I played Beyond Good and Evil on the xbox (when it was just an xbox) and I remember enjoying it quite a lot. You take on the role of Jade, a girl with a penchant for green lipstick, whose planet is under attack. She’s forced to head the resistance along with a pig guy and a Hispanic computer. She earns money by taking pictures of animals for scientific documentation. Since the original release in 2003, amid rumours of the sequel being off then on again, then off again a HD version of the original was released on Xbox Live Arcade.

This week it’s been reduced to just 400 points. I’m sorely tempted, but I really don’t have enough time to play the games I already have. If you missed out on this the first time round give it a look. It’s well worth 400 points, if not, the original 800 is was listed at.

Hopefully more interest in the original might increase the chances of the sequel making it to release.
