Posted on February 07, 2013 by Mike Villela

Capcom is coming up on a very important anniversary....their own. On June 11, 1983 in the Japanese city of Osaka, Capule Computer aka Capcom was born. Whether you love the company or hate them for their recent actions, people cannot deny the impact that Capcom had in the early days of the gaming industry.

To celebrate their 30th annversary, Capcom has announced the Capcom Arcade Cabniet. The Capcom Arcade Cabinet is a collection of some of Capcom's iconic arcade games of the 80's. Here's a trailer showing off what the Capcom Arcade Cabinet will be offering:

Now If you didn't catch all of the aracde awesomeness that was in the trailer, he is a listing of the games that will be coming out with their respective price points:

Now befor you go on saying "There goes Capcom trying nickel and diming us" look at some of those game. Games like Pirate Ship Higemaru, Side Arms, Section Z and more have never been in any of the Capcom compilation discs that have been released. I think it's good that forgotten classics are being brought back.

What do you think of Elder Scrolls Online

I'm enjoying every minute of it!
It's ok, but there are way too many bugs.
It stinks!
Haven't tried it, but will once the dust settles.
I despise MMORPGs.
