He also covers almost anything connected to a PC, including keyboards, mice, USB-C docks and PC gaming accessories. In addition, he writes about cameras, including action cams and drones. And while he doesn't consider himself a gamer, he spends entirely too much time playing them.

The cabinet, which we first saw at
earlier this year, will be the company's first with built-in Wi-Fi letting you play drop-in games with up to four players on four different machines, as long as they're in North America. Along with the original game, you'll be able to take on your friends and family in NBA Jam Tournament Edition and NBA Hangtime.
If you like your arcade games even older, though, the company also announced Frogger and a 40th-anniversary edition of its Pac-Man cabinet. Ancestor of Crossy Road, the Frogger cabinet features the original game where you navigate a frog across busy streets and dangerous waterways. Also included are Time Pilot and Time Pilot 84, a game where you seemingly endlessly fly around in circles shooting down different aircraft while trying not to die.
The special edition Pac-Man cabinet "features licensor-approved artwork with faux wood-grain side panels and artwork resembling the original Pac-Man arcade machine." It's loaded with the original Pac-Man, Pac-Man Plus, Pac & Pal, Pac-Mania, Super Pac-Man and Pac-Land as well as Galaga.
