Re: Games Completed 2020

While most enemy types and bosses are very good, there are a few that are big misfires. Quick question if you don't mind. As far as enemy design goes, what do you think about the various Damned Chess Pieces? I know they're very divisive, a lot of folks dislike them and find them hard to read, etc.....

Re: Shmups

I'm too busy participating in the feud of the millennium with some japanese gentleman on the Vanquish leaderboards (stayed up all night and finally reclaimed my spot!!) to be able to dive into any sort of shmup at the moment, but that was a great read. I really wish M2's Dangun Feveron would get an ...

Re: Ikaruga

I know that you have broader concerns about the disposable perception of the medium so I understand why this got your radar beeping! Yeah. That's all there is, really. Bit difficult to discern what is and isn't serious in writing and my brain is just a bit over-zealous today. Real talk, I am going ...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Awesome feedback, thanks! Kind of what I sensed from the first 10 minutes of playing it last night. Will go back to it for sure when the time is right. Of course! You're very welcome. :) Ace Attorney is an amazing series, but (speaking from experience) it's also a very easy one to burn out on. Taki...

Re: Ikaruga

Absolutely no offense or disrespect intended towards anybody, but I can't help but be a tad disappointed to see how smoothly this thread transitioned from celebrating Stan's amazing new score to celebrating chucking the entire game out of the window. Stan's compulsive relationship with this game is ...

Re: Games Completed 2020

(But please holler if you think I'm missing out on an epic conclusion. A friend I asked couldn't recall a thing about it, so I presumed it wasn't amazing) The bonus case is definitely worth playing, although it is really more of a standalone story rather than the conclusion of the main game and the...

Re: Ikaruga

I'd say 30k for the three seconds I lost but that's it. The scoring for shooting and absorbing is minimal. Cool, cool. So it's a really different scoring system from basically everything else out there. Gotta say man, that run looks great. I'm totally out of the zone right now, but this gave me the...

Re: Ikaruga

Just watched the replay. Amazing stuff! (He even micro-taps through the side strings at the start to maximize absorption gains, the absolute legend .) Do you know if the boss choke ruined an even higher score, or is it purely a matter of "max chain + absorption bonus"? I'm not really up-to-date with...

I can get on with my life again now, and back to Groove Coaster and Ketsui Deathtiny. Ha, even you don't believe that! That S++ is going to continue to torment you until you have it. Don't play responsible adult with me now. :P Also, did you really smash your pad or was it some poetic license again...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Just got back from watching 1917 in my local theater. I was going to try and cobble together something resembling a coherent review, but words are failing me today and ThirdMan very eloquently said everything that needed to be said exactly one month ago, so I'll leave it at that. Fantastic experienc...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Vanquish (PS4) I struggle to articulate how much I love this game without resorting to my admittedly overused habitual talking points. The story is Saturday Morning Cartoon nonsense, the environments are bland and repetitive, the forced walking sections (read: masked loading times) are infuriating,...

Re: Ikaruga

I’d love to play Radiant Silvergun for the history lesson actually... is it available anywhere? Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the only official port is on the Xbox 360. That's where I have it. Wasn't it available for Sega Saturn too? Yes, but only in Japan as far as I can tell. I meant loc...

Re: Ikaruga

So I've just finished (re-)watching the replay of the top spot on the PS4 leaderboards. And honestly, this might very well be one of the most mesmerizing and awe-inspiring thing I've ever seen in my life. The sheer amount of self-control and planning and raw energy that must have gone into that full...

Re: All things Mega Man

Open question since some of you are currently revisiting the series: What do you make of the fact that Mega Man can only ever shoot horizontally and straight forward? It doesn't bother me because it's not true. ;D Special weapons are often specifically designed to work around this issue. Zero doesn...
