nl The Nationaal Videogame Museum reopens today

The Nationaal Videogame Museum reopens todayThe day has finally come! The Nationaal Videogame Museum is reopening its doors after 5 months of closure. The new address is Luxemburglaan 1, still in Zoetermeer in the Netherlands. Open in its current form since 2017, what started out as an exhibition of a personal collection has transformed over the years into a gigantic museum featuring more than 1,000 games, ranging from 80s classics such as Galaga and Donkey Kong to the latest Japanese music games such as maimai, Chunithm and Sound Voltex. Although arcade machines make up a large part of the collection, there are also consoles and a bar. Museums can be boring, but not this one of course, as you can play all the games showcased here, making it a huge arcade with games from all eras. As you can see, it must be experienced! Run by Hassan Tasdemir, the Nationaal Videogame Museum opens its doors from Wednesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 18:00, with openings until 22:00 on Fridays and Saturdays. Admission is €17.50 for 2 hours and €27.50 for the day.

jp Street Fighter 6 Type Arcade

Street Fighter 6 Type ArcadeStreet Fighter 6 Type Arcade is finally available on Taito NESiCAxLive following its release for the domestic market in June. The content of the Capcom game is basically the same as the home version, but with the appeal of the arcade setup. 20 characters are currently available, including Ryu, Luke, Chun-Li, Guile, Juri, Ken and the new characters Jamie, Kimberly, Marisa, Manon, Lily, JP and A.K.I.. Street Fighter 6 introduces a fighting system called Drive which takes several different forms: Drive Impact, Drive Parry, Drive Rush and Drive Reversal. There are also two types of control: classic and modern. The classic type retains the 6-button configuration for punches and kicks. The modern type has three buttons for weak, medium and strong punches so you can make special moves by pressing just one button. 2 extra buttons are used for Drive Impact and Drive Parry projections. Players can bring their own controllers to play the arcade version. What's more, local and national matches have become even easier to play thanks to the introduction of a safety mode in which the game isn't over until you've lost two games.
