What you are not excited to buy Thrustlander? Come on Critic for 50 bucks less than a xbox 1 series X you can buy an Atari VCS!!
Then play an amazing game like Thrustlander!!!! https://store.steampowered.com/app/1411040/ThrustLander/

It is such a major release that it does not even have a promo on you tube. It is basically gravitar.
Most games on Steam have loads of people talking about it, wondering when it will come out. This has 0 discussions. Though it does look like a fun retro game. I will wait a few months then Fanatical or Humble will pick it up and it will be 20 cents.

$400??

I find it amusing how the promo pics include two kids playing PONG.

Wait, you didn’t know?? Pong is the new GTA. It’s all the rage among today’s youth.

But it's Pong in 4K though... Ah who am I kidding? I am definitely buying one of these things which pretty much guarantees it will be completely DOA and discontinued in about a year.

Have to make room on a shelf next to my Ouya.

Was this one of those kickstarter projects?

The only thing I can think is that they just needed to put out ANYTHING in order to fulfill their obligations necessary to keep all the cash.

lol

You know a Kaboom with Tempest 2K graphics would actually be pretty fun. I think the stick spins instead of giving you a paddle controller.

Critic! You're up buddy. Bite one for the team and let us know how it plays?
