The Traditional Arcade Gets A Next-Gen Makeover

POWERSURGE

We were at the Howard Hughes Center (Wave of the Future! Wave of the Future!), in Culver City and we were very confused by the new business next to the IMAX. Powersurge? What's that? We like video fun and fitness, maybe this is something we should investigate further! We went in and realized that the OG arcade is getting a reboot! Gone is the stank and the sticky quarter slots, now it's a clean place with large screen plasmas and X-Boxes !!!!! (and Wii's) Seems pretty cool, we grew up at a time when kids still went to arcades, so the idea of physical social interaction making a comeback seems great! Unfortunately this revitalization of the arcade might be too late for us, much like The Tick's Bi-Polar Bear, "I just can't seem to get out of bed this month!"
