@meppi64 Thanks for playing. I really struggle with the sniper too. I've tried to get the hang of it in the main game but it just wasn't happening for me.

@Lroy Sorry you kept getting disconnected. I've been there before when playing with friends. Hopefully next time it'll be fine.

Anyway, I enjoyed that. I'm going to play some Outlast. I wish you lads good night.

Wow, you guys have been busy!

I just downloaded Danmaku Unlimited 3 this morning and it's wild! I wish I could have put in my order for my HORI stick, I need that extra precision for tap dodging. It sure is giving me some Danmaku Unlimited + Dodonpachi SaiDaiOuJou vibes, which is awesome! I gotta go to work, though, so I'm going to be a little restless during my shift tonight until I get to play again tomorrow morning.

@Lroy @Wasilweski I was thinking one of the Metal Slugs as well. I've been having a time trying to duplicate some magic, so it may not be me choosing the next game (but there's always a chance for last minute scores )

@RetroGamerAndrew Oh, great news! I've been wanting to get the NEOGEO book since I've heard about it but money's been tight up until recently. Thanks for the heads up and feel better, man!

@OorWullie @Meppi64 It is even kicking me off Turf War now. Must be a gremlin in the machine somewhere my end. Oh well, was good fun to play with you all tonight. Until the next time 🍻

Wanted to give it another go but it seems like the connection problems keep acting up.
We might have to get a usb internet cable like the Wii U had.

@OorWullie Hehe, indeed!
I'm gonna call it a night as well as the headache certainly isn't getting any better.
I'm pretty sure my new acid rainbow shirt put you off your game a little today compared to yesterday, so I'll have to keep that in mind and wear it again when we meet on the Spatterfields.

Anyway, another great night, despite the connection problems. Goodnight everyone!

edit: Also, who wanted more beat em ups on the Switch?

@OorWullie @Lroy

Thanks guys, just got off work now. I was glad to see MK8 worked so well, considering I’m in LA and you guys are in Europe. But I had no lag or noticeable problems. Sorry to hear Splatoon was a mess.

That was fun, We got to do it again soon.

Men, Danmaku Unlimited 3 is amazing. Did a couple of runs between yesterday and today and I totally dig the style and the gameplay (which is no surprise since I adored DU2 firsthand). The thing I love the most however is the OST, no doubt about it. Blankfield songs sport a killer blend of hardcore-prog-alt-metal that fits just perfectly the mood and the flow of the game.
Didn't try TATE mode yet but I'm sure it will be spectacular.

8.99 euro really well spent!

The original fire has died and gone, but the riot inside moves on.

@meppi64 Yes! I love BAD DUDES... just hoping these Data East games come to the UK eShop as well as North America.

You’ve talked me into it. As soon as I finish work tomorrow I’m gonna buy Danmaku!

Is there a caravan mode?

@wasilewski AFAIK there isn't any online leaderboard, which is quite a bummer... can't confirm it 100% tho

I know this thread is becoming a danger to my wallet, lol! I've now lost count of the amount of eShop games I've bought already in 2018 ☺️

@Lroy And it's not going to get any better I'm afraid.

Next week we'll get Sol Divide by Psykio. And while being far from the best Psykio game, I will be picking it up once more.
We'll also get World Heroes 2 Jet on Neo Geo and frickin' Moon Patrol on ACA!
It's been since the PSone days that I have played Moon Patrol on one of those Atari/Williams/Midway compilations. Didn't think we'd see this one again. Loved it back in the day in the arcades.

Sol Divide is pretty cool, I’m gonna have to give it another few turns on MAME before I make a decision though. Moon Patrol is a nice surprise!

Moon Patrol?! I haven’t thought of that game in decades. Very cool!!

I really hope there’s a global high score feature for Danmaku 3.

@wasilewski Yeah, it's a pretty weird one. Certainly not a standard shoot em up.
Just don't go in expecting a classic style shooter and look at it as something of an experiment.
Some things work, some don't. This one is a bit of both sadly.

@Agent721 Yeah, I'm really hyped for Moon Patrol myself. Much more than for the other games actually.
I always tend to forget that it was an actual Irem game and not a Midway one. Always seeing the Midway logo in the arcade messed that up for me. lol
From the looks of it, Danmaku doesn't have online leaderboards. At least, none of which I could find. And I doubt they would hide such a feature away in such a way that it's easy to miss.

I don't want to be a downer here everyone, but this leaderboard thread is lost within pages and pages of non-chase game discussion here. The thrill and excitement of visible chase data is completely obstructed, so much so that It doesn't even look like any of us are running this week. This isn't going to help our numbers and definitely isn't going to help new players to the thread.

I don't want to come off confrontational. Just an observation.

@Qualitybeats Ha! Ha! I'm as guilty as anyone of going off topic. ☺️

Take onboard your point. Although I don't want to lose the nice sense of community we have built up either. Perhaps we could take these chats to an arcade/retro community thread?

You read my mind.
Either that or we can rechristen this tread to that as it's about 90% that anyway.

@meppi64 Actually your right. Perhaps we should just rename this thread, lol!
