Wisconsin and Oregon met the Rose Bowl media on Wednesday at the Marriott Los Angeles Downtown. There, as they do leading up to any game during the season, the Badgers and Ducks fielded reporters’ questions. The crowd was bigger, though, considering this is the Granddaddy of Them All. Oh, and there was also some fun, with the players taking their turns on Big Buck Hunter. Full Story

Superbikes 2™ features Dubai track

Raw Thrills is proud and excited to feature Dubai as a race course in the new blockbuster racing game SuperBikes 2™!

Raw Thrills first considered Dubai as a setting following a suggestion from Prakash Vivekanand of Amusement Services International at 2009’s IAAPA Show. Prakash explained the growth and energy of Dubai and encouraged further study.

Dubai – a crossroads of traditional Islamic and Arab culture and modern World dynamism – is energetic, young, and high-octane. Home to the largest collections of Superbikes and Supercars in the world, Dubai is no stranger to the sight of tricked-out rides and exotics cruising the skyscraper canyon of Sheikh Zayed Road.

Featuring the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, the enchanting Palm Islands, and the non-stop urban energy of downtown, Dubai is a natural setting for this larger-than-life racing adventure.

In preparation for this unprecedented undertaking, Raw Thrills sent a team of HD artists and 3D data technicians to Dubai to capture the architecture, layout, and city life so they could best represent the vibrancy of the Emirate. This research culminated in the SuperBIkes 2™ Dubai fantasy race course, a hyper-realistic joyride through the glowing, brightly-lit Dubai night.

In addition to the picturesque Burj Al Arab hotel, and the dazzling glow of skyscrapers, some knowing references to the ongoing construction and development are included. The race course at one point breaks into a construction site, forcing the racers to navigate between welding torches, cranes, and bulldozers.

“Of all the incredible tracks in SuperBikes 2™, Dubai stands out,” says famed game designer Eugene Jarvis. “It captures exactly the vibe and feel of a hot, exciting race under the evening sky. Who wouldn’t want to burn through Doha Road with some friends to see who’s the SuperBikes 2™ king of the night?”

Good things come to those who wait. Big Buck Hunter Pro fans get ready; it is now time for Big Buck Hunter Pro Open Season!

Big Buck Hunter Pro Open Season, the first full-blown software upgrade for # 1 hunting game, Big Buck Hunter Pro, delivers an astounding 60% more content than the original video shooter. The upgrade includes a wide variety of enhancements and additions over the original version. Three new animals with nine new treks give hunters a total of eight animals and 24 trek options to choose from. With 45 new picturesque sites to hunt new animals such as Mountain Goat, Mule Deer, and Bison, the total number of hunting sites in Big Buck Hunter Pro Open Season clocks in at a staggering 120. Nine new bonus rounds were also added to this upgrade for a grand total of 24. Play Mechanix even added another 24 new critters to Big Buck Hunter Pro Open Season to enhance the hunting challenge. Last, but certainly not least, 2 new full motion Big Buck Girls have been added to this newest edition. That is a lot of content!

“I can’t recall a standard video game upgrade that offers so much new content in one upgrade,” said Tony Maniscalco, National Sales Manager Betson Proprietary Products. “If that’s not enough, operators who connect to the CoinUp Service will get even more content at no charge!”

Betson and its Raw Thrills/Play Mechanix Distributor Network will have a lot of ammunition this fall with Big Buck Hunter Pro Open Season, as the game will be offered in four different configurations. A dedicated 42” LCD Deluxe and a 27” Standard model will lead the product line. Two kit options are also available. A full conversion kit complete with a Dell PC and two rifles will turn any tired old gun game into a proven earner. For the supporters of the Big Buck Hunter Pro, a simple and inexpensive software upgrade is being offered in appreciation of their loyalty. All four configurations will be released simultaneously for fall placement.
