Hey guys,

Just wanted to let you all know Ikaruga comes out on Steam in a few days!

Seems to even include a VERT mode, interesting to see how well it runs and how faithful it is.

Double Play Mode: You can play 2 Players game with one controller.
5 levels. Tactical level design and boss battles.

Replay data save is available.
You can also download them from the Leaderboards.

The biggest feature I'll be missing is Shinra, walking towards Ikaruga when selecting difficulty.

Ah well, at least I can play on Dreamcast. They'll still be taking my money though!

Wow that's odd, I like that. Any speculation why it would be removed?

What I would like to see is Steam Workshop Replay support!

It's because it's a port of the Xbox Live Arcade version, which has that scene removed. Is a shame though, sometimes I let the timer run out while selecting difficulty because it's so badass.

Steam is a Digital Distribution system created by Valve for PCs.

The way you would buy and play the game is by downloading the Steam Client, creating an account and purchasing the game from its store page like most digital stores. To play, you run the steam client and select the game. It's important to know that when you buy from Steam it does have DRM. You can only play the game from steam and you only purchase a license to play it -- you don't own the game.

I don't know of anything recent regarding price but a while ago Treasure said they would aim for a $9.99 price point, though we'll have to wait a couple of days to be certain.

So am I right in saying that these games ARE not suitable for a Standalone PC Based Arcade Cabinet (No network / internet)

Put steam in offline mode. Go to steampowered.com and try it out, there is some free stuff and demos on there i think.

disclaimer: im not a fan of drm, digital purchases and steam. I only use it where necessary, in this case left4dead and orange box.

They are fine for a standalone! All you need is to login once, then turn Steam to offline mode, then thats it!

As to the Renting a license rather than owning a game, anytime you've ever bought a game it's the exact same thing. You NEVER own a game, even physical copies aren't YOURS!

Steam is awesome because it removes the need for finding disc's and/or scratches! Case in point, I was in another state sans my PC, and I could log in and download Super Street Fighter IV AE, and play.

I was very dubious of steam, but I love it now, no need to have physical copies and only download the games you are currently playing
