The Internet Archive Now Lets You Play 900+ Classic Arcade Games In Your Browser

The Internet Archive Now Lets You Play 900+ Classic Arcade Games In Your Browser

Looking for a nice little burst of nostalgia on this fine Saturday evening? Don’t feel like going through the process of installing MAME and lurking for ROMs, but still want to get your classic arcade on?

Back in December of last year, the Internet Archive (in their effort to backup the entire digital world, one bit at a time) launched a “Console Living Room” that offers up browser-friendly emulators for a pretty shocking number of consoles from the 70s/80s. Want to play some Atari 2600? Here you go. Sega Genesis? Yup!)

This weekend, they’ve introduced a whole new category: The Internet Arcade. 900+ classic arcade games, no quarters required.

They got Millipede!

Real Life Tetris

Tetris Created by Sergey Akinfiev

A fantastic photo montage by Russian artist and photographer Sergey Akinfiev. Be sure to check out the showcase section of his site for more cool stuff.

Alas, if only I had the free time of the teenage tcr! and the power of computing that lay before me tonight. I’d be like the two turtles taped together, unstoppable.

Akinfiev work is awesome. Check it out.

Chicago’s Stern Pinball - the Only REAL One on the Planet

Inside one of the last pinball factories in the world

Inside one of the last pinball factories in the world

As I walked into Stern Pinball’s modest facility in Melrose Park, Illinois shortly before Christmas last year, a loud buzzer went off. Dozens of workers streamed past, heading toward a catering cart stationed nearby. It’s break time.

This is all that remains of an amusement empire in Chicago last century, an empire that included brands like Williams, Bally, Gottlieb, and Midway, among others. It’s an empire that helped build the arcade era. Apart from Stern, everyone else has long since left the pinball business — or gone out of business altogether.

Be warned — the linked article is full of hi-res images. They’re gorgeous but will hog your browser while loading. Anyways, I have a handful of memories of being in the arcade, playing Space Invaders while my Dad worked the flippers on the pinball machines. It’d be awesome-spectacular if Stern had tours.

Game of Thrones - Handmade Board Game

I Can’t Process The Awesome That Is Handmade Game of Thrones Risk

I Can’t Process The Awesome That Is Handmade Game of Thrones Risk

The surface of the board and the case appear to be made from wood that was hand carved and burned. I thought Westeros looked lovely as a 2D map, but this game board blows that out of the water. You can also see that there are fabric pouches included in the box; I just bet they hold equally impressive objects.

Look at more photos after the break. Just look at them.

Unfortunately you can’t buy this gem but this one might do ya.

Can’t wait for March 31st, 2013.

EA, BioWare and LucasArts Usher in a Force in Online Games as Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Goes Live Today

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—A stunning Star Wars universe. Thousands of hours of gameplay. Gripping stories. Engrossing dialogue performed by hundreds of talented voice actors. BioWare, a label of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA), today is proud to turn on the servers for one of the most anticipated games of all time, Star Wars: The Old Republic, winner of over 100 awards from critics around the world.

One might think with a $135 million dollar budget, there would’ve been enough money to port it to something more than Windows.

I tried the Beta and it has been really hyped as totally awesome but honestly I was not impressed. I honestly wish they had done another game like KOTOR or something. Plus it is pay to play wish sucks.
