Hmm but is it really for arcade operators Emph? I doubt many will buy it, most buyers will be enthusiast owners I bet.

I do understand system11's point but I do not agree with it entirely, its too generalised. Hey ho, opinions eh, curse of the net :lol:

Yeah, they already made changes based on the previous trailer reception, and this time they're going to send a prototype to a seasoned player for proper testing, apparently. I have a good feeling about this one, it really prods the nostalgia nerve.

Yah, I've put them all on location but Last Hope and Gun Lord did extremely poorly.

Forgot to put an order in for this one....

That doesn't surprise me, particularly Gunlord which is structured more like a console game. I'm sure this would fare best of all unless the scoring hits a ceiling easily.

Was that the original Last Hope or Last Hope: Pink Bullets? I'm curious what the Japanese players thought of the games and if there was anybody who played the latter for score.

PB, I don't believe the original was ever available on MVS. It did so poorly that I've only seen 2 players on it but they did play for score.

Neo XYX will be all kinds of badassary. Such big, bright fluffy sprites. I just want to eat them.

The regular edition is available now apparently (as well as reprints of older games)

Damn, I should have sold my carts a month or so ago. They'd better not start reprinting LEs.

Well, I'm not now - no point, I have the LE of Gunlord. Last few I saw were very highly priced, but if people can just buy them again I guess those days are over. Reprinting LEs is a slap in the face to anyone who supported the game through pre-orders and LE premiums.

I never bought one of their games, I hesitated to buy NEO XYX but I'm glad I didn't !
Reprinting LEs is just a dishonest practice ! :eh:
