Still hoppin' along and playing Sisters Royale; I got a new PB that puts me at #4 on my character's global leaderboard. Hope to get a clear soon!

Kind of tempted to get that game now.

If you like Shikigami no Shiro, Sisters Royale is pretty much that, but chibi (same devs even). It's fun!

Got Kyuukyoku Tiger for the PC Engine in the mail the other day, so that's up now.

Ha, nah, that was me. Just a super old ebay name. Left you feedback earlier today!

I had been debating between Genesis and PC Engine versions for a while now, but ended up going with the latter despitebroken scoring. It so far has not disappointed. Thanks for it!

I like the PCE version better of the two I played; BIL sings the praises of MD Twin Cobra, but it was a little too smooshed in for my taste. Good luck on the 2ALL :mrgreen:

MD Tiger's "crash zoom & crop, job done" turns an elegant, measured vert into a TRAPPED IN THA CLOSET nightmare barely fit for human consumption. Image Memoriser Bullshit™ is inevitably upped, with visibility and headroom indiscriminately chopped, but that aside, I like the combination of Fast Aimed Shots™ and nose-to-nose 4:3. Brisk! No Way Out! At such mortal range, Good Fighting Is Required™ With icy control paramount, it makes flailing noobs think their cartridge harbours fucking Skynet or some shit. Image

"I optimistically pawed at the buttons like an inebriated chimp and was promptly shot! HOW DO IT KNOW WHERE ID BE, AMAZING DARK AI SECRET" I feel a Shikigami no Shiro III quote coming on. :cool:

You can't bluff your way through this one. Die. Image (ESPECIALLY as, true to arcade specifications, bomber is not ready! In fact, it's the furthest thing from ready!)

In a stirring reversal of fortune, brazen KT copycat Raiden becomes MD Tiger's ideal substitute, as Seibu actually gave a shit about the yoko conversion. :wink:

Finally bit the bullet and ponied up for Esprade.

Enjoying it, managed to blag my way to the 3rd boss on the first couple of credits, it's hitting the sweet spot for my limited skills.
Not a clue what the systems are, and at the minute I don't think I'm going to bother to try and learn at least for the time being - as soon as I do, I start trying to play 'properly' and end up worse off than I was when I first approached a game.

Is this the only one ported to Switch? Shame, it runs pretty flawlessly as far as I can tell. Probably end up picking up the rest on PS4 if they ever go on sale.
