Elevator Action Returns?

 

Cleopatra Fortune?!?

 

(You need to update the topic because folks are going to miss this otherwise.)

 

Both of these games have really big emulation issues from the the Taito PS2 collection so hoping for much better versions this time around.

Layer Section is one of the best shooters ever. 

I’m 100% with you on this!
 

The Saturn had some superb shooters but for me this really was up there with the best of them. Fantastic news :)

Absolutely! I was recommended this as something to try after being so impressed with Radiant Silvergun, Battle Garegga, Soukyugurentai etc.

 

First impressions were "this is pretty good" and then not long after "this is absolutely superb, why don't more folk talk about this!?"

City Connection did the ropey Cotton Guardian Force collection. Hopefully this will be better.

 

That's actually great now following the performance patch (I assume that's the issue with it)?

 

I haven't touched Guardian Force yet to be honest but the saturn Cotton games are wonderful - even better to my taste than reboot.

What's the lag in that now? It was really terrible before (something like 10+ frames) and I know it was improved, but it needed a lot of improvement from there.

Google is your friend  :)

 

Belive it was 11, now 8 frames. If you're a 1 cc type then I guess it's still not for you. I've been really enjoying it though. Then again being 50 i suspect my reactions will be more of a hindrance!

I did Google it. Tons of complaints about the original lag, no hard figures for after. 8 frames is a lot. For reference, the Mega Man X Legacy collection, which got a ton of lag complaints - 8 frames was what the worst performing game did with the worst performing joypad.

Point taken. It's not affected my enjoyment negatively at all. Then again I'm not a hard-core schmupper anymore or looking for non handheld/emulation experience.

 

I think most people will really enjoy it. Borderlands for example is a problem for me if that gives things some context.

People seem to forget/not realise Guardian Force on ST-V already had around 7 frames of input lag, so an extra frame is far from a deal breaker. Fairly sure Cotton 2 and Boomerang were quite laggy in their original incarnations too.

 

Post-patch, I find the first collection plays just fine and I am someone who is sensitive to excessive input lag.
