Ha haa... I bought a folding cupholder off ebay recently which I screwed into the side of my cab, it holds a beer perfectly. Now just need something for the joint gameplay too :laugh:

I'm sure I lost a little of my mind that day. I'm not sure it's returned yet. ;)

But today my shoulders are aching from flying a giant chicken over the ocean from pontoon to pontoon. Anyone else played the new wii fit plus ? It's hilarious :D

Found it hard just to get that, talk about RSI !!!

Don't really have much time for frantic shooters of this era, I can't tell what the heck is going on :o

would much prefer your early 80's fantasy games ie ghost n goblins, rally x , even something left field like Q bert or zaxxon ( which I,ve never really had a serious go at) would get the cranium working playing on the unusual angles. Maybe the nominated games need to come from different pools POOL A adventure
POOL B button mashers
etc etc
so we don't play button mashers one after another.Just a thought!

I'll fess up to having nominated this one. My young son likes this and DoDonPachi, but DDP was either already chosen or I thought it too obvious a choice. I thought this game might be a good pick as it's hard. Hard for me anyway, maybe my crap score will encourage others too post theirs? Too many shooters in this comp maybe?

Sorry chaps if the game isn't so much fun.

Being a non-shmupper (as evidenced by my dismal shmup scores this mgl) I second the 'pool' idea for next MGL Dkong ? Would help to balance the genre's out.

hehe Q*bert, only just got into that recently, what a weirdly wonderful little game that is.

Sounds like a good idea to get a more even spread of games. Defiantly consider it for the next MGL :)
A few games of this and my arm was aching more than an hour of Juno First:laugh:

I've been playing Galplus for the first couple days, then wondered why people were bitching about the game and getting low scores :laugh:

My forearm is twitching after a few nights of this, though I finally got through level 1 but not without major effort and frustration... I probably wont give this one any more time though, good luck everyone and bring on Game 12 :D

Hey fellahs if you're tired of Galmedes and are looking for something else, if you haven't heard of it check out "PuLiRuLa" (which was one of my other nominations), one of the strangest games I've ever seen.

Not so much as its not fun mate, for me its out of my era of classic gaming. Thats not to say others will find it a cool game.

Hell, i dont even get into Raiden:redface But a game is a game, and its all good to play ones we havent before! But its kicking my ass big time:laugh:

Way to many speed ups in this game, dying half the time with too much speed.:rolleyes
Otherwise not a bad Shmup.
