Death and Return of Superman is a video game featuring a guy dressed up like Superman, except that he's slower than a speeding bullet, less powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap knee high in a single bound. :lol: That's not really the Superman experience I was seeking.

Hard, but not impossible. I cannot think of a single video game that got Superman really right, but that doesn't mean it can't be done. Imagine Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction but with the ability to fly and X-Ray vision. There should be some kind of good vs evil mechanic (think KOTOR) that rewards the player for doing good deeds rather than using super powers for evil.

Doesn't superman fly in the first game on the Sega Genesis. I've always somehow liked that game. I remember renting the game at Blockbuster almost once a month

yeah, games like Hulk: Ultimate Destruction proved to me you can totally nail certain characters in games, it just takes some work. Punisher, Spidey, Batman, several greats have had that - superman's flight in Returns was good, at least. they just need a game built around that.

..god i'd kill for a good Daredevil game.

Look at Asura's Wrath. Games on that scale can totally be done. And that game is nuts.

Does anyone have any notion of what a fair price for a Thunder Force III cart is these days?

I don't care about the box/manual. I've looked the game up on ebay but... ebay can be weirdly high sometimes.

Fixed that for you.
I'm out of touch with prices these days though. Everything is overpriced when you started collecting, you did so because everything was a bargain.

I think my copy of TFIII was like $5 back in the day. One of the only shmups that I have played all the way through.

Man, I wish I could find one for $5!

I did find Hyperzone Heist for $5 at a flea market a couple of years ago though.

Just bagged myself a complete copy of Thunder Force IV* :D

*Known as Lightening Force Quest for Darkstar (like wtf is that?) for you guys in North America.

This game is badass!

Yeah, awesome game! Bloody difficult though (or maybe that's just me being a noob who doesn't play many shmups :P).
