Re: Hello all!! Newbie alert!

I do enjoy some emulation on my arcade machine but if I manage to find a great oldschool game I like I usually pick them up and play them on the original console for that pure retro feel! 8)

Re: Arcadia Leeds?

You could always call them, their phone number and opening hours are on their website. Leeds is always a good day out anyway so you could risk it and just turn up :lol:

I have recently started reviewing lots of oldschool retro games for my website and was wondering if anyone knows of any really good obscure arcade games that are worth taking the time out to play and review?
