That's cool! I'm a big fan of TMNT Tournament Fighters.

Re: Returnal

Game looks really fun and interesting. You have to give it to Housemarque. A priority buy for when I get a PS5!

I tried playing a bit of R-Type Final 2, but really... I only seem to have time to play the game me and my friends are making these days.

Re: Golden Axe (Or Golden Ayxe in The Netherlands)

I could teach anyone on this forum. If I had a few hours with them on a 1-1 basis, how to beat Golden Axe without dying. Trust me. We can all get these clears. Thanks for checking this out my friends. I'm very happy with it. No expense spared with the coloured lighting when I changed characters hah...

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...

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!

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: 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...

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...
