Galaxian Theater / Starblade Operation Blue Planet - Potential Release?
« on: January 07, 2019, 06:38:12 AM »
I find this very interesting. I'm currently at work making a Wikipedia-esc site for all things Namco, and while writing an article for Starblade I came across this:

https://arcadeheroes.com/2015/01/19/interview-star-wars-battle-pod/

It's an interview with Kazushi Imoto, the lead producer for Star Wars Battle Pod. What's interesting is that towards the bottom, the interviewer brings up Starblade: Operation Blue Planet and that the ORBS cabinet was the inspiration for the POD cabinet design used for both this game and Mach Storm. Imoto's reply was essentially saying that Starblade: Operation Blue Planet (and other similar canned projects) could be released if there is enough demand for such.

Maybe we could see this getting a release after all...?

Galaxian Theater / Starblade VR

I thought this was pretty interesting. Apparently someone is trying to recreate (or at least emulate) Starblade using
the Oculas Rift to support virtual reality. It looks like an early build, as it doesn't have the crosshair or even
any player movement, but I'm interested into seeing what will become of this (G3 VR anyone?).
