GTI Expo 2008 round up with many new games and SF2 the casino game

Shaggy May 16, 2008 7

Sega was not the only company to have an arcade show recently, as the Game Time International Expo 2008 kicked off in Taiwan last week. Thanks to forum user Molloy, he provided us a link to a thread on killercabs.com that featured some pics from the show from a user there named kenji. As always if you want to see the full image, just click on the thumbnails below.

One game that I was particularly interested in was Power Boat by IMOtion. They had a video of the game at ASI (which I have been trying to get a hold of since March) and it definently has changed since then – the cabinet is different and I know that they were working on tweaking the gameplay a little more to make it like HydroThunder. I’m not sure when this will come out but a modern HydroThunder-llike game with a motion base cabinet will probably do well in arcades. Is it me or do these look a little like RaceTV cabinets? Also they have made a new cabinet for Panzer Elite Action. I hope to have some more on Power Boat here shortly.

IGS was there in force, showing off games that I’d love to see them release through American Alpha, their US branch but most likely I’d have to import these games. They had the scrolling fighter Oriental Legend 2 there and Pirate Revenge which we’ve mentioned before. Also Speed Driver 2 was there, one of the few IGS games to use full 3D.

More after the post break including the Street Fighter 2 the Casino game!

Konami’s Jubeat was at the show. We’ve discussed this one before, I just wonder if they’ll attempt to release it in the US/UK anytime soon.

Tank Adventure by Tecway Developments was at the show, it reminds a little bit of Sega’s tank game from ’94 (which name escapes me at the moment). I wonder if they have fixed the frame rate issues on this one – if so it looks like a fun game (I posted a video of Tank Adventure some time ago)

Here’s an interesting one called Go Go Jockey. I’m not sure who makes it, perhaps IGS since they have another game with GoGo in the title but it’s next to Drum Party which is a Tecway Developmets game. Either way, until someone makes a motion sensing horse riding controller for the Wii, this is certainly fun to see.

Here’s the Delta32 cabinet which was shown at AOU2008 I believe. Looks like a nice new candy cab.

We can’t forget Tekken 6, which is feasible to show everywhere but the US and the UK.

And finally we have a look at the Street Fighter II Action, which is made for casinos – I saw a press release about this a few weeks ago but didn’t post anything since they didn’t bother to include a picture of it on the site. I assume that this is what it was that Cryptologic was talking about.

    Killercabs.com is a great spot. I’m looking forward to ordering a cabinet from them when I get out of college.

    I laugh at the man named “Molly”.

    You guys should do a post on this pirate game with the wheel. What the hell is it?

    Pirates Revenge is a redemption video game, and has been launched in the US and UK – it involves the player steering his pirate ship avoiding enemy and accruing points (tickets).

    Whoops, sorry about that Molloy – slip on the keyboard (and I’ll blame it on a nasty head cold I have today πŸ˜› )

    We did a post on Pirate Revenge back in December. I think the cabinet looks awesome

    I haven’t had a chance to play the game though – I had no idea that it came out in the US.
