    As Turfy and Mr. Panda mention, Deadly Edge, for X68K is ridiculouts. TeddyKGB showed it to me this weekend. It's ridiculous. The bullet patterns are so insane and the screen basically becomes a wall of bullets at times. At leas when you play stuff like Ikaruga or Mars Matrix, you can see that there is a clear way to navigate the patterns, you just need to practice in order to do it. With Deadly Edge, forget it. There's no way in hell the developer expects you to navigate those bullets. You basically have to take hits on your shield (if you've got on), or just blow up and respawn.

    Either that is some kind of "easy" setting, or Jim has a fucked up image of the game on his X68k.

    Yea, that is NOT the game we played. The one we were playing had suicide bullets spewing out of everytging, even the rocks you would shoot. There literally was 70+ bullets on screen at any given time, and not even in a fun way.
    No, just no.

    you can crash your weapon into a boss (or any enemy) and it will take damage until it dies. trick is to not cross the ships hitbox.

    My personal white whale is R-Type. I don't think I've ever made it past stage 4. The last level of Aldynes was also pretty brutal but it's at least beatable.

    What do you mean by weapon? Any attachment-type power up? The front of your ship? The options?

    Are you literally pushing the ship into the bosses? I can't find anything on this.

    Console I'd say Rayxanber II for me. I have never cleared the 4th stage and only made it to the boss of the level 3 or 4 times but I keep coming back. Arcade maybe Tatsujin. I don't think I'd ever have the patience to learn that game

    Nobody has mentioned it but the original Raiden Fighters busts my balls pretty hard in spots. Only made it to the 4th stage maybe 10 times in my life and have played it more than any other PCB I've ever owned. The third stage boss that is a giant ship will have a gun come on the screen by a few pixels and get you with a sniper shot all the time. So frustrating.

    Yeah, Blazing Star w/o autofire is insane, too. Using Windina can help a bit, but you'll still set your fingertips on fire ;).
