Strobing Marquees in the Gameroom

April 26, 2007

I guess this will be our ‘time waster’ for the week. Here is a video on YouTube that shows an arcade collectors game room where he has set up 36 marquees around the room along with a light-strobing effect that is pretty cool to watch. In addition to that he has some pretty cool classics in there, making for a very cool game room.

Tokyo Visited, But Not By Me!

April 26, 2007

A friend of mine went on holiday to Japan a while back and he just sent me the photo’s because he thought I’d be interested in the arcade related pictures, which I am obviously. I can’t really tell you much about them seeing as I wasn’t there but you will notice the appearance of Half-Life which I’ve only ever seen once over here and I think that was on test. Enjoy the pictures and hopefully one day I will go there and I can do some sort of round up or guide to the arcades in Tokyo.

Welcome MetaFox

April 26, 2007

I’d like to welcome our newest writer MetaFox to the site. MetaFox is also the creator of the latest and greatest arcade information database ‘Arcade Addict’ which will become the most comprehensive arcade resource available on the net, including Arcade Videos, Pinball Tables, Redemption pieces and much much more. I’m looking forward to what MetaFox will bring to the site, as he has a far better knowledge on area’s such as pinball and redemption than myself. Which reminds me, I have not played pinball for ages and really need to find a location that has a table.
