IAAPA Poll: What game are you most looking forward to?

December 2, 2008

Before we get too far away from IAAPA, I’d like to do a poll concerning games at the show that I meant to do sooner but forgot to. It’s straightforward – of all the games we discussed at the show, which piques your interest/excitement the most? If I missed a game, I apologize but I believe that this list should encompass everything that is brand new that we saw there.

How much would you pay for an arcade poster? Would you pay $1400+?

November 28, 2008


[Thanks to Oga Shi for the tip]

One cool thing I miss about arcades is that they use to produce a poster for every game that the operator could put up as advertising for that title at their location. While some games today do occasionally come with a poster (mostly ones from Japan or Taiwan – I got one with Oriental Legend 2 and I was told that the BlazBlue kit comes with a bunch of promotional materials), many just have a flyer and not much else. Some old posters have become collectors items, like the nude Centipede poster by Atari or as is the case with this Gradius poster in Japan, which went for approximately $1445 USD or 138,000¥ in Japan. Rarity, condition, the quality of the artwork and the game that the poster belonged to is always a factor with these things but if I ever happen to come across for one of these Gradius posters for cheap then at least I know where to sell one now.

Poll time!

October 17, 2008

I was pleasantly surprised to find that WordPress (the wonderful people that host this site) have now added a poll option, so let’s waste no time in taking advantage of it. I might make this a weekly thing, if I can think of something interesting to ask and/or remember. 

Let’s kick it off with a simple one

Poll: Would you rather play Street Fighter IV in arcades or on a console @ home?

May 27, 2008

It’s pretty straight-forward – where would you like to play Street Fighter IV? At the arcade where you can show off your mad skillz for people to gawk at or at home by yourself (or showing off online where most people will never meet you in person)? OK, I am showing my arcade bias by phrasing the question like that but I’m just pointing out the differences. The poll is below click on the choice via the text links below.

Poll: SFIV – Arcade or console version?

Fighter poll results: King of Fighters XII or Street Fighter IV?

February 23, 2008

A few days ago I posted a poll via Survey Monkey asking a few questions about your thoughts on all of the new fighters coming out of Japan and I have to admit that I am a little bit surprised at the results so far. Unfortunately due to the way Survey Monkey works you can’t see the current results (if anyone knows of a better polling system that can be integrated into a WordPress blog LMK because apparently there aren’t any), so here they are as of the writing of this post. Keep in mind that the poll never closes so if there are any major changes then I’ll be happy to let everyone know the results in our forum. Overall, most of you are more excited for the new King of Fighters XII than any other fighter. Of course now the question is, will SNK be releasing it outside of Japan (in arcades) or will fans have to import it (or wait for a console version)?
