Netflix Feature Film of the Month #1

I caught a very interesting film yesterday.  It’s called “Chasing Ghosts: Beyond the Arcade.”  I caught part of it on the Netflix Wii, and the other half on my 3DS.  It’s a fantastic piece on the early history of video games.  As we all know, the arcades played a vital role early on in video games.  What this documentary talks about are the early geniuses of video games, or the gaming gods of the arcade era.

Episode 024 – Falling For 3DS

Well, it’s been almost 2 months but we’ve finally posted a new episode. I feel like I’m writing these apology posts once a month but so be it.

Where Did All The Arcades Go?

Adam and I have spoke of a mutual friend on numerous occasions on the show. Recently, he has expressed interest in writing on the site. This article posted below is his first effort of hopefully many. So it’s my pleasure to introduce all of our readers to Wii Are Fanboys’ newest contributor, Alan Chung!

Brad and Adam have been gracious enough to post a writeup from me on their wonderful Nintendo fansite. Since this is my first writeup, I thought that I would write about a subject that I’m truly passionate and knowledgeable about, The Arcade! Continue reading

Remember These?


I found this on the top floor of a bar in Rehobeth Beach Delaware. I only wish it was for sale.
