Here in New Jersey, my buddy Richie Knucklez is soon to release his documentary, "The King Of Arcades
". It's a film about how he turned a small hole-in-the-wall in New Jersey into a major retro-gamers club and a venue for internationally recognized gaming events which attracted the best players from all over the U.S. and the world.
It also highlights his friendships with Billy Mitchell (former Donkey Kong champion) and Walter Day (founder of Twin Galaxies International Scoreboard).
More importantly, this documentary is a testament to how Richie single-handedly revived arcade culture. Had it not been for him, classic arcade machines would now be just a memory and a vague reference to the past. He's done more for classic arcade gaming than you could ever imagine. See this movie and believe, this is gonna' be BIG!
Also, Richie is the singer-songwriter for the New Jersey powerhouse Knuckle Sandwich. They have a new album, "Not So Nice" coming out very soon. Here's a clip of Richie fronting for the band...
