  1. Full post: https://armchairarcade.com/perspectives/2020/06/08/upcoming-full-size-legends-pinball-home-machine-revealed/ Summary: The newest entry in the impressive Legends home arcade series, which already includes the Legends Ultimate and Legends Gamer, has been revealed in a fascinating new teaser. Scheduled for release at major retailers in the US later this year, the AtGames Legends Pinball looks like a full-size home virtual pinball machine to be reckoned with, particularly since it utilizes the same popular Open and Connected platform that the Legends Ultimate and Legends Gamer already use to great effect. What's been revealed so far:
  2. Hey guys, I am happy to finally announce the Grand Ole Gameroom Expo. It is taking place November 11-13, 2016 at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs right outside Nashville, TN. We have 20,000 sq ft of event space. It is primarily an Arcade and Pinball Expo, but we plan to run some console game tournaments as well. There is room for a lot of machines, vendors, etc. All games on free-play for the weekend. You can visit the website at www.GrandOleExpo.com for details. You can buy tickets and book your hotel room now. Details on tournaments and signups for volunteers will come later. I hope you are excited about the event and plan to attend. Contact me with any questions. You can email me through the website. I also set up a Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/GrandOleExpo/
  3. I like arcade games. I like the 1980s. I like movies. So one day in class, I thought, "What if I made a movie about 1980s arcade games?" And thus, High Score was born. It is set in 1982 and follows a preteen girl, Tiffany Willis, and her best friend, Dave Bryant, who live in uptown NYC and are both huge video game fanatics. Tiffany gets tons of scores on games both at the arcade at the mall and the local arcade down the street. She's a legend at the latter, always gathering up a crowd of people watching her play. She gets her Atari 2600, ColecoVision, and Intellivision fix at the game store nearby. When the arcade is holding a tournament at the end of the year, Tiffany is determined to win. So she and Dave prove they're the best by setting the high score on every arcade across their country. I am setting up my basement to be the Meril Valley Mall's arcade, and Flash Forward Arcade will be shot at, of course, Funspot. I'm writing the script and playing Tiffany! Follow the progress at PlotBot! http://www.plotbot.com/screenplays/high_score/ Questions about the film can be put in the replies! See you soon!
  4. Eugene Jarvis - Arcade Legend - Podcast Interview - Creator of Robotron: 2084, Defender & Smash TV This is probably my favourite interview to date as I have a long and in-depth chat with arcade, Atari and Williams legend Eugene Jarvis. Eugene shares some great stories of working at Atari, what it was like working with Nolan Bushnell, creating Defender and Stargate. He also talks what inspired him to make Robotron: 2084, Smash T.V. and loads more. He also looks at his current work at Raw Thrills where he keeping arcades alive with amazing innovations. He also talks about his views on the Jeff Minter's Defender 2000 on the Jaguar. Eugene also spends a bit of time discussing his work on pinball machines and the earlier arcade machines. The 1 hour 30 mins chat with Arcade Attack is honest, funny and really insightful. I would be so honoured if you checked it out and shared your feedback.

  5. I posted about it here: https://armchairarcade.com/perspectives/2019/11/15/toy-shock-taiyo-12-in-1-three-quarter-scale-hybrid-home-pinball-machine-with-haunted-house-black-hole-and-more-now-available-for-pre-order/ Basically, it's available for pre-order from Walmart.com for $399.96 and includes Big Shot, El Dorado, Centrigrade 37, Black Hole, Jacks Open, Goin’ Nuts, Haunted House, Victory, Bone Busters, Lights..Camera..Action, Class of 1812, and TX Sector in its hybrid format (digital with some physical elements).
  6. For fans of Steve Ritchie's original Black Knight games, you'll probably be interested in this. Full reveal will happen sometime tomorrow; if I'm lucky, I'll get to play this one on Wednesday if Stern decided to bring it to a a trade show in Vegas: https://arcadeheroes.com/2019/03/25/stern-pinball-teases-black-knight-sword-of-rage/
  7. http://replayfx.org/ Really excited for this year's show. The main course is pinball with a side of arcade and console games. I plan on visiting Pinball PA (formerly known as the PA Coin-op Hall of Fame) Thursday night and then I will be at ReplayFX Friday & Saturday nights and all day Sunday. Here's a video tour of last year's show: https://youtu.be/N2yg0t44qz4
  8. came across this great sight on some of pioneers of computers and computer gaming. Articles on Bill Budge of pinball construction set, Dan (later Dani) Bunten of MULE and other interesting people are profiles. As well as some insightful articles on the early days of EA, Atari, the LISA and C64 (with a big mention of the TI99). http://www.filfre.net/ PS. some of his older post go over how to play some of the classic games. well worth a read.
  9. Now this will be months off after I get everything set up, but once I get my little game building set up I should have room for a few more uprights, hopefully a cockpit game and one or maybe two more pinballs depending on how I set things up. I already have a 1947 vintage Keeny Carousel pinball of the woodrail type. What I want is a more standard set-up pinball with flippers that actually do something. I have a couple ideas from two games I played at the Cuyahoga Falls pinball expo and almost bought. One is Doodle Bug which I found fun and the other I think was Rocket which was really fun, but steep priced for its battered cabinet. Basically, I am thinking later single player EM era up through the early solid state era for a selection. One game that tempts me is Atari's Hercules. What a beast and it is kinda fun. I WOULD have room for one of them if I adjusted right, but what would it cost and does a Hercules use regular 110-115 current or is it something higher? Anyways, any recommendations on fun, yet affordable pinballs? I thought it might ne nice and fun to ask here as I get things set up for my game room future.
  10. Bob did a fantastic job programming this one (as always). Video goes live at 8 PM ET!
  11. Games Done Quick will be running their annual AGDQ event (Awesome Games Done Quickly) starting January 3rd, 2016, and running 24 hours a day until the 10th.

  12. Hey Gang, ZAPCON is back! It's going down April 12-13th once again at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel. Tons of games set to free-play! Films! Seminars! Tournaments! Vendors! It's mostly the same deal as last year: Bring a game, get a weekend pass. Bring 2 games, get 2 weekend passes, etc. Game contributors also get in an hour early, and get an exclusive badge that non-contributors will be envious of. If you're interested in bringing games PM me your real name, phone number, and what (fully functional) pins or arcade games you'd like to bring. Unfortunately due to budget constraints we will not be doing game pick-ups this year. I am, however going to facilitate people going in 2-3 ways on rental trucks or carpooling. Send me your name, phone number and what part of town you're in, and I'll try to connect you with like minded people in your area. Also, if you have a truck or trailer with room to spare and you don't mind going a little out of your way, please let me know. ZAPCON needs you! We're also looking for vendors, sponsors and advertisers, so if you have something to sell or you want to get your name out there, PM me for details. With all your help we can make ZAPCON bigger and better than last year… Spread the word! More info at zapcon.com
  13. After a long, grueling search for an appropriate venue that was both available when we needed and not super expensive, we have succeeded! Sorry it took so long, but it wasn't for lack of effort. ZAPCON will take place April 6-7 at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel. So now it's time to put your money where your mouth is… I'll be hitting up everyone who previously gave an "unofficial" pledge to bring down games for an "official" pledge. For those not in the loop, we need games to make the event successful. If you bring games you get in for free, and we promise to take good care of your property. If you want to participate by bringing down some (fully functional) games for the event, PM me with your name, phone number, email, and what arcade and/or pinball games you would like to bring. Our website, zapcon.com, should be up in the next couple weeks. We'll have more information there.
  14. The Southern-Fried Gaming Expo (SFGE) is a 3-day fan convention focused exclusively on gaming. The expo is held June 8-10 at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel in Atlanta, GA, and boasts over 250 full-sized arcade games, pinball machines and console systems, along with tabletop gaming, vendors, special guest speakers, a film fest, live music, wrestling, tournaments and more! SFGE is a family-friendly event that will be fun for all ages. Special Guests: STEVE RITCHIE As a pinball designer, Mr. Ritchie has created some of the most popular and best-selling games of all time including Firepower, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, ACDC, and the recently released Star Wars. Steve joined Atari as one of their earliest employees in 1974 and over the course of his career has worked for Williams, Bally/Midway, and currently designs games for Stern Pinball. Mr. Ritchie’s talents are not limited to pinball, however. Many gamers will recognize his voice as that of Shao Kahn (“FINISH HIM!”) in the groundbreaking Mortal Kombat video games. JOHN JACOBSEN For the past twelve years, and over 500 episodes, John Jacobsen has been a co-host on one of the longest running independent video game shows, and Xbox Live Community Podcast Of The Year, The Video Game Outsiders on the comedy network, Riotcast. In 2007, John was sucked into the classic arcade collecting world. His first machine was a Donkey Kong, his second a Ms. Pac-Man, within a year he turned his basement into his own personal arcade. Soon after John got his first arcade game, he started a website and weekly YouTube series called “John’s Arcade” and he immediately had a passionate following. Each week John takes his viewers on his arcade adventures in the form of road trips across the country visiting notable private and public arcades as well as gameplay and tech videos. John also shows his viewers how to restore and fix classic arcade games in a “you can do this!” type presentation. John’s Arcade currently has approx. 32,000 subscribers and over 6 million Youtube views. John’s Arcade can also be seen on over a dozen public access channels across the USA. In late 2016, John and his long time friend Jay, took their hobby the next level. Partnering with the Hangar Pub and Grill and Amherst Brewing in Amherst, MA, they put over 30 arcade machines on location in a busy college town. RICH SOMMER Tabletop fanatic and host of the popular Cardboard! podcast, Rich Sommer will be making his first trip to the Southern-Fried Gaming Expo this year. Although his love for gaming is well-documented, you may better recognize Rich from his role as Harry Crane on 92 episodes of the popular AMC drama Mad Men or recurring appearances on Netflix’s Glow, The Regular Show, or Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later. Rich will be speaking at two panels that will be immediately followed by meet and greet sessions.' ORIN DAY Some of your favorite pinball games wouldn’t be the same were it not for the skills of our newest guest, Orin Day. Mr. Day was part of the development team of Data East Pinball and remained on board when that company became SEGA pinball, and finally stayed through the transformation into the Stern Pinball we all continue to enjoy to this day. Mr. Day has programmed and developed software for over 20 of the best games in pinball including Baywatch, Independence Day, South Park, and more. We’re glad to have Mr. Day as a special guest at SFGE 2018! Additional guests listed on website and more to be announced. Photos from our 2017 event. Checkout our 2018 promo video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKsk55EfD48 SFGE memberships are available online and you can save $5 with coupon code JOYSTICK. www.GameATL.com

  17. Hello, I just have a simple question about terminology related to arcade machines. What is the "art" on the flat or slightly slanted part of a typical machine that contains the buttons and joystick(s) called? Not the side art or marquee, but the part with a simple design that fits around the buttons. Thanks!
  18. I recorded this video of me playing Fireball just two weeks before donating it to a local video game store. The machine works but needs repairs and since there was a big trash pick up my folks put this out on the curb. I contacted Digital Press of Springfield, NJ about picking this up and the owner came over then I helped load it in the back of his truck. I'm sad to see it go but am glad it is going to a good home.

  20. Hi I was looking for either or both if you have them Inca Gold and Pinball Zeller games. I would love to have them boxed, but would also be happy with a Cartridge only. PM me if anyone is open to sell to me. Thanks
  21. I represent a group that is seriously looking into putting together a California Extreme style (though smaller) arcade & pinball convention in Phoenix, AZ. We already host an annual con (KoL Con) and we've been consulting with Dann Frank, one of the administrators of the Wild West Pinball Convention that took place back in the 90s, so we've got the chops to make this happen. Right now we're putting out feelers to see who'd be interested in attending, but more importantly who'd be willing to put up some of their pinball and/or arcade games for a weekend. Please let me know if you're interested and if so, how many games you could conceivably bring. Thanks, and If you know any other collectors please spread the word. Wes
  22. I think a doctor will need to surgically remove me from the place! Tonight at 8 PM ET.
