TGIF everyone. No time for chit chat, lets get to it: today Max and Tara run down the week in reviews thanks to Jim Sterling, talk about the Capcom/Splosion Man debacle, realize the reality of the Dreamcast Collection, and rant about the stupidity of Bulletstorm.
Destructoid show episode 39. Let's get to the meat:
Story #1 - Android getting a Games-On-Demand service. No details on the games that will be available, but this means nothing but good news for us Android gamers. What titles do you hope we'll get?
Story #2 - Capcom Rips off Splosion Man. Remember that XBLA game we all loved, Splosion Man? Well it turns out Capcom Mobile liked it so much that they made a carbon copy.
Story #3 - Dreamcast collection confirmed for 360 and PC. Games like Crazy Taxi, Bass Fishing and MORE hits from the Dreamcast Era finally making it to this generation.
Story #4 - 3DS may also be region locked. Another unconfirmed 3DS story, but one that is just as painful: rumor has it that the 3DS will be region locked, meaning you'll need a Japanese 3DS to play Japanese games, and so forth. So much for importing one.
Story #5 - Bulletstorm demo out on January 25.Max may very well hate Cliffy B. At the very least, he's jealous of that faux hawk.
Story #6 - Gamestop wants to connect your XBL/PSN accounts Not every news story can be exciting, folks.
