Under Defeat HD - finally made it to stage 1-5 this afternoon before work. I finished the 1-4 boss with one life left and two bombs, so I knew I wouldn't last long going in. When the stage began, there was no gunfire sound effects from the chopper, and the soft stage music started to play, and I must say - definitely one of my favorite shoot em up experiences in the last 20 years. That was just a beautiful way to open up the final stage (not counting the second loop).

I'm still messing around with that OP red chopper that uses the missiles and has a bigger graphic than the others, but it's all for fun. I got killed fighting the cluster of enemies after the first two tanks in 1-5, and it did not aggravate me. I was too engrossed in the beauty of the music and the destruction I was raining down on them. ^_^

Just a fantastic game all around, so glad I was able to get it.

Wait till you get to the final boss. its really the only effing thing in that game that still baffles me to this day. I could 1cc that game all day long every day but that end boss is effing rediculous. Well atleast for me it is. It really isnt that tuff, but it does a couple things that I have to luck through to beat it.

Anyway, yes the transition to stage 1-5 is one of the best things in all of shmupdom. Great atmosphere, great music and truly one of the greatest levels ever.

I pre-ordered Ginga Force, it looks great!

I also pre-ordered a couple of shmups for the Dreamcast.

Strumwind [Limited Edition]
&
NEO XYX Collectors Edition

Now hopefully Strumwind won't be delayed too much longer because it looks and sounds badass!
