He seems to be responding to inquiries about specific areas, so I sent him a PM.

Wait, the guy officially said that our D&B is NOT going to get a new DDR cab?

Sadly, this does not surprise me. The Indianapolis location has practically nothing of value there for anybody as it's essentially the same as every place that has an "arcade" in this area. The only way that is going to change is if enough people make their voices heard on it and I don't see that happening.

Anyone want to bet how much longer our D&B will be open? Merk, set a line. I'll take the under.

I shouldn't be that mean. I actually like D&B. It's just that the last several times I was there, there wasn't anything I actually wanted to do. At least their food got better.

Despite the fact that the arcade is garbo to us arcade aficionados I think they still do good business and make a lot of money off randos.

Indeed! You can shoot basketball, throw some ski-ball, win tickets playing big versions of popular mobile games, drink beer/cocktails, and eat some pretty good food. I think they have their market pretty well figured out, and unfortunately that market doesn't include most of the arcade games we're into.

Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.

I guess. But I've rarely seen it particularly busy over there. Although I admit I haven't been there in several months at this point. And maybe I was just going at off times?

Don't get me wrong. I'm not hoping for their failure. I'd love to see them stick around.

Maybe they'll roll out more machines if this rollout goes well.

Or maybe Latitude 360 gets bought out by Round1

I have gone there recently and unfortunately it was like a morgue there. Kinda sad to see as I did enjoy playing pump there when it worked. I sincerely hope that it will be revitalized in the future instead of the steady decline to closure that I have often seen with locations that have squandered potential.

Are you talking about D&B or Latitude? Because if it's Latitude then Pump not working there is new to me.
