Depends on the condition, and how complete it is--are those just the bare boards? If it has the art, then I'd say that it's a very good price.

The Garegga board is pretty hard to find, and those that are selling it want a silly amount of money for it, but on the other hand, you could just get the Saturn disc cheaper. My interest in arcade boards is over with. Unless you're good with fixing/maintaining them, it's just a pain in the ass to collect, not to mention a money sink compared to console versions.


Just the boards. I just got an astro city arcade machine and I want to play some shmups on it but abit of me don't want to pay that much for donpachi and battle garrega since I do have them for my Saturn. I might go ahead and get progear since I always wanted to play it and I don't have to put the screen vertically.

It's a reasonable price, but then again, I'm not into collecting boards, so I wouldn't even bother with them. :p

New info on the XBLA release of Radiant Silvergun.

Going to be a must buy for me--the Saturn version was one of those games that I just didn't have the stomach to shell out big bucks for.

Also, some info on Strania, G. Rev's XBLA shmup:

I have read that it is not region free.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

Yes. It's just all boss battles, but nice to have on a portable.

The iphone Cave shmups are more "complete" games, though.

I like the iphone games but the collector in me wanted that Ketsui ds version. I wanted to purchase it before but had no ds unit. When I noticed a cag had one sale for a decent price I was in.

Looked up some of the games mentioned on the last page here lately and they're kind of out my price range. Might have to dig deep on past pages in this thread to figure out what the best region free games are.

Related, I picked up Ultimate Shooting Collection and Castle of Shikigami III on the Wii awhile back. Now I just need to get a Wii in May. Almost picked up a copy of Chaos Field for the GCN, but passed since I have USC. Also, got Death Smiles, but haven't had the chance to play it yet.

Yeah, don't get Chaos Field. Second reference to it I've seen on CAG in the past couple days but it isn't good. At all.

I bit on Eschatos and Mushihimesama Futari yesterday. I'm as psyched to try Judgement Silversword as much as either of the "real" titles.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

You'll have to let me know how Castle Shikigami III and USC is.

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.

I'm liking the Strania demo. I'll full game that and Trouble Witches Neo. Haven't tried the demo for that yet, but it reminds me of the Cotton series of shmups, and I liked those games.

I've only played like 15 minutes of Strania so far, but yeah, I really liked it. Seems like a return to form for G.Rev... which is good, because I loved Border Down and Under Defeat but hated the Senko no Ronde games and that Mamoru-kun bullshit they had a hand in.

Trouble Witches was better than I would've expected. It's a cute-em-up, so it doesn't make you feel manly, and the music is kinda weak, but the gameplay is definitely solid (based on the demo, at least.) I'll be picking that one up, as well.

Has anyone gotten a copy of Espgaluda II Black Label (Platinum Collection) yet, or heard if it is region free? It is still showing "?" on Play-Asia... I really want to get it but unfortunately I can't swing a JP X360 anytime soon if it is JP only.

According to NCSX it is region free. That said, I don't know if they're simply assuming but an email would answer it.

In other shmup news, I didn't get my games today so no weekend of shooting for me :(

I'll just play some Raiden Fighters instead.

Eschatos is pretty good. Very simple with no real power ups to speak of (unless they're in the alternate versions). I'm reminded of Trizeal but I think that's just the graphics talking. It has been forever since I played Trizeal. Judgement Silversword is jaw-dropping given the fact that it's a Wonderswan game. It might be better than Eschatos.

Mushihimesama Futari is beautiful. I only got to play it for like 10 minutes but wow, I'm looking forward to much more of it.

It's mostly the graphics. They're sort of intentionally retro-simple. It looks better/is better than Trizeal. And the more I play Judgement Silversword, the more it is obvious that Eschatos is meant to be its big brother sequel. I think I paid 78.90 + shipping for it which is about par for imports nowadays.
