I got a Dreamcast yesterday and have been playing Border Down. What's the incentive for starting at the yellow or red border? Is there a scoring difference?

Daily reminder of how retarded and lacking in initiative or logic your average poster here is. Go watch a superplay or the STG weekly episode on it or even check out the strategy guide on the shmups forum which will have every answer you require.... not so hard is it?

Tired old trolling meme. Get some new material already. Hating on Treasure lost its edge.

The second stage? It's not that hard. You might have to hang back and wait for the spheres to pop out, and a wide or homing weapon helps.

Yo, need help.
Im looking for specific shmup, dont remember the title.
Main thing was that there were three types of ships and three characters to choose from at the start of the game.

Some kind of macho guy in his bulky bomberlike ship, really bulby, A grill in her fighter and a crazy doc/scientist in his sleek, fast ship.
Anyone know the title?

Does the game "Layer Section" have a sort of auto-centering or is my controller busted? For example, I move right, and when I let off right or left, my ship drifts a bit back the other way. It only does this in certain areas.

I had to scrub the connectors on the controller pretty well to even get it to respond, but I didn't noticed any bad input in any other game.
>>
>>2946629
Never played, but by the sound of it it does.
Try emulating it and compare.
>>
>>2946715
Good idea, I'll try that out later.

Horizontal shooters peaked with Boogie Wings.

I haven't seen anything top that in terms of gameplay innovations.

Good game but I think you're in the wrong thread. Practically everyone here is a bonafide weaboo. Also this isn't really a thread for run n guns or platformers, which are considered different genres from STGs even though a lot of them feature shooting.
>>
>>2947358
It's mediocre, doesn't come close to the likes of the holy trinity of run 'n guns that is Metal Slug, Contra and Gunstar.

At least it has that cool euroshmup part in 2.

Designed like garbage, but it comes close to being good.
>>
>>2947496
It actually took me by surprise when I found out that the Psyvariar games were by korean devs. Given the country's past efforts in the shmup market which included commercial games that literally ripped graphics from other shmups, the leap in quality, style and originality was nothing short of amazing.

The same devs are also apparently responsible for Sanvein, another batshit insane shooter (if you're willing to call it that) for the PS1.

>>
>>2947524
Sanvein was developed by Success alone. They didn't develop Psyvariar but they did publish it.
>>
After neglecting the genre some time, i think i'm finally starting to like it. So far i've 1cc'd Gradius and UN Squadron, now i'm into Gradius II.
>>
>>2941354
I died every two seconds and basically brute forced my way through the with the basic weapon and speed at all times. Still good fun.

Do Gradius III arcade next.
