DreamAuthentics Katana arcade cab

December 11, 2007


I admit that one not so nice thing about arcade collecting are the size of the cabs – sometimes they just take up so much space especially with some of the MAME cabs out there that like to add extra stuff to the cabinet to accommodate different types of controls. The Stinger Report pointed us to the new Katana cab by DreamAuthentics and it looks like a nice home solution that can act as a home arcade machine and digital jukebox. Not too shabby and it has a nice design and allows for custom skins to be applied to the cabinet and of course it runs MAME to play the games.

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year

December 11, 2007


Tomorrow I am off to Australia for Christmas and New Year to visit one of my best mates. So I’ll take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Fret not though as I am sure my fellow Arcade Heroes Shaggy & Sara will keep you up to date on all the latest news whilst I am away.

Rest assured if I stumble across any arcades on my travels I will be ready with my camera. It will be interesting to see what I come across because I have no idea what the arcade scene is like down under.

Also I want to say a thanks to all of you who have tipped us, commented on posts and visited the site this year. I never expected the site to grow as quickly as it has and I will be looking forward to next year, and whatever arcade treats that maybe in store for us. Also a big thanks to Kevin Williams of The Stinger Report for all the marvelous tips he has put our way this year.

See you on the other side of 2007
