Even the Best Need Rest!

As of today, we are an official partner of Ajax eSport. Yes, that’s the world-famous soccer club from Amsterdam and one of the world’s leading FIFA teams.
WOOHHHHOOOO!!!!
Let me say that again:

WOOOOOHHHOOOOOOOO!!

Working with one of the top eSports teams in the world is a real pleasure and honor for us.
We will be providing rooms for their all-star eSports Athletes when they have the pleasure of visiting Amsterdam to kick some international ass — Even the best need their rest!

With us hosting our own regular FIFA tournaments and Ajax being the best eSports FIFA team the partnership was a no-brainer.

 

The Arcade embraces video gaming in all it’s diversity and glory, from precious retro games up to the most modern consoles and developments the industry has published. All rooms at The Arcade are equipped with NVIDIA Shield TVs and retro consoles as well as Sennheiser gaming headsets.
In the lobby, they offer retro gaming on old analog TVs as well as Amsterdams first full-on Game Room, appointed with six high-end gaming PCs, a console corner, and a VR corner. So pretty much everything that a gamer would wish for.
But truth told, there’s a big difference between the theory and planning and then actually having Pro gamers come by and test your set up. So having a brand like Ajax commit to us is an exciting acknowledgment and honestly makes us burst with pride!

In the future international Ajax, eSport Players will stay at The Arcade, and Ajax will be hosting Meet & Greets at The Arcade as well as training sessions with the Ajax eSports players.

What can we say, we can’t wait for this to get started!

No science club for us but founding and perpetual members of the “smoking behind the school building” club. We did not spend our Saturday evenings painting Warhammer and had plenty of dates to choose for prom. But you know the ways of the Lord (of the rings) are mysterious and so fast forward 15 years and here we are, immersed in the world of video games with little practical knowledge but an enthusiasm as big as Jabba The Hutt´s appetite. Oh, the twists and turns of life… Anyways, this year we decided that who better than us, Jens and Paz, the least experienced..

The Arcade: First Contact. Haaaaave you met Lesley?

It’s a little family what we have going on here at The Arcade. And because we want you to get to know us better, we decided to feature our staff members in a series called “The Arcade: First Contact”. You already know we are no friends of conventionalisms, so we figured out what a better way to start this series than from the very bottom, meaning our last addition to the bunch. Lesley arrived a couple of weeks ago but he’s already turned our worlds upside down. His enthusiasm is contagious and he seems to fear nothing, not even the longest most eventful night shift! He’s also a very smart cookie that realized that being a lover of all things video games,  movies, and pop culture, The Arcade..

Lara Croft. Tifa Lockhart. Cammy White. These are just some examples of female video game characters, introduced in the 90’s, and designed in a way to be sexually attractive and, thus, marketable.
