:lol: feel free to whitewash that lot, dear me, I'm so, so sorry.
If I need emotional support in future I'll email Stanshall directly (Just kidding, I felt his heart skipping a beat there!)

You're a saint and a gentleman. Genuinely surprised I can still log in! I need to remember that it's a privilege to post here, it's not just some place to spill my head. I'm contributing to a community, not shitting in the doorways. Right, cold shower, comb my hair all nice and flat, school photo.

If we would live near to each other I’d swing by and give you a hug. ❤️

I also want it to be (remain) a supportive social space clippa, so don’t even worry about it.

Aw man, y'all are absolute, utter darling! I'd cuddle every last one of you too hard until your heads popped off!
I feel like such a ninny. Normal service will resume shortly :lol:

Clips, hope you're doing OK and not having too rough a day. This is a good place and a great crew and it doesn't all need to be about point blanking beetles. All the best with everything.

Thank you! I feel like I don't deserve such patience and understanding, but I'm so grateful! My poor dog is looking at me wondering why we haven't gone to the woods yet. Drink down the sink, fucking poison.

Woah, what the hell? Looks like Platine Dispositif has fallen out with their publisher. Might just be a publicity stunt but if you're interested in owning their games on steam, might be worth picking them up now - https://store.steampowered.com/search/? ... Dispositif

Footage of the vasara collection, linked to by that gosokkyu guy - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d07TENHBKHQ&t=23m4s

along with some interesting info
btw, that not-a-Direct video was put together by Brazilian Nintendo devs, not just to highlight Brazilian-made/involved games but to rally for more targeted local support from Nintendo, particularly PT-BR localizations and better & more accommodating support for local indies
That's it, but two big boxes full of gurning tits over the top so I can't bloody see. That 16:9 mode looks pretty smelly, they haven't changed the ship speed to accommodate for it, I don't think, unless it's designed to be played 2 player :|

Are those first 3 worth playing / not too creepy?

I've only played gundemonium recollection to be honest, I didn't quite get on with the others, but I'll no doubt try again in the future.
Hitogata Happa is said to be very unique and hard as nails. There's demos there to try anyway.

No, they're not creepy, I don't think, they stay on the right side of cutesy, I'd say.

Okay, thanks for the clarification. I'm tempted to grab them just in case they become unavailable later on.

Btw, isn't the first Gundemonium the same game you recommended yesterday on Vita? That one was €15 instead of €4. Why the massive price difference, do you know?

It was a tarted up version for the ps4 and vita, you can read about the differences here.
GUNDEMONIUMS is based on the side-scrolling shoot-em-up “GUNDEMONIUM” (2003) released by PlatineDispositif and its remake version “GUNDEMONIUM Re:Collection” (2007). GUNDEMONIUMS is a rebuilt version with a lot of improvements and new features!

Rebuilt and improved version of the bullet-hell classic!
New player character
New game system
New enemy
and other improvements
and other improvements! I can't compare as I haven't played that version. Might be worth watching the bullet heaven review, I'd imagine they'd cover all the differences.

Okay, I bought the triple pack on Steam. Price was very reasonable, it includes two more games than the PS4 version and there is a chance it might get delisted soon. Thanks for the heads-up!

No bother, man!
I can feel my chest tightening, something tells me you didn't try the demos first to make sure everything worked on your haunted laptop. I'm not gonna come back to a room full of feathers and angry flapping, am I?

Tested all three, they all run perfectly well. Except for the inability to use the triggers yet again because reasons.

Games seem fun, character design remains tolerable, money well spent.

I assume these chest contractions of yours must be basic withdrawal symptoms. One week on a strict diet of steamed broccoli, olive oil grissini and clean water to help your body get rid of all the garbage toxins and you'll be a new man. Your faithful dog will be overjoyed and look at you with renewed love and admiration.

Fluffy lumps is on my lap right now getting a cuddle. Gonna walk her legs off tomorrow and give her a big lump of chicken to make up for it.

Steam page is up for the Vasara collection

Says available 13th august when you hover over it in the search results, but it just says coming soon on the store page, so I don't know if that dates accurate.

Coming to all the consoles too, Switch, PS4, PSVita, Xbox One.
