Struggling to get a clear on thunder force IV and getting closer to a clear on MUSHA. Just recently got a clear on Soldier Blade. I came to 16 bit shooters later in life and now absolutely loving it. Have so many more good ones to blast through.

Ginga Force- Not digging this at all. I could get over the game looking as dull as it does if anything actually felt good but it doesn't. Nothing has any impact, the verizontal nature doesn't make good use of the screen space and the store/upgrade system sucks since all the upgrades are crappy.

Aero Fighters 2, an oldie but a goodie for the Neo Geo.

Also been playing Dodonpachi Daioujou. I've never played a Cave shooter before, it is quite the trip to play a bullet hell, the patterns get very overwhelming by about stage 3, yet it keeps bringing me back to try some more.

Gekioh Shooting King/Shienryu (PSX) - It wasn't very innovative when it came out but looks awesome and plays very well. The SAT version considered as the best original home port but I'm good with the PSX port for now, I mean, yeah, the original (and SAT port) loops after the endboss and the PSX version doesn't but I won't make it that far anyway so no complaints from me here.

ThunderForce V (PSX) - Love it since day one, awesome game, challenging, looks and specially sounds great, a real treat.

ThunderForce VI (PS2) - I like it, not the greatest TF game but solid overall and just fun to play. Keeps me on me toes.

Battle Mania Daiginjo (MD). Holy crap what an amazing game though it is on the easy side. The 8 way control scheme takes just a little bit of getting used to, but once you do, you realize it's THE way to play.

Air Gallet and SD Gundam Neo Battling.

Air Gallet is a massively underrated gem that deserves more love than it gets! Plus it has the best ‘launch sequence’ of any shmup ever.

SD Gundam Neo Battling is a funky Galaga style shooter that’s not that well known.

I already have the SD Gundam Psycho Salamander PCB and am tempted to get Neo Battling and the Sangokushi sequel to Salamander but I’m not sure I want to pay the silly eBay prices and the thought of having a board shipped from Japan scares me a little.

Fiinally completed the first loop of Batsugun Special. It was the exA version so less lag and fixed slowdown (Saturn didn’t have slowdown!) so now I want to loop the Saturn version since it’s the one that’s kicked my ass for years.

Then maybe I should work on trying to get to the next loop

Put a couple of hours into Mushihimesama on the Switch over a few days. Tried all the modes, all the configurations and difficulties, this one's gonna be a pass for me. The game is just not hooking me at all. I'll keep on with Esp Ra De and Dodonpachi.
