X-Men Arcade 1992
Today I’m taking it back to the old-school with one of my favorite classic arcade cabinets of all time.
This epic arcade cab was release by konami in 1992. It extremely stood out from other arcade cabinets with its 6 controllers and 2 huge screens.
I consider X-Men Arcade one of my favorite side-scrolling beat ’em up games of all time. For its time the story and game-play was top of the line. The 6 player action that filled the screen was always chaotic when you had a good group feeding this monster of a machine quarters. The many boss fights amazed me at 10 years old.
I loved X-men at the time this cab launched. Both the comic books and the cartoon series. Anytime you came across this machine when it first came out there was a gang of kids standing around it drooling with amazement.
I found this game online to my astonishment. To further my joy the version I found is 100% compatible with my wired Xbox 360 controller. The game got slightly glitchy at times, that isn’t just the quality of the video. The glitches seemed to work to my advantage because somehow I got to control 4 players at once, which made my play-through a bit quicker. It takes forever to upload a half hour long video to YouTube. The minor glitches in no way slowed down my enjoyment of playing this classic.
