The Hardhit Beetle is a boss in the Color Dungeon which was not in the original Link's Awakening, but in the DX remaster for Game Boy Color, so he shows up for the Nintendo Switch remake too.
I remember when I was a kid, and the only Star Wars movies out were the original three Star Wars films. One of the characters that everyone raved about was Boba Fett which I never got the point of. I thought Disney+'s The Mandalorian was going to be about a Boba Fett who escaped from death after Return of the Jedi, but instead it's about a new guy named "Mando."
I don't think I played this one the last time we were at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, North Carolina. But I think I have played it back in the late 1990's, as I'm almost certain one of the local movie theaters had it near the lobby.

To say Warner Bros has had some flops with the DCEU would be an understatement. But to my shock, they threw a curveball with a Batman movie without Batman and not in the DCEU at all. Warner Bros. made a bold move to base a sole movie on the Joker character alone and got Joaquin Phoenix to play him. I had my doubts at first, but sure enough Phoenix surprised everyone with role role, and he even won the Best Actor Oscar for it too.
Last time I didn't get to play this one at the Carolina Arcade Museum due to time and fatigue. I had played it in the past, which was years and years ago so it wasn't a huge deal.

This is one I wanted to play the last time we were at the Carolina Arcade Museum because Captain America and the Avengers sounds like such a cool arcade game.

I was pleased to see Marvel Super Heroes while we were at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, NC. My brother and I had the game on PS1 but I don't think I had played the original arcade version.

He had a brief but somewhat memorable role in the Zelena arc of Once Upon a Time. At first we think he is Emma Swan's real boyfriend when she got made-up memories of a "normal life" in Boston.
We didn't have time to play Daytona USA 2 last time we were at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, NC.
But Daisy was excited.
It's a pretty popular NASCAR game from when Sega actually made mostly good video games.
During our race, I far outlapped Daisy. It was fun.

I don't think they had this one the last time we were at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, North Carolina. It was made in 1974 by Gottlieb. The "theme" was based on Native Americans, probably in the "classical western" fashion.

Angkor Wat is the largest religious temple in the world. It is in Cambodia but it was built by the Khmer Empire which ruled most of Southeast Asia for centuries. It was originally a temple for Hinduism, but switch to Buddhism as the later kings became Buddhist instead of Hindu.

She's certainly a juggernaut in the game, even though we don't see her in battle until near the end. She's the archbishop for the major church in the continent and the head of the academy school as well.
A few years before the NES and a little after Donkey Kong, Nintendo (and even Shigeru Miyamoto) worked on Popeye. I saw it last time we went to the Carolina Arcade Museum but it was broken. This time it was working. They have it in their gamer basement as I call it.

I thought it was neat they had this R2D2 (Star Wars) as a trash can during our visit to the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, North Carolina.

While I liked his story and season, he was a person I loved to hate. Having Peter Pan be a bad guy instead of a good one was a pretty neat twist.
While Zelda is not a game for arcades, the Carolina Arcade Museum had this up on a wall. I thought the 8-bit inspired sword was rather nea
While Santa Fe's (New Mexico) original name by the Spanish was quite long and was to honor Saint Francis of Assisi, it was shortened eventually to just Santa Fe. Which literally means "Holy Faith" in Spanish.

While they didn't have the machine there, they did have the poster at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, North Carolina. It was the first game by Atari and the first game really to be an "arcade game" though not the first video game ever.

While I wasn't a big fan on his persoanlity, he was a decent character. While I didn't really see much of his backstory during my route of the game, he is the half-brother of Mercedes. After some family drama, he loses much memory of his original self and joins Edelgard's side.
