So you thought World of Warcraft Cataclysm would be the last game you had to get this year? Well, one last gem was just announced, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath. It’s coming to PC with the nebulous release date of “Holiday Season 2010”, and it should definitely go on your Christmas list.
If that title rings a bell, that’s because Stranger’s Wrath was originally released on the Xbox back in 2005. It’s one of the few great Xbox games that never got a patch to play on the 360, so the only way to play it has been by dragging your dusty old XBox out of the basement. Now, it is getting a port to PC, along with several other Oddworld games which can be bought individually, or together in a collection called The Oddboxx.
Stranger’s Wrath was a spectacular game for the XBox, a mixture of first and third person gaming, set in a Wild West part of Oddworld. Players controlled a cat-like bounty-hunter who was out to wrangle an assortment of outlaws by using a crossbow which shot live animals. Players could also control Stranger as he charged around on all fours like an animal for melee and platforming sequences. It also had a great story with an amazing plot-twist.
Pricing and exact release date are not available at this time.
