I like to think that I’m pretty plugged into retro geek culture, but I have to hand it to the guys over at You Found a Secret Area! for turning up something I’ve not seen before – a series of Atari 2600-themed cars from Hot Wheels.
According to at least one set of criteria, Ms. Pac-Man, the girlied up version of everyone’s favorite power-pellet chomper, must be the best arcade game of all time… or at least, the easiest to track down.
I don’t know what it is about these retro-futuristic watches from Japan, but for me they conjure up images of 1980s color vector video games like Tempest or Quantum.
The limited-edition Scope 2 watch uses a special multi-color (RGB) LED display to tell the time.
Space Giraffe is the latest game from Jeff Minter’s Llamasoft, creator of such classics as Tempest and it’s various derivatives as well as the cool light show visualizations you see in the Xbox 360’s music player.
