Bad game! Some wrestling arcade machines have been snapping gamers arms in Tokyo. A few weeks ago the AP reported that game distributor Altus Co. is removing all 150 “Arm Spirit” machines due to three players injuring themselves while playing. The spokesperson said that “Even women should be able to beat it.” She claims players may have got “overexcited” and twisted their arms by mistake.
She may have a point because we all know those guys at the movies who play “Dance Revolution,” and they’re sweating and jumping around for hours like their lives depended on it. I’m surprised that nobody has sprained an ankle and sued yet. In the “Arm Spirit” game you can battle a French maid, drunken ninja, and a Chihuahua among other worthy opponents.
