Excerpt: I came across Vampire Night at an old arcade in Old Orchard Beach, Maine.

As a genre of games that essentially lives and dies with the arcade, this spells trouble for the light-gun game. In a turn of events that will no doubt bring joy to light-gun game fans the world over, two of the most prominent light-gun game publishers, Namco and Sega, have pooled their resources and brought in Wow Entertainment, one of the top light-gun game developers, to create Vampire...
