Question from Robop1g:
Hey guys I was curious if arcades were a big influence in your love of gaming, or did you start with consoles?  Have Mike and Jay ever had a chance to visit funspot in NH?  If you enjoyed time in the arcades I recommend it, they have just about every game you could have played during the 80's.
