It's true. Sega is bringing Virtual On Oratorio Tangram, its hardcore arcade mech fighting game, to Xbox Live Arcade. The re-release has been officially announced in the latest issue of Japan's Famitsu Weekly.
Any fan right now of Virtual On you are probably gonna need a new set of pants right now :D, Sadly I also expect high contrast reviews and word of mouth between the old and new fans and the people that just cant get into the game (which is surprisingly a good amount of people) I also wonder what are they gonna do to the control scheme? it would be epic if they launched it with the actual arcade sticks
Hardcore!! YEAH! wish i had the arcade controller for this lol
It wouldn't be epic with the two "jet" joysticks.
This game was pretty cool on the DreamCast. Now Bring: Crazy Taxi, Spawn FPS, Daytona USA, Jet Grind Radio and Power Stone to XBLA as well.
Some power stone love is definitely needed. :)! If not the old versions transported over, then at least a HD remix, if not that then a Power stone 3 please! :)!
but if they really do bring Virtual On, or any of those epic games you mentioned, id truly be jealous.
haha I remember this game on the DC. Still have it. Nice addition I guess, but getting a bit tired of the retro stuff. EDIT: "sigh* That would rock." QFT!! That would sooo rock!
It's funny how both PSN and XBLA need a bit more balancing. PSN goes for mostly original content like Flower and Echochrome. XBLA goes for primarily remakes/updates like Ikaruga and TMNT Arcade. Can you imagine an online service with access to TMNT, Ikaruga, Fat Princess, Castle Crashers, Braid, Flower, Wipeout HD.... *sigh* That would rock.
This is not a problem... Just get both 360 and PS3 (like me and many others) and you'll have access to everything! This way, I get Braid, Flower, Monsters, Rez HD, etc.
An XBL/PSN version of Steam just isn't happening. Sony and MS are two opposing egos.
Now where is Silent Scope? This was one of the Good DC games...
Ohhhh Silent Scope!!!! I'm having a flashback!!!! What a great game! Good call.
@GEC Your flashback reminded me of game flashback on amiga500.. Also i want cannon fodder on xbla..
Flashback and Fade to Black BOTH need the XBLA HD-redux treatment. Damn :(
@above you're right man.. Fade 2 black was amazing as well.
You can feel the over kill of content MSFT has to offer. All the smaller games will be heard about before all the upcoming game shows because all the other bigger games will hog the spotlight/time/space (GDC/E3/TGS)
why is this in the ps3 section
N4PS3................or I mean N4G!
To invite flamming and get it to 1000degs.
Last night there was an article posted before this one which stated it's coming to PSN as well. I don't know why Famitsu doesn't mention that, so now I'm confused.
i know MS got alot games waiting to be shown at (GDC/E3/TGS).
On a console it's rather meh.
Its alright, had it on my Mame emulator for awhile.
The controls were good on DC, but I hope they put the second stick to good use. VOOT is a pretty game.
as a ps3 fanboi.....will make me jealous . that is unless kojima will announce ZOE3 until then [email protected]!!!!! edit: oh wait its a old updated versio. okay thought it was new..whew!!!
Quit screwing around and give me my steel battalion loc 2 sega! http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Steel Battallion was Capcom...
I had virtual on for the dreamcast. I took the control cause it was my turn. I hit the button to make the guy zoom. I fired 12 missiles and watched them go boom. then I JIZZED!! IN! MY PANTS!!
Will it come to the West? How much will they charge for it or how much will you pay? What if it offered at $12~$15?
Coulda swore I read somewhere that it's coming to PSN too.
How the quarters flew when I visited the local arcade and sat at the Virtual On machine.
still got it on DC. Temjin is the mech.
That's cool. I never played Oratorio Tangram but I did play the Saturn version back in the day. I loved the more arcadey action as opposed to the drudging sim aspects of the Armored core franchise. edit: is this confirmed for the states?
