So Many Arcades, So Little Time

Mario Kart Arcade GP Cabinet

This blog has been relatively quite as of late, but that doesn’t mean I’ve been holding back on anything! Over the past month, we visited a trio of arcades, some better than others, and I’ve been playing plenty of new games, even some time with Far Cry 4 on the PS4! But this post is all about arcades! There were just too many awesome games and great artwork to pass up. I wanted to share with you some of the coolest shots, and some of my favorite arcade games!

And don’t forget, if you want more arcade action, be sure to follow my tumblr blog aworldofgames.tumblr.com to get even more arcade game, tokens, tickets, and information!

California Extreme 2014

California Extreme Logo

Last year I was content to leave all of the California Extreme related posts to my Tumblr, which focuses entirely on video arcades and memorabilia.

Mega Man Gigamix Vol. 1

I’ve always considered myself a fan of Mega Man. Ever since I was a kid I remember playing the Blue Bomber’s games on the NES and thinking they were the epitome of what a great game should be. While my tastes in games has undoubtedly changed since then my love for Mega Man has never waned. So you can imagine my exuberance upon seeing the Mega Man manga sitting on the shelf of Barnes & Noble (along with it’s two subsequent volumes). Though I himmed and hawed, I ended up caving in on my love of all things Mega Man and bought the entire series. Not being the biggest fan of manga (surprising, considering I have a Japanese degree) I was a bit hesitant to the content of this one, but I was extremely happy with Hitoshi Ariga’s art, story, and overall awesomeness conveyed in the pages of the series’ first volume. Let me explain further, so you’ll want to go out and get your own copy!
