Diary Of An Arcade Employee Vidcast 004 (12/10/2015)

Welcome friends to the third episode of the Diary of an Arcade Employee Vidcast! Those of you that listen to the podcast know I have tried these last few months to do a live feed at the Arkadia Retrocade in an attempt to let those of you that aren’t able to make it to a fully functioning retro arcade enjoy the sights and sounds of such a place.

Sadly I kept running into all manner of issues using the easier and more popular broadcasting apps available to me so I decided instead to record a bit of my shift at the arcade and upload them as posts here on the Retroist. For this “Vidcast episode” you will get to see some gameplay for 1983’s Star Wars and it’s 1984 sequel Return of the Jedi. I??m going to try for more digest size vidcasts for now, I understand that not everyone has 30 minutes to spend watching a video so this one clocks in at around eleven minutes.

Now this continues of course to be a work in progress so excuse the rather unpolished aspects of the video, I do hope however that you will enjoy getting a bit of a walk through of the arcade, a chance to hear the sounds of a thriving arcade in this day and age.

Diary Of An Arcade Employee Vidcast 04 (12/10/2015)

Friends, here is the 4th Diary of an Arcade Employee Vidcast. This time we take a look at both Atari's 1983 Star Wars arcade game and it's 1984 sequel Return of the Jedi! It seemed an appropriate decision with The Force Awakens opening next week! :D
