The latest Famitsu issue revealed that R-Type 3D is coming exclusively to Playstation 3.
Awesome a new R-type. I love R-type games.
never played R-type. Im not even sure what to expect at this point? scrolling shoot em up? o_O *waits for some gameplay*
Expect the most hardcore shoot them up game ever!
Yeah Man, R-Type is old school. Twitch reflexes, memorizing patterns, never blinking, talking or even wiping the sweat from your brow. Games used to be so hard, yet we seemed to play for hours on 20c. Personally, I live in hope that if Wonderboy and Rygar ever come to PSN, I will mess myself.
Oh snap! o_o Never played one either but I'm a shooter fan so...>:P
3-d? im hoping more like 2.5 3d doesnt work wit this game at all. and all u potential disagreers who has never played a Rtype game, dont disagree just fdor the sake of it
Bathyj R-Type..... Oh Yeah.. Loved Rygar more though... Still the game that ate more 20c than any other for me was Sinistar.... I thought Defender was hard (Wave 3 onwards) until I met..........................
You want to know what to expect? Its much like stuffing your butt with you favorite ice cream - or frozen yogurt - and shoving a lit stick of dynamite after. Now, playing isn't the explosion, its the expectation.
Youtube and google is your friend if you don't know what to expect.
Defender Hard?. I owned that game on Atari to the point i restart multiple times without dieing.
There's a game I used to play just like this as a kid. We used to play it at my after school club. It might have been R-type but I'm not sure. All I remember was that it was a 2-D side scroller shooter, like R-type. We played it on the megadrive. All I remember from it was there was a forest level and there was a blue/black level where these tentacle things attacked you. Anyone have any idea what that is?
Of course it could work in 3D if done well. Star Fox already proven that the classic shoot 'em up concept works fine in 3D. I never really liked the 2D shooters, but loved Star Fox for SNES (Super FX-chip, yey! :-), so I hope this is going to be something similar.
Is it a PSN title or full retail Blu-Ray?
Not a fan myself but R-Type has a HUGE following especially in the UK I remember these games on my commodore as lad.
R-Type...dear lord, the memories. Those games were HARD. I mean, on a difficulty scale of one to 10, if Demon's Souls is a 10, R-Type was a freaking 12...
...or whatever that game is called is a good game if you liked R-Type. It's pretty challenging as well and I like it.
There wasn't supposed to be any more r-type games after 'final'. Perhaps this is a remake of delta or final in psudo 3d like what is available for the 360 (rtype dimensions). that is a sweet remake of the original. Could be like the old school psx game philosoma in the forward scrolling levels.
Had it for Sega master system and have it now off PSN. Never finished that game. Bullets and enemies just litter the screen in level 7 out of 8 levels. PCengine(Japan Turbographics16) only had the first four levels.
cmrbe Good for you. However could you do that on the Original Williams Arcade unit ? I never played the 2600 version... As Wiki states. " The level of difficulty of Defender is very high" http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
i want this game and thats that.
I had the 3d R Type for my ps2 back in 03-04. It put most shooters from this gen to shame. It was a mix of side scrolling and top to bottom but the way it was designed made it 3d - ish. Let 1 of my mates borrow it in return for Pes and never saw it again, though Pes was actually awesome back so at the time I didn't mind.
original was awesome when I played it at the arcades.
OH YEAH I hope it has multiplayer
>> so is this psn game ?? never heard of it
you fail. i hope you don't consider yourself a gamer, lol jk.
I'll definitely download this. I've been wanting a new R-Type game :)
Is on fire. Loved this game. hardcore side scrolled now in 3d yeah
Console war over. Peace declared.
Peace?. There can be no peace.
bu-bu-buh the ps3 has no games!!!
and while we are wishing, could we get gradius 5 in HD, that game actually looked like a next gen game on PS2.. Gradius is definately the most hardcore side scrolling shooter on the PS2.. make it back in HD on the PS3 and then give as a remake of Darius from the SNES and make those all in HD and have them exclusively on the PS3. It'll be awesome. as i love those games.
and Gradius are an old school hardcore shooter games. Those games are really hard. If you're familiar with Gradius, you'll know the code "UP UP DOWN DOWN LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT B A START". *sigh* Those were the days.
Isn't it UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT B, A, SELECT, START. That is also the Contra code.
Not a shmup. But a starfox HD game in the r-type world I will die.
grabs bucket place your tears in here bots
What tears? This game came out ages ago, lol. Getting moar and moar desperate huh?
so did Halo 3 and that's all you bots seem to be playing nowadays
Chris, it says it's a new iteration, hence the "3D" in the title. R-Type rocks, but it's hard as balls!
Wow, you're so good at insulting me. Bringing up Halo when we have 8 other AAA exclusives at our disposal hahahaha.
"so did Halo 3 and that's all you bots seem to be playing nowadays" Lol. PRIME example of a ps3 fanboy who has been deluded by the psn. This is exhibit A folks, this creature can`t even COMPREHEND a game lasting as long as halo 3. So sad, let`s let him live in his own little world where nobody talks, at least he`s happy there.
"chrisulloa - 44 minutes ago PM Track Ignore 1.4 - Wow, you're so good at insulting me. Bringing up Halo when we have 8 other AAA exclusives at our disposal hahahaha. " YEAH! like Halo and gears a-a-a-and Halo and and...Forza! yeh forza and... and... ;_;
Lol, this is already on XBLA. Its called R-Typed Dimensions. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It is sweet but my favourite game of this type is Einhander for the original PSX. An HD remake or a sequel would be a definite buy!
on its on the 3fix me, but it gonna be better on psn and on the superior console
I want a sequel to G-Darius
Wow that game brings back memories. On a side note: The first side scroller I ever played though was Fantasy Zone on Sega Master System.
Wasn't there actually a 2.5D version on the 360? I'd also like to know what most of you are talking about. Never played R-Type. What are - bunch of slack-jawed mommas boys? This is the type of game that'll make you sexual Tyrannosauruses!
"What are - bunch of slack-jawed mommas boys? This is the type of game that'll make you sexual Tyrannosauruses!" ...just like me
so....i rather the original and best
3D PSN game!!!!!!!! Sweet!!!!!!!! PS3 has been making me really happy lately. =P
Wow, great classic!
Oh boy. I remember R-Type. I loved it on my ZX Spectrom 48k computer back in the eigthies. It was one of the best games that time. Cool
Love the r-type series, can't wait 4 this. Also i hope radiant silvergun gets a psn release.
Is this a remake of the one that came to 360 earlier, or is it a whole new game?
Oh, SNES R-Type, that takes me back. Love to see "UN Squadron" too... loved that game.
Does this mean that it's 3-D in the sense of... starfox? or 3-D on a 2-D plane? Because if it's number 2, then it's already on XBLA, which is weird because it says "R-Type 3D exclusively for PS3"... It's called R-TYPE Dimensions.
All my memories associated with this game are fun....and dying...a lot
