Gun Hazard is great though I always preferred Cybernator/Assault Suits Valken and Metal Warriors to it. I get why some people prefer the RPG elements and story driven nature of Gun Hazard though. It's a great game regardless, I dare say one of the best Super Famicom games that never made it to the US.

I might jump back into Battletech again now that all of the DLC expansions are out.

Haha, this game is one of the biggest disappointments of my life. I'm a big fan of One Must Fall 2097 so when I first discovered Rise of Robots on a shareware CD I was really pumped. The graphics looked so amazing for A DOS game. Unfortunately that first impression wore off really fast.

Cybernator/Assault Suit Valken rules so hard. One of the best SNES games, IMO, and radically better than Target Earth/Assault Suit Leynos, which I started last night. Also, good call on Cyberbots, DSH. I have that in my PS3, and I should spend some time with it.

Finally, and just for the record, I am currently playing Transformers: Devastation with my children. (My son got WAAAAAAY into Transformers last month.) So, there’s a lot of robot fighting robot action going on in my house right now.

Have you played the Assault Suit Leynos remake? It's worth looking at if you get frustrated with Target Earth.

Graphics are nice but the weird lock-on/dashing was a huge letdown and completely put me off the game for good.


Agreed. That one just doesn't click with me at all.

God tier game and one of the best on the Super Famicom. Its predecessor is also quite good, albeit completely different, though of course you can play them out of order.

I've got a few things going on, but may hit up Joy Mech Fight on Fami before the month is up. Too bad I already played Muv-Luv Alternative. 8)

I am curious about that, but unfortunately, I don’t have a system that can play it... :? I do have a Genesis, though!

It is very good...and still stands as one of the best examples of making a remake that allows you to switch between new/original graphics.

I can get that you might not like PC games...but how do you not have a PS4 yet? :shock:

Managed to get what i believe to be the bad ending of Virtual On and that's as far as i'll ever go with this game

On the other hand, i'm in love with Cybernator Ack! Amazing game and a technical feat for the SNES, thank you!

I’m a retro gamer! :lol: I don’t buy new systems; I just find new ways to play old games.

What's a PS4? A l33t public service announcement?
