Been playing Seibu Keihatsu stuff lately, Raiden DX, Raiden Fighters, Viper Phase 1, etc. For some reason I slept on these games for a long time while enjoying more brightly colored and frantic stuff from Cave, but I'm quite enjoying these now.

I just escaped 1942 (Capcom Arcade Stadium).

It devolved from limiting credits to credit feeding to using the rewind, which is something I have never done in any game. The game is way, way too long, and I think the poop flavored icing on top are the squadrons of power up planes that crisscross on the later bonus stages and can easily catch you unaware and not fast enough.

I'm curious to see the evolution of this series, as I don't think I've played any of the others, and I had only casually wasted quarters on this one in arcades decades ago.

I was playing some 1942 via the Capcom Arcade Cabinet on PS3 last week, actually. Same gripes, along with the....music? Sound design? It's hard to listen to. Make sure to give 1944: The Loop Master some time, though. I've had a great time with that one these last few years.

Lately I've been chipping through Andro Dunos as I've never really given the game much time. Much fun, and solid difficulty until stage 5 where things go ape shit. lol.

Rotated the monitor to Tate in my Dynamo HS1 today as well so I could install my RayForce PCB. Been playing that one a LOT this year on my supergun set up, so I wanted to give the board a permanent home for a while. So I'm sure I'll be playing this even more. Best is a 7cc so far.

Been sinking most of my spare time into Dodonpachi on the Saturn. I really don't understand why this port gets some much hate. The voice effects are off in a few places, but other than that it's great fun, and I really enjoy the "Saturn Version"... I had the PlayStation version for a very long time, but can't say as I enjoyed playing it as much as this.

I know neither port is 100% accurate, and especially looked down upon by the PCB spergs, but I'd thoroughly recommend the Saturn game to those who aren't emotionally involved in their Cave fixes.

I started back up on DDP DOJ this weekend. God I love this game. It's so intense. To me it's about as far as a shooter can go with difficulty, any more and it's way over my head.

Ketsupachi.
Might be top work from Cave for me, save Steep Slope Sliders, and Uo Poko.

Eh, I like what I like. 🤷

Strikers and Cotton 2.

I grow more appreciative of the Strikers series each time I dig into one of them. Can't get past stage 5, but i'm getting close.

Nice Mike, yeah I really like the Strikers series. I had the Strikers 45 port on the PS1 it was great I need to see if there is a compilation on the 360 of these as it's the most current system I have now so may be out of luck.
