Ibara

by on
Just received an Ibara kit and now it's probably the most difficult game I own on PCB. Definitely already received a lot of play over this weekend. The best part is that it save scores, so I have high scores to beat from the extremely talented friend I bought it from!

Fever S.O.S. (dangun feveron international)

by on
Finally received my dangun feveron international PCB and I can't get over how fun it is. The disco theme makes it a bit more lighthearted (though not as far/strange as muchi muchi pork), yet the speed of the game brings the intensity to another level. The scoring system - although very simple - makes the game very accessible on a mechanic standpoint. This will probably be my next 1CC goal :)

Summer Update

by on
haven't really been posting on here, but I felt it was time for an update with all my new toys :> I've been staying away from the mainstream and stickin' to what I know - shmups -------------- New Equipment -------------- recently, I bought myself a decently expensive supergun which is primarily custom made for CP System II (Capcom CPS2) arcade boards, but the JAMMA harness is universal and could run an insane amount of arcade PCBs. it's a dream come true  here's the backend of the gun  as you can see, with composite, component, s-video outputs, on the front with db15 pinouts, audio attenuation switches for speaker setup, additional harness support and so fourth. Great Mahou Daisakusen (Dimahoo) CPS2 board hooked up to my Sony Trinitron  blurry trinitron view  Dimahoo board (with many thanks to the Tokyo based Sophia Corporation for shipping both the A + B motherboards in flawless condition)  armed police batrider korean version B board (extremely pricey and rare lol)  and my final addition which I don't have a picture of yet, but a Progear no Arashi CPS2 conversion.

-------------- Shmups Meet -------------- Didn't provide an update last month, but I made it out to the Chicagoland Shmups Meet and met a bunch of guys (some of the top players from the US and Canada) that I chat with on the shmups forums.  I'm pictured far right in white (lol)   It was hidden in the back of a hardware store in Chicago and not available/closed off to the general public. Over 40 arcade boards were brought to be played on the candy cabinets and supergun setups. very exciting and fun. -------------- Gnarly
-------------- and lastly, check out my pinky finger from my skateboard wipe a few days ago. (warning: do not click if you don't want to see a missing fingernail) [spoiler]  [/spoiler] looks like I won't be playing in a few men's league hockey games for a bit..

Stick is almost done

by on
my "fountain" stick is almost complete. all that remains is the wiring (PC, PS2, PS3, 360, DC), bottom art, and bottom glass fitting! together we will live (in shmups) forever  :) edit: the bottom

The reason I got into Point and Click Adventures is making a return

by on
Doug TenNapel has posted up on The Neverhood facebook fanpage that he plans on making a new claymation point and click adventure! His original claymation adventure, "The Neverhood", was actually the first game to get me into the point and click adventure genre.   According to the facebook page
Through the years Neverhood fans have asked for another game, and I'm partnering with my EWJ and Neverhood buddies Mike Dietz and Ed Schofield to make a full sized, PC and Mac point and click adventure game in clay and puppet animation. New characters, but in my usual style. Terry Taylor is doing the music. Here's where you come in. What would you, the Neverhood fans, want to see in a new game? We'll read every suggestion and actually try to make all of the good ideas happen! Now it's your turn:Doug TenNapel

Best CAVE shmup coming to PS3!

by on
That's right! According to Famitsu, Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Tachi is making it's way to PS3 on July 25, 2013! Although I already own the region-locked XBOX 360 version of the game, I will most definitely be buying the PS3 port of my favorite shoot-em-up (given that it remains region-free like 99% of the PS3 library). rejoice!
