It seems like a good number of the problems with most of the music games have been fixed. Pop'n has a fixed screen, DJMax is actually functional, Taiko has new(?) drums and sticks, and Gitadora has new sticks as well.

I guess they recycled some parts from a Terminator Salvation machine.  You can see the title, mirror-imaged, in the lower left corner of the screen.  (Not actually in the display, but in the black border surrounding it.)
I think that's a reflection from the actual terminator machine opposite the pop'n. The red thing on the lower right of the screen is the top marquee from deadstorm pirates.

GF is no longer fucked up. Well, at least the player 1 side. They are also willing to turn the volume up if you ask. Yay!

DM cymbal is still weak, and the drum throne is wobbly. Bring a magazine or something to level it out. Otherwise it plays fine. I FC'd some hard things, it seems okay.

Pop'n plays well. Volume is nice and loud.

Taiko is giga-fucked, don't bother.

DMX left lower sensor is constantly firing. It's okay if you play center, but doubles is probably out of the question. Sad

Eric (EPS21) and I are heading down to California next week to represent Seattle at Best of the West, the largest music game tournament in this area of the country in this millennium! Big ups to GW for fixing GF after I bugged them about it for literally two years!

used my february $25 coupon to play for a bit today.

extreme's down at the moment.

pop'n's working fine.

taiko's seen way better days.

x2 pads were actually decent for once.  every other time i've tried playing on them, it wouldn't register at all.

I stopped by there and played one game of pop'n.  They fixed it or something, the buttons were perfect.  No sticking, no misfires, just perfect.

Well I had nice couple of chats with the lead tech Richard, and another cool one Ely. Long story short, they worked on the X2 pads a bit, and we got the 2nd unlock code on there! They're still bad but they ordered 32 new sensors for it, so hopefully it'll be playable for a little while after they install those. It's pretty much the fate of the Betson cab for DDRX and X2 though as theyre way worse and cheaper than the old cabinets.

In other news, the headphone jack was broken for a while in T2 but a new replacement mobo is on the way, and the Pop'n buttons are working great now. I'd like to see an ITG cab there someday too since the DDR presence is way over saturated there. If any of you guys feel this way too let em know! I think they'll seriously consider it there's enough demand for it, it could easily replace their SN1 since they have a good working SN2 there already IMO

Its good to know their lead tech and a couple other guys seem to genuinely care for people like us, and they deserve some credit considering all the other machines they have to maintain and fix as well. The story I got though is that some of the other techs are more lazy though, and probably the experience most of you all got when those guys work on pads and stuff there :/

There are plenty of ITG cabs in the area already.  Fiesta EX, on the other hand, is nowhere to be found.

Gonna be in Seattle tomorrow and I believe that the hotel is on the same block as Gameworks, so I'll leave feedback here afterwards.

Edit: DDR X2 was unplayable. DDR X was okay, but the bottom arrow on the right side had a dent that threw me off. DJ Max Technika was awesome and addicting. Pop'n Music was fun since I was a first timer, but the middle button had issues with sticking.

My Mom and I had an awesome time with the Initial D motion simulators and my Dad beat me at that really cool air hockey table.

I'll most likely be stopping in here after Comicon on Saturday to play broken Taiko and the Pop'n Music machine that REALLY needs a new switch or two. If any of you find yourself doing something similar, I will in all probability be wearing an orange PaRappa hat. Feel free to say hi!

I'll update this thread in the morning. I just went tonight.

Relevant info:
Drummania cymbal is weak, but it does respond every time if you hit it reasonably hard. I FC'd a 72 on it. I think it's alright. The machine crashed with a CD error in the middle of one of my sets, but they got the tech over to look at it (yes, Gameworks actually seems to have techs on site!) and he rebooted the machine. It didn't crash again, but be careful! Especially if you pick TL100S!
GuitarFreaks works fine but the monitor looks dreadful. Convergence issues, oh boy!
SN2 1P side is great, 2P side might have down arrow issues but I'm not sure.
X 1P side is fine, it didn't seem too laggy either.
Pop'n Music buttons *feel* great, but randomly decide to not respond. I did pretty well on a 42, but I guess there could be issues for people who don't mash as hard as I do.
Taiko 1P side is alright, but it could be better.

went here a week ago.

Drummania: Awesome
GuitarFreaks: Awesome
Pop'n Music: works fine, except it's weird. The left white button is REALLY loose. Like you can lift it an inch off the cabinet, but it still works fine, I full combo'd a couple of 24's
So I guess.......it's fine, it just needs to be fixed in that respect.
DDR Extreme 1P: Fantastico! except the up arrow is getting weak.
DDR SuperNova: it works alright, stomp a little hard though.
DDR X: BAHAHAHAHAHAHA yeah right, I'm not gonna play it.
Dance Maniax: fantastico! Still one of my favorites at gameworks.
And Taiko?

Yeah, I just went today and Extreme worked fine for me. Granted, I'm not great anymore, but I managed to BS all the runs in PSMO with heel toeing on the 1p side so I guess it's good. Pop'n is okay, although I was having a few issues with the 7 button today. DM works like a charm as always.

Update on machine conditions

DDR SuperNova: A-Ok

Pop'n Music: A-Ok

Drummania/GuiterFreaks: A-Ok

DDR Extreme: 1P side still AAA possible.
Speakers are BLARING on this machine! So much so, that they actually should probably be turned down just slightly, or at least the bass should.
Unlock codes have been put in, so the machine has all courses and songs available. Also the price has been reduced to 4.5 credits (3.6 if you have a VIP card)

If you have a VIP card. Extreme is worth it. 3.6 credits translates to a little over 75 cents.

Dance  Maniax: in working order. Still the cheapest music game there.

uh so they have DDR-X and the pads fucking suck. and theres this little blip that flashes up when you get a marvelous and it looks like what it looks like when you used to get a good and the note would go past the top which used to tell me when i was off but now it means you're on and it's really confusing.

either you know what i mean or you don't.

but the screen looks nice.

god the pads suck. i couldn't hold a freeze on either side. i thought this thing was brand new? oh yeah 8 points.


oh yeah the moved the games around a bit. pop'n is now on an end by itself but it could stand to be louder.

1P Ollie King is broken sorry.

Initial D V3 steering wheels both finally work proper except 2P has no force feedback and 1P has way too much which was strange and 2P doesn't allow using cards but w/e no one plays this anymore anyways.

Extreme is still broken.

Pop'n Music has disappeared..I'm not sure if it's being repaired or if it's being moved.

Supernova is fine, except the 1P Start button is stuck down, so you can't pick songs or mods. 2P pads are in decent shape.

GF is fine, the 2P side was removed because buttons were missing.

DM's cymbal is in rough shape but still responsive. Volume has been turned back up a little bit. GFDM session volume is good.

DDR Extreme is back up, but pads are bad as ever. 1P side is playable if you don't play heel-toe.

It's a shame GF and DM are both having problems; GF was in I/O Test when I went today, and DM's cymbal is slowly dying (not to mention the machine is nearly silent). Pop'n is still pretty good though, and SN is good...as far as SN goes. Extreme was turned off today...not sure what that means.

I went to Gameworks today. Thought I'd provide a status report.

DDR Extreme: Same as usual. Pretty horrible.
DDR USA: Didn't play, but it's probably the same.
GF: Still in good condition.
DM: Cymbal is a bit weak. Irritating, but I didn't have any problems with it.
Pop'n: Right green button (7) is extremely weak. The microswitch needs replacing. You really have to pound the button to get it to register. Volume is kind of low, too.

Damn... just got back from Seattle.  Had a good time... but no GW!  I saw the sign saying private event from 6-11p.  Oh well.  The Pop'n machine was sitting there all lonely, waiting to be popped...

I did get some Faygo though!  Heh...

As for the email tihng, yeah, you get coupons for 2 hours of gameplay for Jan, Feb, and March.  I'll probably use the March one during Sakuracon.  I'm sure I'll be able to blow 2 hours there.

GF/DM volume is ridiculously loud which is cool unless you wanna play ddr, and to a lesser extent pop'n.

extreme: 1P left arrow sucks, 2P down arrow sucks.
supernova: out of commission.
USA: probably sucks, didn't bother.
