Bits & Pieces is to become an annual art show/convention at Arcade Legacy. The first of hopefully many to come will be on June 16th, 2012!

The show will be featuring video game inspired art from many different mediums. Paintings, drawings, sculptures, digital and even chip tunes music! We will have artists from the Tri-State area as well as many other surrounding states. We are currently accepting submissions from anyone and everyone who wants to be a part of the show. No age restrictions or limitations. It will be a great way to get your work seen and maybe even sell some of your art. All work will need to be submitted for approval by June 4th, 2012. Nothing vulgar or profane will be allowed. You can send an email with attached photos or scans to or stop in the arcade and show me in person.

So far we have around 10 artists confirmed including two chip tunes artists – BABYFACE GLASSES and DYL-TRON. You can check them out here:

Update on the move + New additions!

Posted in Uncategorized on February 6, 2012 by arcadelegacy

Finally an update on the new location! Things have been going pretty well so far thanks to the huge amount of help I’ve gotten. Thanks to all those who have contributed. As of right now, I am still hoping to open the doors sometime between Feb 14th and Feb 21st. It all hangs on the city giving me my occupancy permit. Once that is obtained, I will be able to post up a definite opening date. In the meantime, click here to see some pictures of the work in progress – WIP Photos

I’m sure you all want to know what new things will be at the new location right? Well here’s some (most) to whet your appetite:

-No less than TEN new games – Silent Scope 1 & 2, Madden Season 2, Time Crisis 2, Two more showcase fighting game cabs that can be switched out for any of the many fighters we have on hand, A single slot Neo Geo standup cab, Beatmania 5th Mix, Drummania 10th Mix and Guitar Freaks 11th Mix.

-A dedicated 16 console setup for games new and old.

-A lounge area with couches, tables and a Donkey Kong cocktail table arcade.

-Two giant HD projection screens! One will be used mostly for Rock Band and the other for anything else you want to play.

-A dedicated streaming station for tournaments or any other type of gaming event.

-A giant chalkboard hung above the lounge for keeping track of the highest scores reached at AL.

-Ping Pong and Foosball tables

-New PREMIUM MEMBERSHIPS. Details to come.

-Expanded hours! We are now open 6 days a week and more hours each day.
Monday – Closed
Tuesday – 3pm-11pm
Wednesday – 3pm-12am
Thursday and Friday – 3pm-1am
Saturday – noon-1am
Sunday – 1pm-10pm

There are lots of exciting new things happening at the new location. I look forward to seeing you all there soon.

New Game! Soul Calibur 3 (or 2)

Posted in Uncategorized on January 7, 2012 by arcadelegacy

Just in and now on the floor for play is SOUL CALIBUR 3! If you’ve played the PS2 version, you know there were some issues with the game and is generally disliked by most. Here’s a quote directly from Namco about this version, “Soulcalibur III: Arcade Edition is a re-tuned, re-vamped, and, most importantly, fixed version of Soulcalibur III. Naturally, all glitches found in the console version have been fixed. In addition to that, we’ve re-tuned the overall balance of many moves and re-vamped Amy, Hwang and Li Long as official characters. All three have been revised into more distinctive move sets and help to expand the already expansive Soulcalibur III line-up.” So if you think you know Soul Calibur 3, think again. I also have the option of putting Soul Calibur 2 in the cab and probably will soon as it seems to be the preferred game in the series. A great thing about this cab is that you can actually plug in PS2 controllers and play!


The move is almost here!

Here is a link to the information on the move in case you missed it –
