his is it, guys! After patiently waiting three interminable months, THE cabinet is finally arrived right away from Japan by container, to the seller's place in the Netherlands. The time has come for me to bring back that Japanese lady from Netherlands into my game room in Belgium. Oh, should I really have to name it? I'm sure you all know what game I'm talking about... DARIUSBURST EX / AN OTHER CHRONICLE
Back in 2011, I had a crush on that cabinet/game after seeing many videos of the game play, reading so many positive reviews ... and technically, what a piece of hardware : double 16/9 screen 'a la Galaxian Theater', massive bass speaker inside the seat, 4 players... and a cabinet shape that kills everything around! At last, something 'modern' and really exciting is catching my interest! ...oh, and of course... its name : DARIUS !!! What a license! Taito, by this game, truly made a beautiful tribute to the Darius franchise by creating this new iteration of the game : deep game play, various modes, scoring & competitive playing, biggest 'end of level boss sprites' ever seen in a video game, hypnotic soundtrack (by Zuntata) & awesome sound effects, this modern shoot'em up has everything I love!
I eventually had the opportunity to try it for the very first time during the Eurocade in September 2014, and as expected, it was love at first
game! I also had to opportunity to buy that one during Eurocade, but it wasn't the right time for me.
And later, I got the opportunity to buy an other one, following an offer I couldn't resist. Deal done.
We are in September 2014... and all I've to do is to wait that beast to be imported from Japan by the seller.
It's now December 2014... it's Christmas time, and ... my long awaited gift has arrived!
