The first year we were able to host a Ready Player One arcade tournament with a Black Tiger cab as the prize for the winner. Year Two saw the introduction of the “Play the Creator” challenge featuring John Newcomer and his creation, Joust, along with a Galaga high-score challenge. With another cab prize! Year Three was a Deluxe Space Invaders via high score.
These tournaments, prizes, and the Arkham Arkhade are all due to Rogue Synapse, one of the sponsors of the Let’s Play Gaming Expo’s Arkham Arkhade. Rogue Synapse has agreed to once again not only to return, but come back with another great arcade tournament.
We’re happy to announce that they’ll be doing a Street Fighter 2: Rainbow Edition tournament, with the arcade once again as the prize!
Originally started as a freeware gaming developer, they eventually added on the props and arcade collections section, but the games are still the main focus. Over the years the Rogue Synapse collection has grown from a few random pieces to hundreds of wonderful items from our TV, movie, and video gaming past. From an arcade that would make a bowling alley jealous to a unique assortment of television and movie props that would bring almost any sci-fi fan to his knees, if it rocks…they’ve probably got it.
