    Tatsujin was the first ever game I saw and played running on an import megadrive in Microbyte in the Green Market (Newcastle). They had that and Strider... a transformative moment if ever there was one. In actual other shmup news: that flipping L3 Progear boss is an utter prick. He will be defeated soon* though. *if I don’t get distracted by something else.
  2. I do hope she has a gigantic pile of shame like the rest of us.
  3. Ive played mostly on tv with pro cont. However I had an hour or two on a Lite the other day and it was just as good, surprisingly.
  4. I had this: Tomy’s Space Turbo. It was fucking gash. It does look like it should be amazing though. it’s unsurprising that as an adult I have an obsession with arcade machines and plastic tat.
  5. I mean, reading back through the thread, there’s plenty of people who don’t love the game so don’t take my opinion as gospel. But it deffo gives me 1080 vibes in that it feels fun to handle and see what you can get away with, trying to find “short cuts” that usually end in me flying off a cliff. Please dont kill me if you hate it though. Edit: there is one other undeniable reason as to why it’s brilliant: flat shaded polys.

    No idea. I got the code cos I backed the Switch ver (which has been delayed due to Covid). Not selling it btw, for freebs if anyone from this shmup thread wants it (no piss takers though, ta).

  10. This game!!! Reminds me of 1080 (N64) in that it feels great pelting it and getting a nice line but you’re always on a knife edge.

    Heh, thanks. Was good to have something to fix up during lockdown. Getting off my face on aerosol fumes for two weeks was fun times... I can still hear the rattle cans. Been reading a decent guide that I noticed getting referenced in a couple of STG Weekly vids. It’s a guide on improving at shmups (specifically scoring). linky here for anyone who wants a look: https://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?t=34497

    It lives!!! (Was never in any doubt...) Lockdown refurb project mostly complete. Because every outhouse needs an arcade machine. Picked up an IGS PGM with the schnidey versions of Cave shooters. I wasn’t gonna pick up DDP DOJBL because I didn’t really love it when i had vanilla back on the PS2 however i’m a convert. Enjoying it a lot. Will be reviewing the runs that have been posted up thread to see if I can understand chaining a bit more.
  14. Theres a legacy mode in control options. Reverts it all to 3 buttons (attack to pick up items etc).
