Another Wednesday, another 1980s arcade port. Defender
may push some nostalgia buttons out there, but on the eve of two competitors' launches we were hoping Microsoft would deliver with a little more oomph
. Sure, Marathon was a stretch
, but at least toss us one of those indie games that has been knocking around the pipeline for months, and months, and months...
In other Xbox Live news, EA's Supe'man
demo has landed
-- for Gold members only*. Good luck squeezing this bloated hunk of mediocrity (905.42 MB) onto your petite hard drive. Spider-Man
was fun for a hot minute, Hulk
added some chaos, and Superman
, well, maybe EA needs to point that finger
back at itself. Superheroes in the sandbox is past trite.
*The demo will be available for Xbox Live Silver members on Nov. 22.
