Ghost Blade seems OK in a DDP tribute way, but there i's too much shit on screen, and pink bullets on pink and purple backdrops is not cool.

Since my CRT were my Mega Drive is set up is out of action (don't ask), I hooked up a stick to my J360 and went back to some stuff I got ages ago but never really dug into properly.

Caladrius is one of them. Clearly I slept on this one. Didn't really click on release, but it is now - scoring is really fun and tied directly to varying your three magic shot types, love it. The bosses are kicking my arse!

Bullet Soul Infinite Burst got some time as well, but I'm going to go against popular opinion here and say I prefer the original system (or Normal Mode as it's called in BS:IB).

Still wading through Toaplan's library.

- Dogyuun - Awesome. Can't think of a single issue I have with it. Weapons could been a bit more varied?

- Truxton 2 - So much potential here, but the stage length makes it a chore to play. It would have benefited from breaking the stages up into more stages and shaving off about 15 minutes of play time.

- V-V - This is getting the most play time currently. Wish the sound effects were a bit meatier, but enemy placement and design, length, power up system, and difficulty are on point. Tight effort.

Really looking forward to Pieslice's Crisis Wing.

The one thing I dislike about it is the waypoint system, when you respawn there instead of instantly where you died.

Ghost Blade HD (digital; PS4). Going for a 1cc Normal completion because it's a fairly easy game and seems like a good one to attempt my first 1cc.

Since posting this on the 15th, I've doubled my score from 1.02 billion to 2.1 billion, landing me in the top 25 on the Normal leaderboards. I can get to stage 5 on a regular basis but can't quite clinch the 1cc victory. I don't think there's anything special to do: just need to take a break from 1cc attempts, practice individual levels/bosses a bit more, and then get back to attempting the 1cc run.
