  • Does anyone know if there is a difference between Shmups and Bullet Heck games? Or are they the different names for the same thing? I’ve always been confused about it.

      Same thing. Jeez I wish this were ps3. xD

      Bullet hell is usually used to describe games like Sine Mora, Einhander etc.
      Shoot-em-up is used to describe games whose mechanics surround shooting in general. Hence, its a more er, general term.

      Of course the former is more accurate regarding this game.

      • MCCARTHY

        Neither Sine Mora or Einhander are bullet hell shooters, not sure where you got that from. Those are examples of “shoot em ups”…Bullet Hell games are games like Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu or Mushihimesama where the bullet patterns and frequency are enough to begin filling the screen/making it more about pin point accuracy/survival.

    • Logan Moll

      Bullet hell are games like what Cave make (Dodonpachi, for instance). A shmup is something like Raiden.

      Bullet hell is basically a subgenre of shmup.

    CalADrius, not CalDArius!… ;)

    The more I see about this game, the more I hope it makes it over here, especially knowing that MOSS said it would be region locked.

  • The real question is, “Will it be region free?” I hope so cause I already pre ordered the LE.
