Both the Arkanoid DS
and Space Invaders Extreme
websites went live yesterday, and they couldn't be more different. Going to the Arkanoid
website is like going to a Saturday brunch with your mother, while going to the SIE
site is like hitting up a night club twelve hours later, staying out until 5 AM, and puking up everything you've had to drink before bedtime (we mean that in the best of ways).
If you want something more descriptive than a simile, the Arkanoid
site is cleaner and more organized than its Invaders
counterpart (and it's also silent), but we think that may be because there's no "Extreme" in its title to live up to. Those who prefer trippy visuals
and loud music on their web browsers, though, should head on over to the SIE
page (consider this a sound alert
for those of you in "not safe for audio" workspaces). If you've visited the Japanese website for this title before, you'll know what to expect, as it's exactly the same
As it stands, there's not much to do on either site except read about the games. We were hoping that little demos or browser games would be present, but alas, our wants were denied.
At least we'll see the real things in only two weeks.
