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.

    aphex187 Played a bit of BF1 yesterday, still doesn't hold my attention like it used to but by jingo it looks beautiful!! (34 minutes ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I know hdr makes a difference. However, is it worth 1000+ euro's? (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea that's sorta like turning up the "digital vibrance" setting in the Nvidia control panel. Without HDR we're just seeing more saturated colors. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If it was, that would be great as there would be no need to buy a HDR TV to watch HDR content as any SDR screen would be able to show HDR the same as HDR screens. I wish it was like that though. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Mostly what you can see is a richer color palette due to a wider color gamut and bloom/brightness. Though it's not the same, unfortunately. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts You can see it here in both the "Nano Cell" and "HDR" sections on this LG TV: [url] It's still not the same as watching in person. SDR screens can't show HDR. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, you can see a difference, but only on colors and bloom. It's the same type of thing that TV manufacturers use to describe what HDR is with images. same. (9 Hours ago)
