Get A Clue – Vidjagame Apocalypse 392

As November begins and we’re faced with the mystery of who our next President will be, it’s as good a time as any to lose ourselves in the fictional mysteries of our favorite detective games with Octobug developer Eric Bailey. Then we talk about Sega selling off its arcade business, Arcade1up introducing its first sit-down driving cabinet, and the historical settings you’d like to see horror games in.

Question of the Week: What’s a classic arcade game you’d like to see get an Arcade1up(-style) re-release?

  1. HELL YES! I am so glad Ace Attorney is #1 Surprised Hotel Dusk didn’t make the top 5…or possibly Deja Vu. The AA soundtrack for all the games is stellar! I’d also say the Miles Edgeworth games are more on the detective angle than the original series.

    1. the whole DA has the chips stacked against them is loosely based on how Japanese court systems did work. Please don’t judge the Capcom Unity forum members onto the entire AA fandom. We’re good people in general.

  2. Question of the Week:
    My very favorite arcade game is Tempest. It’s a very simple game in terms of gameplay. You turn a dial to make a little spaceship thing run along the edges of a geometric shape, shooting at enemies rushing up toward you in forced perspective 3D, all in beautiful, timeless vector graphics. It’s also really hard to actually be able to play. The vector graphics displays are hard and expensive to maintain as is the spinner control. For someone looking to build a MAME machine, the cheapest of cheapo spinners will run you close to $100, but the game just doesn’t feel right without it. Along with Tempest, you could include other spinner games like Arkanoid, Gigas, and Cosmic Chasm.

  3. QOTW: I would love to see a combo light gun machine with Time Crisis and perhaps my favorite arcade machine of all time: Point Blank. A close second would be a fully 3 player Ivan “Ironman” Stewart’s Super Off Road.

  4. QOTW: I would really like to have a Tekken arcade machine. It was one of my favorite games as a kid and I and my brother would play that for hours together. I would also like a Simpsons game just to have.

  5. QOTW: I would like to see a rerelease of Virtua Fighter. It was one of my favorite arcade games and me and my brother would spend hours playing that together. Maybe it could be bundled with Virtua Racing.
