Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

That The Evil Within game is quite gory and disgusting, isn't it? Playing through it with my main horror game playing buddy and we're having a good time. It's rough around the edges, but still compelling enough. It shows glimpses of something akin to the Super Mario Galaxy of horror themed action ad...

Re: Shmups

Maybe you're playing too well and the rank is bighting you on the backside? You could take a leaf out of Stanshall's book and play it smart/cowardly, gaming the rank system. You could always use the wrong type of shot rather than the right one, stay far away from enemies and try not to pick up gems...

12-7 - Kickle Cubicle (NES)

What a fun little game. THEE (sort of) discovery of 2019 for me, so far. I've unlocked the extra expert levels and wrote the password down, so I'm still not done with this inventive arcade action puzzler.

Re: Shmups

I’m inching closer on Futari BL Original, but it’s so hard to get consistent runs for me. Sometimes I feel like the better I become and the more knowledge I gain about the game, the worse I start playing. A false sense of confidence makes me die in parts that I absolutely shouldn’t die in, flying in...

But I got on the PS3 train very late, so I don't have much of a collection for it. It's not the multiplatform workhorse like the 360 was for me.
I'm very much the same. I got mine a couple of years after the end of its official shelf life, mainly for the exclusives.

Re: Shmups

When I hear 'shmup' I instantly think of Cave and Treasure games, or those aping them directly. A game like Cuphead, one of the most-discussed, and most-lauded games of recent years, I almost never hear being discussed as a 2D shooter or shmup. Similar thing for twin-stick shooters; maybe I'm looki...

I did manage to talk a few 3DS owning people into some Kokuga multiplayer sessions and it was good times indeed! :P

Any of yallz played Iuchi’s Kokuga on 3DS? Whaddyamean, no? I never even knew this was a thing! Clearly, I'm way behind on my Treasure news... :oops: I'm kinda curious to try it out for myself now, despite the mixed response it has apparently received. eShop price is €15, I think I could just roll ...

Re: Shmups

When I’m back at a keyboard I’ll give my musings on why I think shmups in particular (of the ancient genres) tend to really struggle these days. I'm thinking about this and I'm starting to lean to the idea that the genre of the 2D shooter will never become as big as some of its fans would want to, ...

Re: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I quite like the adventurous feeling of riding a horse in Breath of the Wild, especially into uncharted regions. So I did a lot of it, until my map was fully charted and then yes... I proceeded with a lot more teleporting and more intense exploring off the paths. But even still, sometimes I just lik...

Re: Donkey Kong - Cane and Rinse 375

Ah yes, I remember now. I read that book too, years ago. I think the book also suggests that this move is what propelled Lincoln to the position he would come to enjoy at NoA.
