Damn a rare Western WR stolen! :shock: As long as nobody takes ben shinobi's score on Shinobi . . . His play on that game blows my mind.

That's too bad about the random elements, especially that midboss. Anyone know if the Switch version behaves in the same way? With that version you can also compete for scores with the added extra ships. One of them plays quite differently as it has an Image Fight style speed up back burst where you can assign auto to speed change and defeat enemies that way.

At least it's not as random as Darius Gaiden's totally random medals that result in huge point swing based entirely on luck. I was thinking about this kind of randomness and considering if it's total bullshit or not. One way of thinking about it is that it may provide an extra way to differentiate the best player. In the sense that the most consistent player will eventually reach the highest score as it's unlikely that a player who has only done one or two perfect runs will get a new WR. Also it adds pressure and nerves when you can see that you are on a rare run. At least that's the charitable point of view. The other is that it's flat out unfair.
