  1. SHITTING HELL Crimzon Clover Is it just me or did they improve this over the Steam version for Switch? It’s sharper, has loads of little tweaks and runs absolutely beautifully. Well worth double dipping... I’m on such a high after my latest run on it, cleared up to the back end of Stage 4 with a nice high score which happily obliterates my mates score by 30 billion (bit of a rivalry with shmups... clumpy will recall) and nowhere near the 1cc really but getting better. It’s just so bloody exciting this game - bombastic and ridiculous, yet never overwhelming.
  2. So Progear It's great, but man is it hard. Even on the easiest settings, it's ridiculous in comparison to other Cave games (to me anyway) and I can't get too far before the old Continue? flashes up. Makes me wonder if the difficulty settings are actually doing anything to the game! ESP Ra.De Psi is the opposite and M2 made it genuinely accessible. I credit fed till the end of Progear and did enjoy it but it feels like light years away from something I'll be able to 1cc.
  3. Switch. Haven't played others. On Switch though at least you hit the direction to move your ship, can then go away, impregnate your girlfriend, support her through the incubation, be there for the birth, have a lot of sleepless nights and arguments leading to distance in your relationship, send your child off to school with tears in your eyes and then get back to your desk to see the ship actually move.
  4. Played a bit more Progear - it's absolutely fine, no stuttering or major lag issues. I'm no pro mind so your experience may vary. But I find Vasara Collection pretty much unplayable. I also thought Giga Wing was fine... I was playing handheld with a Hori Split Pad Pro. Both games are a real treat to add to the Switch shmup library! Thrilled. I really thought the games would be so much more expensive than they are, and the emulator options are pretty decent I think with difficulty, speed, rewind, display etc all nicely tweakable.
  5. Yeah I tried 1943 last night after the Direct and it seemed fine to me. Man am I excited to play Progear and Giga Wing!!!
  6. I also want to echo sentiments surrounding Neko Navy - that game is close to perfection for me. I absolutely adore it.
  7. Right, before I pull the trigger on Pack 3 to get Progear, the "reports of lag" are they from the shmup forums where a billionth of a second lag makes them cry and stamp their feet screaming at each other? For context, I find the Psikyo games (well I have Dragon Blaze at least) very playable. I do however find Vasera collection to have noticable lag. I'll probably buy it anyway, I mean heck it's a Cave game on Switch, last time I bought one of those, it cost me £60 for a Japanese import £11.99 seems a steal. *** edit *** I've bought it. Fuck it! No way am I missing ou
  8. I've been a bit quiet on shmups lately, instead I've been hooked on Mario 64. Not sure if this is a thread where we waffle about non-shmup things so I'll leave it there The itch will return... It always does
  9. IMMACULATE from the Clump
  10. Picked up Overpower, Rolling Gunner's DLC. Bit pricey eh? Very enjoyable mode, it is quite different and more like a twin-stick shooter, and the fact bullets are absorbed is strange and makes it considerably easier - I got a 1cc on Novice on my first go when tired and slightly inebriated. Onto higher difficulty modes methinks.
  11. How much was it? It's due here soon they said, wondering what the cost will be. I'll get it regardless, the dev deserves all the support in the world. I love Rolling Gunner.
  12. Oh it's definitely a me problem not a Celeste problem, I need to sit down at a time when I am not tired and can pay full attention but that kind of time is in short supply right now I'll try it again at some point, cheers.
  13. Great thread idea. Celeste, although I've not put too much time into it, I just start and within a few minutes of gameplay go "nope, fuck this" and it's off.
  14. Well I just finished moving house but I'm back and ready to hit a shmup sometime. - Black Bird in the Switch sale - listen to Clump, this game is immense. BUY IT - Progear coming, that's big news! Another Cave game on Switch. Dreading the price as it's in a 10-pack. - Clump - good work with Tengai... It's hard that game - I didn't get Gunbird 2 in the end, decided to focus on Dragon Blaze when the Psikyo bug hits me again. It's lovely. - I need to get back to ESP, and feel suddenly elated I spent insane dollar on the physical copy when it first came out
