An actually cheaper-than-chips Windows XP version of Bizarre Creations wonderful Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved
is now being sold via Valve’s equally wonderful ‘Steam’ PC download service. For a mere $2.50 (around £1.25 at today’s exchange rates).
See. While a large portion of chips at our local branch of Harry Ramsden’s sets us back £1.30.
If, shamefully, you have still not yet played Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved
then you really have no excuse now. Get it quick too, as it goes up to $3.95 starting June 22. Which is nearly a whole two English pounds. The price of two lovely saveloys.
"With over 13 million active accounts, Steam is the ideal platform for launching Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved
for Windows XP," said Martyn Chudley, Creative Director at Bizarre Creations. "We hope to continue the success of Geometry Wars
by introducing its award-winning gameplay to one of gaming's largest communities."
And don’t forget that Geometry Wars: Galaxies
will be heading to the Wii and DS later this year, not to mention Bizarre's two other monster new games for 2007 - The Club
(published by Sega) and Project Gotham Racing 4
(with motorbikes!) (published by Microsoft Games Studios)
