New arcade games in database
on 5/2/2011 1:38:13 AM
Midway's War Gods has been added to the database.
There were two vertical shooters I remember playing back in the late 80s but could not remember their names. With the help of KLOV, I was able to discover them all over again. Ajax (which is already in the database) and MX 5000 (which I have now added to the database). Both by Konami. Ah the memories.

5-3-11 Edit: Brand new game added. Pump it up Fiesta EX 2011.

Flurry of vintage pinball machines have been added to the database! Instead of describing them one by one, just check out Village Arcade in St. Peter's, PA. There are many electromechanical machines that so far are not found anywhere else... yet!

A whole flurry of retro pinball machines was added to the database, however instead of listing them one by one, the newest entries into the Aurcade database can be found here.
http://www.nationalpinballmuseum.org/museum/machines.html
What I like about this list is that every machine listed here links directly to http://www.IPDB.org for more detailed information about that game. All of the new pinball machines added to the list were from the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.
On a side note, the very rare Capcom pinball machines can be found here too!

Three new games have hit the list.

Devastators: 1988 Konami shooter.

Raven: 1986 pinball machine co-created by Gottlieb and Premier

Wheel of Fortune: A brand new redemption game co-created by Konami, Raw Thrills, and Playmechanix. Features a video touchscreen and a giant wheel.

Edit: Also added salt and pepper to Silverball Mania, Gladiator, and Flip Flop pinball submissions. Just to make them a little more professional looking.

Just added:

Megatouch Force 2005

A local laundromat just added this in, and noticed we had 2004 and 2007, but not 2005. Not sure if there are 2006s anywhere yet, as that edition has yet to be added. Will add it if I see it.

Bally: Silverball Mania and Flip Flop
Gottlieb: Gladiators

This is more of a siting than anything.

Mortal Kombat (2011) by Netherrealm is gaining popularity in arcades. This game was only available in consoles, however savvy arcade owners are creating cabinets of this game for arcade play. It is catching on. Be on the lookout for this game at your favorite arcade!

6-3-2011 EDIT: Also, be on the look out for TRON: Legacy by Stern Pinball slated to come out some time this year.

NASH,

(If I may call you nash)

Donkey King jr..is a bootleg chip of DKJ that "some" arcade owners" or route people put into DKJ to give their patrons a "different experience"..kinda like fast Pac man or "unbeatable SBM.

I saw two back in the day...and wasn't impressed...I don't think we shout add or count bootlegs or "alternate versions of games...like "Mr. OO", but that decision is not up to me.

I can understand your concern about not including bootleg or hacked versions of arcade games in the database. I can think of three reasons why they should.
1) KLOV does include them in their listing.
2) Just because some hacks are not as good as others doesn't make them any less worthy of being in the database. Can you imagine if we didn't include Crazy Kong? Pac-Man Plus? Street Fighter II Rainbow Edition?

(soapbox time!)
3)Some of the best arcade games in the world were made as a result of hacks and bootlegs of other games. Ms. Pac-Man came into being because of hacks like Mr. Otto. Crazy Kong actually hit arcades before Donkey Kong did.

We just need to explain it saying "yes, this is a bootleg. Here's the game they bootlegged off of". Now, granted, not every bootleg needs to be in there. 200 bootleg variations of Street Fighter would clog up the database and make it that much harder to search for your favorite game. Best piece of advice would be if you actually see it in an arcade, it's good enough for Aurcade.
