Game Underground, Framingham Mass.

I was able to go down to Framingham, Mass. and check out a great store/arcade combo called Game Underground. Game Underground is not only a new and used video game store that covers consoles from the Atari 2600 all the way up to the PS3, but also a mini arcade with TV's set up for console gaming. The arcade games they currently have are a linked Initial D 4 with (working card reader), Drummania 5th mix, Street Fighter 2 Pinball, DDr Supernova, a Global VR ultracade, Dance Maniax, A Neo-Geo "Big Red," Tekken 3 (currently being traded for something truly special), air hockey table, and a IIDX machine that belongs to the local Bemani community.

Game Underground is almost a mix of a mom and pop video game store with a mom and pop arcade. They hold numerous events and tournaments, get togethers, the works. They usually hold fighter tournaments, 1st person shooter tournaments, air hockey tournaments, and a weekly wrestling get together. You can check out their store and calendar by clicking here.

Besides all this gaming goodness, they have a passionate and knowledgable staff who are more then willing to provide you with knowledge and anecdotes to keep you entertained. The general climate in the place is one that truly needs to be experienced. Game Underground manages to reel in that feeling of hanging out in someones basement. The atmosphere is very relaxed while the competition remains fierce.

Oh, and they got a mini stage set up for Rock Band. You can truly lose yourself in this place for hours. I myself spent hours playing Initial D 4, Street Fighter II pinball, BSing, and browsing for some classic gaming gems.

So if you're ever in the Framingham Mass. area, be sure check out Game Underground at:
