Review: For those of us who love a bit of retro gaming New Retro Arcade: Neon ticks all the right boxes. It has loads of classic arcade machine games to play (that you have to load with ROMs yourself) and a few classic ticket games like Skee-Ball and a hoop-shooter. While you do have to insert the rom games yourself you do get a really nice, well-made environment to play them it. But if you plan of not inserting your own roms this is best left alone. Maybe one day they will get to use the roms as well, then it really would be worth the money, but for now, it is best waiting for this to be in a super sale.
