It’s December 3rd and that means it is the birthday of the Arcade Heroes website! (I actually managed to post about this on the right day this year 😛 )

I just want to take this opportunity to thank all of you that read the site and give your feedback. I also want to give something away – tell me about your favorite story we have run on the website over the years and I will put your name into a drawing for one of these stickers I created recently:


Just put in a comment to this post below and a week from now I will take all of the entries and randomly pick one. Then I will get a hold of you and we’ll figure out how to mail it to you 😉

UPDATE: With the random drawing, “CD ageS” wins the sticker! Thanks for your comments!

Thanks again for your support and here’s some of the videos I have posted over the last week from IAAPA. I am very close to done on editing these and I will have the IAAPA mega post up as soon as that is done.

    That’s a very tricky one as I enjoy the anouncement of new games and new venues but I guess I could say my favourite over the years is about the game grid arcade story and finding out what the reality is like behind running or starting up an arcade and the ups and downs that happen

    Happy Bday AH! I simply love this site. I still am enamored with coin ops ever since being a kid back in the day. Anywho, I would have to agree with first post in my favorite post being about what its like to operate an arcade (Game Grid) in this day in age. Your selection of games and how well they earn. How you keepcthis fresh and appealing to your potential patrons. I hope I can one visit Game Grid as well as many other arcades around the USA.

    If using the same example as the previous post doesn’t count, then I there plenty of others that I enjoyed. Your retrospective look on the Sega NAOMI platform that you did for the recent Dreamcast anniversary was special to me. I love Dreamcast but more importantly I love its counterpart, the Naomi arcade platform. So many wonderful games to look back on.

      It counts, no worries. It is always interesting to me to know what people like reading. Perhaps I need to do an update on how things have been going this year at the arcade 😉 But I’m also glad someone likes the retrospectives, those take a lot of work to compile which is fun to do on one hand but I am glad to get them finished after taking a few days or more to do all of that 😛

    Happy B-Day AH!!

    I like the stories you ran about Dariusburst: Another Chronicle when it was brand new. Talking about how joystick games are still well received in Japan, and talking about the line around the corner of Taito HEY in Akihabara and how exciting that all was.

    And especially when you ran the story about the loc test for your, now fully aquired, DBAC machine. I was there personally for some of that action. Good times! 🙂

    I know it’s only recent what’s started on arcade heroes but I do enjoy also the name that game section and guessing what games they are and discovering games I may or may not have heard of 🙂
