A common complaint I hear about new arcade game releases is that “the game isn’t anywhere near me.” It’s valid in many situations but in case you live near a Dave & Busters, then it’s becoming less of a phrase one can use. It’s not been a secret that Dave & Busters has been able to flex their muscle when it comes to promoting new arcade content across their 57 locations across the US. They served as a launch platform for Adrenaline Amusement’s Infinity Blade FX as well as Namco’s Pac-Man Battle Royale Deluxe. Now they are allowing players to experience ten new games at all of their locations. This includes redemption content like LAI’s Speed of Light, Benchmark’s Monster Drop, ICE’s Ice Age, and Jennison Entertainment’s SpaceBallz, it includes one video arcade title and a neat air hockey table we’ve discussed before. The game is Raw Thrill’s Dirty Drivin’ and the air hockey table is Barron Game’s Quad Air that has been skinned specifically for D&B. If you have a D&B near you then this is a great opportunity to get a chance to play one of these new games.
Speaking of Dirty Drivin’, here is a new review of the game that has already garnered a nice bit of attention, by Classic Game Room. He is going to be reviewing several other Raw Thrills games in the near future. also in case you have forgot what the Quad Air is, I’ve also included a video of that below (although at the time I filmed it, it was called Pirate King)
Actually as I was typing this I caught that CGR just added a H2Overdrive review to their channel. May as well share that here just ‘cuz.
