EG review here

Otomedius Gorgeous! is essentially a game about penguins and cleavage. It doesn't show us any penguins endowed with boobs of their own, because that would be hideous, but still, I reckon these two elements probably constituted 60 per cent of Otomedius G's design document. The remaining 40 per cent is a Gradius-inspired love-in at the shmup ranch.

Hello everyone. I'm new to this place. I've heard there's some mythical thing called "a front page" - any of you know what it is?

Heh, if there's bewbs and manga, and parodius / gradius in the offing, you know I'll be all over it like a stinkbug on something stinky.

BTW dunno if the EG review has footage but the front page news story does, and it's worth watching just for the hilarity (and the boobage)

If this ever, EVER gets released here I'll be having it. Surprised EG reviewed it actually as I thought they had a strict "no imports" policy.

Admittedly I scanned it quick, and I realise this is yet another case of "hello, kettle? You're black", but that EG review was very unclear to me. Is it a three player game primarily? Is there a single player element? Are there any death lasers?

Also, when is it likely to come out over here?

It's the sort of thing that'd be perfect for XBLA.

/Slaps people in charge of XBLA release policies

Might try to get it on cheapo import, if such a thing is possible after the shitting itself.

Well EG reviewed it, so unless they know something I don't there is a slim chance rather than no chance.

But retroid's right, given some of the atrocious crap on XBLA this would be a breath of fresh air.

Reminds me - where the hell is that R-Type reboot?

And what the fuck happened to the raiden fighters thing? Or did that sneak out without me realising.

It got a mention in this month's Edge; looks like R-Type I and II with a slightly tricksy (and thankfully, optional) camera angle...

I think that alt-camera angle would make it a bit easier...which might suit me actually :)

Looks nice though. See, THAT'S how to update a classic with some nice graphics. Not use the "Turn-everything-to-flash-shit-o-meter" that most XBLA titles have.

I might as well repost my front page comment in here:

This is a great game in the arcade (to watch as well as play) thanks to the touchscreen and the interesting things it does, not so sure how great the home conversion will be if you don't pick up the special stick that incorporates the touch screen to some extent.

I'll add that I'm not saying it will suffer to the extent of not being worth buying, since the touchscreen functionality will be easily transferable to the pad, but the touchscreen really is the game's USP.

Play-Asia says this isn't multiregion, don't know if there will be any chance of a US release being multi.
