Another game table, another trip back in time

Dream Arcades' cocktail cabinet brings out the '70s in us all.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Even with all the quantum advances in digital gaming, there's something undeniably comforting in old-fashioned; comforting, perhaps, because we can play them sitting down.

Whatever the reason, Dream Arcades--an outfit that's never been shy to push the envelope --has gone back in time to create its "Dreamcade 2.0" cocktail cabinet. The four-player table has a 21-inch monitor with tinted glass (so '70s) and includes 145 licensed games from the likes of Atari and Midway, according to Engadget.

It weighs in at $1,899, though that's a bargain compared with the "Synergy Arcade Cabinet" we just saw the other day, sans the built-in multimedia. But then again, Dream Arcades makes no promises of improving your posture either.
