Rambo in the Arcades

by Paul

It’s something I’ve written about here and I think it needs revisiting from time to time, that is, the sad state of the American Arcade. Where once the landscape was dominated by places full of the newest and coolest videogames, now there exists only pockets of games that really mostly on gimmicks to part you from your dollars. The last bastion of the arcade outside of Dave and Busters here in the states is the nation of Japan. There they are getting a new Rambo game of all things:

The only real detail uncovered so far is that the game features a Anger System that allows John Rambo to kill better the angrier he gets, which is kind of like the Hulk with less green. Sigh, let’s hope that this puppy gets brought over here for our sad arcades.
