Retro City Rampage launches on XBLA

Today, Retro City Rampage released on XBLA for 800 Microsoft Points (instead of the previously mentioned 1200). Developed almost entirely by one person, Retro City Rampage is an 8-bit open-world parody/tribute to video games of the 80s and 90s and pop-culture. Think of it as an 8-bit Grand Theft Auto but funnier. You'll see references to some of the most beloved video games and movies of all-time. To be honest, the game is so ridiculous that it can't help but be fun. 

Included is a Story Mode for open-world adventure and an Arcade Mode for quick action. The city is interactive with tons of shops, mini-games, collectibles and more. Retro City Rampage is one of those games that you just need to play and experience. if you haven't already bought the game on the PS3, Vita or Steam, I recommend you do so now.
