Discuss anything about shooters (Shmups only please!) on any system
Got a taste for this, anyone know if it's region locked or free? :spock:
I just installed a DMS4 chip in my PS2, so I have been playing some Dodonpachi Daioujou lately.
That game is impossible to beat in it's entirety.:oh_no:
If you do not yet know about this do yourself a favor and watch the trailer:
Order it straight from the publisher here
I just thought I would share. I know... Its not a fucking CRT.. It works great though... And with scanlines emulated it looks pretty good as well. Anyone else use this method?
Cave's swan song on the Xbox 360, 'DoDonPachi: SaiDaiouJou Kan,' which marks the publisher's final game for Microsoft's 64-bit console. New to the home release of DDPS is a 16:9 vertical arrange mode, a spanking new animated introduction sequence, and a 3-player cooperative mode
I already have xbox version but not sure if I want to get PS3.......even though I love this game so much!!!! :)
Nyu Media, a small company based in england, has already brought a few doujin gems to the west.
They are bringing the Trilogy "Tale of Alltynex" to the west. They're trying to get greenlighted in Steam and even started a Kickstarter project.
The kickstarter was funded successfully in a day,...
AmazonJP is accepting pre orders for CAVE Shooting Collection :multi_co:
I finally modded a spare TG16 so I am trying to keep an eye out for reasonably priced shooters. Any recommendations would be great.
The ones I know about are
Lord of Thunder
Gate of Thunder
Gunhed / Blazing Lasers
R-Type 1 & 2
Ok so im new to the forum, but have been into shmups since the 80s and an avid collector of them since 97. I help run a barcade in Denver called the 1up and wanted to say that starting this next month im going to place a shooter there (of my choice) and have at least one there from now on. If the...
Is this Genesis game any good?
Extremely limited supporters edition preorders are up, the 3 Disc version is limited to only 300 copies worldwide!
And buyers of this version will get to beta test the game early!
Mine so far is probably the SNES. I feel like it just has a great line up of titles and the gameplay is usually quite smooth.
Dreamcast would be my second favourite platform. It hosts my favourite shmup of all time -- Mars Matrix.
Contra is my favourite run 'n gun series so far, though I...
Hey, guys! I recently acquired Ikaruga for the Sega Naomi, but there's a problem--it comes on upside down on my vertical cabinet.
I've already flipped that monitor once because somebody originally installed it upside down. I was wondering if anybody knew of a setting somewhere that would...
I haven't played shooters in years. I recently downloaded Dariusburst on my Vita, I bought it when it came out in 2009 - was it really that long ago??
I've unlocked the first ship, Burst Mode, and Mission Mode. I found out I need to beat Burst Mode to unlock the third Legacy ship.
But you can make fun of me anyway.. I thought this was relevant to this forum.
This game deserves more love. Play as a mech blowing up and slicing other mechs. Laser cannons, lock strafing shooting similar to Shocktroopers.
The only scans I could find online were for the flyer, these scans were sitting on an old laptop. Not the highest resolution, but if some one has...
I am big Aleste fan I will not lie. I pretty much have every game except Power Strike 1 & 2. I just recently acquired MUSHA. After all of the hype I feel a bit let down. I've been a huge fan of Robo Aleste and Space Mega Force. MUSHA is fun but feel I Robo Aleste is far superior. For some odd...
Finally, after all these years, I have found an original copy of the elusive Direct-X.
Released in 1998 by PYX. This game isn't even 10 mins long, but it's absolutely badass.
Watch the video for everything you'll want to know. :buttrock:
Hey guys, I'm looking for the dip switch settings for this game unless the natural behavior for the game is only to allow 1 credit before the game is over and to restart? This seems like a hardcore mode. Anyone have a manual for this and can tell me what the dip switch settings are? Thanks in...
I just got back into shmups, and just want to know what everyone likes. What are your favorites? New, old, horizontal, vertical, arcade, console, what ever. I'm a sucker for horizontal games like thunderforce, gradius, but I also have a blast with verts like dragon blaze, espgaluda.
In the latest Famitsu, complete with pricing.
Obviously this means a region-free release, while the 360 version was region-locked, great news if you ask me.
This was the leading reason I was planning to buy a Japanese 360, now I'm not so...
I have had this for a few years now and never could find out a clear answer on whether this was a boot or not. First red flag is the Raizing/8ing isn't screened near the Jamma connector. However the board is pretty much identical, with things that make it appear like a very early revision.
This looks pretty good, anyone played it?
Anyone up for a Viper Phase 1 score thread? Raiden in space.:cool:
and bought a Jap 360 with ketsui, Raiden 4 and Raiden Fighters ACES.
Why I need three xbox 360's in my house, I don't know, but that's how it's worked out. lol
Anyway, looking forward to building a small, but solid, collection of Jpn only 360 shmups
What do people think is the best arcade shooter out there for under $100?
This is a Hail Mary because most people think this game is shit...
I got a copy of star soldier 64 and I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out how the password system works. I don't have the manual because it was cart only. I thought it was for saving high scores but the game seems to have...
I'm a guy who just started playing Dimahoo with little shooter experience. I've been wondering if there is any advantage to multiple level charge up magic shots? What I mean is when you charge from red to blue to red again, is there any gain in power, or else any advantage in general?
Game is hard as hell (no pun intended), but good for a laugh.
Pay attention to the boss power up at ~3:00.
Cho Ren Sha 68k!
Post your high scores!
Windows version located here: :cool:
*NOTE* The Windows version has issues running on multi-CPU computers.
Any love for this great Irem shooter. I used to play this at the Cade all the time. Story goes that the team behind this became Nazca and created metal slug series before becoming part of SNK. The similarities between this and later slug games has been noted before, but this is a fantastically...
Dont hold back I can take it! :) I grew up playing Gradius on a Playchoice and Gradius 3 on my SNES. This got me hooked. I admit I am not the best at them but damn I love playing them even if I get my ass kicked!
That being said I continued to play GG GIV GV, Raiden Series, RS Ikaruga,...
Indie shmup from Psychotic Psoftware heading for a 2013 XBLA release.
Bit of a preview and chat: http://battleclubgaming.com/2012/10/10/power-up-preview-interview/
I'm curious about what titles people might be considering purchasing, or if any advice is needed for recommendations, etc.
Right now I'm bummed that I missed a dirt cheap Dragon Blaze PCB (sold my import PS2 ports a while back)...
I'm on the fence if I should buy Vasara, opinions have been...
