Re: Shmups

Making some progress in UN Squadron. Some of the bosses have very annoying, twitchy and randomised patterns, but I'm getting there. There is a lot of variety and that's great. Also been getting into Fantasy Zone and its offshoots for the VW podcast. How come I only found out about this existing last...

Re: All things Mega Man

Haven't played anything Mega Man recently, but my boy's been loving Mega Man 11 on the Switch and has been telling me all about it and his strats to get through the game. <3

Spent some time agonising about whether or not that makes me a Fake Gamer, but then remembered that I'm 32 years old. Now I've finished it up and moving on.
Just makes you someone that demands more engagement of your games than getting simple busywork, in my book. :P

That wasn't my night in Gradius, but I at least got this moment.

Re: Shmups

Been trying to get into UN Squadron on the SNES a tiny bit, recently. Adjusting from 50 to 60Hz is a bigger step than I thought and so far I'm pretty bad at the game, compared to way back when. I'll keep at it. Maybe I should pick Gregg to start with.

Re: Games Completed 2020

I actually completed a game after a long time!

17 - 3 Yakuza 2 (PS2)

Massive spoilers in video, obviously.

Re: Let's have a thread about the virus, then. We might as well.

They've closed the schools here now as well. We're getting teaching materials sent home. I'm lucky enough that I can work from home and look after the kids, but my heart goes out to those in a tougher situation. Thanks for starting this thread, Alex. Been good reading these perspectives. And Stansha...

Let's see if it's still possible with the coronavirus situation. Supposed to leave by the second week of April.

Re: Shmups

So how about that Detana!! TwinBee, huh? Been on that on the TwinBee Deluxe pack on the SEGA Saturn and it's SUCH a joy to play. I played the PC Engine port on the Wii Virtual Console before I got this disc, so I'm still getting accustomed to the difficulty increase. Haven't been able to crack the s...

Nice haul, Suits. Have been holding back recently as I'm saving my funds for my trip to Japan in April.

I have a friend who used to deal in video games. Pirated ones. Mentioned him twice or thrice on the podcasts we did on the PS1 Resi games.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Hmm, weird. Whenever I see it come up in the speedrunning community everyone seems to have nothing but nice things to say about it. Interesting. I don’t really follow the speedrunning community, but it would make sense and match with my own experience that people that engage with games on a deeper ...

Re: Shameless Self Promotion

^^^^ Good point, Alex. Yeah I tried exporting at a lower bitrate (from 192 kbps to 128) initially, but it makes the music in the podcast sound a lot more tinny. I use my video editing software (Filmora) to edit these and even with videos, the files it puts out are rather heavy. Maybe I can do the sa...
