Played Trouble Witches demo yesterday and liked it, but it seems like it is missing some polish to me.

I'll DL when I find deals on points. I doubt it'll ever go on sale - SNK games never do.

Trouble Witches is ok, but damn the VA is annoying.

Apparently the European release of DoDonPachi dai fukkatsu (DDP: Resurrection) will be playable on North American xboxes! $65 plus shipping from ncsx.

Another option might be hmv.com, which is ~35 pounds shipped. Amazon.co.uk is ~30 pounds shipped. I'll probably try that later tonight.

Nice. I wonder if it'll get a cheaper Platinum rerelease down the road.

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

oh sweet! Resurrection!!

I bought Jamestown waaaaay back in the days, during the last crazy Steam sale.

like all Steam games, it just sits there in a list never to be downloaded ever lol.

a list worth at least $100 -_-

My stuff has been downloaded, played for 10 minutes, and subsequently forgotten about.

Sort of off-topic but I think part of the problem with digital distribution is that there isn't a box sitting on a shelf in your house saying, "Play me dude, you paid $30 for me!"

I couldn't tell you what Steam games I own right this second, but I can look up at my bookshelf and tell you all the 360/PS3 games I've bought since late May.

Okay so the Gudemonium Collection is up on steam, price is only$9.99 but I had to look up doujin to see what the hell that meant. Now I have to ask is this some cartoon porn shooter or wtf? I didn't see any weird shit in the trailers but I would rather not be surprised while playing.
No matter how good looking she is, some one some where is sick of her shit.

Gundemonium is just a straight up cute-em-up, but it's rather difficult. There's nothing "porno" about it.

Wondering if Under Defeat HD is still on tap for next month. Not too much shmup news lately which makes me sad.

Digital Reality's "Sinemora" popped back into the news briefly today by confirming it is XBLA only. The Grasshopper Manufacture's graphics look really sweet, but I'm hoping the long dev time means the game is going to be more than just a pretty face.

Akai Katana Shin is also being "explored" for smartphone. Seems like this is where most shmup development is going these days.

I still play Espgaluda on ipad, but I'd like to see more console ports, not so much phone stuff.

Read: not for the fucking iphone. Or ipad.

cant beat buttons, but the iphone mode versions of those games are actually a lot of fun.

the change the mechanics to cater more to touch screen so they work out real well.

I dont even play the regular Arcade modes... it's not worth it.

also, the iphone mode in Deathsmiles sucked lol.

I just got an iphone from my uncle a few days ago and I am LOVING the Cave games. And they are all on sale right now in honor of Espgaluda 2 winning some game of the year award. I just bought Deathsmiles because I want to play the new mode and obsess over items Castlevania-style!

Accoring to the guys over at Shumps forum, this is a pretty good port, not 100% perfect, but very good.


Edit: Taking a quick peek at some of their comments talking about this news, they mention, that on Rising Star's website it only has a mention of the 360 version, considering that's the version that is buggy (JPN release) and both are virtually identical, I cannot see why Rising Star would not release both versions, unless they don't have a good PS3 distribution platform in place. So time till tell.

The CAG motto: "Maybe you'll luck out and get the game during a sale before it sells out, maybe not, that's the life of a CAG. Luck of the draw. And timing is everything."
