I was reading Dubious Quality and noticed a mention that this was comng to Live Arcade.  Came from an article on Gamasutra apparently.

I have some very fond memories of playing this on my Atari ST... could be really interesting as a LA title.

Do any LA games feature online multi-play?

Almost all do. This one will too, which makes me so happy! This is a really fun game, and finally being able to play multiplayer will be a real treat.

I loved this game on Amiga maybe? I'm looking forward to see some screens of the update graphics mode.  Don't expect a ton, but same game with some bumped up graphics would be nice.

You can download a teaser trailer from the official site and there is a little bit of a preview on Eurogamer who played an early version and has a couple screenshots.

Yeah, this was on the Amiga, and several other platforms.  It was also on the GBA, but seeing a DS version with multiplayer would be pretty nice.

But does it still have the rockin' theme music from Amiga days?

I don't think that PC version was ever released.  Wasn't that for some kind of "Speedball Tournament" or something?  It was supposed to be MMOG-ish, if I recall.

The PC version was just like all the other versions (a good thing), but I always liked the 'feel' of the movement better on the Amiga.

There is a new trailer up over at the official site in the downloads section, but it unfortunately doesn't show any real game footage.  There are some screenshots at the top of the News and Game Info pages, though. 

By the way, am I the only one for whom playing high def Quicktime movies totally sucks?  Their player gives me like 1 frame a second on something like this and I find it a joke that I can run full screen real-time rendered games 60 times faster than their shitty video playback.  (which is why I use the VLC media player for them, but still)

I refuse to use Quicktime.  It could quite possibly be the worst written piece of Windows software to ever hit the mainstream.

I've had to fix too many friends/family computers due to them installing Quicktime.  I wish it would just get flushed and go away.

Yeah, and a really, really fantastic game of it's own.

Can't wait for Speedball II to hit!

Did this game make a showing at the latest convention by chance?

The official website has seen some activity lately.  Of course, I'm still confused on the pc vs. 360 versions of the game.

Three posts in a row by me, which makes me think noone really gives two hoots, but...

This has apparently shown up on xbox live arcade, so if anyone has a chance to check out the demo and report, that would be cool.

I'm hoping it's beyond awesome, but I'm skeptical.

Gracias.

I tried the trial version.  It was not as fun as I remember Speedball being on the Atari ST.

I thought it was odd that the demo doesn't give access to the updated graphics mode.  In old-style 2D mode, I can barely tell what's going on.  That may be due to my never having played the game before, though.  I did read the instructions, but I felt a little lost.
