Babel was an excellent film, in my opinion.

Giga Wing

Mentioning that abomination might earn you a ban! Man, I HATE that game.

Shield delay, the fact that it isn't made by Cave, or other? :hehe:

@Ptoing: Panda pretty much nailed it. I'm goofy be nature, and have a hard time remembering names. Also, I never really knew how to say your name. So from now on, I'm going to refer to you as either, "The Toe" or P"toe"...just fuxin' around, ya' know...

@ Mccow28: nah, I just tried to base it off those Aztec dials/calendars(they could be Mayan also...) by memory...then again, I am sloppy, and have never played this "Giga Wing." So yeah, unintentional.
my back hurts...

Shield delay gets used to. There's other companies but Cave that make good shooters. Gigawing's problem is pretty shitty design of levels and enemy patterns, I think. Well, more 'uninteresting' than shit. Requires memorization without much twitch-reflex payoff (if you learn where to shield and when, you don't need to dodge much even) and sadly, suffers from extremely ugh graphic design by Capcom. One of their low points. Generic anime pilots with STUPID semi-plot... bad pixel art... prerendered 3d with jaggies... a fucking EMBOSS filter on the title screen... oh well

Mars Matrix also annoys.

Fair enough. :B Any shmups you'd recommend, besides the obvious few? I myself am trying to make one and have to do a little 'research'.

Grindhouse is going to be awesome.
Grindhouse looks ridiculous. I'm still going to see it, just saying that it looks a bit... stupid.

Any cave game, any Raizing game, Gunlock those are the ones I can thoroughly recommend.

About the graphics in GW, it's even worse in GW2, each aspect looks like it was handled by another artist who had NO clue what the others were doing. Also it has drawn anime portraits in the cutscenes and they have, now hold onto your chairs, DIFFERENCE CLOUDS layered on top of them. When I saw this I seriously had to laugh.

Gunlock is my favourite. Hm.. some early Toaplan stuff is worth the interest if you can deal with sometimes nice design but bad execution. I like Rapid Hero. You could do worse than play the Vasara series, as well as Cyvern.

Yeh, Vasara is decent. And truth about some Toaplan stuff. I like the Truxtons and Dogyuun too. Too bad Batsugun is fucked on mame  *strokes his Saturn version*
