Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
MDK2 coming to Wii and an HD remake to PC! Get your toasters ready!
The Wii release will be a download only and should be landing some time before the end of the year. No word on if it is the Dreamcast or PS2 version of the game. The PC release, which is also download only through Beamdog's digital distribution program, doesn't have a release window yet, but it will be an HD version of the game called MDK2 HD.
MDK2 is the proudest accomplishment in video games I have. And I've never beaten it. Ive just gotten to level 9 or something.
It was (and may still be) up there with Ninja Gaiden as the HARDEST game I've ever played. In a nutshell (again, I'll flesh this out later), you rotated through 3 totally awesome charecters - the insanely cool sniping/ribbon suit wearing janitor Kurt, the six armed, six weapon at a time, cigar smoking dog android Max, or the loveable crazy mad scientist Doc. And you shoot at awesome and hilarious space aliens.
And the soundtrack is honestly my favorite video game soundtrack of all time.
If this thing has Wii pointer controls for Kurt's levels, its going to be EASIER, but SO AWESOME.
I still have it for the Dreamcast too. I may have to get home and boot this sucker up...
