With over 20 games already announced, it seemed reasonable to me that exA-Arcadia’s content trickle would eventually sputter to a halt. Then Chaos Code and Super Battle Princess Madelyn were revealed today at a press conference in Japan.
If you were worried that the recently more redemption-leaning Sega Amusements wouldn’t bring any surprise video games to IAAPA…boy, do I have a story for you.
This morning, Sega announced via press release that it will debut Mission: Impossible Arcade at IAAPA 2019, marking the first time, to my knowledge, the iconic spy franchise will have graced the coin-op market.
Misson: Impossible Arcade is a four-player, mounted-gun rail shooter in which players assume the roles of IMF trainees and complete...
Good evening, fellow arcade gamers. Today’s news dump isn’t the most timely—especially with more IAAPA 2019 news popping up every day—but I wanted to share these items nonetheless. Prepare for arcade awesomeness.
Indie darling Nippon Marathon is coming soon to exA-Arcadia—bringing with it a host of exciting, exclusive goodies.
Nippon Marathon Turbo Hyper Running went on location test at Ikebukuro Gesen Mikado in Takadanobaba, Tokyo from August 18 to 24, where Japanese players had their first opportunity to explore the latest iteration of the game.
(While I wish so, so dearly we’d get a location test in the United States—something exA-Arcadia has been very quiet about—I can be patient.)
Though I try to make Wilcox Arcade as exclusively “by players, for players” as possible, there are times I like to discuss the business side of…well, the arcade business. This is one of those instances.
This October, to get into the frightening mood, I’m hosting my first full-scale event at the Main Street Tavern game room. The premise is simple: Get the highest score on The House of the Dead, share photo proof of that score with me on social media, and be in the running to win the House of the D...
I’ve been following Glitchbit’s Retro Raccoons (previously known as Tipsy Raccoons) for a long time now. Since the beginning, I’ve been intrigued by the prospect of “The World’s First Drinkcade” and what it can bring to the woefully underserved world of multiplayer arcade party gaming.
Now, while the exact release date is still uncertain and final details are still being hammered out, I do have some minor updates I can share.
First off, Retro Raccoons now has its own official promotional flyer (co...
Let me be upfront: I don’t like sports. Regardless of whether they’re played on fields, courts, diamonds, or computers monitors, hyper-competition isn’t something that excites me. Even so, I can appreciate sports for what they are.
This is my current relationship with esports. While I have no interest in watching gamers duke it out myself—even if they are super-duper skilled—I respect those who can make a living at it. And I respect the specific titles that are popular in this scene.
Seven years after its initial release, Play Mechanix has announced that, in 2020, Big Buck HD will be seeing what may be its biggest update yet.
Big Buck Hunter: Reloaded follows an esteemed legacy of timed content releases, including Duck Dynasty Edition, In Case of Zombies: Doe of the Dead—both making up the “Wild” update—and Buckzilla. This latest offering, though still iterative, is borderline sequel in scope.
Take a gander at the trailer. (For reasons unknown, the Reloaded trailer is currentl...
An annual Golden Tee is as inevitable as the rising and setting of the sun. And while the regularity of the series is not regarded with contempt like, say, 2K Sports and EA Sports releases, I still see it as somewhat of a “crutch” for developer Incredible Technologies.
Yes, the series is wildly popular. Yes, each installment of the current “LIVE” series is full of gameplay enhancements, additional features, and healthy doses of new content. But have you wondered what would happen if one...
Good afternoon, my coin-op comrades. Today, I bring you a gift. Not a particularly good gift—nor a particularly timely one—but a gift just the same.
What is this benign offering, you ask? None other than a new discussion video on the Wilcox Arcade YouTube channel.
My latest video (actually posted on September 23) covers the location test sighting of Tetris Dimensions, a new entry in the long-running block puzzle series from Play Mechanix, Raw Thrills, and I.C.E. (All photos and footage courtesy of...
You know, I make no pretense toward my undying fondness for the exA-Arcadia platform. I think it’s completely kick-butt, I’m highly biased in its favor, and I want it to be a resounding success worldwide.
That being said, I’ve got some more exA news to share, courtesy of our arcade-lovin’ friend JBRPG. So that’s cool.
