Yeah, Max is a beast. Definitely one of the more fun big guys to use in a brawler.

I've never made a genuine go at getting a 1cc on SoR2, but I've come the closest with Max (the elevator to Mr. X). Though apparently doing it with Axel isn't that tough if you don't mind spamming the GRAND UPPER (it is too late for me to change to "ground," it will always be "grand" for me) through the entire game.

I don’t think I’ll go for a 1CC, just looking to reach the end on default settings (so 2 continues). I had what seemed like a good run with Skate yesterday, getting to stage six without continuing. My first time past R Bear without a continue. Might have been better off using one there though, because the post stage bonus points would have gotten me two extra lives. Instead I used the first continue early in stage six, the second against the stage six boss (without having reached enough points for any extra lives), and got game over on the elevator in seven.

I like how some of the palette swap enemies are themed - the bikers are all weather related, and the kickboxers are birds (my favourite is Pheasant). Number one for me are the knife throwing guys, who have bean themed names: Jack, Beano, and Soya.

I just beat Streets of Rage II. I used Axel and lots of Grand Upper. Wound up finishing on the first credit with about five lives left.

On one hand, Night Slashers is a top tier beat em up and arguably Data East's greatest game, so this is great news; on the other, Forever Entertainment's track record is spotty, and I don't think they're going to go a 2D route for this...

We'll see!
 
I would have been quite happy if we had gotten a proper emulation of the original game, rather than what Johnny Turbo gave us. Turn off that bilinear filtering, damn it! Ugly and blurry is no way to go through life!

Oh, noooooooooo. What else have they done?

They did the lackluster Panzer Dragoon remake, along with the mediocre Fear Effect Sedna and a lot of various smaller titles. They're doing the upcoming House of the Dead remakes as well. They're swinging high but I don't know if they can actually catch the edge they're so desperate to reach.

True. I just know that whenever I see talk on Panzer Dragoon it's typically tinged in disappointment, patched or not. And I wasn't too enthusiastic, either lol
