Re: Shmups

That’s a little defeatist from the great mind who created this 111-page behemoth. I think your threads are great, and you got a couple of people who don’t usually creep into this cave (pun intended) posting. And we had a visitor! Having said that, you won’t mind if I hold you down and put this tag r...

@Ksub - how is 'Hike the Faroe Islands!" going?
...Is that... Are you talking Death Stranding here? :lol:
Given what I've listened to / read about the game, that's quite a compliment from Chopper towards Kojima's work there :P

I might have a go at this! Are the tournaments asynchronous?

Re: Retro gaming

That's super interesting RE the NES. So you're essentially able to go way past the console's capability.

Re: Top 25 Shmups of All Time (Shmups Forum)

I think Stan’s theory based on recent exterior threads is that to get more people on board with shmups, we must kill the shmups thread. It’s an interesting one! It’s working by the looks of it. Anyway... what a weird system they have in the shmups forum. They make us look normal. Isopod, it’s great ...

Re: Shmups

Oh yeah I went back to try Vasara on Switch, and for the first time I’ve experienced it first hand as opposed to being told it’s there, I encountered very noticeable input lag. Using the stick, wired. This led to some tests between games. Everything else absolutely fine, Vasara terrible.. It’s borde...

Re: Shmups

It’s a shame this game doesn’t save replays (on switch at least) or I’d upload it. It’s been a long road getting here.

Upload your Futari vid clippa!!!

Re: Shmups

I changed cat to the green one, simply to see if it might unlock a new cat by finishing it with continues, and got to the last phase on stage 7 before needing a sole continue to finish it - best I’ve ever done, tired as fuck and slightly inebriated too. The bastard blue cat has been holding me back....

Re: Shmups

Yeah that's the one.

Damn, I need concrete methods... I saw that Steam thing and it's too vague. I've finished the game loads of times and on loads of difficulties but just no 1cc. No Eugene. Bah

Thanks though :)

Re: Shmups

Oh yeah and if you could point me towards how to unlock the different cats on Neko, particularly Eugene which my mate recommended, that would be grand. I assume you'll do it better than Google which was shit. Had a go on Psyvariar Delta at lunch and was terrible. I'm going to concentrate on Neko aga...

Shikhondo is on cheap (£3.14) but it's a bit of an also-ran, a bit touhou - https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-download-software/Shikhondo-Soul-Eater-1433558.html Angerforce (£5.66), again, not top tier but it's good, a bit psikyo - https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-dow...

I think the ultimate example is Football Manager , born from the old Championship Manager team, Sports Interactive, in 2003 after a publisher split. The Championship Manager franchise continued but everyone knew the spiritual successor was Football Manager, which quickly became THE football manageme...

I didn’t find any control issues with Steredenn, but then I’m nowhere near good enough to loop the game. I’ve not put a great deal of time in mind. (Ksub cue: eye...

Hmm thanks, won't bother then. Yeah that game you said about looks good, I don't play games on PC though, but if it comes to console I'll keep a look out.
Steredenn is a good game Alex the controls are absolutely fine on switch, I have it on there. It’s frequently in sales, keep an eye out
