No Roo, you need to stick it. There comes a time in every boy's life where he must cast of the controller of his youth and embrace the controller of an adult. Besides you can shmup with a keyboard, which is pretty damn queer, so you should have no problem getting the hang of a stick.

Yes yes yes yes play with a stick. I have tried a couple different ones and I can notice a definite difference between them, so you need to try a few before you find one you're comfortable with. Different game types, grips and play styles all have different requirements for controls.

Plus these days pads tend to destroy my thumb ligaments after a very short amount of play time, sticks are way more comfortable.

UPDATE: We've changed this to Sunday October 14th from noon.

I was thinking of doing another one of these Friday October 12th from ~6pm like last time. That's the Friday following the Thanksgiving long weekend. Anyone else up for this?

I'm quite happy to host again or if someone else wants a turn that's cool too.

I'd go but it's -starting- at 6pm? That might be a little late for me and I don't know how eerie the highway all the way back to Toronto will be.

Well, it would be great to have you SFKhoa. Would earlier work? Also I don't mind changing it to Saturday either, but then we're cutting into people's weekends.

Just curious, would Sunday work at all? I just remembered I have to head down to Waterloo anyway for a video game swap meet.
If not, Friday is still cool.

I'm probably going to miss this one as I should be in the states hanging with friends and attending a local pro wrestling show. If plans change I'll let you know.

I could make it work but would only want to change if it's the popular vote. Any thoughts moh and 'Roo?

The 14th would work for me I think. I get off late enough that I'd have to rush to Waterloo after work or simply go in a few hours earlier to arrive in a timely fashion on Fridays, so I'm cool with Sunday.

Ok, seems there's no objections, so lets make it Sunday October 14th. Starting at noon and going until whenever (though I work Monday so not until 3am or whatever we did last time :lol:).

Don't forget that the CGCC video game swap meet is in Kitchener on the 14th from 1-4PM ;) It's at the Moose Lodge on Wabanaki! You guys should make a pilgrimage if you're gathering anyway!

Going to have to miss that. Out of country. Let me know if you're bringing anything you think I might want though. I'll still have friend's there who might buy something off you for me.

A local friend's got one I can borrow, I'll bring it along with me (and him if he's interested, he's fairly new to shmups and I'll try to drag him out).

Should I bring my collection of JP360 shmups or does everyone have it taken care of?
I'll bring my stick+pad (because I like alternating between both).

Also, moh. Sorry to randomly ask but would you still be interested in just the CPS2 B-board?

He's got a pretty massive collection (basically all of Cave's XBox 360 releases including Mushi HD if I recall) so I don't think you need to bring any extra games.

I actually ended up picking one up with mars matrix for pretty cheap. I could use a spare though, how much were you looking to get for it?

I actually don't know prices too well. I'll just bring it over anyway and we can decide from there.

Khoa, if you're dropping by, don't forget the few bucks ya owe me from last time! ;)

Also, for shmup stuff, I don't have much aside from a DDP DFK book cover thing, a boxed Thunderforce II, and a couple of random meh games. Nothing spectacular!
