House of the Dead 4 gets Japanese rerelease, huge arcade cabinet

When I first played House of the Dead 4 I had a good time, but it's also pretty hard to screw up the House of the Dead franchise. You see zombies, you shoot them, and if you're willing to put in the quarters you'll see the end of the game. They're fun, but they've gotten so formulaic it's hard to get excited about each new game as it comes out. House of the Dead 4 introduces a few new things, like the automatic gun as standard and the shaking motion you use to reload instead of shooting off-screen. It just didn't feel like enough was done to set it apart from the other games. 老域名出售

Now, since Japan gets all the fun stuff, Sega is introducing House of the Dead 4 special in Japanese arcades. I haven't been able to find any pictures of the game cabinet yet, but the additions are crazy. There's now two screens, one in front and one in back, and you sit in a chair that moves with the game. You get blasted in the face with air whenever you get hit. You get graded on how well you play with the second player. While I doubt the game itself is going to go through a ton of revisions, this almost sounds like a ride instead of a game. I'm really hoping they bring this to the Gameworks where I live.

Increasingly we're seeing regular games with insane cabinets like this to try to lure people into arcades, and I have mixed feelings about it. No matter how much I'm spun around or get things blasted in my face (no comments from the peanut gallery, thanks), we're still basically playing the same arcade games we have been for the past ten years or so. Let's see something really new soon.

Of course, I still want to play this, so I'm probably a hypocrite.
