Midway's Online Arcade

Everyone’s gotta have an online games store these days. One day, even we’ll have one, exclusively selling unplayable text adventures we made when we were nine, and the BBC Micro version of Manic Miner which I hacked to say that I wrote it.

Meantime, it’s Midway’s turn.
These days, the old M are flogging the likes of UT3 and the super fucking subversive Blacksite: Area 51, but back in the dim and distant they were of course responsible for yer Defenders. yer Robotrons and yer Spy Hunters. They’re now selling a few of those olde worlde gemes at their new digital storefront, in packs of three games for $5, seven for $10 and $15 for the whole bunch. Which ain’t bad value, depending on the extent to which you’re jonesing for Gauntlet II and Super Off Road. Man, I could really go for some Super Off Road right now, actually.

You can also download its more recent, many Gigabyted PC fare from their main site. Blacksite and Stranglehold, only $20 each! Eeeuch.

It’s good times for retro fans, anyway. On a similar note note, take a look at Good Old Games and start getting excited about cheap, DRM-free digital downloads of Fallout and Sacrifice come September. It could be massive, eh? We’ll have a GoG interview for you next week, incidentally.
