No saves? Presumably it operates on a cut down level set rather than having you play the whole thing (3 hours?) in one sitting?

Nope. You have to do each stage in one go, which takes about 100-120 minutes.

Liar. I've known you only from latexmachomen.com and pantysniffers.org forums.

Some thoughts before I've had a chance to play.

The art style is weird. Sometimes it looks fantastic, other times it looks cruddy. And this is coming from someone who loves the look of Street Figher II HD Remix.

I think it has to do with their being no pixelation in the sprites and the thick outlines. It's reminiscent of those "made in flash" games from the early 00's. Some stuff is really incongruent as well, which is weird since some of the animations and sprite work are obviously high quality. When it comes togther, it's less than the sum of it's parts.

Watching some videos online; the combo system and wall bouncing look like nice game play updates. Definitely what I'd want to see in a modern reimagining. The two hour length for a 1CC is insane though. Not sure if I'm up for that endurance test... I think I would prefer this to be shorter, or maybe have some levels outside of arcade mode.

Looking forward to jumping into it later today.

Agreed on the length although it clearly wasn't designed to be played in one sitting. BK3 has a comparable clear time of about 90 minutes for the good ending (for 'normal' play anyway, speedruns seem to clock in at about an hour)... if I have one criticism about the older games it's that a full session can sometimes be a bit exhausting, so a scaled back or 'beginner' arcade mode would definitely have been appreciated. Maybe cut the 2 levels with duplicate bosses, or the concert level (my personal least favorite)?

Old news, and there are comments on it earlier in the thread (not to mention it was covered in preview articles). Adam and Cherry have a dash/run.

Just read the entire thread this place is crazy!

Happy that other people are annoyed with the 2 Ethel fights and the two divas in the museum.

Managed to do the train stage in 7 mins so I dont mind Ethel to much but asking for a brand new bosses probably is not likely!

When fighting barbon the music is wrong!

I really hope the the original trilogy ost gets fully added I am not a fan of those chip tunes in the retro soundtrack. And I fully refuse to listen to the new ost. A playlist feature is also a must.

I read somewhere that there are no plans for dlc. I hope that is not true it will be silly to not support the game.

I am happy with the game and it has enough content.
I just played the hell out of it and I kind of need more.

With that big map of the city one could dream of a couple of more stages with new enemies! Preferably the unused ones from the artwork.

I just want more content. I'm enjoying my time with the game and if DLC gets me more so be it!

Are the GOG leaderboards and the Steam ones separate? I assume so.

Anyway, got #5 on GOG for stage 6 on Hard mode. It's much easier to get an S rank on the harder modes due to more enemies.

Loving Floyd by the way. He's lot of fun.

The developers did an AMA on Streets of Rage 4 today. A balance patch will be coming. Old Man Axel will be buffed and enemies' armor will be reduced.

Here's also a quick summary on the AMA:

Axel buff? Yes!

I like how they were mum on the hd characters as dlc. I'd bet they're coming.

That's easy money.
