    Yeah. Gradius admittedly got there first too, released the year before Darius, it's more or less the blueprint for the 'modern' horizontal shooter as it would be defined through the eighties and...

    The 1986 arcade original is obviously more primitive than the sequel, but how much mileage you'll get from it will likely depend on how much you enjoy the series in general. The arcade version used...

    I only buy what I will play, and I have about a hundred MD/MCD titles. Thankfully I took care of many of the heavy hitters in the JP library within the first few years of starting up, and I have no...

    Just look at the graphics in Natsume's Ninja Saviours: Return of the Warriors for an idea of what SOR4 could look like. There's a real pedigree there since members of the original team developed the...

    Great post, Barone. Perfectly sums it up.

    I enjoy Gynoug a lot too, more than fan favourite TFIII in fact. Not a game I ever played as a youngster so it had to wait until Kega Fusion before sampling it's unique body horror styled shooting...

    I've said my piece regarding the graphic style earlier in the thread so I won't revisit that, but as far as the music is concerned I'm hoping the compositions aren't too nostalgia driven. Calling...

    It's certainly had more than a few graphical assets cut out, but even as it is Sunset Riders always struck me as quite an ambitious port for a 4 MEG cart. Since it released in 1992 by a big hitter...

    The bunch of full-screen cutscenes aside, I always wondered where the 64 Megs in Pier Solar was used. The variety in enemy types and their animation seems limited compared to other 16-bit JRPGs. IIRC...

    That's Shikigami no Shiro II though, not Psyvariar 2.

    @ Lync: I'm fairly sure the Japanese company Success developed the Psyvariar games, Skonek are Korean though and are known for the feudal...

    Great analysis section on each game! I'm of the same opinion regarding much of what you wrote.

    Good to see Twin Cobra make it into your top 10. It's certainly extraordinarily brutal as a result...

    The PS2 has a shooter library that rivals the Dreamcast easily I would say - just a quick list of games that didn't appear on DC as well as a refresher:

    DoDonpachi Daioujou
    Espgaluda II

    Nice.

    Last I heard of G-Rev they were involved in Dariusburst CS somehow. I believe Triangle Service just released a port of Arcade Love + Pengo to Switch, and although Milestone itself may no...

    I don't tend to have much of a social presence online, but if I do, it's going to be through Sega-16 or Shmups forum. Both forums are populated by some great personalities, and the aggregate of...

    My money's on Pulseman being one of the rejected games for sure. Such a shame but there's not a lot that can be done about the offending stage. I know M2 neutered some of the bomber FX in their...

    Ordered the Switch version on PA. Certainly can't argue with the price point, I would have paid twice that if I had to.

    Amen to that. His YM2612 covers are hot to death - personal favourite is probably what he did with Metamorphic Force, IMO even by his standards that track is on another level, it just sounds...

    I've started to notice where games switch between the two modes, mainly since it sometimes, but not always, makes my Sony LED think it lost the signal so it shows the OSD status thing.

    So what's the status of the Datenmeister chip atm? Was it only a rumour it wasn't being implemented on account of the video seen at the 'release party', or was there solid confirmation at some point?...

    The Mega CD arrived with some pretty lukewarm software, that and the high price tag and few people were going to bite.

    Same. Nothing beats the classic forum format IMO. Reddit hasn't clicked with me for whatever reason either.

    Just got around to watching this, was amazing. M2 are truly masters of their art. I guess Digital Eclipse was in there since they were one of the first outfits to handle commercial emulation.
