Anyone else excited for this game?

I have been waiting for this game for a while now... praying each new week its coming out wednesday

I was a big fan of the original 1942. Probably made me a fan of shmup games.

I'm stoked for the release of this game. I still have the original NES title, but I never could beat it. I remember getting to "Last 7 of 32" but that was about it. It just felt that in the higher levels pixels would drop from the game as the screen got more and more crowded, and I'd inevitably get hit by freaking invisible bullets.

I'm really surprised we haven't heard more about this game's release.

1942 isnt 1942 joint strike.

1942 was a classic. hopefully this can be pretty good. if its half as good as 1942, ill buy it, but not for 800 points.

so yes, im kinda excited about it, also apprehensive.

Workbench, man I hope you are wrong I think it has the classic and a new updated graphics version. I am really excited about it coming out also. I dropped a lot of quarters into that game back in the day. I never beat it if I remember correctly but I sure did enjoy playing it......

I don't think any one of us imagined that 1942: Joint Strike would be the same as the original. The developers even admitted that JS takes its inspiration from the entire 194X series, but tries to stay true to the spirit of the game. I'm betting that they've included some "ultra-moves" more akin to Raiden Fighters, just because that seems to be the path that vertical scrolling shooters are taking. It might be less believable, but heck, the first game had ONE plane fighting off thousands of Japanese planes. It should still be fun, if its 400 or 800MSP.
