Well... it was announced today that there would be a Halo arcade game made. Not only is it odd that Halo is getting an arcade game, it shares some similarities to Galaxian 3 Theatres  Shocked



While it's not 6 players, and the overall design is nothing like GT-6, it's still got 4 gun yoke controllers, and 2 screens- a very rare sight in today's arcades. The gameplay looks to be somewhat of a hybrid of Air Raid and Galaxian 3? It's got some elements of G3 (the opening cutscene!) but it looks like at some points it will be just a shooting gallery...







And speaking of Air Raid, this could potentially be replacing it at Dave and Busters!



Thoughts on this everyone?

Halo: Fireteam Raven has a fully recorded playthrough by "ReignOfComputer" and gang. There were some flaws with it though, like player 4's crosshair getting jittery.

In my opinion the cabinet has potential, but the game is just another "point'n shooter", which of there are plenty of variations today.

It *has* to be a space-shooter, like Starblade or Galaxian3. But the starwars-days are over, now it's all about FPS games and those quake/unreal clones. Though I'm really hoping for some game house, perhaps namco, to make space-shooter worthy of being called a sequel to either Starblade or Galaxian3.

... watching that HALO video it seems like a good game. Some good space-action there too.
