Sega RaceTV mini-site opens

March 19, 2008

While rumour suggests that Sega RaceTV isn’t exactly revving the engines of arcade gamers, Sega Amusements Europe has recently launched a mini-site for the game, as is customary for big new releases from the company. Living up to the usual standard, it features a neat overview of the game, some screenshots (sadly environment shots, rather than in-game action) and a video which shows a fair amount of gameplay. It does look interesting, so hopefully I shall get a chance to play it on my next excursion to the big London arcades.

Sega's RaceTV – your opinions

March 19, 2008

Rumor has it that Sega’s newest racer is not doing to well in arcades. We already have reported that it is expected that the game will receive an update sometime within the next few weeks but until then the game doesn’t seem to be making many waves. Personally I have not seen the game yet so I cannot give it a review at this time but I am curious to know if any of you have had a chance to play it yet and if so how the game plays. Does it deserve a bad rap or does it just need a little more time to change people’s impressions about the game?

Sega Amusements USA adds new games to site, manuals

March 12, 2008

Since it’s rare for arcade developers to update their websites, it’s generally something important or interesting that is added to these sites when they finally do get around to an update.While there is nothing here that is terribly new, Sega Amusements USA has finallysegasite.jpg updated their website with information summarizing Primeval Hunt and Sega RaceTV, as well as a new SpongBob Square Pants redemption game. In addition to the standard information that one would expect to read about the games, they also have added PDFs of the operator manuals which offer a plethora of information about the games from how to put the machine together, to how they play, how to “pay attention to customers”, etc. I actually like to look over arcade manuals sometimes as I am able to find out information right away that otherwise I might not find out with only a couple of plays of the game. For example, I was looking over the Primeval Hunt manual and they have an overview of how one can use the touch screen’s features to do things in the game. It would probably take a few plays to notice/discover all of the features but by reading the manual you can go and play the game knowing what to expect and not need to use up credits just trying to discover features(which is fine if you work for the arcade and can pump credits into the machine for free but not so much if you’re just a customer).
