Fort Lee Late-Night Gamers Take On Rocket League

FORT LEE, N.J. — Patrons of a late-night Fort Lee gaming center have a new addition to boost the experience: Rocket League is a physics-type soccer game with cars.

Still, to hear co-owner Sam Lim tell it, there's more than gaming to attract customers to Local Battles on Anderson Avenue.

“I’m always surprised when I see a single girl come in here, but more are coming around to gaming,” he said. "People come here to meet other people."

“Other places have bad customer service, and they are all closed up," customer Peter Kim told Daily Voice. "I like coming here. They know my name, and it's always a good time.”

The venue features Sennheiser headsets that block out sound and include hi-definition microphones. There are also Need For Seat chairs.

Local Battles is also available for kids' birthday parties or a fun couples' night out. Whether professional, or amateur, sports lovers, or not, there is usually a game for any customer. Lim has been playing over a decade.

To find out more about the venue, call (201) 820-4100.
