A brief video look at the major Armchair Arcade happenings for the "week". Filmed on location at a hotel room in downtown San Diego (Little Italy section). Yes, those are trains you hear in the background. They run regularly well into the evening here.

That train sounds cool - a proper retro sound to it - not like the nasty noises we get in the UK...

They seem to have three different trains running throughout town here in downtown San Diego (by the ocean): freight trains, commuter trains, and something they call a "trolley", but is really just an above ground local subway/people mover. Christina is down here for a conference and we tagged along. Not a bad area. The first part of our trip was in the Anaheim/Los Angeles area, and that was pure vacation.

I like the idea of these

I like the idea of these review videos. I don't think I could cope with those trains as well as you guys, though. Just the thought of that going on all night makes my head hurt.

I think it would be very easy to do these on a semi-regular basis with both green screen and dropped in images (like the posting being discussed or a relevant image) without too much effort. I would have done it here in San Diego, but like I said, I was not properly equipped. Still, good first experiment.
