Pst, my new score is slightly higher.

But I've been consistently getting in at least 300k and past stage 2. I think with time and determination it can be beat! Still waiting on that video of your score null!

414,970-Sorry to spam this thread, but I've been playing this game every day since MGC. Just a run or two a day. It's helping. By the time I actually own the game I may be able to beat it.

I can't *legally* drink for another 3 months. You can't cheat me like that!

Only scores achieved while drunk will count from this point forward. :lol:

LOL!  No fair.  Some play better drunk!

Oh yeah baby. 576,900

I had been playing lots of the Genesis version and I got over 500k on that one in about 2 tries. Then I come back to the good ole PCE and I have such a good run. I had 300k all on my first life before I started losing a bit of momentum. The first two bosses are actually easy if you know what to do. (destroy all the boss's shooters it has on it and then all it has is one easy spread you can dodge for days). There's a f*cking bullshit respawn thing after the 2nd boss where if you die shortly after beating that boss, you have to rebeat it all over again.

My trouble now is figuring out that 3rd crab boss, f*ck is it hard and fast. I may need to switch to the blue weapon on that one. Some day I'll beat this game, some day



Anyone have a copy for sale? :wink:

And with one single post, a "suck it Null" was heard round the world.

Nice.  That game is damn challenging.  One of these days I'll put some time into it.

If you can beat Raiden you can compete in Tatsujin.

I don't think Null has seen this yet, I can't bask in this just quite yet.

I used to be pretty good at this on pc-e.  Never did a high score run though.  I do fairly well with the pcb though.  I'll have to try it tonight for this friday.

Nullity should not be allowed to create high score threads anymore :)

Wasn't drunk when I played unfortunately, but I'm making my way to the top! Gotta move over your hairy butt Null



1CC on Easy mode, with 1226090. I kept playing but didn't bother. I don't have a score yet for Normal but I've made it to stage 4 on 1 credit, smashing whatever was on the leaderboard. I'll keep ya posted.

Here's a couple tips to make life easier

1. Practice in easy mode. It's identical to normal but the bullets are slightly slower. Same amount of enemies
2. Position your ship in the middle of the screen. After stage 1, enemies will start coming out of the rear.
3. Green laser is the best weapon, it decimates mini-bosses and bosses. Forget about the lightning because it's hard to see bullets
4. The two green "elephant" minibosses on the first level, stick to the top left corner. They can't hurt you!
5. Levels 1, 2, and 5 have a secret 1up (or 2up) if you shoot a thing in the screen. It's color corresponds with the weapon necessary to open it.
6. The level 4 boss is probably one of the easiest. Stick to the very bottom of the screen and move with it parallel
