jp StarBoat

StarBoatSega announced StarBoat release for November 24 but it is available since yesterday at the same time as another Sega betting game: Star Horse 3! There's no horses here but boats ... The principle is very similar to Star Horse: a giant screen broadcasting the race and each player has his own seat equipped with a screen. Here the player can acquire boats races, customize them (parts, colors, decorations), train and manage the careers of drivers, whom he can set the appearance as he wishes, and of course makes bets on boat races. Players with some experience will be surprised to be able to face Kenji Hatano, the main character of Monkey Turn, a racing boat themed manga by Katsutoshi Kawai. StarBoat runs on RingEdge, from 6 to 11 satellites can be connected to the giant screen, it uses ALL.Net network and it is compatible with Aime card and Bana Passport.

be New arcade opening in Brussels

New arcade opening in BrusselsSince the closing of the Family Games Gallery 5 years ago, there was no place to have fun in Brussels any more. Things will change tomorrow with the opening of a new arcade! But beware, this time, this is not the place for a Sunday family day because versus fighting is the theme. This is not surprising when one considers that Kenpachi (representing Europe on SSF4AE and SSF2X at Tougeki 2011) is behind this initiative. There are no fewer than 7 Astro City and 4 cabinets with HD screens on which you can fight each others on Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Street Fighter III 3rd Strike, Super Street Fighter II X, The King of Fighter XIII, The King of Fighter '98, Hokuto no Ken and Garou Mark of The Wolves. The price is 50 cents for 1 or 2 credits depending on the game. The arcade is located at Rue Haubrechtsstraat No. 8 in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean/Sint-Jans-Molenbeek, just steps away from the Compte de Flandre/Graaf van Vlaanderen subway station (lines 1 and 5). The doors will open at 14:30 tomorrow. On this occasion, it will be possible for only €5 to have infinite credits for all games until 2:00! Food and beverages will be available and the famous French player/commentator Ken Bogard will attend the party. Players will therefore be of a very high level, if you are looking for a fight, you're at the right place!
