Two more runs to Volvox followed by abject failure.

Been playing some Steredenn too over the last week to break up routine. Starting to get further into it (stage 5/6), but still haven't looped it.

The rogue elements are welcome, but if the game has a weakness it is that there are too many weapons and more than half of them are shit.

Ever curious, I decided I would savestate my way through Argus, having done so with Battlantis and Valtric before. I cannot properly describe the exultation I got out of the boss in Area 13. Here's a video with a few attempts for demonstration purposes.

Reminds me of the 2-3 boss in Parodius Da, except instead of bell powers you get peashooters that don't even work all the time. :lol:

Crimzon Clover: World Ignition Boost mode.

Such rank. Much intense. Wow.

Seriously, though, I wish I had tried this with Type-Z Boost when I got the game, instead of focusing on Type-I Original. It's the "moderate difficulty" mode that I wanted but didn't realize the game had.

Radiant Silvergun // Xbox 360. I think I've got stages 3 and 2 down, but stage 4 is wrecking me.

Trying to stop myself from buying another dozen 360 games... RType Dimensions is at the top of the list. Starting to think I should've just gotten this console instead of a PS4.

Died in the last 5 seconds of Gigafacer's timeout phase in Mahou Daisakusen, the bomb delay in this game is real. Got all mine patterns from Tsumuji and chain died, thanks a bunch RNG gods. I thought I would be able to pick this clear off in a week because of the gargantuan amount of bombs you're provided, but it seems I underestimated the lengthy recovery time. I find it much easier to no miss up to the stage 5 boss than to recover in the previous stages/too early in stage 5. While this game isn't that difficult overall, it's tricky in the few places that count, and having to recover at certain points is often death sentence for the run.

The stage 5 boss can go fuck itself.

How was your progress in Border Down coming along? I am taking the less is more approach and throwing a credit into Progear every few days.

The wife is working this evening from 5 till 10 (she is a closed captioner - doing a MLS match :) so I will occupy myself with a credit or three of the following:

Under Defeat
Mars Matrix
Fast Striker
Sturmwind - It has been ages and it ain't perfect, but it sure is easy on the eyes and the soundtrack is pure sex.
Gunbird 2 - Only if I feel like tateing my tiny behemoth of a crt.
Progear
Steredenn - Close to looping this one.

A glass of bourbon to accompany me (and maybe a little something green too), yeah not a bad way to spend the evening.

it was coming slowly, I made it to stage 4 a couple of times in a single credit (stage 3,boss is brutal, as you're forced to fight low powered dodging shit from every angle). I then got side tracked by twinkle star sprites, I thought I should play some of the other games I own! I'm still into border down, just haven't played it for a couple of weeks but once again, I've lost focus for a single game.

Less is more works for me sometimes but only if I know the game well.

Sounds like nice chilled evening my friend, great list btw!

Border Down is sometimes life.

You're driving your car, BORDER DOWN suddenly you're cycling.

breakup with yer girl BORDER DOWN now you're dating an uggo
or I guess border red would be your hand.

It happens to the best of us D:

playing a Cave game BORDERDOWN: oh you're playing psikyo. :wink:

As for me I sometimes play a credit of Garegga with Chitta instead of the usual golden bat, to remind myself that things could be worse.

Yeah I saw you cleared it. Awesome job! I tried to get into it seriously a while back but just couldn't manage the rank properly. I would get murdered by the end of cloud stage (plus I just can't boss milk in Garegga).

Ah, That's been feeling like a fluke because i haven't been able to do it since, and never got a recording >_<
I was just playing better than my usual standard that day I think.
Consistency is hard..

I'll repost Eaglet's advice for rank/ survival clears then

Quote:
In general, if you want the easiest time with it, i'd say go with Miyamoto (C) and an autofire rate that's slightly higher than standard. Raise it to 10hz if you can do it succesfully since it doesn't affect frame rank whatsoever.

With Miyamoto (and any other ship if you want low rank) ignore all small shot powerups and only level up with the big ones.
However, Miyamoto's offensive strengths are his options so you'd do well to keep at least two at every opportunity.
If you aren't going for any special scoring tricks then 2 options only should see you through everything up til stage 6 and onwards where you should be at max power anyways. :)

Do not ignore medals at all! Even if you want to keep rank low. Since medals valued higher than 400 points increase rank by a microscopic amount only whilst 100, 200, 300 and 400 medals are some of the most rank increasing pickups in the game.
I'd say the only point where you shouldn't try to rebuild your medal value is stage 6 and onward if you're just going for the clear.

Also, never keep above 2 extra ships until stage 6.

Cheers mate! I'll give it a try when I next have the Saturn out...

EDIT: I need that kind of low rank clear advice for ibara at the moment.

Been playing Ghost Blade HD (on PC) for a while now.
I know that there is some controversy around it, but I found it works quite well for me.

Blinge's Guck Faregga log.

1.Great birds, Decent score, one medal break.
- Dodged Black Heart II super good, including full vulcan.
- NMNB Glow Squid until the escape pod came out. Failed.
- I put another credit in, fired TWICE and he died. :|

2. Potentially best score I've ever had, kept chain well into stage 6. 3 spare lives.
- Black Heart II giving me grenades, then grenades + popcorn. Can't believe my luck
- moves mostly offscreen, I don't have the wherewithal to bomb, think I'm safe & get hit by reflect shot
- Takes ages to die, I fail the vulcan.
- have to bomb to stop 3rd phase beginning.
- credit ends at glow squid.

I guess the best thing about my obsessive play lately is that I'm not so scared of St6 anymore. Especially now i'm bombing some hatches.

This version, perhaps much harder than the arcade or PCE port (on default difficulty). The safespot is no longer works in that section.

Finally made it to stage 5 of Phantasmagoria of Dim Dream on Lunatic.
Spoiler: show

Was playing as Marisa, and the utterly brutal, climactic battle on Stage 4 was against my favorite opponent (Mima).

What an absolutely beautiful monster of a game. The hype is real on this one.

Just switched to Next Emulation and made it to stage 6 on first attempt. The superior emulation ever.

Fast Striker Original/Maniac

FS is a game that deserves more love than it gets. I've cleared original before and have made it back to the end, but some sloppy deaths have kept me from another 1 CC.

Maniac gives you harder stages, but the bosses don't seem to be any more difficult than original. Got to stage five today - easily the furthest I have ever gotten.

I've played a little of Omake too. Harder stages than maniac and harder bosses. Shit is currently way beyond me, but I've gotten to the stage two boss.

^ Stevens is a dc man.

I also agree Stevens, fs doesn't appear to get much love and is underrated. I really enjoyed my time learning it. A maniac clear would be pretty cool dude!

Stampfer - Yeah I'm a DC guy. Not exclusively or anything, but I do love that console. I have two currently, but would like to replace the laser with an SD reader soon.

Jonst - I think I can clear maniac. I think the thing that bothers me the most about it is there is no practice mode, that would have been nice.

Still haven't figured out the tech bonus on the stage 4 boss, but I think I know what it is. I usually grab them on stages 1 - 3 although on stages one and two you have to be careful not to kill the boss too fast if you're playing on original.

Stage five tech is still a bit too hard because the satellites are sponges, but it is the same as stage one.

I have not quit Progear. That and UD are my weekend games. I know them both well enough that I can concentrate on FS during the week and break it up a little at weeks end.

Danmaku Unlimited 3, currently Spirit Hard mode. TLB is something. Can reach him with 4 lives but that last form is so unfair.
P.S. Just did 1CC with 1 spare life.

Following some tips, I went back to Garegga... And almost beat blackheart. This has been my best credit yet. I continued on to stage 6 and was totally unprepared!
