lol..I hope it's not another last hope. I canceled my preorder for the LE and now I don't think I'll ever get a chance to buy one (fuck 100+). I just don't think I'm willing to gamble on a game that has the severe potential to be poo. It's hard enough saving up for good games that cost $$$

Exactly... $50 sight unseen is far too much to ask.

Even after diving into the Broken Thunder adventure and coming out wrong (should have ordered the LE insteat of the regular - the game still is ok)
I still decided to "take the plunge" again and preordered it last week.
It looks stunning, has a great composer in charge of the Music, and I do not dislike euro-type shmups per se...
why not??? If you´ve got some money to burn that is...
And since I am selling of my Ibara for around that price... I could not go wrong...

Yeah, wonder what that is? :?

A whole new approach to shmups probably... ;)

Last hope seems to have mentally scarred a lot of people.- Seems that as soon as someone mentions a new shmup- they start comparing it to Last Hope...

Get over it! -it wasnt the worst shooter and probably won't be the last. -It was a valient attempt, let down by little or no playtesting.

Certainly on a par with Gradius 5 or RTFinal for best looking hori shump on a console.

Actually they said they decided to ignore the playtest results on purpose.

Judging by the screenshots, this looks like it could be the worst commercially released shooter of the 21st century.

Thank God that games aren't merely judged by WIP screenshots, eh? :wink:

Ummm, really? How come? You sure it's not the shrooms you just had? They look quite promising to me...

I don't really want to get involved in in-depth talks about this, but I can point out that I suddenly caught myself playing for about 2 hours non-stop instead of implementing the sfx changes I made over the last days. That'll get our chief programmer mad. :wink: The state of the game today is already excellent. With a team of about 20 people all-in-all, the project has already exceeded expectations. The publisher is backing this fantastically and overall presentation (and I don't just mean graphics and music), details, gameplay tweaking, test, bonuses, speech, huge aural refinements are making me proud to be a part of this. Last but not least, you may not be aware of this, but I am probably the only member of the team without a longer number of games already under my belt, my enrollment mainly due to the great LH music response. So - there are experienced veterans on this. NDA's and my contract prohibts me from saying more. :D

Well, the graphics are no more exciting than WinXP's default desktop theme, sprites and background don't blend well at all. Also, western ~1999 scifi-style oldschool isn't cool. The ship designs are the most retarded I've ever seen, comparable to what I used to draw when I was nine.

Screens also hint of worst gameplay design ever, but I won't go further into that. You'll see. ;)

Shots and items are not distinct enough. Use brighter / more visible colors and reduce transparency. And yeah, the designs and shot patterns look dull (like spraying water). And make the enemies more visible.

Play some Gradius V to see how it's done.

:) I agree. We're all Gradius V fans. Maybe you should just wait until the game is out. :wink:

And that´s all there is to say about this really...
And then everyone can go bitching about how they would have loved to also have the pre-order bonus and all...;)
