A One-Man '80s Arcade Revival

You may recall an article we did last year about Luna City Arcade, a few dozen vintage arcade games fully
Home Game Room Arcade Ideasrestored and renovated and lined up in the meticulously maintained collection in the basement of a Virginia home. Now meet the man behind it as Peter Hirschberg was the feature of an article released in the Washington Post about his passions entitled, "A One-Man '80s Arcade Revival." It includes a video inside of his impressive home arcade, and tells more about this arcade fanatic.

What's more, Peter has just launched a new project to add to his long list of accolades and contributions to this hobby, Retro Arcade Radio! According to Peter, "Retro Arcade Radio is a free Internet streaming radio station playing anything that reminds me of the late '70s - early '80s video gaming scene"

Xgaming's Newest Arcade Machine: Lumber Jacques

 

We're excited to announce the newest product in our bullet-proof line-up of award-winning arcade joysticks and cabinets. Bring back that twinge in your heart from the glory days of your local arcade.

Introducing the glorious Lumber Jacques Home Arcade Cabinet.

We've re-created the most memorable arcade cabinet of all-time by combining a nostalgic aesthetic with the ultimate in flexibility and game compatibility.  Relive the glory days of your local arcade and induce nostalgia in your game room, finished basement or office break room.

We worked with artist Kyle Kubik on all-original artwork.  We loved the Fix-It-Felix® arcade cabinet in Wreck It Ralph® and our goal was to emulate the 80's arcade legend Donkey Kong® with a faux game concept with a French-Canadian Lumber Jack inspired by our Pittsburgh home-town hero, Brett Kiesel.

We realize lots of people like to build their own arcade, so our focus was to create the most authentic experience imaginable for those who lack the time or skill to build their own arcade and implement as much value as possible with built-in support for nearly every game console ever made.

Stop by Penguin Random house / Crown Publishing's booth 1522 at Comic Con in San Diego to meet Ernest Cline and enter to win a custom X-Arcade Machine for his new novel, Armada.

Comic_Con_2015_booth

We're big fans of his first book, Ready Player One and its 1980s pop culture and video game references.  The entire team was thrilled when the guys at Crown Publishing wanted to build a custom X-Arcade for promotion of his new book.  If you're a fan of 1980s and video games, this will likely be your new favorite novel.

Some words about his first novel:

“Enchanting…Willy Wonka meets the Matrix. Its geeky characters are geeky cool. And its action is imaginative, always cinematic.[Cline] even weaves a sweet romance into this hero-vs.-villain tale.”—USA Today


If you're at Comic Con, make sure to stop by and say hello and enter the competition.

About Armada
 
Zack Lightman has spent his life dreaming. Dreaming that the real world could be a little more like the countless science-fiction books, movies, and videogames he’s spent his life consuming. Dreaming that one day, some fantastic, world-altering event will shatter the monotony of his humdrum existence and whisk him off on some grand space-faring adventure.
 
But hey, there’s nothing wrong with a little escapism, right? After all, Zack tells himself, he knows the difference between fantasy and reality. He knows that here in the real world, aimless teenage gamers with anger issues don’t get chosen to save the universe.
 
And then he sees the flying saucer.
 
Even stranger, the alien ship he’s staring at is straight out of the videogame he plays every night, a hugely popular online flight simulator called Armada—in which gamers just happen to be protecting the earth from alien invaders.  
 
No, Zack hasn’t lost his mind. As impossible as it seems, what he’s seeing is all too real. And his skills—as well as those of millions of gamers across the world—are going to be needed to save the earth from what’s about to befall it.
 
It’s Zack’s chance, at last, to play the hero. But even through the terror and exhilaration, he can’t help thinking back to all those science-fiction stories he grew up with, and wondering: Doesn’t something about this scenario seem a little…familiar?
 
At once gleefully embracing and brilliantly subverting science-fiction conventions as only Ernest Cline could, Armada is a rollicking, surprising thriller, a classic coming of age adventure, and an alien invasion tale like nothing you’ve ever read before—one whose every page is infused with the pop-culture savvy that has helped make Ready Player One a phenomenon.
