I like it. Just watch me or the Hong Kong Mush player on it, you'll find its a decent game.
because its utter shite and it doesnt play like a cave game. large sprites and messy cgi. and considering that Raizing have produced some pretty decent titles in the past, there is no excuse for a modern shump like Pink Sweets.

^I disagree Mr Mills. I happen to like Pink Sweets and I don't view it as a Cave game. Plus I find the max-rank challenge breathes more life into the game. I'll show you a max-ranked run or two if you're down tomorrow.

thought that one was pretty cool

or could someone maybe post an up to date list of the games in?

That was Mushihimesama... A brilliant game by Cave. Hope you got the full experience as the monitor on that cab has been playing up, sometimes making the playing area go all narrow...

Also in there, though not for long, is ESPgaluda 2 and Pink Sweets, also by Cave.

Then there's Progear (by... Cave), and then Strikers 1954+ (By Psikyo)...

There also Metal Gear 3 (Is it 3?) and one multigame cab has Xevious...

Loads of fighting games I know nothing about too.

And DEL will now remind me of the one Casino Shooter I always forget...

ESPGaluda 2? Unless it had been taken away when you went in.

I agree Mr Mills. I happen to hate Pink Sweets and I don't view it as a game at all. Isn't it enough to hear the girl characters screaming non-stop throghout the game. I'd rather play Space Invader 24 hours non-stop.

The more hilariously the girl screams, the higher is your score. (Presumably, that is why you try to max up your rank to get infinite lives in stage 3 so that you can play suicide trick with stage bosses and make your girl scream painfully during your invincible period right after each time you die.)

Espgaluda 2 joystick is the most lamentable joystick I've ever come across. The Casino boss is either a fool or a cheat (or both). I recommend him to replace all shmup cabinets with pool tables, which makes more commercial sense and proves he's really a cheat.

Let's just be happy we got it at all, eh?

Pink Sweets isn't that bad, nay, it's plenty of fun. I'm shit at it but I can see the appeal - it's a very 'bouncy' shmup and the soundtrack is potty. It's like Raizing on acid.

If you watch DEL or Plasmo play it, all becomes clear.

Exactly - how could I complain that much when we've got this amazing Arcade to play in. It's infinitely better than nothing...

And Mr Hong Kong does well enough on those crappy sticks...

Pink Sweets is in a sit down Electrocoin. I find them good enough.

Skykid... I didn't think Progear was Capcom - just left a little pause before revealing yet another Cave game. A punctuation drum roll maybe, or an attempt at one!

That said, until I spotted the Cave logo from the Mushi cab I thought Progear was just another fighter!

^Thats good Mills, but ESP2 and Pink Sweets are coming out this week. I have Dharmesh's Tatsujin Oh and a Raiden DX. However I'd rather have some recent games to go in the arcade for a while.
ill6 has been more than generous. :D

A Muchi pork PCB is currently around £300-350 at yahoo auction. The price is expected to fall even more after the release of Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu next month.

--------------------------------------------
Casino Update:-Picked up ill6's Pink Sweets and EspII boards last night. Returning them to him with a big thanks!
The current replacements are Dodonpachi II Beestorm in the PS sit down cab and RF Jet again in the other one.
Pondering what's best to go in next... :idea:

Met spadgy last night with his Wii Sports board for review.
Met a face from the past: Ash who brought down a SF Zero board for installation also.

:lol: Yeah he was talking about putting it in the Marvel vs Cap 2 cab just to see the look on your face when you returned :lol: .

In fact, the plan is to do a switcheroo, putting Progear in the demolish fist cab and SF Zero in the Progear cab, so don't worry.

I'm looking on Ibara (not Black Label) for the Pink Sweets premium cab. I wanna play the board.

Regs, DEL

Were you looking for an Ibara board to put in? I'll happily lend mine.

That Wii Fit board was actaully surprisingly enticing for somebody who hates exercise and daft Nintendo games for bettering yourself. Full of personality and clever ways to get you hooked. My wife loves it, which is the target demographic I guess. Be warned though, if you do one for a lady in your life. It is rather rude in giving userers a fitness 'age'. My wife is actually a couple of years younger than me (I'm 27), but it said she had the health of a 36 year old. That was one of this weekends most delicate moments!

I'm back at Casino tonight if any of you are going down there

Thanks for the Ibara board offer spadgy, but for now ill6 is lending his one. If this doesn't occur for any reason, then I'll be asking you :wink: .

Cheers,

OK. If iLL6 fancies a break from letting the public near his boards, I'm happy to repay the favour, as I've got plenty of pleasure from his generosity with regard to Casino...

I'll PM you my mobile number just in case....
