    MGLXXXVI - Timeout - SPACE INVADERS 40th Anniversary in 2018

    Hi Everyone,

    The MGLXXXVI trailer had a promo with Space Invaders to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this legendary game. Without doubt, this game started the first golden age of arcade video gaming. I have posted a recent article published in Stack magazine celebrating this occasion for your enjoyment. I have also posted some other 40th anniversary events and the game highlights.

    Happy to have experienced both SI and Deluxe SI in the bowling alleys when they were still relatively new.
    I spent ALOT of time playing the Atari 2600 of this as well as SI and Missile Command were actually pretty decent ports for the time to the 2600.
    Thanks for posting this - certainly a pivotal game in arcade history and while this game seems slow by today’s standards - it still gets better the longer you play it.
