      Old Eri has a serious business scowl while new Eri has a bawd grin. It's not at all the same look

      I hate that they turned FIo into a generic E-thot in that chinese gacha

      Seriously, it's a horrible look. She doesn't even look like she would go into battle, it looks like she would just suck the enemy's dicks and give them intel

      Despite the comically unflattering depictions of the characters on the character select screen, the characters were never designed to be unattractive in reality. Old Fio didn't look any more like she'd be going into battle than new Fio.

          It's been said that some of the Nazca team left or worked on other projects after MS1, since SNK acquired Nazca after that game due to how impressed they were. Some Nazca staff worked on 2/X/3 before the first bankruptcy but with how many used codenames I don't recall there being an exact understanding of how many left and when during that timespan.

        actually shes alright too. it follows that the black hound, being essentially a prototype autonomous slug, would also have developed its own consciousness considering that it broke out of Ptolemaic control on its own. So if it can happen to Alice, it definitely can happen to black hound. Actually the ptolomaic sniper girl is also a good addition to the cast and gives their army its own allen counterpart who feels unique.

        A lot of other characters in that gacha are just shit and clog up the cast. All the aliens, all the extra regular army members, all the extra named rebel army members, etc.

      They tried 3D on ps2. Hardcore fans hated it, though it actually plays fairly faithfully as a move to the 3rd dimension.

      Never got the hate for MS4

      It comes off like a ROMhack due to being made by a separate team in Korea that were fans of the series but not as experienced as the original trilogy staff. Two OCs replacing Tarma & Eri, villain is a background character from the last two games being revealed to be a Dr. Wily-esque mad scientist, a level of sprite reuse that was way more noticeable than other entries, bosses that used respawning ads to cover for limited patterns, new sprites are mostly static compared to the animation quality in the trilogy, occasional moments of awkward level design that show a lack of experience, adding an escape sequence after the final boss.

      MS4 isn't a bad game, I wouldn't call any mainline MS worse than a 7/10, but you can definitely feel that it was a game made when SNK was still in limbo from their first bankruptcy with an outside studio doing most of the work.

          It is, but it doesn't have the same "sound" as the trilogy. It adds to the feeling that it's a fan project given the official OK. Granted later MS games also had different vibes to their OSTs, it's just one of many little things when it comes to 4.

    The problem with MS Awakening is that it's a mobile game. If you ported this to PC with proper aim controls, removed the online/level/stat crap and just have the world adventure missions with correct difficulty scaling then it would be a good MS game with improved graphics.

    Sadly it's a mobile gacha game that has a good MS game hidden in it. When you look at the world missions you can see there's a good game waiting for someone to give it proper controls. Sadly manual aim for now is janky as balls even on android emulators.

      this is the problem with a lot of mobile games out there. there are some gacha games that I would love to play through the story missions straight up once and have a satisfying conclusion with. Gacha system can be used to shake things up for repeat playthroughs since the most fun you have with that stuff is when you dont have anyone and you are just seeing who you get. Instead we get long drawn out games that make you grind the same content over and over again to level up for future content that rewards you with a bit more story (that never gos anywhere because we have to drag things out till EOS) and another bawd to bloat the roster even further.

    This might be a moronic question but is there anyway to play metal slug with a built in live system or some shit? I beat the first 3 and really liked them and I know its part of the games but I can't help but feel like being able to put in credits whenever I want and just never die makes so I can't appreciate the game as much

      The versions I've played had that in options. I think even some of the achievements were tied to finishing the game with one credit and such.

    Why don't we get games like this anymore?

      It was a 90s thing. It's like asking why we don't have sculptures like in the Baroque era anymore.

      It was a 90s thing. It's like asking why we don't have sculptures like in the Baroque era anymore.

      The answer to both is that it is no longer what makes money. Beautiful sprite work was desired in the 90s because it was some of the most impressive graphics possible at the time, and even then the latter half of the decade had people saying that basic low-poly 3D like Virtua Fighter 1 or the average N64 game was better-looking than the apex of sprite-based games simply because it was a newer and more impressive technique, same as how people like a ton of detail and realism in graphics now over what can be done with stylization in 3D. Classical statues with insane detail mostly existed because rich people commissioned artists to make them, they were seen as a symbol of their wealth and status. An artist today can't just sculpt an insane work like that that takes months if not years without a benefactor, and the average major game dev can't justify making insanely fluid sprite animations that are costly because they don't instantly lead to attention and sales (see: KOF XII & XIII being a hail mary that failed and lead to SNK's second bankruptcy).

      You could sat hobbyists and indie devs exist but the most impressive art is basically ALWAYS backed by cash. The few exceptions end up being people who spend like 10 years of their free time on something and don't even break even on it monetarily.

        the real reason is you can't make sprites like that for a 1920x1080 (or bigger) screen without an AAA budget

      >Why are there Nazis
      Corruption at the worldwide scale, they started rebelling in 2023 but they didn't do anything of notoriety until Morden flipped to their side after his son died 8n an attack that the regular forces allowed to happen because corruption.

      >Why was Satan the final boss that one time
      Because SNK playmore was creatively bankrupt.

      >What year is it set
      mid-late 2020s through mid-2030s, and then maybe into the 2040s during a couple games.
      >Why are there Nazis
      The Rebels are unironically the good guys fighting a corrupt world government. They are so resilient because General Morden, the government's top general, defected after the government didn't bother stopping a bombing that killed his son despite knowing well in advance it would happen. Many Rebels are also defected World Government troops more loyal to Morden than anybody else, and this includes Allen (who canonically returns from the dead over and over because he loves his family too much to leave them).

      Marco & Tarma are members of the military unit Peregrine Falcons, a tech guy and an engineer, and are tasked with taking down Morden's troops under threat & blackmail from the government. Fio & Eri are agents of the government ordered to shoot Marco & Tarma dead if they even think about defecting to Morden's side, though they warm up to the guys as people later on.

          Is this real? I never bothered learning the background for MS because I thought it was just some silly shooting game.

          It's real. Morden isn't a "did nothing wrong" type since he only defected because his son died and he's caused collateral damage, on top of thinking the Mars People could be trusted, but he's right to oppose the government. MS1's ending really drives home the point that war is hell and the human cost of it is its greatest tragedy, even when there's a good and bad side. I'm not against the wacky sci-fi of the later entries but 1 and arguably 2 (not X) maintain this sort of tone better than the rest.

          Also Morden is Canadian.

        Anybody play Aqua Slug? I actually played this before any of the mainline games just because of the prevalence of flash games at the time.

      Play the entire mainline series in order.
      1, 2 and/or X, 3, 4, 5, 6, XX
      X is a rework of 2 with better performance and remixed levels but some prefer 2's levels. XX is a rework of 7 but it's objectively better so just play XX.

      Beyond that there's 1st Mission, 2nd Mission, and Advance. They're handheld entries that vary in format from the arcade games but are worth playing. The PS2 TPS is weird and not great but you can play it if you want. Don't play any of the mobile games.
