Not played it but I thought it looked like a bullet-hell version of the awesome Twinkle Tale. Looks really decent.Sel Feena wrote:Question for fellow shmuppers - Mamoru Kun on PS3, has anyone played it, got any feedback either way?

I've got the 360 version but the PS3 version is the definitive last revision, I seem to remember there are some gameplay tweaks and screen optimisations which mean it plays better on the Sony Console. If you can get the PS3 limited version for any kind of decent price snap it up because importers tend to sell this one for a real premium for some reason (very low print run I think). There's a best version too that should be quite reasonable. It plays like a scrolling shooter but you can move your character around a bit like in Ikari Warriors or Outzone but from a cute-em-up stance. There's also branching levels - it's fun but definitely not everyone's cup of tea.Sel Feena wrote:Question for fellow shmuppers - Mamoru Kun on PS3, has anyone played it, got any feedback either way?

^ Umming and aahing about getting that in, need to watch more vids of it first. Genki have come up trumps again, with a copy of Soreyuke Burunyanman Portable set to one side for me. Picking it up next week, looks great fun from YouTube vids I've watched, although perhaps a little on the easy side?
Though...yeah, I see your point. Even DoDonPachi has gone that way a little bit. And Qute seemed to feel the need to stick anime silliness into the mix with Ginga Force. Under Defeat HD? That was all military-type stuff? Although that's not new IP. Hmm.
I like a bit of anime silliness in my shmups - it makes dealing wide-scale death and destruction a more cheery affair
Suppose you were an idiot; suppose also that you were an XBox One owner. But I repeat myself.
The upcoming Redux doesn't seem to have stupid anime girls in it but I suspect you may be right even the mighty Moss had some in Caladrius. Boooweakboson wrote:Seeing those two games next to each other has made me realize that we may never see a shmup as manly as Ketsui again.
