Saint Dragon is out

I never played this one before, it's pretty cool actually. The tail wrap blocking reminds me of Dragon Breed.

Also seems weird that Switch is just getting Salamader and Kiki KaiKai now. Wonder if it's due to those two having ports on Nintendo consoles? I picked them up years ago on ps4.

I have loved Saint Dragon unconditionally since it came out, own the PCB too, so of course I bought it right away.

That feeling when I got into third slot on the rankings, straight away (my nick is CAI) :D

Awesome! Always great to see those early high scores.

Is it bad that I'm playing Zero Gunner 2 for the first time and I like it? Is that allowed? I got it in the Psikyo collection and it's pretty dumb fun for me especially considering I've never played the original.

I find it very difficult to switch positions, does anyone just leave it mostly in the same position?

I fucking love ZG2. Wonton destruction and crazy transforming bosses. What's there not to love?

Yeah, ZG2 has always been a well-liked game around here. Neat take on 360' shooting, and possibly more accessible than other Psikyo titles with its less brutal boss patterns (at least in Loop 1).

Cannon Spike AKA Gunspike is worth a look if you like ZG2. Ground-based Robotron/Smash TV-esque, similar but different 360' action. :smile:

I think all the complaints about the Switch Zero Gunner 2 version are not about the intrinsic qualities of the original game, but rather the heavy inaccuracies of said port. (It's officialy named "Zero Gunner 2 minus" for a reason :lol: )
So there's nothing wrong for liking it if you've never played the game on PCB or DC.

Much like Sol Divide, I can appreciate Psikyo patterns in non-shmups, even if the execution isn't up to their best work (if nothing else, Psikyo patterns in SD and Cannon Spike make me go "awwww" :wink: ). It's been long since I tried to play Cannon Spike seriously, but I always don't mind popping it in for some heavy Capcom fanservice. Only thing it's missing is an RE character (c'mon, they have a biohazard level!!).

How hard is Shikhondo, and how fun is it? Is there grazing/buzzing? It's on sale for a good price and I'm tempted to buy it.

It's just ok. If it's super cheap go for it and you might get some fun out of it. I was personally frustrated as it looks like it should support Tate, but it's another game like Raiden V that has that "TV Tate" with letterboxing on the sides. As such I found it pretty unplayable in handheld mode on the Switch, though your milage may vary depending on what TV you play it on. The artwork itself is not bad, and there are some creepy boss designs, but it all looks fairly amateur in motion.

Pop'n Twinbee was released for NSO today. I haven't played this for some time. Should be good for some fun / nostalgia

In trying to find more about why AGES Fantasy Zone doesn't allow remapping the X button, I wrote Sega Support after M2 Support hasn't responded. While I got a response, it was nothing more than "the AGES ports were not developed for arcade sticks" and that the fact I was able to use the stick for the other games (Thunder Force, Gain Ground, Shinobi etc., all free of this issue) was "chance". Fantasy Zone was one of the biggest reasons I chose to buy a stick for the Switch, and this whole thing has left a bad taste, I expected a lot better from M2.

Sounds like a typical customer service response from someone who knows nothing about the game. At least it plays with joystick and the B and A buttons work great for the game. I wouldn't blame M2 for this. Dumb responses like these are par for the course with customer service reps, especially in the US. It's not like arcade sticks are the only reason for button remapping either.

It seems like I ended up fussing for nothing. I just opened the stick up and swapped the wires for X and A. Works perfectly now, and the only thing left to do is just remap the buttons for my other Switch games accordingly. Still a little odd, I know the start button has a gameplay function in Upa-Upa mode, but you think it would only be locked in that mode then. Oh well, everything worked out, and it's an excellent port. I haven't played Fantasy Zone in a while and forgot how much fun it was.
