I'll Stick To The Crane Game, Thank You Very Much: Robo Catcher Arcade Prize Game

As many of you may know, I'm a master of the crane game (picture proof of some of my winnings after the jump -- even the bullwhip), so I have no interest in Robo Catcher. Robo Catcher is an arcade prize game in which you control a little robot. The goal is to pick up a (crumpled paper filled) prize-ball and drop it down a chute. Simple, right? Not with a cheating-ass robot in the mix! Plus, the machine costs $11,000! Now I'm not saying I can think of at least a hundred better versions of the prize game, but I can. At least 200 of which involve controlling a stray cat....WITH LASERS. Plus you win kittens! I know, I know, I'm a genius.

Hit the jump for a full shot of the machine, a picture of my crane-game winnings, and two videos of the robo-bastard cheating kids out of prizes.

    I honestly don't care if it cheats me. I just want to play it. Then I shall buy a great array of the machines, making my own army. Capable of picking up balls, and... falling. I don't think I thought this through.
