    “A battle of unprecedented scale.”

     

    It sure has been a while, but here I am with platinum one hundred and three :awesome: Recently a local friend asked me to co-op a shmup with him on Xbox so that he may pop all the achievements. That shump being Under Defeat. I’m slightly familiar with Under Defeat as an arcade game that was ported to Dreamcast. It’s quite known for it being the last game on the console… until it wasn’t anymore 😅 That rank then went to Triggerheart Exelica. As things are now, I’m sure even it isn’t considered the final Dreamcast game anymore xD With the amount of homebrew projects and unreleased titles constantly surfacing, Dreamcast is going to live on for a long time 🙃 Getting back to Under Defeat, I was unaware this even had an HD port until my friend brought it to my attention. We popped all his achievements thanks to the 2-player mode, and in return.. I asked him to help me with the PS3 version 😛 For a shmup, it’s rather easy since you can unlock infinite continues by leaving the game idle in both modes for 8 hours each. Of course having a second player makes it go by more smoothly 😋 As long as you both don’t lose all your lives at the same time, it won’t set you back to a checkpoint 👌🏻

    For a shmup, Under Defeat is a bit unconventional but offers plenty of control styles to help make it feel more modern in its design. I recommend the dual stick layout since you’re most likely using a controller to get the job done 😋 It’s a short lived journey, all you must do is beat both Arcade Mode and New Order Mode on all three difficulties, making sure to activate extra mode once for Arcade and once for New Order out of those six playthroughs. There’s a few miscellaneous trophies here and there, but most should pop from natural gameplay. Not much else to say other than it was still fun to blow things up while rocking out to some otherwise decent tunes 😋 Hopefully one of these days I can muster the strength to tackle a more difficult shmup. But for those looking for a place to start, this would be a fine enough choice 😁
