I'm on system11 as well (same name but I've posted maybe 10-20 times in 4 years) but I don't play as much as I used to.

Although I'll probably start playing a lot more once the semester starts.

I've typically joined one of the SDA teams but I kinda don't want to this year since I don't want to spend a lot of time on this and my performance would be miserable. If there's an SSS team I'd maybe join it I guess. Could possibly rope in vopeju to fill space as well.

proposed team name: Hype the Core

The 30th. And don't worry about how well you do. I'm mostly shit at any game without the words "Mushihimesama" and "arrange" involved.

OK, well, I'm down to join this theoretical S3 team, but if we're going to do that we'd A) need at least 5 people and B) need to get all of this figured out (and registrations updated) within 3 days.

Alright, I've got vopeju on board, and we can either pick up TJB or I'm bugging a guy I know who posted here a long time ago (way before I ever did haha). I'll take captain I guess, unless someone else wants to?

Other stuff that has to be handled:
1) team name. I still can't come up with one that I like more than "Hype the Core" but if anyone else can I'd like to hear it.
2) week one voting. Trying not to be too biased but our choices are:

Battle Bakraid: dumbest game of all time. I kind of really hope it wins.
Strikers 1999: Psikyo game, so you know what you're getting into. Fast, two loops, lots of bullshit. A lot of people like Psikyo games in STGT because they're simple to pick up but if you play for more than a week you start to get mad at how stupid they are. (Gunbird2 and Dragon Blaze are cool games though. S99 not as much.)
Raiden Fighters (1): Also a fast game, and the one vorpal wants. I'm not too familiar with the mechanics but it shouldn't be too complicated and it's probably a bit easier as a game than Strikers and way easier to score in than Bakraid. (If Bakraid wins then the week is gonna be taken by some guy who's already learned at least one of the boss fights)

Team captain sends a vote before the week starts (preferably electoral college style, but I guess they could also just do whatever they want). I think we're doing this!

You don't want to play Bakraid. You really don't want to play Bakraid.

I'd go with Raiden Fighters, and yes the Arcade setting on the 360 version is the same as on a PCB. The game is fairly basic pick up medals, find secrets and shoot shit.

Strikers 1999 score relies on shotgunning an orb in the boss under heavy fire, and Bakraid is 50 times worse.

If you can't get your guy to join I'll do it, if MMP was any indication I can perform pretty well in competitive scenarios.

+1 for Raiden Fighters. Shmupmame shouldn't be too bad with a default usb polling rate.

As much as I love Raizing, Bakraid was a little bit too much for me. And I've had enough Psikyo like 4 years ago when all I did was play Strikers 1945+ at a local arcade while listening to the espgaluada 2 ost, it's not that I loved the ost, it's that I wished I was playing a better game.

Also I hope In The Hunt comes up or something, I've got a cabinet coming in Monday and the PCB coming over a bit later.

Max team size is 7. By my count we have:
spineshark
putf8
vopeju
rmz (Keres)
Jadin
syndrome (possible)

which is 6 so go ahead and sign up, we're good either way

Although if you're interested in serious competition you might wanna try and scout for a better team lol. I got top 10 as an individual player one year but I'll be playing like 1/8 as much this time. Which should be enough for top 50% overall.

And yeah, bakraid is terrible and would be even more terrible in this context since instead of learning how to play through the game or something the best way to get a relatively high score is to grind stage 1 boss until you can kill it with max multiplier, then stage 2 boss after that with the 4 lives you got on stage 1, etc. Not that it matters anyway because the 3 people who've spent time on this game in the past + sikraiken are gonna be top spots anyway hahaha

Also the music is like shitty 90s Muzak and the entire game just looks stupid for some reason, I don't understand at all

man wtf, Strikers 1999 ownssss, it's my favorite Psikyo shmup. Raiden Fighters 1 is awesome too

that said, I'm [probably] not participating in STGT because I'm not feeling up to the stress of having to play games I don't want to play for 5 weeks (S1999/RF1 excepted) when I'd rather be using my time on other things ;\

edit: although TCACTRM is short a final slot so I might end up filling it anyway in the event that I do feel like playing since sikraiken is a long-time internet buddy. Sorry SSS!!

I mostly just hate the loops. Loops in general are pretty stupid but in Psikyo games it feels like nothing but muscle memory that you can only build from dying to tons of insta-gibs. I don't know how people do it. I just really like DB because of the dragon shoot thing.

I also feel not-at-all betrayed considering I gave up a cushy spot on Team Sweet Tacos (SDA) to come here.

Sure why not. I pitched the idea to get people on SSS to get together and have some fun, rather than be super hardcore about the competition.

do it, I'll pass but play the games anyway and see how bad I am compared to everyone else

im not sure if I can play much anyway, my left hand is killing me from doing the claw while playing mh3rd so much

(ps I'm not very sirius when it comes to competition, much like darqs at the first sign of a struggle I give up, mmp was an exception because the winner got a sealed copy of dojblex, then some guy sniped 1st place and never came back to cave-stg)
