gh is definitely a better game overal, but panzer bandit isn't bad. it's sort of a futuristic anime spinoff in a way. the ending(s) are a bit... interesting in that they're so low key, lol...
well gameplay wise, I thought PanzerBandits ad better gameplay and combo system. Its just a bit short compared to Guardian Heroes and there no multiples paths.

I think the multiple paths was one of the best parts of Guardian Heroes. Of course I still haven't gotten around to playing it yet. I started playing the US Shining Force 3 a few days ago. Not sure if I'll play through the import parts 2 and 3 again. Especially because of the memory erasing problems :(

I just got Panzer Bandits. I'll probably give it a whirl but nothing more. There still a lot on my to buy list. Two more to add to my currently playing: -Shinobi (PS2) -- I played through Kunoichi a few times, and quite enjoyed it once I learned the system -Panzer Dragoon Orta -- a friend borrowed this (for about 8 freakin' months) soon after I cleared it. A beautiful game, so am replaying it when I have an extra 10 minutes here and there.

The last boss in Shinobi is imposible, good luck beating him...(I almost never quit in those type of games, but I add to with this one before I got Insane )

Well, the last boss in Kunoichi wasn't easy by any stretch either. Took me about 100 tries to get it. Even if you know what you're doing, it takes about 10 minutes or so... imagine doing that 100 times! On the Gamefaq's Kunoichi board, there was a debate which was harder. I think they're both equally challenging -- including the final bosses. We shall see!

Well, I've got my fingers crossed. I played Kunoichi on normal first, w/o ever playing Shinobi, which was a mistake. I should've either played Shinobi, or set the level to easy, as it's a pretty challenging game. I like the whole kicking thing. The only thing that drove me nuts is that the platforming gets pretty tricky around stage 6 or 7, and damn hard on 10 (out of 13 stages).

Right now I'm playing Yoshinoya (PS2) and Pikmin (GC). And the occasional go at The Rumble Fish.

How is Yoshinoya? I've seen a promo movie of it and it looks like the game is right up my alley. Right now I'm mostly playing Metal Slug 3 (PS2) and Virtua Racing (PS2), which I absolutely adore. Just got Wario World too and I'm surprised how much I'm enjoying it.

I beat Princess Crown (Gradriel's scenario). Rather than do the others, I'm moving on for now. Sakura Taisen (DC) Will be purchasing Wario World and Metroid: Zero Mission later this week.

Heh, Gaijin you posted on Gamefaqs boards about Shinobi right? I am NeoX from there as well. If you got any Shinobi questions, I can answer them. I am happy with tieing 6 world records in Shinobi as of now, soon to be 7. I been playing La Pucelle (US version). And Darkchii, I been to Montreal many times. I am just across the border at Plattsburgh NY.

NeoX: Yeah, that's me. Thanks for swinging by! What's your record in Shinobi? Hiruko is just driving me nuts... although I've been trying to beat him with just one makimono (stupid, I know). I can't believe that's only normal difficulty. Kunoichi was very similar, although it took me a LOT longer to the last guy. He took me a good 3-4 hours of tries to get him as well. I think Kunoichi is an overall harder game, mainly due to platforming, but boss wise, Hiruko just sucks. Sakura Taisen: You know, I never knew of a translation project, so can't comment. It's a good idea (good game) but I'm not sure how it'll work if you're reading a long. A lot of the questions in the adventure part effect the characters stats in the strategy part. You have a time limit for those questions as well, so you'd need to know they're coming up before hand. It would definitely be a DC game worth hacking and translating. :)

Here are my scores and times, the ones with a * next to them are maxed out (tieing the world record, max you can possibly do). My times are not the best and need some work to live up to the world record standards. I am going to max 7A next, it's my favorite stage and I have come so close. I can show you a video to help beat Hiroku if you want. Stage - Time - Score 1-A - 1'37''30 - 58,050* 1-B - 1'21''00 - 67,712 2-A - 3'00''57 - 81,110* 2-B - 1'52''97 - 70,720* 3-A - 3'47''09 - 54,260 3-B - 3'12''80 - 58,462 4-A - 3'39''92 - 56,180 4-B - 3'24''60 - 59,283 5-A - 2'23''65 - 47,630 5-B - 45''39 - 59,430* 6-A - 3'37''25 - 48,928 6-B - 33''87 - 59,430* 7-A - 2'46''44 - 61,161 7-B - 1'05''09 - 59,430* 8-A - 3'04''65 - 55,132 8-B - 7'15''12 - 57,073 EX - 5'05''82 - 48,969

There's an online translation for it, probably somewhat like the Shining Force 3 scenarios 2 and 3. I don't how complete it as I never cared for the game or series. From what I've heard your answer won't affect the stretegy parts as there suppose to be kind of a joke difficulty wise. Most likely answer them right will make it even more of a joke I suppose. I think the translation is more for the saturn game. I'm not sure how different the DC vesion is. It will be a few years at least before there a good emulator that can play at a decent speed. not to mention ther aren't too many DC games worth translating that weren't released stateside. I know someone kind of has interest in doing the Saturn one but isn't really movivated and wants a few translator before he'll even consider it. I've already said I more or less could care less for the game.

NeoX: Yes -- video me please! Azazel: You know how these translation projects go. I wouldn't mind working on one again, but there's no way I'd do something like Sakura Taisen on my own. I can fly through reading the Japanese, but it would take ages to translate...there's a lot of text. That's very cool that there's info on it. I like the game to be honest, and I in no way endorse adventure games. It's easy to sit down and do an episode, then crash. I've done 1 per day the last 3 days. They only take about 90 to 120 minutes each.

Sakura Taisen would probably be murder do as each question would have about 3 of 4 answers and multiply that by the number of questions and scenarios. I kind of feel the same way about adventure games. If there's a good short one like Snatcheror Dead of the Brain I might play them if there not longer than 5 hours or so. Your right about the reading part. I could read through something much faster than I ever could translate it. Plus you can always skip some of the towny dialogue as a lot of time it they don't tell you anything meaningful. Most people who haven't translated anything don't really understand it that well.

I just checked the old site that hosted the video and its down. I have it on CD and I put it on my HD for you. You will have to get me on AIM or MSN. Which do you prefer? AIM- Tenchu77491 MSN- Thee_only_hero@hotmail.com Or how much does your email hold? The video is 10.2 megs. PS If all else fails... I can send the video to myself (25 meg inbox) and give you the password so you can get the video that way. I trust you enough for that. Darkchii - Seems strange to meet someone that's been to Plattsburgh. Most people never heard of it =)

I'm sure there's any easier way. My mailbox, which is kinda full, could probably hold it, but I'm not sure. You can try my Yahoo account. It'll fill it up, but someone sent me a 5MB bitmap of themselves onetime, and I was able to view it. Sakura Taisen: The game is toughening up a little bit. I can't say I like the no-leveling up, but I guess they wanted to put some importance on not pissing off the girls in the adventure part. I still stand behind my statement in that it's a fun game.

You might be able to send it like that. My non hotmail, Yahoo accounts can hold about 10MB or so, plus the ISP one can hold about 25 MB. If Sakura Taisen had more action/battles and less adventure parts I would probably consider playing it.

I mailed it to your yahoo. If that does not work I can try raring it and see if it goes under 10 megs. Since it's 10.2 =)

I also heard that there is a english patch for this, but cant find it anywere.

Well there is a translation project for Magna Carte. It doesn't have much translated but most of the hacking is suppose to be done for it. It's sorely lacking translators like most project so I don't think anything will be done on it for a while.
