    Yeah. I mean technically he’s right in that playing it 4:3 is the “correct” way if you wanted to play it as it was released. I just found it interesting that Progear has that history.

    Could be bollocks but I’m sure I read that Progear was actually a 16:9 game but Cave borked the aspect ratio or something. So playing it at 4:3 is actually wrong. (Going off MarkMSX saying he wouldn’t recommend playing Progear at 16:9)

    Thanks for this. Managed to buy it from that last link. Oosh nice setup @Spoonman

    Was the release of Natsuki Chrons an accident on PS4 or something? It has disappeared from the store.

    I just don’t “get” Darius for some reason. I really want to but it just doesn’t click for me.

    Very diff games. Raiden is iconic and a bit less hectic than Gunbird. If Raiden DX is an option then that, times a million. That’s my personal preference like. Gunbird is still great though.
  7. Yeah, fair play. I agree then, based on that criteria.

    Had a “barnstormer” of a run on Void Gore. When I say barnstormer I mean level 18, so about half as good as everyone else. Anyway, just to say that those skulls can fuck right off. and!! Whoever said that the bullets getting muddled in with the enemy sprites was bang on. That’s pretty annoying. but yeah, fucking skulls...
  9. I’m sure this dropped at the same time as a load of other stuff (on Switch) so put it on ice (watch list). Just to echo everyone else, it’s great. Very much reminds me of something that would have came out originally on an Amiga rather than arcades/consoles. it’s dripping in atmosphere (and humour). (can’t say I think it’s better than Blazing Chrome though. Probs just my preference.)

    Woah nice @Jonster! the top score on Switch is 3868315!! Second is 2613425. That’s one hell of a drop off. Also, my high score displays differently on the leaderboard versus what’s on the bottom of the main menu.
  11. Man, Huntdown is worth a tenner just for the moody as hell title screen music.
  12. Keep the screen orientation as “Normal”, set the Display to “Right”.

    Just keeping it warm... actually, it’s not quite as authentic as it gets. It’s a CPS2 conversion of Progear. Close enough though.
  14. Just tried it with the Lite. You can orient it so that it plays Tate with the correct u/d/l/r inputs on the stick if it’s oriented left (or right). It still uses standard buttons though. Agreed it could do with a bit more thought. You’d want it orienting to the right AND using the right stick. Edit: it’s a shame, the option to change movement to the right stick is there but greyed out. (Presumably because it appears to map the stick and buttons to movement)
