This looks like it's on a Dreamcast. I approve.
 
However, I don't approve of not being first when the video wasn't even on the front page.

Amazing game but I'm a little gutted that when you hit the ground you don't crash for like 500 virtual miles. Still, amazing game.

I'm going to check out this video as well, but I'm not happy with the "Secret" quest.
 
I never like "Challenges" that mostly require luck and truckloads of free time to accomplish.
 
While pretty much all challenges in and around games or anything require some form of luck and free time, the great ones mostly require skill than the former qualities mentioned.
 
If I were to be rewarded for getting headshots, that I pulled off, legally, through skill or perseverance, I would feel proud. It takes luck and time to headshot, but mostly skill. If I were to be rewarded for basically being some sort of lottery winner, it would take nearly zero skill, but 99% luck and time.
 
No disrespect to anybody here, and to whoever can get the Secret Quest. I'm sure you worked for it and you deserve it. (I'm gonna stop now because I'm definitely going to derail this video.)
 
edit: Changed words to not spoil the means to get the Secret Quest.
 
edit2: Wow this game looks awesome!

The secret quest is a "first" quest? 
 
Didn't expect Jeff would pull something like this considering what they've said about the quest system in the last podcasts.

Awesome looking. I remember the old arcade version. I was terrible at it but kept feeding it quarters. Certainly will consider picking this up.

C'mon Jeff, Bayonetta and Napoleon: Total War were great games that had the Sega name attached to them, and those were a few months ago.

FUCK YEAR
I LOEV AFTER BURNER
also, for all of you looking for a little variety, there's a really clunky demo called master burner climax made by some japanese dude based on touhou (which in itself is a shmup if you didn't know already). I think only two or three of you would enjoy it (or even figure out how to play it) though.

This is what HD GAMING is all about: smooth framerate, fast paced airplane crazy missle action! Even if it's a bit short game, it looks like it will be easy to get back to again and again and again--

Man, I loved playing this game in arcades. 
I think my local movie theater still has a machine.  You got a stick and a moving cabinet and everything.
