    Raiden is easily my all time favourite shooter, loved it in the arcade and in the late 1990's when I first heard about mame me and a mate used to play two player Raiden on a shared keyboard (emulating Raiden 2 would top my wishlist for future mame releases by a long long way). I think they got the speed about right for me in raiden, after that a lot of the games got too fast and hetic to know what's going on but with games like raiden/commando/slap fight you can get that nice weaving pattern between enemy fire that's always fun.

    Now if I can just teach my little pixelated cannon fodder how to walk around a tree I'll be doing fine .

    Hehe yeh walk up to tree, try to go left, try to go right, get shot Those grunts are none too clever..

    I've put a 'Progress Scores' table in blue on the first post, this way everyone can check the first post of a game for who's currently leading, or their nearest rival (and will help me tally up at week's end) I'll update the progress scores every couple of days in the week of play.

    Game on!

    Off topic but you can get Raiden 2 + 3 on PC and they're arcade perfect conversions. [

    Hey, my first score for a compo. Now I really want a good arcade joystick! I was scavenging through my stuff but an XBox controller or keyboard really aren't designed for old style arcade games.
    Why did digital joysticks get replaced with these horrible little analogue controllers (even though Vectrex's were the first the have them )
