Speedball 2 images

Speedball 2 images

Microsoft just unveiled five new images of Speedball 2 on Xbox live arcade, probably renders of the redesigned version. It won't stop me from playing the real version, with its cool blue ice tones.

It's still just as good and addictive as it ever was. The upgrade in graphics works well, but I miss the old style injury machines and the cries of "ice cream!". You can switch to classic mode at any time though and relive those glory moments. God bless the Bitmap Brothers :)

God bless the original version.

(Edit : Yeah, I'm a retro jerk)

Looks pretty good for an XBLA game.

Oh I can't wait to get to injure people in this, I hope they haven't changed the mechanics.

About the game

    Sdarts Blizzard giving the original StarCraft for free is very generous of them. Weird to think Activision owns it, even though Blizzard has free reign. One of the best onwed by one of the worst. (26 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered's additions - more in the article - and the fact that Blizzard will make the original StarCraft free, and let players of the original play with those of the remastered is great. (28 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered out this summer: [url] 4K visuals, modern online play, LAN support with Blizzard Friends & Matchmaking. (31 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Those are mods and they will be available if/once the PC version comes out. (32 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: That's true. But I'm sure it will still sell a gazillion of copies. Specially if it ends up being as great as the first one. Also, very few Westerns, so people will love the "novelty". (33 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog although rocket powered horse racing with loop the loops, 1000ft jumps and corkscrews would be pretty entertaining. (34 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the MP mode has tron cycles and trackmania style racing. i just can't see RDR having that sort of mass appeal unless they go ball to the wall crazy with the way they do things. (35 minutes ago)
