    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Today, we're announcing the comeback of 2 classic SEGA arcade games in one package — Gunblade NY and LA Machineguns, exclusively on the Wii this fall.

    Gunblade NY and LA Machineguns have been adapted from the original arcade machine games to make full use of the Wii controller. While interacting and shooting on the streets of New York and Los Angeles the Wii Zapper compatibility provides even more immersion for the players. Gunblade NY and LA Machineguns Arcade Hits Pack also contains new features such as the Chain Combo System which enables even higher scores, and the Unlockable Weapon Toggle which uses game ranking to unlock hidden extras such as wide shot, rapid fire and heavy shot.

    True to the original arcade games, Gunblade NY and LA Machineguns is set in the airspace above some of the United States’ most well-known locations. Players will be able to combat android invaders in New York City with their Gunblade helicopter gunship or take their flying gunship to battle a new force of android enemies in some of America's most well known locales such as Los Angeles, Alcatraz, Yosemite and Las Vegas.

    Just in case you need a refresher on these games, see the video below.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    I remember playing (At least) LA Machineguns at the arcades. While they don't have the upmost depth, I wouldnt mind taking them home with me.

    2 Player with this will probably be a blast, aside from losing the joy of stealing your friend's (or soon to be enemy's) quarters.

    Although personally, I would've preferred a port of... say... Virtua Cop?

    Virtua Cop's been ported to death.

    I'm waiting for House of the Dead 4. I mean for crying out loud it has SHAKE THE GUN TO RELOAD and SHAKE THE GUN TO NOT GET HIT BY THE ZOMBIE. It's like BEGGING for a Wii Port.

    How about.... Typing of the Dead?

    Hardcore mode, you have to use an onscreen keyboard with the Wiimote.

    Unfortunately, a Wii port would have terribly severe graphical cutbacks. In fact, I'm not sure if some of the more crowded scenes would even be possible.
