Here are your first pictures from the IAAPA 2013 Event. More to come later today. As mentioned in previous posts I am not there personally so having to rely on accounts from those that are at the show.

Namco showing off Mach Storm with a cool tarmac style booth. From what I am being told Mach Storm is one of the most popular games on the floor and that the Namco booth is packed. Also that the Alpine Racer plays really well.

Here’s Namco’s new Alpine Racer getting plenty of love.


Pac-Man Smash is there, we’ve covered this one before but they weren’t shying away from promoting it


Raw Thrills: Here is Batman including Steve Ranck who I recently interviewed about this and one of the “booth babes” there to promote it as well. Via Specular’s Twitter



Sega: Here’s that huge Optimus Prime statue that they have been talking about in press releases. As mentioned last night, Transformers: Human Alliance is setup at the Dave & Busters in Orlando, FL and is available for arcades to pick up now. Via Sega’s Facebook page


Finally, a tradeshow where there is a legitimate Plants Vs. Zombies Arcade game setup to play. (Example of a tradeshow where that wasn’t the case)


InJoy Motion/ Barron Games – Here’s Allied Tank Attack being played at the Barron Games booth


Jersey Jack Pinball: Their booth is loaded with Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary Edition Pinball machines. Via JJP’s Facebook


Stern Pinball – Showing off Star Trek Pinball and a Metallica. The photo lens could use a wipe…via Stern’s Facebook


Stay tuned for more, I should have a large batch of photos from The Stinger Report later today.

    That’s not a dirty lens–that’s the transporter beaming the tables down. Duh.

    It see that Mach storm has a skull and crossbones on the final cabinet design. Has there been more info whether rawthrills developed alpine racer HD update?
    Pacman smash is always being played on at my local arcade, it’s quite the crowd pleaser

        Oh it’s great especially for an arcade game in terms of graphics. It’s like all open field driving fast in the city and shooting with the buttons on the wheel. It’s brilliant and it’s not like any other driving game you usually play at the arcade that’s a circuit. This ones different 🙂
