Tamashii is easier white label and not black label. Can we officially call it gray label?? :)

I just bought the three from @ITATTRACTS but he hasn't mailed them. You want me to have him mail to you direct and you can figure out what's wrong with your stuff? I'm in not rush to get them.
I appreciate the thought!!

But I've got a second set of boards to build for a friend here in the house, just don't have the eproms in hand to do so yet.

What's worse is I have DDP DOJ original board, DDP DOJ Tamashii, and now the conversion as well... 3 ways to play this damned game, and no ways to play the other two (except PS4 Ketsui I suppose).
Of those 3, Tamashii is the best one :) It's difficulty is accessibly as fun to play and it also sounds the best by far...
I dont see what all the hububs about on these cave titles.

I own all three not DDPII and they don't get near as much love as Gradius and their wonderful economy.

Blah blah my opinion onion..

DDP is good. I like most other Cave titles moreso personally.

Darius is still probably my favorite shmup series and I'd pick G-Darius or Darius Gaiden (with auto fire) over any Cave title except Deathsmiles any day.

I love feeding a single credit into Darius because of the branching path choices.

After the first death the temptation to "quarter feed" becomes too strong and takes away from the feeling of accomplishment.

Its like playing God mode in Quake to me.

With Gradius/Nemesis it just kicks you out and tells you suck "YOU NEED PRACTICE!"

We should have on month long tournament on each of these and see who scores best ... you will learn to love them
No one here plays games. Tried a week long tournament and zero entries.
Wait, what?! I'm in. I try to post on shmups, but when the top 100 scores are on the first 10 pages, and you are like 127th place... it's sort of sad. I know I suck, I just don't like being shown how much! :P

I'm down for some games I have. Multi's or shooters, or brawlers. Heck, Smash TV!

I doubt all those scores are genuine.
That's why I prefer small "tournaments" with friends. Few competitors so you're assured to be in the top 10, and really nothing to lose, people will still be happy to see you participating even if you're good last.

Hmm, so you're saying a world championship tournament, where only 10 people enter, then, I can tell people I came in the top ten of a world tournament? I like the way you think.

Maybe a high score competition might work better with a lot more people at home at the moment due to COVID-19?

I know on a local Dutch console forum they had a competition like that.
Game would change on a monthly basis, so for example January would be best score in level x of game y, February would be fastest lap in a race game on a certain lap etc.

Let’s start with STV Darius Gaiden.

Single credit as far as you can make it.

Damn you guys are too quick. Still down for Darius Gaiden on the F3.

I was tripping out when I didn’t see it on the dip list I swore I owned it....

Round 1
