I have no clue, but 16 million might be possible. I'm getting hit a lot at the moment so my ranks are pretty awful. I can't even S rank stage 2 for some reason, I'll have to look in to that. My boss strategies aren't so hot either, and I'm barely using the Overdose in the stages after the first 2.

I had a run before this where I failed to destroy the 4th and 6th bosses with the Overdose which would cost me about 500,000 points and I finished the game with 15.1 million. I'm assuming the bosses are worth the same amount as in the regular game, so 500,000 might not be accurate. I haven't actually checked, I need to play the game in widescreen for a while to figure out how many points everything's worth.

EDIT
Did some testing and it turns out each part of the stage 6 boss is worth 100,000 points plus 100,000 for destroying it completely, although that bonus 100,000 doesn't seem to be affected by the multiplier. If you can time it right and take out all four pieces at once you could net 800,000 points there.

Side Vower - Normal
MrMonkeyMan - 15,810,850 - ALL(9mil) - P1

I nailed the stage 3 boss, got x1.9 on all three parts.

I think I have a pretty good weapon route through the game, but stage 4 still messes me up almost every time (can the attached robot pick up weapons, because I seem to end up with weapons I don't want a lot in that stage?). Stage 5 and 6 are so easy in comparison, hell stage 6 is one of the easiest stages in the game, especially if you have a level 2 laser, reflect and a robot in front of you with sword slashing away at everything. I might have to abandon my helper buddy for some extra points with the overdose though, probably when the three huge ships come in.

Oh, and why the hell can't I S rank stage 2? Is there some hidden enemy I'm not seeing, or what?

No, it cant. it uses the third weapon slot. I use direction on that stage to make it easier, usually raising it to 2dan. Wow, if you have laser2 reflect and sword on stage 6, our weapon routes are pretty different.

Also, is it just me or is that "three huge ships" part a tribute to ketsui? :p

Fuck it, I'm sick of trying to get a good multiplier on the third boss, the missile spam of the fourth boss and all the other random crap messing up my runs. I'm done.

It's not so bad when I'm not trying to play a perfect game.

Side Vower - Hard
MrMonkeyMan - 17,161,770 - ALL(9mil) - P1

I don't think I'll go any farther with this. I hit my goal of 17 million. Here's a video of it.

Took me a little longer this time but I got my first Vower 1CC :)

Side Vower - Normal
antares - 11,076,430 - ALL(6mil) - P1

Don't know if I'll go for the 9 mil end bonus, all the random shit on the Vower side is annoying me.

It turned out adopting my weapon usage to get everything all leveled up wasn't that difficult:

Side Vower - Normal
antares - 14,945,460 - ALL(9mil) - P1

On my last runs I always died when I tried to level up my Bomb on the 5th boss so this time I decided to ignore the Bomb and got the 1CC :)

Has anyone managed to get Bomb to 10dan after the patch?

I don't see how it's possible to kill the 4th and 6th boss only using bombs. Before the patch you could at least go into overdose and make serious damage by piling into the bosses. But now I have to use the sword to finish those two in time and in the end my bomb is only on 8dan :(

It should be possible, although using the bombs proficiently after the patch will get used to, I'll see if I can test it out, even though I already got Weapon Master and all achs. Will post new update scores sometime soon.

Strania - Normal (pre-patch lol)
Enhasa - 14,685,860 - ALL(9mil) - P2

I miss being able to ram the TLB hilariously and effectively.

I've moved on from this game at least for the rest of the year. I have even less time coming up than I did so far this year.

    Strania Hard - Umakacchan - 16,539,360
    Strania Expert - Ganbaru Ginkun - 16,509,530
    Vower Normal - Level kotei no Udewa - 17,133,590

    Vower Expert - Level kotei no Udewa - 18,677,810


XBL leaderboard records beat some of those, so corrected list as afaik the two versions should be identical:

    Strania Normal - Shochou - 15,868,700 (NESSiCA)
    Strania Hard - Umakacchan - 16,539,360 (NESSiCA)
    Strania Expert - highmustang - 16,561,750 (XBL)

    Vower Normal - LevelFix - 17,157,240 (XBL)
    Vower Hard - Level kotei no Udewa - 18,715,710 (NESSiCA)
    Vower Expert - LevelFix - 18,780,240 (XBL)

also, for some reason all the top scorers on XBL vower play as 2P.. mysterious :p
still wondering why expert scores are higher than hard.

Awesome dude, maybe you can help me comp out the achievements since I'm weak and never beat Hard Mode.

One more top tier vid linked from fix level armbar, from a different player. Just uploaded today as well. Funny commentary!

I'd like to get 16m, but I probably won't bother if it means I'll have to figure out an entirely different weapon path. Planning everything out is a pain. :lol:

Hard
iconoclast - 16,022,160 - ALL (9mil) - P1

A few mistakes and some bad luck on the stage 6 boss cost me a little over 200k points, but I hit my goal of 16m so I think I'll stop here. Gonna upload the replay later. edit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZydMjR956wY


And if you want to update the world records in the OP, the top scores on XBL are:

Strania Normal - 15,950,590 - LevelFix
Strania Hard - 16,754,250 - LevelFix
Strania Expert - 16,603,420 - LevelFix

Vower Normal - 17,250,890 - LevelFix
Vower Hard - 18,759,480 - LevelFix
Vower Expert - 18,780,240 - LevelFix

A clean sweep. :lol:

Thanks, but my score really isn't that great. The weapon rank system and the end bonus throws the scoring balance out of whack, so top scores become very compact after a certain point. It might not look like much, but there's a huge difference between my score and LevelFix's 16.7m imo.

Updated. Awesome scores Iconoclast (and LevelFix, heh). Going to give Vower side a try or move on to something else?

Still one Expert score that is higher than Hard, anyone have an idea what could make scoring potential in expert higher or easier to reach?

edit: also updated with new arcadia scores

I'll play Side Vower eventually, but I'm not really in the mood to start learning a new game. I might just play Expert mode until Metal Gear or Ginga Force comes out, I dunno.

Maybe the stage 5 boss drops more of those gray boxes in Expert? The score is only 20k higher and the boxes are worth 1000 pts each, so I think that's the most likely reason.

Bumping this with some of my old scores, hopefully this thread will be relevant again soon enough.

Stranian Side:
Normal: T4N3 - 15.168.660 - All (9Mil) (P2)
Hard: T4N3 - 15.454.360 - All (9Mil) (P2)

Vower Side:
Normal: T4N3 - 15.731.870 - All (9Mil) (P1)
Hard: T4N3 - 17.018.740 - All (9Mil) (P1)

Screw Expert.

edit: all scores are post-patch.

Good scores by the way, and yeah, screw Expert difficulty, reverse bullets are a pain. >_>
