Pretty cool continuation of Galactic Attack/Layer Section.

Literally the 2nd best shooter ever made.

Honestly, a lot of Taito STGs in the 90s had pretty grim endings. Metal Black and G-Darius are prime examples.

>> No.6478075

Rayforce is the best vertical shooter in existence

>> No.6478095

I had Crisis for a few years, t.bh I never really mastered the scoring system. That game was kinda weird. Great OST of course.
I liked the level themes being based off of sentience states.

>> No.6478193

They're pretty cool shooters. The homing laser system is fun to use.
Dunno what they were on when they did RayCrisis' aesthetics.

>> No.6478201

RayCrisis looks amazing though

>> No.6478203

RayStorm's music fucking slaps.

Radiant Silvergun

>> No.6478254

Never really saw the appeal.

Gun Frontier was the superior vertical Taito shooter.

Is the PC version worth playing?

>> No.6478352

Great games, some of the best classic style vertical shooters and some of the most beautiful

>> No.6478754

It's the same shit as the PSX port
yes, but W10 will give to you a big NO

>> No.6478758

Port the phone version of Raycrisis to anything else you cowards at Taito/SquareEnix I know you can see this

>> No.6478765

Dude, that port is literally an PSX emulator cuz of how shit it runs on low-end phones

I have the entire series on my 7 years old phone and Raystorm & Rayforce runa smoothly

>> No.6478782

That port has the arcade version in it, without all the loading that the PS1 version had when you got to a boss or new zone.
They should really throw that on some new console along with Storm HD

>> No.6478791

I heard something about it having better sound and graphics than the PSX version

>> No.6478842

Maybe because the damn game is running in native resolution?

>> No.6478847

and that's a good thing, because fuck Hollywood style happy endings

>Ship is a computer virus operated by a woman
Ship operated by a Cyborg (probably a woman by words of the devs)

Taito devs are weird...

What's so weird here?

I could only really get into Rayforce/Layer Section/Galactic Attack. The other two just felt weird to play for me.

Why the Android port of RayCrisis runs like ass? RayForce & RayStorm runs butter-smooth but Crisis runs like trying to play Ridge Racer on MAME

Raystorm is one of the first PS1 games I owned, love it. One day I'm going to have to actually finish it. Who here prefers Gray 2 over 1?

Hell yeah, it did. This is my favorite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzzKo_K8K3c Is there a name for this genre of music? Jazz Techno? Mega Man 8 had it too.

Borrowed the US version of PS Raystorm from a friend long ago in the Playstation's infancy. Glad to have played, miss the long lost friend. Games are still enjoyable and a great junk bin find.

>> No.6481810

>Game gets ported to Android/IOS
>Doesn't include the extra ships from the PS1 port or the PSN remaster

>> No.6481867

Yea, Bargain Bin finds... Very funny. I'll be sticking with my 5 cent cd-r's unless the market shits it self. Which I honestly hope it doesn't. The Money is half the fun for me in pretty much any hobby.

>> No.6482090

Are you really expected to 1cc shmups?

I like Rayforce but I cant imagine 1icing it best I've done is 2cc.

>> No.6482107

Yes you are, it's a matter of practice though a 2cc won't give you a good idea of what the difficulty's like because the rank will drop so much that you'll practically be playing on easy mode. In Rayforce most of the difficulty comes from the last 2 stages, which are pretty hard but not impossible.

>> No.6482124

Man why are some of the more interesting PC ports either Japan or Europe only? Were burgerchads not itching to play Raystorm on their emachines?

>> No.6482169

PC was not rentable for them in USA cuz the FPS was the best selling games in the mid 90's

Quake & Duke3D god like sales are examples of that

>> No.6482175

>a great junk bin find.
is that you, john titor?

>> No.6482189

Have 1cc'd Rayforce. Tis probably tied as my favorite shmup of all time with Cho Ren Sha 68k. It's really a masterpiece, not just in the cool aesthetics and atmosphere but how balls to the walls aggressive it gets (on both player and enemy side) later on.

I've only played a little bit of Raystorm (have the taito legends collections), but it didn't seem quite as good. I heard there was some drift/inertia on the controls but I didn't notice it at the time...it was just a lot harder and I thought the scoring system made less sense when you could lock onto everything.

>> No.6482525

they are fun and two player mode is good

>RayForce gud
