The Best Racer of All Time... San Francisco Rush The Rock: Alcatraz Edition
Yeah, I said it. This game is arguably the best driving game of all time. San Francisco Rush Extreme Racing first came out and raised the bar in racing games
with realistic graphics and fast paced action. Then the sequel came out, Rush The Rock: Alcatraz Edition. This sequel included 4 new tracks, 4 new cars, new music
and the ultimate race track, The Rock. Yes, this is the pinnacle of all racing games and what every successive game that eventually came out aspired to be.
Sold: Qix Cocktail
Fellow collector Keith came out today to the Vintage Vault Arcade and Gameroom. He gave me his old Mr. and Mrs. Pacman pinball backglass
so I can hang it in the gameroom. Despite some flaking, this is a really nice art piece and will look great when I get it hung up. Thank you Keith.
While hanging out he asked me about my Qix cocktail table, the one I picked up in a warehouse pick 2 months back. Well the story goes I tried to get it working, tried
a new power supply, tried a new boardset, and in the end the game won out. It refused to stay working. I sold off both broken boardsets to a collector
in Australia who wanted them as parts. This is the first time I have not been able to fix a game, despite all my efforts.
Sold: Coin Operated Kiddie Race Car Ride
This was down in the north wing of the gameroom where the TV, Xbox360, Wii, basketball hoops and foosball table are. I had it for small kids, and every once in awhile I had a ride on it myself. It really didn't get much action, so I had to sell it to make room for some new games coming in. You're gonna love whats coming next into the Vintage Vault Arcade and Gameroom. Stay tuned for future updates.
Parted: Dangerzone... It burns, oh how it burns!
More games coming in, little room left, so something has to go. I picked up this Dangerzone 3 years ago. I never played it as a kid, and had
never seen one before when I bought it. It has always been a so-so addition to the gameroom, so it was time for it to finally go on the chopping
block. Little did I know that it was literally on the chopping block.
Say... That's A Nice Robotron You Got There
Yes it is. Thank you for asking. This game is fast paced, has awesome sounds and action and is coveted by many collectors out there.
These days my "want" list is pretty small but this was one of them.
The Arcade Gets Its Own T-shirt
Well, it was bound to happen. The arcade now has its own t-shirt. Athletic fit, just the way I like it. Mainly, I made up the shirt to advertise the website when I am out and about. Turned out pretty nice, don't you think?
