Friggin' Japan and its awesome Taito Station arcades!


8:00 AM on 12.11.2011



Nerdcore artist Random is currently touring Japan and taking the time to enjoy the sights and sounds in between gigs. Naturally, he had to check out a Taito Station and share the experience with his fans.

This is pure guerrilla filming, as photography is not allowed in the building. Using a Flip camera, he gives us just a little peek at a couple of the arcade's five floors. There are, of course, the rows upon rows of Bemani machines, but there are also a couple of surprises such as a glimpse of Sonic Blast Heroes, the sequel to the classic punching game Sonic Blast Man. But you will totally sh*t bricks when you see the Dariusburst cabinet. Hooooo-leeeee crap.

As with the video of Super Potato from a few days back, we only get a little taste of the glory before the video ends. I think I'm going to harass Dale constantly until he's forced to take me with him the next time he hits up Japan.

How does 900 classic arcade games in your browser sound?

Fancy the greatest classic gaming selection of all time? It's not at some fabled arcade where the sound of dropping quarters and eight-bit music drowns out the dimmed oldies rock station playing over the worn out speakers. No...more

Capcom is haunting arcades with Luigi's Mansion

Luigi's bringing his ghost-bustin' vaccum-totin' ways to a new scene that's full of noise and flashing lights, and it's all thanks to Capcom. The GameCube classic Luigi's Mansion is being refitted for arcades, as indicated by...more
