For me it's mainly Mushihime-sama [PCB] with some Mushihime-sama Futari Black Label runs thrown in from time to time. I'm enjoying the original Mushi quite a lot now. I feel the urge to top my old scores, and start learning Ultra mode.

I'm sure you could get a 1CC if you just didn't medal in a run (play it like GER). Otherwise, maybe you should try and do the infinite lives trick to clear the game.

To be serious, I'm actually completely desperated. I haven't experienced such difficulty before (maybe apart from doj second loop...) Not medalling isn't satisfying in any way, I wouldn't even make it to the highscore table lolz. I really need to consider trying other stuff like the infinite lives "bug". It's just not possible the regular way...

Consider it a "trick" rather than a "bug" and everything becomes clearer. Getting the trick to work is about as hard as 1CCing a normal Cave game anyway. After that the game becomes Score Attack PLUS mode! :righton:
If you want to compete with the scores of the top PS players in Japan (like Galford), you have to do this trick.

Pink Sweets is a very curious game that isn't meant to be played like any game that has come before it.

After just having credit fed to the end of the game I must agree with this statement. Stage 6 especially is absurdly difficult and probably requires that you memorize it from beginning to end to stand a chance.

@Gakidou
Even if you memorize everything perfectly (which isnt too hard after spending hours on Score Attack mode) the Rank is what really kills you. Stage 6 in Arcade Mode is about 10 times as hard as the Score Attack Stage 6. The snake/laser section is *impossible* even if you play super safe only using your shield ITS JUST NOT POSSIBLE!! OMG!

This is getting extremely Off-Topic. Maybe you want to delete it EOJ. :oops:

DeathSmiles has gotten most of my money lately, as it's the closest Cave game I've come to getting a 1CC on, so I won't rest until that happens.  The place I'm staying right now has a little arcade whose shooter pickings are slim but quality: DeathSmiles, Ketsui, and Mushi Futari Black Label, all at 50 yen a go.  I gave Mushi Futari a few goes on both Original and Maniac, but haven't touched Ketsui--it seems like one of those that would require a lot of consistent practice.

Back where I normally stay, ESP Galuda II, Dodonpachi, Ketsui, and Muchi Muchi Pork all get a little play when I'm waiting for someone else to get off the DeathSmiles machine.

For the past two weeks, Ketsui non-stop. I had a party to play Rockband last Friday and had the candy cab and Robotron cocktail on on for those not playing RB and Ketsui turned so many people off that I put in Mushihimesama. The next day I played a few rounds of Mushi and immediately swapped Ketsui back in. I'm really into it right now. The stage 3 boss is kicking my ass.

It's been Pink Sweets for me the past couple days. Trying to get that infinite lives trick to work! I'm oh so close.

Playing a combination of DOJ (trying for 100mil+) and Dangun (1CC).

Its depressing the amount of time I've put into DOJ for the crap score I have, hopefully I'll get a run which pulls all the practice together soon...

Dangun PCB (Aiming for better consistency, and ST5)
Donpachi PSX (Still trying to beat the first loop)
Mushi has gone on the back burner 'til I have a breakthrough with these. Need to invest more hours.

I'm desperately trying to get back to my old rhythm in this game, at the moment I can't even crack my old high score list  :oops:

Nothing wrong with that - I've been playing mine as well. Pretty good, but I'm interested to see how good Mushihimetama is and if it moves the game on some.

Galuda 2!

Almost broke 100M tonight. I don't feel I'm adequately taking advantage of the end of stage 2's scoring potential either.
