Will it ever be released outside of Japan, though?

More than likely, looks like an XBL game.

360 is getting some really good shoot em ups lately :D

It's not a XBL game, at least in Japan.

Music is really good though :P

You can't just take a shmup and make it widescreen without making it an entirely different game. These games aren't even 4:3, and yet, there were plenty released at retail last generation for PS2 (in Japan). It's a shame that only a handful of those releases made it west.

I read it was a budget release on disk all over the hell?
Three games of bliss on a disk, can't beat that action.

It would make little difference to the games mechanics in reality. (you would just have a wider area to shoot in and more enemies on screen)

Obviously you are a purist in that respect, but I would sooner see a proper remake with HD sprites.

Also how do you know it would make the game entirely different ? when its never been done, the reason being is that these devs are too lazy and want a quick Yen/buck.

All it would take is a new background and a wider area for sprites to move in, the game would remain the same.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (4 Hours ago)
