SQUAKE adds online multiplayer battles to classic Snake


10:30 AM on 09.11.2013



Every now and then I think about Anaconda, a competitive multiplayer minigame embedded in the fantastic TimeSplitters 2. It was basically Snake with full 360 degree movement, and it was glorious. My friends and I probably spent as much time in college playing Anaconda on a multi-tapped PlayStation 2 as we did playing the rest of TimeSplitters 2.

Well, the need for extra peripherals for multiplayer battle Snake is gone now. SQUAKE is on Steam Greenlight, and it looks like it would satisfy my nostalgia for at least a bit. The arenas look a bit larger and more dynamic than the one found in Anaconda, and the "snake" in question is actually a train (that somehow doesn't require rails). The only thing missing is the mind-invading music, but I'll let that slide if this gives me an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and force them to crash into my long, luxurious tail (of boxcars).

Open world platformer/space shooter A.N.N.E is a retro buffet

Really, why even play clearly deficient retro games? I mean, where are the shmup segments in Metroid? Where are the open world segments in Contra? Where are the line segments in a bisected triangle? A.N.N.E. is one part platformer, one part shmup, one part RPG. And this year at PAX A.N.N.E. has all its systems in play. Maybe we'll all get to play it this year.more

Boy, The Hong Kong Massacre sure looks like Hotline Miami

Hotline Miami by way of Stranglehold or any other John Woo flick, at least. Which is appropriate for the setting. Though I'm also reminded of Michael Mann's Miami Vice movie for some reason. I guess it can't exactly be Hotli...more
