Space Invaders celebrates its 30th Anniversary this year. 1978-2008. How utterly awesome!

Space Invaders, along with Tetris and Pac-Man, are probably the only games my parents ever played out of will. I may have forced them to try a race or something, but they were from that generation.

Invaders is the definition of a Classic Game. It was one of the best sold arcade cabinets in history, and has been linked to the shortage of money in the late 70s - early 80s in Japan. It was that great!! Having a release on the 2600 boosted its popularity even more.

On June 17th, 2008, in commemoration of its 30th year, Taito/Square Enix released Space Invaders Extreme. Or as I like to call it, Space Invaders for 'our generation'. My first impression was "Whoa!! Trippy!!", because...well it is. It is also TOTALLY FREAKIN AWESOME!!!!!!!!

This game is a great 30 year a-toast to a classic. Here's to another 30 years of classic fun!! Happy Birthday Space Invaders!!

Space Invaders always had a groove to it.  This version does an outstanding job of bringing it out, and incorporating it musically.

Move-Stop-Shoot, repeat
 
I told you all to get it.
 
Ok so I just played the DS version, and I think that I just played more space invaders in those 20 minutes then I have in the past 20 years. Its a fantastic game....will definitely buy it!
