Re: Shmups

…That Sisters Royale that Stanshall was talking about is coming to ps4, xbox January 30th next year and pc "later", looks alright to me. Was planning to buy it "when I have a bit of time" so of course I ended up not buying it :P (predictable eh?) I really like the colors and art direction in genera...

Re: Retro gaming

Mole Mania So I've been playing a bit of Mole Mania on the GameBoy recently. … I played it too (on 3DS, would have preferred it on a cart/GBA but got it from eShop in the end) and it is pretty good! Burrowing through the ground is indeed great fun! Admittedly it doesn't add that much to the game bu...

Re: Shameless Self Promotion

I took a look, but stopped watching after the 3rd ad in first less than ten minutes (around one ad per 3 minutes, no thanks). Anyway, what I managed to see was not bad at all. I felt the quick cuts (near the beginning, where you talk about other games) are too fast / abrupt.

Re: Shmups

Ray, your avatar looks like a little cock and balls all dressed up. What the hell is it? Ha ha not really. I was copying somebody's (can't remember who was it) drawing (who was in turn I think copying Moebius), maybe if you see it bigger it won't trigger such associations: https://imgur.com/f46r7Ae...

Re: Shmups

As an aside, I think I'd really enjoy a scrolling twin stick shooter. Does such a thing exist? Did Guardian Force (Arcade / Saturn) use a separate controller for shooting? If so then I guess it'd qualify. Maybe Cannon Spike? (Can't remember which control scheme that one used.) There are quite a few...

Re: Shmups

LOL, I paid 15 for the eShop version and quite like it. It's very much a slow paced, strategic, player controlled scrolling affair and while I'm not necessarily the greatest fan of the card deck power-up system, it is kind of interesting. You get these funny moments where you burn through a few car...

Re: Shmups

Any of yallz played Iuchi’s Kokuga on 3DS? Whaddyamean, no? I did. It is really, really bafflingly bad. Hard to say what exactly makes it so because it's a case of "lots of small things" and how they interact. I don't mind the weird level selection system, the slow tank movement, the abstract graph...

Re: Explain your user name and avatar

My name is Ray, simple enough. Current profile image is something I drew a long time ago while practicing. I think I copied somebody who was in turn probably trying to copy Moebius – something like that, it was a long time ago and I have a few notebooks of these things so it's hard to remember exact...
