    Default Time to dust off the light-gun!

    Got a light-gun hidden away in your closet?
    You feel like you're not ignoring your next-gen console enough?
    Well, let's squish two at once, shall we!

    Not too long ago, Dot50Cal won a bidding round for a copy of the rather "mythical" Biohazard - Gun Survivor demo disc. The ending price was roughly around $150.

    The disc is;
    レスキューショットブービーぼー&バイオハザードガンサバイバー ガンコン対応シューティング体験版 [SLPM-80522]
    Which roughly translates to;
    "Rescue Shot Bubibo & Biohazard Gun Survivor - Trial Versions for GunCon"

    This is more than just an sneak peak at Biohazard - Gun Survivor, but also a little piece of development history in the relationship between Namco and Capcom, the two companies that've worked together to bring you things such Gun Survivor 2 - Code:Veronica and Namco X Capcom.

    The disc was most likely a free demo given out with the GunCon.


    Now, some collectors and die-hard fans might say that it's a bit sad to see such a rarity now become publicly available, as there really isn't much material that hasn't become available to the public these days. But on the brighter side, it'll also mean that anyone who would be doing trades might have to dig deeper in their pockets to find something interesting and new, which will ofcourse contribute to bringing even more obscure and unseen material to the fans.


    So, here's a little present from the staff at The Horror Is Alive;


    Fetching QR code... Get your cellphone camera ready


    Haha, now you're probably wondering, where's the link!?
    Well, we'll let you play a little bit of detective!
    It's there, we assure you!
    If you can't find it, maybe someone who has can give you some pointers over at the forums/comments section?

    If anyone complains about it being released I'll eat their face off. I paid 150$ for it, so they have nothing to complain about. USA folk are going to need help on this. I dont think QR codes are standard here yet so not many cell phones have it.

    Found it... Clever way of hiding the link...

    Especially when the image isn't displaying properly and you need to view the source to know what's going on...

    Was a bitch to decrypt by hand...

    I saw no image, although I did see the mouse over code when I viewed the source of the page... Thought that was part of the game...
