Happy 29th Birthday Dynamo!!!

We were happy to help Dynamo celebrate his 29th by quickly whipping up an Apex last minute. He was one happy customer and kindly allowed us to snap a photo while he was throwing a fireball (on screen of course).

His graphic designer supplied us with his own graphic which we printed and installed. If you want your own customised graphic on your arcade machine, then send it over to us and we’ll print and install it for free.

We gave the arcade red accents via the Sanwa joysticks and red buttons which complimented his custom pool table. We are always on hand to advise on which setup is suitable for each client, Dynamo was a fan of the fighting games, so we recommended the Sanwa’s premiere joystick- the Jlf-tp-8yt-sk. These sweet sticks are used in Streetfighter IV arcade machines accross the world

Dynamo is one of the hottest magicians around with his own TV show on Watch and has a star-studded fan base “Absolutely stunning” Will Smith “The greatest magic I’ve ever seen” Chris Martin (Coldplay).

He was also a top guy and honour to deal with and hope that he enjoyed his Apex arcade machine over the festive period.

Happy Gaming!!

Jaguar Skills Custom Arcade Cabinet

From time to time we create an arcade machine of such awesomeness that we have to share it with the public at large. We were commissioned before Christmas to produce an Evo arcade machine for the world renowned DJ Jaguar Skills – we spent a long time discussing his artwork which would cover each side and as you can see for yourself, as always with our machines, it came out amazingly well!

Our printer Scott did a fine job of reproducing his artwork on a giant vinyl transfer. All his artwork was digitally cut out and painstakingly mounted onto one of our black Evo arcade machines. Rest assured Mr Skills, this artwork is sun and liquid resistant so will last forever in all its glory!

If you have a particular vision for your own arcade unit, then drop us a line. We have a team of art-workers on-hand to advise and adapt any design. We would be delighted to make your dream arcade machine a reality…

I nearly forgot to mention- this custom Evo is also 100 percent compatible with both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The Evo features effortless switching between the 2 consoles making both retro and modern gaming a complete pleasure.

In case you didn’t know, Jaguar Skills is a British DJ well known for his mixing style and has a top radio show on Radio 1 and 1-Xtra. He can normally be seen stealthily somersaulting from rooftop to rooftop in his ninja outfit on the way to gigs (much like Tenchu but with a record bag)!

I’m off to play Shadow Dancer now, so as ever…

Happy Gaming!!

Bespoke Arcades wishing all a Happy New Year!!!


The Elder Scrolls V: SkyrimWe just wanted to wish everyone a happy new year. Make sure you keep an eye out for some extraordinary upgrades and new products due in 2012.

2011 was a great year for gaming- Deus Ex, Battlefield and MW 3. But personally, Skyrim was my highlight. I’ve spent far too much time in Tamriel (much to the missus’ chagrin), but at least i clocked it. Playing this game on an Elite in 3D with a couple of tweaks to the .ini was a joy (although the ending was underwhelming to say the least). So much more to see in Skyrim but for now time to get on Arkham City…

Who knows what this year will bring.

Happy Gaming!!
