I played through the trial of this game not long after it dropped on XBLA. It seemed like a lot of fun, but a bit automated if that makes sense. I didn't feel all that challenged that much, but then again that was just the starting levels... I should probably get the other DXed classics (like Pac-Man) first though.

Edit: Some of these levels (the second one though show) seem to shake up the formations and such quite a bit. I am intrigued... (but shouldn't spend the money)

Galaga is the best game ever

Posted by JackSukeru

I've never played a Galaga game, but I loved Pac-Man DX and this looks crayzay!

Posted by GeekDown

This looks amazing. I really like the original Galaga and this just looks ten times cooler.

Posted by SockLobster

Thank god Ryan pointed out the blue line thing because I was seriously shouting it at my screen, Brad is terrible.

Posted by Skrams

I sort of liked Galaga Legions because it just seemed neat. You could place half of your legion on the left and half on the right while you fired up. Just liked it. This also looks good but eh not as crazy as Pacman CE DX so I don't care much to buy it.
 
Brad not realizing the laser line things were the formations made me facepalm though. But eh he didn't play regular Legions so whatever.

Not sure why Ryan's so into this one, but hated the first one; they're not that drastically different, other than being to aim freely in this one and the prior utilizing a turret-esque system.

Sold.

Whatever, I'm only going to use the Galaxian graphics.

Posted by Tesla

Ugh...this is not the quick look to watch when you have a hangover.

Posted by schmid

Galaxian is cool, but Type 4 visuals don't look quite right in this game. Still, love it.

Posted by Vexxan

LEGION sold me on this game.

Next: Gyruss!

Come on Gyruss Whatever DX.

SOLD.

Visually I like whats going on here.

Edited by soupbones

Brad - you REALLY have to learn to use the duel shooting formation - you'll take out certain waves before they even get on the screen.

Hear me Brad, hear me.

I enjoyed Pacman DX greatly, might pick this up, ill see. got WAY to many games to play right now lol

Posted by BasketSnake

Someone please go hack SMB1 into Neon 1-1 DX.

Edited by MysteriousBob

I can't believe Brad didn't realise that the lasers tracked the path of the aliens. Took me about five seconds to realise after he said they were 'random'.

Lots of bright lights.

I am now so looking forward to Mappy DX.

Posted by Brendan

Games like these need better contrast between the different visual elements on the screen. My eyes always get lost in the haze of neon particles flying around everywhere.

Posted by PLWolf

This has put me in the mood to go watch the PacMan CE DX QL again. I shall do that promptly.

Sold!

My thoughts exactly. I think feeding off Brad's excitement.

Wow this galaga is not messing around.

Dig Dug DX!

Posted by ShadowKing7

You know, I do love me some Galaga.
Posted by Little_Socrates

@Ronald: Just so you know, they've already announced their next title, and it's Aero-Cross (based on Metro Cross, doesn't seem to be part of an anniversary thing though.)

Next year is the 30th anniversary of Dig Dug and Pole Position, so GET HYPED! Also, year after that is Mappy and LITTLE ELSE.

Posted by rocketboot

There was nothing wrong with Galaga Legions. I played the shit outta that game. I'll probably just go back and play more of that rather than pay 10 bucks for this.

Oh man, that sounds crazy!

Edited by zerdune

I think they are so excited because the game has a DX at the end of the title.

Take it further, we need a Namco Museum DX.  Someone make it happen!

I love the unfiltered joy in this video.

Posted by bybeach

This looks fun! I'll never play it but...

Posted by rethla

I really cant see a single thing in this game that would make it worth playing for even 5min whats all the fuzz about? Yes this is how games where made before with 1Kb memory limitation but lets face it, even by wii standards this is crap.

I was thinking the same thing. A lot of the features they're getting excited about here were in the first Legions.

They mentioned mappy, I remember that game was hard as shit when I was a kid

Posted by haggis

It looked interesting, so I downloaded the trial ... meh. I'm not going to drop ten bucks on this. It's just not challenging enough. Maybe later levels get more difficult, but from what I saw of the trial, I'm not terribly impressed. Back in the day, Galaga was my go-to game in the arcade since I could play forever (it seemed) on a single token compared to other games. Something about this doesn't quite feel like Galaga to me.

Except... it's not at all how they were made back then. Go play the original Galaga (I know it doesn't have Crysis graphics and 64v64 multiplayer, but bear with it) and see the difference for yourself.  
 
The idea is taking classic Namco games and updating them all the way into sensory overload territory. It's the very definition of fan service.  
Posted by WolfmanJenkins

It seems okay, but I feel like the crew gets a bit too easily excited for the DX games.

Posted by CosmicQueso

@Little_Socrates: Isn't the whole GET HYPE meme done now? Why don't you just add a ROFLcopter while you're at it?

Edited by Solh0und

I really liked the trial of this and I liked the enhanced version of Galaga(or was it Galaxian?) on Namco Museum on PS2. 
 
Props for Brad for pointing out the best part of the game.
