Let's Go Jungle Special Mini Site

September 5, 2007

I don’t know how long this has been up on the Sega Europe site, but thought I’d link to itbecause there’s a couple of videos about the machine. Can’t wait to get my hands on this, I loved HOTD Special, so I know this is going to be just as much fun, if not more!

Arcade Robbery

September 5, 2007

I can’t believe someone would go to all that trouble to break in to over 50 machines, it sounds like more hard work than a real job!

[via ATE Online]

“Two masked men – one wearing a skull mask and the other a balaclava – stole a ‘substantial’ amount of money after a robbery at an amusement arcade in Worcester, UK according to police. Nearly 50 machines had money taken in the night-time raid, which was captured on CCTV at the Shipley arcade.

A police spokeswoman appealed for anyone with information on the robbery, or who had seen anything suspicious in the vicinity.”

What Are We Playing This Week……

As you can see our games playing is dedicated to one game only each. Bioshock is currently averaging 95% in reviews, so it goes without saying this is a hell of a game and deserves all my attention. As for Metroid…. well it’s Metroid for Christ’s sake!

Shaggy

-Metroid 3: Corruption (Wii)

Twisted Supreme

-Bioshock (360)

P.S. sorry for the delay on this post, we have just been too damn busy playing these awesome games! Good knows what I’m going to be like when Halo 3 comes out!

Gone Fishin' Impressions

September 5, 2007

I finally had a chance to try out the Gone Fishin’ game that I mentioned in one of my first posts on Arcade Heroes. It’s actually pretty fun although it certainly wouldn’t do that well on it’s own. It comes as part of a package of games on a touchscreen system by JVL. When you first get into the game it gives you options for modern or classic games. Gone Fishin’ can be found in the classic game section. Once you start it tells you how to play and then begins. At first I screwed up as I pressed the wrong place on the screen, then I noticed the bear nose in the lower right hand corner. The game is about timing and hitting the fish that jumps out of the hole at the right moment before it falls back in. The fish will fly along, slide, bounce or sometimes nose-dive straight into the snow. The object of the game is to get as many fish to fly the furthest away from your spot as possible. The game gives you about a minute to play and it’s actually a lot of fun. I didn’t have time to try out any of the other touchscreen games but I will give those a try next time I drop by my distributors place.
