Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Played a bit of Prey and wasn't really feeling it so I decided to rebel against the system and booted up ECHO instead. I had to instruct my trusted rubber band (nicknamed Klaus ) to "play" through the tutorial for me, though. He was looking a tad dehydrated towards the end, but it's nothing that a q...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I urge everyone to check out slay the spire, especially those who would never even consider playing a card game. You have to trust me on this, the game transcends the genre and is very accessible. You were saying you fancied a holiday from the breakneck adrenalin pace of shmups, owly, this would be...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Hm. I now have the overwhelming urge to turn on my PlayStation 4 and look for a game called Slay the Spire.

No idea where this is coming from. It's the strangest thing!

Re: Shmups

Okay, I edited some of my jokes. It was all in good fun on my end, but I don't want clippa to take this the wrong way or to come off like a bad sport somehow. @Stanshall DDP Resurrection looks fantastic, but I think I will take a break from shmups for the time being and play other things first. I th...

Re: Shmups

Great skills! As ever, you can't be trusted to leave a high score well alone :( Mate, I got over 10 years of Mercs experience under my belt. I won't be intimidated by some low-rent MADE IN GERMANY™ shmup! :P Made the game look more fun than I remember it, too. Just wait til you get round to DDP Res...

Re: Shmups

Really good play, man. Thanks! Gutter about that bomb during the boss too Yeah, but that wasn't the only mistake. It was a pretty flawed run, all things considered. I could have gotten a sixth bomb through even more thorough use of the Focus Shot. I whiffed at least two of the larger enemies' bonus...

Re: Shmups

Oh god, this sounds ominous. Not at all, I assure you. :) So, I suppose my score is "2,548,930,400" You know, that's a cute Ghost Blade score you've got there. Top of the Steam leaderboards and all that. It'd certainly be a shame if some smelling salts-sniffing nerd were to come along and beat that.

Re: Sound of Play: 199

Great show, and very interesting picks from James. Especially the very last track, which is one of my favorites from the entire Halo series. :)

Re: Play Asia Order - Anyone want anything ??

I was weak and grabbed both Battle Garegga and Ketsui anyway, plus a couple of sweet soundtracks.

Now the anxious waiting begins. 8-)

Looking forward to the inevitable budget localization announcement next week and me trying to rationalize my purchase.

Re: Shmups

Okay, real talk: Given its built-in octagonal gate, complete lack of stick drift due to the absence of any sort of LS button, super tight deadzone and sturdy build quality, is there any shmup player out there who's playing with the GameCube controller and the WiiU/Switch USB adapter? I'd love to see...

Re: Shmups

Dumb question: When things are getting tight and precision is needed, do you guys prefer to use the d-pad for its immediacy or the analogue stick for its smooth diagonals? On a controller, obviously. I know "arcade stick" is the true answer to everything. I've been playing with the stick so far, but...

I massively recommend it.
I forgot to reply at the time, but I did watch the first video you posted in its entirety and thought it was incredible, despite the commentators best efforts to undermine everything. :P

Will be checking this one when I have the time for sure.

Re: Shmups

Interesting. Personally, I've enjoyed what I've played of SFR in terms of movement, level layout and enemy design, but the reason I haven't gone back to it lately is because of all the grinding and resource system. Shmups should be all about pure skill in my opinion, and arbitrary RPG mechanics are ...

I'll never be able to do that level in the bonus tasks.
Don't say that! I'm sure it's feasible.

I have complete and utter faith in you. :)

Re: Play Asia Order - Anyone want anything ??

I was just looking at some of those sweet shmups with Asia-only releases yesterday!

But those prices are really prohibitive, I'd have to deal with Japanese/Korean text, and there's always the chance they would come out here sooner or later...

Argh, decisions, decisions! :?

Re: If you could only pick one console...

I am really struggling with this one. My first instinct is to say GameCube for its GOAT controller, amazing RE line-up and multitude of Nintendo first-party heavyweights. But it does suffer from a dearth of content in comparison to the others and I would end up missing a lot of the stuff that's not ...

Re: Shmups

Aaaah, so it looks like killing enemies with the focus shot is what makes the bomb gauge fill up? So it's pretty basic Indirectly, yes. It spawns Tech Orbs and collecting those fills the bomb meter. You can get up to 5 bombs on the Score Attack level. I don't think 6 is possible, but I could be wro...
