Re: WiiWare - Retro remakes / sequels

Gradius Rebirth is well worth a go. It's only like 600 points right? I've not played that many Gradius games so perhaps I'm insensitive to where things are being recycled, but it seems they've handled the throwbacks pretty well. The game as a whole is just quite a nice package. I keep meaning to ret...

Re: YS Seven (PC version) for the Western market in the futu

Possibly interested in this. Enjoyed what I've played of Oath in Felghana, though I've not completely made up my mind about it yet. I started on Hard and fought my way up to a lava dragon boss thing. Got close to finishing him off before so I will probably return to it someday.

Re: Dragons Dogma - Dark arisen

Wanted to play the original but never got round to it - actually I very nearly got it just before the new version was out - but in any case I saw this up for preorder for £13.something on amazon and couldn't argue with that. It's waiting at home for me for after exams.

Re: Greatest shoot-em-ups

If you want an innovative, unique game then please check out Psyvariar. For me Psyvariar Revision is definitely one of the best shmups ever. http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/7572/graviton22.gif Got to mention Cave's games too. If I had to pick I'd say Mushihimesama Futari is probably my favourite,...

Re: Mushihimesama Futari ver 1.5

Thanks Kol!

Looking back it wasn't as hard as I thought it was. The numerous cancels and tiny hitbox help keep the difficulty fairly average. But I still remember the war attrition that was my campaign to 1CC Original mode so it's nice to think of how far I've come :lol:

Re: Tropes and sexism in gaming.

I don't know what points on sexism you can really make from a Mario game. The characters and their role in the narrative are so far from the core engagement of the game that the only thing you can really take from them is that games need only the flimsiest of pretenses to get going. I mean, why take...

Had two deaths in quick succession in the run up to Larsa - whoops. But I didn't have enough to bombs to get through her anyway. Quite proud of this score and I'm not gonna stop :)

Re: Crying.. do you?

Weddings, funerals aside. All i'm saying is: "Grave yard of the fireflies"? Just me? Leave me alone -- right? Me too. I practically bawled my eyes out when I first saw that film. Just thinking about it now is making me a little teary, even. I only saw this film when my brother was watching it and I...

The Mars Volta

They provide some of the best music for shmupping out there.
