I just saw this official blog post for Fast Striker. I'm still not a bullet hell fan but it's good to see games getting to more platforms.

"Hello everyone, I’m René from NGDEV, a small video game development team based in Germany. We’ve been making 2D arcade games for more than 10 years. Perhaps some of you know us from our games such as Gunlord or the upcoming Kraut Buster.

Today we’re very excited to announce our partnership with eastasiasoft to bring our retina-scorching vertical 2D arcade shoot ’em up Fast Striker to PS4 and PS Vita. Fast Striker will launch at PlayStation Store on October 16 for $6.99 and supports Cross-Buy. A physical limited edition will also be available at playasia.com..."

The physical PS4 version will probably show up before the AES reprint I’m waiting on.... :lolz:

Smart move by them.

Cue all the NGDev haters that inexplicably spend time reading and commenting in NGDev threads.

Hi Lonesage!

Well, the original idea of these games was to code new games for the classic hardware, but I don't blame them for wanting to reach a larger audience. They already did it with the Dreamcast. I'm surprised they waited so long. They worked hard on these games; it would basically be leaving money lying around.

No switch version??? :(

Well they did announce the updated Gunlord for Switch, maybe they will release a bunch of their games on the Switch at once? The good news is people who bought a Vita will finally have something to play on it.

Dope, bring the others out as well. I would love to be able to play all of their games.

$6.99 is a great price, I'll be buying on the 16th. Hopefully it'll sell enough to motivate them into porting all their other games.

I owned this game at one point on the Aes and MVS and didn't enjoy it. I much rather play something dated like ChoRenSha 68K than this. Only NGdev games I actually liked was NEO XYX and GunLord. Razion is pretty and the Music is good but that's about it.

I'll try it on PS4 at $6.99. Looked interesting when it first came out.

Hopefully it'll sell enough to motivate them into finishing their other games first.

But then again... no.

This is my favorite ngdevteam game, so it will be nice to also play this on Vita... the price is right. Based on the trailer, it looks like they are approaching the port with some attention to details like scanline options - so hopefully that means this will include all of the Neo version's animation frames that were missing in the Dreamcast port.

Lisa, your father needs your help. Do you know anything about Germany?

- Well, it's a country in Europe.

Good.

- An economic power of the world.

Because we send them money?

-No. They're efficient and punctual, with a strong work ethic.


Well, in case of the Hellwigs, Homer nailed it ;).

I hope so too - I think they are safe to ditch that ploy at making the Neo version the "best" version by now

ChoRenSha would have been a MUCH better choice than some NGdev garbage.

You and Lonesage should Facetime and jerk off to how much you dislike NGDev games and talk about them for hours.

You do realize that the DC is disc-based, and as such has memory limitations that the Neo doesn't have to cope with.

This. Announcing Gunlord for Switch and Fast Striker for PS4/Vita seems pretty random.

Pssh, there's plenty of content on Vita. Mostly indies but it's all great. Probably have like 50 physical titles at least. And yeah I plan to get the cart copy of this one too.

You've now made more posts whining about me implying I give a shit about NGDEV when I only made a flippant comment about how it stole the "soldier relaxing in underwear" from Slug, chief.

It's ok to just admit you're pissed that Kraut Buster still isn't out while they keep pulling this garbage though.

Why would I be pissed? It's a video game. Already said in the KB thread I don't care when it comes out.

Snabbed it for vita as soon as it went up. I hope this port is mvs perfect and not like the dreamcast port where it cuts all sorts of animations.

The PSvita and PS4 version is a port of DC version.

So just like the iOS port was then. That's too bad, I was hoping to finally have a port with all of the original animations intact. I guess the definitive Fast Striker will forever remain the Neo version.

Fuck. Well, I guess that makes sense as the easiest port for hem to accomplish. I’ve not played the DC version, but I’ve not heard great things about it. Oh well, guess I’ll find out for myself soon. :)

On the contrary, I saw ngdevteam say on Twitter this week that Gunlord for Switch will be "vastly improved" over the original Neo version.

Fast striker on ps4: 4/10
It's commendable that this was made by only a couple of people but that doesn't automatically make it great. It's pretty easy, levels are samey and it somehow all feels a bit sluggish. I like the boss designs and the music but bosses go down far too quickly. There's plenty of far better STG's.

I'd say its a 5/10 6/10. I enjoy it but, its pretty damn average. Your criticism is pretty accurate about the bosses though. Why have awesome boss music that I hear for all of 15 seconds.

I understand why they do it, but I wish you could buy the roms for the the neo geo version for all the NG Dev titles. Would love to buy the physicals but that price is hard for me to justify.
