Arcade 1up Star Wars is Coming!

June 12, 2019 at 2:41 pm | Posted in Star Wars, Video Games | Leave a comment

Arcade 1up unveiled at E3 today their Star Wars arcade cabinet. It will be out in November and includes Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

If you haven’t had a chance to see one of Arcade 1up’s cabinets yet, you might want to check out your local Walmart as they’ve been putting them out on display and some of them you can actually play. I own two and they’re really fun. The 17″ screen is perfect, and while the controls aren’t the best quality, they’re still pretty good. Just make sure you get a deck protector to protect the graphics on your control board as the paint will wear off if you don’t (you’ll notice that on the display models). Arcade 1up does offer free deck protectors if you buy one of the older models that didn’t ship out with one. Anyways, great news hearing they’re making a Star Wars one. I’ll definitely be getting it. They also announced a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade and a Marvel arcade at E3, which is also pretty cool.

Alphabet Squadron by Alexander Freed is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats. The first in a new trilogy focused on the soldiers in a post-Return of the Jedi galaxy. If you’re a fan of Twilight Company or the Old X-Wing books, this is one you won’t want to miss.

The first novel in a new trilogy starring veteran New Republic pilots!

On the verge of victory in a brutal war, five New Republic pilots transform from hunted to hunters in this epic Star Wars adventure. Set after Return of the Jedi, Alphabet Squadron follows a unique team, each flying a different class of starfighter as they struggle to end their war once and for all.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “I’m a Man”

June 10, 2019 at 5:31 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “I’m a Man” by Black Strobe.

Muddy Waters sang it first, but Black Strobe gave it a new life. “I’m a Man” has a great beat, great vocals, and catchy lyrics that just plain work.

Black Strobe is a French band who has focused on electronic music. They’ve been around since 1997, but they didn’t put their first album out until 2007. Burn Your Own Church included the hit “I’m a Man” which was featured in Guy Ritchie’s film RocknRolla. While they don’t have much to choose from, as a music hunter, you only need one good song to make the cut.
