Classic Midway Arcade Games Playable Online

Classic Midway Arcade Games Playable Online
The folks over at Midway have been so kind as to convert a number of old arcade classics into Macromedia Shockwave versions. (I do wish they were in Flash, but they’re worth the extra download of the Shockwave Player) The games are available for free play on Midway’s website and are very good emulations of the originals.

Minox Classic Camera Gets 5 Megapixel Love

The folks over at ThinkGeek have just started carrying this fun little Japanese import. It’s a portable alarm clock that’s shaped like case from the classic Nintendo NES joypad. Looks like they went with the color scheme from the Japanese original Famicom system though.

Miniature Atari 2600 Games on Your Keychain

Miniature Atari 2600 Games on Your Keychain
These miniature Atari 2600 joystick and paddle controllers function as both a keychain and a functional video game console. Certainly they’re a bit cumbersome as keychains, but you cannot deny the cool factor here. I’ve seen differing information on which versions feature which games, but from what I can decipher, there are three versions, one with Asteroids and Millipede (joystick); and one with Yar’s Revenge and Centipede (joystick) and one with Breakout, Pong and Warlords (paddle).

Galaga Comes to Xbox Live Arcade

Galaga Comes to Xbox Live Arcade
One of my favorite arcade games of all time, Galaga, has made its way onto Xbox Live Arcade today. Unlike some of the other classic games to make it to XBLA (hear me Frogger!) this one appears to be a faithful rendition of the original game, complete with online scoreboards and Xbox Live achievements.
