New arcade games: Pac-Man & Terminator

Here are a couple of possibly cool new arcade games that I would be pleased to play.

Pac-Man Battle Royale

This is basically a four-player version of the game Pac-Man Championship Edition that was released on Xbox Live Arcade in 2006 (I think) with new maze layouts (I think) and some cool features.  There can now be up to 4 Pac-Men playing at once, free to cooperate, compete, or ignore each other.  When a Pac-Man eats a power pellet he becomes big like in Super Pac-Man (1982) and he can even eat the other Pac-Men in addition to the ghosts.  Also of interest is that a Pac-Man can only eat ghosts if he’s currently big, even if some other Pac-Man has eat a power pellet and made all the ghosts blue/vulnerable.

Terminator Salvation

This game is being released by Raw Thrills, the company that is basically the successor to Midway’s arcade division. If you’ll recall, way back in the day, Midway made a cool arcade shooter based on Terminator 2.  But aside from that, this game looks pretty bad-ass and fun.
