General Arcade / Exa Arcadia Impressions (Debuted CAX 2018)
« Last post by MrJBRPG on June 20, 2019, 09:06:20 am »
Last year, Exa Arcadia has debuted their upcoming titles in CAX 2018, and there were 7 games playable, with each game being on a cabinet, some 1p and other 2p.

For those who do not know, Exa Arcadia bills itself as a successor to Neo Geo as it can store up to 4 game cartridges, plus with new modern features like optional internet connection, integrated ads, and more. The big selling point is that all games made for the arcade must have exclusive content or noticeable differences not available for home or mobile entries.

Official website:

The titles demonstrated in CAX 2018:

Aka & Blue Type R (1P)
Super Hydorah AC (2P)
Strania EX (2P)
Infinos EXA (1P)
Cosmic Digger (2P) - Full game release should support up to 4 players
Valkyrus EXA (1P) - Title now Changed to Akyrios EXA
Kung Fu Vs Karate Champs (2P)

We have yet to know the release date for the upcoming arcade platform. Exa Arcadia has a twitter account for updates:

When I attended the Exa Arcadia booth last year, I am impressed that several games were well-tuned to harder settings with changes that warrant to be distinct form the home counterparts. Feedback seems to be positive from those who attended the presentation about Fall of Japanese Arcade and Rise of Exa Arcadia. I do hope they make an appearance for some CAX events for new announcements and play-tests.

As a small bonus, they also showcased the unreleased prototype of Sega Sonic Bros, a color match game that you clear by filling an area with same color.

Lucky you to make a post because I have quite a few to share. Where I live in the SF and East Bay Area California, there are a bunch of good arcades to visit. My most favorite ones are High Scores Arcade (Hayward and Alameda) and Emporium, with the former being all ages with hours or all day pass and the latter being 21+ with drinks and games to play by tokens (25 cents per token). I enjoy both of these locations due to diverse game lineups and the majority of them are multiplayer friendly. The more decent options 7th West and Brewcade because while they do have a decent selection of games not as common compared to the 1980's, I sometimes get annoyed trying to select a game for at least 1 minute from a multi-cade machine. My least favorite arcade place might be Round 1 from Concord and San Jose mostly because it is more of mixed amusement with small video arcade section with one player cabinets, and I am not much of a fighting game fan. I tried a bit of Gunslinger Stratos in tutorial mission, but one of the left digital stick click buttons was broken, making the super-charge move impossible. I want to enjoy Round 1 more, but better being with friends than being alone.

Last year, I relied on a trip planner and I would say that the earliest to arrive is between 9:30 and 9:45am so you can have some waiting time and legroom to to confirm your pass and get your name tag. All of us got to wait in line when the preregistered users enter at 10am, and that usually lasts 5 minutes or if being further away from the main doors.
