    Cheers guys. Has to be cheap and cheerful I’m afraid. Went for an LG something or other. (24GN600) Its meant for work primarily as a second screen but obvs it wouldn’t hurt to be able to use it for some shmup action if I fancied it.

    Not massive, probs around the 24” size. I expect I’ll probs want to tate it (for long spreadsheets…).

    Does anyone have any decent cheapish recommendations for a PC monitor (to use for retro emulation and actually, thinking about it, some indie PC shooters, in light of all the recommendations that come up in here)? I have to get a second screen for work so it makes sense to get one that can also work well with the odd shmup “on lunch”, ahem…

    Picked up Gunlock (aka RaySomething, Layer Section, Galactic Attack) at the same time as Darius Gaiden and goddam Taito osts were the (smart) bomb back then! I’m guessing it was Zuntata? the game is alright too...

    Cheers! I’ll have a read and a watch ta! I do like Gaiden’s style and it’s almost worth putting the time in just for the music.

    While we’re talking Darius, got hold of Darius Gaiden. Only given it a few mins but what makes me bounce off it a bit is the first level and a half seem pretty easy but also there seems to be a lack of feedback with shots etc. What do the coloured shields mean (appreciate they’re power ups). Are there any decent guides knocking around?
  8. Is there not an actual Bubble Bobble version? In “Mini” repro related guff, I’d love the Arcade1Up OutRun. Hoping they start supplying the UK soon.

    Got some schnidey F3 conversions inbound. Gunlock and Darius Gaiden. Hoping to try and get into understanding the allure of Darius. Though it would be easier if I hadn’t sliced my thumb open trying to remove a control panel overlay. Edit: removed the gore. At least the result was pretty sweet imo:
  10. i think there’s still a chance you’ll get those as the full list hasn’t been announced I don’t think. You’d expect some sweet Taito (and by extension Toaplan) shooter goodness on there to take advantage of the rotatable screen. edit: flip knows why the Astro mini doesn’t have the same 4:3 screen as this (they both look to be from the same manufacturer). Wonder if it’s possible to get a 4:3 screen to put in the Astro. (Though I guess that would screw the emulation).
  11. I possibly wouldn’t hold your breathe on them getting a UK release. I know the Astro City is coming but its £50 more expensive than if you got one from Amazon Japan (with taxes prepaid and shipping included). This is roughly £150 inc shipping and taxes. Admittedly very niche. Admittedly expensive but it is a cool little trinket.
