Heya, this is my first try at gameplay audio commentary. I've wanted to do this for a while. Sometimes just putting up replay videos can be a little soulless, so I thought I'd try talking over one to make it a little more personal and to give people some insite to my gameplay approach. I was a bit nervous at first but I loosened up half way through. It's harder than I thought! ;)

Gonna try and tackle the 2nd loop now I think. It isn't as intimidating as I first thought. Got to knock of Ben.Shinobi's western dominance of R-Type! ;)

Cheers Fuzzy :) I am going for a 2 loop 2million+ pts now. I wanna try and get in the world top 5 scoreboard on the 360 Xbox live version. Unsurprisingly the top 5 players on the scoreboard are all from Japan and are all 2-loop 1-Credit clears :/ gonna be a challenge, getting there slowly though.

I dug this out the other day when I decided to go for the 2-loop clear. It's a 'green-dot enemy' spawn map I made of level 4 when I made my replay last year. I needed it again because I'd forgotten where they all came from! :/ I find having a quick formation sketch of a particularly tricky section alot easier for me to get a mental picture rather than just a random cluster of enemies. It helps me loads, my memory is a bloody sieve these days..

The vid wouldn't work for me. Wanted to check if you're aware of the 7th level boss 'cheat' for racking up huge scores. Basically place your ship in the small indent of the boss structure (fits the nose perfectly) with attachment behind. Just keep firing until just before the boss times out, then kill yourself. Rinse and repeat till your last life. Bear in mind though starting mid 7th level is the trickiest place to start during 1st loop, so make sure you have that mastered first.

Heya. Yeah I'm aware if the milking technique on the level 7 boss and suiciding until your last life. The restart point after a death on the level 7 boss is brutal isn't it. I wasn't going for a highscore run on this replay. If I was I was I would've milked the level 2 boss instead of going for a quick kill. And I would've killed all the piston enemies on level 6 instead of dodging them.

I may revisit this in the future, the 2nd loop is sooo tricky though :/
