[SWITCH] Sega Ages

Postby Gaijin Punch » Mon Apr 16, 2018 4:28 pm

Looks like Sega & M2 are bringing a Sega Ages series to the Switch. Looks like they are trying Gain Ground again, after the lackluster port on the PS2. Very curious how this will be handled due to the 22khz display in the arcade version. Big fan of it though, so if I actually ever buy a Switch would give these the time of day. Phantasy Star always seems to be a go to. Not sure that I need to play it again.

Note that Rieko Kodama is in charge of the series.

Oh I thought these were going to be ports of the PS2 Sega Ages series.

The PS2 Gain Ground remake was a bit flawed (e.g. the 3D camera angle making it difficult to judge whether you will get hit or not by enemy bullets and vice versa) but nevertheless, an interesting interpretation of the original and with a graphical overhaul. I was planning on doing a video walkthrough of it to upload to YouTube but it's a tough-as-nails game so I gave up that idea. Also, the soundtrack was composed/arranged by my favourite composer (see signature) so that's why I ended up trying that game in the first place.

As far as Phantasy Star is concerned, I'm content with the PS2 "Complete Collection" (Sega Ages Vol. 32).

I would love to have that on a portable device. I have it on my PS3, but that's boxed up in my closet.
