The traditional American arcade may have died out, but two designers have paid homage to a vital part of video game history through a series of illustrations. Michael Mateyko and Hans Thiessen are collectively Komboh, a design and illustration firm based in Calgary, Canada. In addition to “paying the bills” with work for publications and companies, Komboh also creates and sells artworks on its site.
The Amusement Field Identification Kit is a fun series of annotated diagrams of iconic cabinets. Classics like Donkey Kong, Pong, Ms. Pac-Man, and SNK’s Neo-Geo MVS are all faithfully reimagined in the style of a field manual. Similar to the guides for car enthusiasts and the military, each cabinet’s outline is accurately portrayed, while…
Every week, players of the global augmented-reality game Ingress receive an email that starts the same way. “Greetings Agent,” it begins. “The global struggle for control of XM and human Mind Units continues.” To an outsider, the emails can come across like low-rent basic-cable sci-fi. But to the game’s thousands of hardcore players, they’re a rallying cry to get out of the house and wage virtual war. After a year in beta, Ingress opens fully to the public tomorrowafter events in 14 cities that are serving as a kind of season finale.
Ingress can easily be seen as a lark for Google, which launched the game through its Niantic Labs internal incubator. But a year in, the bigger vision behind Ingress is starting to come into focus….

Question by magnificent41: does anyone remember an arcade game that was about a red and blue cops that would turn into robots?
well not really would they turn into robots, but they would get armour as the levels would get higher. man this game was pretty cool. it had a level with a fat guy holding a trash can lid to protect himself as he throws flames from his mouth, the only way to avoid his flames was to jump and shoot him.

Question by sobe50418: Whats the difference between the xbox 360 arcade and the standard xbox?
I noticed on eBay that the Xbox 360 arcade version is a lot cheaper than the standard Xbox 360, why is this, can I do the same with the arcade version as I can with the Xbox that is $ 349 in best buy or the standard premium version?

Next month will see the launch of a surprising new addition to the Halo franchise — Spartan Assault, a top-down, twin stick-style arcade shooter coming to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 devices in July. Not only does the game move away from the first-person perspective the series is known for, but it will also include what Microsoft describes as a “unique fusion of touch and console-like controls for easy pick-up-and-play gaming.” On PCs and tablets you’ll be able to play with a mouse and keyboard in addition to touch.
The game is being co-developed by Vanguard Games and 343 Industries, Microsoft’s Halo-focused studio that most recently launched Halo 4. Spartan Assault will feature some integration with that game, including the ability…

This is a super outstanding computer game themed stop movement animation made by Michael Birken using Post-Its. It managed 2,304-hours (the equivalent of 96 days) stretching over 11 months to develop and consists of 5,772 individual frames. I can’t even fathom spending that much time on a project. Generally by the second day I have actually lost interest in whatever I was doing and I’m back on my usual feces at the bar discussing to the bartender why I’m back regardless of informing him just two days ago, “You most likely will not be seeing me for a truly, really very long time.”.

Because drinking beer is actually the least fun thing about beer pong, arcade manufacturer Bay Tek Games is releasing Beer Pong Master, a beer pong arcade game with zero alcohol. So…it’s not really beer pong is it? It’s just pong. Jk jk, just a waste of a dollar.
Normal beer pong mechanics are in play here, but you have a set amount of time (our machine was registered at 60-second games) to sink as many balls in the still-lit cups as possible. All 10 cups begin completely lit at the start of the timer, and once your first ball connects to the rim of any cup, the clock begins winding down until you’ve sunk a ball in every cup and dimmed all the lights, or 60 seconds has passed, whichever comes first
Man, this kind of makes me want to go play carnival games. Yeah, and I’m gonna win a big prize — none of those small or medium stuffed animals for me. I’m gonna be the guy carrying the GIANT BEAR. Fun fact: did you know that nobody ever actually wins the big stuffed animals at amusement parks and the people you see walking around with them are just employees paid to do that? Well that’s true and don’t even try to say you’ve won one or know somebody who has because that makes you a dirty liar.
