That’s it, really. We’re in the Friday afternoon news twilight zone, where even a 280 year-old game being up for an award counts as exciting. Anyway. Pacman CE, the game that stopped Eurogamer’s office last year, has been nominated for “Best Downloadable Game” by the eighth annual Game Developers Choice Awards. It released on Xbox Live, and was very good, apparently.
“A Game Developers Choice Award nomination for Pac-Man Championship Edition is an honor and testament to NAMCO BANDAI Games’ ingenuity and success in enhancing a classic arcade game for the Xbox Live Arcade community,” said Todd Thorson of Namco Bandai America. “Pac-Man has been a pop culture icon for more than two decades and we are thrilled to bring the fun and amusement of the franchise to the next generation of gamers.”
Good that, wasn’t it?
