Review: X-Arcade

by Shawn Powers

X-Arcade is an industrial quality arcade game controller that injects the ultimate arcade game experience into your PC, MAC or game console (we tested on Linux, of course). With your X-Arcade Joystick, you can reverse time and play the classics like Ms. Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Robotron, Galaga, Donkey Kong and Street Fighter.

Here's a link to the article I mention in the video. Also, I think it's important to note that although the X-Arcade Tankstick isn't officially supported under Linux, I didn't have any problems using it with MAME in Ubuntu.
