June 9th game pack list

Post by David GP » Thu Jun 03, 2010 4:50 am

Game Pack #5 is out and with it comes some info about next week's batch.

From what I gather, the two games that weren't released this week (and were supposed to be) are River Raid 2 (VCS) and Liberator (Arcade). Liberator is the follow-up to Missile Command.

Will they be part of next week's batch? Most likely. The following titles will also (probably) be made available:

- Air Sea Battle (VCS);
- Baseball (Intellivision);
- Chopper Command (VCS);
- Circus Atari (VCS);
- Konami's Ping Pong (arcade);
- Motocross (Intellivision);
- Sky Jinks (VCS);
- Video Hustler (arcade).

Simply watch the video previews to get a sneak peek of those games. The scrolling message in the lobby also mentions that Warlords will be included in Game Pack #6.

Yet another batch of dull games - except Chopper Command, but I doubt I will even bother buying that one.

There's 15 games in the pack so... 15/3 = 5 games a week?

Isn't River Raid 2 going to be released next week?

I've tried the demos of yesterday's batch, a bit disappointing... I don't know about the next one though, I'll have to try the demos and make up my mind.
