    Not exactly the arcade ports I wanted from Sega but the games were good IN THE ARCADE, out of the arcade not so.

    Yeah, I saw that first post and exclaimed out loud in agreement. These were two of the best light-gun games ever made. I can't wait to get home from vacation and play these.

    Oh sorry. I misinterpreted your post. I suppose I read 'deluge' and thought you meant it in the derogatory way, since shovelware on the Wii is obviously a huge problem. And I'd be the first to admit these games probably aren't all that popular outside of the railshooter crowd so I guess I was thinking in the wrong state of mind when I read your post.

    I have this vain hope that the PS3 Move will allow for some HD graphics rail shooter to come out [​IMG] A HD Sin&PUnishment port would be awesome.

    Gunblade NY is kind of weak but LA Machineguns is way gooder. Not as good/long as Ghost Squad

    Instead of weak shooters like these SEGA should be putting out the Virtua Cop games. OK, so VC2 isn't the best lightgun shooter ever but better than either of these and the first game has easily stood the test of time. No fancy 're-imagined' versions either, just straight arcade ports with their original Model 2 board graphics.

    Sega's rail shooters on Wii have all been pretty good. I'm gonna have to check this out!

    I guess you're right. Did a bit of digging and the original game on the N64 was co-developed by Nintendo and Treasure. So they probably have a joint copyright on the materials and series. Kind of a shame. I hope they can bring some other rail shooter or bullet hell shooter to the HD world.

    Gunblade NY - Mediocre game. Didn't really like it.

    L.A. Machineguns - Awesome! Very fast, really exciting. The visuals are truly impressive. This game is from 1997, but it still looks AWESOME! Seriously, overall it looks better than many ultra-next-gen-HD-ohmygod-shaders games. Art style and direction really makes difference.

    I'm gonna buy this games when the price drops. I don't think it is worth 30 dollars.
