cdrom1019’s Trip To GameWorks

SSR DJ cdrom1019 recently visited SEGA’s Las Vegas GameWorks arcade and managed to grab some exclusive inside footage for TSS, something the management don’t normally allow but kindly made an exception for us. The photo’s and video are taken on a mobile phone camera so the quality isn’t great but those who have never been to a GameWorks or live outside the U.S. where they aren’t available should get a good glimpse of what’s on offer. If reports going around indicating SEGA are closing all of their GameWorks arcades are true then this is a good time to take a look before they’re shut down and if you live near a GameWorks but have never been then maybe this tour will persuade you to visit while you still have the chance.

Big thanks to cdrom1019 for the coverage and thanks to GameWorks for allowing it!
