Arcade Heroes was started in December 2006 by a couple of arcade enthusiasts who saw the blogosphere as an opportunity to give people a source of news for the arcade industry. As support for covering arcades had almost completely dried up in game magazine circles and by only getting an occasional glance on mainstream gaming websites, there was very little to find in the way of news for coin-op video gaming.
You could find news for specific genres if you knew where to look but no one was really diving into the news for the industry at large and that needed to change. The site first started off with two members, who wrote articles under the aliases Pointything and Twisted Supreme, both based in the UK.
It wasn’t long after the site started that the premier arcade industry newsletter, The Stinger Report headed by industry expert Kevin Williams, began to contribute stories and articles to AH. Stories and links provided by Stinger Report are accompanied by the Stinger Report banner in every post and they have sent in over 1000 newsfeeds at the time of this writing.
In April 2007 Shaggy joined the editorial team and was followed that year by MetaFox and SaraAB87, all three of whom are in the US. The latter two have stopped posting to the site but Twisted and Shaggy were joined by UK poster Heavy Electricity in February 2008.
Each post features the title of the author underneath the headline in case you are curious as to who is posting what. Other major contributors have included Phil Arrington(US), Aaron Auzins(US), Kieran May (UK) and Oga Shi (Japan); Eric ‘ECM’ Mylonas(US) ;as well as marketing directors from every company involved in producing games in the arcade industry.
We also would like to thank everyone who has provided tips to us in the past. We also appreciate it when sites who discuss the news we break give us credit for it as that is simple netiquette.
