V8: Arcade, the XBLA re-imagining of the Vigilante 8 series, has finally been submitted to Microsoft for certification, which means the game should arrive in late summer or early autumn.
Cant wait to play this online.
There's always Wipeout HD and the new Twisted Metal game for online racing/combat kicks on PS3.
i have one question. why on earth is this game able to sell for 800 micro points, but braid is 1,200? i dont get how the pricing goes online. braid is good dont get me wrong. but it looks like a suped up snes game. while V8 looks realy realy good. plus online co op. also, bionick commando is only 800 points too. i would get braid but not at that price,i think there is some splaining to do lucy.
And Wipeout has wiped out! LOL!
Wow I really liked this game back in the PS1 days. I cant really seem to find any info on it though. This was Twisted Metals best competition. The missions were pretty fun too.
Yea I'm probably going to be getting this game.
i loved Twisted Metal and Vigilante 8 on PS1, the former for the gameplay and the latter for the graphics :)
If a game has had more then a three sequels then it's played out crap that doesn't belong on the PSN!
Vigilante 8 had two games in the series, one good one and one..err, not so I hear. Also check out Wipeout Pure and Pulse sales and Metacritic on the PSP, hmm, yes. I was scarred by Fusion on PS2, but those two PSP games made up for it and I'm sure WO:HD will continue that trend too. Points to the first service who bring out Rollcage3 which co-incidentally would work well with Six-Axis...
Damn, I sure wish this game would come out on the PSN because I remember I had it for my Playstation years ago and loved it but lost track of it... I guess I'll just have to track down a copy online... I still have Vigilante 8 2nd Offense for the Playstation... both were awesome car combat games. It would be awesome if some game studio came out with a next-gen Vigilante 8 game for the PS3/360 because it would be the perfect rival for the next-gen PS3 Twisted Metal game from Eat, Sleep, Play.
It would be nice if PS3-only owners got some love for this title, too.
Thats crazy Ill be able to play V8 on my 360.
Agreed. So looking forward to this one! With Bionic Commando, Braid and Castle Crashers all coming in the span of a few weeks I hope V8 comes out a bit later. Too much to play!
Vigilante 8 is one of my favorite games for the N64. I love that games like this are coming to Xbox Live.
Agreed. I was surprised when Symphony of the Night and Soul Calibur hit live. It just gets better! And the addition of xbox originals was pretty cool. Just wish jet grind radio future and Silent hill 2: restless dreams and Panzer dragoon orta were on the list, too.
Couldn't agree more. :) Those Originals would be awesome additions as would the original Mercs. ;)
