Re: DoDonPachi Resurrection September Tournament

Strong style is the best for survival, but the worst for scoring, it seems. I'll stick to it, because I suck at scoring in this game, so the way I see it is that the longer I stay alive, the more likeli it is I'll put down something even remotely substantial on the board.

Re: Shmups

That r-type kickstarter hit it's goal in record time and there's people who don't really play shmups excited for it. I was making a point that maybe a big name and reputation are more important to your casual gamer than quality, though of course, it's all subjective. Very much so. And very relative...

Re: Retro gaming

I'm kind of with Ksub in that I'd never go for a full library of a system myself (shovelware and all), but I also get the appeal as you explain it, Suits. Especially the whole social experience around it. So I'm sad you couldn't complete your sticker album before it became unfeasible. That picture o...

Re: Games Completed 2019

10-9 - Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers (SNES) I had this on the Wii VC, but with my recent love for flipping the 60hz switch on SNES and MD carts (and my enduring love for experiencing vintage games on my cherished CRT TVs), I decided to nab a cheap U.S. cart version... which I'll still...

Re: DoDonPachi Resurrection September Tournament

Like I said, don't expect any miracles from me with this game, even though I like it quite a bit. I'm desperately trying to stay alive, you want me to keep any sort of chain combo going?! :P We have until the end of the month, right? Though I don't see myself massively improving anytime soon. https:...

Re: Shmups

I finally own a 60hz switch modded PAL SNEs and have been a bit addicted to going through my library of carts. It’s been a revelation-like experience, but playing Parodius, Super Aleste and Pocky & Rocky sure takes major adjusting! Feel like I need to relearn these games, almost!

Re: Shmups

DDP Resurrection then, eh? Cool. Was going to say I don't own Astebreed. It's been sitting on my wish list for a while, but I took it off because I got turned off by how chatty it is, the more I saw of it.

Re: Shmups

Both are appealing to me, in different ways. I'm starting to figure survival tactics in Vasara out (charge that melee attack whenever and wherever you can). DFK I've played quite a bit in the past, so I should be able to hit the ground running there. Not great at optimising my chains though, so I do...

^^^^ I could never beat world 8 when I was a kid. The maze like castle always robbed me of my last lives there. Been meaning to try again for a while now.

Re: Anyone a fan of emulation here?

I have a book called ‘Game After’ which is all about game preservation, and it takes the angle that emulation alone isn’t enough. A large part of the cultural artefact that is an old video game is the platform you play it on, and for things like arcade games, the places the machines lived. Playing ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I don't know what you mean here Michiel, but I would say that Reprobate Gamer is not being negative about those games but just expressing a bit of uncertainty about his place on the forum. It can be a bit dispiriting on a discussion forum when no one else is playing the same games as you, though it...

That's a sweet CRT man. Ehhh... It's had its best time.
