Shantae is back on PS4

Shantae is back on PS4

No need to introduce WayForward's excellent series Shantae considering it's still very popular today. The first game was originally released back in 2002 on Game Boy Color and it was later ported to different systems. At the end of June, the PS4 welcomed Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut and its multiple screen modes - 4:3, 4:3 with borders, 16:9, and the original resolution. The latter is the one we personally prefer as pixels aren't as visible and they don't become a distraction. The image is obviously much smaller this way but it never bothered us. We used the default mode (4:3 with borders) in the first four videos and switched to the original resolution in the last two. Note that you can see all screen modes at the end of the sixth video.

Gameplay #1 - 4:3
Gameplay #2 - 4:3
Gameplay #3 - 4:3
Gameplay #4 - 4:3
Gameplay #5 - Original
Gameplay #6 - Original

I think that if there was to be a GSY Instagram account, we should open it, don't you think? :)

Yeah, certainly. GSY has the best quality vids around, the site definitely deserves more traffic.

For whatever reason the masses aren't interested in quality, look at film, music even books and food, lowest common denominator rules, that said I think this website has the potential to be much more popular, it needs some sort of springboard.

It would be nice to have some new Metal Slug game. And made it like they did King of Fighters XIII, because this is the best 2D HD animation I have seen so far.

    asdfg @GriftGFX: they review them at EA offices for a couple of hours. How can they truly test it in that amount of time and discovering flaws in a closed controlled test environment. (3 Hours ago)
