Via Gamesetwatch, the Portable Atari 2600 Endure Arcade cabinet by Rafael MSP down in Brazil. Enduro was always a fun game, I’m sure this cabinet makes it even more enjoyable to play.

By the Daily Habit, a comical, although sort of NSFW video of a drunk Ms. Pac-Man interviewing people at E3 this year. Thanks to Mike Snowden for the link!

The British Government entity known as UK Trade & Investment has announced a summit for trade organizations involved in the Digital Out-Of-Home Entertainment sector, which includes arcades and other amusement.
