hmm always some excuse Misery eh? I know how good you are at the genre, so why not just play and submit a score.. a matter of days ago you were playing this game anyway you said and how much you love the series..
On a side note.. new threads with all our scores for Gigawing and Gradius now in the high score section for those of you who want to better your scores at some point.I have also created a Facebook group after someone mentioned about starting one so people could interact easier if they so wish.http://www.facebook.com/groups/332379713514918/
What do people think about moving the league to it's own forum or are they happy with it being here. I'd like to let a few players who used to use this forum (who refuse to return) play in the league as they have shown interest. what do people think? I dont want to make it open to too many people because it will kill the fun out of it, but would be nice to have a few other players.
Oh dont get me wrong, I do enjoy the R-Type series alot..... only one I havent really played is Leo (which is also the really wierd one).
......but I never played this one for score. I quickly found that when I was overly trying to kill EVERYTHING to get points, I ended up smacking into things stupidly more often than not (this is a recurring theme for me, with this genre). So there was already a little frustration with it. In other games this tends to result in me doing things like ramming the damn bosses, or stupid crap like that; all the skill in the world dont mean too much when you awkwardly crash into the very first boss of one of these. One of these days I'll stop doing that; that day is not today.
As it is, I wasnt in a very good mood when I posted that earlier (and was blasted on caffiene again), so I may take that one back, I think. I really must stop posting things when I'm feeling particularly irritable.
It depends, though. If I'm finding that scores WITHOUT milking cant compare to similar-ending-level scores WITH milking, I'll *definitely* stop.
Oh, and if you want to set up a forum, that kind of thing might be a nice idea. Though I wonder how many people you could get to join one.... much as I always hate saying it, it IS a niche genre, after all....
