Well, I finally got around to taking pictures of the games in the arcade. The pictures are pretty big, and could take a while to load on a slow connection. Tough shit. Deal with it. =)
Above: Asteroids, Arkanoid, Mortal Kombat (which will be sold to make room for Spy Hunter and Tempest when the time comes), and Dragon's Lair (currently waiting for me to pop a new Laserdisc player in it. Hiding in the background is Joust, and REALLY hiding (behind Dragon's Lair) is Pac Man. DL's rightful place is next to Pac Man.
Above: Jungle King (needs work), Donkey Kong (The main character, known in this game only as "Jumpman" later became named Mario. The rest is video game history.). And again, Asteroids, Arkanoid, MK, Joust, and Dragon's Lair.
Above: Tapper (The Budweiser version. The Root beer version is more rare, but the Bud version is just so much cooler), Marble Madness (designed by Atari to be interchangeable. Switches to 4 other games in less than 5 minutes. The other four are Road Blasters, Indiana Jones, Road Runner, and Peter Packrat. I have the modules for all except Peter Packrat, which I traded away to someone), Galaga, and Q*Bert (one of the all time great ones).
Above: Another of Galaga, Q*Bert (no, Sandy's damn thermometer is NOT part of the game), and the mighty classic Tron.
Above: More pics of the Wall 'O Games. Oh, and a litter box with some cat shit.
Above: Everyone's buddy, Pac Man. And Joust in the back there.
Above: The pinball machines. How I ever convinced Sandy to let me keep those in the unused dining area at the far end of our kitchen, I'll never know. What's REALLY funny is, women walk in the house and say "Why do you have pinball machines in your kitchen??" and guys go "Wow! Those fit perfectly there!" Just goes to show yet another difference between the genders. Women are concerned that it's a kitchen. Guy don't give a rat's ass, and just find space for something to fit.
Above: High Speed. Greatest damn pinball machine ever. This game rules!
Above: Pin*Bot 2nd greatest damn pinball machine ever. This game rules too!
The games pretty much work. Some are dead, some need tweaking, and some just need cosmetic enhancements (of which I have parts and pieces for, but haven't gotten around to applying yet). All in all, it's a fun little hobby, and really brings back the memories of the early 80's.
Thanks for stopping by!
