IllusionZ sucks. I'm
not the only one who thinks so. If you're going to purchase a
several thousand dollar machine, spent hours repairing to accept
credits, why stop at the making the sticks work part?!
In reality, though, I can't blame the management. On Tuesday of last
week, I had the pleasure of watching the lead tech work on the machine.
He was an amiable and hard-working guy who truly wanted to get the job
done. His job, in this case, was fixing the disaster area that
VOOT had become under the incompetant hands of the previous tech...
eventually the machine was repaired.
On Thursday, we had the distinct displeasure of meeting said bumbling
tech. Unfortunately, "bumbling" is probably not the word I'm
searching for; rather, "apathetic" seems much more apt.
Making his lack of interest quite clear, Mr. Tech decided against
spending five minutes with a can of lithium grease and instead alienated
a group of customers willing to spend money.
At least at Gameworks, they make
