" @WatanabeKazuma: Not really, since I'm a King, and you're just a guy with a (presumably) Japanese username. "King of what?! Oh okay...
And I'm just some jerk.
I don't get the love for Slug 3, in part because of how screwed you are if you don't come to the second boss zombiefied and ready to puke, but Slug X is up there, man. Of course, I had the pleasure of being pleasured by it on a sitdown NeoGeo cabinet and the real arcade hardware, making it a massively different experience, while you got the PS1 port :/
I like Slug 5 more than Slug 3.
" @WatanabeKazuma: Yes, that is shameful, maybe. I'd try it out for myself, but there are several problems preventing me from doing so, like my inability to emulate the Dreamcast, my lack of ownership of a Dreamcast, and the fact that I don't really buy anything on Xbox Live Arcade. "Ergo I'm still superior! It's the little victories.
As for bullet hell, lets just say I quickly went off the idea when I couldn't even finish the demo of Ikaruga...shameful.
" @XII_Sniper said:Well anything after three basically removes most of the supernatural stuff, it's almost as if they regretted it. Which is too bad. I didn't really get passionate about the metal slug games past 3." You can tell "I can? I haven't played anything past the third one, which is technically the fourth one. "

" @XII_Sniper: If you like the acid motif, then why not Metal Slug 3 as much? After all, that game was pretty awesome, even if I don't think I could reblog about it. "I think it's cause they took it one step too far. That game was just acid trip shooter every step of the way. You can tell cause they toned it way down in subsequent MS games. And 3 was really cool (the first Metal Slug I played in arcades), I guess I just liked the scenarios of 2/X better. Also the last level of 3 is madness, because it's essentially two-three times longer than any other stage, and trying to do it with a limited number of credits (like if you were playing the Xbox version, or just had a limited amount of money for the machine) is a pain in the ass.
Fuck yeah! Metal Slug X was my favorite in the series, which puts it in high running for my favorite side-scrolling shooter period. It took Metal Slug 2, a remarkably messed up game to begin with (though one I've played all too many times), and then they just tweaked the hell out of everything and make it crazier. Metal Slug X had the perfect mix of MS1's just shooting solders and MS3's constant bat-shit crazy supernatural opponents. You still felt like you were in a war, but one that was interrupted by Jeff Bridges giving everyone acid halfway through.
" @luce said:I'll take your side in this argument, Bob, but Contra 4 is pretty damn cool too." Fuck Metal slug. Contra 4 for lyfe "Got that in reverse, pal. "
Think I found my favorite Let's player

I'm scared with the countdown coming to its end. Is the Moon going to explode or something? Is the Earth going to be invaded? Oh god, hold me.
