TARGET: TERROR SHIPS TO RETAIL

For anyone who knows me or has been reading BlueAlien.org for the past few years there is one thing that is certain.  I love gun games.  My collection of light guns and "zappers" is really to be marveled at (yes, I've considered a glass case to display them 16 of them in).  Finally though, a true "arcade-only" classic is coming to the home systems.  One of the many shooting games I cut my teeth on years ago is finally making it's way to the Wii.  Target: Terror is that beloved game we all remember where the bad guys looked, well, like escapee's from a Rambo movie and the civilians all looked rather hilarious.  Here is a direct link to Konami where you can purchase the game directly.  If you'd like to play a web-based version of the game you can do so at Target: Terror's official site here.  Lastly, if you'd like to read Konami's whole press release regarding Target: Terror hitting retails shelves you can click "Read More" below.
