Beercade mural: Supreme Awesome in Nebraska?


I don't need to lay out the events that lead me to visit Benson, Nebraska this past weekend. What I need to do is share the mindblowing win that was found on a small-town wall as my gf and I took a walk down Maple Street after breakfast. We both saw it unexpectedly from about half a block away, and by the time we reached the corner, our jaws we on the floor. I believe our exact words were "WHAAAAAAAT???"

Look, I don't know what Beercade is, where it came from, or what it is doing in Nebraska. But I am so very happy I was able to see this mural in person. We were able to glean some information from a local: The owners of a neighborhood cigar shop are purchasing vintage arcade machines in a slow but steady effort to open a wonderful establishment that will clearly contain beer and an arcade. The mural was painted ahead of time in preparation, so all I can say is more power to them and God Speed.

I vaguely recall reading about this or something very similar, maybe even here at Destructoid? Briefly searching online, I've yet to find anything about this specific locale. If any d-toiders or c-bloggers know more, please post a link in the comments! Until then, I took as many pictures as I could. Here are some of the better ones, they don't really do it justice, but they should let you see some of the gamer love that's going down outside of Omaha. And to the artist: Rock on, man.

Who is Super Edco?
Since back from the retro days of yore, anytime a game would let you create a character and name it yourself, I've been using EDCO. It came about as an amalgam of my own name and the fact that an unusual number of games in those days only let you use four characters.

Videogames are a big part of my life. I've been playing and making videogames just about since there was such a thing to be done. My favorite games are RPGs, Fighters, and action adventures, and the rest of that list is a long one indeed.
