Fans of the Batman needn’t wait any longer for their first glimpse at the new Batman and perhaps more important, the new Batmobile. Director Zack Snyder just released this preview image of the two for his up coming movie Batman vs. Superman in 2016.

The identity of the actor in the shot is not known, it may be Ben Affleck or it could be a stand in.  Who will be playing the new Batman is still unknown.  Whatever the case the suit has been redesigned to give it a sleeker look as well.

Whatever the case this much anticipated movie is sure to take over the box office and the gaming market.  Today one of the most popular games in any arcade if the Batman car racer/shooter that came out last year.  That game allows the player to choose from every Bartmobile through out history.  It is a very cool game.

Game On!

I just had the pleasure of playing the new Batman Arcade Racer game at a Lucky Leo’s Arcade in Seaside Heights Ne Jersey.  What a fun game.  I could not stop playing, I got into it so much.  This game is such a blast to play and so addictive too.

First you sit in a car simulator that allows you to choose of what kind of car you want to drive, the Batmobile or one of the most popular villain vehicles and not only that you can choose from any Batmobile through history, I choose the classic TV series ride; then it is off to the streets. While racing along you are met with many villains shooting at you and it is your job to lock on and fire.  The gun trigger is built into the steering wheel and you fire away.  Make sure you don’t hit any citizens as you will lose life and shorten the ride.

The game is set up in stages to bring in the best return for the dollar.  With 7 stages to go through the excitement grows with each pass.  This game can be set for tickets or just straight play.  I just love it for the straight play as pretending to be Batman is something I have done since I was a child. This game is a sure winner for any arcade as the appeal of batman never wanes and it will bring back the customer over and over to play. Game on!

Video games have come a long way from when I was a kid, back in the day you usually only had one character to choose from, the hero. For example when we played Zelda we could only be Link, but today you can choose to be good or bad. This is very exciting for some as it is always fun to be the bad guy when there are no real consciences for our actions and of course the villains always have the coolest stuff with all those cool gadgets.

Let’s face it, I wouldn’t play a game like Grand Theft Auto if I was to really get arrested at the end of the game and do time, not to mention there would be no repeat business for the brand.  Being the villain is fun.

Although with new games like Batman Car Racer and others like it you can actually be the Joker and drive through Gotham wreaking havoc with all the fun and not a worry at the end of the night that any damage will be done. In addition to the fun as an added bonus these new games offer ticket redemption options that allow the player to get a prize that mirrors the game if the arcade owner so chooses to set it up that way.

Personally I enjoy the Terminator Salvation shooter that allows you to be John Conner and save the word from the machines but now and again I do admit it is nice to destroy the city like the old monsters did in “Rampage”.  Nothing like just beating up the town just to try to destroy it.

Who could forget Capcom Street Fighter that allowed you to be Ryu or Sagat and go to town on your opponents with all the cool abilities that make the villain had like freezing them in time.  Now you can battle between super hero’s and the gang in Marvel vs. Street fighter.  Personally I think the marvel crew would destroy them as the street fighters are human and all, but that is just my opinion.

So whatever your choice Super Hero or Super Villain you are bound to have a good time with all the new games that are coming out.

Game on!
