Oh, shit. M2 bringing G-Darius HD to steam in the winter too! Urgh mur gurd! Already bought it on ps4, but I'll gladly grab it again. If we could get more M2, that would be fantastic!

Very nice. Darius Gaiden one of my faves :-)

Nothing new, though.

No, nothing new, but it's always nice to see good official ports, and I had no idea either of these were coming to pc.

I haven't tried it yet, but there's a demo up for Hell Blasters. Can't get newer than not out yet :D  - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1696200/Hell_Blasters/



They call their super easy difficulty level "journalist mode" where you can just shoot the bullets out of the air before they reach you, the wee scamps! :D - https://twitter.com/PlayshiftG/status/1441045150851952641

This looks promising, SHINORUBI - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1665900/SHINORUBI/

They say it's gonna have 6 different arrange modes when it launches into early access and then there'll be three more coming for launch!

Ooh, this is really good fun!
The idea is to keep your chain up and get it as high as you can.

Killing enemies will raise you chain, but you can also shoot orange bullets and missiles and that will also raise your chain, but get this, your hyper beam thing that cancels bullets, the bullets you cancel also raise the chain!

So it's all about exploiting these systems and bumping your chain as high as you can. Do you leave that big enemy alive as long as you can because he's firing loads of bullets you can shoot that'll fill your hyper gauge which you can use to cancel loads of bullets from that other big enemy you're purposefully leaving alive?

Very good fun. Lots of scoring potential.

Here's my best run so far so you can see how it plays - https://streamable.com/qdntx6

The 48fps cap is weird, but it feels fine.

The 48fps thing is a bug.
I think it's related to vsync since it's a third of 144. Can't force off vsync for some reason, I've asked the dev if he'll add an in game toggle to see if that fixes it, and I'm playing at 60hz in the meantime.

I have it on good authority that it's going to be the next shmup junkie caravan contest if you want to start practising!

Just been sent GLEYLANCER for Nintendo Switch - old Mega Drive shooter, getting re-released with an English translation and some accessibility features I will be ignoring.

Improved modes available with accessibility features and modern controls.

Uh-oh! I hear you're a twin stick shooter now, father!
Heard this games name a lot but never played it. I'll have to fire it up in fusion when I get the chance and see what it's like!

Looks a little like Hellfire but with the different fire modes being limited to your drones.

From what I can tell, by modern controls they just mean "remappable", hahaha. I tried it last night but was so tired I just died immediately.

Might they mean analogue movement?
They can't mean rebindable buttons, surely :D

Hell Blasters is out. It's good. I died on the last boss - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1696200/Hell_Blasters/

Dev has added a vsync toggle and that has fixed the framerate bug at high refresh rates.

I'm guessing nobody is playing hard mode yet!

Been playing this today. It's called Precious Star. Really good fun. Nice and chill 1cc with the yellow ship. Give it a go, it's free!

Precious Star

Got the blind clear on the guys earlier game today. Eclosion. It's a lot of fun, it doesn't have the special weapon thing from precious star so it's a bit more simple.

Oh shit! Blue Wish Desire is go! - https://twitter.com/xxgameroom/status/1447915103345516550

Not free this time, but he deserves all the money. Says he's thinking about steam and itch, but booth is quick and painless for him so it's up there for now.

I have a booth account because it was the only place to get this, which wasn't so good, so I'm getting it.

Yos! I go a no miss on blue wish desire.



Look at this lad here - https://youtu.be/RQE67z8VaL0?t=723
He gets a secret extend on stage 3. I wonder how you do that, maybe you just have to uncover all the treasure up to that point, or maybe you have to do those two before it in order, left then right.
That's worth another 10,000,000 if you carry it over the finish line!
I'll have to see if I can figure out how to get that.

This is aces! I'm gonna try and do hard mode next.

He gets a secret extend on stage 3.

I talked to toimine on discord and he was very nice.
He says you have to break all the parts of the midboss. He says there's a few things hanging out the back of him, one on the left and one on the right, that you'd miss unless you were looking for them. So you have to damage them after you do the turrets and the boss will go into a new nasty pattern after that.
Then the extra secret pillar appears afterwards and the 1up is in there.

You unlock a new ship when you clear the game, and once you clear the game with all three ships you unlock this extra one called "despair" and I was using it the other day, it's like inverted, you've got a really powerful rapid shot, and then when you focus you've got this really weak but really wide shot that does fuck all damage, so it's gonna be great for scoring, leaving things alive long enough to cancel more bullets and then switching to your rapid shot when things get hairy and you need to take things down more quickty.

Not being able to focus and deal damage is a nightmare when shit hits the fan though! :D

Sunny Tam has announced DU4 which is gonna be called "Danmaku Unlimited: WYVER ULTRA" - https://twitter.com/SunnySyTam/status/1448001781749911559

DU2 was good, but DU3 was pretty damn fucking boring, just hanging round down the bottom of the screen herding and grazing like some daft cow. At least DU2 had the mechanic where you built your hyper quicker the more risky you played. I hope he does something interesting with the scoring, or fucks off grazing. Grazing can be brilliant fun (Exceed 3rd Jade Penetrate Black Package, for example), but not the way he does it.
Looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

Oh, look. If you clear normal with all 4 ships, you unlock another secret ship, one of the broads from eden's aegis.

Steam seems to require an app registration fee ($ 100), so I'll pay it tomorrow. There is also a review, so it seems that it will still take time
