    I loved this episode, whilst driving in my car I felt like I should go up, down, do a barrel roll and shoot other cars with my mega-blaster! I am glad you mentioned Galaxy Force and Thunder Blade, apparently they are basically the same game but one is present day (as of 1989) military and the other takes place in space, presumably in the future. My faves was definitely the Twin Bee episode.

    How do I view the episodes? You talk about episode but I don’t see anything but this notice.

    Ales-tay is how I always pronounced it too. How about that, being on the same page as Brent for pronunciation. 🙂

    To avoid that question though you could have called it by the western name. Can I recommend you listen to the Master System version’s soundtrack also? Aleste II/Power Strike 2 are different games on each (that merely share the same name and weapon system) both with good soundtracks of their own. Stage 3 is my favourite track. For the GG one it’s Bionic City.
