Game of the Month: January 2021 - 精霊戦士 SPRIGGAN
« on: January 03, 2021, 09:10:28 PM »
精霊戦士 SPRIGGAN


New year and new game of the month! Hope everyone had a happy new year. Here's to hoping this year is a little better towards slowly getting out of the shit that was 2020 for everyone. So we're gonna start this year off right with a fantastic shooter! Spriggan is my favorite vertical shooter on the cd system. The weapon combinations I always had fun with. The music is fantastic as well as the few cutscenes in the game. A decent amount of levels as well as the 2 and 5 minute time runs. Time to test your reflexes you old bastards. Lol! Enjoy guys!

Sweet, Ys 4 - The Dawn of Ys; I look forward to replaying it again.  There's no such thing as too much Adol!   :cook:

Haha! I was planning on playing through Ys 4 this month as well!

I guess I'll have to play both.  :dance:

There is no reason to not play more than 1 pc-engine turbo game this month, however Spriggan it is.

Gex yes for me it is. I love me some Nexzr and some others, but Spriggan is my favorite on the CD system for shooters.

Spriggan is usually my favorite as well. (I love Star Parodier, too!) It was also the first game I imported bitd. Hellfire S was the next game I imported and that was a little disappointing, haha.

I'll definitely play through it sometime this month, but I'm always up for playing Spriggan. :)

As one of the few great choot-chootz that I don't own, I'm super stoked to finally play this properly on my Turbogarpex-16 mini!  Damn, I love it so far!  I think I'm more of a yellow-red-red kind of guy so far. But by no means am I even decent yet, haha!

Great pick for the month!  I'm confused, was this month originally Ys IV or was it always Soup-Riggan!?

It should've been Ys 4.  Damn goosey's teasing me with Adol.

You got a little practice run on the Evercon/Duophile stream :)

I've also been testing out my recently acquired mini with Spriggian. I'm not doing as well as I remember. I'm not gonna jump on the lag wagon, but the pad definitely feels different from a warn out 30 year old beater. I plan to play on OG hardware some time this month to make sure I'm just sucking at the the game and it's not the mini fault.

Yeah, there's definitely some lag going on with the Mini. :(

I can play through Ninja Spirit pretty easily on normal hardware and can't beat it on the Mini. And I haven't been able to beat Star Parodier or Spriggan on it yet, either. But I don't always beat those on regular hardware. I can't blame not finishing it during the stream on lag, though. I think I was a bit too tipsy, haha.

Yeah lag sucks on all the mini's I have. Doesn't matter what display or tv setting I use. It's bad for shooters either way. I cant tell as much on platformers. Haven't done a full playthrough yet, but I did get a few 2 and 5 min runs in. Haven't broken my old scores yet.
