Checkpoint: The Final Days of August Edition

Time has just flown by for me this year. It’s a consequence of not taking any vacation to just do nothing. But despite the lack of vacation, I’ve been working through some games.

I wrapped up Asura’s Wrath and even played some Geometry Wars 2. That game is still awesome. It would have been fitting to have a Geometry Wars 3 make its debut on the Xbox One. I even managed to unlock an Achievement (Treaty).

While on the Xbox 360, I noticed that I downloaded but never launched Beyond Good & Evil HD. I think it’s time I check that out. I also have Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light to finish as well. After that, I believe my Xbox 360 backlog will only consist of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

I’m still working my way through Plants vs Zombies 2 but I haven’t touched Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. Animal Crossing made it’s way back into the 3DS XL and hasn’t left since Monday.

So what do I have left for the summer? I hope to fix up the house during the next long weekend. I was hoping to do some furniture shopping as well but I just haven’t found the motivation to spend big cash on that stuff. But I ought to if I want this place to appear like a real home.

FYI: MvC3 Gets Release Date & CE bundle, Bizarre Creations Closing?

  • Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds debuts February 15th, 2010 for Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3
  • Marvel vs Capcom 3 Collector’s Edition announced & includes:
    • Steelbook case
    • Comic/Art book
    • 1 month subscription to Marvel Digital Comics
    • Shuma Gorath & Jill Valentine DLC characters 4 weeks in advance
  • Bizarre Creations in the process of closing? (via GiantBomb)

My Thoughts

  1. Glad to see MvC3 get a release date finally. Hopefully this means they’ll tone down the constant stream of character reveals.
  2. The collector’s edition of MvC3 costs $74.99 CAD. A bit pricey, but the extra characters and the steelbook make it worth it for me. I’m suspecting the characters are already on the disc and they’re going to charge unlock codes for it. Might as well get the package and spend the extra $15.
  3. Poor Bizarre Creations. I enjoyed Geometry Wars 1 & 2. I didn’t spend much time with Blur or Project Gotham Racing 3 or 4, but I enjoyed what I played. Sad to see them closing. I hope somebody like Zenimax picks them up. They’re a talented bunch when you give them the right project. (ie: not third or first person shooters)

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 Coming To PC?

Update: Looks like it was a typo. Thanks Manuel.

There I was, downloading a copy of the newly released remix track from Bizarre Creation’s website, when I decided to check out what else Mr. Chris Chudley worked on.

Through his site, Audio Antics, I noticed that he worked on all the Geometry Wars releases, the recent Project Gotham releases and The Club. While checking out the Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 entry, I noticed a tiny nugget.

Is this a typo? Or does this mean the sequel will be joining its predecessor on Steam?

Bizarre Creations PR was contacted for comments.

A Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 Remix

posted in: Game News | 0

It’s thirteen minutes of Geometry War: Retro Evolved 2’s awesome soundtrack remixed by a fellow named “Chris Chudley” (who did a lot of work in Bizarre Creation’s other works as well). The mix is called “46860 Choices” and was made publicly available from the fine folks at Bizarre Creations.

You can download it from their post or from the download link below.

  Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 Megamix: 46860 Choices (17.9 MiB, 963 hits)

I absolutely enjoyed the hell out of this remix.
