  1. Electronic Arts has filed for two new trademarks concerning a game labeled "Desert Strike."  If that title doesn't sound familiar to you, it's probably because you're too young to remember it. That particular shoot'em up was released "way back" in 1992....

    Those games were so much fun and I wouldn't mind seeing a revival. I loved the sound it made when you'd hover over ammo or fuel and you'd hook onto it and drag it back into your chopper.

    Good memories! I had it on Sega Mega Drive. 11 years old in 1992, 21 years later and still a gamer :)

    I can confirm that was the single memory that stands out from that game
    the hook

    I remember that game still I was 10 years old

    Almost every time I turned my GameBoy on, I had to play this game at some point. I absolutely loved it.

    An awesome game!

    I wouldn't want it turned into a 3D FPS / Flight sim game though. It would be desert strike.

    I hope if they make a revival of this that they keep the isometric view.

    A lot of current games have had a lot of success with this. Just look at Starcraft, Diablo, League of Legends.

    Hmmm a MOBA style Desert Strike??? That could be all kinds of fun.
