Glad to see you improving. It should go without saying scores are incredibly exponential in this game, so getting that first trillion is a hell of a lot harder than the second trillion.

FWIW, I use arcade sticks for everything, and the controls seem very responsive and consistent on the DC for me.

Here's a DC score. Used the Stranger. Not as overpowered as one may think; the balance comes with the rather pathetic Force Bomb it uses. Good for canceling bullets, nothing else. Easy to get 100% boss breaks though. I forgot how much this game can tear up your thumb on the d-pad. I know "use the analog stick", but I'm old school.

Giga Wing is great. Plus, if it didn't exist, then we wouldn't have this video:

DREAMCAST

DocHauser - 9,607,475,776,090 - Stage 6 - Sinnosuke/Stranger - DC

Final boss! Well, the final boss/TLB take up all of stages 6 and 7, so I'm getting close.

For the record, this is still fairly low in terms of score. I had the multiplier up to around 5 million in this run, while expert players are able to max out the multiplier (50 million) by Stage 5.

I love Xoxak's reviews.



EDIT:

Finally have a score to post. Damn near hit 1 trillion. Probably would'a done it if I hadn't taken the lamest death ever just before the boss. The two stupid deaths just before that didn't help either. Kind of a damper on a really solid stage one where I was able to milk the boss for a 320 billion stage score. Oh well.

So what are the differences between the DC and arcade versions outside of aspect ratio?

The main difference is slowdown (more on the CPS2 than DC), but there are other minor differences, I guess some of the small enemies are in different places.
