Worms Armageddon Now Available to Purchase on Steam!
Posted in Worms by Squirminator2k at 19/03/13 1:26pm CET

That's right, arguably the finest entry in the series is now available to buy on Steam. Team17's asking price is a bit steep - pricing for the UK region is £11.99, more than twice the price of the Sold Out Worms 2 + Worms Armageddon bundle, while US customers are being charged $14.99, which is slightly more reasonable when compared to the similarly-priced and significantly less content-filled Worms Revolution.

If you already own Worms Armageddon and don't want to have to bugger about with your CD-ROM anymore, the price point might be something of a turn-off. If you're a relative newbie to the series, introduced by recent titles such as Worms Reloaded and , I suppose you have to decide whether you're willing to pay a price like this for a 14 year-old PC game.

For those wondering, the Steam version should be kept up to date with new patches and will run on modern systems. It even plays nice with Wine if you're the sort of sadist who uses Linux.

Classic Amiga games on Blackberry and other obscure news
Posted in Amiga Classics by SupSuper at 16/03/13 2:39pm CET

If you told me someone would be officially porting Amiga games to Blackberry in 2013, I'd say you're out of your mind! Yet here we are. Amiga Inc. has partnered up with BlackBerry to bring your favorite Amiga games to BlackBerry Playbook and Z10 devices.

There's already a lot of titles available on BlackBerry World, with many more to come! You'll notice classics like Turrican and Gods, and of course all your favorite Team17 titles (but no Worms?). The new touch controller seems kinda finicky, but hey it's another chance to relive the classics, let us know what you think. Smile

On other news, Hallfiry managed to tracked down various info on Team17's unreleased RPG, Witchwood, including promotional screenshots, trailers and even a tech demo! Surprising how a title can still get canned after so much development and marketing got put into it.
