Welcome to The Arcade Hunters!

Hey folks! Nick from the Arcade Hunters here! Sorry I haven't been updating the site. Since C.R posted his mailbag and was nice enough to post links to our site I figured I'd better update our website along with the video for the few of you that still visit here. Sorry for the lack of updates and videos, since the new job I haven't had a lot of time to go out and get gameplay footage or tours of new places. Hopefully I will soon!

For those of you coming in from CR's video...welcome! I was in Toys R Us YEARS ago and I saw that Samhain and Janine figure and the first thing I thought of was all of CR's videos he did on Familiar Faces. At the time they wanted WAY too much for it but a few months later I saw it again on the clearance rack and picked it up where it had been under my bed in the bag till I finally mailed it to him. Sadly USPS damaged the hell out of the box and it cost me more to ship the toy to him then it did when I bought it.

Really glad to see he enjoyed the gift!

For those of you still reading, be sure to check us out over on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram where we post weekly. We've been working on new episodes of our Podcast as well! Hopefully I'll get more videos out for you guys to enjoy soon! Till then, take care!

Stern Pinball's Ghostbusters Pro (V1.05) Gameplay

This past Thursday Stern Pinball released a new revision to Ghostbusters. This new update included some balance updates, new speech that also includes a "Family Mode" and some new features like the "River of Slime hurry up shot" Sadly I wasn't able to show off much of the game because of just how hard the one my friend Dave has setup. I've seen a lot of people complain about the metal wire ramps they put into the game and it's something I also noticed on the machine I played at Pioneer's Lounge. When the ball hits the edge of the metal on the ramp, it won't deflect, but it'll loop around going down the left or right drain. Most of the time I'm not quick enough to nudge the table, but I've had the game promptly drain for all three turns with this. It's something I'll have to check message boards to see if other people are complaining about but until then it just further adds to the challenge of the game.

Also, I was a special guest on the Anime of Yesteryear Podcast! Dustin and I talked a lot about Japanese arcade games, Japanese arcades and the main topic, Initial D. Dustin was able to rescue an original Initial D (Stage 1) machine from being scrapped and he talks about his journey trying to fix it with getting everything to properly work. Make sure you check it out!
