I wonder if some versions of Fatty Glutton are easier than others. I suspect that is so, but I'm not sure. Congrats on the clear.

Maybe the replay is a future episode of STGWeekly? :P

Watching it, I had to smile at the quick realization of how you had fucked yourself over with the Fatty Glutton fight. That you managed to pull it off is worthy of praise. As the IRC said, that was one hell of a game of chicken.

Likewise, the final boss gave you a run for your money, though by the time you have the wave cannon, if you haven't lost too many lives you can just sort of outlive any final boss. Still, an exciting clear!

Top route isn't easy actually, it's stupid hard and ends with Great Thing. The easy route is X route. I see you took out Fatty with the laser, that's hardcore man congrats. That's actually what makes the top course clear so difficult; if you don't kill Fatty with the laser to upgrade to wave, you just simply can't survive stage P.

As for some versions of Fatty being easier, I'm pretty sure that's the case yeah. Fatty-G in Z course fires way more quickly than the Fatty in X course does (not that it matters in X course since you don't need to upgrade to laser anyhow).

Darius - MAME
& Aquas & 4,231,060 & ALL & ACFJNTY & On

Twitch highlight: http://www.twitch.tv/aquas_/c/3845979

Thanks for the congrats ACSeraph and EmperorIng. I played some more tonight, but this time not fighting Fatty Glutton with the laser and roughing it out with the original shot for the rest of the game. In the above run I kill Cuttlefish with the level 1 power. Hype!

Then I did an all-down route and managed the 1cc as well, beat Strong Shell with a sliver of shield and level 2 base power. Fun stuff:

Darius Plus is down! Was surprised when the Z' final boss wasn't great thing, but it made for a more exciting final showdown since it was my first ever bout with the Cuttlefish:

Darius Plus - Wii VC - NO

Died right away on King Fossil but decided to shrug it off. :mrgreen:


Darius Plus

Image

Perikles & 5,798,750 & ALL & ABDHMRX & On

Got unlucky with the gray balls.


Super Darius

Perikles & 5,375,900 & ALL & ABDHMRX & On

Got lucky with the gray balls!

Edit: Looks like the other host I used is out of business, added working pictures (except for Super Darius, see my latest entry in this thread).

tinotormed, you appear to have missed PlasmaBlooD's crazy Super boss rush score.

Aren't Z' and V' the exact same as Z and V in all versions of this? They aren't listed as separate stages anywhere I look, and even Super Darius Perfection treats them as the same.

Speaking of which, here's a fantastic map of Super capsule placements. I'm not sure if these apply to the original Darius (not extra).

Very awesome useful stuff. The placements are different in the arcade game though, Vanilla and Extra are the same, and they are (surprisingly) more generous with powerups than Super or Plus.

Oh, I thought Extra completely rebalanced powerup placements. Oh well.

Eh, after playing a bit of the arcade version, I'm not entirely surprised... Super and Plus are quite a bit easier in many ways, before even taking powerups into account. I actually like that they removed powerups for an otherwise easier game instead of adding them.

NAME DKA_Darius; Score 5643090; Stage ALL; Route ACEHMRX; Auto Fire ON
The link of INP https://mega.co.nz/#!9JhWHIwK!dF58rQV0D ... DDzGt4PqZk

I think I can get more score on this Route,maybe about 200.000,I just get one high score white ball in the whole Route...it is lucky that I get every balls in ZONE M wishout using the Gold ball
The idea score of the ZONE X, it is possible about 6.000.000,don't rush into ZONE H,there are more worthwhile enemies in ZONE I,but this ZONE is not easy to destroy all of enemies...You need to remeber the location of the Gold ball

Hehe aww, I think I could get around 5.95 to 6 million if all goes well.

I got 2 or 3 51,200 medals in that run.

Just curious, but why are you guys playing Vanilla over Extra? Extra is the Japanese standard...

Updated, and Smraedis RKO's DKA's score out of nowhere, :lol: and even though he slightly improved his score, he still wasn't able to get past SM's score. :P

Happy?
I don't think I'll be able to increase my score on the Extra version much, and this doesn't beat my best on it either.

Nice :)

Have you ever considered learning a Z course and the GT milking? I've seen it go well over 10 million countless times at the arcade. I see what you mean with the X run though, I think you've probly pushed it close to as far as it's going to go.

I'm considering really digging in and learning to do it for myself. At this point I no-miss pretty much every run I do of my usual Z', but sans milking it has never gone over 88 milllion so I think it's time to push harder.

I can do the GT milk, but just like in Gaiden, I lose shield hits every so often, so cannot maximise the milks.
Though if I got good at it, I would want to see how high I can score on vanilla, but I can't milk GT at all with the small size wave beam.

Would've liked to get the first place, but the gray balls had a different opinion on this matter. I wonder who thought this terrible design choice an ingenious idea. :? Will probably play the arcade Darius in the foreseeable future, gotta get a full set.

Save yourself the frustration and make sure you play Darius [Extra]. Much better than the original. I've been practicing on-and-off Extra to get a clear on the board, but haven't pulled it off yet. :oops:
