I just noticed that under the main character's face is what it seems like a lifebar. Maybe this game breaks the convention of one-hit deaths in run'n'gun games?

Regards.

Thats bar is the combo meter for the chain base scoring.

Supposedly reworked grunt. Anyone know what they looked like before? I can't tell a difference, especially now that old footage and pics are gone.

The old footage can be found here.
Not that much of a difference as far as I can tell, the gun seems to be a bit smaller and the uniform slightly darker (though that might be the CRT), the face has gotten some more details and the black border is way slimmer. An improvement to be sure.

Due to a licensing deal this game may be not available any more after the initial print in the MVS format. For now it will be available for pre order until 31th December 2015.

From their page.

All this year to preorder... i like that wide shopping period. But... did i misunderstood or they're saying that is not going to be reprinted ever? Also they do not say anything about AES.

And that licensing deal sounds misterious, isn't it?

WTF that sucks just checked it out myself. But yeah, I wonder about the AES version now. :rolleyes:

I wonder who they are licensing to. Maybe this will get an actual release on newer consoles? They were trying to make the jump with Gunlord through a kickstarter type thing. Or, dun dun dun... could it be DavidG?

I guess they updated their text

Due to a licensing/platform change this game may be not available any more after the initial print in the MVS format. For now it will be available for pre order until 31th December 2015. AES pre orders are still scheduled. Details will come later this year.

Interesting. I always assumed that MVS sold more copies, but sounds like that is not the case? As far as platform change, I am guessing they are referring to Dreamcast copies of the game. I take it that this will either get a Steam release or digital on newer consoles. Their games always require an update or two to fix minor bugs, which was the case with XYX and people hating on the Dreamcast version.

Maybe MVS only sold more copies over a pretty long period of time and the home versions always sell out with lightning speed but are less.

for the life of me, I can't understand why they would choose to make a game that so blatantly rips metal slug off - look at the screenshots - and the art work even emulating Metal Slug's.
my final comment on the matter I swear. I just wish they had put so much of this hard work to better use. how difficult could that have been? it's dumb

He's standing above the ground line on the top of the grass against the building, unless he's standing on the post. I hope stuff like that gets fixed.

It looks like he's standing on top of the post/roadblock in that second image.
