I’m not dead, just busy. So here’s a quickie that those in the shooter/shmup game community are excited about – Dariusburst Another Chronicle is essentially getting a full console (well, PS4, PSVita(which is dead) and PC) release although with a few tweaks and a new name. Given that the tweaks won’t make it exactly like my unique arcade version I can’t complain since I could still technically call that arcade exclusive. That and the English DBAC is unique among the other DBAC software builds out there, then you have the arcade exclusive hardware, etc. Hopefully this raises Darius’ profile out in the mainstream as it seems like many shmup efforts have been preaching to the choir as opposed to expanding the base. Darius is really good but I suppose the sea creature themes haven’t appealed to everyone.  Guess we’ll see.

And for those that have no idea what the heck I’m talking about with “DBAC”, here is a look at the arcade version of the game that I’ve had since 2011:

And for anyone looking for a fun Darius shirt, buy my Wheel of Fish shirt!

I addition to my professional work in the arcade industry which has ranged from operator to consultant, I like to write about other subjects that interest me as well...if I can find the time.

  1. This is really good stuff for the shmup community! I seriously can’t wait to see what has been done with Darius now. Your DBAC machine is awesome, and believe me, this won’t make me love it any less. Probably MORE if anything! 😉
