It depends on the popularity of the game. Some games have just shut down from lack of interest. But, yer, usually a few days/weeks and it goes into OB. Enough popularity may grant it a host in the US.

Go spam Nexon or ijji or aeria or something. >_>

Looks really easy... Though I guess it's wrong to compare to touhou, which is just ridiculous.

The beginning stages are easy.

However, there are some stages that are insanely annoying. I wasn't even half way done with all the stages, so I can't begin to imagine how hard it will be late game.

True, but if you play touhou a lot, you'll find your skills kinda carrying over. xD

O, but there's lag, too. I can't imagine how touhou would be like with lag factored in... hoho. Probably going to be a computer bashfest.

Speaking of Touhou...

Quote:
All music of Valkyrie Sky is arranged by dBu of Touhou.

It's kind of fascinating for Shmup lovers~!

Valkyrie was popular in Korea for that reason too~
Well, we know the two have something else in common besides for being Shoot 'em up games `-`


About the lag, I have never lagged in the game -yet-. I dc'd a few times, but never lagged.

Great. Hope it gets ported over to us (nicely, preferably) sometime.

Only lag I get is frameskip for having a crappy computer.

I have horrible experiences with GnG, hopefully it moves to a REAL publishing company soon.
Maybe a reliable one, OGPlanet? Or maybe its own.

I personally haven't seen any lag. And if you live in the West Coast, I'd say you probably won't. They usually have their servers in the area, I think?

It's really not that bad. o_o

Course, that's just one man's opinion. :X

Aren't GNG's global releases pretty much just to show off the game and see how people like it so that other publishers can pick it up if it looks promising?

And at level 20 on Wide Plain / Vigrid [19~22] I have to say there's only been a few bosses that were honestly hard to solo as a swordie. Then again, the game in general would be a ton harder if swordies didn't exists.

edit: made it to Velvet Valley / Hraundalur before server down!

Anyway, just in case anyone cares, my skills of choice for Swordsman would be ...

Throwing Sword [Defender] - 3 shots per level, wide, blocks bullets, does great damage. Can't slash while your sword is flying though.
Mangle [Defender] - I actually think this is the best defensive skill Swordsmen have, and as an added bonus it's a great way to kill mobs that come in from the bottom or any time you need your space.
Thrust [Knight] - hits in front and behind, and it's a bit wider than it looks. It's not particularly special but 6 shots per level is nice and it really helps your limited ranged repertoire.
Spirit Sword [Defender] - the only one I'm not sure about, but I really didn't find any of the other skills that great. This lets you get some extra firepower out without forcing you to aim.

that boss and mini boss in valhalla/black cloud was a pain in my butt. That thing shoots so many bullets, its not wise to go there without a swordie. I had to hide behind my party's swordie XD;; yay meatshield~

it gets really annoying at wide plain/vigrid when all those camouflaged thingys fly in front of you and then another batch of them spawn behind, shooting bullets as they go = =
Cant really shoot behind u when ur a ranger/hunter....

^: yeah, for a lot of the later stages you need to catch on quick when stuff is going to spawn behind and make sure you play up a bit. For all the stages like that, that I can remember, you're safe if you rush to the middle as soon as you see things start to come up ... then just slide behind them and blast them down.

Oh Shmup! It's a shoot 'em up!

Would suck being a melee tho. The melee person in the video looks like he/she's batting for flies o_O
I wonder how the pvp would look like.

I was a tamer in the cb. They do the most point damage overall to the rest of your team if you just hold down the left mouse button the whole time while spamming your ASDF keys when you feel like it.

My most useful skills was Wisp & Swarm (the bees). Bees have homing and the Wisp is high damage/Homing on one enemy. The next best skill would be the Dogs that criss-cross on your screen. The Crows was pretty lame, i'd avoid that skill.

I just held down Z. o.o
Movement with the mouse bugged me. I hate how the spells don't go in a straight line. Or how your monster goes for the first thing that shows up, usually a big monster, leaving the weaker monsters to mob up and go crazy shooting you.

You should also get Conjurer's skill with the one that hits 8 targets. It's a good mob control.
