Black Spiderman pin on Stern Website

October 18, 2007

Stern Pinball has updated their website with information on their recently announced Limited Edition Black Spiderman pinball machine. As you can see the only difference is the artwork (which looks better than the original IMO) and the price tag. This will be available in November.

That’s not a wagon of pumpkins mind, it’s the insane ammout of posts I keep seeing of videogame themed pumpkins.

Hers’s a Space Invaders one, it has Space Invaders cut out of it. Pretty self explanatory really.

Sweet Guitar Hero "Arcade Style" Cabinet

October 18, 2007

In the past we’ve seen dodgy looking arcade cabinets with PS2 Guitar Hero in, and coin mechs fitted. But this is how it should be done if they were ever going to do a GH arcade game.

Simple design, big kick ass speaker and funky customised guitars. This cabinet has been create just for this persons home, but I think it’s definitely worthy of a place in any arcade. It’s even got wheels, ideal for when you feel like rocking out in the kitchen or bathroom!

What can’t you buy on ebay these days? Well it’s not arcade tokens that’s for sure, check out these eBay listings for various arcade tokens that the Consumerist found on the internet auction site. Also be sure to check out the link below by the guy who spotted a great way to save money is to buy arcade tokens off eBay, there are some great observation in there on how these place hook you your kids in to nagging you for more tokens.

If you still thrill to the joys of a real arcade, or take your kids to Chukee Cheese’s or Kings Dominion or other amusement parks, you can save on tokens by getting them on eBay.

Table Top Pac-Man

Now this is the ideal solutions for those of us with limited space for an arcade cabinet in our homes, that’s if you’ve got $1,995 to spend on it.

 Arcade cabinets are famous for taking up more space than they should, and Brookstone aims to solve this problem by making available a miniature version of an arcade cabinet that includes accurate reproductions of classics like Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga right down to the minutest of details, including original sound effects and button/joystick controls. Unfortunately, if you’re living in a cramped apartment (which is why you’re checking out such a space saving device in the first place), chances are you won’t be able to afford the $1,995price tag. After all, MAME is free (although the ROMs are somewhat a gray area), two grand could get you a more than decent gaming rig. I say pick up Namco’s Museum DS instead for a trip down memory lane instead.
