  • [insert Orochi blood saga reference here for attack]

  • Fio all the way for me~

  • Why do all the screenshots look so terrible? looks like it was probably a 4:3 game originally, then stretched for a PSP screen…

    • It’s one of the filter options.

    • jj984jj

      Because it is a 4:3 game being stretched for the PSP screen? You can play it with borders as well if you want to.

      • yeah i just read that it’s a DS port of metal slug 7.

        seems pretty sloppy to me, they could have just widened the view ratio like most FPS games, instead of just stretch the original frame…
