Rez HD And Chessmaster On XBLA 30th Jan

They may be two very different games, both appealing to vastly different audiences, but that does not stop Rez HD And Chessmaster LIVE teaming up to hit the Xbox Live Arcade the Wednesday after next (30th January). Chessmaster LIVE boasts Voice-chat and Live Vision capabilities for head-to-head matches, along with competent AI for when you are playing offline – we guess the camera support is presumably so you can watch people think for a very long time. On the other hand, Rez HD will play pretty much the same as the Dreamcast and PlayStation 2 game of old, but will have updated sound, and be enhanced visually thanks to the crazy technology of the world we currently live in.

Bringing the Chessmaster series to Xbox Live Arcade makes the game accessible to a whole new audience,” said Peter Helm, business development associate at Ubisoft. “Chessmaster LIVE is not only a comprehensive chess program, but it is also one that has expanded beyond the traditional game to include exciting features for fans, both old and new.

Unfortunately, no one has commented on the upcoming release of Rez HD yet, but if they did I am sure it would go something like this. “We are extremely happy to finally be able to release Rez HD on the XBLA,” said Random PR man. “Thanks to the power of the system gamers can now finally experience Rez the way it was meant to be played, offering fans old and new a crystal clear high-definition look at the unique world created by Tetsuya Mizuguchi and his team at Q Entertainment“.
