Namco tests Dead Heat Street Racing

March 9, 2010

We received a tip today that Namco is “secretly” (well, not so much anymore) testing out a new racing title called Dead Heat Street Racing. There were no details given on how the game plays although from the sound of the title alone it seems to be another game along the lines of Tokyo Drift, R-Tuned, NFS Carbon, etc. but until we see it we can only guess. Where the game is testing now remains a secret – the source didn’t say where it was at but we know it’s out there.  Since it’s testing now I guess we could see it at the show, which would mean that Namco will have a pretty full roster. If it’s there, I’ll be sure to grab some video.

Reminder: Amusement Expo this week, here's a preview

March 9, 2010

This is just a quick reminder that the new combo show of the AMOA/AAMA, better known as the Amusement Expo takes place this week, with the convention beginning on  Wednesday and ending on Friday. I will be there to get some hands-on time with some of the latest video games that will be popping up in arcades around the world later this year, and I’ll have my trusty HD camera there to capture the action. Some of the games you can look forward to seeing:

Pac-Man Battle Royale

Deadstorm Pirates (full software version)

Let’s Go Island

Pump It Up Pro 2 /Fiesta

Go Go Grand Prix

and much more. Not every company has revealed their roster yet (such as Raw Thrills’ and GlobalVR) but I am sure we’ll see Terminator Salvation there since that it’s RT’s flagship title and I expect to see NASCAR Online although without confirmation that is only a guess. No clue if RT will have something new at the show although they generally show off new games in March. As for any other new content, unless there is an announcement tomorrow to reveal more, we’ll just have to wait and see.

If anyone wants to catch up with me I’ll be wandering around the show playing games and taking video, in either a black Pac-Man/Ms. Pac-Man shirt or a blue shirt with a giant Atari logo on it(depends on the day). I also hope to get some podcast content done there too so it should be fun. When AH is updated with new content depends on access I can get to a PC but I’ll see what I can do to get content uploaded as quickly as possible. I’ll be sure to update via Twitter and you can also check my Youtube page for updates as that is where videos will appear first.

See you there!
