Hey folks, just wandering if anyone has heard any news on the Legends Gamer? I did that preorder ticket thing from Atgames back in Feb but haven't heard anything since.

Is it a pinball table or PinUp cabinet? (The link doesn't work). Did they mention if it will support usb add-on games like the legends ultimate?

I'm all about space saving and would vastly prefer a vertical, slim depth profile PinUp cabinet for pinball, vertical shmups, and arcade classics.


Fixed the link. Sorry about that. The video just has a specs sheet. Looks like it’ll be an actual pinball table but not full size. The specs list having a physical plunger. From the sounds of it, it’ll likely be very much like the Legends Ultimate - so not quite full-size, but larger than 1Up, with the ability to either do USB connection or stream to it.

AtGames “leaked” the info to some select YouTube people so it’s legit. I love my Legends Ultimate, so I’d definitely be game for something like this.

They haven't posted anything about it on Facebook since early April, but their website still says it's a mid-June release. They're currently running a multi-week gaming contest for current Legends Ultimate with the top prizes being a Legends Ultimate Arcade and a Legends Gamer Standard - so, you'd think since they're planning to give one away as a prize that they'd have them in stock at least close to their estimated release date, right?

Walmart "AtGames Legends Ultimate Home Arcade" pre-order seems to be back on.  Releasing.  GameStop also still taking preorders.  I am guessing there will be a big batch of them to all stores mid-June-ish.

I built Arcade1ups 3, 4, and 5 last weekend. Currently I have
Modded Asteroids
Mortal Kombat
Marvel Super Heros
Space Invaders
And
Star Wars.

Assuming they don't butcher The rosters, I'm planning on getting NBA Jam. Would love to see a driving cab shown tomorrow.

What's the screen size on the legends ultimate?  Looks small in the pics...especially for vertical screen games like galaga.

Their ears must have been burning because I just got an email stating the following:

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your reservation towards a Legends Gamer. We have great news! The Legends Gamer will be shipping out to everyone on our reservation list by the first week in August. We will send out an email towards the end of July for all reservation holders to complete payment. Even better news, for everyone who placed a reservation for the Gamer, you'll automatically be upgraded to the Gamer Pro at no extra cost! 

The Gamer Pro has the same great features as the Gamer, but adds a built-in arcade-quality trackball! That's an additional $50 value. It's our way of saying thank you for your patience and continued support. And, as an even bigger way of saying thanks for your early support of the Gamer, we'll be providing 10 free hours of BYOG time, as well as a coupon code for 70% off Pinball Arcade by FarSight Studios on Steam via Direct2Drive (D2D). 

Happy gaming!

I will be curious to see what they do with the light gun since these don't use CRTs.

 

If it's like the Aimtrak then it will be garbage just like the Aimtrak.  Those are laggy and you literally can't move once you calibrate it or your aim will be off, so they are not very accurate either.  

 

But I'm wondering if it will be something like those Sinden Guns where I believe there is a camera that tracks where you are aiming and it's much more accurate basically like a normal light gun on CRT.  I've never used one but that was the idea behind them and I'm not sure if they are even shipping yet.

These haven’t caught my interest enough to bite yet, but I’m fucking all in on X-Men vs. Street Fighter.

That Ms. PacMan is gorgeous.

 

That LCD Marquee for $200 is a big deal.  When I was pricing out Marquee LCDs a few years ago, they would need to be custom ordered for ~$600-$800.

The light gun kit will probably be like the light gun mods that are already out there and use IR.  People already have had light guns working with the ALU.  The bonus here is the guns are wireless and rechargeable.  Hopefully they give some kind of bracket holster to have it on the side of the cabinet.   The light up marque sounds awesome.  Hopefully it's an edge to edge display or the bezel is super thin so the whole thing can have the marque for whatever game is playing.

 

I'd be curious what the racing wheel and pinball kits actually comprise of... and how they mount to the system.

Ms. Pac Man is BEAUTIFUL! My grandmother is a huge fan, may have to buy it as a Mother's Day gift for 2021 (still a CAGer LOL) 

 

I agree with what someone else said, all of these cabs look awesome but nothing has quite made me grab my wallet yet. Second they announce a Simpons arcade cab it's a full retail purchase.

Ms. Pac-Man was probably my most wanted.  It does look great (and that is my #1 reason for purchasing these - how they look). 

 

I really don't care in the case of Ms. Pac-Man, but the duplication of games across these newly announced cabs is disappointing.  It's ridiculous that if someone cared about a "complete" set of their Marvel games they need three separate cabs, with each really having one unique game.   Although, maybe they just see these as a "bonus" to each cab since I think it's the first time Arcade1Up included a console game.   Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I  think "War of the Gems" and "Mutant Apocalypse" are exclusively SNES games.  

While I want the Marvel Vs. Capcom cab, it then seems silly to allow this Marvel Super Heroes cab to take up space in my game room solely for "The Punisher" (even though that's my favorite game in that cab).

X-Men vs Street Fighter woooo. Crazy that they can get theses games but Capcom won’t put them on new consoles.

Need a Street Fighter Alpha cab and a Marvel vs Capcom 2 cap.

I'm excited for the sinden light gun, assuming it delivers. I used to love using my ACT Labs light guns (the james bond looking pistols) with mame on my old tube tv.

 

I watched the above posted Big Buck Hunter video and there are crosshairs on the screen that move like a wii mote so I'm not going to get my hopes up.

Is the Atgames Legends arcade exactly the same at Walmart as it is in Sam’s Club?

Yeah I just saw the trailer and it is disappointing.  Definitely just an IR thing.

I hear the Sam's version of the arcade is the same, but cheaper (if you already have membership), and also comes with additional games on USB.

They might be the same now, but iirc originally the sams version had a wooden control panel (versus plastic), slightly larger, included a blast dongle, and was $100 ($150 in my case) cheaper.

 

I think they all might be the walmart version nowadays.

Makes your MSH cabinet the leading candidate for a RPI mod (especially since it has the coolest artwork).

Complete agree though. Most confusing game bundling decision ever - I'm still not even exactly sure which games are on which. I've seen like 3 different variants.

Wow that is awesome.  

 

I know that a lot of the light gun games aren't emulated very well on MAME though so I wonder how that will come into play with future light gun games.

 

I have a Maximum Force cabinet now and a bunch of actual arcade PCBs in it but I'm running out of room in there.  I could see myself at one point down the road just converting it into a MAME cabinet if a lot of these light gun games actually end up working properly and/or the Sinden tech is as good as actual light guns.  One downside to the cabinet I have is that I can't pay games like HOTD because they use different tech.  It would be awesome to have one cabinet with literally all light gun games in there, or almost all of them.

Ugh I really have to resist the urge on that Marvel Vs Capcom cab, especially since the main reason I modded mine was for 2. Though if they do 2, Capcom vs SNK, or Street Fighter 3rd Strike I'm gonna preorder instantly.

Still been trying to track down a clearanced TMNT cab but no luck

I have zero interest in any of these, which is great news for my wallet and lack of space. I like what they are doing with pinball but would be far more interested in the Star Wars one- plus I’m almost finished building my own virtual pinball table.

The best news I’ve heard so far was during an interview with retro Ralph- they are still working on a golden tee/silver strike bowling cabinet. That’s a day one instant purchase for me.

There's info out there on the at games legends pinball machine.  Looks like solid specs.  32" main monitor with 1" bezel.  14" monitor (I think) on the back glass for extra stuff.  BYOG with usb built in and all the typical at games stuff.  Sounds like they are trying to do for pinball what they did for home arcade stuff... a one stop box.  Farsight studios is handling the software and built in tables.  It's compatible in BYOG with all the other main pinball software packages out there.  Overall... kind of tempting.  I think it's $600.  pdubs arcade on youtube has videos about it... though it's just specs so far, I think.
