Couple of more arcade artwork lithophanes(both 200mm long).
I like the Gravitar, but the Outrun needs work(SEGA logo and the colour transition on the car)

Theyre CR2032's alright, have always been on my MVS boards. I don't remove them. Most of them actually still worked!

They are rechargeable batteries and very prone to leaking unfortunately, the majority of dead MVS boards can be attributed to battery rot and SRAM failures I reckon.

You can replace them with Cr2032 coin cells (with holders) but the recharge circuit needs to be disabled, useful guides here

I only thought Typing Of The Dead was a home Dreamcast release but it was in the arcade also! Madness

I think it's cool to see arcade games that aren't typical buttons or guns. Although I'm sure they're a pain for repairs considering how often regular shooters are broken at arcades. I recently learned that there was also a PS2 port of it in 2004 and a sequel based on HotD3 for PC only.

There's also apparently 3 versions of the original game in Japan, TotD 2003 which has Master Mode and an online Expert Vs Mode and TotD 2004 which has a kid mode.

And finally there's a Typing of the Dead Overkill. I recently tried Overkill for PS3 on PS Now, I didn't like it very much.

My hands still twitch a little at the mere mention of Typing of the Dead. Fantastic (and very evil) game.

Passed a cash for gold shop today, spotted a few blue dvd cases in the window so went in for a look.

10 minutes of flicking through shovel wear and soccer manager games and €20 later and walked out with this

Armored Core 2 has one of my favourite intros. Hard not to like the sound effects of the laser blade and overboost.

I never really got into 4:FA or 5, had them both but never time to play them. Surprised there's no mention of one for current gen, I believe they said there's one in the works. Easy to see why they aren't focusing on it though with the success of their other games.
