Re: Shmups

Thread has got even more awesome since heading off the the wilderness :) Dropping by to say I just finished Dariusburst on PSP, used a few continues but it was a blast. It kinda feels like how I want the likes of R-Type & Thunder Force to feel - a non-bullet Hell hori which is playable and fun, and ...

Re: Shmups

Cheers for the recommendations - I think I’m gonna tale my PSP which has loads of shmups ready. Had a go on Steel Empire on Megadrive last night and got through stage 1, good fun that!

Re: Shmups

Best shmups on Vita / 3DS? Going camping tomorrow... need to take a smaller handheld than the Switch. My mate just bought Root Letter off me so I’ve got a tenner of PayPal credit the wife hasn’t siphoned off yet Edit: I’ve already got Fast Striker which is alright but a bit shit if I’m honest. What ...

Re: Shmups

Nice write up Stanshall! Noted modesty for novice 1cc but I’m impressed even if you aren’t :) You mention emulating Ketsui / DDP DOJ, is that in MAME? I don’t seem to have either of those in my retropi list. Can you elaborate? I played all the way through 12 stages of Hurricane of the Varstray in ar...

Re: Shmups

Ah man. You’re all such lovely people :) I bought that Steredenn, £4.61. Came free with Transcripted which is a twin stick / match 3 hybrid that’s usually £6.99. Bargain or what? Haven’t played either yet. My mate who 1cc’d me on Neko Navy was over yesterday, I told him about Rolling Gunner. He’s de...

Re: Shmups

It’s mad at this stage in life where my first thought is “I can’t wait to tell the lads on the forum” :D Slightly concerned that it didn’t give me the option to save the replay and I can’t find my score. Whatever, it happened and the photo is proof enough. Aye clippa though the last boss is a bit of...

Re: Shmups

Nah Rolling Gunner is the first, I don’t know if it really gets me a seat at the 1cc table if it’s not a higher difficulty level (there are 4, this is the easiest of 4) but like I say I can’t see a future of getting 1cc at high levels. Yet, at least.

Re: Shmups

Absolutely thrilled and pumped with adrenaline after that. So yeah you need to 1cc the boss to get the real end boss, even on this difficulty. I got to it with plenty of lives thankfully as I’ve learned some tricks along the way now to manage the hoards on stage 6 in particular. Man. I know it’s the...

Re: Shmups

I bought Rolling Gunner last night and got to the ‘extra’ final boss on my first credit on the easier mode. One night! You downplay your ability Leon but knowing this game like I do now, I’m genuinely impressed. I’ve just gone back and read Stanshall’s excellent post about how he got good with shmu...

Re: Shmups

Lost my 1cc attempt again on the last phase of the boss on stage 6 of Rolling Gunner. Pretty dismayed. This is the easiest difficulty level and it feels within reach but the skill just isn’t there. I have to find a way to get to the boss with more lives / bombs. Sincerely hope you lot aren’t expecti...

Re: Shmups

Hmm, so with Sterendenn Ikaruga really we're talking it'll Ikaruga be some handheld shmup Isaac Ikaruga replacement as opposed to a big telly Ikaruga stick game. I think Ikaruga I'll probably get it. Ikaruga.

Oh yeah, don't let the analogue controls put you off, the digital controls are still there and work perfectly.
For Steredenn?

Re: Shmups

Cheers - if anything it just makes me want the PS4 version (when I eventually feel sadistic enough to buy Ikaruga), as I don't want analogue controls polluting the gameplay. I don't see why that would ever be implemented with a true shmup tbh, particularly one as lauded and pure as Ikaruga. Even in ...

Re: Shmups

So I'm afraid whoever told you this has been feeding you fake info. :( Well... The 360 and steam ports of ikaruga added analogue control. I think the switch version is based on the pc port so aye, you might want to stick with a pad on that, especially if that's how you've learned the game. And yeah...

Re: Shmups

Yeah mins is a PS4/PS3 USB arcade stick, works a treat. The fact it can do wireless is a bonus - you can use wireless Playstation / Xbox / Wii U pads with it but I've only used it with the arcade stick so far. I've not noticed any lag at all, it seems perfect to me but then I'd wager you need to eit...
