Normally this is the part where we sit and talk about some of the coolest games that have recently hit the iiRcade. Since we are at the end of the year, it is time to reflect on where the iiRcade is in the video game industry. Now I won’t be talking about
numbers, because that is a corporate level conversation that none of us were a part of. No, this is to talk about where we are one year later after the iiRcade has officially been in the consumers hands.
When iiRcade was first introduced through Kickstarter, we here are Old School Gamer Magazine were taken back by what this creative idea was and what it could
become. A retro gaming console in the form of an arcade machine that allows you to play classic retro games and
also some of the classic home system games.
Brad has been a die hard arcade fan ever since he can remember. From the first time he played Space Invaders, to the first time he played Pacman, Brad has always had a love for video games. Hanging out at either the Great American Fun Factory in the mall, or spending the night in front of the glowing games at the local roller rink, he was always thinking about when he can spend the next quarter.
He also worked at Babbages, which is now GameStop, for over six years. Mostly because they had a really sweet checkout policy on new products and great discounts. But since he had the Atari 2600, he has never looked back and owned some of the greatest home machines, NES, SNES, GENESIS, Turbo Graphix 16, GameBoy, Game Gear, Lynx, Playsation 1,2,3,4 and Vita, XBOX, Gamecube, and N64...just to name a few.
Brad is also a reviewer for Mobile Beat Magazine as well as a freelance videographer, part time disc jockey, performing artist and photographer. But has a true love is for video games and Star Wars, as he is a member of the 501st Central Garrison.
His ultimate dream is to own a fully working pinball machine and arcade machine. Difficult to say which one, but a Star Wars one would be nice start.
