News Roundup February 10th

by Huey Chewwy in

With the recent reveal of Q*bert Rebooted, Atari is looking to bring back a classic of their own.  Fans of the early 80's no doubt remember the arcade game Asteroids.  If you were looking for an HD remake of the arcade classic, you might be disappointed.  Asteroids: Outpost was announced today, and of all things it is an open world sandbox survival game.  Let that sink in for a minute... Asteroids is now an open world survival game.  Players will explore a giant asteroid, looking for precious ores and resources to build equipment and items.  Shooting down smaller asteroids near the surface will allow you to gather the resources they drop.  If this sounds a little like Minecraft, then you may not be alone.  Asteroids: Outpost will be launching on PC in March.  

A weeklong sale centered around mystery games is now live on Steam.  42 titles are on sale, with some up to 75% off. Sam & Max Complete Season One, Tesla Effect, Alan Wake, and Gunpoint are some of the games featured in this sale.  

A new trailer showcasing some of the new features in MLB 15 The Show can be seen above.
