Galaga (Carolina Arcade Museum)

This was another classic I wasn’t surprised to see at the Carolina Arcade Museum. Unlike many games from 1981, it’s not rare to see a Galaga machine (usually in combo unit with Pac-Man/Ms. Pac-Man) at a bowling alley or pizza parlor today. Though I’ve played Galaga more times than I could care to count. IContinue reading “Galaga (Carolina Arcade Museum)”

Things I Like: Majin Buu (Dragon Ball FighterZ)

Majin Buu was one of my favorite characters from the original anime of Dragon Ball Z, and I liked him in Dragon Ball FighterZ, the video game. In the story, Goku and Krillin find him asleep and useless. Just like he is in most of Dragon Ball Super. But he wakes up and joins theContinue reading “Things I Like: Majin Buu (Dragon Ball FighterZ)”

PlayChoice 10 (Carolina Arcade Museum)

This was one of the more interesting machines to see at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, NC. Nintendo made these in the mid 1980’s, and they feature ten of their NES games. Apparently they made many versions, but this one has most of the classic games like Mario, Metroid, Duck Hunt, and MikeContinue reading “PlayChoice 10 (Carolina Arcade Museum)”

Things I Like: Marx (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

I will say Marx seems like a strange choice for a boss, as he’s more of a side character in the Kirby series now. But he transforms into a monster for both Classic Mode and World of Light. This incarnation is heavily based on his boss form from Kirby Super Star. He’s got a lotContinue reading “Things I Like: Marx (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”

Dig Dug (Carolina Arcade Museum)

Dig Dug is a game by Namco, but Atari helped them get the game out in America. I had never played it and gave it a try at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, North Carolina. Dig Dug is actually a pretty fun video game especially for the early 1980’s. You dig a mazeContinue reading “Dig Dug (Carolina Arcade Museum)”
