London Film and Comic Con 2016

As many of you may know, on the 29th-31st July, Bespoke Arcades attended London Film and Comic con. We’d like to say an enormous thank you to all that came to see us and play on our machines. And a massive well done to Ant and Ben who were the lucky winners of our competition, winning a prize of a PS3 and a copy of Injustice!

It was a pleasure meeting gamers of all ages, and seeing them enjoy the ultimate retro gaming experience on our arcade machines. With classic games ranging from Pac man to Street Fighter, there was a game for everyone to enjoy. Even for the incredibly talented cos-players, with the likes of the Joker and Godzilla himself showing up to play their retro favourites, which was particularly enjoyable to see! Also, it was amazing to see parents introducing their children to unforgettable games that were enjoyed from their own childhood, passing on a love for arcade gaming down to a new generation.

We love being able to give retro gaming fans the chance to play on a variety of our machines. Bringing along one of our Apex, Synergy, Evo and Nu Gen models. We also gave the opportunity for visitors to try out our brand new Virtual Pinball Machine, being released later this year. Which has proved to be a favourite of all those who came to see us over the weekend! With realistic graphics and gameplay, audiences enjoyed masterpieces such as Terminator 2: Judgement Day and the Addams Family in a fresh way to experience gaming, it isn’t hard to see why it was a crowd favourite. Additionally, we ran a competition on this machine on the Sunday of the show, the winner achieving a score of over 48 million on Terminator 2!

Furthermore, the show itself was a wonderful experience! We all had a fantastic time meeting everybody and watching everyone enjoy the machines and the games that we brought along. We also enjoyed trying out new forms of gaming, such as Virtual Reality, which were being showcased at London Film and Comic con this year! Once again, thank you to all that came to play on our machines over the weekend. Likewise, a special thank you to all those who signed up to our upcoming newsletter and participated in the competitions that we ran over the course of the show. We hope to see you at the next show!
