Missile Fury in HD

Posted in Video Games with tags , , on August 31, 2010 by Justinzero

I know it’s hearsay at this point, but I can’t ignore freaking out over tenative news like “A sequel to Justin’s favorite Dreamcast game is heading to XBLA.”

I’ve already played the crap out of Bangai-O 1 and 2, but relish at the chance to unleash tens of thousands of missiles, in HD of course, once again against insurmountable odds (F-U final boss!). I’m hoping it transfers well onto a wide-screen format, and it would be nice if it featured some form of online CO-OP. The last Bangai-O game was on the small screen, and, to me anyways, wasn’t as fun to play as the original. Perhaps it was the scope of destruction, or lack thereof, that put me off – A feature that made the first game seem so large, yet so very small at the same time. I’m all for more missiles… in HD.

If you hear anymore on this news, fake or true, drop a comment below.

Missile Fury!

“Sega was beset by ridiculous expectations but managed to craft an entertaining, energetic game that not only honors Miku and her fans, but allows those same fans to design and share their own rhythm game creations.”

Zig’s latest review delves into the musical genre on PSP, convincing me to order a game I never thought I’d enjoy. I just have to make sure my “cool” friends don’t see me playing.

$35? You don’t say.

Yeah, no excuse. Stop reading, get your ass to Walmart and jump on the DQ9 bandwagon with me.

“…cuz that’s what I %$&*&^ learned in Jujitsu!”

BUAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Does someone want to remind this very angry, rotund chick (I think?) that World of Warcraft is just a GAME. Just walk away. Turn the game off. Make a trip to 7-11. Play something else.

Threatening a camera with a pipe and mock E.Honda maneuvers isn’t a great to make friends.

(Did anyone else see the part where she used a fat joke? Yeah, I thought that was funny too. For obvious reasons of course)

Are all of the lady WoW players like that?

Thank God! – Talk about ending on a positive note.

Showing Us How It’s Done

Street Fighter III enthusiast, Harmonaz, shows us how “simple” it is to pull off Akuma’s unorthodox special, True Kara Demon.

Yep. There you have it. Just mash the buttons and it will magically happen for you too.

*Pulls out Dreamcast*

Uh, it’s not working for me. Figures….

And for the hell of it, why not throw up a heated, Ken VS Yun, “tourny” match from a few years back.

Yes Chao, we both need to jam on some 2nd Impact together.

Dragon Punch Is, Like, So 90’s

Those hip to what’s cool nowadays (Monster Hunter Tri!!!!) know and understand how important Dragon weapons are. For a gunner, who’s job involves constant pummeling with proper ammo, the right kind of element can sometimes chew off minutes from a normally drawn out fight.

Take Dragon ammo for example:

O_o

Talk about getting bent over. Just a few more rares and I’ll own that gun – Simple to say, excruciating to achieve.
