Retro X: Arcade

These retro X-Men games are truly terrible

Bless 'em for trying, but the retro inspired mini-games 20th Century Fox cooked up to promote X-Men: Apocalypse are pretty damn terrible. Tenuously tied to the film as a throwback to the '80s when the movie is set, Retro X: Arcade is a set ...

Ski Rodeo VR may have you screaming for your life

Rarely do I get to publish a real person's shrieks of death, so I'm morbidly enjoying this. This is Ski Rodeo, a Bandai Namco VR ski simulator powered by HTC Vive. The experience is unique in that it listens to your breathing (an...

How do they get arcade games out of skyscrapers? Cranes

I probably never would have thought of this on my own, but those arcade games have to move somehow, right? Over in Japan, someone snapped a few pictures for Twitter of a Club Sega location, showing exactly how they get some of the bigger ar...

Namco's Arcade Game Series kicks off next week on PC, PS4, Xbox One

Do I need to buy Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, or Dig Dug yet again? No, not really. But the chance to do so is about to present itself through new ports for PlayStation 4, Steam, and Xbox One, and I can't be held accountable for my late-ni...

Rare Beavis and Butt-Head arcade game now available for public play

Allegedly, there are only a handful of Beavis and Butt-Head arcade machines out there (MTV has one that is only dragged out for tradeshows), and Galloping Ghost Arcade of Brookfield Illinois has one of them. Funnily enough the team nee...

I would totally rock this IKEA arcade cabinet

Pretty snazzy!IKEA Hackers decided to give an arcade cabinet project a go, and it looks like they succeeded. Using a $50 desk, $150 monitor, $100 (all-in) arcade stick, $15 stickers, and a $50 stool, they made the shell of a cabinet that an...

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy arcade is being tested this month

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: All-Star Carnival -- which is totally not an April Fools joke as it was announced weeks ago -- is being tested this month in Japan. Square Enix has announced that tests will begin on April 15 and conclude on April...

Spend your Sunday as a Surf Shogun

I didn't know how badly I needed a violent samurai take on California Games' surfing mini-game until I had one in my life. Farmer Gnome, who you may remember from Fistful of Gun and a bunch of other small experimental games, just released S...

Dissidia Final Fantasy's Alexandria stage is beautiful

Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade has all of its core characters revealed at this point (well, for now, as Square Enix is working on more eventually), but it's also going to pepper in more content over time. That includes the new Alexandria lev...

 
Obscure Video Games
Hard Head 2 is janky as hell; but that's what makes it so fascinating. Released in arcades back in 1991, the game wants to be a Super Mario Bros. clone. Yet for some reason, the developers at SunA decided to throw out every...   read

Dissidia arcade is getting a Final Fantasy IX themed update in March

I don't hear a lot of talk about Final Fantasy IX in general, but there really should be. It's one of the most memorable games in the series, from the colorful cartoony cast of characters to its locations. That includes Alexandria, which is...

FightStick review
Another fighting game, another fightstick. This month Mad Catz is unleashing several sticks into the market, including a sub $100 option, and a few $200+ models. Do you really need an expensive stick to play Street Fighter V? No, but a lot of you are going to buy it anyway.   read
