Dash Text: Thrilling retro run-and-gun action is back with a vengeance in Hard Corps: Uprising, a new 2D side-scroller developed by ARC System Works that pays homage to classic Konami action series. Play as the soldier Bahamut as he begins to write his legend. Battle in the grueling trenches of Arcade mode, where only the best-of-the-best can survive to the end, or the all-new Rising mode, where a life bar and point system allow you to purchase items and upgrades to build your soldier up and achieve ultimate victory. Need help? Partner with a friend to lay down some serious carnage.

    Tried a trial, the controller layout just doesn’t work for me. We have an extra thumb stick, you can use it for shooting. Games like this would be so much better to me if they just included a twin stick option.

    I have a question. Why is there no promotion to go with this seasonal arcade push? There is usually a “buy 2 or 3 of the games, get x amount of MS Points back” sort of deal. Honestly, I was planning on buying 3 of these games (Torchlight, Poker and Beyond Good and Evil HD), but if there isn’t some sort of rebate promo, I will find it harder to drop the cash for that many XBLA games that close together…

    Because the rate of fire depends on your rate of button-smashing. And one of the weapon has a power shot, by holding the fire button for awhile then release it.

    If thumb-stick is used, these can’t be done.
