Keeping up with the poo theme:



I'm actually genuinely enjoying this game. Underrated hidden ge--fossilised scrotum of our ancestors.

I'll maybe play SF6 if Sawada is in it. :whoopsie:

Since the arrival of our little one last December and due to moving house in February, this is the first time I've managed to get a console set up or play any real kind of a game :-o

Had a hankering to play this so that's what I've setup first 8-)

The Hayabusa in the stick was a bit sloppy so I just printed an oversize actuator for it, it's much tighter now :fastlove:

I’m finally currently playing Metal Slug X…

Working my way through the series aiming to 1cc them all.
I’ve beaten MS2 on a credit in MAME, and on the PC on the ACA port, but I’ve finally done it on real hardware so I can move on.

Already down to 3 credits on MSX, so hopefully I’ll be on to MS3 pretty soon.

Good luck with your 1cc attempt. :thumbup:
Does real hardware make a difference?

Honestly, with Neo Geo stuff… not really…

Emulation is really good on MAME, and I was playing them on the ACA PC ports (FB Alpha behind it, I believe?) and could not tell the difference between how they play and the cab.

The Steam port of Metal Slug however sucks. Does play differently. It’s been a long time since I used it, so I can’t give an example, but if I sat down to play it in a blind test, I could definitely tell you it wasn’t real hardware.
I think Alan O’Neil (level 3 mid boss) is the most obvious difference. Seems to play totally differently.

I’m determined to do it on hardware just for my own satisfaction really.
I’ve put the time and effort into collecting them, and tarting up cabs to play them in, it’s madness to then grind them on PC.

Fair play at trying to crack Metal Slug X - my stumbling block on X is the stage with all the mutants / the sewer level. As for MS3, forget it. That final stage there's just too much going on it's verging on unfair/credit feeding territory . . .

Missions 1-4 aren’t too bad.

Mission 5 is an odd one (mutant/sewer level) … you have to no death mission 5. If you lose your stock of grenades, it makes the runaway trains impossible and it ends the run.

Mission 6 you can lose two lives and still no death the final boss, but that final boss is so RNG heavy that you can also get there deathless and still not beat the game.

Same for both MS2 and X.

I’ve very deliberately not played much of 3 or beyond yet, so that as much as possible is a surprise when I get there.

As long as it takes, I’ll get all the arcade iterations beaten on a credit eventually.
No doubt it’ll be years, but there’s no rush.

I should probably record them really…

Hats off to you, Chris. I enter an existential crisis within 5 minutes of playing any game in the series. Been over 7 years since I touched one.

I've been playing Ultracore. It's nice.
