I've been playing touhou for a little less than 1.5 month. So far I can beat EoSD, PCB, IN, and PoFV on normal, with continues only. Am I progressing alright, or do I suck?
Also I've listened to ~35gb of touhou arranges during this time, since I'm very fond of them.

You suck.
Don't use continues and play at least 4 times before you move on to other things.

Really, 4 credits per day should be enough practice. Unless you suck.

Why not? It can't possibly be as bad as you guys make it out to be and if it is it'll make all the other games better in comparison.

It will kill you dead so fast that it'll crush your will to play. I 1cced MoF/PCB Lunatic, the latter with considerable ease, and UFO Normal fucks me up.

>> No.3249918

The UFO system is kinda sucky. You won't experience danmaku; you'll likely chase UFOs around and crashing into the bullets instead of avoiding them.

>> No.3249930

It's only a matter of practice. Sure, some people might be more talented towards the games, but anyone can beat them with enough patience.

Here's what I recommend for you OP, now that you finished the games with continues you can go back and do the stages by themselves in practice mode. Set yourself a goal, something like reach Pautcholi in EoSD Stage 4 without dying. Keep practicing until you achieve it, and if you are having a really hard time doing it grab some replays or watch some playthroughs on youtube, that can help a lot.

Try to practice survival goals like not dying with bombs (learning where you must bomb and deathbombing), how to use the border in PCB, etc. In time you can start trying runs again, and eventually you will clear them. And believe me, it will be worth your time, the first time you do it it feels awesome. It's what I did when I started Touhou with EoSD, and I was able to 1cc it in less then a week. I was really, really bad back then, with almost no experience in shoot em ups, but practice made it possible.

>> No.3249938

How the hell is that insulting? That just means that you like Touhou even though you suck at the games.

I've only cleared 1 Hard and a couple Extras, all by the skin of my teeth, and UFO Normal is a breeze. Some of the spellcards get me, but I haven't practiced them.

>> No.3249947

I sometimes quit in the middle of the run, because I rage. Stupid things happen, like, I bust my ass to beat a boss without using bombs, and at the start of the next stage, some random bullet kills me. I rage so hard that I can't continue after that. If I do, I keep dying.

>> No.3249956

Most people that like chess suck at it.

>> No.3249970

People use "secondaryfag" as an insult a lot. I think it started as a backlash against people who said "Touhou's cool, but the games suck. Don't bother playing them".
Not every "secondaryfag" is like that though. I think the games are awesome, but I really don't want to devote all the time needed to learn to play them.

Try it.
I suck horribly at the games, but I have some Extras unlocked, and I usually can get to the boss (and maybe survive until the second or third spell card). It's quite fun, actually.

>> No.3250018

Hey, that reminds me of myself. I tend to fuck up some of my later runs due to rage as well, especially when I die to the easiest spell cards. I've also got a tendency to avoid using bombs like the plague.

This only happens in stages 5/6. I think I'll take it easy and shut the fuck up as well.

>> No.3250021

Yes. Start with Suwako, move on to Mokou, Nue, Koishi, Ran and Flandre, roughly in this order. Also keep in mind that, unlike the regular game, most Extra cards have tricks to them, some immediately obvious (Suwako's opener) and some not (Mokou's hitboxless laser)

>> No.3250025


That's perfectly normal, especially in games like UFO where you are prone to do stupid mistakes. There is no way around it, keep your cool and refocus. It's also not that big of a loss if you die with no bombs in stock, it means that you did everything you could to keep your character alive. The practice I was talking earlier will help you memorize the stages too, which will decrease the number of such mistakes dramatically.

>> No.3250033

For those having trouble with UFO (normal), I uploaded a strictly survival replay last week. You might want to check it out:


>> No.3250042

I haven't even 1cc'd UFO on normal yet. I died 4 times already against her last spell, often with 2 lives, I don't know why, I get fucking nervous against it.

But yet, I was able to finish all the extras, except SA (I haven't really bothered to do it).

Yeah, let's take it easy.

>> No.3250060

Part of getting good at.. shit any game like this is learning to keep cool when you do something completely retarded. I've had awful runs turn into surprise 1CCs because I kept going even though I was sure I'd never make it.

UFO also added another layer of infuriatingness which I had to learn to deal with. I am zen as fuck now when I play.

>> No.3250098

I agree. Touhou, barring EoSD, also gives you a fuckload of resources to work with, so you can usually handle the game even if you die in a dumb places about three to five times depending on the game and your general skill. This also lends to hilarious moments like dying by crashing into Yuugi while trying to use the Alice doll bomb in a hilarious SA Hard 1cc or dying to Letty's second noncard on Lunatic and then somehow pulling a 1cc out of it. If you don't ragequit you can just laugh on and continue.

You're right... the better I get to Touhou, the easier I rage for my mistakes, and the worse I play after that. I punch my Keyboard a lot lately. That's horrible. I need to learn to take it easy.

Everything is practice. Keep going and relax because you need to play against the later stuff to get better, right? Don't measure your success in whether you complete it or not, but how reliably you can do it, or get close to doing it.

Dying to a random fairy bullet is better than dying to a spellcard that completely crushed you. One will probably not happen next time you play.

I bet all of you lunatic players are non-smokers.
On almost every game I've ever played, I could always somehow manage to smoke at the same time. But it's impossible while playing touhou. I need to take breaks every 20 minutes, for 6-7 minutes. And when I resume, I fail.

When I worked on my first SA Lunatic 1cc, I always had a hard time with the first stage. If I died there (Yamame being a dick in her opener), I sometimes quit and started over 10+ times in a row. Then I get to stage 5 and die.
Frustrated as I am, I ragequit the touhou game and open /jp/

Well, I do enjoy grazing but I honestly do not enjoy a scoring system that promotes bombing. Simple as that. It is also the game that punishes you the most for dying, being hit in Stage 4 might mean cutting your entire score by half.
