Arcade games: Gundam Senjou no Kizuna
I don't know if anyone here plays arcade games; I think I already asked in the mailing list and got no answers, but thought I'd give it another try.
I usually play a game called Gundam: Senjou no Kizuna. If you have seen it, you probably know which one it is: you control a giant robot from the series Gundam, for which you need to get into a P.O.D. cockpit and you use handles and pedals for movement and attack; the screen is almost 180o and it really gives you a "real experience" feeling... as much a piloting a giant robot can be real. It's a co-op multiplayer game with 2 teams of 4-8 players each. If you want to see how it looks, there are plenty of videos in youtube, for example this one:
Games are more expensive than other machines, 500 for 2 battles of 250 seconds each (total gameplay is about 15 minutes).
If anyone is interested in giving it a go, we have a 4 people team playing right now on Thursday nights in Akihabara, and I can also go to Akihabara any day during the morning-afternoon.
