Are there any decent shmups for the Japanese/Asian PS3?

From what I was hearing, the game wasn't all that great... incredibly short, even by shooter standards, and not all that exciting.

Those 360 shmups need to get released in the US. I'd buy them all.

I played the Raiden Fighters Aces demo that's on the 360 JPN XBLM. It's pretty sweet.

Come on, bring this shit out here somebody!! :pray:


Give it up, it's too "Japanese" for the American market. note the parathesis for tongue in cheek due to MS's douchebaggy explanation for not bringing "Magatama" out here during the era of the Xbox.
Just give it up and buy a Japanese 360. Accept that MS and 3rd parties more then anything expect you to fap heavy to Halo and it's ilk like the PC Johnny come latelys did that heavily bought the Xbox to begin with. Once you accept that you'll realize MS won't go too Japanese in our market while Sony didn't care AS MUCH about that.

No thanks. I like my space ships going more than 3 miles per hour. A paraplegic could fuckin' sprint faster than that game.

You can turn up your movement speed. . .

I love the R Type series, so I'm hyped.

NCSX and Play-Asia have opened pre-orders for Shooting Love 200X for Xbox 360, a compilation of Triange Service PS2 / Dreamcast shooters Exzeal and Trizeal.

Unless Microsoft reverses it's stance on these games, I'm pretty much inline to import a Japan 360 soon.

You might as well. All the Japanese exclusives plus the same American games cheaper?! It's a no lose situation except for Culdcept Saga and Bullet Witch.

Shoot, I just found this thread. I'd been kicking around the idea of getting a 360 for Donpachi, or Raiden 4. What ultimately discouraged me though was the fact that they're imports, and the 360's not-so-stellar reliability reputation. I've got no qualms getting a Japanese system, or doing an import mod, but I don't want to be stuck a year later with a RRoD and no warranty to fix it.

I'll be picking a JPN 360 up prolly spring next year. As long as it has the HDMI ports, I'm guessing it'll be ok. Only going to do the barebones model.

Next PA sale, I'll grab what I can of the available 360 shmups.

Dangit, I just might buy a Japanese 360 too. Haha, in the meantime I guess I can start picking up the software I want.

gunm, do HDMI ports indicate a newer model which is (hopefully) less likely to RRoD?

In theory, yes. The HDMI models do have newer chipsets which allegedly improve heat dissipation, but I've heard of HDMI models RRoD'ing too.

I really don't have any experience on the Japanese models beyond what Cheapyd has been reporting with his.

Anyone played SoldnerX yet? Impressions?

Honestly, I'm going to wait until Sony has a sale on PSN games. $9.99 is cheap to be sure, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this go $4.99 at some point.

I've heard the levels in Soldner X are way too long... like to the point where you'll get bored blowing shit up. Now that's just not right!

Never! Blowing shit up never gets old. 8-)

I wonder what the "Plus" in Strikers Plus is supposed to be?

Wasn't Strikers 1945 Plus the Neo Geo Strikers game? I'll have to look it up.

EDIT - Pretty much. Here's the Wikipedia page. http://en.wikipedia....ikers_1945_Plus

From what I remember it was decent but not as good as Strikers 1945 II. Here's hoping that PSP game winds up being a compilation of some kind.

All I remember about Strikers 1945 Plus (and I think this might've been the case in Strikers 1945 II) is that the names of all the ships you can use are obviously just Microsoft's Word Art. It's so ghetto, since it looks like a fucking Powerpoint slide.

Apparently, 1945 Strikers Plus is just a variant of Strikers II, but for Neo Geo. Seems a little much to give the game it's own release.

I don't remember ever seeing Plus in any of the MVS machines I visited back in the day, but it could've just been a non-memorable game. :p

I hadn't heard of it until it started working in NeoRage X. It was about as no-name as NG games get, I guess.

Though pretty much any Psikyo shmup is non-memorable, IMO, since they're all the same thing.

File this under wishful thinking, but at least we can confirm that someone at Treasure is actually thinking about it:

If they did do an XBLA or disc release, I'd be all over that shit--much better than paying $175-$500 for the original game!
