Beginning today, the PC versions of Advent Rising and Bloodrayne 1 & 2 will be available for download via Steam.

 

Perhaps the most exciting title of the Majesco quartet is developer Double Fine’s Psychonauts, a critically acclaimed platformer that unfortunately tanked at retail, relegating it to cult status. Psychonauts will be available in early October, and the pricing has yet to be announced.

 

Bloodrayne will sell for $9.99, while Bloodrayne 2 and Advent Rising will go for $19.99. Valve is offering a 20 percent discount for customers who buy the games released today within the first two weeks of availability.

 

Majesco originally published the four games before it changed its strategy from publishing premium-priced console games to exclusively handling budget and handheld software.

It's well worth the full price I paid at $49, so I'd say anything less than that and you should be in.

 

Ya but typically I'm not big on 3d platformers/3rd person perspective games so there is the chance I may not enjoy the gameplay. I am the guy who didn't enjoy Prince Of Persia and Ninja Gaiden so I am always a bit sceptical when it comes to the genre. I did however enjoy the MDK games back in the day...that is until the 2nd one start throwing jumping puzzles at me. Jumping puzzles are probably the most anoying gameplay mechanic I can think of. Hate them with a passion!

 

Anyone care to shed some light on the gameplay? Can it be compared to any other game?

If it helps, I didn't like POP or Ninja Gaiden either.
