Last week on Arcade Heroes

March 25, 2008

Another interesting week, last week. We got some good feedback on what you all thought of Sega’s RaceTV, we had news of a new Global VR game based on the 2006 console release; NFS Carbon, as well as a new mystery game coming from Signature Devices. Thanks to Shaggy for keeping the news flowing. Enjoyed my long Easter weekend a little too much 🙂 hope you all did too.

So we had some SF4 news, as always. We saw some interesting news about the possibility of a new Sega Rally coming our way and Shaggy put up a review of Rip Off for our reading pleasure. In fact Shaggy put up all but one of the posts this week, so big thanks to him for covering for me while I’ve been busy.

Heres a quick roundup of last weeks stories. Obviously there has been a lot going on with AOU. But that’s not all that’s been popular on the site. We had a couple of interesting pieces from The Stinger Report, as well as an update on Shaggy’s arcade. Also there was my long awaited review of one of the arcades I visited in Australia.
