    Oh, the intro music.

    I have this on 360. I must say that the 3D graphics are pretty annoying, I always played in retro mode, not that I played much. Then again, I’m not a fan of hori shooters, so I’m probably a little biased here.

    Oh, neat. So who owns Irem’s catalogue nowadays, I wonder? Did somebody buy Irem’s games division or something?

    Sweet, I was hoping this would make it over. Hopefully Caladrius gets localized as well.
