I know this is going to sound really picky but I don't understand how we've went from the lovely properly shaped shadows in the spiritual prequel to this game on Saturn, Guardian Heroes, to the crappy circle shadows in this game.

That means a spiritual prequel to a game released in 1996, 16 frikin years ago, is in some ways technically and visually more impressive than it's spiritual sequel released in 2012.

Something is just very very wrong with that.

Here's footage of the recent remix of Guardian Heroes, set to the original's pixel mode, for a visual reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAHZZ_yeuDA
