>>2914526 I doubt it since SNK is basically defunct.
I mean, Metal Slug basically got the EA or Ubisoft treatment with sequels shit out left and right.
>Metal Slug 1-6 on Arcade >Metal Slug on Neo Geo Pocket >Metal Slug Advance on Gameboy Advance
Pretty much all of them post X were bad. 2 is basically unplayable with 2 players because of slow down. X fixed a lot of the problems, and made it genuinely a better game, but it still has a lot of slowdown, which people seem to gloss over.
So the only really, fun, and enjoyable ones are 1, X and 3. 4 was just recycled everything. 5 introduced some dumb shit like new characters and while it's better then 4, all of them are better then 4. 6 feels kind of like fanfiction.
So just play the best ones. 1, 3 and X. The GBA one is alright, but it's not really a true metal slug since it's got health bars and stuff to be more of a handheld game then an arcade game.
4-5 aren't very good. I haven't tried 6 nor 7. I kind of wish the series would be revive if the right people are developing the game.
>>2914541 >SNK is defunct Pretty sure they're doing great since they finally left the Pacinko business and returned to game development. Samurai Shodown is apparently being revived by SNKP. So they're might be hope for a true MS revival.
>>2916504 >I can now beat the third stage without needing a continue. Yeah I've just about got that down, it gets quite a bit harder from there. Well 4 should be doable pretty quickly but I can see 5 and 6 taking a lot of practice
>>2916686 >Alien Soldier isn't really a run and gun though. How come?
>It's certainly not like contra Contra Hard Corps and Shattered Soldier (PS2) had a heavy emphasis on boss battles and short segments where you run 'n gun or have to defeat some enemies, and everyone agrees that Contra is a run 'n gun.
>>2916740 That's 3. >>2916504 I played through the steam version a while ago but it seemed off. I would get weird slowdowns and the online is much worse. How well does 3 emulate on MAME? I'd eventually like to throw together a MAME cabinet and that'd be one of my first games on it along with X
