Now usually if I think I come across something quite interesting I will tip it to other, bigger, blogs to try help get the site known. But today was a magical day, Kotaku.com used one of my posts that I hadn't even tipped them about. Hooray!
have a looksyhttp://kotaku.com/gaming/maxim/maxims-big-...lies-241738.php
although they did call the site arcade heavens because thats the actually web address, which I need to sort out soon. still good publicity!

Got linked to by insert credit today, nice to see we are getting noticed and good to hear someones opinion of the site. He's probably right with regards to me posting more loosely related arcade stories, will take that on board. But at the same time I think the releases of arcade games as DLC is important to remind people of the arcade industry, because that's were it all started.http://www.insertcredit.com/
News: Arcade locator, blog

Here are a couple of nice links I found when doing some research earlier in the week. First, there's Barcade - it's generally an arcade locator. That page also has news about arcades (the locations themselves), which is kind of interesting to see. Unfortunately, while you can search for games, it only returns results showing the versions of that game in the database - not where they're located. If you just search for a location and a genre, such as los angeles and fighters, it returns results of (properly released) fighting games in the area, and then a list of locations. Unfortunately the two results aren't tied! So while it's awesome to learn that there's a bar called Outrigger, this site (though interesting for peripheral reasons) really falls short of its potential.
The next link I found was Arcade Heaven, an arcade-themed blog, though lately it's been getting a bit looser, with virtual console and console releases of arcade games in the mix. But they've got some really nice bits like release news and impressions of Ghost Squad Evolution, or a query about the potential sale of the location of the ATEI and ICE shows in the U.K. It's nice to see somebody covering this beat well, even if it's a bit UK-centric. Probably worth a bookmark. Personally I vastly prefer their proper arcade coverage to their consumer entries, but that's how I feel about everything, so there you go.

I agree. It's hard to come by arcade news so posting on arcade-related DLC doesn't hurt. Of course if there was more news coming out about new releases that would be great but this isn't the console industry.

It's great to see someone else covering pinball. It's hard to come upon coin-operated pinball coverage.
TwistedSupreme - April 30, 2007 04:12 PM (GMT)
I thought they might pick up on this coz it was quite interesting. Nice one MetaFoxhttp://kotaku.com/gaming/knob%27%27%27-heh...-act-256312.php

Shaggy - May 1, 2007 02:52 PM (GMT)
Hehe, I noticed that. MF's post about the Act is getting huge coverage which is really good to see considering that is not the type of game you'd think would create hype, but it is. We'll be hitting 20,000 views in no time at this point. B)
TwistedSupreme - May 1, 2007 04:20 PM (GMT)
Well it took me 5 months to hit 10k, i should think 20k is reachable by beginning of June the way things are going. Must keep my feet on the ground though

Kotaku have picked up on the KOF4 post thanks to editor @ the stinger report for that onehttp://kotaku.com/gaming/slug/gallery-new-...ages-258815.php
Shaggy - May 9, 2007 02:50 PM (GMT)
I'm surprised we're getting so many hits from that one considering that all the same pics are on the kotaku site, but heh it's all good!

GameSetWatch covered Shaggy's Post about The New Space Orderhttp://www.gamesetwatch.com/2007/05/welcom...space_order.php
Shaggy - May 17, 2007 06:12 PM (GMT)
I'm surprised the sneakers are still making the rounds, but that's good news. I've also noticed some attention brought to the lightspace stuff lately.
Shaggy - May 24, 2007 06:31 PM (GMT)
I noticed that we are quoted as a reference on Wikipedia for the Ghost Squad Evolution release.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_Squad
TwistedSupreme - May 24, 2007 09:26 PM (GMT)
That's a first and awesome first at that

Good thing I signed up on the boards. I copied the banner and my friend Craig will put that up on our site. (We have your link on our site already, but it's just a simple "Arcade Heroes" text. :P

Video Mailbag Love
Hi Dave, first of all, great work on the Insider video-mailbag, I have a suggestion for a special article on IGN Insider, maybe you guys find it interesting. Remember how in the 16-bit days arcade-to-console games were a huge deal? with most arcade games coming to Genesis and SNES , all the fighting, racing and side scrollers finding their way home, and player hopping they would look as good at home as they did at the arcades. I just don't feel it is happening anymore, just a handful of games find their way home today, and I was reading arcadeheroes.com about the Jamma07, and there are so many great games out there, and I completely lost any hope to play them at home, games like RaceTV, InitialD 4, etc. How about you guys elaborate on that pointing great arcade games from the past, and arcade games going home today? I know I am not the only one who loves arcade style games. Just one favor, could you reply to me saying if it is a good idea or no way.
Thanks again, and keep the great work.
First of all, Marcelo, we're thrilled that you're enjoying our video mailbag segments. We have a blast making them and there will certainly be more to come in the future (check back next week). Secondly, Dave has never been in a video mailbag. While his hand certainly guides the ship, it's my ugly mug that actually appears in the video.
As for your idea, it's definitely a good one, but the simple fact of the matter is that arcade to home conversions are happening less and less these days. In fact, the conversion from home to arcade is much more prevalent. In my time spent in Japan, a land where the arcade is still very much alive and doing quite well, I noticed that games like Half-Life 2 and Silent Hill had been converted to arcade cabinets. It seems like that type of port is slightly more common in a day and age when videogame sales far outpace that of arcade spending.

Thanks for reading the site Marcelo - it's really too bad that the mainstream game sites ignore the arcade scene, only mentioning games on rare occasion. Maybe one day they'll change their stance.

Two more recent links for the gaming blog giant Kotaku
The Last Starfighterhttp://kotaku.com/gaming/the-last-starfigh...hine-319156.php
50 Tekken 6 Videoshttp://kotaku.com/gaming/tekken-6/tekken-6...nsue-321826.php
Should break the 100k hits in the next day or so :D

Kotaku linked the Sinistar cake story. It's only been hit 51 times on our site though, while on Kotaku it's seen over 2000 views. Maybe one day we'll have that many readers. :)

While this isn't a link I found that BHM Vending (which I use on occasion to find out about new games and their prices) used my first blog post on Big Buck Safari to fill in the description for the game.
Just to compare the two:http://arcadeheroes.com/2008/01/18/raw-thr...ig-buck-safari/http://www.bhmvending.com/Amusements/Betso...ter_safari.html

Kotaku picked up on the Flora Print Club today, with the comments thread proving to be a little bit interesting. Funnily enough, I ended up on a giddy 21st birthday party in Covent Garden a few months back, so I see what Pombar means there!http://kotaku.com/5018713/london-getting-s...specialty-shops
