US 360 owners: something to tide you over till Ikaruga

Post by Luriden » Tue May 22, 2007 1:45 pm

Download Aegis Wing off XBLA. It's a free download. Yep, full version for free. It's a decent shooter, nothing too special but co-op is pretty fun.

Is Ikaruga seriously getting a release on 360? It's like five years old? I at least hope they update some of it.

For a shooter it did seem like a pretty good game (Aegis Wing that is). I personally wouldn't pay for it though but Im not a fan of shooters at all. Lost interest in them back in the Atari 2600 days.

It is actually, just need to do 2 players.

The ships can attach to each other and you can share the shield bonus. You fire as one and fly as one, coop really kicks ass.

How many points is Ikaruga going to eat?

800 I'm guessing. I don't think it's been announced yet, but I'm almost 100% sure of it considering most of the modern games released on XBLA are 800.

But it's out on Dreamcast! The system this site is dedicated to. Playing it on anything but a DC is blasphemy!

People are dropping over 50 bones to pick up used copies on Gamecube off of Amazon - It will be interesting to see if more shooters will come out that way...kind of makes me sad to think that such a great game is going to get bastardized into a download. I felt the same way with Symphony of the Nitght's release as well. O well...

SOTN was basically a perfect port. I don't see anything negative about it aside from lowering the originals value.

Yeah, seriously. It's better to not be able to play it at all without paying $50 on eBay than to have the game easily accessible to anyone and everyone for cheap. Fuck the non-geeks.

True to that statement. Too bad Treasure and MS don't feel the same.

There are groups out there that think playing it on anything other than the original arcade cabinet is blasphemy.

I never did get past that third level and gave up on it. I had the GC version, but gave it up along time ago before I knew what it was worth.

I only plan on getting Ikaruga if it has online co-op. I played the DC version and sucked really badly, so if it's a straight-up port I probably won't bother with it.
