  1. Speaking of twin sticks, Satryn looks canny - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1677360/satryn_deluxe/ You can try the free version on itch - https://maybell.itch.io/satryn Blazend looks like it might be alright. Not even a tentative release date on that one - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1757440/Blazend/ klorets looks fun - https://www.freem.ne.jp/win/game/26832 I beat my score on BWD normal. Hell is hard! edit: got a blind clear on klorets, that's a lot of fun. Loads of scoring potential! There's the hardest ending done. Your score to beat. Yes, that's amazing fun, you have a rapid shot, a focus and a hyper that slows time. Enemies you kill while not hypering gives you green cash and you spend that cash while hypering and enemies killed during hyper, their bullets get cancelled into diamonds. You can hyper and cancel the bullets of all enemies so long as you have the cash to spend to do it, so it's all about choosing when to hyper and when not to. Don't break your back playing BWD with autoguard off, by the way. Your lives aren't worth more at the end like they are in blue wish resurrection. Found that out to my cost today! I think you got half as much again for each life on BWR, so I was disappointed when it was giving me the normal points for my lives
  2. Nex Machina is fab! Definitely jump on that if you don't have it! If you clear BWD normal with all 4 ships, you unlock another secret ship, one of the broads from eden's aegis.
  3. Yeah, it's very much more of the same, but yup, hook it up to my veins, easily one of the best games of the year. I talked to toimine on discord about the secret extend and he was very nice. He says you have to break all the parts of the midboss. He says there's a few things hanging out the back of him, one on the left and one on the right, that you'd miss unless you were looking for them. So you have to damage them after you do the turrets and the boss will go into a new nasty pattern after that. Then the extra secret pillar appears afterwards and the 1up is in there. You unlock a new ship when you clear the game, and once you clear the game with all three ships you unlock this extra one called "despair" and I was using it the other day, it's like inverted, you've got a really powerful rapid shot, and then when you focus you've got this really weak but really wide shot that does fuck all damage, so it's gonna be great for scoring, leaving things alive long enough to cancel more bullets and then switching to your rapid shot when things get hairy and you need to take things down more quickly. Not being able to focus and deal damage is a nightmare when shit hits the fan though! Sunny Tam has announced DU4 which is gonna be called Danmaku Unlimited: WYVER ULTRA DU2 was good, but DU3 was pretty boring, I thought, just hanging round down the bottom of the screen herding and grazing like some daft cow. At least DU2 had the mechanic where you built your hyper quicker the more risky you played. I hope he does something interesting with the scoring, or fucks off grazing. Grazing can be brilliant fun (Exceed 3rd Jade Penetrate Black Package, for example), but not the way he does it. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out! Steam page is up for Moon Dancer - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1790250/Moon_Dancer/
  4. I go a no miss on blue wish desire. Beaming! Look at this lad here - https://youtu.be/RQE67z8VaL0?t=723 He gets a secret extend on stage 3. I wonder how you do that, maybe you just have to uncover all the treasure up to that point, or maybe you have to do those two before it in order, left then right. That's worth another 10,000,000 if you carry it over the finish line!
  5. Demo has been added if you want to try before you buy - https://xxgameroom.booth.pm/items/3346605
  6. v/h/s/94 ***½ halloween 3 (rewatch (couldn't remember if it was good or not)) - ** the night house - **
  7. We're playing Hell Blasters for the shmup junkie caravan competition if you want to join in. There's my best run so far - https://streamable.com/nhxjb9 Blue Wish Desire is out! https://xxgameroom.booth.pm/items/3346770 Not free this time, but he deserves all the money. Says he's thinking about steam and itch, but booth is quick and painless for him so it's up there for now. I have a booth account because it was the only place to get this, which wasn't so good, so I bought it. There's you normal autoguard score to beat! Game is fantastic!
  8. Hell Blasters - 1cc, arcade, hard Whew! I don't think I've gotten an achievement that rare before!
  9. Hell Blasters is out now, is good. I died on the last boss - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1696200/Hell_Blasters/ Dev has added a vsync toggle and that has fixed the framerate bug at high refresh rates.
  10. What Ever Happened to Baby Jane - ***** Deliciously twisted and gently funny. Perfect.
  11. Ah right, sorry, I thought I was coming with the fresh eggs there. There were things I wasn't too keen on but it was so classy and well made and it kept you wondering what would happen next. Good stuff! I really liked the direction, gonna try one of the guys other films. Yeah, that's all fair comment to be honest. I still enjoyed it for what it was, but I can't argue.
  12. Fair play, they're gonna see what they can do at least. https://city-connection.co.jp/cotton/en/topics/#20211005 "We have confirmed that the following titles currently available on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 are experiencing input lag. ・Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute (package version) ・Cotton 2 Saturn Tribute (download version) ・Cotton Boomerang Saturn Tribute (download version) ・Guardian Force Saturn Tribute (download version) We are currently investigating this matter and plan to update each title on each console to improve the input lag. The timing of the update will be announced later. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for your patience."
  13. Recommended by someone on another forum, you should all get a kick out of this! I went in blind which i think is the best idea - https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/son_2021
  14. Haha! To be fair the games were laggy on the saturn to begin with and it's notoriously difficult to emulate because the system was needlessly complex, having 9 different processors, but they've definitely added a load of lag themselves which shouldn't be there. I'm not as down on city connection as most, I can only speak for the pc versions that I've played but I though their psyvariar release was really good, and despite the weird problems with some of the psikyo games which stem from them using the ps2 code rather than the arcade, they ran well. I don't know what the hell has happened here.
  15. I'll definitely try the pc versions when they come. The lag will be lower, but it's just the roms running in an emulator in a wrapper with extra lag, if it's not as good as current emulation options, there's absolutely no reason to buy these releases. Of course ten frames of lag isn't unplayable, you can get used to it, but you don't have to, and you shouldn't be sending the message that this is acceptable. Vote with your wallet.
  16. The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling - ***½ I had trouble reading Garry's writing and there were a lot of snippets from his journals shown and it may as well have been written in Russian! Would have been nice to have someone reading that out. Gilbert Gottfried would have been a good choice, he has a lightness of touch that would have suited the tone well.
  17. Yeah, played at 60hz today and that feels a lot better - https://streamable.com/cy4ye1 It's going to be the next shmup junkie caravan contest if you want to start practising!
