Preaching to the choir here, with the choir consisting of me. :P

Good shout Alex, I haven't added Astebreed to my collection yet.

Re: Shmups

Oh, didn't catch that yet!

@Magical Isopod, I think that's pretty much it. For that 67ish, you'll get the most content rich 2D shooter I can think of and then you can expand on that further, if you like.

Re: Shmups

The new release is not Chronicle Saviors, but the final version of DariusBurst the arcade game + a HD re-release of G Darius. That means that the DariusBurst on this compilation doesn't have the huuuuuuuuge amount of extra 16:9 content that comes with CS, but it does come with all the timed challeng...

Re: Shmups

Hi Belmont03, that's great! Coincidentally, I just got a JP copy of Ikaruga for Dreamcast in. I never greatly clicked with it, but I can't help but admire that game's design ethos and it looks excellent on my B&O CRT, so maybe that motivates me to put more time into it... also, playing Gradius V...

Re: Games Completed 2021

Totally forgot to mention, I cleared Wonder Boy III on the SEGA Master System on February 9th... on the original hardware with the pause/inventory button on the console. Convenient!

Re: Shmups

Barely played it and had no idea the ROMs were that different. Will investigate! Also, damn shame that most of our 2D shooter enthusiasts don't check in very often again, because there are a lot of significant releases coming out these days! Just the upcoming month, we have... - Cotton Reboot - Dari...

Re: Games Completed 2020

A flurry of Splatterhouse and other retro activity at the start of the month! Having finally completed Fantasy Zone II W, I did also finally settle a long-standing internal debate about which game in that wonderful series is my favourite (and it’s this one)! At 510 hours and getting my final fish –...

Re: Games Completed 2020

27-12 The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Switch) Haven't had much time for playing games outside of streams (and even those I've had to cancel a lot), but I got a bit of time in over last weekend and finally managed to see the end of this one, which was my Christmas 2019 gift. 20 hours on the cl...

Re: Dungeons of Hydeland: Dragon Crown (Pro)

I like me a bit of Dragon's Crown. I have the original PS3 release. My PSN is Rotwyrm, it's just that I have precious little time to play much of anything and we live in different time zones, so I don't really foresee our stars aligning. :(

Re: All things Fire Emblem

Good stuff raisinbman. It's interesting how limited availability makes us go after things we otherwise might not have given a second look. There's no real reason for me to want a localised version of the original Fire Emblem, considering how I already have Shadow Dragon on the DS, but this whole thi...

Hey, I totally get it. :) And I'm sure in the not too distant future I'll be a happy PS5 owner. I feel like such an oddball outsider sometimes lol.

Re: Are you genuinely excited for Xbox Series X|S & PS5?

Really happy for everyone that's riding the wave of the new console releases and the launch period (and I'm going to let you finish), but I've got other video game related stuff I'm personally super excited about that eclipses any of that. That Series X and/or PS5 is going to be purchased, but I'm n...

Re: Super Mario Maker 2 - **1st Page For Community Level Codes**

This game is so great, I wish I'd been there when it was new. Found some amazing super worlds though, people have just made full Mario games to play, honestly some of the ones I've found are just as good as what Nintendo have made in the past. Currently playing through a brilliant Super Mario World...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Speaking of Capcom classics, I replayed Resident Evil 4. I played it once before, very slowly, years ago and I couldn't see what all the fuss was about. Now, with Resi 1, 2, 3, Veronica, and Zero under my belt, I feel like I'm seeing 4 through brand new eyes. Maybe not the "greatest game of al...
