Ah yeah thanks, I didn't notice that it wanted me to evolve at the end.

Genetos is pretty damn fun though, musics good too <:

Will definitely try to improve my score tomorrow

I got a message on XBL asking me to come

so here I am

I've got a 262,xxx,xxx score in Futari 1.5 Original but I won't update the first post until I get the exact number. But I'll put in my Ultra arrange score, which I haven't seen anyone on shmups or cave-stg beat (yet)

EDIT: Also, I added commas to the first post. Just because Cave doesn't use them doesn't me you get to be lazy. emot-colbert.gif

This looked like it flopped but oh well >:

I put up a score for futari original, I guess if I practiced the bosses a bit I wouldn't always end up at the last boss with no lives left

So after playing some Esp2 for a bit, it has come to my attention that I'm pretty horrible at all of Cave's shooters at least, and maybe most shooters in general. I like the games enough to buy them and play them a bit but it's getting to the point where I'm wondering why I bother doing so.

I'm lucky to get to Stage 3 in Esp2 on the regular arcade version of the game. I rarely pass Stage 1 with all three lives. At that rate, I'll need to play the game for at least a year straight or something before I can even think about doing something like a 1cc. A few people at system11 have already 1cc'd Arrange mode; for me on playing that, the first three stages of that are cake but as soon as I hit Stage 4 I get raped.

Some people say to watch videos to help learn how to play the game but to me that's like reading a FAQ on an RPG to the point of dependency where you just follow someone else's instruction set. The enjoyment which I still have out of the games so far is figuring out how to do things on my own, but that doesn't prevent me from becoming totally infuriated by having a good stage run lead up to dying twice at the boss within the first 20 seconds because I made some stupid mistake.

Anyway sorry I needed to type this somewhere. Maybe I'll put some Esp2 scores up once I can get the extend on Stage 1 in BL like everyone else seems to already have figured out.

edit

Oh yeah, forgot to mention:

That was me. I didn't know it was specifically 4chan related. Sorry. Whoever put that picture up can take it down now or whatever.

edit 2
Oh the picture is on imageshack - ok I'll just remove it myself.

I suck at shmups right now too, but hopefully ESP2 will alleviate that a little bit when it finally gets here.

Espgaluda 2 is probably one of caves last shit-hard games, so don't feel bad about sucking at it, I do too >: My copy came in yesterday though and it really is a great game, just has a bit of a steep learning curve for a cave game imo

put up a more recent futari original score too, I've been spending more time learning ultra so whenever I play original now I get WAAAAYYY too cocky

So thanks to Microsoft's sale on 360s I can play Mushi now. smile.gif I've only been playing Arcade and Arrange Original mode so far, and trying to figure out the scoring system. Is there somewhere I can read up on it?

For arrange original it seemed like I scored higher when the gauge on the bottom left was at 9999, plus Palm would shoot his laser as well, so I basically left it there and got 1.2 billion by the end of the game.

This thread has some good explanation about Mushi Arcade mode.

Their thread on Arrange mode has nothing of value quite yet. You want to have both gauges at 9999 so that you can activate the hyper shot and cancel everything on the screen while the gauges deplete.

So next time I make it to stage 5 of Black Label God I'm going to remember to save the replay. Score's uploaded to Live though (1.2 billion)

Stage 1 ultra can go to hell. 2-4 aren't nearly as bad.

Also played novice mode because that's apparently what people are playing here. Top 20 in original/maniac.

AC 6 is the fakest ace combat ever. the whole series started going downhill after 4 which is pretty much the best video game ever made.

yeah I heard from a lot of people that the PS2 ones are the best, but AC6 is the first one I played and it's fun to blow up stuff. (Also I'm borrowing that flight stick from jason and I imagine it's not that fun without it). I'm probably like those kids who played FFX as their first final fantasy and love it

Speaking of shmups and competitions, are there enough people on system11 (and up for it) for an entirely SSS team?
