The Bosses don't appear in the trailer until around 37 seconds.
Oh don't get me wrong, I am interested in this, and I haven't played it so I don't want to judge. It just seems as though the game plays a little slow. Not a slow pace, which I actually don't mind, but it seems a little lacking in the action department. Again, I am only going off what I am seeing.

The weapons look cool, the controls look unique and the bosses look impressive. Might make the dive here, but not sure. Minigore has taken over my life

If an Developer is just increasing the Difficult Level to stretch the Gameplay Length instead of actually adding enough Content to a Game then I honestly won`t just look away or for God's Sake use terms like You're not being willing to rise to the challenge to pretend something is there when it`s obvious that it isn't.

We aren`t talking here about an Freemium Shooter everybody can try out for Free or where someone can just download an Lite Build of it. Someone is actually charging Money for it and I don`t give a damn if it`s $1.99 or $50 when it`s unbalanced to cover up the actual Gameplay Length.

If the Developer would have released an Lite Build of it we wouldn`t have this talk at all because probably everyone else would know by now that there is something wrong and I wouldn`t have to mention it at all...

K... Well then let's just agree that people interested in knowing how balanced it is can just watch your vid and judge for themselves how much stock to put into your impressions based on how you played the game.



aaaand...

... with this, are you really telling people to check out Cave games and praising them because they DON'T do this exact thing?

Shmups are hammered by players when they DON'T include multiple difficulties... and here you are bashing the developers because they included it...

Grah... whatever...

Look it`s obvious that we see the Game in a different Light and I`m fine with it but we both should for the greater good just wait a few more Days and see how others think about it because similar as Ying & Yang we two will never reach a Level where we both agree about anything if it comes to Alpha Zero.

Yeah... sorry I got all worked up...

Just... I'm really enjoying this game - probably as much as you're not, if not more so...

I know I spoke out of line, and it was uncalled for.

No need to be sorry. I`m glad that we both don`t agree on every Game because otherwise it would have been kinda strange in the longer run. It`s nice to know that out of like 100. Games we both have played in the last couple of Weeks there is one that I totally don`t get into it, for whatever reason I might have, while you dig it.
