My New,Old Mego 2-XL

22 10 2013

So I finally managed to score a classic Mego 2-XL educational robot shaped 8-track playing toy. The device asks you questions, and you choose multiple choice answers, pushing the corresponding answer button. Simple but cool, I really wanted one of these when I was a kid…And now I have one!

Check out the crappy demo’s I made below:





Calgary Pincade Show September 28, 2013

30 09 2013

I had an awesome time this weekend at the Calgary Pincade Show. Local pinball and arcade machine owners brought out their machines to all to play. Admission was $15 at the door or $20 for the weekend. Quite a few games were up for sale and they had two pinball machines for raffle. It was an awesome time and I can hardly wait for next year.

Check out The few pictures and video I caught while there:

Classic Arcade Pinball Plug and Play

Hey people of Earth, hope all is well.

Today I would like to share a quick video of me giving you a tour of the “Classic Arcade Pinball” plug and play game system. It has three tables, runs on four AA batteries and is loads of fun, if cheezy. The unit itself is styled after the 50’s and seems to be 16 bit. Check out my video below!
