New arrival: R Type Leo
I bought this on a bit of a whim really I guess. I'm really interested to play it and since it was never ported this is my only chance. The price was right so I decided to pick it up and give it a whirl. I'm not a massive fan of the series although I do enjoy the original, this apparently plays pretty differently both in terms of the way the little slave ships work and other gameplay elements. I'll be interested to see if it suits me better than R Type 2. I borrowed that on PCB for a while and though I enjoyed it I found it didn't have massive replayability for me. I liked reaching further through practice but found redoing the first level mega tedious after a while. That's not something I ever get with ibara or whatever, I find it endlessly replayable. Once the MVS > JAMMA adapter arrives I'll be able to play it and see what I reckon. If I don't get on with it I imagine I could probably trade it for one of the games left on my want list.
