Just because you didn’t buy that Pac-Man watch doesn’t mean that you can’t have him dangling around on your wrist anyhow. Here’s another way to keep Pac-Man on your wrist, and for a lot less money to boot.
I always loved the game Berzerk back when it hit arcades all the way back in 1980. But for some reason, it’s one of those few classic games that doesn’t get much love these days (although technabob’s mascot was “borrowed” from the game).
I was surfing around looking for something entirely different, when I spotted this odd Space Invaders arcade game over on 4Gamer.net.
I have no idea what the gameplay is like, but I imagine it has something to do with pressing those big pink and blye buttons at the bottom of the console.

Arcade cabinets are just cool–there’s no way around that. However, when they’re built completely from the ground up, in a whole nifty steampunk motif, complete with a little touch of Frankenstein? Then they even make that ol’ Pac-Gentleman look… okay, that’s still pretty incredible, too.
Now that you’ve got your Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Tetris retro mini arcade cabinets, it’s time to add to your tiny arcade collection with a few slightly newer games. These 4-inch long mini arcade games are modeled after classics from SEGA’s arcade hey-day.
The Joytron Singibigi joystick is pretty unconventional looking for a home arcade controller. Instead of the typical black plastic box that you usually find these joysticks wrapped in, this one has a nice looking wood finish, reminiscent of the control panels on Japanese arcade machines.
Wanna own a bit of video game history? Then get your ass on over to eBay and put in your bid on one of these original Computer Space machines that are currently up for auction.
The seller “mywantlist”, is offering both an original super-rare yellow Computer Space machine (only 1800 made), and one of the slightly less rare green models that came out after the initial popularity of the 1st gen.
Anyone who’s played Street Fighter IV knows the only way to actually play the game is with an arcade-style fightstick. Trouble is, if you’re not handy with a soldering iron and have some spare wood and wires lying around, you’re left with just one option, and that’s to pony up.
