Michiel, I have never heard of this Kickle Cubicle game!
It's a port of an Irem arcade game, no less! I remember the screenshots of the NES game looking very appealing and always meant to buy it, but only got around to it this year.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Apart from games for the podcast, I've been chipping away at Kickle Cubicle on the NES. What a lovely, addictive little game that is. Yesterday I played through one and a half worlds, passing the controller around with a friend. His words: "This should be covered on Cane and Rinse stat."

Both FE: Three Houses and Astral Chain are already out this summer? Going to be expensive months.

Re: Shmups

Playing a new game, figuring out the mechanics and finding your own strategies and stuff, that's half the fun, surely! Using save states to practise the bits you're not good at. I mean, it makes sense if you're going for a world record and you want to save time, but it just sounds like homework to ...

My Ketsui & Co. are still stuck in customs for some inscrutable reason, but I managed to grab myself a physical copy of Mushihimesama Futari in the meantime.

Now that is a video game. :o
You're goddamn right.

Is this any good to you? Wouldn't be cheap to buy both but you can combine it with the universal fighting board to make your stick compatible with modern systems too - https://arcadeshock.com/products/brook-retro-board.
Heyyyy thanks. That seems worth pursuing.

Re: Games Completed 2019

I just found that there a bunch of small things that, together, kept me from enjoying it. It's a very different take on tactics rpg than I'm used to, but I think if those annoyances were cleaned up, I'd have been in a better mood. Unfortunately, it looks like a lot of the things I didn't like stay ...

Re: Void B*stards - got a question or two

^^^^ From what I've seen, you need to treat the combat in this game like an RPG dice roll system, as visible projectiles can't physically be avoided and hit probability and damage are based on stats and RNG. Don't know how I feel about that yet, but yeah... more RPG-like in the vein of System Shock ...

Re: Shmups

A friend once connected his Madcatz SFIV TE stick to my 360 and I tried to play Mushi Futari with it. Took some adjusting, alright!

Loving the excitement.

Re: Shmups

And yeah, very much enjoyed those vids, Michiel. An audacious attempt to talk and play! If my missus comes in when I'm into a decent run on Futari, I either die or devolve into snippy grunts and cop a bollocking. LOL yeah. It seemed like quite a feat at the time, but watching Ben C merrily chat his...

Re: Retro gaming

^^^^ Great stuff. The game is a dud, but that Castlevania The Adventure boxart is as hype as hype gets.
