Re-live Those Arcade Vibes With This Namco Museum Collector’s Vinyl Set

Don’t worry, you won’t need additional coins to enjoy these sweet tunes. If you’re like us and you enjoy a good vinyl set to commemorate beloved gaming memories, the newly revealed Namco Museum set is just the the thing. “Back in the day in our hometown arcade, Galaga was the game that ate the most of our quarters. Those little aliens were so frustrating! But as we got better, we spent fewer and fewer quarters. Most of this we can attribute to memorizing the openings. It was the only way to position ourselves for the best initial offense. After all, killing as many aliens as possible during the entrance ensured a sort of “safe” zone to aid in completing the stage. We can almost hear the “doot doodle dee dee” tune of the next level advancement.

No wait. We CAN hear it. That’s because we have this sweet vinyl pressing from our friends at Spacelab9. This Namco Arcade Greatest Hits – Exclusive Vinyl LP is guaranteed to bring back tons of memories, and the limited edition “Pixel Explosion” color vinyl variant is only available here. This recording includes game play and sounds from Bosconian, Dig Dug, Dragon Buster, Galaga, Gaplus, Mappy, New Rally X, Pac-Man, The Return of Ishtar, Rolling Thunder, Sky Kid, Splatterhouse, Tower of Druaga, and Xevious. Packaged in a die-cut jacket that shows the Pac-Man themed sleeve, it’ll remind you of summers ill-spent. Or maybe well-spent. Lots of quarters spent, either way.”
