    Tempted to get Aleste on Switch though; original series were portable games and a new GG game on Switch is fun.

    I suppose so, yes! I still have my 360, which is definitely the console of choice for shmups, for me, but PS4 could be fun. I don't have a shmup on that system yet, and have had it since launch. I should really play more games on it, I suppose. I am trying to use my switch more in 2021, as last year was a joke. There are some good shooters on that system. I have a modded virtua stick high grade which I can use on the PS4. That's all I need, really.

    I would love Dangun on Switch. It really seems the ports I want go to the wrong places! Touch annoying. I have ESP.ra.de on Switch but would probably prefer physical, on PS4. I'll take it, though. I prefer physical over digital for many reasons, but I might bite THE BULLET with Dangun. Feels stupid to have just DISCOvered it, because it's nearly bloody everything I like about CAVE shooters, plus manic speed and epic beats.

    Somehow this passed me by. Jesus Christ. It's amazing.

    That’s one reason I bought Zelda physical. I hardly enjoy it at the best of times, so I should sell it really. Digital games at 50 quid is a bit of a joke to me, but physical, OK. Can always sell, or then just keep it. Digital <20 is something of a sweet spot, but I don’t buy too many at all. I really want to get back into the switch and never had the draw that I hoped it would. I played and love Tetris Effect on PS4/VR but then there’s only bloody 99 on Switch and I don’t want another online service. The Switch does have some nice shmups, and though there’s more lag

    I can't really say what releases were my favourite, as I don't really buy on launch day, except for CCWE. I'd never played it before as I don't have a PC, so it was a real pleasure to get this in October. I started the year modding a stick and trying some DDP DFK 1cc (novice) attempts, and had good fun, but then the pandemic hit and I just wasn't interested in gaming at all. Weird; for many people it's the opposite. I am slowly getting back into things. Really enjoyed ACA Blazing Star recently, and Darius Gaiden (MAME). I love seeing photos of people's Switch Shmup coll
  7. Some great thoughts here, thanks all. Really interesting hearing everyone’s experiences like this. I actually have PSVR but didn’t mention it as i didn’t know that RE7 had that mode, or was in First Person. I’m just playing through Splinter Cell: Blacklist for the first time and forgot how good 360 games (and PS3) can look. 2 gens back now, but good controls (not “retro” really) and great graphics (my TV is 1080p). I’ll report back... please keep the discussion going as it’s rather useful and an entertaining read.
  8. I've not played a Resident Evil since Code Veronica on Dreamcast. I have a PS3, 360, and PS4 at my disposal. I read good things about RE4... should I start there? I think I played RE3 Nemesis back in the day, but TBH, I am not sure the story matters too much at this stage. 6 looks good but then I read poor reviews... What games in the RE franchise do you recommend?

    I bought it on the digital store due to impatience, and played it a fair bit, then stopped. I kind of stopped with a lot of shmups around march time when this year became shit. I got back into things a little with Crimson Clover the other week, and now I am off work for 3 weeks, I think I will give some shmups some more time. Part of that isnt really shmups, but the Switch. I bought it to have portable gaming, and haven't left the 100m surrounding my apartment since February. I used to travel loads, but that's all over. Anyway, wrong thread. In happier news, my Saturn
  10. Someone at my brother's work has this. Anyone else here have the RG351P? Worth it?

    That’s some proper hardcore Japanese style there. General westerners are not cut out for model making, which is a massive industry in Japan. I’d love that model, but have no desire to build it.

    It's good fun but it isn't DDP, but that can be a good thing.

    I would very much like one of the DDPs on Switch. Almost don't mind which one, actually. But yes, I would like Ketsui, MHSF... as well. I have all the Jap releases on my jp 360, but I would double dip on Switch. Speaking of Shmups, I think I will load up Crimson Clover again.
  14. I agree, I mean the people running emulation inside emulation etc.
  15. Indeed, this is what some people are missing. It's extremely cool that they're able to be played on DC, but there is already an Atomiswave emulator. Some people are double-dipping emulators, which is weird, but so long as people are having fun, who am I to judge?
