I'd watch a video of this, Chaz. :D

Too tired to concentrate tonight, but I've been playing (pretty bad) for about an hour. I now see why you guys like Kohtaro so much. At first I was like "yeah, and?" but then I did his Shikigami Attack and realized what was going on. Unreal. USing him is like a diff game. But like I said, just too tired to get a good run in tonight.

Agree with the above...very different experience using Ko instead of Sayo.

I still don't know any names, but the first 3 characters are all about the same for me.

I'm a bit better with the first gal, her bullet canceling is excellent obviously, but I get the extend too quickly (end of stage 2 every run) so it doesn't really help me with her.

Only in the high 600 mil range so far, so not posting anything yet. 2-2 boss pattern is getting a bit easier though.

Up to 793,000,000 with Ko but having trouble on bosses with him. With Kim and some of the other characters I feel like the bosses are easier. But with Ko my score is still higher.

first guy is Kohtaro.

I think you mean Sayo? She's the one that shoots cards like in Pocky & Rocky, right? I like her Shikigami Attack as a shield.

yeah totally. Ko is amazing thru the levels, but bosses are so much easier with Kim. I'm torn between those two myself.

ok, yesterday I tried it just long enough to find out that it isn't a very good backwards compatible game for my PS3. Today I put in a couple of runs to get a starter score:


dsheinem- 325,605,040 - Stage 2-2 (boss) - Kohtarou-1 - PS2

Why isn't it?

On a sort of related note, I feel like there is more slowdown in the PS2 version of this game compared to the DC version. Could be wrong. I didn't play them back to back, but the PS2 version felt slower at times.
