Touhou Hisouten Soku – Choudokyuu Guignol no Nazo wo Oe

The highly anticipated C76 is over. Some of you might be busy listening to all the CDs, some of you might be busy reading the doujins, some of you might be busy playing the games. Talking about games, if you guys still remember, 8 months ago I wrote a post about SWR. For SWR fans, C76 is a very exciting one because of the release of Hisouten Soku, an expansion which can also be played as standalone (naturally, I would suggest you to get SWR too because you will be missing ALOT of characters otherwise). Since the game came out over the weekend, I haven’t got much of a chance to play it, but so far it’s not disappointing. There might be bugs to fix, there might be aspects to improve, which we can bet on more patches on the way to change those, but it’s definitely way more fun than SWR.

If you want to find out more about the game, visit http://swr.guuchan.com. There are plenty of players on IRC, so come join us now!

Touhou Hisouten – Scarlet Weather Rhapsody

First post about something not related to music. So while eagerly waiting for Street Fighter 4’s PC version to come out (with network play support hopefully), I’ve been playing this doujin fighting game for the past few weeks, mainly because of its nice built-in network play. Talking about doujin fighting games, I believe Melty Blood series should be the most popular (seeing that there’re arcade versions and even an official version on PS2), but Touhou Project should be pretty well-known too. Never heard of it? Click here to read about it right now, you’re missing out something huge. As for this particular fighting game, you can read up its wiki here, and download the game here. You can always poke me on IRC to see if I’m around for some VS games, or other players in the channel on Mizuumi. There is a #swr too on Rizon but unfortunately it’s practically dead and… argh… gay, so avoid it for now.
