Official Touhou Thread

The biggest issue with Touhou 11 was that all the playable characters downright sucked. The only good bombs are Yukari's and Aya's, and they suck at damage and scoring respectively. Reimu B and Marisa C are so weak that even when underneath a boss the whole time, you're at risk of timing out. Marisa A requires you to shotgun while unfocused in order to get marginally higher damage than Reimu A, and we call this the "high-power type". Honestly, 80% of the perceived difficulty of Touhou 11 is probably from the playable characters. At least UFO's characters aren't nearly as terrible, and the bombs are back to being unique and powerful (MASTER SPARK).
Oh, come on, Touhou 11 is by far my favourite Touhou. I agree with Yukari, every character sucked, except for Reimu A which is the only character that's actually playable in that game. I can get as far as Stage 5 without continues, that is, if I have any luck dodging Satori's Border of Wave and Particle (which I successfully did today, yipee)

Also, the bullets aren't that hard to dodge ... I mean, the patterns are right infront of your face and half of the attacks just require some precise movement.

Oh, and my favourite song from T11 is Stage 4's main theme, Heartfelt Fancy (NOT NANCY)

(I fail to find a video with meowing in Heartfelt Fancy. Without it, the video just doesn't sound ... right. Then again, while searching, I did find this totally awesome remix)
Finally !I have just 1cc SA easy modo for the first time...5 deaths and 1 bomb !
(and IN extra was cool, it is the only one I have beaten)
Also, EoSD Marsia's focused speed is just ridiculous.
Touhou 12 officially comes out today! But no download link yet :/ (also people are saying it may be the 15th)
[edit] Stupid Troopa! lol
Check out my profile for awesomeness!

I was actually thinking if I ever got into SMW hacking, I'd make a Touhou SMW hack straight away. It shouldn't be too hard, just have the level auto scroll and place generators everywhere. Then again, there's thte problem with the mega complicated boss sprites. Eh.

The closest we're getting is Matt's Zelda-Touhou hack though. That's still going to be equally as awesome as a SMW-Touhou hack.
If we did a Touhou-only hack, that'd be nice. With a Marisa sprite and enemies like those you'd find in the game, that'd be nice...
Heeeee, I remember when Lucas sucked at Orin, at that time I could get to Utsuho before him. Now he can get further than me at Koishi :<>:

On another note, I recently 1CC'ed UFO. Nue is actually much easier than Koishi because at least I can get to her 6th spellcard :D
I kinda agree with Mue that UFO is easier in some way than SA.

The cards in SA are...hurfy durfy.
I may not be the biggest Touhou fan around. I prefer EoSD, Perfect Cherry Blossom and Imperishable Night still. Didn't like UFO at all. 12.3 is fun though, but only in small doses.

For those who like the music, but don't like to sift through a lot of the crap, check out this YouTube channel (KakashiMr). He has a lot of cool orchestral arrangements up. There's also a connected channel for metal, and one for electronic. You'll find all of them on their blog.
The reason SA is hard is because the whole game plays like an extra stage. If you don't know how to capture everything, you can't bombspam through it, and you won't get your extra lives. That, and the only good player is Reimu A. UFO is harder, but it at least gives you plenty of lives and bombs to 1CC with.
I have:
*Touhou 6 - The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil
*Touhou 9 - Phantasmagoria of Flower View
*Touhou 10 - Mountain of Faith
*Touhou 11 - Subterranean Animism
I'm downloading Touhou 7 now.
My favorite Touhou game I have is probably Subterranean Animism.
And my favorite character is Cirno.
I really like the gameplay of the Touhou games. I find it amusing to dodge so many bullets.
(I think I'm "suffering" from the Touhou Obsession Syndrome.)
After seriously getting bored of the Touhou series, I finally decided to trash all my Touhou games. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

You probably just played them too much. I don't understand the obsession that some people have about the stuff. How can they be so into the story? It's really not the greatest thing since sliced bread. ;p
I don't know if it has anything to do with anything, but I've seeb a game called Touhou Mother, which is a mother spinoff... with... eh... I don't know. Looks cool though. Videos can be found on youtube.
Our world will stop advancing once humans manage to create sufficient magnificence for a whole lifetime. Until then, I just create.
Awesome video game music on my youtube channel
I played a large majority of the touhou games all of them......slightly legally and (i dont know why) But i just love games that have painfully impossible situations. My favorite is 9.5: Shoot the bullet. Its very hard, but it is rewarding getting 100% in an area/level thing... but the stories arent very good :P

I have:
The Highly Responsive to Prayers
The Story of Eastern Wonderland
The Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream
Lotus Land Story
Mystic Square

My favorite is either EoSD or PCB, but I also like STB. I never really got into the fighting games.
I'm emberassed to say that I haven't beaten one of them on Normal, although I came close.

I found this while browsing through YouTube, but sadly, it seems like it's put on hold for now.
