G4TV’s Attack of the Show has put together this unbelievably large cabinet for playing classic arcade games. It’s so tall that players have to stand on stepladders just to reach the controls. The cabinet measures in at over 13-feet tall, and has a 70-inch screen for massively monstrous gaming action.

Nintendo NES Crammed in a Sneaker

Nintendo NES Crammed in a Sneaker
The word of the week around here seems to be “pimp.” First, we had the new TokyoFlash Pimp watches, then we had the Atari 2600 pimped -out Buick. Now we have this NES console which was apparently seen backstage after a Sneaker Pimps’ concert.

Q*Bert Qollects Quarters Quite Quickly

Q*Bert Qollects Quarters Quite Quickly
I saw this poster over on eBay earlier today, and I thought it was really funny. Designed as a promotional piece to encourage arcades to carry the classic game Q*Bert, somebody in the marketing department at Gottlieb got the bright idea to replace pretty much every letter they could with the letter “Q”.

Low-Tech Tetris

Low-Tech Tetris
We don’t need no stinking video game consoles to get our Tetris on around here. No-siree, we like to play it using real 3-dimensional blocks instead. Tetris Tower 3D is the classic puzzle-piece video game brought to life.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. A developer going by the screen name Kaisersoze has successfully ported an initial build of MAME to run on Apple’s iPhone. The iPhone version is based on the SDL version of the emulator, which was originally designed to run on Ubuntu Linux.

Crystalcade: Home Arcade Gets Flashy

Crystalcade: Home Arcade Gets Flashy
Sure, there are plenty of companies making arcade cabinets these days, but I’ve never seen one quite like this. The cabinet is translucent and gives you a light show while you get your game on. In what’s probably the least subtle cabinet design ever made, Official Game Haven’s CrystalCade arcade system is loaded up with tons of brightly- colored LEDs which cycle through various programmable patterns.

Pac-Man Shot Glasses: Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Drinky

Pac-Man Shot Glasses: Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Drinky
Nothing goes better with a game of 80’s classic arcade game Pac-Man than getting completely looped doing shots of your favorite booze. At least that’s what I think Namco was trying to say with this set of commemorative Pac-Man shot glasses.
