Top 10 post of the year

February 20, 2008

Now I know our years anniversary was back on  December 3rd, (write that in your diaries so you don’t forget to send us a birthday card), but WordPress, the lovely people who provide this free blog service, have now added a feature were you can see your most viewed posts of the year. It’s either new, or I haven’t seen it before. Anyway, I thought you guys might like to know what everyone have been looking at on Arcade Heroes in the year. So here it is, hit the links to check them out;

1-First images of the next King of Fighter

2-America’s Army Coming to Arcades
3-Pro Keds Releases Arcade Series of Shoes
4-iPhone Spotted In Arcade Crane
5-Silent Hill: The Arcade – UK Location Test
6-WCCF 06-07 Info & Pictures
7-Getting the kids into the arcade and Mario Kart 3?
8-Big Buck Hunter Pro’s Debut in US Maxim
9-Gone Fishing From Tsunami
10-Video: The Act gameplay

If I remember correctly the “Pro Keds Releases Arcade Series of Shoes” story was one of our first big hitters. Other honourable mentions must go to “The Silent Hill Location Test Video” & “The Act Video”. Both of which were original Arcade Heroes scoops by myself and Shaggy respectively. Scoops in the sense they were pretty much the first video of these games on the web. Pats on the back for us then. And you guys too of course because if you guys hadn’t watched them we won’t be were we are today, thanks 🙂

Flynn's Arcade as it is now

I love the movie Tron. Sure it’s far from a perfect film but it’s hard to resist the combination of video games and other computer stuff. In fact it’s Tron that has influenced me to open up my own arcade. If you have seen the film then it’s hard to forget Flynn’s arcade seen at the very beginning of the film. Flynn’s wasn’t the creation of a stage crew and the place still exists today although it is not an arcade. From the blog Story Boredom are some pictures of the building used for Flynns that are as recent as last June. It’s quite a bit different from the film now – it seemed like a much larger building in Tron but you only saw it at night. Even though no arcade is there today, I think it would be awesome to visit one day. Thanks to KLOV poster Ataritoobin’ for this link.
