  1. The Holy Grail of Game Boys: An Incredible Score!

    Stalking the Retro finds the Holy Grail of Game-Boys. I found it in this little shop hidden away in an electronics super mall that I often frequent.

    Techno Mart is one of Seoul's most famous electronics malls. Eight floors of electronic goodness

    Techno Mart very rarely has any retro games but I managed to find this little dusty and poorly maintained booth that had what I was looking for. ...

  2. The Bi-Weekly British Backtrack – Disco Fever Pinball Restoration 02

    Welcome back, I didn't expect you so soon. are you sitting comfortably? Well I'll begin.

    Eager to get this thing working I started off by assembling the table, first by bolting the back box onto the cabinet, and once it’s physically attached with the bolts there are all of the connectors that link the playfield to the circuits in the back box and also a grounding strip.

    Better not to get them mixed up.

    The year is 1982 you have a fistful of quarters burning a hole in your pocket. The only sensible thing would be to spend them on video games. King of Kong is a very entertaining documentary about high scores and the arcade paradise that was the 1980's. The makers of this film must have decided that in order to get more asses in the seats it would be prudent to create an entertaining rivalry. They did just that by characterizing Billy Mitchell as the cartoon bad guy and by using Steve Wiebe as a ...
