2. Big Al's Vancouver is going to get PRO2 again at the end of this month (no idea if it's coming from Beaverton or Idaho)
I talked to one of the guys who works at the Beaverton location (Craig), and he said that they were indeed swapping the Pro 2 and the Infinity machines between the Beaverton and Vancouver locations. It's supposed to happen around September 8th, I think. Kinda sad to see Beaverton losing the Pro 2 because it's been a fixture of the place ever since they opened up 5 years ago, and Pro 2 was literally brand new and one of the first units to hit any arcade. But then again, seeing how I currently live within walking distance of the Beaverton location, I'm pretty bored of Pro 2 and being able to play some Infinity songs would be a nice change of pace. I made sure to point out that they're gonna have to do a LOT of work on that Infinity machine to make it playable.
yeah sorry to say this place is pretty bad. It needs a whole new set of sensors, currently most of them are over sensitive but even then Infinity didn't turn out to be that great of a pump game in the first place so it's kind of a lost cause. Big Al's Beaverton is much better because the pads for SN2 and Pro2 are in pretty good condition, my only complaint is that the Pro2 has a pretty bad visual offset because of the replaced monitor. Also both cabs are pretty low in the volume department, Pro2 has it much worse being surrounded by tons of other noisy games.
The volume isn't deafening but I've never really had too many problems with the volume at Beaverton. What I do hate is that bright-ass prize redemption game to the left of Pro 2, and that giant bright-ass ball dropping redemption shit to the right of Supernova 2 and the 1P side being shoved up against the wall). But Craig also said that they're going to be moving games around soon too, so.... we'll see how that goes.
