Re: Super Mario Maker 2 - **1st Page For Community Level Codes**

SMM2 arrived today. Played through the first 20 levels of Story Mode, and followed everyone who's got a level listed in the first post. dezm0nd has already had to remind me to read the damned instructions before playing each level, because I'm an eejit. Also already come up against several levels th...

Best shmups on Vita / 3DS?
I really enjoyed Sine Mora on my Vita. It's been on a load of other platforms too though (not 3DS, as it happens), so you may have played it elsewhere.

Re: Super Mario Maker 2 - **1st Page For Community Level Codes**

I've ordered this today. I honestly expect to be awful at making levels, but am willing to give it a go. :mrgreen: Thanks so much Suits for creating this thread, and everyone else in here for contributing; it's great to have a ready-made list of CaR community levels to try (and fail miserably at). :...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Looking back at mine there are a few suspect choices, and I also blatantly cheated by including Sonic Jam and The Orange Box as single listings! It's your list. I think compilations are fine, personally. The Orange Box was the first time I played both Half-Life 2 and Episode 1, so it's kinda weird ...

Re: Shmups

Yeah, I think you're fine with that, clippa.
I sent upwards of a dozen Tweets to TT Games and Warner Bros, asking for LEGO Harry Potter Collection on Xbox One. That's demanding. ;-)

Still chipping away at my top 50. At the moment there are still 70 games on the list, and it's starting to get brutal.

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 lookin...

Re: Shmups

I would very much disagree with that, personally. Like Stan said, shmups are almost uniquely ill-suited to speedruns among all the different genres. Apologies, I wasn't clear. I don't mean that shmups should be speedrun, but that competitively they are leaderboard-driven, asynchronous affairs in th...

Re: Shmups

I'd be interested to know how you all feel about high score/leaderboard battles as compared to head-to-head competition. Several folks here might be able to discuss world records or personal high score battles in shmups or other games that use high scores as a barometer. But for a wider audience it ...

I'm going purely on the blog post, so apologies if my unfamiliarity with Mark MSX or the other channels he mentions renders any of the following invalid. Obviously Mark's disappointed, but I think there are other ways to look at the situation. Plenty of people stream or produce video/audio for audie...

Re: Detroit: Become Human

I played a couple of hours last week too, and I'm also enjoying it, oddly enough. Completely agree that it's heavy handed, but in much the same way as I felt Heavy Rain was. A couple of weeks back I tried Beyond and was completely turned off by the controls and the way scenes were playing out, right...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron . Excellent name and cult status aside, this is a very pretty, but very simplistic Bayonetta type thing. I can imagine feeling like it was something special ten years ago or something but the form has been superceded several times over by better games. Perhaps ...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Looks like you chose to treat Dark Souls and Bloodborne as the same series. I guess the only thing that keeps me from having a BOTW/ALTTP conundrum with those is that I treat them separately. Showing, I guess, that I'm willing to make distinctions when the mood takes me. I guess ALTTP and BOTW are b...

Re: Teppen (New Capcom card game)

My thinking exactly. Never been tempted by card games before, but like Marvel with Puzzle Quest, the characters here will get me through the door. Time will tell if the game holds my interest.

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Fear not, clippa. This is largely about how the games hit me when I played them. Your Mario Kart DS reasoning is much the same as mine for why 6 Golden Coins is my Mario inclusion. I'd struggle to say it's 'better' than many other Mario games, but it means the most to me, and so is my favourite. I'v...
