Great scores all around. I'm still playing. I was away for a week on a business trip, but I'll be back at it starting tomorrow. I love this game (only arcade mode though, I don't care for the other modes).

Still inching my way up:

ARCADE
328,907,020 - EOJ - ALL (Lx2, Bx0) - Yaezakura - X360



One note about my 369m score. I finished with 4 health bars, but my active one had taken [a lot of] damage from lasers. I believe adverse mentioned that a damaged life bar doesn't receive any bonus at the end of the game, so Lx3 would be the correct way to record it, right?

You should probably list it as "Lx4 (with some damage)". That's how they do it in Arcadia.

I thought I'd help you out, HVL, so I updated all the charts with my recent scores and all of iconoclast's scores.

I just can't get the true hang of this.

Arcade is actually my favorite mode as well.

I thought I liked Shin more, but it's too gimmicky.

Arcade is still tops for me but I like Zetsu too, it feels like a Black Label. Shin feels like a console arrange mode to me, not something I can really click with.

Nice scores. I liked Zetsu a lot when I first got the game, but I haven't played it since I started working on Arcade mode. I still think Shin is my favorite, but I keep going back to Arcade for whatever reason. Also, I got new score:

ARCADE
301,775,117 - iconoclast - ALL [Lx3 (with some damage), Bx0] - Kinsenka - X360

Maybe it would be easier to list the lives Death Smiles style, to keep it short. Like this run would be Lx2.5. Just a suggestion.

I've been watching the super play, but really can't grasp the techniques.

Arcade
308,612,760 - iconoclast - ALL [Lx4 (with some damage), Bx0] Kochouran - X360

I screwed up stage 4 in this run, but everything else went pretty well. Same thing happened to me with Type A... :-\

One more round of scores from me:

ARCADE
424,711,200  - iconoclast - ALL (Lx4, Bx2) - Yaezakura - X360

ZETSU
1,583,536,343 - iconoclast - ALL (Lx3.5, Bx0) - Yaezakura


I'd still like to get better Zetsu scores with Type A and B, and then go back to Shin eventually, but I'm feeling kinda done for now.

A break can always be helpful. After I did my 3 billion Ultra I felt completely burned out and wasn't sure if I'd ever play the game again. After a few months away...
