We had a little more to share from the AAMA Gala that took place a short time ago in Lincolnshire, IL and as promised, here you are.
First is Sega’s latest light-gun shooter Operation G.H.O.S.T., which we have already mentioned as being a sequel to the original GHOST Squad and sporting features such as a unique multi-colored LED targetting system and a speaker in the scope of the gun that issues voice commands to the player. This is not the final release version of the game so changes could be made to it by that time – one thing I noticed right off the bat is that the gun holsters in these pictures does differ from the image shown recently on Sega’s Amusement website. I actually like this design better, it seems to be a better way of holding the guns in place. Of course there is no system that will guarantee an operator that people won’t leave the guns lying on the floor (I’ve lost track of how many times I pick guns up from various games I have) but the easier it is for people to holster them in the first place, the better. Also you heard it here first : I have confirmed with Sega that Operation G.H.O.S.T. runs on Sega’s
RingEdge RingWide hardware. Apologies for the confusion as I was given that information from a high-up source in Sega but I’ve confirmed with several sources within Sega that it is in fact RingWide.
Sega also had some other products at the show they brought back to show off.
This also was the event where Raw Thrills’/Specular Interactives Dirty Drivin’ was announced, as we discussed (picture via AAMA)
Next up was the latest offering by Adrenaline Amusements, Flight Control FX. This is scheduled for a November release, I actually didn’t expect to see this until IAAPA. As a brief catch-up in case you missed this, it’s the big screen version of a popular game which is found on some smartphones and other touch screen devices like the iPad. (Picture via AAMA)
Also don’t forget to check out what Namco had there, in case you haven’t seen it already, which included new cabinets for Pac-Man Battle Royale and Deadstorm Pirates.
