Couple weeks ago Voltron the game came out on XBLA and PSN. Now I remember that I used to love Voltron. And I mean love Voltron. Get dressed up and punch people in the face love Voltron. Yet, I can’t remember a single thing about Voltron besides the fact that we is a giant robot put together by 5 mech-cats and he fights evildoers from space. I don’t remember the characters or the plot. I don’t remember the vehicle Voltron, non of it. But when I heard there was a game I was excited. I was excited for no good reason. Now I don’t want to go into a rational for cashing in on nostalgia and what it’s all about but I just want to point out that this game was purely made because of it.
Why? Because Voltron is an inherently flawed premise for a game (or at least one as a downloadable one). It supports 5 player co-op yay! But Voltron is only cool when he merges into one giant robot. ONE! How can you properly have 5 people trying to control one thing!
