Re: Deathsmiles on 360 getting a PAL release..

I got a 1 credit clear in Arcade with Rosa, alriiiight . My first Cave 1CC (and almost certainly my last ) it's fairly easy when you know where the food items are and how best to use your limited Rank 1/Rank 2 stages. Helps to get the two extends as well. I've got a strategy down for the Train/Port/...

Re: Deathsmiles - Xbox 360

I am 5th on a Cave game's leaderboard (with EX Off).

Re: Deathsmiles on 360 getting a PAL release..

Honestly, the stage selection is my favourite element of the game, partly because picking certain routes gets you extra lives, and I like the idea of finding the best score route. Personal preference, I think. For anyone who really wants to know how the score system works (and where to find extra li...

Re: Deathsmiles on 360 getting a PAL release..

I take it then 360 mode is the same as Arcade but with better res graphics? There also seems to be a little less slowdown in the 360 mode. One example I've spotted so far is during the boss fight in the swamp when they launch the giant purple spheres- in Arcade mode, the game slows down a bit, but ...

I second this motion, especially the Port stage music. Very glad the soundtrack came with the game.

Curses, foiled again, etc. Hill Top does have some cracking music, I will concede.

Re: Marvel Vs Capcom 3 coming to 360

I've been doing some online too with Haggar/Spencer/Deadpool (as well as some random player matches, my ranked score is a clean 10 win/10 loss split) and the characters I dread to fight are Dante and Wesker. Once they get poor Haggar in an air combo, they won't let him go, and Dante has so many move...

P.S The music on Oil Ocean and Metropolis Zone - superb!
No problem- you'll need the ABC control mode to get other cheats working on that collecton, it's the weird way they coded the controls.

Also the best music in Sonic 2 is actually Chemical Plant.

Re: Deathsmiles on 360 getting a PAL release..

I'm getting the hang of it now. Got to work out the best route and best time to use your power shot. Yeah, this is the point I'm at- got the hang of how to get the most crowns from at least some of the enemies (I've got the train stage down) and how the familiar works, now trying to work out a dece...

Re: This will take you back... Sonic 2 Level Select Cheat

Go to the emulator menu (Back) and set the controls to ABC mode. Then do the code as normal, and hold the button you've set as A and press Start on 1-Player Start on the title screen.

Re: Marvel Vs Capcom 3 coming to 360

Got my copy today (360) and have been playing for a while. Had a bit of a bad start as I accidentally set the game into Simple mode, got into an online fight (interrupting my arcade run) and, well, I wish I'd saved the replay- future generations could've used that footage to learn how not to play vi...

Golden Axe which was more enjoyable than I had been led to believe. Sure, the gameplay wasn't amazing but the music is fantastic. I hated the game personally (among many other things, each stage is wayyyyyy too long- you could probably beat the original Golden Axe about three times while trying to ...

Re: Platform games for snes/ps2

Do you know if there are any differences between the snes version and the playstation version? The PS2 version has totally new levels and, if you ask me , is pretty horrid overall. I'd get the SNES one instead. Also, probably not the sort of thing you're looking for (might not be platformer-y enoug...

Re: Deathsmiles on 360 getting a PAL release..

Raiden 3 doesn't sell for peanuts, it's only &17.99 to start with so I don't think it will drop by much. Raiden 3 will set you back at least £50 these days Glad I picked up my copy years ago for a fiver, then. Good ol' 505 Game Street, eh? Also unsurprised regarding the fate of Raiden Fighters Aces...
