Lil’ troops deployed on the wrong front

Gamasutra reports today on an in-development rehash of one of my favourite old games, Cannon Fodder by Codemasters. From the article:

“British game publisher Codemasters have announced the now-portable return of their classic Cannon Fodder franchise, set to massively attack PSPs in the spring of 2007.”

PSP!?!?!? This was a game whose biggest claim to fame was the freedom to aim quickly and freely with the mouse! What’s it doing on a dual analog system? No doubt the game will be retooled into a non-descript Army Men / Armed & Dangerous / Contra clone that works well on that wee little PSP analog nub. The original game deserves to be released on the DS in all its free-aiming glory!

Check out Cannon Fodder and Cannon Fodder 2 from Home of the Underdogs! Bloody war has never been so adorable!


Go git ’em, Stoo!

About Brian Damage:

Who is Brian really?
I live in Toronto, Canada, and work for an IT firm. That's about as much real-world info I'm comfortable divulging here. What you read on my blog is the real Brian, but, for the sake of freedom of speech, I feel most comfortable leaving a gulf between my cyberspace and meatspace personae.

Who is Brian at work?
My ridiculous job title is "Marketing Specialist" since I wear so many hats at work. I'm a technical writer, a specialist in enterprise search technologies, an electronic forms designer, a newsletter author, system administrator... but I'm in the Marketing department so for the time being I'm stuck with this inauspicious title.

Who is Brian at play?
