Post Here Every Time You Buy a SHMUP - Resurrected.

#1CID1Posted 7/30/2011 7:39:17 PM
I enjoyed Shamrock's topic. I really liked seeing what others were buying and being able to tell those that might give a damn what my own recent acquisitions. So, for awhile I've wanted to open another back up.

I was really, really stocked when I got my hands on a complete MUSHA but... I held off making this topic for whatever reason.

I've gotten a several over the couple months but I know I won;t be able to recall them all right now. However there is one game that I'm stoked to mention. Invader for the GBA. An EU only release that seems to be a bit hard to find. It was recommended to my on the GBA board and lo and behold within a week a copy appeared on ebay. The game is serious impressive and not just for a GBA title. Damn near on par with the more modern vert shumps of the last gen or so. Fast, high degree of skill advancement. Certainly the best handheld shump I've played so far.

Ok so what I acquired (that I can recall).

MUSHA (This took up a good month of my life, fair trade)
Phalanx (GBA)
Sigma Star Saga
Castle of Shikigami 2
Raiden Fighters Aces
R-types
Parodius Da! (SFC)
Gokujou Parodius (SFC)
Dezaemon (SFC)
Konami GB Collection Vol. 1 - Gradius (EU GBC version. Though I bought it for Castlevania)
Strike Force Hydra

Well that's what I could recall off the top of my head.

I'm considering picking up a copy of Radiant Silvergun local from a guy in my city. He wants a hundred USD. (It's complete I believe). He said he'll also do trade but what he's asking for it worth more than the $100. It's market value, I can't complain. I'm going to try to meet with him tomorrow. So we'll see. Input on this is well welcomed.

In preparation for the imminent arrival of a PC Engine I grabbed the following.

Winds of Thunder
Gate of Thunder
Soldier Blade
Super Star Soldier
Gunhed (Blazing Lazers)

Spriggen is probably next on the hit list. Not sure about titles like Magical Chase, Saphire and Nexzr, seem well out of my price range :(

I got Gaia Seed on PSN a few weeks ago on an impulse buy. It was cheap so I was like why not?

It's alright, nothing too special.

R-Type 2 (PC)

I saw a copy of Chaos Field for the Cube for 5 bucks, but I already own Ultimate Shooting Collection so I passed. Maybe I change my mind and go back and get it later.

Nice choice Kimimi, Souky is one of my faves.

Waiting to bear back about a copy of Eschatos... <fingers crossed>

Whoops. I meant Raiden 2 not R-Type 2.

Oh and I picked up Deathsmiles LE the other day. Haven't opened it yet. I have a lead on a Duck Tales 2 that I might want to put the cost of this towards that. We'll see.

And finally I just proof read my initial post. Wow, how embarrassing. I typed that up on my phone and didn't proof read it. My apologizes for the numerous typos.

I grabbed Chaos Field.

I fixed my RRODed 360 so I opend Deathsmiles and finally got a chance to play Raiden Fighters Aces.

Now I need to start hunting down some 360 shmups...
