I spent the last few days watching a few arcade auctions. Seems like Minneapolis is pretty saturated with them.

I (reluctantly) passed on a Darkstalkers, a Pole Position and a Neo Geo 1 slot machine, all of which were at or under $150 ea. I'm kind of bummed about the Darkstalkers for two reasons, because I liked the game and the theme, and because it was a CPS2 setup, which means kinda like the NeoGeo I could drop other games in fairly inexpensively and quickly without any rewiring.

I did manage to score a full size Crystal Castles game, with nice sideart and the glowing trackball, etc... for $150. Some of you may remember I had a cabaret sized Crystal Castles a while back but I never could get it to work right, so I sold it (for roughly twice what I paid for it, even nonworking) about a year ago.

The downside is that the ol gameroom is getting a bit full, so I'm a little hard pressed to figure out where this one is going. I can always move some stuff around, because I definitely do not want to stick it in the garage. I'm not sure it would survive the winter.

It would cost me more to buy a PSP and the Darkstalkers game than it would to buy the ACTUAL arcade game!

Arcade auctions...they have such things?! I wish *I* lived in a city that had an actual "population" instead of just a "gathering".
