900 Classic Arcade Games Hit the Internet

Kiss productivity goodbye, the Internet Archive has uploaded 900 classic arcade games! You'll never leave the house again!

The Richmond District-based organization has made sure we stay in our pajamas forever by introducing more games than we've ever played before, and for free! Our 1992 selves rejoice! In December 2013 they unveiled their Console Living Room, which contains classic video games; we played so much Frogger our eyes fell out. But since then, they've been in the process of adding classic arcade games from the 1970s through the 1990s under their Internet Arcade section. Some we recognize from our favorite 1980s Straw Hat Pizza Parlor, but most are brand new to us, so obviously we'll be spending all our waking hours working through the levels of gems such as Crush Roller and Congo Bongo.

If you want to play until your hands fall off and you pass out on your keyboard, check out the extensive list of games on the archive site

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
