Crapshoot: Sega’s awful holographic arcade game

From 2010 to 2014 Richard cobbett wrote Crapshoot, a column on rolling the dice to bring random dark games back to light. This week, quite possibly the fastest extinction ever – an arcade feel with no shadow of a chance to be brought back.

There has been a lot of talk lately about 3D, Oculus which brings back virtual reality, Retina screens and CAVEs and even Microsoft which patents the first holodeck. Will they make the difference? Perhaps. But as fun as it is to look to the future, I can’t help but remember the arcade machine that made the lifespan of the instants of the original VR feel like to have to watch a documentary about raising whelks on the first day of summer. In the saddle, cowboy. We’re off for a shootout at the Not Even OK Corral.
