New Strikers game announced.
>City Connection and Zerodiv have announced Strikers 2020, a new entry in the Strikers shoot ’em up series that began with Strikers 1945 in 1995
did not see that coming but alright. Also shmup thread I guess.
I want a shmup that actually does something new and refreshing instead of just cranking up the difficulty
and then cranks it up anyways
Psikyo is somehow not dead now? Or is this just some parasitic vampire corporation profiting off someone else's IP?
>Psikyo is somehow not dead now? Or is this just some parasitic vampire corporation profiting off someone else's IP?
The guys behind this did some Switch ports of some of the Psikyo games, and also consist of some ex-Psikyo stuff. Hopes up for this one.
I am a big fan of a lot of other manic shooters from the Raiden Fighters series to Dimahoo to Cho Ren Sha 68K. But I have always had a very difficult time getting into Psikyo games for some reason. They just feel really frustrating to me, even when I can get over the insta-laser shit they sometimes put on bosses.
Plus their soundtracks have always been boring as hell. Probably some of the dullest music in a genre known for games with amazing music.
Also post you're Strikers rankings.
For me, 1945 II > 1945 > 1945 III.
Wasn't a fan of tech bonuses, the planes, or the modern aesthetics of the third game very much. My favorite Psikyo overall though is Gunbird 2, if this turns out good I hope they do a GB3.
>muh static bosses and fast bullets
into the garbage it goes!!
for me it's 怒首領蜂 大往生 .
can't be good at both
very low score relative to good raiden players
again very low score relative to good doj players
Regardless, a person can't clear either of these games unless they're at least "good", and he cleared both.
a scrubby clear doesn't make you good, it's literally the first stage of beginner mode
DoJ and Raiden 2 aren't scrubby clears m8.
Cavefag pls go. Your games are shit. Except for Dangun Feveron.
raiden 2 clear is okay, DOJ is much easier.
Did you just imply that CAVE doesn't have static bosses?
That's amazing that he did that. He played some video games real good. You should go ask to suck his dick on Twitter or something. Does he have a Twitch? You could subscribe and then he might say your name. You'd literally be BFFs at that point.
The second loop is what makes DoJ such a hard clear.
Raiden II loops infinitely.
It was """just""" a 1-All in the video, but even that is challenging.
The point is every time some CAVEfag tries to claim that difficulty is comparable because "muh 2nd loop" or "muh autistic secret final boss", they need to be reminded that games like Gradius III and Raiden II don't just loop once. They loop over and over and over and get harder every time.
Well obviously nothing is going to be harder than just playing forever, just saying that the second loop of DoJ is hardly a cakewalk. I'm not saying it's on par with trying to loop parodius for 12 hours straight or something.
Those games are shit though, and when you play DOJ for score the difficulty is basically limitless.
Either play for score or stop playing shmups, flailing around trying to get a scrubby 1cc is newb tier (even 2nd loops)
Are there any other Shmups out there like Caladrius Blaze that allow you to hold a ton of weapons at once instead of just regular shot/concentrated shot? It was really fun having to figure out what weapon was ideal for the situation, It reminded me of Classic FPS like DOOM in a way. Also giving you lewds of the bosses as a reward for gettin gud at beating them was a nice touch.
Radiant Silvergun and the NA version of Daioh. There's also the Thunder Force games if you're willing to play a console game, and Zero Oranger if you're gay.
But yeah, Caladrius Blaze is surprisingly great.
Radiant Silvergun starts you out with a ton
In Einhänder and Strania you can only carry a limited amount of weapons that's dropped by enemies, but the fun comes from being able to juggle them as the situation requires
When are we gonna get a Space Invaders Extreme 3 or a Space Invaders Extreme 2 PC port
They'd probably just fuck it up with DRM like every other PC "port" they do these days.
The only shmups I've ever played are on the SNES and holy shit they're hard and cheap as fuck. I can't even beat the second level on UN Squadron. I don't think these games were ever meant to be beaten. They just exist to waste some poor kids time until the next game comes out.
Play Pop'n TwinBee and come back.
As long as they don't use denuvo I don't really care, I just want SIE2 to not be trapped on the DS
And I'd prefer it to not be trapped on Steam. Luckily my 3DS still plays DS games just fine.
>And I'd prefer it to not be trapped on Steam.
and it wouldn't be since piracy is a thing.
Why not use a DS emulator at that point?
because I want working leaderboards and remastered music like what SIE1 got
I'll shove a laser up your core, nigger.
How the fuck do I git gud at arcade anything?
I already read that a couple years ago, is there anything more specific to the game?
You asked about arcade gaming in general, that guide is all you need for theory. Rest is just practice and time to develop muscle-memory and correct vision. Most newbs don't know where to look when they play shmups. Also copying replays.
Watch replays, copy them.
Oh I wasn't asking about how do I gitgud at arcades in general, I was asking about how do I gitgud at any crimzon clover arcade mode
idk anon, maybe try playing it more and drawing conclusions from your mistakes.
The best tip I can give is don't look at the bullets, look at the space between the bullets, you will see escape routes open up before your very eyes that you would never see before. That revelation improved my survivability in Shmups significantly. I still have to memorize the last two stages in most Shmups though as they're pretty much designed that way to milk as much quarters as possible.
>tfw a new Radirgy comes out next month
Cave needs to release more games on Steam. This list is pathetic.
for action games it's amazing how shmups are so sleep inducing and can lull you into making simple mistakes out of sheer boredom
CAVE needs to do more actual fucking PC ports so that they can stop boxing other developers into DRM bullshit with their immense influence.
I wish M2 would release their fancy arcade ports on PC
Just buy a Switch, 3DS, and PS4 in one huge bulk order. :^)
and I wish G.rev would port over more of their games to the PC.
God I just want a Kokuga HD with online co-op
when will cave get out of gacha hell?
very few people can convince themselves that shmups are fun, so gacha is more stable in the long term
that makes no sense; I suck at shmups and I find them fun
you can suck and still convince yourself, not related to skill.
what is a fun genre for you ? grinding stats and farming shit so that a game poses no challenge whatsoever ?
M2 want to maintain their brand of perfectionist ports. With PC they said they have to keep in mind many multiple hardware configurations which would take a lot of time and special PC-focused expertise they don't have to get 100% accurate. They even put an Armored Police Batrider port on hold just because they couldn't find a way to recreate some things 100% accurately from the original.
They just worked with konami on the castlevania collection, and that came over to PC
This is frustrating
>They just worked with konami on the castlevania collection, and that came over to PC
Isn't the castlevania collection garbage on all platforms?
What's going on with that game M2 was doing with Hiroshi Iuchi? Was it cancelled?
I don't know who Hiroshi is, but are you talking about the Aleste game maybe?
They've said that they've got the gameplay side of things all worked out basically, except that they need to find someone to do the graphics.
They've survived long before they had a western market, I can't imagine they need a lot of shekels to do it. I just want Ketsui.
You may be thinking of the Konami Collection, which was handled by Hamster and is garbage.
idk but if you figure it out let me know
lol jarpigs, amirite /shmupg/?
>what is a fun genre for you
games where you dont repeat the same 5 levels in the exact same way and copy-monkey is a viable strategy
Excuse me anon, the term is Shoot Them Downs (STDs).
Stop trying to force that shitty cuckchan tier meme
Not until it stops making you mad.
thanks for the chuckle, lmao
>mad maxine literally having a nervous breakdown over banter on a screen
Actual horror elements.
Umm… can /bmupg/ fuck off?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Suck my dick fag.
Ah nvm, that's the treasure game. I'm pretty sure it's never gonna happen despite what they say about the gameplay side of things being complete.
WHERE'S MY DODONPACHI SAIDAIOUJOU, YOU RICE-EATING FUCKS
I just want my robo-plane waifu, is that too much to fucking ask?
Speaking of ports, when is Qute going to bring Ginga Force to PC? Probably never ever, and a Xbox 360 emulator is never going to happen
So, what happened to CAVE and their PC releases? Been out of the loop for 2 years and nothing has changed that much, their latest game is still DoDonPachi Resurrection so far.
Why would you use emulated game when there is a native PC version which also might get better options like high resolution? It's like saying why do you want DOS games to work on modern systems when you can use DosBox. It's always better to have native games for PC unless developer fucks it up.
>when there is a native PC version
Because it's not a native PC version when it's forcefully attached to cancer like Steam.
YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.
Yousuke Yasui is so good, he's got all my favorite remix tracks on SuperSweep releases for other game OSTs.
My nigga. Have some more Yasui music I webm'd a while ago.
>Isn't the castlevania collection garbage on all platforms?
It is, just like arcade collection. Those collections are emulator packaged with ROMs. Can't even remap control, the shittiest ROM collection so far, not even SF30th anniversary collection was as terrible, though it's a piece of shit too.
>forcefully attached to cancer like Steam
The only meaningful thing it's actually attached to without your incompetent tech bullshit is Windows or in some circumstances Linux system. Steam doesn't change the fact that a native Windows/Linux software which can also use better potential of your real modern hardware is better than emulation, something what actually tries to imitate different piece of hardware and/or operating system and thus the emulator itself is trying to utilize your hardware to imitate another hardware, resulting in an emulated game using more resources, the biggest downside is accuracy and in some cases hardware can be weak, hence a game designed for it usually is dumbed down. This is very true for handheld consoles. Do you know why people play multiplats on stronger hardware? Because even they're not retarded like you to realize that in most cases those versions are usually superior on stronger hardware compared to handheld consoles, for example.
You can hate Steam all you want, but please don't spew such bullshit about emulation being superior to software which works on PC hardware natively. This is simply ridiculous. You don't emulate Steam games unlike you do consoles which have the worst kind of protection by the way: locked hardware, but I guess you're totally fine with this. The only exception when emulation is good is when developer is too retarded/lazy to make proper PC port of their games or when there is no better alternative, otherwise the only software superior to native personal computer software is the one which has no copy protection or DRM.
>WHERE'S MY DODONPACHI SAIDAIOUJOU, YOU RICE-EATING FUCKS
I'm still just waiting for Daifukkatsu to drop below $10 like the piece of shit that I am
Alpha Mission II is the bee's knees
Dragon Blaze is too hard with Rob. Should I try someone else or kill myself?
When's Psikyo Collection Vol 3? I need more Strikers on my Switch.
Espgaluda and Esp. Ra. De when?
The ESP's are Cave's worst shumps, though…
Ra.De is fucking retarded, yeah. But Espgaluda is the only CAVE game I've played without a complete shitballs scoring system.
What did you think of Galuda II?
Is it emulated in MAME yet?
i liked the music…
>Ra.De is fucking retarded
Legitimately curious, why do you say that?
It's incredibly awful, stupid scoring system.
Yes, all SH3 Cave games are, though the slowdowns aren't 100% accurate.
No unless you consider Steam itself DRM.
Oh neat a scroll n shootie on GOG for a change. Wonder how well this runs in Wine.
75% boss milking, 25% stages. Watch any highlevel replay.
There was a bunch of people saying Joker Jun bullied/called favors in the team to take over the production. I thought he was getting memed but idk it seems plausible.
It's okay when Japs do it.
>gradius does not even exist in the minds of normals anymore
I wouldn't have voted for it anyways but still
I would have, what's your actual favorite Konami series?
Honestly I don't know. I voted for Contra because it was losing miserably and Hardcorps is amazing, but also I really like Castlevania X68000/Bloodlines/Rondo, and enjoyed MGS1-3 a lot.
Goemon is the best series on that list. Contra and Castlevania are also pretty great, but with Contra you have trash like the PSX games, and with CV you have trash like SotN and its rehashes.
Goemon wasn't spared from shitty PS1 releases, Konami published a lot of mediocre games for the ps1.
Oedo, Shin and Akogingu were decently playable at least.
I'll give you Kuru Nara Koi though. That game is bad.
Anyone have the latest download & play shmupmame? I lost my file a while ago.
shmupmame is outdated shite. use retroarch or groovymame or even vanilla mame instead
Raiden 5 on sale on steam rn if anyone cares.
>check the kickstarter page
>Unified Leaderboards are happening and japan is getting a physical release outside of the kickstarter
Raiden IV sale for $1.50 on GOG right now.
Raiden III too, actually.
I'm probably gonna back just for a digital copy, if it ends up as being as half as good as Final 1 I'll pick up a copy of the non-kickstarter physical release
The actual people who invented and developed the good R-Type games are gone from the industry and never coming back. Let it go already, anon.
I'm not getting it under the premise that's it's a new R-type, merely that it is a new R-type Final
Apparently they're trying to get the original OST guys, at least.
I don't see Oh!Gi/Ishida or Hiyamuta mentioned anywhere, so we'll wait and see what they actually mean by that.
