I loved that game so will buy it at some point but I've got far too much to play at the minute.

It was playable at a event and is known to be programmed by M2, but no release details were ever announced - not even the platform. However Cave haven't denied it will be on XBLA, but they are basing their decision on Guwange's sales and had no decision when interview by Retro Gamer. I'd guess that interview was done about 4-6 weeks ago so a lack of announcement at the Feb matsuri suggests it's not coming at least until Nin2 is out, and they've stated since then they've no more 360 titles to announce

But hey, you could always buy my pcb :awe:

That G-Rev shooter is out now, as well as the new Rush 'n' Attack. There's tons of stuff on sale too.

Is Strania an arcade port or an original XBLA game? I'd not heard of it before last week. The music's fab and it has G-Rev's usual large explosions but I just not a big fan of melee weapons in shooters.

Simultaneous Nesica arcade release.

Love it. Wasn't too sure at first what with the short levels and millions of weapon pick ups but the scoring system is relatively straight forward and the key seems to be in picking the right weapons at the right time and making the most of the overdrive meter thing. It's really addictive and continues off by default :thumbup: Graphics are quite basic but there is a lot of scaling going on and epic mecha wars in the background. Probably running on the SNRD engine. The music is fantastic.

I think your average Japanese arcade gamer would probably do both. People still like to set scores in the arcade after practicing with the ports.

I think the xbla release is more for the benefit of the likes of us silly foreigners. Pang's post is the first time I heard it was an arcade title, and it stands to reason that they'll probably have more interest in the arcade version in Japan than the xbla release

Isn't that the same game they announced as pure arcade released months ago, when they also location tested it in an arcade?

Yes.
Afterburner Climax is 400 MSP this week. You'd be mad not to at that price.
