Delta is pure crack and will kick your ass but you'll come back and get a bit further each time. Armalyte is great also.

Enforcer is another great shmup which was the last thing Manfred Trenz ever did for the system, plays a lot like the shmup levels from Turrican 2.

LED Storm I always loved and for a while was the only way to play the 'Rally 2011' version with transforming cars and entirely different powerup systems. Plays great and I prefer the music, but the arcade versions may be preferable to some.

ActRaiser 2 is hard because your character sucks dick, he swings his sword in a puny little streak that barely hits a foot straight in front of him instead of a triumphant full-extended arc. Some hazards are only avoidable by gliding which controls like powersliding molasses and will 9 times out of 10 careen you straight into some other obstacle if you don't jerk back and forth like a retard.

>Actraiser sequel
There are two sequels.
Actraiser 2 (SNES) is exclusively the action part
Solo Crisis (Saturn) is exclusively the simulation part

The action part was always floaty trash and you can tell Quintet gave up on that.

As for the plot behind Solo Crisis, it's very minimal and gameplay-driven. The world has an overworld and an underworld. Those corrupted by Satan into sin became monsters who speak a different tongue so that God's word (spoken by the overworld denizens) doesn't reach them, so they speak a cryptic language (game has a dictionary that fills over time).

You can command your units like a turn-based SRPG to build houses, barricades, defend, fight, and you have to protect your HQ and destroy the enemy HQ on the underside. You can't see the underside until your units reach a portal there, then warp to the underside and continue marching to the enemy HQ. You will occasionally encounter enemies you can fight and occasionally convert on your side. Not all units can fight (women tend to be care takers for example).
You also have divine interventions to add concave and convex land formations (that WILL affect the underside), rain (will flood holes and drown any units there), lightning, devastating earthquakes.

Some say it's an Actraiser "spritual successor" but honestly it's a sequel in all aspects but name. If there's someone interested who can nihongo, I can implement even a partial menu translation.

>> No.7126389

The enemies are sponges. It feels like it was designed to play on easy because you can actually down thrust enemies while landing on platforms instead of the enemy surviving and damaging you. And it's actually fun on easy.

If I'm a retard feel free to shit all over me /vr/os, maybe I fucked something up, but basically it looks like the new and improved fightcade is a step back from what I was used to. And my old emulation PC slogs in net battles. No problems with the old version of fightcade, all I want to do is play some third strike online. Any other matchmaking services I could use for this purpose? It's been a long time since I was on anything other than fightcade. Am I overlooking some way to run the previous Fightcade1 client? Why would they force this "improvement" on the community when it's a step back in so many ways?

>> No.7125858

Yeah the new fightcade is trash but at least it supports more arcade boards than the old one, e.g. konami, taito, etc. And no they made it impossible to log in with the old client.

Even old fightcade was bad, catering
to metagamers/cheaters in the FGC/3rd world and naming/focusing the project on fighting games when it could and should be about playing arcade games in general online.

Still a lot more healthy than the shmup community, more play to win rather than for score.

I'm always jealous of posts like these. I was a stupid kid, didn't know anything about consoles. I asked mom for one several times, but there was this bullshit local myth about consoles ruining tvs that the parents used to avoid buying them. She thought it would kill the TV. I was a dumb motherfucker, so I didn't ask for a console again. I had self-esteem issues. Parents had money to buy every console on release. I didn't have good friends, no girls. I'm getting into gaming now that I'm 23, and it kills me, knowing how much fun I could've had as a kid. Not a single console growing up, man. I'd just go to gaming stores and play the demo kiosk consoles and look at game boxes, read the backs and look at screenshots. I wish my parents were more in touch with reality. They're old, and I always thought and acted like a geezer because of this upbringing. I grew up playing with physical bricks and action figures and reading century-old books in the fucking information age. It's really shit, it's like growing up poor without being poor. Years of my life, wasted. Holy fucking shit. I really am a dumb motherfucker. Having old parents sucks. They taught me everything a 1950's kid should know. It's like being retarded with a sound mind. I love them, but this is bullshit.
