I used to play Outrun 2 in my local cinema before Jaguar knocked it down so their factory could have a bigger car park... -_-

Whilst I was recently on holiday in Florida, I kept a keen eye out for any Arcade cabs I could find. The hotel where my GF's parents were staying at had a good few. I'll see if I can get some photo's up in a day or two (we took a lot).
In that hotel lobby alone there was (off the top of my head)

Kept me entertained
The REAL entertainment came when I visited Disney's: DisneyQuest.
It's basically a 5 floor building with various different types of Arcade style games on each floor.
One floor was dedicated SOLELY to arcade racing games - mostly new ones. It was AMAZING though. Again, I have photo's so I'll be sure to share them out here when I get them all uploaded to my computer etc. Although we have one "down the road" in Blackpool (Coral Island), I managed to play on H2Overdrive again whilst there. So good.
I'll add more info when I see those pics as a refresher...
"One of the FINEST third party 3D fighters on ANY 32-bit system!"
"Pick this one up and I PROMISE you won't regret it. After two polarising [Toshinden] games, they finally got everything RIGHT. Call it a case of third time lucky, if you will!"
"MORE Saturn owners should take greater PRIDE in this exclusive…"
The first time I went to Disney Quest I loved it! The second time I went two year later, not so much. All the games were the same but a lot were broken. I still enjoyed it though but spent most of my time on the basketball games.
XYBOTS uses the same idea aka left/right twist stick. An alternative is to just use an 8 way joystick and add the two left/right switches in the stick as dedicated buttons. As XYBOTS is 3D and an early form of DOOM it's easier to understand the implementation of it and works well.
There was no need for it really with some games as Ikari Warriors later showed with it's great ports made for home, such as the (PAL) Commodore 64 version.
None of the Ikari ports are really the same game though. Ikari is one of the boards I have, and I'd forgotten just how intense the game is, a true classic. Overall I'd say SAR is the best game though, badass, gory, and atmospheric as hell. Talk about a forgotten gem.
Already have, my original Sega issued floppy was actually an NOS conversion kit. The system has a backup feature built-in. You can make as many copies as you want, it's the battery backed CPU that's the main issue really.
Most Sega games can be revived with a CPU and unencrypted ROM swap. However here it's a little different as no ROM chips, it's data on a floppy disk and uses a custom format. Also the Sys24 is fairly unpopular, so not much demand. I do believe the hack is done it's just a matter of the floppy disks getting made. I seem to have found someone that might be able to do it though. Worst case Scramble Spirits doesn't use a suicide CPU, so can always convert it to that if nothing else. Would love to have hacked floppies for GainGround as well, as that game is sublime, but costs an insane amount especially for the Japanese version (2-players, world version is 3).
