  1. spatular


    been playing some dodonpachi sdoj, wanted to play it last year but couldn't find it, it's great fun but really difficult, well i've been mostly playing novice and 360 modes which are a lot easier but still really difficult. don't think i'll 1cc any of the modes, can get to the last boss part on the 360 mode with the easy mode ship but then there's ~4? bosses that kick my ass! cool that swag is coming out here, looked at importing it but wasn't convinced by footage that it was worth the high price, will definitely give it a go for £15.
  2. i'm sort of glad the weekly rewards are rubbish as it makes me care about doing the challenges less. which is probably a good thing.
  3. dallas up front. no problem.
  4. Its a new year sale, the lambo is half price!

    there was some fighting game event thing and they had a live dodonpachi doj score attack competition between 2 top players, sps and fufufu, it's really impressive
  6. project cars 3 was not what project cars fans wanted, it's more like driveclub and pgr, i thought it was great. zelda - age of calamity - first time i've playes a dynasty warriors style game and it was a lot of fun.
  7. also no. try dodonpachi dai ou jou or ketsui or something.

    ^ nice work! that boss is really hard imo, i've never got past it anyway. despite getting loads of (sort of)new shmups recently i've been playing deathsmiles which i've already played loads in the past. really enjoying it though, the mbl 1.1 mode where you control the option with a stick is nuts, screen is constantly full of stuff to collect. got some 1cc's on different modes, including with one of the dlc characters, the green one with the hammer - seems pretty strong and plays pretty similar to the others. tried some of the other dlc characters too, the one that fires white shots - the focus shot fires a really wide shot but not forward, and locks the familiar in position on the screen, so that one plays pretty interestingly. the one with the penguin is too slow. one fires purple bullets which is pretty stupid as it really hurts visibility. the one with the fire seems pretty good. don't think any of them are as powerful as rosa in the main game, or as the one with 2 familiars in mbl.

    good info! Yeah apparently so, i did it last night but was doing so badly otherwise i didnt really pay attention to how much health it was. Its not so bad without the suicide bullets but can see why you’d do a different order if youre activating the suicide bullets.

    i agree esp.ra.de looks great, especially the backgrounds - i have an opinion about this rather than any actual info, i think it's partially to do with visibility, later stuff has more bland backgrounds which helps with bullet visibility.

    Not played deathsmiles in ages, been accidentally activating the suicide bullet mode, need to remember to pick rank 2 twice to avoid that. Cant remember stage order to get life items so looked it up http://cave-stg.com/forum/index.php?topic=281.0 so basically do volcano at rank 3 last (6th) and 4th choice pick either graveyard rank 3 or swamp rank 2. Or volcano and swamp the other way around but sounds like that doesnt give as much health.
  14. thanks for the link! shame it's showing out of stock
