I nearly forgot that CAX 2008 took place this past weekend – it’s the best arcade show in the country and here I am forgetting about it. Naturally, I was unable to go but for those that were able to, it sounds like it was absolutely awesome. I am not surprised to hear that The Act (in an original test cabinet nonetheless) was one of the most popular games at the show (which again attests to the fact that this game does have staying power with gamers despite what happened during the game’s test phase) but beyond that having 30,000 sq. ft. of space dedicated to nothing but arcade games is a something that I think that any gamer would enjoy going to. The game selection was staggering, combining both well-known and lesser known classic games into one place(including some very rare games like Quantum & Inferno), along with quite the selection of cocktail games and pinball games. They even had a Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix was there, which I don’t know much about other than that it is supposed to be released on the Xbox 360 & PS3 so it was a little surprising to see it in arcade form.
Here is one review I have seen of the show, it’s pretty good as it has a lot of pictures and there is even a video which I am embedding here (by user DrunkJeff1)
