New Holy Grail Contender

Ketsui Limited Edition received today.

Anyone up on Cave shooting games knows this thing has been rumored, announced, feared and delayed all to hell. The developer 5pb has had the rights to this thing for an age, but all the contorversy and glitchiness surrounding their previous Cave port Dodonpachi Daioujou Black Label Extra has had the shooter nerds all nervous and critical about the possibilites for this port.

One of the few Cave games released recently (though the arcade original is almost eight years old) that doesn't feature young girl protagonists, it is quite a bit more gritty and rockin' than one might expect. And the port is GREAT (Tony the tiger voice)!

More on this game later, but I had to make something of a deal of it. I was trying not to buy into the hype about this game, but still really anticipated it. The LE includes a booklet and a DVD case with two soundtrack CDs in it.
