The latest in the Big Buck Hunter series of arcade hits is aiming to change arcade video game expectations.
For years the coin-op hunting series has found great success in arcades, taverns and entertainment centers across the country, proving that there can still be a smash hit arcade title. Championship tournaments on the various titles take place across the country each year as the series continues to appeal to a variety of demographics.
This summer, Raw Thrills brings out Big Buck HD, a title that promises some true arcade gaming firsts.
Big Buck HD will be the first video arcade game to fully integrate social media giants Facebook and Twitter into their gaming product. Players will be able to gain achievements and badges similar to other outlets such as XBox Live and instantly share them across social media from the location of the arcade unit.
The game will also feature a full 1080p HD graphic experience, online showdown matches that connect players from around the country in real-time and more. Players will also be able to swipe credit cards to play the various game features.
Big Buck HD is currently beta testing. The official YouTube channel for the series has released an official preview trailer showing off the new features. It can be found to the left of this article.
