Did you ever get to play one by some odd chance?
« on: September 09, 2008, 07:14:27 AM »
I never have, but I'm wondering if any of you here have ever gotten to play a Galaxian Theater game.
I love Time Gal!

No, but I would love to give it a try some time.

Wait until the end of the Nuno's Lair v, a room that will be fully dedicated to Galaxian  ;)

I strongly suggest you to give a try at the Playstation port of the game. A very good adaptation and as a bonus, you can play a new mission 'Rise Of Gourb'  :)

Say what? The Galaxian theater games got ported to the PSOne? How'd they do that?

Oh my god... I can see a crowd of people waiting infront of your Lair v just to play your Galaxian in the near future...

Is it possible that the playstation game was released only in japan? I can't seem to find one on the Belgian trading sites, only on ebay but they are japanese versions...

There is also a English version of the PS game but I think it's very rare.

Okay, I'll buy the japanese version then. They seem to be pretty cheap.

There is a PAL (europe) version of the game.



But don't buy the PAL version! The video on it is not smooth at all  :evil:. They didn't convert well the original video footage from NTSC (30 frames per sec) to PAL (25 frames per sec) ... you can see the difference between the PAL and NTSC ... the PAL version is jerky  :ghost:

There is always a NTSC Japanese version on ebay.com for sale. Get this one  ;)

By the way, there should be a NTSC US version too, but I didn't find it yet.

Thank you for the warning about the bad PAL version, now I'm certain about buying the Japanese version.

It's sad to see that Europe gets a lot of bad PAL conversions, I have a PAL Sega Ages Outrun on the Saturn and it doesn't play smooth either... I bought the Japanese version then and played it on my Japanese Saturn and it plays at full 30fps just like the real deal.

Thank you for the link.
I listened to the GOURB's English version for the first time.

My 1st play?
It was GH-28 at Namco Wonder Egg.

A general model that was within the country played in me.  ( GM-16,GT-6(Dragoon&Zol),PS )

It is thought that the experience and happiness that the large number of people plays the same game are not easily the one that can be done.

I have never played Galaxian 3 before but I'm sure the United States has no Galaxian 3 arcade anywhere. And plus if there was one on ebay I won't be able to get it.
