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 the usual kind of news this week; haunted arcade cabinets, Mexican wrestlers and a new pinball table from Stern. But most importantly we had some great news that Shaggy’s arcade is one more step closer to reality. The story brought messages of good luck, advice and some really interesting debate on the games that he could get for his arcade. Good luck Shaggy!
