    Not my best but it's a start. All things considered I'll be happy with a top 10 finish on this game. Expecting to see some big scores and probably a new TG record by November 3rd

      I have the current TG record for this game which I set in July. For an early tip note that most of the top scores on TG use 2UP side when playing.

        Congrats on that record!

        And a very nice opening score too!

            [MENTION=14197]BandontheRun[/MENTION]. I was. I used to play Raiden at the local bowling alley in the early 90's. Loved the sequel as well. The music has always stayed with me; so stirring and epic. It was this game plus Raiden DX that I credit for reawakening my desire for more arcade gaming experiences when I started going to Pixel Alley and Bartronica in late 2016. It's not going too far to say that it was largely because of this great franchise that I really got keen to play in the MGL.
            I've even got that Raiden poster above on my wall!

            Extremely impressive score from Megaderek. I wasn't aware of his status as the TG record holder. But now I know. Before that, I'd been inspired by videos posted by both Barra and John McCallister on TG which helped me improve my game. Thus, I'm very happy to have Raiden as my second nomination achieved in an MGL. It should serve as the motivation I need to go for a new PB. I don't care if work is crazy at the moment; I'll be making time to play this. Good shootin' to all you schmuppers!

            Well, enough wide-eyed romantic nostalgic blather, time to set a first score!

                  p2 side has lower rank when using the red weapon, and vice versa for p1 side and the laser weapon.
                  but since Raiden 1 relies heavily on the red weapon for non auto and autofire runs it's significantly better to use p2 side

                  rank = difficulty, so to put it simply using p2 side makes the game easier, and its pretty noticable on nomiss runs if you accidentally pick up the laser

                      There was little to kill this second boss, it was not this time, but I increased my score.

                        Is it wrong to love a game this much yet be so horrible at it?

                              From one extreme to another. I quit the previous attempt after getting hit by the very first enemy bullet fired.

                              Happy with this score. Not expecting to score too much higher right now. These days I'm only good for 3 or 4 games in a row on shooters before it gets painful
