Standard - Hard - Phoenix - gameoverDude 22589700 ALL

Here it came on Monday, and it's Friday night. I never bothered with the Normal mode- going straight to Hard. POW, down it goes. I kind of miss the endgame bonus, but what the hey- I suicided on the final form of the boss, then rinsed him to heck and back again with a L2 Over Weapon right at respawn. 8)
Kinect? KIN NOT.

Now I realize that a leftover ship is worth 100K in Hard mode (contrary to what I thought, there is an endgame bonus), but I probably came out ahead on that deal. 1M on Maniac is too much to piss away though.

Since this thread feels like a ghost town, I'll post my crappy Phoenix score:

Standard - Hard - Phoenix - ZOM - 23,882,700 - ALL

EDIT: Let's add Kids & Easy as well:

Standard - Kids - Rynex-R - ZOM - 27,056,400 - ALL

Standard - Easy - Rynex-R - ZOM - 27,499,400 - ALL


Ok, time to tackle Maniac with Rynex. I don't think I can beat Kiken though...
Kiken, did you no miss all stages in Maniac with Rynex to get that score?

Yep. It was a No Miss run. And so was this one:

Standard - Maniac - Syrinx - Kiken - 33,067,000 - ALL

I missed a couple of thousand pts in this run (forgot about the extra CRAW in the fire stage and missed a few odd enemies), but I think I used my Over Weapon about as well as I could.

Which ship was the person using?

I think you'd have to nail every green reticle target for 16x, which is rather difficult. Unless there's another hidden extend or 2 that we haven't found yet.

I figured it out. He abuses Phoenix's Wave weapon (which is actually quite powerful), and he tries to finish every level with a good deal of Over Weapon stock.

Ahhh... Yes, funny thing is, after reading your post about the OW stock in the strategy thread i was gonna check out the video again. :)

I think the Rynex's Blade is slightly weaker than the Phoenix's Wave weapon;
The big ships in stage 4 go down much quicker with the Phoenix.

Are there multiple boss parts to destroy or is it just "form a" etc.? The way it targets different parts is kind of weird if not.

Nice score Rob.

I'm still working on that Maniac&Rynex No Miss. Damn ocean stage's crate corridor always destroys my shield or kills me...

Yeah, same here. :)
But I want to make it through without OW, problem is that freaking corridor is just too random with that blue enemies who pop out of the crates :?

Yeah, I don't think I've ever ALLed a game so quickly.. pretty much everything will go down with two overweapons...
Wish there were more scoring parts in the game, as I feel like there is not much else to do in the game anymore (except play on every single difficulty with every single ship...)
