The arcade has traditionally been a place where temporary discomfort and chintziness have been tolerated for a look at the latest technology. Strap yourself into an uncomfortable bucket seat or wield a dirty, poorly calibrated light gun! It’s worth it because it’s at the arcade, and because you wanted to get your quarters’ worth. That trend continues, and I love the ridiculous yet consummate arcade-ness of the 3D glasses on Konami’s newest racing rig.
Akihabara News put up a hands-on, in which they conclude that yes, it is a Konami racing game, and yes, you go fast on tracks and attempt to get first place. I just thought the glasses were the best part of the whole thing.
