Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Actually, I remember now, there was a big thing made about it at the time, you were either a nexhead or a cuphead. It was like the big rivalry between the stones and the beatles, you were either a mod or a rocker, blur vs oasis, sony vs microsoft, you were either a gregghead or a timhead. I remembe...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I'd say it's about 7:2 ratio of bosses to R&G. I think it's enjoyable taken entirely on its own term but pretty singular and unforgiving.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

After about 30mins of playing, I have concluded that Cuphead is not a game for me. If I could give one piece of advice it would be to buy the Chaser homing weapon. It means you can just focus on dodging, etc. I bounced off the game many time on the XB until someone suggested this and it gave me a w...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been romping through the first couple of islands on Cuphead after dragging myself through the first one in about eighteen months on the Xbox. I went back to it last month, basically, and found that my habit of playing lots of shmups had helped me get into the 'memorise and execute' mindset whic...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

There have been lots of games that unlocked at midnight, honestly, not just first party. I don't really mind but I find it a bit cheeky when only a privileged selection of games is given the preorder treatment for it to not even be available at 2pm when the store updates, never mind midnight. Anyway...

I read that it'll be 5pm BST as it's a 9am PST release. Kind of irked that they were very happy to take my preorder dough while releasing the game three hours later than everything else on the eShop...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Fair enough. We might be covering old ground as I'm more of a bullet hell kind of guy but I'm starting to try to get into some of those via various means. Konami Collection released today, lots of Gradius type of things on there and quite enjoying it so far. I'm sure there's an Einhander high score ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

It made it onto the shmups forum's top 25 games of all time this year, so I guess it's doing OK. The lazy shorthand is that it's 'the Undertale of shmups'. I'm looking forward to it coming to Switch, definitely.

Re: Shmups

No worries and fingers crossed it comes soon. The game deserves a lot more attention. The dev is pretty active on Twitter and he replies to people regularly saying it's coming at some point.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've not played it myself but not heard of any common problems or complaints with ZeroRanger at all. I did some searching and it seems that turning VSync on in the options will resolve the black screen issue. Good luck!

Re: Shmups

It would cost you £26, but I'll explain the process. It's not that complicated. There are a couple of ways but I'll put this in a spoiler because it's off topic. 1. The most straightforward method is to set up a second Japanese account on your Switch. You can't use your UK card so you have to buy Ja...

Re: Shmups

I'm after a decent schmup for the Switch. Being a n00b (or rather just unskilled) I'm a bit hesitant. So far I've looked at Danmaku Unlimited 3, which looks cool. Also R-Type Dimensions EX. I think I'd prefer a horizontal one but as long as it's not too difficult I'll consider anything really. Woul...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I thought Cuphead would have been a midnight unlock considering the profile, etc. It'll be a 2pm job now, I reckon.

Re: Retro gaming

I did start reading but all them shmups have battered my attention span, honest. Can barely concentrate on anything for more than a couple of seconds unless it's spewing medals at me.

PS: "Lacrimosa of Danish" sounds like a very salty pastry.

I'd also recommend MP3 over anything else on the list.

I have to say, Sensi still plays like a bloody dream. Pure feel. Gu Wang is not my fave, but I appreciate it's doing something different.

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Even if nobody actually uses BC, it seems to have a significant word of mouth/goodwill factor. I got Gu Wang on the XB1X but the only thing I actually ever play on BC is Sensi.
