add an option for doubles premium.

Is there any way anyone here can get Daniel to turn down the volume on Pump? If someone is playing DDR and some random tards decide to waste their money on Pump you literally cannot hear a damn thing coming out of the DDR machine. It feels like the Pump speakers are right in your ears. This is anecdotal, but I played Saturday Night Love yesterday while some schmoes were playing Pump and I couldn't even fucking AA it; I usually get 5 greats or less on the song.

Conversely, turning the volume up on Supernova would be just as effective. That shit is quiet as hell. Please placate me.

Pump is down so I was actually able to play Oni courses and not hear

brakakABABRRAKRABABARRBRAKABABRBRABAKABRBRABBRRRAKAKAK *I WANT DIS TO NEVER END* BRAKAKAKAKABRA BRAKA BA BRAKAKAKAKAKAK

in my ears the whole time. The volume on DDR is pretty shitty though and I wonder if they would object to turning it up slightly.

As much as I like pump, this is True Facts. Excellent description Merk... because that's all I hear even when I'm the one playing XD.

So who is the Asian kid that comes in almost every time I am at GXS and stomps around on Pump and asks me what songs I'm playing?

You guys probably already heard this but Daniel confirmed that GXS is closing its doors in May of 2013 on Facebook. Do we want to do something special? GXS is probably the last locally owned arcade that any of us on here go to so it'd be nice to do something to show our appreciation.

Because really Bloomington will have no other DDR cabinet after GXS closes unless you really want to count Lazerlite which may or may not even be open more than 3 days a week now.

From Facebook:

"I have a potential buyer for the arcade games, however there are a few games that they don't need, so if your really are interested in a game, then send me a message, and an offer for the game. If I feel the price is fair, we may have a deal. At this time I am looking at closing the end of January 2012. Here is your chance to get a well maintained dance machine, or Neo-Geo machine."

Riot: Might be worth a contact.

He hasn't listed an asking price. Sounds like the buyer needs to make an offer. DDR and Pump are for sale though.

Let me rephrase - he will not be selling them off for anything less than $5,000.

Riot needs to insultingly lowball him and see where he buckles.

Gambling question for Merk:

In an over/under bet, what happens if the event occurs *on* the line drawn?
