Wow, just WoW! Great to see it contains both R-Type and R-Type 2. Love that instant switch between 2d and 3d look, great. Can't wait to get my hands on it. Shame they did not included R-Type LEO, but who knows maybe its coming one day. We can always hope.

I think R-type is still the unbeated king of shoot'em ups.

With Thunder Force VI coming out in just a few days, it feels like 2008 is going to be the year of the shmupers!
But seriously "arcade mode"? Is this "World of World of R-Type"?

you are definitely right. I still remember beating the hell out of the SMS and PC-E versions ...

But why do they show the last boss? That's insane! Wonder if part one contains that "Special Stage" ... but I guess not

Is it a faithful remake or will there be extra content and features?

Edit: Apart from the 2D to 3D thing, I see that.

LEO was okay but didn't seem like a proper R-Type game.
I'd rather see R-type III, even though it wasn't in the arcade.

I REALLY want Sega to bring Thunder Force VI out on the Xbox360 on XBLA or even on disc as a full price game! :(

    GriftGFX Oh, and back to how awesome Firaxis is: I can't play BE fullscreen, and they've known about this bug since prior to the release. They're definitely masters ;) (21 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX GTX 770 is the equivalent of a 680. I have trouble beveling that a 760 won't run this game fine. 660ti even. (22 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Still, sooner or later these system requirements will become standard as recent games indicate. So best to just upgrade to a GTX 970 and an i7, or to buy a PS4. (29 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @GriftGFX: To put into perspective, both BF4 and DA:I have the same specs and what is recommended for them in CPU and GPU is below AC:Unity's minimum requirements. Like you said, hard to believe. (32 minutes ago)
