Capcom Home Arcade

Wanna pay $200 for a giant Capcom logo that can play a whopping 16 games? Well, you're in luck, bucko.



I didn't think game companies could make one of these things worse than the PlayStation Classic but this is WILD. Like, it's probably a pretty damn good fight stick but the design is dreadful.

The buttons appear to be unlabeled, and don't stand out from the unit. Buttons should be labeled, and should stand out.

I own the games I care about.

'Power Stone' should be on there, and it is not, for reasons that are no doubt stupid.

Also--------who the hell wants to share a controller with a friend when you're in your own living room? I don't want to fight for space on a single unit, I want to spread out and relax.

Sucks that people have wanted them to re-release AvP for forever and this is how they do it.

This would have been awesome in 1992.

I'm not saying I wouldn't take one, if someone was handing 'em out. This has extraordinarily limited appeal, is all.

I'd rather pay 800 dollars and get some real firepower for my basement.

This is me living my best life. This will be my basement as soon as I get stupid money.
