Just curious to see who got their copies and when. I'm still waiting on mine. :/ Hopefully it gets here before the weekend.

Ignore what I said... got my copy today. It was waiting for me when I got home from work so that's 7 days since it was shipped Thursday the 8th... not bad.

The game seems pretty fun. The graphics are BLAND on the first level but they seem to be spicing up as I progress. I like its simplicity and the weapons/power up system works nicely.

I also got the music and bandana. The CD is really nice actually I have just had it on. Let track 3 play to 7mins 7secs and you'll get a 'bonus' track.

What is everyone gonna do with that bandana? It's a really odd item to have so I would be grateful for any ideas!

throw it away?
eBay it?
hang it up in my room?
store it away?
god forbid... wear it!?

I'm loving the game so far. I was so excited when I saw the enemy ships drop out of the clouds (as in the "stageall" movie) for the first time, in person. Mr. Green

I agree with you that the visuals do seem to perk up rapidly, not unlike the difficulty. (Spoil-ish.) One of the space stages that I saw in the attract mode looked very fluid and dynamic, with the celestial-spherical background (best way that I can describe it) and the zooming ships and everything! I've barely made it to the second level boss on one credit, so, I have a way to go. I'm debating on whether or not to try the 2P ship, since it has slightly different weapon attributes--The laser seems to be more focused, but then, the wide shot also doesn't seem so wide. I think that I remember hearing that the 2P ship is also faster than the 1P, but, it seems the same to me, from the attract mode.

What's for sure, though, is that the game is indeed fun. There's nothing like playing a brand-new DC game in 2005, and having a great time with it. Very Happy

Oh, and, I gave the bandana to my mom. She wears them sometimes, and I knew that she would understand how special it is. Plus, it apparently has purple on it, and that's her favorite color.

Edit- Oh, and, in case anyone hasn't seen this... I think that it's a good thing!

I did steal it, just not off you. Why - did you create it or something? I've been trying to find out who did!

That's the president of Triangle Service, giving us the thumbs-up. This guy put out an incredible amount of the work which went into Trizeal, and word on the street is that the game sold well enough for the company to be out of the red. A dream, a lot of courage, a lot of heart, and a huge show of support from DC and shooting game fans everywhere, and anything is possible!

Truly, a huge win for true gamers. Triangle Service is going to be a great developer to have around. Cool

PS- Le Spank, your avatar is burning into my BRAIN! Laughing

DC Game Beats PSP Game
Take that, Kutariggy!
by IGNDC
April 14, 2005 - Hi... my name is IGN Dreamcast, but you can call me IGNDC. You might remember me from such stories as this one and, less recently, this one.


Six and a half years following release, and the DC is still going in Japan. As we reported earlier in the week, Sega's last system saw some support last week as those blue-blooded souls at Triangle Service released the DC version of the arcade shooter TriZeal. We called it the greatest game ever made thanks to its new modes of play and added stages over the arcade version. Ten out of ten, editor's choice, and gamers in Japan suck if they don't buy it, yadda-yadda-yadda.
Well guess what? It actually sold! And how so! An amazing 2000 copies were shifted this past week at Japanese retail, even though the DC has all but disappeared from shelf space. This 2000 figure is actually greater than a recent PSP release, Harukanaru Toki no Naka De.

Take that, Poo Station Portable!
