PCE Works Action and Arcade Box Set Review


I have been a huge fan of PCE Works for a few years now. They are one of a few groups producing commercial quality reproductions. The amount of care and finesse that they take with each of their releases is impeccable. Every little detail right down to the packaging is considered when they make a reproduction. Their Action and Arcade box set is no exception.

Super Mario Challenge Coin Review




While perusing the "nerd section" at Target (where they sell wax packs, trinkets, and Magic the Gathering cards) I stumbled across what I presumed to be a revival of Pogs in Nintendo form. I snatched up a pack, finished off my shopping, and headed home. It wasn't until I went to open the package that I realized I was not opening a package that contained a metal slammer and some cardboard discs. No, I was opening up a Super Mario Challenge Coin.

Arcade Hunters Podcast Episode 64: Nintendo 64!


To celebrate our 64th episode we knew there "could be only one"...topic to cover and that is the legendary Nintendo 64! Now to separate ourselves from the pack, we concentrate mainly on the arcade side of things; arcade games developed (or supposedly developed) for the with the hardware and ports in mind. We share our memories of the big N's 64 from back in the day, talk about the flurry of news surrounding the system's release, how the system impacted our lives, and even discuss some off our favorite non arcade games for the system towards the end of the podcast. Only thing left is to ask "What's your name? Start with a C?"

Snack Break: Super Mario Gummy Candy from Japan!



I use to write an article for Video Game Trader Magazine that covered all types of gaming snack foods; everything from Rondo of Blood energy drinks to Pac-Man Vitamins. I decided to revive the Snack Break article on our Arcade Hunters website. So sit back, pop the marble in the ol' ramune bottle and grab some Pocky as we tear into a fresh pack of Super Mario Gummy Candy - Cola and Ramune flavors from Japan!
