R-Type Dimensions released several years ago on Xbox Live Arcade and hey, it's back in the news with a PlayStation Network version coming to PS3 later this month. Cool.

This is a package combining R-Type and R-Type II with bonuses, including (optional) new high-def graphics, Infinite Mode, and a level select, to name a few. It'll be out May 20, 2014 for $9.99.

It's disappointing to hear R-Type Dimensions isn't also coming to PS Vita, as that usually seems to be the way. Surely the people responsible for this port knew there'd be demand for a portable version, too. Wonder what kept them from going for it. Death to the Bydo, all the same.

Review: Steel Empire

Steel Empire is a game that not many people were able to experience, sadly. As a child, you likely only had access to either a Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis, which cut out a ton of potential classics for you to play and cher...more
