Picked up Ketsui on PSN and Blue Revolver on Steam. I haven't had a ton of time to play shmups the last few months so I'm hoping to push Crimzon Clover hard and pick up a 1CC of Arcade Original

I haven't really played any shooters since the summer. When White Vanilla came out I went back to Zero Ranger and finally put that puppy to bed. What a game!

Bought R Type Dimensions on Steam. Played it a lot as a kid on the SMS, low and behold I made it back to stage 6 on a credit. Not my first credit mind you, but after an hour or so..I would say a 1 CC is certainly do able. Though I say that a lot - get far in a game (stage 5 Ketsui/Battle Traverse) and move on to something else. So lets see if I stick with it.

I sort of dig the newer graphics, and would probably use them if you could use them with the original ost. The new ost sounds like it belongs in a Cave game. Doesn't fit at all.

Only played a credit of two.

Played a little bit of Crisis Wing too, made it back to stage 5 and put a few runs in caravan mode.

EDIT - R Type stage 7 towards the end. Crisis Wing still stage 5, some routing and less stupid deaths on 4 would be a start. crashed into TWO of the stationary green carriers trying to point blank; ). Stage 4 is definitely a Tatsujin/Truxton 2 homage - it goes on and on and on...

Crisis Wing

Made the stage 6 boss.

Some sloppy play through stages 3 and 4 hurt me overall, but was able to recover (which is pretty merciful here) and finish 4 strong.

Felt good to finally get through stage 5. Stage 6 isn't too bad - the boss starts to amp it up though.

I would also like to mention the ost. In general it is really really good. Stand outs are stages 2, 3, and 6. 1 and 5 are also pretty good. Boss music is also great and fits well.

It sounds like a Mega Drive ost.

Anyone else giving this one time?

Last time I tried, the blinking bullets are too much for me because I am slightly photosensitive. The game felt good to play though.

I don't know that I'd classify Cuphead as a shmup, but Mrs. To Far Away Times and I recently bought it and played through a few levels. Pretty fun stuff.

The game has a bit of cross over appeal for her with the art style. I didn't think I catch her playing a run and gun or shmup any time soon.

Picked up Sonic Wings 3 on sale for Switch last night. I like. Seems relatively manageable as well.

Taking a break from Trouble Witches Origin and i'm into the Hurricane of Varstray: Collateral Damage and man, it's as frantic as i remember it when i was playing the demo back then. Arguably one of the best vertical ones i've played.

P.S.: Got the 51th position at Novice today after lots of deaths. I wonder what's going on at Standard difficulty...

Nice. Can you tate your TV for Gunbird? It's the only way (and why I haven't gotten it for Saturn!).

I'm playing a lot of Castle Shikigami and Sisters Royale, being on my Alfa System kick. I feel like I should try to return to Giga Wing 2 before the year is out; it's been months since i was pushing personal bests in the game...

I have a rotatable low latency monitor and a Saturn SCART cable, but still need to make an OSSC happen.

After years of waffling I purchased Garegga on the PS 4 after a few beers.

The one thing I changed immediately was the color of the bullets. My old ass eyes appreciate this option immensely, yellow works fantastically.

Played some premium, some arcade, some custom with no rank.

Looks like we're playing the same game at the same moment. :P

My goal is to clear BG until the end of the year

When did you start BG and how is your progress coming along?

I've been switching back and forth still. I've gotten as far as stage 6 in premium, in arcade I've gotten to the end of 5.

After just learning that Battle Garegga is on PS4 2 weeks ago, and then ordering a PS4 arcade stick and receiving it today, I am playing Garegga. They really went all out on this version, it’s spectacular. I got to Blackheart 1 after playing for a little bit, which I’ve only been able to do on the Saturn version in the past. The input lag on the MAME version makes the game much tougher than it should be. I guess I’ll be buying Ketsui and DF soon.

Trigon. I suck so badly at this game it's untrue. Made it just past where you get the first option in level 3, got splattered. Still can't do the second boss without bombing at least once. Don't know what it is, but this game kicks my ass so hard it's not even funny.

Trigon is nails-hard even in its first loop, though actually pretty generous WRT bombs - their provision and effectiveness alike. Treating them less as desperate last resorts, more mighty Yagawa-style SPECIAL WEAPONs for cleaving through deadly boss attacks will help you break it open. Here's my current st2 boss tack, and something a bit further in, to illustrate.

Gotta ration 'em out wisely ofc. Choose your own adventure. :wink:

Decided to pickup some titles in my library that I don't really play.

Mushihimesama - Trying to 1cc on normal but god damn its brutal (for me anyway) best ive done is late stage 3. Need some more practice.

Dariusburst CS - Also trying to 1cc arcade. ADH route. Seems more do-able than mushi.

Are you enjoying Rolling Gunner? What difficulty mode are you working on?

It's pretty tough. Tougher than the sequel I think, because Mushi Futari 1.5 has much stronger shot types to use, relatively speaking.

Picked up Game Tengoku for Switch while on sale.
Never like this one on Saturn, but I quite enjoyed what I played last night. New characters are quite entertaining, and mostly removed my one aggravation with the original, which was that the player always felt a little under-powered to begin with. Made it to mid ST3 where some mini-boss thing spewed a load of green shit out and lost me every life. I'm struggling to think of the last time I made it past halfway in a shooter actually, though it might help if I didn't flit around without every properly settling on one game to practise.

I ordered the physical on Switch...not sure when it'll ever materialize.

You can hide horizontally with the midboss on stage 3 in Game Tengoku; the pattern is totally static and doesn't track you. That large ship gave me a lot of trouble bitd too!

Never, by my indication. Just like my Radirgy Swag.
