Re: Shmups

Haha! Excellent. This thread is fucking fantastic man. I've just realised on my Neko Navy run last night getting to Day 5, I didn't use any bomb thing at all, I need to remember that's a thing. I'm using the fat cat now and it's huge to compute that I don't need to worry about the body beyond the li...

Re: Play Asia Order - Anyone want anything ??

So tempted with Japan-only shmups and Yen points cards... Argh. I shouldn't... Very kind of you to offer here Suits.

Re: Splatoon 2

Shit sorry Suits - forgot to reply. I find it hard to commit to a time but I'm generally able to play from 10pm for an hour or two most nights, unless there are bairn-settling issues (I have evening responsibilities with mine). Shall we just join each other now and again ad hoc & build up to a more ...

Re: Shmups

Mate don't worry about this I need a keyring version of you for everyday living :D I used to post on a forum where if you said you didn't like a game, the people that did like it would take it as a personal insult and gang up on you. This place is much nicer, but I'm still a bit cautious of upsetti...

Re: Shmups

it's pure F2P mobile game in structure Now I didn't want to say this as I have already alluded to a prejudice I have (hey we're not all perfect) with mobile games and games with mobile roots, but this is exactly the feeling I get from all I've detailed about my experiences in a nutshell. I think I'...

Re: Shmups

On the plus side tonight I’ve reached Day 5 on Neko Navy which I’m really enjoying now. Beautiful happy art & lush music to cleanse the mind while the gameplay attacks the senses - last time I played this I only just scraped Day 3 so I’m slowly getting better albeit without putting in serious time t...

Re: Shmups

Struggling with Sky Force Reloaded it has to be said. I’m still stuck having to repeat the first two levels due to not having enough medals to progress yet - the weapon, despite lots of upgrades in the garage and constant “weapon upgraded” token things, feels piss weak with a low unsatisfying fire r...

Re: If you could only pick one console...

I'm going with the PS Vita . - The library is amazing. Whatever the genre, I'm covered. I have more Vita games (physically and digitally) than for any other system. Those who consider the Vita to "have no games" are quite simply, idiots. Visual novels, RPGs, big games, little games, puzzle games, ac...

Mine was from a few months in (June/July 2017) and doesn’t appear to have any significant issues. Perhaps not Nintendo’s best ever d-pad but I use it all the time for Tetris, Puyo, and lots of retro stuff.
Aye, I played a lot of Tetris 99 yesterday and used the d-pad, it feels pretty good to me.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Hmm. Is there a way you can test if your pad is affected? Mind you I probably should just forget this, as if mine is affected and I just haven't noticed, I'll never hear the end of it from my brain.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

What's up with the d-pad on the pro controller? I've got one and have never noticed any issues. I got it when I got my Switch, too. I agree it's a fantastic pad.

It's either the Vita or the Switch for me... I'll expand when I pick a winner.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Tetris 99 Giving me a reason to play this other than to get hammered by other players was a masterstroke from Nintendo - I worked on unlocking the Game Boy theme which was a lot of fun, and it made me realise how good the game is too - I'm definitely going to have a bash now and again. Best I came ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

It's a mobile port? Uh oh... I have an irrational, often unfounded dislike for anything mobile or with mobile roots :D Well that's just silly. Weren’t you just playing Sky Force, Haze? Yep! I did reference this preconception when discussing Sky Force before purchasing it (from Shmups thread): I mus...

Re: Splatoon 2

I really enjoyed the single player, it's long, varied, challenging and fun (albeit infuriating at times). Not sure why it isn't more lauded to be honest, but it's not the main selling point of the game I guess. I think it's a bit like Titanfall 2 in that respect. If anyone here is still playing this...
