    Another thing to consider is the voltage is 110 like the US, but the outlet is round pegs, so you need an adapter or a US power supply.

    I only think the NES classic falls short of expectations for me, only 18 games the Atari flashback portable gives me way more options. And I can take it with me.

    To be honest what a burger is not that good for me. There are so many options, particularly when it goes to burger joints, but they do periodically have an A1 burger that is good. I do like their shakes. But so much fast food to choose from.

    Taco Cabana is all over Houston too.   In my wilder days, this was the goto place at 2am when the bars closed down.   (its 24 hours)
    Not GREAT Tex-Mex, but a significant step up from fast food.

    No chicken express here yet. Anyway since we are talking about food places. Steak and shake has good shakes, and chilli in my humble opinion. Brings me to childhood every time I go there. I found some decent places (local chains) here in San Antonio. If you ever get a chance to come here, please check out these guys. They're affordable and for your money, worth it. Yes, there are some really good stuff out there as well, but these are more affordable. Bill Miller's BBQ, a good selection and won't break the bank. There are two Mexican chains that are also good, Las Palapas and Taco Cabana, some very good budget friendly Mexican food. I got some other great restaurants here, but for what you paying, very good stuff.

    Bushes chicken is WAAAY better than raising canes. Even the tea is better. Also, in and out is better than what a burger.

    The only thing closest to what you described that I've seen was at Internet cafes, mostly overseas where I saw them. South Korea, Japan, Indonesia and of all places, United Arab Emerites. Late 90s mostly, but I saw one about 5 years ago in Panama. They also had a giant Dungeons and dragons type game room. They're usually in a mall or western type market place.

    It seems like when I've discussed this concept with people, it's something they've never seen or heard of, so I thought I would mention it here and get some feedback.
     
    In the early 90's (like 90-93 or so) there were two different places in my area that I like to call console arcades. They would have tables setup with TV's and a console next to each, and walls of games just like a rental store (and would sometimes allow rental of the games on display). You would pay by the hour, and you could pick any game you wanted to play off the wall, trade the box with the attendant for the game, then take the game, slap it into the console, and play it until you wanted a different game. Both of these places had the NES, the Genesis, Master System, Turbografx 16, and SNES.
     
    I loved this concept because it allowed me to experience so many different games and systems that I knew about from magazines, but couldn't afford and that friends didn't have. Alex Kidd on the SMS; played it on a power base converter at one of these places, and I had never seen or played any SMS stuff before that. The TG-16; something I always wanted when I saw it on the pages of EGM, but would have never had the chance to play had it not been for these console arcades.
     
    So my question is, was this just some sort of unique phenomenon to my neck of the woods? I did live in a fairly rural county in mid-Michigan, so I think that may be why the owners of these places thought the market was there for this concept. Eventually the two of these arcades went out of business, and I've never seen anything like them since. Just curious if anyone else has seen anything like this?

    I saw this today, it's called the slocum tracker. You can make your own soundtrack and sounds without having to get into assembly language to much. A great little tool for homebrew or just messing around with.
