Tennis for two - its covered but there are a number before that - if you'd asked me before watching the video that would have been my answer as well

I'd never heard of them before this - have subscribed and there are a lot of other videos that look interesting

For this one I clicked - saw it was an hour and thought 'I'll just watch the first few minutes' but stayed right to the end.

He's an odd mix of classic gaming and gun worship

His videos are amazeballs. The Secret Of Monkey Island retrospective is a particular highlight.

He always manages to make his old game footage look super crisp and modern, with the Quake one being stunning to look at in particular.

I liked the look of the Bubble Bobble My Arcade

But of course it's only one player and worse still, it's not even the arcade version of the game, but the NES.

It cant be long till you get the actual arcade one out - a lot of the 'my arcade' ones are the NES roms due to the size of the system and the price point they are going for

Ashens did a video on a lot of the larger 1/4 sized ones recently :

I've got the Pac-man quarter sized arcade machine in that range and it's lovely. Ms. Pac-man is out soon so I've ordered that too.

I also need to tell you all about the arcade machine I had for my birthday. I'll get some pictures together and post something soon.

Not cheap, but Amazon have the Street Fighter II 4ft cabinet in their Black Friday deals at the moment. £254.99 instead of £349.99.

Gaywood and I went to the Arcade Vaults in Cardiff yesterday.

They had a lot of old computers and consoles (and only one arcade cabinet), but it's a great little place.

Here is Gaywood playing California Games on the Lynx.

For those with Amazon Prime Video, they've added a documentary about the Nintendo Power Glove.
