    Hi all!

    I don't mean to plug my blog in any way, but I have just written an article about the game Death Tank. Some of you may have heard or know about it. It has a remake on Xbox 360 and the original was hidden in Duke Nukem 3D on Sega Saturn (of all places) but it's one of the greatest games every made (imo). I was wondering if anyone else has played it - new or old, and wishes to start up playing it again on Xbox 360? Perhaps we could get a UK group going or something?

    Essentially Death Tank is kind of like Worms but real time and much better than the sh!t that company has turned that game in to.

    If you do have the chance to give my article a read you can find it
    here.

    I played it through 'Exhumed'. Didn't even know there was a version in Duke Nukem 3D. I'm a big Saturn fan..

    Also played it through Exhumed. Damn, Exhumed on the Saturn was superb, and then it had Death Tank hidden away too, without a microtransaction to be seen.

    Played this via my mates Duke 3D, good times. It wasn't in the PAL version of Exhumed sadly, something I only discovered after going through the hell of collecting all those hidden dolls.

    Haha :) Yes there is a remake but it's really good - except that no one plays it online anymore. Good fun if you have a few friends (up to 4) over and don't mind playing with bots. It's a bit of a rip off at 1200 ms points though.

    You only needed a save file from Duke Nukem 3D and Quake to unlock this as an option in the menu on Duke on the Sega Saturn.

    Awesome game.

    Edit: also I'm talking about Death Tank Zwei! :)
