Strictly for laughs, I just had a go at original Gradius without power-ups. (I did allow myself a single speed-up, just to stop it being painfully slow and dull, but absolutely no weapon upgrades.) I cruised to the end of level 4 before it even started to get difficult (the enemy generators between ...

Re:

In a much more sober way then: - Clocking Gradius without any power up is virtually impossible and goes against the very mechanics of the game. Clocking (i.e. not dying) in earlier shooters without any power up is possible. Since when did "clocking" mean "not dying"? "Clocking" means "looping the s...

Re:

Names. I want names. And please, no "1942", Galaga" or "Moon Cresta" in your list (see? That's where the word "comprehensive" comes in handy: all those earlier games could be clocked without the use of their limited upgrading system. So could Gradius. According to my dear pals over at shmups.com, G...

Re:

3. Good spot about Parodius - the first version was actually the MSX one, which did indeed come out in 1988. However, the piece is called "The Definitive GRADIUS", and quite explicitly excludes Parodius from the Gradius lineage, and so unfortunately the "error" is inadmissible. Can you dodge bullet...

Re:

As always, what a great issue. Tons of cool stuff to read; just keep up the good work. One big complaint from the Gradius fan that I am, though: the "definitive" Gradius is all but definitive - first, because by making the article a simple, descriptive list of all major Gradius titles, Stu overlook...

Re:

Good to have another writer from the glory years of the 80's on board now, good stuff ! Correct me if I'm wrong, but Stu didn't go pro until 1990/1991? Gamesweek in New Computer Express being the first "big time" writing? A very refreshing change when he took over that column as it had previously b...

I'll try to struggle on somehow.

Thanks others for the kind words. If you thought the Gradius feature was good, wait till you see the ones on Outrun and Space Invaders...

I've got an enormously comprehensive definitive guide to every BD game on every format ever (20-odd different titles), but I can cut it down to a sentence for you - play the Christmas 2002 Edition, it's astoundingly good.
