    Wink Any game centers in Hong Kong?

    Hi. I'm ashamed to admit this, but I haven't played video games for years and now I want to. I'm interested in GTA5 and SimCity5, so I thought there might be some places where you can pay by hour and play the games - there used to be some shops like this many years ago.

    Do you know any such places? I tried to drop by a few called "Game Center" in Sheung Wan and Causeway Bay, but they only have arcade machines, not Xbox/PS3/PC.

    Buying a TV, a game console and the games doesn't sound like an option, thanks.

    Check those i-one branches.

    That's the default place people go to. Not sure whether you can play SimCity 5 there as you'll need steam... not sure if they installed steam but they should. You'll probably have to then buy the SimCity 5 game for the log-in.

    They didn't have the greatest connection the few times i went. Then again, it's a good starting point to begin your search.

    Hi guys,

    I just moved here from Shanghai and I was wondering whether there are any places around here where expats can meet local girls specifically interested in foreigners.

    That may sound weird, but there are nightclubs in Shanghai where many girls interested in long-term or one-hour relationships come to meet and hook up with foreigners. They usually have good English, interested in Western culture rather than local culture, and generally are more open-minded and West-oriented. Incidentally, two of those girls even told me they have never had any sexual encounter with a non-foreigner (which sounds like a mental problem, but they were nice girls nonetheless).

    So I was wondering whether any such place exists in Hong Kong. I don't mean really sleazy places where you hook up and pay the girl. I'm looking for a place to meet western-minded girls, enjoy a drink, or maybe one night together, or maybe even become good friends after that.

    Thanks!
    wait, this from the guy who posted this? thought you were busy hitting on the local girls. any luck so far? doesn't look too good if you are searching for video games now.

    then a powerful laptop is only way, most pc online places uses old pc technology that can handle sim city, but not gta 5, it seems these pc online café are mostly in Kowloon 6and nt where most of the younger generation ( ie, around 6-12 year olds hand around) while others such foreign travellers use them for internet

    Some karaoke bars also come equipped with game consoles so maybe you can try there.
