Re: Shmups

That better not have been a passive aggressive "buddy". I've got my eye on you, owly. No, of course not. It just sounds to me like your method leads to a lot of gratuitous stress and frustration, so that would have been the obvious solution to me. Then again, I seem to approach things from a much m...

Re: Shmups

Every time I play, I play from the beginning until I die. I think I've said it before but it's obviously not the most efficient way to learn a game. What I end up doing is getting to be absolute boss at the first couple of stages, though maybe not as good as Stanshall, and then mostly having to jus...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I showed my mate the two Metal Wolf Chaos trailers earlier today and this turned into the biggest laugh I've had in weeks. That game's humor and presentation style seems like it's completely up my alley and I can't wait to dive headfirst into it as soon as I'm done dodging pink detritus. :P

Re: Shmups

:(

You were even ahead of my previous record in terms of raw scoring at that point! Very sorry, man. I've died multiple times at those giant penultimate ships and it's the worst feeling in the world.

Have you turned WAIT back on, at least? I couldn't tell from the footage.

Anyway, don't give up!

ketsuipachi mode?
Is that "black label arrange" mode?
Yes, it is!

It's a version of DDPR BL that incorporates a number of elements from Ketsui. Really cool stuff. :)

Re: Shmups

When we play DDPR, can we do that ketsuipachi mode? We'd both be fresh to that and I'd like to get into it. https://us.123rf.com/450wm/tigatelu/tigatelu1905/tigatelu190500147/123719651-vector-illustration-of-cartoon-owl-giving-thumbs-up.jpg?ver=6 Totally cool with me, that mode looks dope and I'd l...

Re: Shmups

Sorry, I meant what style? Or have you not decided yet? ...That was my way of very subtly suggesting we stay on BWRP for now, because that's the exact score you were proudly declaring was going to "get smashed" two weeks ago. :P After that, we'll both go see what DDPR has in store for us. Deal? :?:

Re: Shmups

I'll have to experiment the next time I fire it up. Please do. I'd be interested to hear a second opinion on whether or not the fire style influences the enemy behavior / aggressiveness or not. And btw, I think the in-game flavor text specifically describes Bomb Style as being "good for beginners" ...

Re: Shmups

Make sure you're playing "strong" mode when you choose your ship. That's like autobomb mode. Bomb Style has auto-bomb too, though. And even Power Style has the option if you can find and keep a bomb in storage. More here: http://www.slateman.net/faqs/ddp4.txt And here: https://cavedb.com/reviews/do...

Re: Shmups

I think it was on Novice mode but damn if that's novice I'd hate to see Expert :D I think it's important to note that DDP handles difficulty a bit differently than other games. I don't think there is any dedicated "Expert" mode but there are noticeable changes in enemy / bullet patterns depending o...

Re: Spelunky

Don't want to talk about it. Look at the bright side: It appears as if Derek Yu cares more about the quality of his finished product and/or the well-being of his employees than about following arbitrary deadlines.

Oof. That's rough, man. I've noticed how distant you can sometimes be in the past, but I had absolutely no idea there was such a tragic reason for it. Very sorry to hear you had to go through that. You're among friends here, mate. :) ...Would it be okay if some deranged bastard were to secretly down...

Re: Shmups

I'll co-sign pretty much everything Stan just wrote. I think the two of us are approaching these games in a very similar fashion. I didn't think that was an argument. It's all right, man. The jokes aren't inherently a problem. But sometimes it feels like my point is falling on deaf ears and I find t...

Come on! :mrgreen: It's fine, I probably overreacted in retrospect. I just don't like being accused of lying and cheating for no reason whatsoever and I find it pretty frustrating to try to carefully explain something only to be met with silly non sequiturs in rapid succession. I wanted to engage w...

Re: Shmups

My big warty rectum prolapse score still stands, I've decided, you've more or less admitted to cheating. I haven't watched any video in weeks and I've instead dedicated the lion's share of my free time towards fine-tuning my runs of this game so that you and I can have the friendly competition that...
