Arcade Pickup – The Simpsons and NARC is BACK!
In this episode, I get an unexpected call from a friend that there’s an x-men and Simpsons Arcade cabinet for sale. The guy needs to move, so he’s willing to negotiate, so hopefully we can get a good deal and come home with something. I also received a package from a friend with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles PCB and JAMMA Switcher! Then, to top things off, NARC finally gets the proper 19” Medium resolution CRT!
