Gregg and Mike have known each other for over 20 years, and they've been gaming the whole time.
Gregg's first gaming experience was playing Pitfall on the 2600 with his mother at the age of three. Mike's gaming craze started with Mario Bros. on the NES at the age of four. Both of them collect console systems and games too. Arcade collecting began in 2008 when Gregg picked up a Dig Dug machine for a MAME project. Inspired by all of the great gaming channels on Youtube, in May 2012 the guys filmed their first arcade pickup (Galaga). Now they film and pickup one arcade machine a month, and release the episode on the 1st. Gregg is remodeling his basement to resemble an arcade from the 80's, and both hope to have all of the great cabs that they remember from their youth.
