Trip to a Retro Arcade (Vlog)

Pretty sure we’re the next Steve Weibe.


While Ryan Van Liere was in town for the launch of Nintendo Switch, Simeon and Scott decided to take him out for a night of fun at the local arcade. We played a lot of arcade games, Nintendo and others, and sunk a lot of quarters into the slots. Our skills, you ask? You’ll have to watch and see for yourself.

History of Nintendo Arcade Games

We’re gonna be hitting up one of these arcards real soon! Vlog incoming.


Before Nintendo was making the Switch and other video game consoles, they created arcade cabinets with knock-off games inside! It’s true! What’s more, they placed them inside of abandoned bowling alleys. Yes, Nintendo’s history is murkier and muddier than the polished vibe they give off now. Just before plunging into a new era of console-gaming goodness, we take a step back and look at how far we’ve come.

Mario Clash Review (Virtual Boy)

When you have a console whose colors give you headaches, I think it’s only appropriate you should name your game “Clash.”


The original Mario Bros. arcade game… but in 3D! Is Mario Clash worth giving a shot?
