Beating Atheon in the bowels of the Vault of Glass for the first time is bar far the most memorable MP experience I've done with my mates.

Weeks it took.

Bloody outstanding experience that. Brilliant.

Re: Destiny / Destiny 2

Destiny raids are the best co operative experience there is. Period. I’ve just accepted the time in my life where I could play these games enough to access the good bits is over. If you don’t have 15-20 hours a week to plough into this (and mates who also do) it’s not gonna happen.

Re: Shmups

The insatiable addiction continues - bought Danmaku Unlimited 3 so I could have another fresh shmup while away. Also wanted to try Tate mode and knew this game had it, to pretend I’ve got a little tabletop arcade. Works a treat! https://imgshare.io/images/2019/06/18/2AD9D65B-D996-4053-927C-99BCA5D21...

Re: Shmups

Congrats Stanshall! I watched some 1cc footage of that game to get the gist and it looks insanely tough. I can’t even fathom the pattern memorisation / traversal stuff. You got serious skills!

Re: Shmups

To be honest, I'd never thought the designs in Shikhondo were dodgy in that moe way Me either - played through the lot last night in novice mode, it does depend what your boundaries are but personally I saw nothing problematic or embarrassing to be playing at all. Two bosses had prominent boobies i...

No no no! Immense enjoyment from each and every page here there is no need for beer fear :D your post was great, IMO. As was the class throwback toon top.

Re: Shmups

Thanks for the note on Shikhondo - I’ll make sure my toddler isn’t around when I get to the bosses :D I fully agree, this thread is lovely. Just a few of us cracking on, learning about and adoring a genre, telling each other our little tales, chronicling the journey. No BS, no aggro. You’re clearly ...

Re: Shmups

So much passion here for this genre I fucking love it. I’m full of beer and have played through another classic in MAME, Guwange. It threw me a bit initially as the gunfire moves left and right on its own axis a bit (not sure how to explain it but you will know what I mean no doubt) when you move an...

Re: Shmups

Someone replied on Rllmuk, I asked there as there's a shmups thread there too. I figured casting a wide net may get me what I wanted. Gonna check the whole soundtrack out!

More classics tonight. Blazing Star is great! Some slowdown on the busier sections but inventive bosses, particularly the final boss.

Re: Shmups

Ouch Ksub! You're right, that's just the kind of hassle I can't be arsed with when gaming... and I'm a techie! Last thing I want to be doing is fucking around with my PC when I've got rare leisure time.

Re: Shmups

Oh also: I had some WOW moments last night! A lot of them. After some research into what are considered classic shmups, I set up my somewhat dormant raspberry pi, to see what the fuss was all about. Synced up my glorious pink stick which took seconds (mmm) and then jumped into the MAME folder. Turns...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

The only thing I'm really excited about is a Breath of the Wild sequel, but even that is something I could happily wait for, though I am glad it's coming to Switch. That was unexpected for me with this E3 considering they're peddling the Link's Awakening remaster too. I don't really mind that there ...

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

That's it like, a catch-all service would be the dream, but how much would it be? I used to laugh at the amount people would fork out for Sky TV with the movies and sports packages and 30,000 useless channels with carp fishing out-takes and that. Now our subscription services combined will dwarf tha...
