Welcome to the holiday weekend! Today’s newsbytes was a little bit delayed, in part due to WordPress completely revamping how posts work. As usual when a website makes fundamental changes to how creating posts works, there’s a transition period where one has to learn the ropes – but I’m finding that a lot of tasks are taking longer to do regardless. Hurray.
Onto the news:
Arcade & Pinball Releases For 2019
We always take a look at the annual stats around this time of year, where one page is always among the most visited on the site – the “New Releases” page that is linked at the top. This is where we list out every known video game, pinball and videmption release, covering North America, Asia and Europe.
This year will mark a full decade that we’ve been tracking such releases, having started in 2009 (the site has been around since 2006, but didn’t get the idea for tracking for a few years). I am trying out something a little different this year – putting the releases on a bullet list with hyperlinks and images all into a slider. Let me know what you think – if it’s good or bad. It will become the link at the top on Dec. 31st; I hope to get the current 2018 page cleaned up by then.
Check the page out here and share it with anyone who is lazily putting together that next ARCADES ARE DEAD article.
Speaking of that page, you’ll quickly notice how full the roster is of games coming through Exa-Arcadia. While things have been fairly quiet on the Exa front lately, you can read a recent interview with Exa CEO Eric Chung over at Shmupemall.
