Re: The Official WTF are YOU playing right now thread

@zinger Despite some teeth grinding moments I am enjoying Tiger Road. I am getting close to a clear of the first loop, I just have to keep at it. break/ I picked up an STV motherboard and Soukyugurentai recently and have been jamming on that as well. Such a bad ass game. I'm gonna chime in some more...

Re: The Official WTF are YOU playing right now thread

Man, the learning curve in that game is so mean... it's hailed as one of the great Capcom classics, but it certainly isn't as easy to get into compared to the Makaimuras or Black Dragon. I never got very far. One thing that was a bit of a let-down for me with NG2 though was the difficulty: the defa...

Re: The Official WTF are YOU playing right now thread

I'm still plugging away at the arcade version of Tiger Road. Damn that game is rough. I have figured out some important strategies recently and today, I made it to the stage four boss door. I would have made more progress but I put it down for about a month because it was pissing me off. I need to s...

Re: [ETC] Try Tower Akihabara

Although I have been to Nakano many times, I never went there looking for arcades. The other day, TRY sent out a tweet saying they moved about ten or so games from the 8th floor down to the 7th. So I guess the retro floor lives on if only partially.

Re: [ETC] Try Tower Akihabara

I am not sure what is happening to the 8th floor, but the sign in the elevator said some of the games may make their way to the 7th floor. So, I don't know exactly.

Re: [ETC] Try Tower Akihabara

I am in the southern edge of Tokyo near Haneda, so the time to get to Mikado is probably about the same as it is to get to TRY. I will have a look at their site and see what they have running. It sucks because I used to hit TRY after shopping.

Re: [ETC] Try Tower Akihabara

Well the the retro game 8th floor of Try Tower closes tomorrow. Now I don't know where I am going to go. I guess I have to hit the interwebs and search around. Although HEY has games that I like to play, I don't really like it because it is too loud and too crowded. TRY was perfect because it wasn't...

This past weekend, I got some spare capacitors and performed the jail bar fix described on this page: http://etim.net.au/av-driver/pcebars/ (Tim's the same guy who made NESRGB and lots of other goodies, so he knows his shit). My system's a Duo R, and the jail bars were quite noticeable before the f...

Recently, I finally got my Turbo Duo R set up and launched straight into coining Chi no Rondo, because what other game would I start with? Nice. I hope you managed to pick it up before that Angry Vidya Fuckhead made a video about it and the price doubled. I am still jammin' on that Ninja Ryukenden ...

Re: Nintendo Switch

Maybe I will eventually. I still haven't picked up a used Wii U yet to play Bayonetta 2. The problem is, I lost interest in Nintendo's key franchises a long time ago.

Re: The Official WTF are YOU playing right now thread

I finally got my hands on the first entry in my favorite series of all time. I snapped up the Nina Ryukenden Arcade PCB. The awesome music and relentless action make for one badass, overlooked, underrated game. Ninja in U.S.A.!!!

Re: Dork out: Game Goals...

I'm still plugging away at Dark Seal off and on. I can almost make it to the end of stage four before game over. I am going to get back on it this weekend. I am also still playing Sengoku Blade and working on a one loop clear with Junis. I am almost there but the lanterns...oh man the lanterns.

Re: Are we old yet? Or: Do you still collect?

I do but only kinda sorta. When I decided to go back to the classics, I made the decision to only keep games that I never tire of no matter how many times I clear them. If I buy a game I have never played before and I either don't like it or don't see myself wanting to play it again, I get rid of it...

Re: The Official WTF are YOU playing right now thread

Today was the arcade PCB's Double Dragon and Shadow Force. I saw a lot of negative things about Shadow Force before I bought it, but to tell you the truth, I really dig it. Currently tying to do a one credit run with Tengu. I don't usually play grapplers in these type of games, but I really like the...

I think I will post some progress videos of games I am playing from time to time. Here is one showing how I am doing in Cadash so far, with a few notes. In addition to no death, no grinding, I am also not buying healing items. Ever since I started importing games when I was in college, if the game i...

Re: Dork out: Game Goals...

Since I got my Cadash PCB I am doing a Magician run, no death, no grinding. I have never actually beaten the game before so I decided to go all out from the start. You would be surprised how many "reviews" of this game encourage grinding and then say the game is too easy.

Re: Arcade controllers, flyers, manuals etc

Damn, that's what I get for not paying attention. If it comes back busted, let me know. I don't know if I will be able to fix it but I would like to have a go at it because I love me some Afterburner II.
