April 26, 2014 marked the fourteenth arcade party SC3 has put on since 2006, and the second at The Last Arcade on the Planet – a Santa Ana facility fully stocked with over fifty classic arcade cabinets. About 175 people showed up for SC3's trademark mix of retro arcade and console gaming and trading. Overall the event went off very well, with a lot of satisfied players all around. But thanks to a bizarre mishap with an equipment rental service, it nearly didn't. Find out all about it in our April 26 Event Recap.

The next SC3 arcade party has yet to be scheduled, but if things work out as we expect, it'll be sometime around November in Claremont. As always, keep an eye on this site and our Facebook page for announcements. Until then, keep gaming!

As always, thanks for your support!

Who Is SC3, Exactly?

If you aren't familiar with SC3, we're just a friendly group of videogame enthusiasts who like nothing better than to get together to talk, trade, and play games. We've got a soft spot for games from the "classic" days of the early 1980s, but we love games of all eras, from Pong to PlayStation 4. If you love videogames, you're welcome to attend!

SC3 has made a point of keeping our meetings relaxed and informal, but the atmosphere will include some beer drinking and there may be some R-rated game content. This is an adult get-together where supervised minors will be accepted. Parents should take this into account and please let us know if you have questions.
