[E3 2008] Geometry Wars 2 and Galaga Legions: Two XBLA Exclusives to Rule Them All


I am pleasantly surprised by the strong support both Microsoft and Sony have shown for their downloadable game platforms this E3. Microsoft in particular isn’t showing much in the way of quantity, but two of the Xbox Live Arcade exclusives it landed alone are more than enough to generate a lot of buzz and excitement. Those two titles being Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 and Galaga Legions, of course, one the sequel to the game that truly put the XBLA on the map and the other the first true sequel to a classic arcade game that took the world by storm over 20 years ago. Both titles should hopefully be out before summer’s end, but as far as I know no launch dates have been locked in as of yet.

After the break you’ll find screenshots and gameplay clips for both titles, do enjoy!
