Thanks to Ulrira for the heads up on this one... more details would be great.

Supposedly has good Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike scene and is cheap.

Yeah I heard there's a decent 3S scene in there. I just picked up 3S again recently but my Dreamcast died so I can't practice at home. Ive been playing at Yifans a bit. I prefer the controllers at Yifans but I'll go where the good comp is.

I actually tried to locate this arcade when I was up on Sat, walked right along Lorne but somehow missed it. Ah well, haven't played 3s for about 3 years anyway.

It's not actually on Lorne Street the front entrance is on Queen St. If you leave Yifans through the Queen St exit and look across the road it's almost oppisite Yifans behind a bus stop.

Nah, they moved. They're still in the same building just on the lorne st side.

The competition has kind of died down a bit too, probably because of the crap location.

I remember where they used to be, I did play against a pretty good Urien there once... guess I'll just have to open my eyes a bit wider next time.

Ahh... okay then... maybe that had something to do with why I couldn't find them?
Sad that yet another arcade has closed... there was a Yifan's in Hamilton a couple of years back that closed. Sad to see that one go (although it was pretty shady)
