I love both these games, and their sequels. I had a really hard time trying to sort out a pedal for Time Crisis and their sequels on PS2 and I realised that any of the face buttons will hide you and I came across one of these:

Just wrap the thing in thin cloth or something similar and you have a fully functioning and responsive pedal! Worked a treat for me anyhow.
I much preferred Point Blank though and the DS game needs a proper playthrough methinks!
Also did anyone remember the Namco arcade game that was basically a reskinned Point Blank machine where you could actually shoot to win money. The trick was to put in a quid for one go and be really crap until you got to the boss. If you did really well you would get a hard boss and vise-versa. Your pot would always end up a fiver and if you were pretty good at the easy boss you could garantee yourself a profit :P .
Does anyone remember this? I just tried to look it up but can't see any sign of it.... I seem to recall something like 'Money Shot' or similar.

I know we've been through this at some point, but how do I play light gun games on an LCD again?

Buy Move? Is the new HOTD a Move game?

You haven't played Point Blank until you've played it on VERY HARD.

Or Point Blank 2 on INSANE.

It is. It's just another HD Wii port, though.

One of the things in Time Crisis that has stuck in my mind is that boss girl who sort of dances around. I think she was in that open-ended side-story mode that was added to the PSX port.

At the end of her cutscene she says something like "Dance, baby, dance...dance to the death!" in a kind of surreal way. I would always chuckle at the weirdness. Me and my mates used to say it to taunt the brave souls who'd make their way to the dance floor at school discos whilst the rest of us sat on the sides drinking Panda Pops.

The PS3 HD release of the game is more than that. It's to feature two exclusive new levels as well as being in 3D.

I loved both games in the arcades. I'm a bit ignorant but is it possible to play those games on PS2 using a flat-screen HDTV, using a gun? I live in a studio so I don't want to give up space for a CRT TV. I don't know if I can buy a specific gun that will work with modern TV's.

Yes you can, but you'll need to buy a specific gun with sensors.

Search www.playasia.com for the 'Top Gun II lightgun'. Works brilliantly on most HDTVs - but it's only compatible with the PS2, XBOX and PC.

Haven't found one that works with the PS1 yet unfortunately, so no Time Crisis 1 or Point Blank for me at the moment!

"YOUR FATHER WILL PAY THE PRICE FOR DESTROYING THE IMPERIAL RULE"

For me Time Crisis will always be one of the best light gun games that ever exists.

I remember Christmas 1996, getting a Playstation for Christmas and my Grandma got me Time Crisis. The big box is still immaculate and sits proudly on one of my shelves at home. Loves the sequel on the PS2 as well. Ive played the ones following, but only briefly.

And also a big fan of Point Blank. The satisfaction that comes from the "shoot the falling leaf with only one bullet" cannot be described.

The game was released here in late November 1997!
