You won't be disappointed, it's great!

Lies :lol:

You were right on so many other games (particularly those involving huge, stompy robots), so I was shocked when I realised you liked this piece of pish so much. It's a dull game hiding behind a fun interface. And sadly, fun interfaces do not the game make.

Well that just looks like the best game ever! Is it?

I get the feeling that if it was in english (or just in a language one understands) it would be alot more enjoyable. It seems like it has lost if you dont understand the language, like the upgrading robots and finding peices for robots.

This PC game is a free to the public (never been released commercially), but is just like most CAVE shooters like Dodonpachi Dai Ou Jou. I love setting this up to my projector (i know its cheating a bit) and X-arcade controller. Bullet hell fun!

Download (go to Game in the left menu)

After going to Game in the left menu and choosing download, what should happen? Gaming goodness is right in front of me but it's all in Japanese and I down't know what to do ;)

Rhyme Rider Kerorikan. Rhythm action platformer with a strange tilted camera angle.

Soruban Gu Fun. Puzzle game. With a witch.

Engacho! Probably the best puzzle game featuring a flying arse.

San Goku Shi. Like every other San Goku Shi game, I haven't a fucking clue. Seems like a strategy game.

That's not just any robot! That's fucking Gaogaigar and it has a habit of pwning people (in the face).

Like a lot of the games listed in this thread, Mecha MG is not one to give its goodies away lightly. It is a good game but not an overtly accessible one (by myopic Western standards at least).

Really? It didn't seem particularly inaccessible to me (well, once I'd looked up what the levels wanted me to do, in some cases), just too simple - the levels themselves generally erring on the wrong side of dull.

If I want big stompy robot combat I think I'll stick with ACE2 for the foreseeable future (still relatively simple, but regularly challenging and with awesome robots. And Gundams too, but I guess you can't have everything... :))

If you're a fan of doujin or free J-shoot 'em up demos/games in general, Afterbirth's Indie Games thread has quite a few, as does ShootTheCore (well, the latter actually has a lot of Vector links, but still...)

As for me, I'm currently enjoying Dotechin (aka Flying Nice Guy), an Enterbrain shooter that constantly fills the screen with hundreds of small enemies, allowing for huge kill-counts and non-stop blasting. It's pretty mindless, but (personally at least) there aren't many other freebie shooters I've played that are quite like it.

Is there any way to get that Blue Wish game to work with a joystick? I can't seem to get the DOA4 stick working with it ^_^

It works fine with x-arcade joystick. i dont know about any other sticks.

The levels are pretty varied after the first ten or so, of which those are meant as a tutorial (so they are obviously pretty simplistic). It gets pretty involved fairly quickly after that too.

As for ACE2 it is a very good game but it does verge on the side of never ending combat. There's very little mission objective variation compared to the far more complex original.

namco x capcom is quite text heavy for the actual story.

in the actual game i got used to it quite quckly. its all just moving characters around and choosing attacks. i found it pretty simple in strategy terms, and quite hard to actually lose a battle. it does take a very long time though, but its great seeing all those different characters come together.

initial D is another great import. one of my favourite games ever.

hardly obscure, but it does divide opinion.

also available on psp, but the ps2 version has more tracks and story modes which follow the manga

Yep, Initial D is brilliant. Probably the best driving game Sega have ever made. I'd kill for a 360 port of the latest revision, but if it sees a port anywhere it's most likely the PS3. That's four hundred quid I can do without spending that will definitely get spent.

Initial d for PS3 would be a part justification for the £420 i've spent on a japanese launch machine. :angry:

£420 and currently only one ps3 game in my collection (Railfan). :(

This is the only Japanese game I have that's not been mentioned already. I picked it up at random at an airport in Japan, pretty much on the strength of that awesome spaceship, and the fact that it was a fiver, or something. It's completely unintelligable, although I've a suspicion that part of the game involves managing a school timetable. Lovely art though.

it would be the only justification i'd need. i bought a psp predominantly because of initial d.

a port of the new arcade version would sell me a ps3 for sure.

:angry:
