I saw your post, went to amazon, ended up with r type final 2 Inaugural Flight Edition, thinking it was Raiden... Maybe some inner reflex took over. Perhaps my NIS fanboyism took control or maybe because rrtype and gradus were my snes shooter staples and stayed my favorite shooters until i bought a neo geo aes and alpha mission 2 ten years down the road. Since then I've been a little meh on shooters. I've got a lot stashed away, and i've bought some crappy ones on ps4 (cough psyvariar delta). I'm hoping once i get around to unwrapping rtype and / or ordering raiden, i'll have found something more engaging, more reminiscent of those early 90's masterpieces.
