Evercade Reveals Data East Claasics And More

Looks like more retro classics are coming. Toaplan Arcade 3 brings 7 great arcade games to Evercade including the much-requested Batsugun and Out Zone. Data East returns to Evercade with 12 Arcade classics including Joe and Mac Returns, Super BurgerTime, and more.

the Toaplan cart is a nice surprise. Batsugun, Truxton 2... great stuff. I keep hoping to see Robocop on a Data East arcade cart but licensing is a bitch. I'll just play it on my xbox via coinops.

There are so many fun games from Data East. I am sure rights would be a mess but it would be nice to see more.

Spectrum Studio Boss in Hot Water as "Naked Sauna" as Part of Employees' Requirements Surface

Spectrum Studios is in hot water, as part of their job requirements involve "attending sauna sessions" that are "non-negotiable."

Hopefully their next game isn't about a murderer and they require employees to kill to someone to have a real understanding.

LOLOL!

But you can't develop a game with sauna elements UNLESS you've been in a sauna with a game dev...preferably naked.

I think they got commissioned the next Leisure Suite Larry .... :P

He is right you need to experience something to be able to write about it just like Tolkien threw himself in mount doom to understand Sauron and like Agatha Christie organized a death game on a remote island

Ah yes I read that news outlets were picking up on this string of facebook posts. Easy to write about some random conversation on FB without much context. Let's see how long it takes for them to talk to the devs directly for clarification. I'm sure these sites will drag this out as long as they can painting this guy as a creep. Maybe he is, maybe he isn't.

excaliburps1d 5h ago

Have you read his replies?? He is even explaining how his rationale is correct...

Inverno1d 5h ago

Yes I've read the replies. But if sites are gonna write about this they should do their jobs as journalist and get in contact with one of the woman who works in the studio.

Why would it only be a big deal for women? I wouldn't want to be required to sauna naked, wouldn't work at a place like that. Really strange that owner is defending this. Since the owner is involved in those communications, that's enough to write an article about. That's not to say they shouldn't reach out to them and any employees willing to talk but this is freakin' weird.

OtterX9h ago

@swedishMeatwad Right? Because if they really felt uncomfortable, they should have at the very least been allowed to wear a bikini or underwear under their towel. If the Owner demands that they get the real experience to better know the Sauna world, they should at least be offered the protection from creepers trying to look up their towel. It's same exact experience if they were slightly covered underneath. Demanding that they be nude is too much, especially if he's insinuating that they should be comfortable with removing their towel.

@Swed
It's not only a big deal for women, but do you think this would've been picked up if it were only men being pushed to go to a naked sauna? Do you think the FB post would've even been made of it were only men?

i read that as "Rectum Studio Boss in Hot Water as "Naked Sauna" as Part of Employees' Requirements Surface"
