February 2, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hi folks,

Unfortunately, there will not be a new show for you this week as Mike was tied up with work all week and unable to get away to record with Dennis.  It has been a bit of wonky schedule for the show so far this year, but life happens sometimes and things should be returning to normal after this.  Plus, next week isn’t all that far away and will be here before you know it!

January 19, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hi folks,

Unfortunately, there will not be a new show for you this week as both Mike and Dennis have fallen ill in recent days.  Don’t worry, it’s nothing major and isn’t anything to worry about.  Mike has simply come down with an unpleasant stomach bug, while Dennis is suffering from a case of the flu that’s been going around.  Hopefully, with this week off, both will be back up and close to 100% to deliver a new show for you next week.

However, this unforeseen week away does make for an awkward pattern in our release calendar as we will be away once again the week of Friday, February 2nd as Mike will be pre-occupied with work that week.  But, life doesn’t always go according to plan and getting sick is something beyond our control.  So all we can do is make up for the lack of shows by increasing the awesome in the ones we are releasing!

Greetings friends, and welcome to 2018!  Hopefully, all of you out there survived the roller-coaster ride that was 2017, and we here at The Arcade are glad to be getting back into the swing of things after an enjoyable holiday break.  This week, we’ll take a look back at some of the bigger stories that played out last year for part one of our 2017 Year In Review.

The Big Topics of 2017:

  • Nintendo: What A Difference A Year Can Make

  • PlayStation 4 Plays It Steady

Dennis’ Nickname:

The man whose first nickname of 2018 is elaborate and expansive, much like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – a game he has been playing a lot of recently.

February 17, 2017 – No Show This Week

Hi folks,

If you’re seeing this, it’s probably because you came here looking for a new episode of The Arcade.  Unfortunately, we’re off this week because work-related travel plans have made it impossible to find a time to record the show.  Don’t worry, we’ll be back with a brand-new episode for you next week.  In the meantime, you can get your fill of us by visiting our pages on iTunes and the Google Play podcast section to check out a great selection of past shows.  Hey, why not subscribe to us while you’re there?  That way, you can get all of our new shows delivered right to you.

September 16-30, 2016 – On A Small Break

Hi folks, we wanted to let you know that we’ll be taking the next three weeks off due to a little thing called “life” getting in the way of our recording schedule.  Mostly, it’s Dennis who is the one to blame for this.  Why?  He’s moving into a new place!  While this is an exciting time, as anybody who has moved into a new residence can attest to, moving is a very time-consuming and an all-encompassing chore.

In the meantime, you can get your fill of The Arcade by checking out back episodes on our iTunes page, as well as on our Google Play page.  If you have a really voracious appetite for content, then we invite you to explore our Archives page which holds as many past episodes of the show as we can muster.

Having said all that, let us reassure you that, come hell or high water, we will be back with a brand-new episode for you on Friday, October 7th.

September 2, 2016 – No Show This Week

Hey friends, we just wanted to take a moment to let you know that we’re taking this week off because of the Labor Day holiday happening this coming Monday.  We’ll be enjoying one last blast of summer for this year by soaking in the sun, eating ice cream, and retreating to a nice air conditioned area to for some gaming when we get too hot.

In the meantime, get your fill of The Arcade by checking out our Archives as well as our iTunes page which hold as many past episodes of the show as we can muster.  Don’t worry, we’ll be back with you again next week!

March 25, 2016 – No Show This Week

Hey friends, we just wanted to take a moment and let you know that we’re taking this week off because of the Easter holiday.  We’ll be eating many different types of chocolate, consuming a solid chocolate Easter bunny from the ears down, and even finding some time to sit down and enjoy a few games ourselves.

To get your fill of The Arcade this week, we recommend checking out our archive which is home to as many past episodes of the show as we can muster.  Don’t worry though, we’ll be back with you real soon.  In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this long weekend and whatever you decide to use it for.
