Yars' Revenge's Revenge

Yars' Revenge is consistently cited as one of the best games for the Atari 2600 platform, and for good reason. As I read on Joystiq last night, someone at Atari finally wised up and realized that it's time for a modern reboot.

I like the way they are going with it, although it would have been cooler if you were an actual bug alien and not a hot alien chick in a bug suit. But whatever, I'm just happy to see one of my old favorites getting a facelift. I wonder how it will be received. Most people who are playing games today were born after the original was released.

For a refresher, read The Qotile Ultimatum.

Not true! Average age of gamers is like 35 now! That puts us at 1976, so the average gamer was 6 or 5.5 in May of 1982, when Yar's Revenge came out.

I was -4 at the time, however.
