The latest edition of HardCore Gamer is out and the arcade entry this month is America’s Army. Of course it has plenty of other excellent console related reviews which are good as well but it’s always good to point out where arcades get recognition. Next month expect to see a NASCAR review. Also mentioned in this issue is the arcade version of Time Crisis 4 which you may have heard is headed to the PS3. What would you like to see in a future issue of HGM?
BTW I caught a mention of arcades in the latest issue of Gameinformer (the one with Ghostbusters on the cover) and as usual they did little research on the subject so it ends up being something negative – to the point of making it sound as though arcades are totally dead and that there are no new releases coming out. Funny, I imagine that all the people that recently attended IAAPA may have something to say about that. But maybe I’m expecting too much from a ‘big’ magazine like GI, I mean it’s just so darned hard to research what’s going on in arcades when you’ve got plenty overhyped console games to write reviews about that your advertisers are paying for.
