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

    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (3 Hours ago)

    Tinks ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (13 Hours ago)

    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (16 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (19 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (19 Hours ago)
