Ever wanted a fighting game with bad controls that can last less than 30 seconds? How about two!? Deadliest Warrior: Ancient Combat is a combo pack of some of the most oddly successful XBLA/PSN games, Deadliest Warrior: The Game and Deadliest Warrior: Legends. The differences between the two games is that one has a few more familiar faces and a rip off of RISK: Factions inside it. Now I know what you’re thinking, “Why would I buy these extremely old XBLA at $30?”. Well they have an answer for you! If you ignore every other holiday release and love Deadliest Warrior, you’ll get 2 “exclusive” Deadliest Warrior TV show episodes and get a stage along with 30 extra Weapons for Deadliest Warrior: Legends. If you’re still possibly interested here’s the press release from Gamestop.
