Video review: The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift

August 14, 2008

With this review the only new game I have left to review at my arcade is House of the Dead 4, which I haven’t done yet because it has been giving me problems (the right gun will reload every time you pull the trigger and the TV keeps turning itself off at random) which I will hopefully resolve soon.

Anyways here is Drift, which came out in 2007. I had to go with the kit as opposed to the dedicated version due to budget constraints but I have to say that it was easy to install and it has been worth it. There still are some little things I need to fix on the Crusin’ cabs I have, such as the left seat which constantly shifts back and forth with the slightest force applied to it. But it has been a solid game at my arcade with consistent earnings despite the minor things. Here’s the video below, like usual recorded in HD but downgraded to youtube quality.

1st arcade in US gets SFIV, more to follow

August 14, 2008

The Super Arcade (pictured to the right, we’ve discussed it before) in California has claimed to be the first arcade in the US to get their hands on Street Fighter IV and with that I’ve found a flurry of posts from around the internet talking about it (thanks to reader Adam Pfiefer for pointing this out). The Super Arcade got their hands on a Tekken 6 cabinet (which also doesn’t have an official release here – it still remains to be seen with SFIV but the clock is ticking as the console ports get closer) some time ago and reports that came out of it say that T6 has been a a record breaker there. So if you’re in the area you can drop by and see what all the fuss is about. Keep in mind, we know of a few other locations that will be carrying the game as well here soon in other corners of the US. Of course if other arcade games could generate the same amount of attention then we’d be set.
