Cuphead Arcade Builder Creates the Ultimate Way to Experience the Game

Cuphead by Studio MDHR has done pretty well for itself having won countless awards since its release in September 2017 and also surpassing the 3 million copies sold mark which is an amazing feat for an indie title. With its family of faithful fans, it comes as no surprise that someone would want to experiment in different ways to play the run and gun game and that someone is an incredibly talented designer who built an entire cabinet from scratch and turned it into the ultimate Cuphead gaming machine. User u/Sebjansen took to Reddit to showcase their Cuphead arcade build, which unsurprising, took quite a long time to complete. Sebjansen even tries to keep things looking as authentic as possible, opting to go for the retro double coin slots and LED buttons you see in the original arcade machines. To save on costs,…

Ikari Trilogy Brings Top-Down Mayhem to SNK 40th Anniversary Collection

As the weeks whittle down towards the release of SNK 40th Anniversary Collection for PlayStation 4 we’re treated to another trailer that’s bursting at the seams with retro gaming goodness. This time around, the focus is firmly on the now iconic Ikari trilogy. Originally released on Nintendo Switch late last year, SNK 40th Anniversary Collection is a celebration of titles released in the early days of hefty SNK’s career which has now spanned four decades. However, during that time we were introduced to a pair of no-nonsense commandos named Ralf and Clark through the Ikari trilogy who later went on to appear in the ever popular King of Fighters and Metal Slug franchises.

You can even see which genre you played the most of during 2018.
