One day, I went to my local bar-cade and went downstairs and saw one of the biggest multiplayer video games I have ever seen, and it was way bigger than X-Men. I had to look closer. This huge white machine matched ten players into two teams of ultimate chaos in an 8-bit world that almost looks like Joust on crack. Killer Queen, by Liquid Bit, has become one of the strangest overnight successes for party games in the arcade.

Between two teams of ten divided into two teams, gold and blue. You start of course with one queen and then the workers who can later turn into warriors. Throughout the game, you have three ways to win; by Military Victory which is killing the queen three times. Economic Victory, which has the workers filling the hive with berries. And then there is the Snail Victory, which has the first team that has a worker on a snail getting to the basket. Believe it or not it is all strategy, but sometimes, it is just all out mayhem.

Brad has been a die hard arcade fan ever since he can remember. From the first time he played Space Invaders, to the first time he played Pacman, Brad has always had a love for video games. Hanging out at either the Great American Fun Factory in the mall, or spending the night in front of the glowing games at the local roller rink, he was always thinking about when he can spend the next quarter. He also worked at Babbages, which is now GameStop, for over six years. Mostly because they had a really sweet checkout policy on new products and great discounts. But since he had the Atari 2600, he has never looked back and owned some of the greatest home machines, NES, SNES, GENESIS, Turbo Graphix 16, GameBoy, Game Gear, Lynx, Playsation 1,2,3,4 and Vita, XBOX, Gamecube, and N64...just to name a few. Brad is also a reviewer for Mobile Beat Magazine as well as a freelance videographer, part time disc jockey, performing artist and photographer. But has a true love is for video games and Star Wars, as he is a member of the 501st Central Garrison. His ultimate dream is to own a fully working pinball machine and arcade machine. Difficult to say which one, but a Star Wars one would be nice start.
