Okay, when I said I was going to try and have one more article up for 2010, this isn't really what I was hoping it would be about. For those of you that know about OLR's long history with Konami's BEMANI series, you've probably heard us talk about this amazing arcade in Southern California called Arcade Infinity.

Sadly I'd never been there myself, but they always had the latest and greatest in BEMANI releases, almost any game you can imagine, they probably had it. And not to mention lots of other great arcade games, including the arcade version of Street Fighter IV (Not sure if they got the 'SSFIV: AE' upgrade, though.) as well as all the great arcade racing games like Initial D V4 and Wangan Midnight: MAXIMUM TUNE. (EDIT: here is a more complete listing of the games you can find at AI.)

But alas, all these games will have to find a new home, as a story was recently published online that AI will be closing its doors early next year. So if you're in the area, you should stop by and play one more round of your favorite BEMANI game, before it all goes away on January 15th!

(shoutout to ryc3 for helping me fill in the games that were at AI, like I said I've never been so thanks for your help!!)

Update 1/1/11 - I just got confirmation one of our SoCal listeners, DJ Tyrant will be in attendance for the 'last hurrah' during the last weekend AI will be in business. So you can expect to see pics, video and a writeup about the final days of Arcade Infinity, here on OLR!!
