Download of the week: Radiant Silvergun - the classic and (formerly) ultra-rare bullet hell shooter

Platform: Xbox Live | Publisher: Microsoft | Developer: Treasure | Price: 1200 MS Points

It’s been 13 years since its first release on the Saturn and if you weren’t one of the few mad people who decided to pay more than £100 for a Japanese import, you have probably never played Radiant Silvergun. So what’s better than being able to play Treasure's classic shoot ‘em up in all new hi-def glory? Add in an online co-op mode and a fraction of the Saturn version's eBay price and you've got a winner.

Want more DLC? Check these out:

Renegade Ops: XBLA/PSN | Sega | £9.99/1200MS Points

We’re on a shoot 'em up kick today but if you don’t like sci-fi style shooters then why not a more conventional car combat shooter. Well guess what? Right here is one.

Mega Man: Dr Wiley’s Revenge | 3DS eShop | Capcom | £3.60

Another Game Boy classic has found its way onto the 3DS. The most common consensus is that Dr Wiley’s Revenge is freaking hard. So if you’re up for a challenge or like 8-bit cuteness with your sadomasochistic tendencies, this is for you.

    I am one of those mad people who shelled out about £100 for a copy for the Saturn....Which was about 2 weeks before the announcement that this was coming to the HD consoles as DLC. Ouch. Still, was worth it and I highly recommend everyone check it out. I may even pay for the download on my 360. A pretty good endorsement of the games quality.

    I'm very pleased that your Virgin Media line works for you! I have had to leave them as Online Gaming is a no go with them.

    Is it? I online game with them occasionally, never had any big issues..

    I played this in a Japanese arcade, and while I don't think it was as good as it's been hyped to be, I would certainly get it on PSN. Too bad it doesn't seem to be coming, though.
