  1. This one? Still coming soon... Ms. PAC-MAN™ / GALAGA™ Class of '81 Arcade Machine - Arcade1Up
  2. I realize you're just here to troll, but it's sad seeing real cabs in the hands of people who can't properly restore or maintain them. Hopefully you're selling them on to people who can do them justice!
  3. You got low self esteem or what? I've seen quite a few game rooms with A1ups/AtGames/iiRcades that look a hell of a lot cooler than your random beater cabinets positioned next to your kitchen stove.
  4. The whole point of this product line is to repackage the old stuff. 😄 We can expect that the most famous games (Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, various Atari titles) will continue to be sold in new forms every single year, because they are known by almost everyone and there are always going to be more people who don't already have them. As long as they're continuing to improve the form factors and the quality of the controls, I think it's great. I was actually looking close at the thumbnail of the above images because I wondered if someone had just used an image of the New Wave Toys Replicade version of Centipede. This looks much more accurate to the original cab design than the Gen 1 Centipede.
  5. The one I saw was the cockpit cabinet, at the Hillwood Plaza arcade in Nashville. I played it a few times. I remember it being pretty good, and I was particularly interested in trying to figure out if the footage of the landscape would bank differently in response to my inputs. Spoiler alert: it does not. But the combination of live action footage and raster graphics is pretty cool.
  6. Aside from Dragons Lair/Space Ace, the only other laserdisc game I remember seeing back in the day was Mach 3.
  7. Same reason there's no Robotron... they've gotta save something to make you want to buy it all again in a couple of years! 😁 It would be nice if they started to put some hidden games on these cabs as Easter Eggs.
  8. Looks great! Definitely more appealing to me personally than the Mortal Kombat design. I'd have to get rid of that Midway logo though! 😄 It's funny because the Bally/Williams pinball table has a proper Williams logo. I guess the pinball games are under different ownership now than the video games.
  9. Looks nicer than the original Galaga cab. Only thing is, the riser is partially obscuring the side art. And it really should have Galaga '88 and Gaplus.
  10. I saw this at the Hickory Hollow Mall arcade outside of Nashville. I was rather surprised to see a home game make it to the big leagues! 😄 This is one of the nicest versions of Choplifter, along with the Sega Master System port. Great use of parallax scrolling to give the landscape lots of depth.
  11. Pong, Super Pong, Ms. Pong, Ponglympics, Breakout, and uh... Mr. Balls?
  12. It looks like the kind of cartoon that would appear in the New Yorker magazine! 😄 The game itself has pretty good depth for a 1986 release.
  13. Literally playing a game of "telephone" with data! It was brute force ambition against technical/legal limitations.
  14. Hey, look on the bright side - at least now we can get nice "parlor wall" smart TVs like they had in Fahrenheit 451!
  15. The trackball is like a band that everybody knows is great and should have gotten more success and acclaim. It's your favorite band's favorite band. But somehow the trackball never quite breaks through to full mainstream acceptance.
