Demo Roundup: May 29th, 2012

I'm moving in slow motion. Feels so good. It's a strange anticipation...

Written by litepink on 30 May 12 at 01:19

Today see's the release of two new demos currently exclusive to Gold members. The first is for Top Gun: Hard Lock, a game released back in March of this year. Remember the NES version of Top Gun? God forbid you actually pull off refueling the plane, but then they make you land it too. Imagine the TA ratio if that NES game had achievements!

The other is for the upcoming Kinect title Summer Stars. Test your skills as you go for Olympic gold!

Top Gun: Hard Lock - Demo Link
Lock onto the Rush with Top Gun: Hard Lock and shoot down your enemies one by one! Take to the skies in your F14 to defend your fleet with some fancy flying. Take off and land on the air craft carrier and feel the burn as you break the sound barrier chasing MiGs at Mach II.Summer Stars 2012 - Demo Link
Whether playing solo in the expansive career mode or competing with friends in the addictive four player multiplayer modes, Summer Stars 2012 brings you an exciting arcade-style sporting experience. Take on a huge variety of summer sports and special challenges and see if you've got what it takes to bring home the gold this summer!

I was waiting for the Top Gun demo.... And landing was easy on the NES it was only 4 years ago I learned how to properly fire missiles. Tough game though. I am pretty sure I own every single Top Gun game till this.

You can unlock multiplayer in Top Gun by paying an extra $10.
Boycott that fucking shit since it should be included in the game.

I guess "Summer Stars 2012" isn't available for Denmark, which means some countries can't play it..
I lost the game!

You have to pay for multiplayer ? Serious ?
I was interessed in this game , but this is definetly too much ...

DLCs are okay, you have a choice to buy it, but making the multiplayer a dlc ist just a joke .
I will ignore the demo for a very very good reason !

I will only consider playing the Top Gun game if has "Highway to the Danger Zone" on it. If not, no sale.

I'll have to check out Top Gun. Doesn't sound too thrilling but it's worth checking out.

Top Gun! Ahh the NES memories. Might just have to go find it again.

I'll give the Top Gun Demo a try. I'm just hoping it doesn't have the forced Dog Fight Mode that Ace Combat Assault Horizon has or plays like the HAWKZ games. Hopefully it plays like Ace Combat 6 and earlier.

Do you have proof of this? Cause that sounds a lot like a online pass that would only cost you $10 if you bought the game used. It's probably included in new copies of the game.

Not really interested in either but I might try Summer Stars to see if it is as bad as I think. Who knows, maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.

It's an online pass (according to Terrin, a few posts above). Same as the online pass almost every other developer is using now. You only have to pay for it if you buy the game used (and even then there's a chance that the code may not have been redeemed, but that's a gamble).

So apparently Wanderer is going to boycott a LOT of games... wink

I'm gonna have to give Top Gun another try later. Demo seems alright. Just takes some getting used to. Of course, can't be a Top Gun game without the theme. Now I feel like watching the movie.
