Remember Missile Command? Of course you do, it was quite the thing back in the day, and is still enough of a thing that it continues to get attention. In fact, Missile Command 2 will be shown for the first time at next year's California Extreme Arcade Expo. The expo, which takes place in July, will allow attendees a chance to get some hands-on time with the two player followup to the 1980 original.

Instead of players taking turns, Missile Command 2 is a head-to-head cocktail style game. While each person must first worry about keeping their own base safe, once they've destroyed all the threats directed at them, they can attempt to help the other player, assuming they have any rockets left. Missile Command 2 never saw a release because the few people who did get to play it back in 1982 complained that the game was too easy, and so it was never officially produced. Ah well, at least the original title can still be enjoyed on Xbox Live Arcade.

My desk craves this game-inspired Predator 2 figure

I'm still kicking myself for missing NECA's glow-in-the-dark Jason Voorhees figure based on his loud design in Friday the 13th for the NES. It was exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con, and I should've had a friend nab one for me....more
