3$ for a lousy game each. 
Not gonna happen

Edited by Shaneman

Haha! I also have a Jungler room! WITH the 80s theme at that! 

Posted by MildMolasses

I love me some astrosmash and its the only game I bought 
Although, yeah, it's not that good

I'm so getting SpyHunter once it's up on GameRoom.

Jungler looks really gross. 

Posted by neon321

This just confirms that gaming didn't really start until the NES generation.. all of these looks terribly unfun.

Edited by Lind_L_Taylor

Man I don't have time to play all of that old stuff.  Looks like a waste of time.
$90?  Oh man...no way! Never.

Am I right in saying that the guy who made Yar's Revenge also made E.T ?

These aren't worth the money.  If Microsoft sold them as bundles for 400 points, I may bite, but I'm not paying $3 for a game that will be fun for 5 minutes.

it's free to download, so i don't see why!

Crystal castles was fun to watch.

All Jungler Arcade!  Coming to a city near you.

Posted by Akel

they sure spent quite a bit.

Posted by FalseDeity

It's pretty lousy that if you already own classic arcade games on XBLA, you'll have to buy them twice to use them on Game Room. Not to mention pay extra to use on Xbox AND Windows? Right, people will just continue using emulators when they get ripped off like that.

I can see some of the later gen arcade titles being worth $3 but if anyone pays $3 for Atari VCS "Combat" or even the classic "Adventure", then they're just fucking nuts.

Okay, played with it, got some easy achievements that didn't require any cash but in the end, I am not investing any money into it. I loved my Atari back in the day but I see no reason to pay $3 for a single game. Bundles would be a great idea. I played through the one time allowed demo of each game and nothing screamed out "BUY ME AND FEEL ENTERTAINED!" Fun but it didn't feel like a return in investment. I will have to see what comes out in the future but for right now, got my free achievements and that is all. 
Oh and by the way, you apparently picked a random designed character on the PC version. My Xbox Avatar never showed up. Bummer.

This seems like it'd be cool, if I were at all interested in any of these games.

i don't think i'll get game room

Jesus.  How long is this video?!

Posted by coaxmetal

If giantbomb made an "Avoid Spikes" t-shirt in that font, I would buy it.

Posted by IceTrey87

I don't get it.  This seems really expensive and you still have to use tokens to play the games?  Sega just released a disc with like 40 games on it including Phantasy Star 2, 3, 4, streets of rage, Sonic 1, 2, 3, and kid chameleon.  And I can just play most of these games on emulators.  This just seems like a bunch of games that should be released on a disc for ten dollars.

Posted by Shaneman

You can either use your tokens for a single play after using your free demo, so you can buy the game for $3, and play it as much as you want.

Posted by John1912

Well the games all pretty much suck ass, but I really love that tvirtual arcade set up they got going for it.  Gives it a nice nostolgic feel.

Every time Jeff says JUNGLER it cracks me up, and I don't know why

"I totally had a copy of combat 2, it's bad" haha

Posted by Nux

I think this quick look sold me on game room and Jungler.
Posted by Roomrunner

Man, I gotta give it up to Giant Bomb.  best website out there.  To spend all that money just for a quick joke in a video to show a room full of Jungler arcade machines... that is showing some love.  Thanks!

Posted by dylanderoo

Game room is oke, but i got some messed up server issues. spen like 240 on an arcade game and it didnt load. 

Posted by Levio

Wow, Combat looks INTENSE.
But man, I would just spawn camp that big plane forever.

Posted by Levio

I think the arcade would have to pay ME to play Crystal Castles.

Posted by Kratch

I'm just going to throw this out there.  I would love some weekly or bi-monthly "Jeff's Picks" or some such thing on new Game Room releases.  Maybe you guys could just pick three or four favorites from the new releases every once in a while and do Quick Looks.  Either way, I don't think that I'm alone in wanting some Game Room guidance.  Damn, you could call it "Game Room Guidance!"

Posted by Tarsier

i tried this earlier and it forced me to download the game packs, i did that, and then half way through the loading bar it froze and i had to reboot the game. when i came in the second time i looked for the games which apparently came with the packs and they were nowhere to be found. piece of shit.

Posted by rjayb89

I installed this, then immediately uninstalled it in favor of the 'Firewalker' DLC for Mass Effect 2.

Looks like fun - Too expensive.

Edited by fooflighter737

Well after trying it I may uninstall it..I was excited about it but the interface is Wonky and Janky...
I would have preferred a 3rd person "actually walk around" rather than the perceived movement of travel...
I would have also preferred 1 large arcade room sectioned off with larger areas to contain certain motifs...
Live Arcade IMHO does retro way better than Gameroom...and while you'll never see Outlaw on Live Arcade, a 1 play of the demo gives me my nostalgia fix for the next 20 years...I remember thinking when playing these games...man wouldn't it be cool if the game looked like the box-art..well now they do in 2010 and I can't justify the price tag for a couple minutes of "gee remember when"...neat idea to a niche but failed in the execution

Posted by Kowbrainz

Looks awesome, although I dunno whether or not (or how much) I want to buy. Have MAME stashed away somewhere already. Guess I'd be a little more motivated to actually play these games if I bought them but even then, it's tough to say.

In the Jungler the mighty Jungler, the giantbomb sleeps tonight!

Isn't this just great? We have Game Room on Xbox and Steam and GOG on PCs. Old games will never die! That's awesome.

Posted by dudeglove

That looks a lot of fun.

Posted by MindChamber

man watching combat  brings back memories

Posted by dantebk

Oh man I should totally buy all 30 games.  Oh man that is a terrible idea.

Posted by darkdragonsoul99

just in case no one noticed the big plane bullet did go through that gap in combat  at 12:09

Posted by Jeremy_x

Everybody, there is a killscreen coming up, if anyone wants to see...

Posted by fillmoejoe

The challenges are pretty cool.

Posted by iGaboru

If prices weren't as high as they are, I'll consider this emulated thingie.

Posted by defunctdefunctdefunnnnnct

I bet a lot of people are going to be competing in Jungler because of Giant Bomb.

Anyone heard of these new things (that are free) called emulators?
