Sexy Vintage Skeeball Machine

750 pounds of beauty, this retro skeeball machine is by Restoration Hardware and is guaranteed to impress any woman who enters your suave hideout. I mean, if you could afford it ($7000). It’s definitely a neat design, finished with sleek wood that bleeds vintage.

Math the Band Release New Music Video, “January 2008”

The greatest band in the universe, Math the Band, just released a new music video for their upcoming album, Stupid and Weird. The video depicts a young girl who runs away from her mom in an arcade and ends up in a crazy adventure where she fends off forest monsters and saves the day. Cute girl, fun song, terrific sax solo included. Watch it, and fund their new album today.

'Gamer Forever'

This series by award winning advertising photographer Jean Yves Lemoigne are totally rocking our brains! They elegantly capture all the nostalgia and haziness of getting caught up in that perfect gaming sesh. The artist also has a photo series of three dimensional pixelated naked ladies which is also worth checking out.

Tiny-ass Arcade Machines
Made using LEDs and little portable LCD photo frame displaying screenshots of arcade classics. The arcades themselves were made with a 3D printer and you can get all the files to make your own over at Thingverse.

Custom ‘Okami’ Arcade Stick

This pimped-out fightstick by Christopher Jones is freaking gorgeous.

From the artist:

Some simple photo manipulation led to this beauty, bought a pink joystick from a friend, needed some new art. I immediately thought of the cherry blossoms in my favorite game Okami. Put a few pictures together, blended the colors, the spirit of Queen Himiko floating in the background and there you have it.

I want twelve!

DoDonPachi: SaiDaiouJou 360 Confirmed for May 30 Release
What will likely be Cave’s final release for Xbox 360 will launch on May 30 according to the famous shoot ‘em up developer. The arcade version of the bullet hell game was released last year. This is presumably the final game in the DoDonPachi series, which started with DonPachi back in 1995, and is the followup to the very awesome DoDonPachi: DaiFukKatsu. The Japanese version will likely be region-locked, but Rising Star Games have been localizing recent Cave shooters like DaiFukKatsu and Akai Katana.

Ikea Coffee Table Arcade
Instructables user hoogen tricked out his Ikea Ramvik coffee into a super sweet arcade machine using a 60-in-1 iCade Classic Multigame JAMMA board. If Don Draper had an arcade coffee table, this would be it.
Check out a video of the buttery smooth arcade stick drawer in action below.

Arcade Machine Hacked To Control RC Cars
Take a close look at the Sega Rally arcade cabinet pictured up top. Those aren’t the game’s graphics on the screen. It’s a live feed from a camera mounted onto an RC car that it controlled by the arcade. There’s even an option to switch between 1st and 3rd person views!

The cabinet is hooked up to an Arduino and I’m sure there’s all sorts of sciency stuff involved that I won’t ever understand, but it’s all pretty dang fresh.
The whole project was developed for the SAPO Codebits VI conference in Portugal.
Check out some footage of the Sega Rally Championship RC Cars Project below.

Border Break Gets iOS Treatment

Sega’s mech-based arcade game, Border Break, is getting an iOS version at some point according to Andriasang.com. You know when you know something probably sucks but you really want it anyway? That’s me and Border Break. I don’t know how Sega’s going to translate this game onto the iPad, but hopefully it works out. I’m not buying an iPad just for this, but I’ll definitely pick it up if I ever do get an iPad, just to fulfill my curiosity.

Note: The footage above is from the arcade version of Border Break, not the iOS version.

Seems Legit
I always love bootleg-ass arcade machines, but this Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow Over Mystara cabinet complete with cardboard marquee spotted by motherloveduck is just amazing.

THIS Is How You Advertise A Retro Arcade Museum

These promotional posters were designed by Michael Arney for the Rusty Quarters Retro Arcade & Museum located in Minneapolis, MN.

And for those of you who say arcades are dead, we urge you to read "The Surprising, Stealth Rebirth of the American Arcade" over on Ars Technica. That article combined with the opening of a new arcade at my local mall give me great hope for the future.

Daily Graffiti: Galaga Stop Sign Street Art
Call me old-fashioned, but other than the Vic Viper from Gradius, the ship from Galaga is probably the all-time coolest looking aircraft in the history of video games.
This 3D street art installation was spotted by Chilly SavageMelon. Not sure if it’s actually made of metal, but if so, I totally want one.

Cave Report: Akai Katana out May 16, Japanese Budget Version on June 14
The North American version of Cave’s most recent 360 port will be available on May 16, courtesy of Rising Star Games and Aksys. Akai Katana is Cave’s only horizontal shooter other than Progear no Arashi. At $40, it’s a steal. But now I’ve got a dilemma. There’s no way I’m paying the $75+ for the original Japanese release. But on June 14, the “Cave the Best” budget version is being released for the same price. Do I pay $40 for an American version or do I pay $40 (plus shipping) for the Japanese budget version? Where’s my Magic 8 Ball?
