BUMP

I don't want this topic closing. The 360 board needs a shmup topic.

I agree.

I'm currently trying my luck with Raiden Fighter Aces. No score play though. Simply playing for fun.

I've been playing that a bit lately too and it's kind of kicking my ass. I feel everything just blends together and the yellow bullets, yellow backgrounds and yellow explosions makes it hard to keep focus on the entire screen. Pretty hard even on Normal but I've beaten the first two now. It's fun though and offers plenty of variation in the ships. I've also always been a fan of massive sprite-based boss fights.

Also bought Sine Mora EX again on the Xbox One and I'm not liking it as much as I remembered. Way too much random BS coming out of nowhere and it's hard to see what you're allowed to touch. The bullets could also have been more pronounced and a new ship for every stage means you don't learn the hitboxes/subweapons. Feels like the game has some great ideas and some epic boss design but it's just not that enjoyable to play. Too much showing off the graphics without letting me play too.

I played some Strikers 1945 on the Switch during the last week. The Switch's tabletop mode is a pretty great option to play games in TATE mode without having to turn a huge TV on it's side.

I hope this will become a trend on the Switch (Namco Museum and Psikyo's Gunbird spinoff Gunbarich also support a TATE mode) and more shmup developers will release their games on the Switch.

Other shmups i played in the last few weeks are Blazing Star and Aero Fighters 2 in Hamster's Neo Geo Arcade Archives series on the Switch, Ghost Blade HD on Wii U and Raiden IV Overkill on PS3.

My favourite shmup ever is still Psyvariar 2 on the Dreamcast.

The 360 is still the best console for shmup fans with all the awesome Cave games and stuff like Strania and Trigger Heart Exelica.
Now that it looks like X1 won't be a viable option, i hope shmup developers get their act together and start to properly support the PS4 and the Switch instead of focusing on PC and phones.

The OG Xbox had Psyvariar 2 and Shikigami no Shiro (Castle of Shikigami) 1, Evolution and 2.

They have only been released in Japan, but those are some great shmups. I have the Dreamcast versions of Shikigami no Shiro 2 and Psyvariar and i strongly recommend them.

Castle of Shikigami 2 got a western release on PS2, Castle of Shikigami 3 got a american release on Wii.
