Fine, fine purchases. GA is actually one of my top favorite arcade style games. Heavy metal berserker action. Enjoy.

Greenmangaming is doing their Black Friday thing this week. They've got a number of shmups in their sale, such as Valkyrius Prime, Wolflame, The Tale of Altynex (can buy the individual games too), Ether Vapor Remaster and more.

I did look at that in the sale but I remembered hearing that the port/emulation was really shabby so I held off. Is that not the case?

I don't know, but I took the risk anyway. The price is very good.

It's dotemu so chances are it's garbage. I'll never support them for the past history anyway.

I got the Steam version of TSS for free since I already bought the humble SNK bundle. Framerate is around 55-57 and internet play is laggy.

Yeah, in my experience, the TSS steam port was piss on release since the slowdown wasn't included, later on, its now included, so its salvageable (in short, it works fine). Not much options in the steam port either (not even a separate button for auto fire like the AES and most ports had, since you know, its going to hurt your fingers unless your controller has a dedicated auto-fire button, though at the possible risk of not using the charge shots), but other than that, there's sound issues like some (if not most) Dotemu ports, but the online versus is fine, unless you're playing someone closer to your region then someone far.

Thanks all, my money's staying in my pocket. I'll stick with the mame version.
I was going to pick up the three metal slug games that were on there as well during the sale but a quick google says that they're all really badly emulated too. DotEmu again.

Caladrius on sale for about $6 and change (and/or regional equivalent) on X360 digitally. Sale period: 12/15/16 - 1/4/17

Raiden V on X1 digitally also on sale (or rather, price change?) $50 -> $30US (also regional equivalent, though yeah, it was $25 before once from a previous sale.)

Caladrius Blaze (JP PSN) is also part of this sale too. Sale period: 12/15/16 - 1/10/17 (Though there's already the superior PS4 version anyways.)

Since I am not a Gold Member I could take advantage of the Caladrius on X360 deal. How is the game and how is the X360 version compared to others?

Its fairly good, since it usually makes most of the Elemental Shot system, and the gothic horror theme.

You start with 3 characters, 1 unlockable, and 2 are DLC (though they are cheap, lol.), each has their own elemental shots and stuff. And the game is fine tuned to to use E-S's to accute the scoring system.

Either way, the 360 version is already for an entry way version. (Though Caladrius Blaze on the PS3/PS4 is a better version with 2 more characters and some extra stages.) Though as mentioned before in the forum, the digital overseas English release of Caladrius for X360 is toned down on its fanservice and stuff. But not really a problem.

Regardless, its alright.

Xmas Shooting - Scramble!! launched on Steam today and has a 10% off launch deal. It looks very similar to QP Shooting - Dangerous!!, which is from the same developers and takes place in the same universe. It also comes with a bonus character for 100% Orange Juice, which is how I heard of this game.

The original QP Shooting also had a xmas-themed spin-off, kinda like Touhou's extra stages added to the game. So I suppose this is indeed a side story for Dangerous!!. EDIT: Yeah, just read 3 stages only, so it is a similar extension.
