GTI Expo 2008 round up with many new games and SF2 the casino game

May 16, 2008

Sega was not the only company to have an arcade show recently, as the Game Time International Expo 2008 kicked off in Taiwan last week. Thanks to forum user Molloy, he provided us a link to a thread on killercabs.com that featured some pics from the show from a user there named kenji. As always if you want to see the full image, just click on the thumbnails below.

One game that I was particularly interested in was Power Boat by IMOtion. They had a video of the game at ASI (which I have been trying to get a hold of since March) and it definently has changed since then – the cabinet is different and I know that they were working on tweaking the gameplay a little more to make it like HydroThunder. I’m not sure when this will come out but a modern HydroThunder-llike game with a motion base cabinet will probably do well in arcades. Is it me or do these look a little like RaceTV cabinets? Also they have made a new cabinet for Panzer Elite Action. I hope to have some more on Power Boat here shortly.

IGS was there in force, showing off games that I’d love to see them release through American Alpha, their US branch but most likely I’d have to import these games. They had the scrolling fighter Oriental Legend 2 there and Pirate Revenge which we’ve mentioned before. Also Speed Driver 2 was there, one of the few IGS games to use full 3D.

More after the post break including the Street Fighter 2 the Casino game!

Sega's Spring Private Show Round Up (with more Rambo than you can shake a stick at)

May 16, 2008

Well we finally have a real look at Rambo with some direct screenshots, thanks to some coverage from several sources on a Sega Private Show that was held on the 16th of May. It looks like Rambo was quite popular and it looks awesome – no one can say that Rambo will be lacking when it comes to graphics at least. Sega also has launched a new Rambo site but it’s nothing fancy, just the pic they’ll use on the marquee. [Rambo Site Japan] I do wonder why it will be coming out in September, it looks like it’s quite far along already as light-gun games generally only have a few levels to play through, enough to fill about a half hour of time, but we’ll see. In addition to the gun you also will get to use Rambo’s bow, but we’ll have to see how that works out. More pics from various sources after the jump with more Rambo including direct screens, booth babes and Virtua Fighter 5R! I can’t be held responsible for what John Rambo will do to you if you don’t make the jump…

Incredible Technologies revamps websites

May 16, 2008

This year several arcade development companies have revamped their websites and now Incredible Technologies has joined them. The new site design for IT is pretty good and it should be since they have been working on it for the past year, it looks like they have streamlined everything and made it sleeker as well as giving a better highlight to each one of their current games. It should be easier to get the information one would need about IT and its games, along with news and  some better screenshots of each game to the site. Now they just need to add some videos of each game in action (which I believe can be found on special sites for each game) and they’ll be set.
