Re: VO: Force - who's in?!

I've been getting Open Tray errors, though, so hopefully that won't stop me from playing. It stopped me from playing. :cry: My copy arrived yesterday (I didn't know UPS delivered on Christmas Eve!), but the ghetto tap method doesn't seem to work anymore. Hopefully it's just a dirty laser.

Ha, I was wondering if you were talking about Lordstar. I haven't bought any of his shirts, but he sells a ton of them on Shmups Forum. Between this and the Haggar shark shirt I might have to make a purchase. :)

Re: Who'd be up for a theoretical Chicago VOOT tourney in Ma

Sure. I've gone to Chicago to play shmups a few times, so why not VOOT?

But yeah, like Schooly said... good luck getting enough people. It's hard enough getting people to gather online at a specific date/time. ;)

Re: VO: Force - who's in?!

Yeah, I assume I should be getting my copy early next week. I've been getting Open Tray errors, though, so hopefully that won't stop me from playing. I've been ignoring it for two reasons: 1.) Pretty much everything I play is an XBLA game 2.) I've been successfully using the "tap on the lid while it...

Re: Virtual On Force coming to XBLA?

For comparison, Dreamcast VOOT got 39/40. If VOOT got less than 40/40, their opinion doesn't mean much to me anyway. :mrgreen: Given that it's just a port of a relatively old arcade game, those scores are probably as good as could be expected. The 360 Cave shmups were very solid ports of the arcade...

Re: Magfest 2011- Jan 13 - 16, 2011

I'm still not sure if I'm going (I better decide soon!), but: From what I've read, the link cable for the 360 is just an ordinary crossover cable. If that's true, it should be easy to find a cheap one. Also, a cheap way around the TV situation could be to buy some HDMI to DVI converters. It's certai...

Re: Vash comeing soon to an xbox near you

Becareful of wireless internet. There will be more lag and party breakups. If you can, just plug in a long ethernet cable :) I agree that a wired connection is more robust, but I haven't had any problems with my wireless. It might depend on your surroundings, though (distance from router, interfere...

Re: Tournaments.

I don't mind Friday or Saturday night as long as I know ahead of time. I'm not usually on XBL then, but I could be if I know there's VOOT to be played.

Re: Magfest 2011- Jan 13 - 16, 2011

I'm almost sort of thinking of maybe going to this. I'd probably have to fly in, but I have the money and a bunch of spare vacation days I need to use before the end of March, so know knows. If I played more games that other people actually like I'd be more inclined to go. If I come I could bring my...

Re: What are you playing?

On the topic of "only a handful of people in the entire world bothered getting this good at this game," I climbed my way up to #21 on the Crazy Taxi arcade mode leaderboard. Getting any higher will be pretty tough; my score was very close to my all-time high from back in the day ($65k). Now I need t...

Re: Virtual On Force coming to XBLA?

I preordered the Asian version. I'll try it with an American console when I get it, but if it was going to be region free I think they would have said so by now. :|

Last I saw he was playing Yu-Gi-Oh, skipping Crazy Taxi entirely. In other words, Phantom is a dirty, dirty liar.

Re: Self Introduction

First, when I play my first online match, please do note I will refuse to play anyone who only has 200 gamerscore. Don't worry: - I think Menthol is the only VOOT player outside of Japan with a 200 gamerscore - The AI sucks, so expect to lose your first match against a human, no matter who they are...

Re: VirtualOn.Org

Is there a newer version of this data out there anywhere? Probably not, if there is, that'd be nice.

So basically, I have no ideas. The problem is with demand, not supply :cry:. As such, I think it'd be better without a forum component since there are so few of us and we already post here.

Re: Virtual On Force coming to XBLA?

I need to stop procrastinating and preorder this. What's the difference between Asia and Japan versions of Xbox360 games? Play-Asia has both, but the Asian version is much cheaper:

Re: What are you playing?

Crazy Taxi is now out on XBLA, and it's just as fun as I remember it. Despite being popular during the Dreamcast era, I don't think most people really got what this game was about. I think a lot of people just saw it as a novelty (haha, I knocked over a bus; haha the priest said I was "one hell of a...

Re: Intergalactic Shmuppreciation Month!

Guwange was released this week for 800 points. I played this game a few years ago in STGT, and it's really annoying to play for score because of the chaining (you have to keep your chain going the entire game to score well :x). If you're masochistic and/or not too serious about score, it's probably ...
