Farewell THQ and Atari US, parting is such sweet sorrow. As these two former giants of the game developing world slip into the eternal night, what will happen to their downloadable games? If XBLA is any indication; some games will be pulled, some reduced and some not touched at all! Voltron has been delisted, Yar's Revenge and The Undergarden have been reduced, whilst Warhammer 40K: Kill Team remains untouched. Confused? You will be.
Looking for a new game to brighten your day? Nothing catching your eye? The second week of April may not be known for its blockbuster releases, but you can still get your new game on. This week has a little hack in slash, a little rhythm, and a little tower defense. Oh yeah, and one of my favorite Atari 2600 games has been remade as an anime-style shooter, but I'm not bitter about it.
Yar's Revenge is releasing this week on Xbox Live Arcade and PC - and Co-Optimus has the first two exclusive screenshots of the game's co-op mode. Want more? We're giving away copies of the game to lucky winners on launch day. Read on to find out how to enter and check out the screens.
A few months ago we brought you news that Atari is remaking the Atari 2600 classic, Yar's Revenge. The staff member (hint: it was me) who posted the article was a little distraught over the new look of "Yar." The main protagonist of the game is no longer a bad-a$$ metallic fly, but is now a half-armored anime girl. Remember the slow death currently happening to the Japanese game industry? Can we please stop emulating them? I've seen a lot of half-dressed anime babes in gaming, I cannot say the same for giant metal death flies.
