Home Arcade Machine

I don’t know about you, but I think I would have killed (ants!) to get something like the home arcade machine when I was a kid. Oh sure, it’s $500 – an amount I have trouble coughing up for it now – but when you’re a kid, money is meaningless.

Although it doesn’t have Mr.Do! or Ms. Pac-Man – two strikes – it does have Root Beer Tapper, the kiddie version of Tapper.

The whole thing is smaller than a standard arcade machine and, if you trust the review on the page at, is really just one of those “all-in-one” joystick TV games with a 13-inch TV. Real? No, of course not. Real enough? For most people, I think so.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
