Space Giraffe bursts onto PC

December 16th, 2008 ThreeHeadedMonkey Posted in PC, Xbox 360 No Comments »

The magnificent piece of psychedelic genius that is Space Giraffe has just been released for PC. There are a few gameplay enhancements plus the option to use toned down visuals for those weak minded fools who found the original too difficult. There’s now a gameplay guide on the Llamasoft website to help you out if things get too tough.

The original Space Giraffe is still available on Xbox 360 for a meagre 400 points.

August 30th, 2008 ThreeHeadedMonkey Posted in PC No Comments »

Bomberman Online Japan is about to go into beta. The game is the sequel to Online Bomberman, rather than the Dreamcast’s Bomberman Online.

The graphics look absolutely gorgeous, but retain the personality that certain other updates failed to capture. We’re not sure of the payment structure yet but if it’s free it might just tempt us away from the Xbox live arcade version of the game.
