Re: Anyone a fan of emulation here?

Big fan of emulation. Various reasons why: - Preservation. Many games are never coming back without emulation due to licencing issues, or companies that have vanished etc, historical preservation is essential - Convenience. A selfish one this, but it's easier for me to emulate older games than rig u...

Re: Shmups

Oh. Well I did say Steam specifically, if I said PC I'd have mentioned BWRP, Cho Ren Sha 68k, Edens Aegis, Hydorah in a list of what I have installed :) Not to mention ShmupMame which I need to mess with when I get time. They'll all get love in due course. Well maybe not Hydorah as I'm unsure I actu...

Re: Shmups

Get in! No turning back Alex! My latest shmupdate: Finished DDP Res Black Label. Loved it but spent about 300 credits getting there! Back to 1.5 novice next. Also I went to play Desthsmiles last night when the missus went to bed. Felt a bit tired... Woke up at 4am in my chair, game still on the titl...

Re: Shmups

I play to have fun. If I get better, that's a happy coincidence. What a quote. :lighter: I'm of the same ilk tbh. I think it might be different if I had more time, but I don't. And I don't resent that. It's precious and valuable doing this shit. I want to enjoy every second! The times I do obsess i...

Re: Shmups

Yeah, I recall you mentioning it - I did buy Danmaku 2 in the Steam sale for a ludicrously cheap price on your recommendation, I will be playing that at some point! Glad to see 3 isn't just me... From all the shmups I've been playing, I thought going back to Danmaku 3 might mean I get further and us...

Re: Shmups

Side note: this isn’t an easy or particularly accessible shmup in my opinion, which kinda flies in the face of what I’ve seen read about it. I find it tough even on the easiest mode and the bullet patterns a few stages in start getting quite fast and sporadic, from all angles and I keep ending up in...

Re: Shmups

Right here you go there’s my starter for ten, a pitiful effort where I got to the stage 3 boss before needing a continue: https://i.ibb.co/Ny7rGWv/image.jpg All together now “awwwwww” I went for spirit mode on easy. That means it does auto bombs if you’re gonna get hit. Scoring potential is probably...

Can't say I have fully connected with this one yet (largely due to discovering older games I'd say) but I will go back to it.

ketsuipachi mode?
Is that "black label arrange" mode?
the blurb on Steam's page for DDP Res wrote:Control the Tiger Schwert from KETSUI in the first international release for this mode!

Re: Shmups

I can't rememeber exactly what I picked but I know I went for something that said Autobomb :D I think it's important to note that DDP handles difficulty a bit differently than other games. I don't think there is any dedicated "Expert" mode but there are noticeable changes in enemy / bullet patterns ...

Re: Shmups

Fired up Dodonpachi Resurrection duing an ill-advised late night, and had a go on Black Label. Christ. Exciting as hell but man it is tough! I played through 4 stages I think (using quite a few continues) and it's baffling to be how you'd survive without using credits. I think it was on Novice mode ...

Wow Stan. You met a real life Keyboard Dynasty Warrior. Sounds like you were lucky to escape uninjured! We've all had our scrapes over the years I'm sure but that has to be one insanely rare exception when online meets IRL. To highlight positives, I've had so many positive experiences with people I'...
