Summary: Last year I kicked off a project where I had every intention of going through my entire game collection, from the 8-bit days through now, to find how many instances of the same game popped up in various game collection releases. I thought it would make for a neat feature.
Summary: After weeks of waiting for overpriced packs, the Capcom Arcade Cabinet is finally complete. And while I may have complained about Capcom's aggressive pricing strategy, the overall package is ultimately worth a look.
Summary: As a game hub, Capcom Arcade Cabinet delivers the goods. It's a good looking program that is easy to use and packed full of games. This 1986 pack is wildly uneven. While Trojan and Side Arms remain incredibly playable, Legendary Wings drags this three-pack down.
Summary: As a game hub, Capcom Arcade Cabinet delivers the goods. It's a good looking program that is easy to use and packed full of games. This 1985 pack is by far the highlight of the 15 announced games, featuring Gun.Smoke, Section Z and Ghosts 'n Goblins.
Summary: As a game hub, Capcom Arcade Cabinet delivers the goods. It's a good looking program that is easy to use and packed full of games. Too bad this first pack of games isn't more impressive. 1943: The Battle of Midway is great fun, but Avengers left me cold. On the other hand, Black Tiger is free ...
Conclusion: While I wasn't overly thrilled with the 1984 pack in comparison to the others released by Capcom, I'm still pleased to see some arcade classics come home to modern day consoles. Keep bringing 'em, Capcom.
