I have no idea what this game is like, all I know is that it’s got the best name in the history of video games – Arcade Heroes! Apparently it’s a four game bundle which includes; Jack Jackrabbit, Hocus Pocus, Mystic Towers and One Must Fall 2097. An absolute bargain, I doubt! [Don’t miss out]

I don’t feel I have to comment on the name, it speaks, for it’s self!

1up Preview of Asian Dynamite

March 12, 2007


The beat-em-up genre isn’t dead. It’s just mostly dead. With next to no beat-em-ups having hit arcades in the last five years, it’s about time one did. Enter Die Hard Arcade EX (Dynamite Deka EX in Japan): Asian Dynamite. It doesn’t have the depth of, say, God Hand, but what it lacks in depth it makes up for in total goofiness. The original Die Hard Arcade wasn’t a Shakespearean tragedy or anything, but it was fairly serious; Die Hard Arcade EX, on the other hand, is just balls out crazy.

Coin-Op TV

March 12, 2007


Just discovered this amazing website called RetroBlast! which features this amazing regular show called Coin-Op TV. What follows is a run down of the shows creator just to give you an idea of how it started.

“Robert (aka ‘Pennyman’) hails from Brooklyn, NY, where he dropped many quarters in the arcades from Penn Station to Coney Island. Robert now lives in Los Angeles where he shoots video productions and makes websites. His interest in arcade gaming was refreshed as a result of the 2004 E3 Expo, where they dedicated an entire section to old school video games. Rob established COIN-OP TV to renew interest and enthusiasm that has stayed with him his entire life.”

So head over there now to watch episode 50 (god I can’t believe I’ve only just found this!).
