Looks like all of the Metal Slug games will be on sale for 1.99

Theprice changes haven't taken effect yet in the U.S., and I'm not yet sure if they will all be on sale for the same price, but so far I can confirm that by tonight, Metal Slug 1, 2, and X will be on sale.

No appinfo because it isn't necessary yet. I know the mods have some issues with me posting deals wothout exact times/dates, but this is for all of the members who might miss a sale without advance notice.

It isn't up to me if whether or not this thread vanishes.

Metal Slug X is a perfect balance between relatively " short" 1 and totally insane 3.I watched waltrought of Metal Slug 3 last mission and I now wonder how many people in whole world managed to finish game, that mission is as long as all other combined

I picked up 1 & 3 during a past sale. I probably need to grab X, but I'm short on itunes funds and am going to save whats left for something original.

Metal Slug 1 is 5G widescreen optimized. The main menu is not but there is a setting for gameplay under "video options" that allows you to toggle between full frame and widescreen (along with toggling video filtering and scanlines). I assume the rest are 5G widescreen optimized but can not confirm.

Is Metal Slug 2 unworthy? I am considering picking up the 2, 3, and X. Should I skip 2, or any of the others? Thanks in advance.
