Tetsuya Mizuguchi's strangely lovely, Rez HD
comes to Xbox Live Arcade this week - so, like,get with it, yeah?
We know Rez
from years of interviewing Mizuguchi
about it... see like we said, interviewing him
. In case you don't, you can visit ourRez page over here
Still not happy? Well, "Rez HD
is a frenetic, wire-frame adventure set to industrial beats and rhythms that match the action. The story of Rez HD
takes players deep into the world’s computer network where they must hack the system, alter the visual output and take over the music, creating unique rhythms and eye candy as they dig deeper into the cyberworld".
See, that's what Microsoft says... frankly, we've never been that bothered with 'story' when it comes to Mizuguchi games. Rez
was great on SEGA's Dreamcast and the PS2 un'all - forget plot though. Download it for 800 Microsoft points on Wednesday 30th January, the year of our Horde, 2008.
Next up is Software Toolworks... sorry, Ubisoft's Chessmaster Live
Chess, in case you didn't know, is a mysterious game played for human blood by people with spines and enormous cajones in no-holds-barred battles that can last for hours of intense action. Apparently a revolutionary, multi-dimensional version of the game is available on something called a 'Board' which can be taken and used in something called 'the pub'.
The XBLA version is available on Wednesday January 30th 2007 for 800 Microsoft points.
