It's interesting, often I end stage 1 with a lower score but higher multiplier than other times. Clearly, the score matters a lot less early on than multiplier, but it's funny how that works out sometimes.

I've been so busy the past 2 weeks or so (also playing Lemmings :lol:) so every attempt I did to try to beat the arcade and DC score has fell flat. I am proud of what I got, for those attempts were probably the farthest I did on a credit so far.

Looking very forward to Blazing Star next month! For those who may not have seen yet, check out the games we're playing next year here -- I'm still impressed by what we came up with.

I think Gigawing has killed my DC :cry:
Dug up a backup one but it's having trouble too.
I think they are my 6th+7th DCs... I blame microsoft.

That sucks :( Try cleaning your laser? If it's dead, at least dreamcast are cheap, I keep a couple broken ones around for parts.

Woot, I own the cart but I've hardly played the game. This will give me a good excuse to spend some quality time with the neo cab.

Need FreeMCboot? I'll install it on your PS2 Memory Card for free if you cover postage both ways.
Consoles: I have too much stuff
Arcade: No seriously, I have too much stuff. Someone grab a shovel and dig me out of my basement.

Yeah, looking forward to Blazing Star. GW just didn't resonate with me :/ Past 2 weeks haven't really gamed at all so probably a good month to have a game I wasn't digging.

Mike, did you recently get a gigawing from the Fox buy? If you did and are looking to part, I may be interested.

I had a virtually identical score with Ruby on CPS2. The slowdown really helps a lot IMO.
