Re: The 360 Import Thread

Impressive effort, 2013 I've never actually played any Triangle Service games. Quite fancied Shooting Love 200X but the price was prohibitive. In fact I always meant to get XII Stag too but for some reason it remains one of the few PS2 shmups I'm lacking. But this is really great news. Makes me thin...

Re: The 360 Import Thread

Very interested in Ginga Force. I actually quite like the idea of the story and how it informs the stage design. Most importantly, though: dem bosses. I had doubts when I heard about the story mode and the shop and suchlike but having seen it I feel like it'll be Qute's amazing design that shines th...

Re: Terrible games buys you completely regret.

Persona 4

Not my cup of tea. Not even slightly. An OK story wrapped up in a naff game wrapped up in some kind of monstrous high school simulator. It wouldn't have been such a problem if it hadn't taken me 60 hours to realise this.

Re: Who plays a musical instrument ?

I play the piano but it's been difficult to keep it up without a piano. I do have a keyboard but it's not quite the same. I had the best of intentions at the start of term but it's petered out a bit. I do enjoy it a lot, though. My plan was and still is to relearn the first movement of Mozart's pian...

Oooh yeah http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/8213/dsc03051pa.jpg Been playing mostly for survival since I got back on this horse so some score improvement has been a long time coming. Only the second time I've reached stage 5. In truth there were a fair few botches in stages 2 and 3 that left me in ...

G1 Jockey Wii. The tutorial lasts about an hour in total and by the end of it I was still just desperately waving my arms about.

Re: Your Greatest Ever Gaming Achievement

Psyvariar Revision TLB ALL with 88 million. Not a particularly impressive when you consider what is possible in the game, especially since I used the roll button. Nevertheless I think this is still the western record, which is kind of perverse when you consider that there are plenty of players (prob...

Re: The 360 Import Thread

Hot damn 2013 just turned into an ace year for shmups. I have high hopes for Caladrius, Saidaioujou looks like a blast and since I've been getting into Eschatos Ginga Force looks like and increasingly attractive prospect as well.

Next you'll be telling me Psyvariar 3 is out in June.

Re: The Castlevania series.

Do like me some Castlevania. Order of Eccelsia is one of my favourites. Did a clean hard mode level 1 cap run, in fact. I really hope they make another 2D Castlevania soon. I'd probably be laughed out of the boardroom for suggesting this but I think it's time for a new big screen console game in 2D....

Re: Eschatos (with Justice Silversword & Cardinal Sins)

Cool scores Misery! Judgement Silversword - Easy - weakboson - FJK - 3,553,980 - ALL Divine Flow was the last boss, which I assume is because it was Easy mode. That's lucky because I was down to my last life. Going to spend a bit more time with Cardinal Sins before I decide which Normal mode to move...

Re: Dark Souls 2!

I love the idea of Dark Souls... I've almost picked it up several times.. but there is really no point. The difficulty is such that it would be a waste of money.... Forgive me, but this seems paradoxical - surely it's a contradiction to say the idea of Dark Souls is good but the difficulty is bad. ...

Re: Dark Souls 2!

Yep. Stuff like that is the difference between someone new to the game hacking away at the bell gargoyles with an unupgraded battle axe and an experienced player breezing through it with some resin and a few sunbros. To the player in the former situation the game is a lot harder than it has to be. M...
