DCJY Insideout: Last Hope Pink Bullets



The updated re-release of NG:Dev.Team's indie shooter Last Hope arrived in the mail yesterday. It comes in the brightest pink DVD case you'll ever see, and the manual is still mostly in Japanese despite not coming from there.

The game has definitely had improvements: most important of all being that it now has a lot more difficulty settings and has been re-balanced so not so expert gamers like me can actually play it through! In the original It's far more forgiving this time around, and as the title suggest the enemy bullets are now pink so they don't blend in with the explosions and your own bullets like they used to.

If they decide to do the same with a more forgiving version of Dux, can I trade my old one in? I still can't beat the first level in that! XD

Hey, you do know about the Dux bug fix right? Those who bought the game will get a bug fixed version of it for free.

The bug fix has nothing to do with the game difficulty though (it was a score related bug), as that game only has the one difficulty setting and makes you backtrack a chunk of level every time you die, just like in the first Last Hope. Plus the bug doesn't happen to me as I run the game on VGA.

Pussy edition! xD

Still, doesn't look as easy as I thought. Guess I'm gonna have to try it out for myself to see if I can finally play the damn thing.

Does it have the option to play it at the difficulty of the first release?

Well there's levels from "very easy" to "devil" so I presume so.

Sweet. Does this mean I should receive my copy soon? :)

I reckon only if you wrote to them telling them you purchased it, lest they have all your detailes when you bought the original version?

No I pre-ordered on Play-Asia, so I wondered if they started shipping them yet. Which they are in the process of now. :)
