Do you play the arcade version? What difficulty do you normally set it to?
Yeah it's mine.
Not yet but it would probably be a lot easier, huh. I've never 1cc'd a game before and I would really like ms3 to be my first.
What the hell /v/, wake up.
It's Metal slug.
But seriously, in games where the characters have unique abilities like XX, is there a definitive person to use?
>Seeing those cloth dissolving death animations for the first time
Yeah. You get a lot more POWs if you take that route.
I used to be able to 1cc it right up to the end, but that fucking final section is impossible.
It's definitely possible.
The shmup section you just have to be good at dodging which should be easy if you managed to not lose a credit at that point. The game even throws a bunch of gasoline and a turret upgrade at you during it.
The first part of the mothership is tricky but doable with the flameshot you get from a POW. Just gotta watch your ammo.
The self-destructing red cyclop spiders can actually be killed off very easily if you just crouch in one spot and melee them until they stop spawning.
Gotta jump to move fast during Rootmars' first phase
etc. Just gotta apply it hard.
yeah that shit's unfair.
>having the vomit used against you
HD handdrawn in the style of the latest KOF.
Alright /v/, throw some ideas out.
Besides the visuals what do you want to see in a new metal slug?
A game featuring the whole gang, each character having their own stats (like in 6). Each character is good with certain weapons (Marco is best with the Heavy Machine Gun, Fio is better with the Flame shot, etc). New Slugs and classic Slugs return. Something unique like a Wolf Slug. Have story be about Morden's son trying to rebuild his army or something.
Morden's son from an alternate timeline. 7/XX had time-traveling space soldiers with funny helmets, so why the fuck not.
Morden's son is kill. It's why he snapped and went full not-Hitler.
Morden was a part of the regular army before his son died due was killed in a bombing caused by an intelligence failure on the part of the Regular Army.
There's so much they could do with Metal slug's story it's not funny.
But I guess it'd be difficult to portray it in a fast-paced arcade game.
I always laugh at the kyo zombies doing vomit orochinagi
Ralf is the person to use in 6 and onwards, his vulcan punch literally rapes every existing boss if you can land it properly
Then again enemy bosses in 6 and onwards are unforgiving as fuck so unless you know the pattern well you're toast
Keep in mind Ralf can take 1 hit before dying and has less grenades/ammo than everyone else
oh yeah also forgot to mention if you can get the Leona dlc for XX then use her, but she's way more broken than Ralf, her crescent moon slash not only does tons of damage and destroys enemy normal bullets and certain projectiles, it can also be canceled to be done again like Zero's slash in megaman X4+ games
Like what kind of special moves?
If they're to be implemented I would really like the level design to completely ignore their existence. One of the many appeals of metal slug is it's simple easy-to-grasp controls.
and they should be simple since the game's fukken tough
Ralf is best if you don't know how to dodge. Mind you that he will still get oneshot by the bloodsuckers in 6-4 and the maneater plants in 7-3.
Clark is better if you want to show off. He gets an invincibility window everytime you do the Argentinian backbreaker.
>that feel when a chinese company owns the love of your life
>and at least MI2 looks better than XV
I mean visuals are kinda subjective and all but the PSX build already looked better than MI2 in my opinion except for Andy who was clearly the most unfinished character in the build. It's also getting better all the time, you can talk to the art dudes for the game on Facebook and they're pretty open about how development is going, and the next trailer is going to look a lot better than it does right now but the current build looks better than the next trailer. The visuals are going to get a lot better before it releases.
>It's what it seems like
SNK Playmore General Manager Yutaka Noguchi mentions during an interview telling people to not worry about KoFXIV being PS4 exclusive because they are working on other titles as well such as "Samurai" (SamSho) and Metal Slug. I don't know if this is a direct confirmation of those projects being underway or if those are just examples, but it was mentioned by name.
It's probably the best thing to happen to the company in like a decade. A lot of people like to jump to conclusions about what a Chinese buyout means, but no country on earth loves or respects SNK more than the Chinese do. KoF is practically the national sport. On top of that the new majority owner company is pumping a lot of fucking money into the IPs. KoF is getting an anime and a live action series. SNK actually has motivation to make actual video games again and now they have the funding and the freedom to actually do it, AND they have fucking quit the pachinko business. This is literally only a good thing to everyone who is paying attention.
Anon, it was either be bought by their current Chinese owners and get some budget outside of Pachinko, or be stuck and die in Pachinko hell considering that there are news saying that even Pachinko ain't making that much money.
After playing 1-4 (and I thought 4 was kinda meh coming from that extremely long-ass finale from MS3) I kinda thought that 5 wasn't too good.
It would go something like this probably.
Also, Marco is hilarious as fuck in NG Battle Coliseum. His inputs are kinda hard but the ensuing projectile spam is fun stuff.
6 is garbage. It has really lazy shitty backgrounds, it's ugly, the AI is really poor, it's not even fun to score attack because it's just Clark command throws all day. Shit game. XX is just 7 with more stuff.
whaddya guys think of this cuhraaaazy new promo art for metal slug attack?
>this was almost a thing
Not like I care, it was probably going to be shovelware.
Oh, a Metal Slug thread? Nice.
What is your favorite Metal Slug game?
This might sound shallow, but I personally like Metal Slug XX the best because it has my favorite girl Leona playable in it.
>tfw owning metal slug anthology on PS2
are there any noteworthy metal slug games that aren't on this collection?
