    Her saga and orta soundtracks are two of the best soundtracks ever composed. Absolute masterworks.

    Hope there's plans for a saga remake. More people need to play that incredible game.

    Damn, for a second there when I saw Dragoon, I was hoping for a legend of Dragoon remake in 8k and the announcement of Legend of dragoon 2 in 14k but its just panzer Dragoon, meh .....:rolleyes:

    Steam is blocked on my work VPN - I hear it's out now, is that right?

    It's out only in the US and I think only on switch.

    Staggered international release dates in a digital world are the dumbest **** ever.

    Yeah that's a bit annoying, especially since digital releases RIGHT NOW is the correct choice.

    Panzer Dragoon is on the Irish eshop for €24.99


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,379 ✭✭✭xckjoo


    Very tempted. I like these kind of games but only ever played a small bit of Orta at a friends house. Might wait for a review to come out first though.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 51,110 CMod ✭✭✭✭Retr0gamer


    Glad this is a full remake than remaster. The original is only an ok rail shooter. Zwei and Orta on the other hand are probabyl the two best rail shooters ever made. Looking forward to zwei and hope that this remaster of the first game brings it up to a level with zwei.

    Seems they haven't strayed much from the original which is unfortunate as I've said it needs a bit of modernisation.

    At least zwei is so good it doesn't need much gameplay updates so if you are curious I'd wait for the sequel.

    Inconceivable

    Retro is gonna trigggeerrrr


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 51,110 CMod ✭✭✭✭Retr0gamer


    Not really. Seems people misremembering the original game which wasn't that great. It was a tech demo for the Saturn at launch with an interesting setting that got expanded on in the sequels. It was fun but no masterpiece.

    Zwei on the other hand is a masterpiece and really hoping they do that game Justice and really hope it leads to a saga release.

    I agree, the only dragoon game worth playing is this

    It’s no Lylat Wars that’s for sure.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 51,110 CMod ✭✭✭✭Retr0gamer


    It’s no Lylat Wars that’s for sure.

    Definitely not. But zwei and Orta are arguably better than starfox 64.

    Panzer Dragoon Saga would have been good

    Arguably I said. I think starfox 64, zwei and Orta are the Pinnacle of rail shooters. I wouldn't be able to say which is better but I can say theres no other better rail shooters other than maybe the two sin and punishment games.

    Panzer Dragoon Saga would have been good

    It would but with the source code lost and the saturn still difficult to emulate correctly we may never see it.
    Really the source code is needed to make a good modern port.

  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 51,110 CMod ✭✭✭✭Retr0gamer


    Really looking forward to this. The first Remake was a great remake but the base game just isn't great.

    Zwei on the other hand is incredible.
