This week on a very special episode of Shack's Arcade Corner, Greg Burke enlisted Asif Khan, the CEO of Shacknews, to go on location at Dave & Buster's Arcade in Irvine, California. They were excited to check out Luigi's Mansion Arcade and Star Wars: Battle Pod among many other cabinets. Please take a look.

      Damn man that was EPIC! You out did your self on this vid, so cool that you went to an actual Arcade and played. Man that Luigi's Mansion cabinet is amazing hey, awesome stuff I want one I bet its like 10 grand to buy LOL.

      Cool that Asif came along as well, you know he loved SW battle pod. Weird about the lack of old cabinets and fighters that is pretty mental. I bet they had no shmups either?

      Some one needs to open a proper Arcade.

      Thanks for the vid.

      Defeating that last Boo in Luigi's Mansion was a huge achievement for the both of us.

      Wow, Luigi's Mansion was the first thing, that was pretty successful!

      Both that and Battle Pod looked like good fun, and it's hard to think that Mario Kart would be anything but enjoyable.

      The card fees and the absurd F2P mobile games turned cabinets are kind of a conceptual bummer though.

        it's quite different from playing on console, but super fun in its own right

          I'm sure it is fairly different, it sure appeared to have different features in the video.

          I presume it allows you to save your history like the F-Zero arcades?

      Such fond memories of D&B! Actually, there's one in Cleveland, so I suppose the man with the briefcase and I could hit one it up one of these days.

      i wonder if you wore a gopro if it would have been easier for you guys to take footage. tbh i'm surprised they didn't kick out a bunch of dudes filming around children, haha.
