This week's game release for Xbox Live Arcade are remastered versions of Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe for 400 points. I've played it and it's actually pretty fun with the new graphics. Asteroids was a game that fellow writer Dave Gamble set the high score on on my old work place until I took over the top spot. He promised anyone who beat it a case of beer but he has yet to deliver in 9 years.
Get ready for classic space shooting action with the release of “Asteroids” and “Asteroids Deluxe” which will be available jointly for download on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 this Wednesday, November 28 at 9:00 a.m. GMT (2:00 a.m. PST).
