Grab some Pac-Man cereal and settle in for a whole lot of ’80s arcade fun.

As we mentioned last month, Twitch channel Shout! Factory TV is revisiting the ’80s with a non-stop marathon of the classic arcade game show Starcade.

The 6-day stream kicks off today and will blast its way through all 123 episodes of the goofy game show. For folks who aren’t so familiar with the video game trivia and high-score competitions the show features, the Shout! Factory crew are providing explanatory intros for each game and host to help establish the context of the 1980s.

In other retro news, Nintendo recently showed off its upcoming SNES Mini and the new features it’ll bring.
