Touhou

Post by Kei » Fri Apr 09, 2010 7:00 am

I'm planning on trying out Project Touhou this weekend... but there are, like, a bajillion games in the series. Does anybody know a good starter game for a total Touhou noob like me?

whaha. i can help here.

It depends really. I recommend you get one of the fighting games (Scarlet weather rhapsody for example), simply because it's an easy start to learn the characters.

But for the main series it depends.

Each game is virtually the same, only with unique aspects to some of them. It you want a clear, slightly easier and better gameplay, go for something like 12 or 11.

But if you want to start chronologically, then start of with the Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. as it was the first to be released on PC. or if you're a little deeper with emulators, try getting a PC-98 emulator (they do exist) and start with highly responsive to prayer, and play all 12 chronologically.

otherwise i can't help. I was in the same position, so i just downloaded which ever one i could find, then played that.

I did make my own spell card =O

This is my sig Spell card.

Nether spark.

"Shoots a long beam of dark light, extracting into three, the two others spiraling around the indicator beam, rising outward. While also shooting small danmaku randomly. As the two smaller lasars continue to rotate, they connect back to the indicator beam, increasing the size for one last blast."

After much deliberation, I decided to begin with Touhou 6: The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, since it's the first Windows-compatible game.

Now I understand why they call it "Bullet Hell." O_O

Yeah, it's one of my favorite web flash videos.

This 3D Touhou dogfight also pretty cool...

Touhou is rather hard to explain you see ^^'' It has far too many characters, and there is a single plot....apart from the fact that gensokyo was once a part of this world, untill youkai sealed it just before WW1.

And seeing as every game has it's own plot, it's rather difficult to answer the question, "whats it about"......it's about a shrine maiden, and a wytch, along with 50 odd other characters, ..um...fight?...using danmaku style fighting, using a form of card that was created by Reimu to give humans in gensokyo a change in battle...which "turns murder into a game"(Marisa Kirisame, Grimoir of Marisa, Afterword), and is more flashy then powerful.

..
did i forget anything?

i don't think so. Unless Marisa stolle the precious

thing
