The members have spoken, and the next title up for the Vintage Game Club is Beyond Good & Evil. "For centuries, the planet Hillys has been locked in conflict with a race of relentless alien invaders. Wary of her government's promises to repel the aliens for good, a rebellious action reporter named Jade sets out to capture the truth behind the prolonged war."
As I've pointed out in the past, we all have busy lives, so the club requires nothing but your interest to join. If you decide to start a game with us, but can't continue it - or if you post a comment but can't return to follow up, no big deal. The club is just a framework for bringing us together. Join in, drop out, come back...whatever. We're here to have fun and broaden our knowledge and awareness of important games.
A few details:
- How to join the Vintage Game Club? - Hop over to our discussion forum, sign up, and you're in.
- When do we start? - Sunday, January 25. That should give everyone a chance to get their hands on the game. PC users can purchase it from Direct2Drive, Steam, and GameTap. The game is also available for Gamecube, PS2, and Xbox (not 360-compatible, unfortunately).
- How will it work? - We'll try to play together at roughly the same pace and post our thoughts as we go along. Post daily, weekly, every once in awhile - whatever works for you. We will organize the forum threads so they flow in a way that reflects the unfolding of the game. We hope these posts will look more like a conversation and less like a series of disconnected comments.
If you've never played Beyond Good & Evil, now's the time to give it a whirl. If you've already played the game, feel free to jump in and lend a bit of your expertise to the discussion. All are welcome.
