GameWorks Studio Circle Centre Mall CLOSED?

Post by Ho » Mon Mar 29, 2010 2:16 pm

I've been hearing some talk about various GameWorks locations closing around the country. According to the Wikipedia article our GameWorks Studio here in Indianapolis was one of 4 locations closed as of today. Can anyone confirm this?

I admit it's been quite awhile since I've been over there myself, but this would truly be the end of an era since IndyDDR was essentially conceived there.

History aside, the place has been awful as of late for DDR.
Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.

Alas, this is indeed true. There are several articles stating that the Indy location will be closing.

Brian will there ever be a day when indyDDR.com shuts down?

Please say it ain't so. I am coming face to face with my mortality every day.

But seriously the nasty thought of this website eventually coming to an end lingers on in the corners of my mind and it makes me worse for wear.

By the way I gotta go to the mall right after work to buy / replace my broken phone charger so I'll confirm or deny this shit. If it's closed I'm going to assume the machines will be reallocated to some other locale.

T-T-T-Triple post

Gameworks is blacked out with flyer taped to one of the glass windows, I'll paraphrase:

"Due to circumstances beyond our control Gameworks studios has been forced to shut this location down. We apologize for any inconvenience."

So yeah, confirmed. The end of an era. Where will they hold fighting game tournaments now?! Oh well, that place was shady anyway.

Also it's $30 for a wall charger. I know I'm made of money but seriously that shit is marked up like a motherfucker. It's $20 for a little USB to mini-USB cable that lets you charge your phone from your PC. Worst $30 I've ever had to spend.
