Sure, the new Mortal Kombat movie just came out today but I need some time to properly review it. So, Justin and I decided to put up a review today that he wanted to do for years. It’s on the 1993 (prototyped in 1992) arcade game “Lucky & Wild” by Namco. L&W is a first-person racing/shooter that fits right in the buddy cop genre like Tango & Cash and Starsky and Hutch. However, it’s super cartoony and over the top. Players choose to be one of two different characters: Lucky, who is always dressed in fashionable suits and does both driving and shooting; and Wild, who is a wild and crazy guy who only shoots. The object of the game is to help the two heroes capture five wanted suspects in five rounds of high-speed chases.

  1. As a recovering alcoholic I love being shown wine videos so you make another 10 grand!

  2. Thats crazy…we both said sadly at the same time

  3. I remember that I played this arcade in my childhood in a well-known arcade gallery called Diana entertainments in the center of Santiago de Chile I think it was the only place where I saw that machine

  4. This game is actually still in my local arcade! Very fun game to play with a friend

  5. Lucky & wild arcade to be in ps2 or PS3 because hard drivin arcade in ps2

  6. loved this game, they had it at my local movie theater.

  7. "This game that came out seven years before FMA has Greed in it~!"
    "This overly generic and still different line of text is a reference to a movie the author says he's never seen."
    I'm amazed how much is made up in this video… with the narrator not trying to hide that he's just sharing his head canon about the game like its facts.

  8. The cat on the Pink Cats Garage logo reminds me of that one cat from Courage The Cowardly Dog

  9. The Starsci and Hutch Ps2 game has a similar setup. When playing with two people one drives with a wheel and if there is a light gun the second player can shoot.That is the only game that I know of the has that setup.

  10. Jokes on you! I still remember playing this in the shopping mall near my house in my hometown!

    It placed right beside Jurrasic Park

  11. the pink cats garage remind me of bratty and catty from undertale

  12. Lucky to have one at my local arcade growing up, never saw one out in the Wild…

  13. Dude!!!! My buddy and I lived on this game for an entire summer at our local arcade, leave it up to you guys to open another great memory

  14. What do you mean never played, I LOVE THIS CAB!

  15. Cover Savage Quest next, that's one you gotta play to really get how cool the controls are.

  16. Japanese cars have the steering wheel on the right, same as the UK, which would explain why their artwork portrays this. They must have switched the steering wheel over on the cabinet when exported to the US.

  17. I grew up with this game, with my dad driving and my mom and I shooting. I still think its a neat game.

  18. I'm surprised you can advertise wine on Youtube!

  19. I actually did play this back in the day.

  20. Those aren't UZIs they're MAC-10s, silly.

    I guess I must be crazy because I can think of three local arcades that had this game in the bay area back in the day.

  21. Cars made for the Japanese market are right hand drive, so the art work makes sense based on it's origin this cabinet was properly might have had regional types😊

  22. What do don't see is James pouring the wine down the drain.

  23. I faintly remember playing this with my dad in a Peter Piper Pizza in the early 2000s

  24. Well here come a flud of forgotten memories of playing this game.

  25. Cant stand that manchild blob Justin Silverman

  26. I like this game. Me n my cousin played this constantly at an arcade we went to.

  27. This is one arcade game I wish I owned personally 😢


  29. Ridge Racer was the most ever namco game I ever played wheather it was on the arcade or PS1

  30. I did play this as a kid ❤️
    Have never seen it after that

  31. Was lucky to have it in an arcade in my city. Only played it a handful of times, because I was too busy playing The Simpsons Arcade Game. But from what I can remember, it was really fun.
