Perhaps it's just developer laziness, there's no time to make different faces for 30+ enemies.

Or in the case of games with digitized actors, you only need to hire 1 guy.

Except Virtua Cop and Time Crisis are all 3D light gun games, and they have terrorists dressed in masks and sunglasses.

Speaking of Lethal Enforcers, who are these police officers you see on the flyer? You only see them in the end credits. Wikipedia says the male cop is Don Marshall and that he's a police officer from Chicago.

They're random Konami USA staff that apparently were photogenic enough that they took lots of pictures for the games. You see them in a very large number of the US Konami arcade flyers. At least the girl. The guy is probably on a dozen other ones too, but doesn't immediately bring any to mind.

Even to this day, I still assume they're actual characters from the game, seeing that they show up at the end credits. And I assume the male cop is Don Marshall since Wikipedia says so.

Are there any VS tourneys similar to EVO, except focused on non-fighting games? Like VS puzzle games or VS shmups? Is there anywhere you can find an active VS shmup tourney taking place (PoDD, PoFV, Change Air Blade, Senko no Ronde, etc)?

Also, I'd still appreciate knowing if a known Giga Wing 1CC without reflect exists.

The Puyo Puyo scene looks pretty active. Here are some upcoming tournaments.

There used to be Senko no Ronde events when that game was popular. G.rev had a page for them. You can also watch past matches on nico nico. There might still be tournaments somewhere, but that's all I got from google.

That ending was amazing beyond belief. Also the replay was crazy :shock:

Surprisingly enough, Catherine's VS mode has a presence at EVO itself as a side-tournament :

The game doesn't have online play though, so tourneys are local.

Thank you for this, this actually is really encouraging. That run gets to stage 5 with only 2 bombs in stock. With Shutock, I can reliably make it there with 5 bombs, sometimes NMNB to there. But stage 5 is where a no-reflect run really starts and I usually mess up and fail to bomb with bombs still in stock. Very impressive watching the last two bosses get taken down with no resources left, even if they get hit right before the TLB was beaten.

Does anyone here know about any scoring tricks in Batsugun that aren't listed in Randorama's ST? I'm trying to understand how the WR is over 27 million. I haven't tried savestating/invincibility-cheating my way through, but I'm pretty sure even if I got all the tricks I know, I'd still be off by a couple million points. The counterstops of Special ver. on Jaimers' YouTube channel and Replay Burners both reach 27-28 million in the first loop, but Special ver. scores higher on certain tricks and has more secret pigs. The only thing I can think of besides entirely new and unknown tricks is to somehow extend the Jupiter milk even longer and sacrifice more bombs and lives, but I'm guessing these counterstop runs cut off the milking when they do because the boss is about to time out. You might be able to start the milking pattern more quickly so you can squeeze in one or two more bombs...

Edit: I managed to get about 27.5 million (400k over the record) by spending every single life and bomb on Jupiter and performing every other score trick. So if you can find a way to dodge Jupiter's timeout pattern long enough to throw the rest of your resources into the milk...

Cool R-Type bastard son, but the slowdown and flicker is kinda offputting in the 2nd loop.

Anyone here successfully used a Dualshock 4 controller with the Ikaruga Steam port? Mine goes nuts (won't stop scrolling). Every other game I've check has worked without any issues, this is the final hurdle before I can retire my 360 controller.

Eh, not sure why native DS4 support is broken for Ikaruga, but DS4Windows still works fine. Goodbye, 360 controller.

If it's anything like all those NeoGeo hacks with "plus" tacked on the end, then it's cheats added.

For an extra hilarious title, see the hack of NeoGeo Strikers 1945 Plus, titled Strikers 1945 Plus Plus.

I remember seeing FACE on Nostradamus arcade, and Metal Stoker pc-engine (borderliner shmup but fun anyway).

FACE made that really weird albeit cool Hani in the Sky for the PC Engine.
Sadly the game has no scoring system whatsoever, what a loss...

I got another question for light gun games, but this mostly applies to the Operation Wolf series, the Lethal Enforcers series, the Virtua Cop series, and the Police 911 series. Why are there civilians constantly running around in the middle of a gunfight? Do they WANT to get shot?

Because it provides the challenge of giving you targets that you're not supposed to shoot.

I still can't help but think the hostages must be too stupid to be running in the middle of a shootout. Well, unless they were held at their will and had to escape before they'd get shot. At least Time Crisis isn't like this, unless you're playing the Rescue Mission mode of the third game.

Anyone that knows Japanese, and plays Castle of Shikigami, can anyone tell me what's going on here? Is Kohtaro quizzing you on what kind of game or something? Or teaching you how to play? I know he's saying something about a game, but I don't know if he's breaking the fourth wall or something.

Looking for some recommendations!

I'm looking for a game that is:
  • Fast-paced
  • Not particularly difficult (by which I mean not much harder than the more challenging Psikyo or CAVE 1-ALLs)
  • Minimal reliance on reactions/on-the-fly dodging as opposed to planning/memorization (so minimal RNG)

Dragon Blaze is a good example, except the second loop is harder than what I'm willing to sign up for at the moment and I've already played the first loop to death. I'm also planning on taking Gunbird 2 and Strikers 1999 out for a spin tonight since I haven't gotten a 1-ALL in either yet.

What kind of answer are you hoping to get for this?

Well, it's because I was playing Police 911 on my PS2 (with a controller and not a gun peripheral) and I'm constantly getting annoyed at accidentally shooting at the bystanders running around or the officers that's standing in my way.
