Lovely stuff ; R-Type is one greatest ever shoot'em ups ever and the graphics/art still stands up today imho.
Love the series in general and have Third Lightning (JPN - unboxed unfortunately) , R-Types (JPN- complete) R-Type Delta (complete- the JPN version with the better cover)
Also have Rtype Final 1+ 2 - haven't put much time into R-T F2 yet, but love what they've does with some of the homage stages. Have you played it?
R-Type a classic
Always a fan of that era scrolling shooters.
Nemesis and Salamander were my great loves in the arcades back then 💥

Picked up this Sharp Twin Famicom recently and currently playing Castlevania 2 :thumbs: Really cool system and complements my Master System very nicely.

Got a few games for it but always on the lookout for more so if anyone has any Famicom or Famicom Disk games they're looking to move on then give me a shout.

Return To Monkey Island!

The final part with Ron Gilbert back at the helm
Not a retro game, but sort of belongs here as I'm sure nearly everyone has played at least the first two.....
Only played for a couple of hours and it's really good - it's good to be back on Melee Island :)

Have you ever reached the point where you don't know what to play? As I've said before I have too many games I've never played that I ought to have played. I've always been someone who would pick a game up and play it because there is little investment but a lot of fun in reward: Mario Kart (all of them) and arcade shoot 'em ups being prime examples. But I've a lot of games where the opposite it true: all of the Zelda games, Shenmue 1 and 2, and way too many more. Anyone got any good examples where I can invest a lot and have a lot of fun? Bearing in mind I'm really quite impatient :D

Sorta retro, currently playing through ' Prodeus ', a 2 year old retro inspired indie game that's just appeared on Xbox gamepass. It's basically a rip off of the original Doom but done very well. I'm really enjoying it.

Thank you for the heads up. I love old school FPSs. I've played through every Doom / Wolfenstein / Half Life & Black Mesa I could ever find
(but not Doom Eternal which just didn't resonate with me and got too much, too difficult by half way in).

This looks right up my street.
