track zedd: ranma 1/2: hard battle (selection screen)

It’s been brought to my attention that my previous comments relating to the total lack of visual evidence regarding the Pak-Mann Arcade’s existence was, in fact, more symptomatic of piss-poor online dig-duggery than any actual lack of evidence. The following photo set–which was shot and posted by Flickr user 6633N–shows the coin-op cathedral in its gloriously scummy heyday, and actually features the exact “Space Lords” cabinet that my friends and I would crowd around during our Friday night forays. In the rear view mirror, we probably sank the equivalent of a small nation’s GDP into son of a bitch: just seeing these photos puts the best kind of weight on my heart.
