UFO Catcher Slimes

How timely. My store just opened up an embarrassingly awful arcade section that no one will go to in 3 weeks time. It's mostly just claw machines and generic hunting and racing arcade machines. I'd love for there to be better vending machines and arcades in this country but the best we'll ever get are Dave & Busters chains and Coke machines. Hell, I'll vote for whichever candidate can promise me improved vending machines and arcades in this country.

Let's make Arcades great again. All these major arcades have left America, we need to bring these arcades back, and to stop immigrants from coming in and stealing our arcades, we need to build a wall and we'll make them pay for it.

Hey, I just really liked that game. I'm pretty good at it, too. Not the best player ever, but I'm no slouch.

Yeah I know, I was just messing around:p. Honestly I kind of miss the old arcade days, You know a few months ago I actually saw Mario Kart in an arcade, that arcade was owned by Namco, so I guess here and there a few good arcades still exist.

Ticket arcades plague the United States.

 

It's the absolute worst.

Remember back when arcades were focused on having good games so that people would play them, instead of being a casino for kids, Peperidge farm remembers.

I'm going to Japan a week from tomorrow, but I'll be working on NY time, and sleeping during the day.  Your best bet is to find someone living there full time who can help, and sponsoring them to spend however-much it would cost.  Those claw games chew through money like crazy.  It cost me a total of about $80 to get both the DQ Heroes & Slimes t-shirt and the DQ Legacy Boss Towel, back in August.

Are these a new release?  I seem to recall a multi-color slime claw game reward back in 2014/2015 timeframe.  Didn't see anything current akin to these in my August/September trip to Japan.

I'd check Yahoo Japan if you want to still pick them up but haven't seen them listed for awhile.  I picked up a set last year when they first released (if the same ones).  I'll also keep an eye out if I spot them on the auctions.

Cool.  I grabbed an orange and black one off ebay a bit back, but hadn't seen any else.

My big trouble as far as Yahoo Japan goes is that I can't type or read or write Japanese.
