What game do you like most? Play it on this arcade machine

Of course I have a soft spot for custom built arcade machines, and although this one uses a prebuilt cabinet it’s hard to go past.

Over-Clock UK member, Mayhem has unveiled his creation, Project: C-MACC (Complete – Multi Arcade Console Computer System) – capable of playing just about any game known to man.

The idea of the project is quite simple, It is to house every known Emulated and Non Emulated Console, Computer, Arcade system in one cabinet.

That is My aim.

That’s right, the cabinet houses a decent-spec pc, capable of emulating basically anything more than a generation or two old. But for the modern stuff there is no substitute – the cabinet is crammed with a PS3, Xbox, Wii, PSP, and even a Nintendo DS.

engadget is reporting that Mayhem sunk around $9000US into the project.

Certainly Impressive, but would go to those measures to get your game on?

Playing on Playstation 3

Red Dead Revolver - I paid about $1000 for my launch model PS3, so I guess it's time I get some use out of that emotion chip crammed inside. I remember Red Dead Revolver looking rather good when it was released, and despite the low resolution and odd blurring (that I attribute to playing on a HD set) the game holds up well. It looks good despite these graphical limitations because the art direction is so precise and awesome. And it isn't just the art direction, the music, dialogue and set design (for some reason, set seems a more fitting word than level) all work in tandem to recreate an iconic Wild West atmosphere. Red Dead Revolver doesn’t aim to recreate life in the Wild West, it allows our imagination to take over and populates the locale with legendary men and their legendary stories.

Playing on iPhone

edge - Well I never thought I'd consider playing a game on iPhone as actually gaming, but edge has turned me around. The game is built for the iPhone. Sure, it could be ported, but the elegance of what has been created is astounding, it boggles the mind and makes me wonder what amazing gems we'd receive if current gen consoles weren't clones of eachother.

Playing on PC

Sins of a Solar Empire, Demigod, Generals - Zero Hour - It may be a temporary effect as I slowly reintroduce the PC into my gaming diet, but it seems every title I’m excited to play on the platform is either a strategy game, or a cheap indie game. PC gaming isn’t dead, it’s just restricted to titles that require complex input or a pointing device, and games that couldn't be developed or distributed on other platforms. I guess that’s part of the reason the AppStore is so far a success, there were a lot of indie devs stuck on PC for lack of a better alternative.
